"The 15 minute consult we had regarding my chimney crown replacement was a small price and worth every penny considering that estimates for the crown and chimney work were between $3000 and $4000. Your review of the estimates was insightful as you noted ambiguous statements and issues that would have left me exposed to additional "unknown" costs. Finally, your assistance with specifications for how the crown should be built were also helpful." - Chris W., Cincinnati, OH
Bill is in his mid 70s and a subscriber to the FREE AsktheBuilder newsletter. He wanted to save $500 and install a trap under a shower himself. Two previous attempts ended in miserable failure. He finally decided to come to me for help. Here's what he sent after my advice produced success:
"Did I get my money's worth in consulting with you? You bet I did! Here's a short list of what I learned:1. How to cut pipe square2. How to properly measure pipe length3. The importance of seating joints all the way4. The proper sequence for installing pipe and fittings5. The importance of sighting and dry fitting pipe and joints6. To be humble and ask for help when I don't know what I'm doing7. To have a beer when the job is successfully completed (that was your BEST advice!).Thanks, Tim, for helping me have that sense of accomplishment at doing the job myself. And now I'm able to maybe coach a younger do-it-yourselfer who needs to know these things too. I really appreciate your experience, and the way you put your thoughts across to me. I learned - and I did it myself!"

Lynn had a dreadful wet basement problem. She had quotes that exceeded $10,000 from contractors who were going to do the WRONG thing to solve the problem. I shared with her how she could get a DRY BASEMENT for less than $1,000.
"Hello, Tim --
It was wonderful to talk to you and I am so grateful for your expert advice. We both know you have saved me thousands of dollars.
You didn't overload me. I took notes on everything you said, and you explained things very well and logically. Now I can sleep at night and not worry about this.
I am so grateful to you. And I'll be consulting you for every house project we do.
Thank you so very much."
