You Go On and On About “VALUE” – What EXACTLY Do You Mean?
Happy you asked. We’ve probably all heard the old cliché; “you get what you pay for.” But what a lot of people don’t know is that the cliché is an abbreviated version of an immutable law of business. The full version of the business maxim is a much better read:

“There is hardly anything in the world that someone cannot make a little worse and sell a little cheaper, and the people who consider price alone are that person’s lawful prey. It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money – that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything.

Because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot – it can’t be done.

If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.”

Fundamental Common Law of Business Balance – thought to be written by 19th-century philosopher John Ruskin.

To put it bluntly, in the home improvement industry you will always get EXACTLY what you pay for.

Case in point: over 80% of the work in home improvement and repairs happens where you can’t see it. It happens behind the walls of your siding and under your roof shingles. Because you can’t see the work being done, many roofing, siding, and window contractors around St. Charles and O’Fallon know they can always cut corners to pad their profits. It’s one of the reasons why so many estimates LOOK great on paper, but are a recipe for disaster in reality. We absolutely refuse to do business in this way.

It’s why he harp on value so much. When it comes to roofing, siding, and windows, we fundamentally believe that you should always get EXACTLY what you pay for… NO, scratch that. You should get more than what you pay for.

Case in point: take a look at your roof. If you are paying for a roof that is supposed to be installed with SIX 12-gauge diameter, shank and head nails no less than 3/8th of an inch long then by God that is exactly what we are going to use to install it. Not four nails, not five nails – SIX.

Why? Because anything less will result in a roof that will fail prematurely. And it’s what you are paying us for…PERIOD. It’s really unfortunate that so many roofing companies in St. Paul, MO, St. Charles, and in other areas are so willing to cut corners to pad profits.

Bottom Line: I ABSOLUTELY guarantee you that our work proposals are never going to be the “cheapest.” It’s impossible. There’s ALWAYS some contractor willing to work for a little less money, and use products that cost a little less.

BUT… I also promise and guarantee you that our price is fair, honest, and the absolute best value for you money. There will be no games, no gimmicks and no gotchas.

At EZ Home solutions, you will always get EXACTLY what you pay for.

Why Don’t You Carry Just One Brand Of Products?
Simply stated: beware of roofing, siding, and window companies in St. Charles (and the surround areas) that only has one product line. The reality is that no single product is the best solution for everyone. Homes are like people…they are all individuals and no two are exactly alike. The product used on a siding installation in Eureka might be amazing, but it could very well be a disaster waiting to happen on a siding installation in Chesterfield. In short, what might work great on one home could be a trouble for the next.

Just take your roof as an example. An asphalt shingle is an asphalt shingle right? So I should be able to install any shingle on your roof. Nothing could be further from the truth. Asphalt shingles come in different grades. And one of the criteria is the shingles weight.

In an older home, your roofing structure may not be able to handle the weight of your new shingle. But if it’s the only shingle I carry, then that’s what I am going to sell you. In the end the shingle looks great and works great… until that first Missouri snowstorm hits. The weight of the shingle coupled with the weight of the snow and BOOM… your newly installed roof caves in.

Bottom Line: At EZ Home Solutions, we are all about educating you on a solution—NOT selling you on a product.

Why Should I Trust You To Work On My Home-Improvement Project?
Funny thing about “trust.” You can never really know with 100% certainty – that’s why it’s called trust.

But when it comes to hiring ANY home improvement company in St. Paul, St. Charles, and surrounding areas, there are a few things you can do to help you make a sound decision.

First, you can see what past clients are saying, as well as what industry peers are saying. That way you can make a decision based on a company’s history and reputation.

For example, did you know that we were named as one of the absolute best remodeling companies in the whole country? Not just the best remodeling company in St. Charles. Not just the best remodeling company in Missouri. The best remodeling company in the entire USA. We are one of the top 500 remodeling companies nationwide.
