How do you handle change orders?
Throughout the project we try to keep an open line of communication with the customer. This allows us to inform them of an issue that may not have been anticipated, such as the need to repair rotted siding. After discussing the issue and cost with the customer, a change order would be issued before proceeding with any additional work. We also monitor projects for efficiencies that could be obtained by increasing or decreasing the scope of work.

How is old paint recycled?
The state of Vermont joined a growing list of states by creating a program that charges a 75 cent tax on every gallon of paint sold. This allows contractors and homeowners alike to be able to return unused and old paint to a participating paint dealer for recycling at no charge. At SPC we are frequently going back and forth to these stores and would be happy to recycle any old paint for you.
