It Makes Sense to Farm out the Big Jobs

Posted by Mark Hoppus in Uncategorized

For quite some time, I thought about purchasing older condominiums at lower prices, fixing them up on my own and then renting them out to tenants. I wanted the ability to make extra money while also offering people a nice place to live at affordable prices. After going through with it and purchasing two great places at a great price, I started out with the plan to do all of the renovation on my own. But recently, I found myself needing to find a company that could handle saw-cutting in Colorado because I ran into some work that I just could not tackle easily myself.

The first place that I bought had a very large concrete patio in the backyard that spanned the width of the year. The patio was constructed next to a very old and enormous Oak tree with an expansive root system. Those roots grew up underneath the patio cracked the concrete. I originally started to try to break up the concrete with an axe, but quickly found that I could do very little of that on my own. I would say that I was able to break up about a couple of feet in one hour at most. Considering how much concrete thereis, it would take me many weeks to break it all up on my own, and that did not include the time it would take to haul hundreds of heavy pieces away.

I found a well-established company nearby that has been in business for about 30 years. The gentleman I spoke to said that he has a hydraulic jackhammer and could get the cement broken up in just a matter of a few hours. Then, he could bring in a large truck and haul away all the pieces afterward with the help of three other employees. He gave me a quote after seeing the work he would need to do, and I could see that it would save me a lot of time, so I hired him on the spot. He and his employees finished the work by the end of the day and saved me a lot of trouble.
