We strongly encourage those needing our services to call us as soon as possible and not to wait until the last minute.  We are often fully scheduled at least a few weeks in advance, with as many as 20 to 25 projects active at any given time out of perhaps a hundred that we work on in a given year. 

We try to start on new projects including any needed visits within about three weeks, with an initial report within about three weeks after that.  Unless we get your contract very early in a month, you should typically expect us to be working on your project the following month.  Sometimes we can squeeze in an earlier start or completion of a small project, though this may require a premium fee.

Beware that the backlog becomes longer late in the year when everyone who calls wants their work completed before year end.  Those who wait until October will often find the schedule is already filled for the rest of the year.

If you need work in the summer, try to call in April or May before rates increase for new jobs started in June.
