Placerville Contractor Reaches #2 Ranking on Bing Local

For the longest time, Tromler Construction did not exist in the Bing Local Ranking for General Contractors in Placerville. We filled out all the necessary infomation but waited a very long time for Bing to list us. When they did, you had to dig real deep to find Tromler Construction - I first found it at #78. I'm not sure how all the analytics work but today we are at #2 in the rankings.

With a little luck maybe we can reach the #1 ranking on Bing, as we did in Google Local and Yahoo Local.

Apartment Fence Repair In Sacramento, Ca

If you are an apartment manager working hard to rent those vacant units, this may make a lot of sense to you.

How your apartment community looks has a lot to do with your ability to rent your vacant units. This may mean the landscape maintenance, the condition of the paint on the buildings, or tenant personal items hanging from the balcony - this list can go on and on. Right now it is tough enough trying to get people to come to your property to look at it, don't let the appearance of the property kill the sale before you get a chance to show the benefits of living in your community.

What if your office was located next to an existing fence that looked like this? Is it possible that the potential tenant may not believe it when you say that your community is well maintained.

This same fence may be repaired or replaced to change how the visitor sees your community. Maybe just a quick clean up and paint will do the trick. These changes may not sell the property but it certainly couldn't hurt.

A good first impression makes all the difference in filling those vacant units. Maintain the appearance of your property and better quality tenants will fill those open units.

General Contractor's Quick Response To Voice Mail Message

There are many things that take place in an apartment community to get a unit ready to rent once someone moves out. No manager likes there unit to sit empty for very long, so getting it turned around and "rent ready" is an on-going task. We often get calls from apartment managers to help do some things to get the place ready. The calls that we get vary from the minor fixes, to the major rehabs. Recently, we got a call from a community in Cameron Park to do some painting and things. The call went to voice mail, but we quickly got the job done for them.

Here is a short video of that call.

Cameron Park Contractor's 12 Second Vinyl Door Install Video Gets Hits

I'm not real sure how or why it has happened but I have a real short video that has been seen over 700 times. I don't even think that I have posted it anywhere. I shot the video to test the lighting in the area, uploaded it to YouTube just to see how long it would take, pretty much forgot about it until seeing how many times it has been viewed. Here is that video, all 12 seconds of it. Can you figure out what why all the views?

I will sit here as a baffled general contractor wondering if I should install another vinyl sliding door and make another video here in Cameron Park, Ca.

"I'm Not A Handyman, But Sometimes I Play One At Work"

I consider myself very handy around the house. Not too many things that I haven't done. Years ago I was a handyman and did well in that business. But now I'm a contractor, been one for years. Love the larger jobs that come with being a general contractor in the State of California. Lately, I find that I have been dabbling in the handyman domain.
Usually a homeowner has a minor problem and needs some advice about a big problem. I go to take a look and much to the surprise of the homeowner, the problem really isn't a big deal. I have enough experience doing so many trades, it has always been easier to just fix it right now. Homeowners and property managers love it - it costs less. Nobody wants to spend a ton of money in a tight market. Sometimes I feel like I'm getting the short stick. Almost like I'm taking business from myself. Then I think back.

Virtually all my work today comes from referrals - long time customers, customers I met yesterday, agents, colleagues, etc. The vast majority of these can be linked back to some small job that I did in the past. I still get the big jobs, so I guess I'll keep doing the small ones and be grateful.

Spring Projects Around the House

Home improvement projects, honey-do lists, yard clean-ups, the list can go on and on. Once spring gets here there is a new passion to get things done. The winter rains have subsided. The sun shines bright. We get this boost of energy that wants to get things done. So do it. Here is my advice to tackling all the things that you want and need to do.

1. Get pencil and paper and write down all the things that you would like to have done. Lists the big, small, cheap, expensive, easy and hard. Get them all down on paper, this is just the brainstorming session.

2. Divide the brainstorming list into three categories: Must do right away, Needs to get done soon, and If I get a chance. This needs to be quick. Why? If we spend too much time dwelling on which list to put it in, we are wasting time. The goal is to get started in doing something.

3. Start! I suggest starting with a "must do" item, pick the easiest item there. For example, replace the dead tree in the planter at the front door for the party tomorrow. Get this done, feel good about getting started. Once you've started, keep moving down the list. Begin the next easy "must do" item.

The key to this exercise is to get started by getting something done and building on it. Checking off items that are completed can do wonders for a procratinator like myself.

Hope this helps!

Placerville General Contractor Installs New Redwood Decking in Cameron Park

Redwood deck boards can rot and become unsafe to walk on, the solution may be as simple as replacing the deck boards. If the surrounding lumber is still structurally sound, a deck facelift is surely possible. Replacing the decking will be less expensive than replacing the entire structure. Ask a qualified contractor to give there opinion, most will do this for free!
