The whole premise behind FairTradeWorks is the fact that we have extremely satisfied clients like you.
Within 24 hours of receiving that form, FairTradeWorks will assign you an personal Advisor, who will contact you directly to set up a meeting and you will start planning all the details of your project together
FairTradeWorks Advisors separate us from everyone else! They are your advocate throughout your new home build or renovation. Our Advisors have a solid background in the industry with a strong understanding of client service, management, communication, logistics and design. To drive market value and save you money, your Advisor will outline a full scope of your reno or new home build and then submit it to our pool of qualified and screened contractors and trades and allow them to compete for your business. Lines of communications will stay open throughout the project as your Advisor monitors, inspects and reports to you online through our FairTradeWorks software. Most importantly, your Advisor will ensure that your funds are not released from escrow until the specifications of the scope have been completed successfully.
Next to having your own Advisor working with you throughout the project, this may be the most important aspect of the FairTradeWorks process. We’ve designed industry-leading software that will allow trusted contractors and trades people to bid for your job. That in turn will create competition for your work, and allow you to choose the lowest quote. It will also allow quality trades people the chance to find your job, and build their own reputations within the FairTradeWorks brand. It’s a win-win for both sides, because the contractors who are most efficient will be rewarded with more contracts. We’re also standardizing costs for materials and labour to set a level playing field for everyone.
You pay for the project and nothing else. Our fee is incorporated in the quote that you will receive so there will be no additional costs.
The whole premise behind FairTradeWorks relies on having extremely satisfied clients like you. So we put our contractors through a rigorous approval process before they can start bidding and working under our brand. At minimum, they have to be licensed, WCB liable, and have portfolios and references from past projects. Whoever ends up getting your job will be experienced and trusted, and in some cases they’ll be talented newcomers who are working hard to establish themselves and their reputations.
That’s hard to say, because it depends on how specialized your project is. What’s important to note is that we have a huge pool of qualified professionals including designers,general contractors and trades to ensure you get a fair price in combination with quality craftsmanship.
The FairTradeWorks model is universal and can be used from a small repair to high rise construction.
You won’t have to deal with your contractor directly, so any contractor issues will be dealt with by your Advisor. But in the unlikely event that you don’t get along with him/her, you simply call us and we’ll find someone you can work with. Client feedback is essential to our model
