Repairs and maintenance in our homes and businesses never seem to end and neither do Jim Griffith’s skills from carpet, tile & upholstery cleaning to handyman to water cleanup and flood restoration to full scale construction projects, his company can do it all.
In addition to being your local handyman, Griffith Construction, Inc. and Griffith Carpet Cleaning offer 24/7 emergency water cleanup and flood restoration services to residential and commercial customers in Northern New Jersey.
Whether it’s a leaky skylight or a tide of flood water, water damage in your home or business is a nightmare scenario. The water, the smell, and the potential for problems make water leaks an emergency – whether it’s the middle of the day or the middle of the night.
The staff is fully trained in the most efficient methods by The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) for the latest in carpet, tile & upholstery cleaning and water restoration methods. They have the equipment, including truck-mounted extraction units and the experience necessary to handle the most challenging situations. They apply deodorizer to control odors and disinfectant to help stop the growth of harmful microorganisms. Their drying equipment helps to prevent the swelling and warping of floors and walls, as well.
“Removing wet carpet is no easy task–there is a great deal of skill that comes with doing it properly and preserving your property.” said Griffith. Griffith began working in construction at the age of 14. In 1999, he started his own business of carpentry repair and then moved on to painting and up to full scale remodeling. In 2008, when the recession hit, he realized his customers needed more handyman skills than remodeling work, so he quickly utilized his staff to meet those needs.
“We bring more skilled labor at reduced rates,” said Griffith. That skilled labor comes with the proper licenses and certifications from the state of NJ and the federal Environmental Protection Agency, including a lead safe certification.
Griffith Construction, Inc. is an owner-operated handyman service company that does not have to pay a franchise fee, and this allows them to keep their handyman rates competitive and cost efficient for home and business owners. They specialize in a wide range of services, including carpentry repair, concrete/masonry repair, painting, sheetrock repair, tile repair, tile re-grouting, deck repair, door/lock repair and replacement, re-caulking of doors-window-tubs, power washing, gutter cleaning, carpet cleaning and many other handyman and remodeling services in New Jersey.
Griffith said he is personally involved in each job and once he starts a job, he says his crew will stay until it’s complete. With the rainy season upon us, this is key in helping property owners clear out flood damage and get back to normal as quickly as possible.
“We’re a one stop shop,” said Griffith. “There’s almost nothing we can’t do, so you don’t have to call for several estimates. We’ll handle the whole job.”
When choosing a carpet, tile & upholstery cleaner, a handyman, flood restoration expert, or a contractor, Griffith suggests you be sure your choice is licensed, insured, reputable and has their own equipment. Less expensive bids are often cheaper because the company does not carry the proper insurance.
Choosing a contractor solely on price is not always the best idea,” warns Griffith. “If there’s an incident on the job, the homeowner could be out a lot more than what they thought they were saving by hiring the cheaper guy.”
With their reputation based on high volume and many return clients, Griffith said he is confident he can provide the right service for the right price.
