A mix that works -- venturing out paid off for East Brunswick-based contractor A-TECH General Contractor LLC ( Is Seen On Monday, February 4th 2019) JIMMY FLOOD STANDING TALL!!!
East Brunswick, NJ -- With some 30-years of experience in all kinds of construction (JIMMY FLOOD started at the age of 18, when he built his first home), Flood explained to www.NJnewjersey.com reporters “it became natural to do kitchens, roofs, windows, sidings, flooring and many other home construction jobs and the referrals trickled in!
With more than 3,000 plus establishments in New Jersey responsible for remodeling construction such as additions, alterations, reconstruction, maintenance, and repair work any general contractor must stand out.
Jimmy Flood has done this by genuinely helping people.
He operates A-Tech General Contractors LLC, along with his partner Stacey Murray, who he described as the “backbone” of the company.
But currently he focuses on new additions, flooring, tile, bathrooms, knocking-down walls, opening up kitchens, and/or adding improvements such as backsplashes.
“I treat every job I do like it’s my own home; my own project,” Flood adding that his company also contracts to do: painting jobs, crown moldings, roofing/siding, veneer stonework and wallpaper jobs, including old paper removal.
“We get in-and-get-out very quickly with proper town permits,” said Jimmy Flood. “And I always tell them to get multiple estimates to choose from.”
Take one category -- home rehabs and or flipping--which A-Tech does its share of. These clients typically buy properties to either rent or re-sell, so, staying within budget is key for this category. As always, Flood explained that his crews finish these jobs quickly and professionally, citing a couple of recent rehab jobs completed by A-Tech in Old Bridge, New Jersey.
“I have six subcontractors on any given job at any time,” added Flood, citing electricians and HVAC crews, among many others.
As for “high-end” clients/work, who will of course sell their homes many years down the road, Flood said, “They do things only once – they don’t do things twice,” so they need a contractor with a stellar reputation.
“People don’t know who to trust anymore,” he added, “lots of people are afraid of contractors unless they get a referral.”
Though Flood said he’s had success with Social Media, he credits positive “word of mouth” in building a network of happy customers over the years.
“It’s all word of mouth; it’s all referrals; it’s all jobs that I’ve done for clients – that’s how I keep moving!
Accommodating patrons with custom/miscellaneous jobs is not uncommon.
For instance, if a client needed gutters repairs and cleaning, or other miscellaneous work, he’d happily arrange it – sometimes for less than what others are known to charge.
He knows that his clients take pride in their investments, and their home is a very big one for them, he said.
While Flood’s company will accept work in nearly any geography, he cited some recent “high end jobs” in Annandale, Long Branch, Asbury Park, Middletown, and Little Neck Harbor, NJ.
Then there’s seasonal jobs. For example, the township of East Brunswick, among other townships, depends on A-Tech for much of its snow removal needs. Flood also does work for about 15 realtors, he added.
