Unconventionally, Us

With the continuous growth in the central Texas area, follows continuous competitor growth. Competition isn't always about the level of skill set, but products offered and cost as well. Thus, we've decided to try an unconventional business model. 

       

 1. Limited services; instead of offering all the services we're good at, we decided to limit our services to what we're great at. Those services include:

  • Window installation and replacement 

  • Entry door installation and replacement 

  • Patio door installation and replacement 

  • French door installation and replacement 

  • Siding (Hardie board and vinyl)

  • Fine carpentry                                                  

  

2. Buh-bye office; yes, that is correct. We no longer have an office! From 2014 - 2016, 94% of our inquiries came from an e-mail, website inquiry or text message! Additionally, our office was set without a customer ever stopping in. We decided to try a remote style office, and it has been great. The extra bonus is the savings we pass down to you! 

 

3. No office phone number; yes, you read that correct as well. Making the choice to work remotely meant having  to shut down the office phone line. Don't worry. You can e-mail us at inquire@kgkhomeimprovements.com and  someone will get back to you as soon as possible. We're quick.

 

4. Subcontractors not needed; At KGK Home Improvements, LLC, we do it all. The only 3rd parties ever involved are our   partnered vendors. We're the point of contact, we come on-site to estimate the project and we complete the project. We're not the middle man and we don't send your project off to someone else.


5. Our customers are as important as our coworkers; one of our goals is to provide high quality workmanship to each and every customer. We don't believe that promise is obtainable without a great team of coworkers! Thus, we have a promises to them as well. One promise is to compensate them fair wages according to the market we're living in. Yes, we're in business to make a living, but we refuse to nickel and dime our coworkers to do so. We can't uphold our promise to our customers without upholding our promise to our coworkers. 

 

6. We're not the least expensive; our prices may not always be the lowest, and we may lose a few potential customers as a result, unfortunately; but we need to stay true to our beliefs. After reading #5, I'm sure you can begin to paint the picture. In addition to fair wage compensation, we believe in PTO and paid holidays. It's a way to show appreciation to our hard working coworkers. Our appreciation has contributed to little to no turn over and responsible and respectable coworkers! We also believe skill comes at a cost. We strongly believe in "you get what you pay for", going back to #5.
