Island Tradesman was born from the need to find quality Jamaican tradesmen and quality management of projects.
We understand the pains that customers experience with inexperienced tradesmen, who provide less than perfect workmanship and then disappear; or tradesmen who outright does not complete their jobs; or the customer who lives overseas, hires a contractor who does not supervise the workers resulting in them not getting what was requested.
Why use Island Tradesman?
We consider ourself as Project Managers, coordinating the touch points of the project and managing the people involved. We sub-contract experienced tradesmen, whose work has been seen and approved in projects we undertake. Their attitude, knowledge and professionalism are paramount to our delivery of service. Project times and costs are estimated and held, as well as we take responsibility for any faulty workmanship. We also handle material purchasing. And most important, we pride ourselves in full communication with our customers.
That means you the customer can relax, knowing that your projects are being managed and executed in a professional way.
"When I moved to another parish some years ago, I did not know where to turn to find a reliable carpenter, electrician or handyman. Friends were reluctant to refer persons they knew! I eventually got a good referral. and it occurred to me that Jamaica needs a business that specializes in knowledgeable professional tradesmen. Having not seen one, even a decade after, I decided to start this business." ~ Wendy Lee, October 2015
