ABOUT FLASH SERVICES
NO MARKUP. NO MIDDLEMAN.
That's what is different about Flash Services. Take a good look at the companies providing you quotes. Think about the layers of people they have in their companies—owners, managers, sales people. A good deal of money that you would pay the company would go to those people. But they are not doing the work. They are paying someone else, and marking it up. This drives up your costs, and lowers the quality of the person who is working on your house. Plus you are paying for offices, maybe showrooms, who knows what else.
Wouldn't it be a whole lot better just to deal with a guy with a truck?
With Flash Services, you hire Mike Fleshren. Directly. No markup. No middleman. He does the work. If he needs an assistant, you just pay the cost of that assistant. No markup. You will need supplies. Large items you buy yourself. Smaller items you reimburse Mike for. No markup.
And do you get something better because ALL your money is paying the person directly who is doing the work? Judge for yourself.

ABOUT MIKE FLESHREN
Mike started working on construction sites when he was 16. Gradually he moved into handling different elements of construction, and started learning the wide range of home remodeling skills that he has now. He even helped build entire houses. But as he worked for different companies, he became more and more frustrated with how they did the work. They would cut corners. They would not measure carefully, or they would skimp on materials, or they would otherwise do a poor job, saying "the homeowner won't notice."
Well, Mike noticed, and decided that the construction practices he saw were absolutely the wrong way to do this type of work. He started his own company in 1983 by distributing flyers to houses, and attaching them to telephone poles. He answered ads for drywall work. He put craftsmanship first, and word gradually got out. He kept a careful eye on quality by limiting his crew to himself and sometimes an assistant. His business was a success, and Flash Services has kept busy repairing and remodeling houses ever since.
Mike's family moved to Fairfax County when he was three years old, and he has lived in Springfield and Annandale.
