We have a network of experts and advisors that have helped us create a powerful little renovations company. We thought you’d like to meet them so we’ve asked our trusted colleagues a few questions; some silly, some serious.
Meet Francois Regimbald, Owner/Operator of Hands On Tile and Stone Ltd.
IKAG: What do love most about what you do?
Francois: The finished reward. The “look what I made” moments.
IKAG: What’s your favourite sound?
Francois: My motorcycle pipes
IKAG: How would your friends describe you?
Francois: One of a kind
IKAG: What is one of the biggest mistakes people make when undertaking a renovation?
Francois: Not hiring a contractor. Sometimes people think they know how to run a job, they know the steps and the sequencing but it makes everything harder for everyone. In the end, it’s just frustrating and they don’t get the result they want.
IKAG: What was your first job?
Francois: A&W. Cooking burgers.
IKAG: If you were a fictional character, who would you be?
Francois: Wreck It Ralph
IKAG: What have you learned in running Hands On Stone & Tile?
Francois: Not every job is not a good job, no matter how good the money is. I’ve learned the hard way that I need to step back and look for the right work, with good people. Taking the wrong jobs is stressful.
IKAG: Name a gift you will never forget.
Francois: My kids
IKAG: What got you into trouble growing up?
Francois: My mouth. It still gets me in trouble with my wife daily, apparently I don’t have a filter.
IKAG: One word to describe I Know A Guy?
IKAG: One word to describe your business?
IKAG: Thanks Francois.
