Home is the place where we live with our families and pets. We also enjoy this place with friends, build countless memories, and the place we can truly just be ourselves. It is our safe haven and our comfort zone. Everyone will eventually need a home improvement project plan. This is where Chaperon LLC, also known as JBC Construction can help you with a variety of their services.
Chaperon LLC is a minority-owned and operated business in the Renovation, Remodeling, and Repairs: Industrial Buildings business/Industry within the Construction – General Contractors & Operative Builders sector. They offer a variety of services such as attic conversions, bathroom remodeling, cabinetry, flooring, painting, roofing, windows/doors installation, and so much more for residential homeowners at affordable prices.
Joseph Chaperon, the owner, chose this line of business because of his passion for construction and his familiarity with doing small handyman work. He wanted to go bigger by working under a company, so that lead him down the path to creating Chaperon LLC. The business was founded in January 2013. Therefore, the company has been in business for approximately 7 years.
The toughest thing Joseph went through when opening was trying to get jobs and clientele. However, the inspirations that kept him going as he was getting the business off the ground were the difficulty and lack of good-paying jobs in his field. Joseph said, “being new and fresh out of college brings many difficulties in finding jobs instantly in my field of work. When I first got hired in the construction business, it was only temporary. So once I got laid off from that job, I went towards my own business. I got tired of working with people, not knowing if it was permanent or not.” Also, that was his most difficult challenge, but it turned out to be an inspiration as well.
Due to Joseph having his own minority-owned and operated business, the toughest part about having a business in 2020 is finding time for himself. It’s his own company, and he is also running it himself, so he always wants to make sure that things are being done right, and that customers are being served. He said, “it’s hard to be laidback because this is my own personal business. It’s not someone else’s business where I can figure things out at a later time, or do it tomorrow. It is my own company. If I want the business to succeed, I have to spend more time on my business than on myself.”
The number one way Chaperon LLC currently brings in new customers is mostly by word of mouth. They try to do quality work so those customers can refer them to other customers. They also partially self-contract for insurance companies, and that leads the business to other opportunities.
Six months to a year into the future, Joseph would like to see his business running itself. Whereas instead of him doing many of the manual work himself, he would like to see what he can do more hands-off, in terms of manual labor. His focus is on directing other people and companies to complete the work for his business, which contributes to finding time for himself.
The best way for readers to connect with the Chaperon LLC team and to take advantage of what the company has to offer is through their website. This is where customers can see what they do, who they are, and who is on their team where they can post accomplishments, and where customers can get to know the company better and to understand that the company is there to give quality work.
