Durham Contractors
Shoddy work. Left old parts and debris on the shower floor. Replaced the shower head with big blue tape showing that looks like a mistake (subsequent plumber says it should never look like that). Changed temperature in downstairs water heater when problem was upstairs. Said no issue with upstairs water heater, just needed to turn the heat up (which significantly decreased the water pressure and they said that was normal because the heat stirred up sediment) when subsequent plumber took 5 minutes to say the water heater was about to go out and would likely break and spill water all over if it wasn't turned off. Was approved by home warranty and replaced a week later. When they were called to deal with remaining issues they made an appt to come back, never showed for the appointment and then refused to come back when called back. Terrible!

Elite General Contractors
This company was used by our home warranty. Now, first off, most all home warranty companies have the worst contractors... I know this first hand. But I will say Elite was a GREAT company and I believe that they are just starting out, so once they get established they won't need any home warranty company to help them get business. They have been awesome and did a lot of repairs on our pool, I also had them do some upgrades out of my own pocket because of their cost and espertise! I don't normaly write a review unless it's to complain, but I had to take the time on this company!

This was a home warranty visit because of a mainline stoppage. Had a different contractor out the same day who didn't do anything but tell me he couldn't fix the problem...Durham guys showed up and had the issue fixed in less than 10 min. Then on top of that called their shop and fixed and additional issue with my washer/sink backup problem because they didn't feel right leaving me with that issue for my husband to fix. AWESOME JOB and AWESOME SERVICE!!! A++++++

Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
