ATL Contracting
It seems the decline of this business occurred over the course of 2016. My wife and I thought we did a good search for contractors to complete our basement and back porch. They had worked on a project with Hotel Impossible, they had plenty of pictures of their work with basements being their "specialty". They didn't have the negative reports online until mid year, after our search. Halfway through the project, everything was fine. Then the delays started. Craig Render, the owner, was horrible with communication. He hardly updated us on the progress and delays. I frequently had to call/text him to see when the crew was coming. These calls seemed to prompt his coming in. Much of the work, sheetrock and some framing was done by one man. It seems, from reading more recent complaints, that ATL Contracting was getting short on cash to finish projects in late 2016. Thankfully, most of the project was done, but the crew was greatly incompetent. The plumbing for the bath tub needs to be redone, I am paying ESTES to fix the air-conditioning which was not installed properly. By the way, the heating was a big issue that was only addressed by ATL CONTRACTING because I pushed them on it. They initially told me that I could start using the heater without an air return installed in the unit. A small thing to be sure, but they even placed the vents upside down and without drywall screws/anchors. Estes now tells me that they didn't solder the piping correctly so it could keep coolant. Craig was an avid Facebook poster with At Contracting. The FB page is not updated since January and their website is now defunct. Stay Away. Thankfully we did not do our porch. I would tear it down for safety concerns.

The big bald guy in the Dodge Ram pickup is worthless. A total backwoods person without a degree trying to quote jobs. If he isn't the owner, he should be fired. Avoid this company ad their work is poor.

These guys were paid over half of the total charges to install flooring and stairs. They took my money and left my home unfinished. They never returned to finish the job. They damaged my stairs, they put laminate flooring down and the color doesn't match throughout the home, they also left all the trash and debris in my backyard. Horrible customer service, horrible work! The company is a fraud and is not even licensed by the BBB, as they advertise on their website. I am appalled on how they took advantage of me! Single woman with kids, I know, so you saw weakness I presume. But ATL contracting, LLC you will pay for your negligence!

They are an OK school but you would think that they were a prestigious institution for the way that they deny people acceptance. I wonder what makes universitits say nay or yay.

Company is run by a crook straight to the point. My partner had a lawsuit against company that was won. Still have not been able to collect settlement. Have been contacted by several others he scammed that have sued and unable to collect as well. Do not do business with this company unless you have money to lose!

Emory University Hospital
We have used the Emory Hospital emergency facilities when we have experienced serious medical situations. The in-take staff is a well oiled machine that helps you get to the medical team very quickly. The nursing staff is excellent and the doctors are outstanding. The facilities are the best with all the latest medical equipment for testing and the patient rooms are clean and pleasant. When you are having an extreme medical emergency, you want the best medical staff and facilities.

My favorite builders in all of Atlanta! They are a family-run business, building homes that are well made and fairly priced. They are great people to work with.

Dovetail completed the design and renovation on our 1930s home 11 years ago. We are very satisfied with the design and layout. Project was delivered 60 days late.
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.
