Fischvogt General Contractor
I was looking for someone to expand my master bedroom and master bath, so I shopped around looking for contractors with good references and high quality work. Chris was quick to get a proposal back to me and gave a fair price. His team was in my house for several weeks doing this massive job, and the entire time they were professional and worked around my schedule. Any time I had a question about something, I sent Chris a text and got a response either right away or within a few hours. The final result looks awesome and I LOVE our new master suite. Thanks Chris!!

Chris and his guys did great work. They were in and out quickly. They cleaned up after themselves. The price was good. They were easy to work with. I'll definitely use them for my next project!

ARC Construction Services, Inc.
On thursday october 13th at 9:07 am i was on I 95 N around exit 36 when a rock hopped out of a ARC construction truck, bounced on the road and since i was behind the truck and there were cars on my left and my right, it hit my windshield. I immediately attempted to flag the driver who looked at me, smiled and kept driving. I googled the company, called and spoke to, i believe, Melissa who was very compassionate, told me it is terrible that the driver did not stop and asked if i had the tag number so i found the truck again, made sure it was the same driver and took a picture at the light. She told me the Vice president will contact me to arrange repairs for my windshield but after a week and no calls from ARC construction, i called back and they told me they will not cover it and whenever the vice president has time he will call me. It is unfortunate that it seems i will have to come up with $250 to fix the windshield when it was the company's fault and they are not willing to honor what Melissa told me. I feel wronged

We've never been renters before now but have heard horror stories from friends regarding repairs needed on their property that the property manager does not address in a timely fashion. We are happy to be able to say that that has never been the case with Ellen and her staff at QP. We have lived here for over a year and the few issues that have come up are addressed immediately. The workers who have come to perform repairs are so kind, neat and quick. We are so happy that QP Property Management is the company managing our home.Dawn and Mike Graziano

Harris Brothers Construction Company
I hired this contractor for a bank job on hardwood flooring in 2015 without checking references or background. He took the check, bought half the supplies. Got my project defaulted from lack of communication with bank. When he finally arrived for job, be brought people off the street with no experience and left them unsupervised. They stole money from my property and the work they did was atrocious. When confronted he said he was not responsible for what his employees did and yelled at me in my own home. Evey bit if work he did had to be ripped up and the wood thrown out. Wells Fargo Bank even called him the most unprofessional contractor they ever dealt with. If you'd like a second review contact wells Fargo. I cannot stress enough not to hire this Company or Stanley Harris.

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.
