The extensive crown molding and custom wood work to make each house its own character is done with high quality woods and finished to perfection. Tall Oaks are very nice people to deal with and build quality homes.

Tall Oaks is great. Their attention to detail while brainstorming through the design process and incredible patience to changes let us know they felt like they were building a home for themselves.

Tall Oaks Construction had excellent pricing, an excellent design, and excellent materials. They came in on time and under budget even in the middle of winter. They deserve a five star rating.

Dana from Tall Oaks was extremely responsive when we worked with her to build our house. We really enjoyed working with her and are still happy with our home 5 years later.

Tall Oaks Construction built our friends home, so I hired them to build ours. My overall experience was wonderful and I can't recommend them highly enough!
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.
