Complete Renovations
Bought a home that was renovated by this "contractor" about a year ago. Let's just say everything looked nice for the first couple of months then went all down hill from there. I only purchased a flip so I wouldn't of had to do a lot of work. I basically have to redo almost everything that they had done and do it right. They finished the basement but neglected to insulate it, useless. Ran new duct work to the upstairs and left a gaping hole so all the cold air went straight through the walls into the finished basement. Every place that had drywall either installed or patched is cracked and falling apart. They even used finish nails to hold some of the ceiling drywall up then patched it. Very shoddy work. Would not buy a house or use this company for any home remodeling.

Country Home Real Estate
I completely agree with the review below me, and she is still the same. She refused to turn my electric(which I pay for) on for a week after I blew a fuse. I left messages and called and never got an answer back. She will leave a note on your door instead of personally talking to you. She refused to give me a copy of my lease, she'll threaten eviction over the smallest things. Shes rude and unethical. I have never hear from anyone in my area, or read online and good reviews about her. Do not rent from her, trust me it's not worth the hassel she'll give you.
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.
