Claudio Alvarez Construction Inc
I had a water damage in my home due to a broken pipe in our kitchen. Claudio Alvarez construction got right on site and proceeded to deal with our insurance company to let them know what was going on and what the damages entailed. They got our home dry and were able to minimize the damage before we had any mold or mildew. It wasn't a huge job but the majority of the work was in our kitchen which was a big deal to my wife. My wife and I didn't want to be out of our home while repairs took place, so Jack and Colt talked with our insurance company and got approval to provide a temp kitchen setup so we could have a sink and range to cook on and not have to leave our home. Service was great and all the workers were professional and knew what they were doing. I will be using them and telling friends about Claudio Alvarez construction on any future projects.
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.
