Clear Horizon Home Solutions did a fantastic job on the landscaping project, and it was a pleasure to work with him. When we moved into our first house 5 months ago, the front and backyard needed complete makeover, plus the driveway had really bad cracked asphalt. We hired Joel and we checked his references to make sure we do the right decision before hiring him because he did 2 projects in our neighborhood and we could tell by how they came up that he really did a great work. Joel explained to us all the different types of hardscape from gravel to artificial turf and he did a design a plan for us. Joel was very patiently with us and he went through several redesigns until we were happy and agreed on what we want, which turned out to be a mixture of artificial turf and drought tolerant plants in mulch. We wanted to replace the driveway with concrete and we requested Joel to do a pretty brickwork like almost all of the houses nearby had. Joel suggested instead that we go with pavers, saying that they would really make the place stand out. Joel was definitely correct. Our house is the only one that have pavers and it looks really beautiful, we got so many good compliments about them. He also helped us to select the color that matched the house which was had just repainted. The workmanship on the driveway as well as a double pathway we had him do out front shows great attention to detail, you can really notice that whoever did that work, did invest the time and effort to do it right. We love plants and flowers, but we mostly love the stone work that he did. The front and back yards turned out to be so beautiful and great. We are very happy with the results, and we highly recommend Joel and his workers from Clear Horizon Home Solutions to anyone who wants to remodel the garden/driveway or any other remodeling project.

This company (Clear Horizon Home Solutions) was great. After we purchased our home, we had to do a remodeling of several spots at the house. Due to some budgets issues, we decided to remodel the two bathrooms. The remodeling included the replacement of all the windows in the bathrooms, add a large slider door to the bedrooms, relocated the front door and replace the electricity panel. The day after our call to the main office of Clear Horizon Home Solutions, we were able to schedule a meeting with Roye for the following day. During the meeting, Roye gave us several ideas (which most of them we implemented in the remodeling and some of them, we left for future remodeling and several days after the meeting, Roye had an estimate for us shortly after. The price that was given to us by Roye, was fair and reasonable, so we signed the contract the following week. It took a little of time for Roye and his people to get all the necessary permits for the remodeling through the city, but once that this bridge was crossed, Roye and his workers including the supervisor started the work and we were able to see the progressed stages a week after since they start the work and we are extremely happy with the finished product. Of course, there were a couple of change orders along the way, but we felt that the price was good.

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.
