Dan Dolan Homes
Quality of home overall is good (some high quality contractors), however the communication and follow-through is horrible. This was true throughout the building process and got significantly worse after closing (they got paid). I just spent 2 months trying to get a response to a concrete issue (cracking and chipping after less than 2 years). Dan and Kevin finally came to the house last night and effectively told me this wasn't an issue to them.Dan talks a good talk about quality in his homes. However, I do not believe he backs this up when resolving issues.I would NOT recommend this builder for anyone expecting a high-quality process and result in building a home.

Foley Contracting
We recently hired Foley to reside our home and replace some windows. Our experience was fantastic!! They definitely exceeded our expectations. The crew went above and beyond making sure everything was perfect. They were also very polite, courteous and they cleaned up every day. It was a pleasure to do business with Foley.

Iossi Merv & Sons Inc
Daniel Iossi inspected my roof last year before I purchased a home and gave it a good review and wrote that the roof should last another 5-7 years. My roof began leaking and I had another company check it out and they found patches all over the roof and the valleys that were suppose to be intact were found to be the cause of the leak. I called and spoke to Dan and he hung up on me. I would have paid less for the house if I had of known I was gonna need a roof. I hired Iossi to protect me but all Daniel did was to do a sub-par inspection, cost me (not previous homeowner) the price of a new roof and make himself money. Nice Professional job. I will do my best to pass this information along. Marcia J. Mount
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.
