Hm General Contractors
Had them come out and walk a property to remodel ten days ago - after multiple calls, they finally got back to me today and said that they are not able to provide an estimate because they cannot take on new projects, but have other contractors that they recommend...

ARI Construction
I had work done on my house due to damage from Hurricane Ike. Work was great and fine until last night during the rain. My new roof sprung a leak. Since I'm under warranty, I don't anticipate any problems getting it patched/fixed. However, they don't show any good business sense when a past customer, or anyone for that matter, is trying to contact them through the office phone system. First, your only option is to leave a voicemail. Second, 3 of the 4 voicemail choices are full so you can't leave a message anyway. I see a trend. They are not being responsible by reviewing and archiving old voicemails. I am very disappointed trying to contact them for a very simple problem...very disappointed.

J H Quality Construction Services
WORST experience dealing with a business owner (Jack Higginbotham). Very unprofessional and started yelling at my staff who was contacting his office for updates on the repairs. He continuously argued that I contacted him too much and when I asked him what the process of the repairs were, he REFUSED to go through the scope of work. Paid him in January for material costs and the repairs have yet to start and it's mid-April...Mind you, this is just to repair a window and fireplace!? I've never had to deal with a business owner like Jack, and if it weren't for the management company, I would have fired Jack a long time ago. As a project manager, I highly recommend others to stay away from this company unless you're looking to keep your $ in a hole for 4-5 months.

US Construction Services
I hired this company to restore my home after a fire in January 2016. It took 9 months for the repairs to my home to be completed. There were 3 months in which nothing was done to the home and as a result, my home received copious amounts of water in due to the heavy rains that occured in May of that year. Sheetrock had to be replaced due to mold. I asked for a statement regarding the materials purchased and was informed that is not how business was conducted. In August,I left my job to be on site full time, as the project manager was no where to be found and the sub contractors had been given erroneous information. Three of their subcontractors either never showed to the job, or arrived late and left early. My family moved back into our home in September, with several items needing to be completed on a punch list. The list was provided prior to moving back home and then two more times subsequently during the holidays. It wasn't until after I filed a complaint with the better business bureau did the home get completed. The owner of the company drafted a letter for me to sign. I did not sign that letter and instead drafted my own. The letter drafted by the company is now being circulated to potential clients and the complaint with the BBB has been mysteriously removed.

NB Contractors, Inc.
I hired N B contractors to find a leak and fix after 3 other contractors failed. Everyone else had address issue through the flashing the outside deck and caulking. Bob the owner was the only one that took the time to take the floor inside the house up to see that it was coming from the outside underneath and through the wall. There of been no leaks since he worked on it. You cannot even tell the floor had been pulled up . NB contractors created an outside patio area and solved a drainage issue. Bob has always been professional. His crew shows up in a timely manner and cleans up after themselves. Bob comes and checks on all of the work. I'm about to remodel two bathrooms and NB contractors are the contractors I will use because I trust them. Deborah

Stillo Construction
Stillo did a very lengthy series of repairs on our house. What started as a seemingly small job mushroomed into a much larger job very quickly as a serious amount of underlying wood rot was discovered. All work included, Stillo performed about 6 months worth of intensive work, stripping off a significant amount of improperly installed stucco. The poor initial install had caused some walls to be so severely rotten that the old studs looked like pulp. As a former contractor myself, I was very discerning and thorough in the selection process leading up to selecting Stillo Construction for this job. Stillo was 1 of 5 contractors allowed the opportunity to bid out this job. With all factors considered, I decided Stillo was the most fair price given their extensive knowledge, experience, large crews, and attention to detail.Being a 6 month job, a few issues did come up. At one point, during the repairs, a tarp blew loose during a rainstorm, and some leaking resulted. Stillo repaired all of the minor damage without any argument, free of charge, and made it look as if nothing had ever happened.In the end, Stillo was contracted for numerous jobs. Every bit of work, or change to any work was very professionally handled through detailed, and itemized contracts. Stillo also provided their proof of insurance without me even requesting it. They provided a $1 million liability policy.Stillo did an excellent job with clean up, and considering that they virtually rebuilt the house, we could not be happier. All the paint was matched perfectly, tile work looks amazing, the stucco looks great, and was done to code, and built to last. Every step of the way, Frank was happy to show me the underlying rot, and justify any work that needed to be done. Fantastic work overall. Without a doubt, Stillo has to be the best Stucco contractor in the Houston area, if not in all of Texas. I would give this job a 6 our of 5 stars. Excellent work.
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.
