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.

BRAIDS BY ANAN
I have been to the shop around 4times, and I have left with astounding hair styles everything (except once). The first time I went, I had recently did the big chop and left myself with about 1/2 an inch to deal with. Then I just got tired of the same look and seemed a shop that had reasonable prices and good quality, without leaving me with patches. That day I left the shop with freestyle braids, multicolored, only spending $150, and about 4hours (due to gripping issues). The second time I went to the shop, I decided to get a see in for prom (you know, to spice it up). My hair came out weird, spending about $275 buying hair there (this price includes $85 for the actual sew in job, roughly $190 on wet and wavy 18"-22"). The problem was you could see my braids in the front of my head, and it looked like I was wearing two wigs. So the next day I came back (you have 3days to get it fixed) and my hair was fixed on the spot, and I walked out looking magnificent. The third time, I went I received another sew in and only spent $95 since I had the hair already, and it came out great. The fourth and most recent occasion, I received boxbraids freestyle for the price of $175, and I love it!!!!! The original price for the style I wanted was $150, but since I'm natural the better style (which they explained to me) would be the boxbraids. Each time I go to the shop, you can see the professionalism (excuse my poor grammar) growing and the atmosphere becoming more costumer friendly, I love this shop and would strongly recommend to you. P.S. they know their stuff, so if your like me and don't really know the ins-and-outs of weaves/braids then they'll explain it to you

J Dall Hair Salon Company
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! I LOVE THIS SALON!!! From the moment you walk in, from the time you walk out, everything is absolutely perfect! Setting an appointment online, was a piece of cake! Even booked after hours! I have been to several salons trying to dye my hair red, unfortunately I haven't been able to achieve that UNTIL I came to J. Dall Salon! My stylist, Norman, who is just amazing at everything he does, consulted with another stylist and the owner Justin on making sure I get the look I want. They all discussed what technique would be best to achieve that. I love that they worked as a team oppose to other salons I've been to, who don't consult with other stylist... Seeing that really made me feel not only my stylist but all the workers at J. Dall salon really enjoyed their job, each other, and just simply satisfying their customers! My hair was beyond perfect! It was better than the picture that i presented to them! Even color all around, no blotches, bright red with also dark red strands which I seriously never thought any salons were able to do... Norman gave me so much volume in my hair! I felt like a true rock star! They definitely know what they are doing!!! I 100% recommend this salon and definitely going back to see norman!

Super Weave Xpress
I will never go back neither one of their locations! I went got my hair for the first yesterday and I hated it. Don't get me they do have great customer . I was sent to sit in one of the new girls chair and didn't know wtf she was doing, keep stopping and going ask question people was coming over telling her she did this and that wrong plus I ended up getting a major headache from the braids and we had to stop. The girl didn't leave enough hair out to cover up my tracks and my part is too deep and that is not what I asked for. I was there from 1pm to 7 pm which I did not like, I was getting so frustrated with them that I said the hair was ok just so I leave because I've been there all day and neither of the stylist was doing exactly what I wanted. I really feel as if I wasted my 82 f*** dollars, the diamond package is bulls***, the first girl left a lump and talking about she couldnt fix it because of the package like for 82 d** dollars that should've been a style, flat iron and everything but I know now they will never get in my head again! They did let one of their better stylist re-sew my hair in and it looked better but I still have little leave out and I don't like that ! That was hair wasted and money wasted!!!

Hair Lovers Salon
I LOVE HAIR LOVER'S.....I have been going to this salon for 7 years. Amy does a fantastic on my hair. Helen and Monica do an awesome job as well. Helen has done my hair too on many occassions. I stumbled into this salon 7 years ago and would NEVER dream of going any other place. These ladies are special.....Never once have I ever had a bad experience with this shop. I go every week twice a week.....so that is alot of hair care in 7 years don't you think? Their prices are extremely reasonable and the service is excellent. If for some reason you may not be content with your result these ladies will definely make sure that your satisified and do whatever necessary. I can't imagine that anyone that goes there would feel any differently. I have NEVER witnessed any unsatisfied customers in all these years regardless if AMY, HELEN, or MONICA does their hair. I know they have a great clientel I am one of them! HELEN being the owner is one heck of a person. I don't know what I would do without this salon. GOSH....I would have to go back to overpriced salons and probably go through many many many stylists to find a gem that I have found in HAIR LOVERS!!! I LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!!

901 Salon & Boutique
I've gotten my haircut by this stylist for years now and I have never been disappointed. I remember at the previous salon (bf he went out on his own) he'd be the busiest one all the time amongst the many hair stylist there. He's super friendly, very knowledgeable about hair, and I am one of his many happy clients. I see the two negative reviews and those were left by people who've left all of one review in their entire time on yellow pages (and I'm wondering if it's the same person since they are talking about being scissor happy both times with both reviews being fairly close to time). How hard is it to tell the stylist that you do not want it cut past a certain point especially 1 inch vs 6 inch and emphasize that to them? It sucks that sometimes it only takes that one disgruntled customer who can't be pleased and is angry to leave unfair reviews of honest small businesses. Try it out for yourself and make up your own mind is the best suggestion I can give you if you are in the neighborhood for a new hair stylist. I did 5 years ago and I haven't needed to look for one since.

Nikki Salon
Hi everyone,I'm very skeptical about the Hair Loss Treatment service they offer because I tried a lot of hair grow product none of them works and the only option left I had was hair implant but its too expensive. They have a couple of customer that had a great success, they are friendly and professional, they explained how things work then lay down the treatment plan and most of all its estimate cost. It's at least more than 10 times cheaper that a surgery. Cost may vary depending on hair condition of course. They have a special device which they showed my hair photos of before and after my first treatment. I was shocked of the result. My hair pore finally opens from being closed for a couple of years. I was blown away now I feel the air blowing on my tiny bitty hair. My head feel so light. So if you are experiencing hair loss or baldness I recommend you try these service. Obviously, the product works. Give yourself a chance to look younger and feel confident again. For free consultation you can contact Cheri at (832) 814-3355 or Judy (713) 280-6809.Don G.

Cafe Brussels
Catherine’s latest venture, Café Brussels is a great new addition to the Heights. Try the Tartare de Saumon dressed with a zesty Belgian country vinaigrette accompanied by a Belgian draft beer or glass (bottle!) of wine. You can’t go wrong requesting Catherine’s favorite mussel dish for a main course, Belgian classic, Moules Marinières, accompanied by a large serving of golden Belgian Fries. The large and succulent mussels are steamed to perfection and portion sizes are very generous! My dining companion enjoyed le Petit Pavé de Bruxelles, a perfectly cooked steak and le Cordon Bleu. Be sure to leave room for one of Café Brussels fabulous desserts! Catherine's crepes are among my favorites.Catherine Duwaz is both a good friend and a genuinely nice person. It brings me great pleasure to see a friend continue to succeed in a town that can be unforgiving to restaurateurs. Cafe Brussels is our new "go-to" place in Houston for great Belgian food. And to top it all off, the prices are very reasonable for the quality and the portions sizes are generous.
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.

Just a moment...
