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.

I WAS LOOKING FOR A PAIR OF BLACK SHOES FOR WORK, WHICH YOUR STORE HAD A HUGE SELECTION. BECAUSE OF THE BOGO THE STORE OFFERED I DECIDED TO LOOK FOR A SECOND PAIR OF SHOES AS WELL. HOWEVER I FELT REALLY UNCOMFORTABLE, BECAUSE SECURITY FOLLOWED ME ALL OVER THE STORE. WHEN I ENTERED THE STORE HE WAS IN THE CORNER ON HIS PHONE. BUT IT SEEMED THAT AFTER HE NOTICED ME, HE SUDDENLY HAD THE URGE TO WALK ALL OVER THE STORE, BUT ONLY IN THE AREAS WHERE I WAS TRYING ON SHOES. NOT TO MAKE THIS A BLACK THING, BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK AS WELL. BUT BEING THE ONLY BLACK CUSTOMER IN THE STORE AT THE TIME AND HIM ALWAYS IN MY VICINITY, I FELT A LITTLE OFFENDED. I'M SURE HE WAS JUST DOING HIS JOB. BUT I WONDER WHY HE WAS'NT FOLLOWING THE OTHER CUSTOMERS IN THE STORE. I BOUGHT THE SHOES THAT I WANTED, BUT I WILL NEVER RETURN TO THIS STORE AGAIN.,

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

Not that there's anything wrong with it, just that we're middle class. I went in the Galleria for the first time in August 2007, when I first moved here and I heard raves about it from work. Unfortunately for me, when I walked in I was quite embarassed. I felt like I didn't belong and the sales personnel gave us dirty looks and wouldn't help us. Granted there's so much to do, and the apartments there are $5 Mill each, it's just not meant for anyone less than upper class. The worse thing of all, are the rich snobby teenagers with their roaring voices, they're so loud and abundant that it's hard to carry on a conversation. Other than that, it's gorgeous and you can walk for 4 hours at least and still not be done with the mall.

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.

I think they only like to serve people who look like they are going to buy lots of merchandise. They tend to ask you to many questions when you try to get help from them. It's almost as if they are trying to weed you out and get you to go home. I find that most Sephora stores are like this, the staff thinks they are too great to help you. But I like playing with make up, and having a store that has make up and fragrance all in one spot. So I continue to go. Oh well.

I highly recommend SB Lonestar Construction for any interior or exterior repair or renovation. I have used several contractors in the property in the past four years and I can honestly say that I am very pleased with their work. Not only are they professional, but the employees they have are very nice and respectful. The quality of the work is an A+. They have done roof repairs, sub-floor, fence, paint, sheetrock repair and concrete.

John will always work with you to get the project done the way YOU want it done. They can do your project from the ground up or just a small remodel if you prefer. You pick the schedule and they work around it. They have done projects that take only a day hanging a door to more complicated projects that require the cooperation of the Architect, General Contractor, Several Sub-Contractors and Suppliers lasting over several months.

Shoe Expo Inc
The store is really great. They sell inexpensive shoes that range from 10.99 to 13.99. I have been in the store and seen other customers that literally want department quality shoes for 10.99. The quality of the shoes is actually good. The employees working there are helpful when you need help but the store is self-service so I did not expect to be treated any differently.
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.
