4 J Builders
These guys are by far, way above the rest of the pack. I have dealt with many contractors and for the most part they are just mediocre at best, but Eric and his crew know how to get things done. Eric is licensed and insured (verified) gives the lowest bid, gets the project done within the timeframe promised (earlier most of the time). He is very professional, hardworking, and leaves his project clean and ready to use. I have had 4J Builders do multiple projects from a small one-day project, to constructing a 40'x35' shop. I would not be surprised if they ended up doing every project in town. Awesome crew! Awesome job! Just Awesome! Michelle K.

Big Horn Development & Home Builder Inc
A great company to work with. We gave them a house plan drawn up on note paper and they turned it into a very nice house. No problems, easy to work with, quality work and overall nice people. We worked with another local builder last year and Bighorn was far superior in every way. We will work with them again and I would highly recommend them to anyone.Dan and Lana WalkerWhitefish
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.
