Best Bid Construction
Uriel did a fantastic job! We found him on Angie's list after scheduling with another contractor and having that contractor not show up! My husband called Uriel and he came out right away to give us an estimate. His estimate was the same as everyone else's so we decided to move the project over to Best Bid Construction. We were promptly emailed a typed bid explaining the bid and what exactly we were paying for. Uriel was very professional every step of the way and kept in constant contact letting us know about any schedule changes and really explained to us how the project was going to work. Although it was a small project (just a back patio) my husband and I were nervous to spend money on a back patio like this. It only took him a day to complete and it looks fantastic! He made it match our existing patio so the whole thing will be consistent. My husband and I were very pleased with his work and will definitely use him again for future projects!
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.
