We are moving from VA to Pensacola and have been endlessly looking for homes for nearly a month. It's difficult when every property we found was already under contract to be leased. The one property we kept coming back to was never available for show because it was not cleaned yet. It was on the lower end of our price range and had the amount of bedrooms and bathrooms that we wanted includeding lots of storage from a shed and 2 car garage. The pictures on for the property looked great and it was a relatively new house. After calling and talking with the property manager, Rachael Kettler (she is the sweetest, patient, helpful, and very professional), she assured me of how easy the application process was and indicated that we can apply online and once approved can put a hold deposit on any of the available properties on their website. We applied and we were instantly approved same day. We took the plunge and inmediately put a deposit on the property site unseen. We checked the webite the next morning and the house was taken off. We spoke with Rachael who assured us that everything would be cleaned and move in ready for us. Rachael verified our move in date and will be emailing us the lease for electronic signature, we can pay first months rent online, and we'll also be able to move in over the weekend because our keys will be in a lockbox. This has never been any easier. After weeks of searching it took us only a day to secure our new home through and Rachael's amazing assistance. She took the stress and anxiety out of everything. We couldn't be more excited to finally have a home waiting for us in FL.

DelGallo Construction Group, LLC
Jonathan DelGallo and Britton Condon were extremely fast, efficient, and the quality of work they and their team provided was top notch. Extremely thorough and only perfection was their focus. I've never dealt with anyone so committed to making sure their client is consistently happy through a project this size. Plus my wife was very happy with the work accomplished and she is NOT an easy woman to impress! She has very high standards when it comes to our home and this company met every one of her standards and then some. Bravo!! We will be having these guys do a lot more work on the many properties we own. Thank you DelGallo Construction Group for the great work!

Affordable Home Improvement Specialist
I called around to see if I could get a patio enclosure done so my family and I could enjoy it during the warm months and to keep unwanted guests coming into the back area of my home. I found that Affordable Home Improvement Specialist were the guys for the job. They did a fantastic job on the patio and did it in a timely manner and it was under my price range. I would definitely recommend these guys for any work done.

Eddie is top of the game when doing a project, be it remodeling a bathroom or outside home repairs. Very meticulous! I would highly recommend Eddie. Prompt unless there is a family matter, which just shows how much he is a honest, good man. I love what he has done for us. He even helps in a pinch when my husband is away on work (fence falling down)

After talking with several agents, we decided to use My Home Spot as our agent and we're very pleased with his professionalism. We were able to sell our house quickly and for a good price. We would definitely use My Home Spot again if we needed a home in that area.

Eddie and his team did a beautiful job on my bathroom updste! Custom tile work was so gorgeous I couldn't believe it! I thought to have a bath like this would be out of my reach financially, but I was amazed at his low price. Love, love, love my new space!

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.
