Evergreen Construction Company Inc
Frank PropertyJob: RoofingApproximate Cost: $11,000Description of Work: Due to storm damage, we needed a new roof. Evergreen Construction replaced our roof. Evergreen did an excellent job. Even my husband was pleased (which is not easy to do.) They came early in the morning and began to remove the old roof. The job was completed in one day. They did an excellent job of searching for and removing nails from the ground. (We have a dog, so this was very important to us.) The roof looks great. There was a small problem with the satellite dish being re-installed on the roof. Evergreen just said we should have Direct TV come out and fix the dish. Select Evergreen would pay for the service call. This Direct TV service call was deducted from our bill, just like they said they would. So it really wasn't a problem after all. I hope we do not need a new roof for a long time, but if we do, I would not hesitate to contact Evergreen Construction to do the job.

Strafelda PropertyJob: RoofApproximate Cost: $14,000Description of Work: Re-Roof House. I worked in construction for over 30 years and I am very pleased and impressed with the craftsmanship and dedication that Select Evergreen provided throughout my entire re-roof experience. The crew did exceptional work from start to finish. Joe did great work working with my insurance company to get me approved for a new roof. Joe and his staff also made the entire insurance process very simple and easy for me. I would and have recommended Select Evergreen to anyone looking for a new roof.

Select Evergreen is a great company to work with, They completed my roof project in one day (they say there is 40 square roof) They did not leave until it was complete and they cleaned up so very well. They protected my wife's garden and worked to ensure we were happy every step of the way. They worked on many homes on our block and everyone agrees they did a super job! Thank You Select Evergreen!
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.
