Color Works Construction
Color Works does a great job when they send the right crew. We contracted them to paint our living room and kitchen. The estimated time to complete the job was 2 days, however due to humid weather conditions, the paint had difficulty drying in the estimated time. On the third day, a different set of painters showed up to finish the job and unfortunately the quality of work did not match the level of skill that the initial crew displayed on the first 2 days. As a result, the initial crew had to come back and clean up after the sub-par crew, which took an additional 2 days of work. (I'd like to point out that the workmanship of the initial crew was phenomenal. Specifically George and Robin, they are good, trustworthy guys who work very hard to produce a great result.)Now, in all fairness, anyone who had already paid a decent amount of money for a job that took three times as long to complete as originally estimated would undoubtedly be frustrated. However, Color Works took responsibility for the mistakes made and lived up to their warranty. They offered to paint our hallway free of charge, which was in fact completed within a day, as well as patch any spots that we noticed in the living room and kitchen going forward. All in all, I would say that they do good work and are a solid choice but are in need of dedicated supervision. The supervisor is understanding and responsive, however if the quality between crews lacks consistency, the vision of the final product gets lost in translation. This could have been mitigated simply by having one person oversee the job from start to finish. My recommendation is twofold: 1. If you're contracting Color Works, be sure to be very specific about the full scope of the job so that you get an accurate time to completion.2. Ask that the crew remain the same between days so that everyone fully understands how the job is to be completed and what techniques are best utilized. (ex. sprayers vs rollers

Sivage Homes
OMG! OMG! You have no idea how refreshing it was to walk into a model home and not hear the word upgrade, upgrade, upgrade! So many standard features that we didn't have to upgrade. The best simply the best. Sivage was the first builder we went to that we felt like we got everything we wanted in our home. We built a home 10 years ago with Pulte and had so many problems. This time we found the perfect home. We built our home in Talise De Culebra and our sales person James was simply amazing! He genuinely cared about my families needs. As soon as we walked in he greeted my husband/kiddos and made us feel at home helping us find the right home plan. 1800 sq ft was getting a little cramped for my husband and 3 kids LOL! So we were looking for 2500 sq ft w/ 4bdr, 3bath master down or larger and under 250 K. James showed us all the custom changes we could make on our plan taking our home plan from 2600 sq ft to 2900 sq ft and givng us 4bdr master down, 3 1/2 bath and a mother-in law suite. A much more professional and enjoyable experience this time around! We are blessed to be in our DREAM HOME!

Sivage Homes
WE LOVE OUR NEW SIVAGE HOME!!! My wife and I looked at purchasing a home with several different builders in price range of 170's to 230's. After many months of searching we found Sivage homes. We chose Sivage because of all the included features (granite, tile flooring, blinds, etc.) and options they allowed on the home. They allowed us to make structrual changes to the home that other builders would not. Our sales person was great from begining to the end. There were some issues at their design gallery but all and all a pleasent experince. We have now been in our home for a year and have zero issues we love our home!!!

El Bucanero Embassy Row
Our first time going to Bucaneros and it was a wonderful experience. Let me start with Fabio our server he was so helpful with menu questions,so attentive and a complete gentlemen. So refreshing to find anywhere. What can I say about the food other than excellent. We have not had ceviche of this level since living in miami,so fresh,such flavor no question the best in SA. The batter on the fried shrimp was devine. We brought ceviche back to the rest of the family, rest assured you gained 5 new patrons probably more after sharing our experience with other friends and family.

Delta Properties
Wanted to see if my old property near San Antonio was worth anything. Found Heath on the internet at www.deltabuysproperties.com.So many scammers out there so I was glad to learn that Heath has years of real estate and business experience. Though some other issues precluded us finishing a deal, Heath and Delta were very helpful to me as I sought to find a solution to my cash flow and sell more quickly than via a real estate broker. I will recommend Delta Properties to anyone in Texas who wants to sell their unwanted home or other property without hassle and for cash.

Eddie Real GCS
We used Eddie Real GCS to remodel our house back in nov 07. We wanted new carpets upstairs, woodflooring in living, dining and entry, and tile in the kitchen,bathroom floors and shower stalls. They also did our countertops and painted the entire inside of the house. They did all this for less than other places where trying to charge without countertops or paint. Everyone was nice and always showed up when they were expected. It took a little over 2 weeks. And we are extremely HAPPY! I am glad they were reffered to us.

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.
