Jaysen was phenomena! We have never had a better contractor. He was always punctual, very reasonably priced, professional and such a great communicator, which was so important to us since we were doing most of the project remotely. From start to finish he saw our vision, he knew how to orchestrate every step of the way and he did it all in a very timely manner. Our project was remolding a kitchen and 4 bathrooms of a 5,000 sq. ft. house, so it was definitely a big project and also a complicated one due to the original poor construction of the house. A lot of issues came up as flooring was removed and we got to the bones of the house, but through every problem that came up Jaysen always had a solution that was cost effective and keep us on track for our project end date. He made the situation so much more pleasant by bringing humor and positive perspective to every obstacle. We would work with him again in a heartbeat. We can't say thank you enough! Tara and Trish

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.
