Diamond Edge Construction Inc
George and his team at Diamond Edge did amazing work at my condo. We had faulty work done by our original contractors that caused a leak from our shower into our downstairs neighbor's unit. We had so much trouble determining the source of the problem. We had two plumbers and the original contractor come in to inspect the bathroom, but none of them did much except charge us a ton of money to give us guesses of what might be the root of the problem. Thankfully, a friend referred George to me. He was able to quickly find the issue and he was able to fix it in a short period of time. The quality of the work was excellent. He was very easy to work with and very reliable. I would recommend Diamond Edge Construction to anyone. I also plan to use George and his team to fix my leaky roof.

I had a few smaller jobs: a hole that needed patching in the ceiling and I needed a new door. I found the carpenters to be efficient and very thorough! They arrived on time and stayed until everything was perfect! I would certainly call them again!

Quick and reliable! Thanks to George at Diamond Edge Construction for the top quality work, great crew and professionalism. My salon was damaged when a car drove through the business next door and came through my wall and station. I called George and he came down the next day to access the damage. Thanks to him and his crew he had my salon up and running as quick as possible. My clients love the new look and no one would ever know that a car had come through a few weeks before! I would highly recommend Diamond Edge and will definately be using them for my future home projects as well!
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.
