Rick the owner is the most professional contractor we have ever met. His presentation and knowledge makes you feel very comfortable. He gives you all.of his attention and is very patient. I have to admit we would call him at least twice a day. We were ordering materials we liked and it was a confusing process for me and my wife. Rick and his team were there for us every step of the way. They even used heavy duty floor paper and blue taped everything so our floors wouldn't be disturbed. He and his crew even cleaned up every nook and cranny when the remodeling was completed. Impeccable service from start to finish. Rick was right when he said I'm not your average contractor. If your serious I will be here in the am. He was from beginning to end. We did not have to wait for him to return a week or two later like some contractors. We have him on our speed dial! Thank you Rick to you and your crew. Thank you for that generous gift at the end. A nice gift card for me and my wife. If anyone needs a honest reliable contractor. Rick and his company are the way to go.
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.
