I do most of the work around my house myself but I purchased a very large and heavy 4x8" Pella bay window off of Craigslist and there was no way I was going to attempt to put it in myself. I hired Marty for the job. His kids go to my school and I know him personally. He is a hard working man and did a very good job putting this window in. He and his crew showed up, cut out the wall, re-framed and had the window framed in and secure in a few hours. He showed up the day and time he said he would. He is busy, so get in touch with him well in advance if possible just to make sure he can fit you in. Travis Feuerbacher

Nothing but good things to say. Means what he says. Runs a business like a business should be run. Lived here 18 months. Pay on time and take care of the place and there are NO problems. The previous rater is only giving their own side. I don't know what happened with them but my families experience has only been positive! I would absolutely recommend renting in horseshoe bend. (Would have given five stars if the yard was a little bigger and there was an outdoor storage shed.)

Slow at completing jobs. Used foul language in front of kids. I will never buy a house from Dustin or Mike Hawks or do any kind of business with them.
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.
