Harvey Construction Inc.
I am a local Realtor and have found Jim at Harvey's to be extremely professional and courteous.. Jim is a "No Drama" guy. He just tells it like it is, doesn't try to coat anything, but puts the issues into perspective very well.Not sure the circumstances on the other reviewer, but I use Harvey's and Jim exclusively. Debra in the front office is always cheerful and pleasant and very accommodating.

West Coast Floor Company
Very good at their craft. Have used them on a few projects over the years involving hardwood and they amaze me every time especially when I think something is impossible to do ie color matching etc. They do their best to make me happy even when they have to work against time and existing aging flooring.

Eagle Construction
We were very satisfied with Eagle Construction. Starting with new roof & then a new redwood fence, painting the house, removing sliding doors & installing egress window. Mark & his crew did a very good job. We would high recommend them. Prices and work was good.Howard & Dee
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.
