I called Bill with a last minute urgent request and he made time to come over and do the job. He is courteous, efficient and the price was fair. I recommend him to everyone!

Pillsbury Property Maintenance
After leaving a few businesses voicemails and receiving NO call backs, the owner himself returned my call and came out to give me an estimate himself the very next morning. Very professional, cool looking wrapped fleet vehicle with a "monster" on it my kid loved. Did a serious cleaning job on my roof.. he recommended a "soft wash" instead of pressure washing - and im amazed my roof looks like new! glad to find a legitimately licensed, insured, decent local business that will actually do what they advertise. Recommended to several neighbors for handyman service too

Gouge Construction
The very best aluminum company I have ever dealt with. I Highly recommend Bob Gouge and His installers Greg & Daniel. They were all a pleasure to deal with and didn't ask for a deposit. I wouldn't do anything to my house without first calling Bob.
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.
