AVOID!!! We hired this company to build our new home. The company and its owner delayed our project and we are more than 6 months past our scheduled completion date through no fault of our own. The contractor did not pay the subcontractors hired to perform work. Some of the work it performed was not done properly. We had to terminate our contract at the end.

Silverio Construction Co Inc
I hired this contractor because of how exact and careful he was when he initially came out for the quote. He measured everything multiple times, took careful notes and had great ideas and suggestions to give towards our bathroom project. Although his quote came in the highest, we felt good moving forward. It took this contractor longer than expected to begin the project and the initial price given seemed to get higher and higher each day due to hidden costs. Not only did we feel taken with the price, but the original contractor of whom was our reason for choosing him, did not do one ounce of the work. Instead it was all his crew. Once finally completed with the job, no nail holes were filled, no painting or priming completed, and just about all of the walls were not square, leading to challenges with the tiling guy. I would NEVER use this contractor again and am disappointed with the overall quality of how our bathrooms came out.
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.
