This guy is a contractor....period. Everything in your home will be sub-contracted with lousy rock bottom quality material. Get a real builder or buy a manufactured home! You'll be better off!

Always On Top Metal Roofing
From the beginning it "felt right". Everyone says you should get at least 2 estimates...well, I had 3 scheduled. All within 5 days of each other, including Always on Top. The other 2 never showed up or even called regarding their absence and I wasn't even mad about it haha. My heart already decided within 20 minutes of Chris' "pitch". He has visual aids of paint colors and a really nice app that allows you to see a relatively accurate picture of the finished product on YOUR home. Chris came off as very genuine and honest person. Very educated on the product he is dealing with and has lots of experience in the industry.One more thing, the crew that worked on MY roof were very clean and respectful.Choose Always on Top. There is no other option when it comes to protecting your assets.

Alarcon Roofing
Professional and affordable. Great guy! I definitely recommend Alarcon Roofing and Metal services. I ordered 3 estimates when I replaced my roof and he not only was the most affordable one, the roof quality was much higher that the other two offers.

Harbor Roofing & Siding
Terrible experience with this company. Rude, dishonest, confrontational salesman. Took almost 2 months for them to get to me after I signed a contract and gave them a deposit. The salesman told me it would be 3-4 weeks. They only showed up when I called to complain after waiting 6 weeks. The work is still not done to my satisfaction. This is not about their crew - they were great. This is about the horrific way they do business. Look elsewhere.

Very disappointed. We accepted their price. Waited several weeks hearing nothing. Called them back, promised would do work, never showed or returned calls. Don't wast your time.

Equity Enhancers
Do not use! They have NO clue what they are doing! They lie and my property is having a lean put on it because I paid them and they didn't pay the workers who did the work or provided the materials! Be warned! Run away!!!

Stevens Fine Homes
So we ended up not building with Stevens, although we spent nearly a month engaged with them attempting to build in the Willowick subdivision. Problems include selling us gas appliances without telling us that the neighborhood does not have natural gas, taking a long time to get pricing information, and reneging on a price that we signed for on a form that THEY sent us, and being pushy to use their lender and lawyer. So we put down earnest money, then we had a good visit to the design studio, during which Linda helped us pick out roughly what we wanted. Ofcourse, prices were inflated for everything from lighting fixtures to faucets, not to mention flooring and appliances, but we were prepared for that, and were willing to pay so long as we could get what we wanted, and hopefully negotiate a small discount.Anyway, after our design center visit, we had asked Linda to price out a few custom things for us, including a different dishwasher, a half-wall shower in the master, adding crown molding to the living room, and adding laminate flooring to a hallway. We asked for this on March 9, and didn’t get the answer until March 20. Fair enough, we found some of the options to be more than we wanted to pay, we selected several, and asked her to move forward with what we had selected.She sent an addendum outlining what was in the house, and it indicated a propane gas fireplace. I was expecting natural gas (we had selected a $1000 gas stove). I e-mailed for clarification, and I was told that that neighborhood didn’t have natural gas. I called Piedmont Gas to verify, and indeed it does not. Had I not noticed the word propane in the addendum, we would have moved in and our stove wouldn’t have worked, nor our fireplace. Ofcourse we would have to have a propane tank buried in the yard, but they should have told us, or we would have been surprised after we closed.When all was said and done, we had a home priced at $303,610. We e-mailed asking for $300,000, citing the cost and trouble of having our own propane tank buried. They applied a 10 percent discount to our upgrades, bringing the price to $300,284. We found this amicable, and we signed the addendum that they sent us. We were instructed to scan and e-mail the addendum to them, which we did the same day. The next day, Patrick, a sales manager, e-mailed me informing me that they refuse to honor the discount, and claimed that it was mistakenly approved and shouldn’t have been sent. He refused to honor the discount on the form that they had sent us.I found this to be a very bad sign. If you can’t trust them, you shouldn’t build with them, they know more about house building than you do, and if they are willing to pull a cheap trick like this, then they have the ability to pull a fast one during construction. We ran for the hills.

Absolute Metal Roofs
"No Complaints, Just GREAT Reviews""We have long been admiring metal roofing on houses and public buildings that we pass in our travels. We have always heard that it was quite expensive. Our 19 year old house was soon going to be in need of new shingles. After learning of the durabilty and warranty time of the metal roofing we decided it would not hurt to get an estimate. We were surprised to find that there was not that much difference in the cost of shingles and metal roofing considering the warranty and life span. So glad we chose the metal roofing. It really added "pop" to our house and really dressed-up the look. The best part is we will not need to replace or do any maintance in our lifetime! Now instead of admiring other's metal roofing we are admiring ours!"The McLambs- Holly Springs, NC

Review by DW in Tobaccoville, NC Project: Metal Roof- Install or RepairAbsolute Metal Roofs did a great job installing our roof. Not only did they do exactly what they said they would do, they treated us like old friends and I hope they stop by when they are in the area again.

The Kitchen
My wife and I have eaten here a couple times and it is a great place to go for a great plate of food. Very nice wine list and great mixed drinks & beer. The food is great, goumet I will be so bold to say. I love a place that makes a great plate of food with a good atmosphere and beverages. This is that place.
Tips & Advices
A stove hood is not legally required in most residential building codes, but it's a good idea to get a clear picture of what the rules are in your neighborhood. Even if you're not legally required to install one, there are many good reasons for investing in a stove hood. They improve conditions in your kitchen by sucking up airborne grease and cooking odors, and are available in both ducted and ductless varieties.
Yes, hardwood floors can be used in a kitchen, and can add richness and warmth to its environment. Hardwood floors are durable and resilient, even with spills and stains. They are also easy to update via refinishing.
There are many different types of kitchen counter materials. Quartz is a popular choice, and is resistant to stains and scratching. Granite counters are beloved for their look, and can boost the value of your home. If you're price sensitive, laminate counters are a great choice. Other types of kitchen counter materials include wood, marble, stainless steel, glass, concrete, and soapstone.
The average kitchen remodel takes four to six weeks. Keep in mind that this doesn't include the time required for planning and design. The time required for the remodel will vary based on the size of the kitchen. Additionally, some remodels are more extensive than others, which also impacts the time required to complete the job.
The standard height of a kitchen counter is 36 inches when measured from the floor. Kitchen appliances, such as dishwashers and stoves, are built with this height in mind. However, different customers might have different requirements when it comes to choosing an ergonomic kitchen counter. For example, the ideal kitchen-counter height for someone who uses a wheelchair is roughly 31-34 inches.
