"After the storm in
we had several companies come knocking on our door offering to give free inspections for roof damage.
" was the fourth company we had take a look at the house. We were impressed with
Walk right away when he inspected not only the roof, siding, windows and deck for damage, but he also walked to the back of our property where we have a large wooden play set that he also inspected for damage! None of the other companies were that thorough. The other companies told us after looking at our roof that we "definately have heavy hail damage" and that we would definately get a new roof. When
did his first inspection he told us there was minor damage and that it would probably not be enough to justify a new roof. He was very straightforward about everything and did not hype things up to get our business. We were sold! We had the insurance company adjuster come out and
followed the inspector and answered questions and showed him where the damage was. At first the inspector didn't see enough damage on the gutters until
showed him where he had seen it and the inspector agreed that the house needed to have the gutters replaced. The inspector also decided that the roof had minimal damage and was still in very good shape, just as
had told us.
showed him where the damage to the siding had occur and they took a sample to try and find a match. Turns out it was discontinued and we got to pick out a new color and style for the house. Installation of everything went very smoothly and everyone that came to the house to work on it was extremely professional friendly l and very efficient! It took a little over a week to complete the job and when they left you couldn't even tell that they had been there. The dumpster was gone and all the old siding, gutters and trash had been removed without a single thing left behind - or one piece of trash on the ground! During the entire project from the first point of contact after the storm until the last electrical plate was reattached after the project was done,
was ALWAYS there to answer questions and make sure the work was being done properly. Whenever we had a question (which was often!) or needed something
was incredibly quick to respond back to us, although he usually answered his phone every time we called him. Every detail and every concern of ours was addressed almost immediately! We are so incredibly excited how the house turned out and how thorough and professional everything was handled. Needless to say we are beyond happy with our experience with

first gutted our entire kitchen. We have a 100 yr old house, so it was a big job just for the first stage. We have a new ceiling, new" floor, and a new wall where the new cupboards were installed. Everything that was contracted and more was completed in a perfect and timely manner. The workers were pleasant, and did beautiful work. I love my new kitchen and would not hesitate to employee
and his crew again!

Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!
?
There are two sides to this and everyone will have an opinion.  I can tell you that from a contractor's point of view a customer that is up front with me is much easier to work with and the entire experience is much more pleasurable to all parties involved.  If you treat your contractor like there's always something to hide from him expect the same in return.  A good contractor is going to take your budget into consideration and make recommendations based on that budget.  When possible, he's going to estimate the work 10-20% under your target to leave room for the unexpected.  With any remodeling work, there's always the possibility and likelihood that there will be surprises that will have to be added such as mold damage, improper existing framing, etc.  The cushion allows room for the project cost to grow without going over your budget.  If no problems are found and you decide to spend that money some of the final finishes can be upgraded or other projects added.

Another good arguement for disclosing your budget to your contractor is to save you both some time and aggrevation.  You may have a $10,000 budget and want $30,000 worth of work.  Wouldn't you like to know your desires aren't possible before you get your hopes up or spend money on design fees for plans you can't afford?  Likewise, the contractor doesn't want to put in the hours of calculating the estimate only to find out it was all for nothing or that he has to refigure for a much lower cost after pricing what you specified.

Be fair and honest with your contractor if you expect the same respect in return.  You'll get a lot more out of it with the right contractor.

Herlonginc's answer stated that it is not the contractor's job to pay for materials and labor to do the job. I say baloney - a reputable, established contractor has the funds (or a business operations line of credit) to "carry" the job between interim or partial payments, each of which should be keyed to completion of distinct easily measured mileposts in the job, and for a homeowner I would say should be in not more than 20% increments for jobs exceeding a week or so. For shorter jobs, then an initial payment, 50% completion, and completion would be normal. His cost of carry funds is part of his cost of doing business, and is figured as part of his overhead.Bear in mind when he is buying materials and paying labor, his materials he typically pays for on a 10-30 day invoice, and his labor typically a week or two after they work, so he is not really "fronting" that much money if you are giving him weekly or biweekly interim payments, on a typical residential job.

If he does not have the funds to buy materials (excepting possibly deposit on special-order or luxury items, which still typically are 10-30 day invoiceable to him) and hire personnel then he is a fly-by-night operation, and he should not be bidding that size job. You should never (other than MAYBE an earnest deposit of not more than the LESSER of 10% or $5000) let the payments get ahead of the approved/inspected work progress - typically payment should be 10-20% BEHIND the progress, with at least 10% retained at the effective end of work until final inspections and completion of the final "punchlist".

That promotes rapid continuation of the work, discourages the all-too common nightmare of contractors taking on more work than they can handle so they leave your job for weeks or months to go work on someone else's job (frequently to start that someone else's new job so he can get the job), and does not leave you out a tremendous amount of cash if he does not finish and you have to hire another contractor to finish the job. Remember, if you have to hire a new contractor to finish the job, he will charge you a lot more than the original bid to finish someone else's unfinished mess.

This may seem cynical, but having started in the construction business about 50 years ago and seeing the shenanigans that a lot of contractors pull you cannot be too safe. You have to remember contractors are like any other people - I would say maybe 10% are outright crooks, another 25% or so will pull a fast one or overcharge if the opportunity presents itself, maybe 30% will do the work but not any better than they are forced to, about 25% are good conscientious reputable workmen, and the last 10% or so are really spectacular - conscientious, fair, and efficient craftsmen. This top 35% are the only ones you should have bidding in the first place. Therefore, only get bids from long-term reputable firms (so you shake out the marginal short-timers with less experience and also generally less ability to finish the job on budget and schedule), only those that have good RECENT references, and preferably with excellent word-of-mouth recommendation from people you know and trust. That way, you are starting right off with the cream of the crop, so hopefully whichever one bids low should be a good choice.

NEVER start with bids, then check the references of the low bidder - why even consider a vendor or contractor who you do not have faith in from the start ? Get references and short-list you possibles BEFORE you ask for bids.

Low bids - that is another matter - commonly the low bidder is NOT who you want, especially if he is significantly lower than several others, which might mean he is desperate for work, made a math error, or did not correctly figure the entire scope of work. You want a reasonable bid with someone you connect with and trust - that is worth a lot more in the success of the job than the absolute lowest bid.

You should always get a set of print and pull a permit when remodeling you home. It is a good thing that you want to be involved in your project. I do have some reservation about the electrical work. There is a lot at risk with doing the work yourself. If the house burns down you will never get the insurance money, unless your a certified electrician. Now of days 90% of home fires are blamed on electrical problems because the insurance company is to lazy and cheap to investigate the true problem. Also find out if the city you live in will allow you to perform the work. Make sure you coordinate your subs to have the proper time and space to perform their job. You don't want people working on top of each other. If you order all you materials make sure everything is there before you start your project. Have your subs check for proper and full items to be installed. Make sure every sub has a working set of prints. Make sure you have all the demo done before your subs show up to work. Schedule your plumber first, do any final framing or electrical work while you wait for inspection. Electrical inspection next followed by framing, insulation, and wallboard. All subs must get a final inspection on the job before you (the GC) can call in your final inspection.

Positive experience from beginning to end. The owner,

Bossier City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and the crew were very skilled and friendly. Here are some other notes:
The plans for the proposed work was a three dimensional picture that made it much easier to see what the end product would look like. The software was very high-end.
The invoice for the work was extremely thorough and easy to read. Everything was accounted for so we knew exactly where we stood if we wanted to change or eliminate something. Any changes were reflected in a new invoice and sent to us immediately. We have not had this experience before, but it certainly
Bossier City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to trust and a sense that everything was transparent. Cost was very fair for the work we wanted to have done.
Quality of the work was OUTSTANDING! We had a heated floor installed, a new ceiling, an expansion of the closet, a larger and tiled shower put in, new cabinetry, and a gorgeous granite counter top.
Bossier City Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
came with me to select shower tile, floor tile, and granite that would complement each other and the places we went to did quality work. The crew placed the tile and really had a sense of what would look great and it sure did! When I had thoughts or suggestions, they quickly accommodated and were so easy to work with, even when it meant replacing a piece of tile.
The crew was courteous and hard-working. They did a nice job putting up a tarp to keep the dust at a minimum (although there was still dust that needed to be cleaned up). They cleaned up after themselves each day and communicated well about what they were doing and what would be coming up in the next day or two.
The work took a bit longer to complete than we were hoping for, but it was usually due to outside circumstances.

Do NOT engage with this company. The job was originally promised to be done within 6-8 weeks. After 7 months of delay upon delay, and very poor workmanship, I was forced to hire a second company to finish the job. This was very difficult because the original work was so poorly done that other contractors didn't want to get involved. I made the mistake of paying too much of the fee up front, and I finally had to pay another contractor $3,300 to complete the job just to make it weather tight. It is still not cosmetically completed.

(owner) admitted that he owes me a refund of at least $2k but asked for time to pay it back. After 2 months of waiting for the refund now he will not respond to texts/emails.

Although we experienced a few problems with communications with our sales person, the overall job was great. The work crew was very professional, conscience, personable, and hard working. They arrived when expected, responded to questions and concerns and always left things picked up at days end. When adjustments were necessary they clearly explained the situation and offered suggestions. When we experienced a problem and brought it to the attention of the company the owner responded quickly and offered a resolution. We would definitely use them again.

Completely remodeled our shower, did a great job. They went above their call of duty, i.e.., they fixed our door locks which was installed incorrectly, and they fixed our door to the garage, which wasn't closing properly. They were timely, always arrived at the time they had indicated and they were very professional. I would highly recommend
