As the time approached, we called to schedule the work. He came out to reconfirm and we gave him a $500 deposit. They arrived promptly on the day the work was scheduled to begin.
We were taking out cabinets and moving them from one room to the other, they were willing to work around us. They roughed in the plumbing for the sink, then over the weekend we removed the sink and base cabinet, moved them to the new location, and on Monday they came back and connected the sink and faucet.
Not every contractor is willing to work with homeowners the way they were.
We will call ”
I really don't have a problem with that, except
1) the owner should change his website to cross small jobs out when it states they do big and small jobs
The above needed to be changed, they only want to do BIG jobs.
The owner should simply inform callers that they do not do those types of projects. It saves everybody a lot of time and aggravation.
and 2) they should learn how to pick up the phone and tell the customer that they are not going to show up so that the customer does not wait all day at the house. When you don't call to tell me you are not coming you are basically stating that my time is worthless. At my job I fire contractors and vendors that pull that stunt on me and I do it in my personal life as well. When I tried to call during the day the answer machine picked up so that was no help either.
See, what the owner / GC and these guys / subs don't understand, is that I had other work that I needed estimated. I also was looking for estimates for having the house's siding replaced, as well as the wood trim around the house; I needed a significant drainage project performed; a kitchen demo'ed, the cabinets taken down, the walls patched and skimmed, as well as painted; and two bathrooms completely remodeled. In addition, I needed a patio cover replaced. If you add that all up, you are talking over $50,000 worth of work mostly to be paid for by insurance, which is a lock on payment for the most part when you complete the work. In the New Orleans
Before you do a bathroom remodel, a siding job, or a roof job for me, I want to see what your quality is. You start with a small job, and if I like your work and your people have a good attitude, can perform the work with a good quality, and the price is fair, then you get to the bigger projects. You think I am going to let a general contractor and his subs do a bathroom remodel if they can't even replace a ceiling fan and patch the ceiling? Why would I let you remodel the kitchen if you guys can't even do a
Again, I don't have a problem with that, I just want other people to know that if you call this guy, don't hang around waiting for him to show on your day off. Schedule some other general contractors to come so that you will have several estimates. Do what you need to do, and make him call you when he is on his way 15 minutes out so that you don't waste your time. Moreover, make sure you only call him for BIG jobs, because as the owner states, "they ONLY do BIG jobs."
We took the sketches to a local cabinet shop and contacted with them for the finished product.”
The contract included money to move the breaker box and wiring from the back of the house. With the installed new siding, the back of the house would be free of electrical wiring and equipment. So either
I was at home the day the patio cover was installed. The plan was for the posts to be cemented in the ground. However, the installers didn’t know this and had cut the posts for mounting on the patio. I noticed this and the installers revised their plans. They had to purchase additional materials. Again, there was no oversight by the
Finally, the electrician arrived to install the ceiling fans. Fan beams had been incorporated into the insulated patio cover for the electrical wiring associated with the ceiling fans. The electrician told me that the wiring for the ceiling fans could not be fished behind the siding. The patio cover extended too high for easy access. So, the electrician installed a gray metal conduit horizontally along the underside of the patio cover and vertically near the switch. Subsequently, I found out that the wiring could have been fished behind the siding, albeit at additional effort and cost.
I was very upset with the outcome of this installation. I had not paid the additional $1300 to move the breaker box and junction box from the back of the house to have these metal conduits “decorate” the house. I asked
There was no cleanup following the work.
