"Excellent service. From initial sales experience to completion. They responded promptly when the storm screens broke down due to manufacturers defect. Their crews" both put up and take down our panels each year for a modest fee. Great company.

-Paul D.

"The first month or so everything was fine. The installer was very good. After about a month or so, the flooring started cupping (the edges were turning up). I went" back to the store and they said they couldn't do anything about it. I would have to go through their corporate office in Virginia. They wouldn't even come out and look. I had to fill out a form and take pictures of the floor. I sent all that to the corporate office in Virginia. They called me and said there was nothing wrong with the flooring and suggested I may have a leak somewhere. I informed her that there was no leak. They decided there was nothing wrong with the floor and there was nothing they could do. I talked to the installer. He came and looked, and took up the floors at his expense. He had 5 men at my house for 2 days taking up the bamboo flooring and the glue. I noticed when he took it up, the glue was still wet. The glue was supposed to be a water
, but it was not adequate. Then, I had to pay an additional $1300 to the couple who bought the house so they could replace the floor.

Opting for the least-expensive paint, gutters or other items may cost you more in the long run.

Angie's Answers

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!

No.  Heck no.  Here's a good example.  We very recently needed to find someone to install about 500 square feet of exotic wood flooring (we already have the materials).  We contacted about 12-15 top-rated Angieslist contractors.  Out of the few who did get back to us, we got 5 quotes, 2 of them were literally just over the phone.  They "didn't feel it would be necessary to even see the space". 


Here were the bids: 

$4000 (sight unseen), $2800 (sight unseen), $2500, $1500, $1450


We didn't "share our budget for this".  Why would we?  We asked them to bid the job.  That's it.  All of them should be well-qualified and they are all highly rated.  We were interested in how THEY value their time/resources - for an apples/apples job. 


Do you still think that you should tell them about your budget?  Your choice.  From my standpoint it isn't their business.  I'm asking them to bid on a project.  Invariably I'll get some very high bids, medium bids and a few more reasonable ones - ALL from "highly rated contractors". 

For this type of job, you need plans and specs from an Architectural/Engineering firm before thinking about contractors - and to get a building permit. Ben's method would work and done incrementally could cost well over $100,000 plus as he says, but this not really the most economic way to approach this big a job. A House Mover or Foundation Underpinning specialty company can usually slide your house onto a whole new foundation, or jack it up on steel beams and hold it there while a basement is dug underneath it, without any intermediate piers. The jacking/move cost would probably be on the order of $30-40,000, and a new basement probably about $40-50,000 - rough ballpark, though I have been involved in some 1000-1500SF single story jobs that went for under $70,000 total. I have been involved in a fair number of these type jobs - and the way the numbers come out, if there is room on the property to move the house, it is almost always nearly as cheap or cheaper to build an equivalent square footage (basement plus ground level) addition rather than add a basement under the house, and that way your new footage is half above ground so worth more on resale, plus you do not lose use of the house for a month or two. Second cheapest is usually sliding house to a new foundation, if property is large enough to do this - though house is totally cut off from utilities for a week to three. Most expensive, and usually only done in tight city environments or with full 2 story or higher houses, is adding the foundation in place, though your utility interruptions should be on the order of hours at a time rather than days or weeks. Talk to an architect - I think you will quickly lean towards the addition option rather than adding a basement - it is just too expensive to deepen foundations in most cases, plus you WILL get cracking in the house and possible water and sewer pipe problems in a move/underpinning job, which is not the case with an addition. This become more likely the case since you want to add 8 feet off the back of the home anyway - so why not just enlarge the addition and do it all that way - MUCH simpler, and MUCH less disruption of your life, and you get much higher resale return on your investment.

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.
The answer depends on your contract.  If you do not have a written contract, you need to begin documenting everything.  Begin by using a calendar and marking the days the contractor started, worked, you had to speak to him/her about the work, etc.

Next photograph the work you feel is sub-par.  If work has been corrected, photograph it now to have a record of its condition.  If you have any "original" or "before work began" pictures get those together, too.

If you do have written contract, see what it says about warranties, complaints, failure to finish / comply, etc.  Holding the money may end up with the contractor taking YOU to court for the funds - you cannot just hold the money.  You need to document in writing what is wrong, what you expect to happen (be specific) and when it should happen by.  A good contract will explain if and how money can be held, how the arbitration or complaint is filed, etc.

You should also invite another contractor to come in and bid the work to finish the job.  They can confirm the quality of the work and give you a price to fix / finish the job.  This gives you justification for holding the funds and an option to finish the job.

If the contractor is not willing to fix the work or listen to direction, do not allow them back in the house.  A judge will ask you why you let them continue to do work if you found it unacceptable.  Take back the key or access to the building - you can also attempt holding any materials or tools as collateral if the cost of repair is higher than the amount owed.  Again, document what you are holding, its estimated value (google or ebay search), etc.

Finally, in writing you should fire the contractor and state the exact reason(s).  Document everything; if it is done in person after they leave make notes of what was said, agreed upon and disputed.  If you are satisfied that what you have paid is fair compensation for the work done, make sure this is noted in the letter firing the contractor.  If you feel money is owed, you will need to file a small claim in your local court.  Include the documentation you made, notes, letters, etc. when you file your claim so the judge will have a copy of everything.  Don't forget to contact the BBB.

Do not wait for the court date; go ahead and hire the other contractor and have the work completed.  Bring this invoice to court with you (file it before the court date if you can).  Bring photos of the finished work (again, file it with the court before the date if possible).  You must show what good quality work looks like vs the poor quality work.

Otherwise it will be a your word against the contractor and you will most likely lose, (the contract is a promise to pay for work) or even if you "win" you will most likely split the difference between the argued amount of money.  Also be prepared for the contractor to file a small court claim against you.  Same process as above, except now you will respond to the summons with a copy of your stuff to defend your reason for holding funds instead of asking for money back.

Good luck!

From the time

Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
arrived at my house to discuss my project with me until they left my house this past Friday after installing my new plantation shutters throughout the house, I had nothing but the highest quality of experience. They are consummate professionals. Of the three companies from which I invited into my home to provide me quotes, I knew the moment that they began discussing their projects, their products, and service that they were the company I wanted to take on this project. The installed shutters are beautiful and change the whole interior and exterior appearance of my home.
I highly recommend

The materials took longer to arrive than expected. When we went to pick them up at the store, they forgot to give us everything and we had to go back to pick up additional pieces. While most of the floor looks great, one corner was peeling up just one day later. When I called and emailed to complain, my voicemail messages and emails were never returned.

After four hours of sales talk, we were so worn down on the following Sunday night. that exhausted and needing to go to bed, feeling under pressure , we made a snap decision to sign the contract for the work to be done immediately. This included application for the incentive of "interest free"

credit card. Charges and payments on the card arrived and began before the work even began. Another man came right away to take measurements for replacement doors. Minor blips included three sets of cabinet doors that don't fit. This was blamed on the door manufacturers and not on local employees. We are still awaiting these three sets of doors and a pair of drawers remain to be installed. A super great installer named

's expertise in installation of crown molding allowed him to reclaim the space critical for the standard 18" below the cabinet. I had called supervisor Mr.

tried to tell me that many cabinets were installed that way and they never have to move them up. He said, "Others don't have a problem with them." I assured him that the mistake should be corrected prior to installing the crown molding so Mr.

finally spoke to

and allowed him to move the cabinets up even though that detail was not on the contract. I told Mr.

that we were really not prepared for all the details that should have been included in a kitchen remodeling contract. We expected a professional assessment from
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
of the suitability of our kitchen for a refacing job. Little did we realize the only priority was our signature on a contract.
We had simply been on a leisurely Saturday stroll through our nearby Boerne
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
when we noticed a table display on refacing, on a whim we signed up to get an estimate of what the approximate cost would be for refacing. We had not made numerous decisions about the kitchen remodel, consequently during the quick process of signing a contract important decisions about critical items were neglected. One of those steps included a
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
CABINET REFACING! We were suddenly "under contract" from sleepily agreeing after a four hour sales talk.
My chief complaint, despite the exorbitant charges is about the sales technique similar to ones used in car sales in the past where trust is established and a series of "discounts" convinced us that we were getting an especially "good deal". After installation, we attempted to check the smoothness of the self closing mechanism used for the soft close drawers. Without handles it was impossible to open the drawers!
We were not offered the option of a more decorative drawer and consequently the drawers are exceedingly plain and disappointing. After the handles were installed on the kitchen we tried to open the drawers and were alarmed that they seemed to be stuck instead of smoothly rolling out!
I received a survey call from
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
asking about my satisfaction with my refacing. I expressed my extreme disappointment with the quality of the cheap drawer glides. A Mr.
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
came out immediately and showed me that plastic runners used a spring loaded cartridge that must be "disengaged" in order to open the drawer. This makes a tug necessary to open each and every new and empty drawer in my kitchen! Mr.
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
Drum is apparently in charge of regional customer service. Granted he came out immediately to check my kitchen, but his response was that the glides were functioning correctly. The fact that every drawer seemed to be stuck closed was irrelevant! No amount of pleading will change his stance that the drawers were built to specifications for that particular brand of hardware and if I had anyone attempt to replace or repair the drawers it would void my
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
warranty! What good is a warranty for $25,000 in kitchen refacing if the end product includes cheap glides that leave us with a kitchen full of STUCK DRAWERS!!? Mr.
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
said simply, "They work perfectly!"
I am feel extremely frustrated and told Mr.
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
. "We were absolutely sold a pig in a poke." I trusted the power of the
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
to deliver quality work. The problem seems to go to the nationwide buyer and supplier of these drawer glides. Mr.
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
said,"That is all I have." primary set of drawers under my 36" cooktop was also, "not in the contract" since the salesman said they could not put two drawers in a 36" cabinet. Mr.
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
offered to build a set of drawers but to order drawer fronts alone would $682,13. We already wasted the money spent on the 36" cabinet above the cooktop since we decided to go with a bigger range hood. I am so disappointed that we allowed ourselves to be victimized by the lure of advertising. The
Slidell Hardware Stores Provider Name Locked
trap of giving consent to a contract without our taking time to carefully plan the remodel. The person sent to our home though polite and friendly was not a kitchen design specialist. He was a salesman who works on commission I imagine. Everyone gets a slice of the pie and we are left holding the bag with a kitchen full of drawers that require effort to pull open. I HATE them! I would much rather have plain old drawer slides! HELP Promises of customer satisfaction is a joke!

Dealing with this company was the worst experience my family has gone through. The job had been committed to be completed in 6 months. From start to our occupying home the job took 14 months. We hired a home inspector who found over 30 items that needed to be addressed. The inspector had been in business for 25 years. He said our home was the worst new home construction job he'd ever seen. During the construction process we constantly had to leverage the services of our attorney in order to ensure that the terms of the contract were fulfilled. The management of this firm was often misleading with us in terms of setting expectations as well as making commitments that were constantly not met. Our dealings with them resulted in our pursuing litigation against them. During this process they constantly made dishonest statements that were proven erroneous via emails and other documents. No one should ever consider doing business with this company!!!!!
