and Remodeling delivered a kitchen transformation that exceeded all of my expectations in so many ways.
Van Nuys" headed the design phase and really listened to my ideas and preferences. She was very patient as she helped me choose cabinets, appliances, paint, hardware, and tile. She understood that with our open floor plan the new components had to compliment several existing spaces, and the final result achieves that goal beautifully. I really appreciated having the computer generated renderings to get a better feel for how our ideas would look before construction started. I think that helped ensure that we were all on the same page before construction began. As we moved to construction,
, took the
of the project. We had a very tight timeline for the installation and he kept everything right on track. Each project will have a problem or two. When we had a couple of logistical issues pop up, he worked calmly and got them resolved very quickly, keeping me informed each step of the way. He was managing several projects simultaneously with mine, but I never felt like he didn’t have time for my questions or that my project was not as important as any of the others he was watching over.
Burns was here each day making sure that all of the little details required to keep things on track were addressed. He was extremely considerate at each step, always finding ways to accomplish the tasks required with minimal disruption or discomfort for me and my family (including my two beagles). We painted the lower cabinets, and he devised a temporary venting system to reduce the fumes in the house while it was drying. He also made sure that things were done right and to my satisfaction, no matter how many trips to Lowes or the paint store it took. Each person from
and Remodeling was professional and courteous while they were working in my home. In addition, each specialty contractor required for the job was outstanding.
delivered new custom cabinets that were exactly what I had envisioned and are made to last.
did an amazing job on our tile. It was so nice that each person wanted to make sure that I was completely happy and that I didn’t have to settle for “good enough”.

Sunrooms and patios

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.

The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars was I though the price was a little high and the permitting process a little long, but our huge new decorative alumawood patio is spectacular!







The process of working with them is really nice, everyone kept in touch with me on a weekly basis. I knew what was happening the entire time. As I mentioned above, the permit ok a while and they were not the cheapest company, but I wanted a customized

Over last winter, our 1970's style patio enclosure roof developed a leak in between a few of the seams, and we had water leaking in. In the spring, we made appointments with several companies to give us quotes on both replacing just the roof, and replacing the entire existing enclosure. When
Bennet Patio And Sunroom Builders Provider Name Locked
, from Better Living came out to take a look at the old patio enclosure and explain the options that his company has, he was able to answer all of our questions and provide suggestions. The most important factor from his visit was that I felt that I could trust him as he was the not only the owner of the Better Living
Bennet Patio And Sunroom Builders Provider Name Locked
branch, but as we came to find out, he also was on site at the job to lead the installation.
We eventually chose Better Living to replace the existing three season room with a four season room as it is located off of our family room and both our family and dogs like spending time out in the sunroom as much as possible. By going with the four season room, we figured that we can get some extended use of the room in the colder months.

helped in selecting the new layout of the doors and windows along with making the recommendation to raise the roofline about a foot, and add transom windows along the outside wall. This not only gave us a better sight line into the yard, but also gave us the ability to add a ceiling fan to the room, which has made a big difference in the summer months.
Overall, the entire process went pretty flawlessly.

and his assistant removed the old patio enclosure the first day, and began re-building the new one soon after. The total project took about 5 days. One thing that was impressive was that they generally care about the homeowner. From the cleanup of the job site, to the little things like ensuring any openings to the house have been sealed up at the end of the day, everything was very professional...they came to the house, did their work, cleaned up, and left. As another surprise that I wasn't expecting, and something we had never talked about...
Bennet Patio And Sunroom Builders Provider Name Locked
re-faced the wall where the room attached to the house with a vinyl siding product to finish off the room. This really did help complete the room as previously there had been aluminum siding there, but with the back wall finished, the entire room looks fresh and modern, and looks more like a room, than an add-on porch.
The final result has been great. We have enjoyed a lot of time this summer in the sun room, and have noticed a difference with the temperature in there having the new insulated glass and roof installed...it is comfortable even on the
Bennet Patio And Sunroom Builders Provider Name Locked
days during the summer. The doors and windows all operate quietly and provide a good seal, something that our previous sunroom lacked. Overall, I'd highly recommend Better Living

We moved into a 12 year old home and gave a list of several issues to
Bennet Patio And Sunroom Builders Provider Name Locked
that we wanted fixed (e.g. fixing outlets that did not work, repair doorbell, replace circuit breaker that kept tripping) and also several new jobs (move light fixures, install new light fixtures, put front porch on timer).
They did all of the above perfectly with one exception. We wanted one additional recessed ceiling light in our living room. They installed it fine but used a white metal backplate whereas all the other recessed ceiling lights in the living room and rest of the house use black metal backplates. It stands out as odd. The installer told use we could go to Lowe's and buy the correct one and switch it out easily ourselves. I thought to myself, isn't this what I'm paying you guys to do? Seems like they should have taken care to get that right or offered to fix it. Other than that, they were really great and I will continue to use them.
