"We had an emergency when we had a leak in our roof. Since he couldn't come out himself at the time, he was able to recommend someone else who he trusted to help us get the snow" and ice off the roof. Then
was there as soon as the weather cooperated to help with an emergency fix in the middle of the winter. He then came out later in the spring and was extremely conscientious in making sure the leak had been taken care of, and insisted on not being paid until the job was completely finished. The repaired and painted sheet rock was blended perfectly with the old. He has done other work for us as well. He does beautiful remodeling work, very high quality with lots of attention to detail, and we trust him and his recommendations.

"He is a very nice guy, but he just tells you what you want to hear. The original quote was $25,000 and we paid him $10,000 up front for supplies and good faith. The plan was to totally" remodel our basement, with two bedrooms, a sitting area, a full bathroom, and an egress window. He lately has not been responding to phone calls, and he often misses appointments. He was supposed to have the work done by Thanksgiving. It is now after Christmas and it is nowhere near completed. He was supposed to be here all day Monday and Tuesday, then was supposed to come today. He came for 5 hours on Tuesday, but I have not heard from him today and he no-showed on Monday. I have called him three times today with no answer. He makes every excuse he can come up with as to why the work has not been completed. We asked him for a contract, a blueprint, a completion date, but nothing ever happens. He is very agreeable, but does not follow through with his promises.

Any time there was a question, we could text or email him and he was quick to respond or let us know when he would be available to talk. When a couple of items came up that we wanted to add where their would be extra costs, he was always fair with his pricing. Most of it was already detailed in the book of options and pricing he leaves with you at the first meeting. The work crews were all skilled in their respective trades, extremely polite and they cleaned up everyday before they left. They also laid tarps down in carpeted and tiled areas they needed to

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.

with status updates. Never had to track him down, as I had to do with other unprofessional contractors in the past. When we first met with him, we discussed several ideas with him and he helped us decide what we could do with our budget to make our house look new, but yet homogenous with the style of our home. Initially we wanted to take down a couple of walls in the kitchen to make it look bigger - but he suggested to widen the doorways instead so we do not

is a straight-talker and that's the kind of guy I needed for our job. He did his best to keep us on schedule during demo and renovations. He was definitely a force to be reckoned with when it came to managing his subcontractors - he stayed on top of them and managed them well so we always knew who was coming, when they were coming - no surprises. We weren't so concerned about getting the job done expeditiously, as we were about getting it done thoroughly and meticulously.

is a perfectionist, and when he was hanging 14 of our new interior doors, he made sure each one was level, balanced, flush with the adjacent wall so as to not slam shut on its own. We told him that we have a 19 month old toddler and he took great precaution to ensure that the heavy doors did not self close so our son's little fingers would not get caught in between. From our past experience, these characteristics of

The service went very well. The staff and crews were all very professional and accommodating. They allowed up to make changes along the way. They worked with our schedule very nicely. They are very trustworthy and great at cleaning up after each project we had them do. They were very responsive through email and sent us pictures as needed. They gave appropriate time lines as far as getting back with details on the job. I had no problem at all scheduling the projects with them.
