"Very well...courteous, professional, price good, clean up all above expectations...definitely recommend...

"Removed non-masonry chimney which was no longer being used. Repaired the resulting hole in roof. Work was done quickly and professionally. Shingles on roof repair" matched perfectly as did the flashing between the roof on the addition (where the chimney was located) and the main structure. Debris was removed and everything was cleaned up. The entire job was done within a day. Several people worked on the project at various times and all were courteous and professional. Would not hesitate to recommend
to any of my family or friends.

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". 

?

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.

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.

The reason I like working with Advanced is because they listen to your needs, concerns, budget, and dreams and they try their best to make that happen. With other contractors I have worked with in the past, they totally disregarded my concerns, and looked to squeeze every last penny out of me.
Advanced is an honest firm. Their sole motive is to make sure their clients get a well-built project and are satisfied with the results. They are honest and transparent; they won't lead your through a

Builders to remodel our master bathroom. We were under an extreme time
crunch cause my wife was 7 months pregnant and we just moved into our
new house. These guys at

pushed their schedule around
in order to accommodate our unusual circumstance. They finished the
remodel in less than 2 months and sure did a spectacular job. it is not
an easy thing these days finding the right contractor for the job. I
feel really good about picking them our of 4 different bids i received.
2 of them were actual angies list contractors, including MHB. The
bathroom now looks like we live in a 5 star hotel. My wife and I cannot
speak highly enough about yaron and his crew. The 1 thing that really
sticks out about these guys @

discussed all the jobs on my to do list before the appointment date so his crew could show up prepared with any necessary items. They arrived on time both days and finished each job carefully and to my complete satisfaction.

Nick of ABC has amazing vision and insight for home remodels. We gave him pretty rough ideas, and he was able to perfect our project and scope of work. In the initial consultation he was extremely kind, knowledgable, and spent 2 hours with us answering every last question we had. We got a wealth of information from him during that meeting and we felt extremely informed. Everyone else we met with could not even compare to the expereince we had with Nick.
The ABC crew is extrememly professional and they have great qualtiy and use the best matierials. They did not cut corners and still delivered on time.
I highly recommend ABC. They are a well rounded company that will optimize your project.

If you want a high-quality job, call
Memphis Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
! They did an absolutely outstanding job renovating the basement of my 1923 house and turning it into a money-making apartment. Most of the other contractors looked overwhelmed at the prospect of such a large job (they had to install a bathroom and kitchen from scratch, upgrade a mess of poor electrical work, and fortify the structure), but not Prime! Their project manager was actually excited about the job and came full of ideas that ultimately increased the value of the space tremendously. The lead carpenter was truly a genius in the way he problem-solved the inevitable problems of such an old house, and found beautiful and functional solutions. Even other professionals who worked in the space (countertop installer, glass door installer) dropped their jaws when they saw the space and remarked at what an quality job the guys did. Visitors said that it looked like the "after" from HGTV's hit show Income Property. It is that nice. I wish I could live down there! I rented the space within a week and had multiple inquiries.
