"It has been a few months since
and his "Happy Man" contracting finished my kitchen...I call him Happy Man contracting because nothing" was difficult or problematic. He was always there with a smile and a can do attitude. The people he brought in to do the work were the same...I could tell they liked working for
and they liked their work. My neighbors recommended him (thanks
) and I soon found out why,
went out of his way to listen to me, come up with ideas and solutions and make sure I got the results I wanted. (Ask me about my main sewer line being plugged with tree roots and how he came over on a Saturday night because he wanted to make sure it was nothing due to the remodeling....it wasn't...and he helped me get it resolved...(thank you,
.....for interrupting your Saturday night plans to help me out!) I would highly recommend
and Happy Man Contracting to anyone......THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU......am off to
in my kitchen!!

-Debra S.

"Very pleased with the quality and professionalism of the contractor. Problems encountered were handled quickly and efficiently. Would highly recommend. Advised us" every day what was to be done the next day and showed up on time a every day. Would highly recommend that you ask for
to do the work.

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.

gave us information on material selection and design options. They repaired the dry rot on our home and now we have a safe deck to enjoy future summer on. The design he used for the deck censure?s we won?t have this problem again!! Our project was done in a week with little inconvenience, we are very happy with the final product.

Went well..missed original appointment time due to an injury but made up for it by doing a weekend appointment. Once they got started, went smoothly.

After much research online, on member forums & with ensuing positive feedback, we decided to give

to work on a project for our home.
The office staff deserves special mention at this point too as they are the first impression of the company and the ladies there have been a delight to talk to each time...Thorough, professional and extremely on task seems to be the mantra of this company personnel.
The sales man came out on the day we had scheduled with his staff.
All gentlemen went over the project approvals in detail, made notes, went over all the salient points of the project and reassured me -once again that the project will begin and finish in a set time frame.
The work was immediate, very neat, clean and orderly. The entire team was courteous and respectful of the space outside the home, the neighbors and the noise levels.
The back and side yard looked fresh & phenomenal when done and finished with a sealer.
HND was in constant communication with me each step of this process, there when I checked in on the work progress and right there to address any on going concern. The sales manager and his workers were in touch with each other right through so it is great example of the Right hand knowing what the Left Hand was doing each time!
A very special thank you to you

for doing such a great job on our remodeling project. We initially hired

We contacted three Angie’s List top rated contractors for estimates on our kitchen remodel project.
Ferndale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s Transformations was among the three.
Ferndale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s bid was not far from the others. When we met
Ferndale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, he was very knowledgeable about so many aspects of remodel projects. Our project involved running a gas line from one end of our house to the other to convert from electric to gas cooking.
Ferndale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
offered to arrange the gas line installation. He gave us suggestions on most every aspect from selecting granite for our countertops to relocating certain kitchen appliances to fit our kitchen space. He provided names and addresses for cabinet, appliance and granite merchants, offered to coordinate the payment for the plumber, the appliances, granite and tile, and even secured a wholesaler discount for us. He later arranged appliance delivery to coincide with the install. On the scheduled day for the kitchen demo,

’s team (

Ferndale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
phoned us to meet at his warehouse to review and approve how they planned to cut our granite slabs. On Monday of the following week the workers appeared to begin the granite, sink and appliance install. Then the new tile was laid on the walls. While there was a slight delay in the installation of our microwave, the setback was mostly our fault for selecting the wrong type -- a countertop rather than a wall mount. It had to be ordered. But, as soon as it was received,

appeared to install that and our kitchen hood. Also, every time

Ferndale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
is one-of-a-kind! He responded quickly to my request for an estimate and even came out on a Saturday morning to take a look at the project. His estimate was far more reasonable than the others we received! Scheduling was tricky, as we had to wait for landscaping to be completed first, and
Ferndale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was 100% patient and even checked in to see how it was going. He started the job as soon as we were ready! The screened in patio was completed quickly and professionally. It's exactly what we were looking for and exceeded our expectations. Already thinking of the next project for him to take on. :)
- Gina B.

Since there is no warranty on wood, and deck had been properly maintained, installers charged for replacement materials only. Deck was repaired on scheduled day off for installers.
- Debbie R.

We were really happy with the finished product. There are a few things that make Prime stand out. The crew is highly skilled and professional. They are not just getting the work done, but they approach it with a critical eye and a good sense of what will look good. They are willing to put in extra time to pay attention to details and will fix anything that is not quite right. They're friendly and pleasant to have in your home and they do a nice job of cleaning up every day when they are done.
As with all remodeling projects, there were a few hiccups, some of which were Prime's fault, and some not. What I liked was how they addressed the issues that came up-- always explaining the situation and how they were going to address it. They have a real energy around problem solving and making things right. We also made some changes as the project went on, and they were very flexible.
Ferndale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
is great about returning calls right away, and concerns are addressed immediately.
Again, we're really happy with our bathroom. All of it looks great, but I was particularly impressed with their tile installation. We had a ton of tile installed in our relatively small bathroom, and it was done so carefully so that it all looks perfect. They also did a really nice job with trimming out the window and door as well, both of which look better than I had even imagined they could look.
Prime is a trustworthy company, and you will be happy with the results. We had a really talented crew who put all their effort into careful, professional work that will last for years.
