installed super gutters several years ago when he built our screen room. We liked them so much (look good, very easy to keep clean) we've" had him install them on other parts of our house. After recent rainstorms we decided to add another section. Also, we decided to eliminate a downspout at the back of the house because we no longer have a good way to route the water. As always,
did an excellent job meeting all our requests. Lots of companies can slap up gutters but
is very good at figuring out how to make them work so the water flows correctly. He makes excellent suggestions and is always concerned about the final appearance of his work. Our house looks better with
's gutters than it did without them. We're always very, very pleased with his work.

To the project, my fault for not reading my contract he never Itemized those items I took his word. Also while signing He mention a payment plan.Mr.
stated "don't worry you don't have to pay all the money at once you can do payment plans"I just paid $2000.00 half of the project I paid him about a week ago today Sep 10.

. The delivery guy with pavers was very lazy and did not delivered pavers in the right place of the house if I wouldn't have been at home he would have left them in my front yard on top of my lawn . I had to asked him to move them. End result aweek after paying half and asking him to do a payment plan of 2,000..in $500 dollar payments for four months
I want my patio to look nice and the way it is is not! The secretary just called to harass me over the phone saying I have to pay the other 2,000.00 rightaway.So Mr. J. Fifus never call me back to arrange the payments like he said but he let the secretary call to harrasme. So just ended the call with him, He apologize for his srcretary, but at the end told me that my job did not pay his bills (so my money was penuts) and that they don't finance for that.Nice to know...also the stones are not like they look in the pictures. I will update with pictures.

Sunrooms and patios

Porches and sunrooms can add space and character to any home. From helping to create a unique look to the many benefits that they offer to the homeowner, these structures have the ability to add visual appeal and extra living space to any home when properly constructed.

Whether you’re planning a kitchen and bathroom remodel, or just want to add some extra living space to your home, do your homework before you hire. Separating the good contractors from the bad isn’t as difficult as it might seem.

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.

, and Rich did a great job overall. These guys were very nice and very professional. They put up with our barking dogs for 2 weeks too. Our house was resided, these guys went above and beyond. Took care of all the little things that other contractors would have blown off. The house looks so much nicer now. For what we paid, the overall quality of the work was outstanding. I would hire these guys again if the price was right.

We met with the sales person, who was helpful and explained the project. Even though he said there may be some delay in starting, he assured us the work would be done by June 22nd, so we agreed. We were
Eau Claire Patio And Sunroom Builders Provider Name Locked
to believe that the actual time, once started, would only be a few days, but with inspections, painters and the multi-step construction, the process dragged on for a month and a half. The good news is they do high quality work and the end result was beautiful. They also did the work without it being necessary for me to be home. The bad news is that I had to call continually to see when things were going to be done and there was a lot of confusion with when the painters could actually paint, which slowed the job down further. I would give their product an A, but I feel like the organization in getting things done in a timely manner sadly dragged down my overall opinion of this company.

It went well but as I was writing out the check I noticed a hunk of cement in the driveway that had fallen out of the corner tile. I pointed it out and asked what it was and they said "oh, that fell off the roof. We were gonna glue it back up..... So I held on to the check until they fixed it. After they left I saw that another piece had fallen off the other end and of course, they were gone and didn't glue it back! Sad ending to what would have been a great job.

It was amazing, no joke! Timely and also respectful. I was very impressed with how knowable they were and I could tell they were all about saving me money and time. They fixed what was important and nothing more unless I wanted it. Then when the worker came he was fast and respectful. Came in and went to work. And it looked beautiful and we are so happy.
