"From the beginning,
was very collaborative, getting our (sometimes vague) impressions and requests, and giving us options. He was flexible" in allowing us to get our own appliances, and taking delivery even though he had not ordered them. He did the work mostly as explained. There were some delays caused by illness and so forth, but the work was completed in substantially the promised schedule, and, most importantly,
took care to minimize the time dueing whihc teh kitchen would not be usable; for example by carefully timing counter template and the other components, and by installing a temporary sink between the old counter was demolished and the time the new counter was installed. We had a glitch in which
showed that he is responsible and trustworthy: our faucet (a fancy German one with a filter) was either faulty or badly installed;
took it upon himself to talk to the manufacturer and to the dealer, replacing various parts over several weeks (involving several trips from his base that is not so close) and then finally prevailing upon the parties to replace my faucet with a completely different one, that he installed, at no additional cost to me.

"We contacted
because a few of our friends had a positive experience with him. During the planning phase, he listened to our needs and made" some great suggestions that we ended up going with. We had some challenges with figuring out how to design the roof lines to fit with our 2nd floor windows. Other contractors we looked at couldn't come up with a way. He was able to come up with a fantastic solution. His quote was very competitive/fair. He took us to some porches he had built in the past. Being open to showing us some past jobs went a long ways. The workmanship and quality were excellent. We particularly liked his work crew who had been with him for years (this is important because in the end, that is who does most of the work). They were polite and did quality work. We liked the fact that the work area was spotless at the end of each day.
stopped by at least daily to check on the progress, quality and our satisfaction. When we pick a contractor we also pick "the person".
is a quality person and we continue to see him around town and enjoy his company. We highly recommend

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". 

?

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.

Based on the very positive reviews found on Angie's list, my wife called
Russellville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
on March 9th to requests an estimate. We were told they could be out the next day to look at master bath and work up estimate. The next morning my wife called back to advise we would be out for just a bit in the morning but that if there was no answer at the home number we had left the day before, to please call her on her cellphone so that we could come straight back home. We never received a return call (at either the home or cell phone number) and no one ever showed ..
I thought we would give this company the benefit of the doubt but now a week has gone by with no further response from the company. We could perhaps understand if one contact number was inadvertently misplaced, but two ???

I was in need of a few small projects for my new home and contacted
Russellville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. After multiple attempts at trying to get someone on the phone I left several messages. Almost two weeks later, someone finally called me back and scheduled a date and time to come to my house to give me a quote. Of course, no one ever showed up. It was raining pretty bad that day so I anticipated that
Russellville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
might be late or not able to make it, so I called again (no one picked up of course) and I left a message asking if someone would still be making it and if not, if they would at least call me back so I could re-schedule. Its been a few weeks now, and no response still.
If you want someone's business, pick up your phone and return your calls.
