"They tore up the lanai and then started to come to the job less & less. The owner would call and ask them when are you going to finish the lanai - they would" say they were coming down today but would never show up. They started out nice but soon became argumentative, defensive, and would say anything to get you out of their face. The amount of
and b******** they would say was unbelievable. This went on for 4 months:
would show up at 7:30 am and talk very loudly on his cell phone; we would ask him to keep it down and he would say "on a construction site we start at 7:00 am". Well you're not on a construction site, you're on private property and we are asking you to keep it down. Then
would show up around 8:00 am - probably waiting to see if
was going to bust them so he'd wait to get the "all clear" from
. They are NOT licensed contractors so they were always looking over their shoulders to make sure
wasn't driving up. They would work for 2 hours, then leave for lunch but they wouldn't put their tools away. Two hours later they would come back, pack up their tools and leave. They were doing as little as possible each week. The owner finally had to hire an attorney to get rid of them and then hire a "licensed contractor" to finish the job.
drives a black Toyota Tacoma and
drives a blue Toyota Prius. We know this is their mode of operation, i.e., they get a job, start out nice, then after they rip your home apart & get money, things slow way down to a crawl. When you call
, he'll give you one excuse after another. We know of another family that had the same results that we did. If you run across these two guys - don't be fooled by their talk of working on the most expensive homes on the Big Island. They are going to be a hassle and you're going to regret ever hiring them.

"I called 2 places on angies`s list.First place said they would return my call in couple of days,never heard from them .
came out same day" and gave me an estament. He told me he could get to it in about 4 weeks.He was able to get to it in a couple of weeks.He completed the job to my satisfaction.I will definitely use him again in the future.

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.


Remodeling reviews in Russellville


Quote - Some back and forth on the quote but overall pretty well. Some cost creep on the project from initial estimate. Some of it my fault and some added by contractor so just plan on it and it is not so painful.
Flatwork (Concrete) - Some dips in the finished product but overall a really nice job. They ran into problems and took care of them without coming back asking for more money or time.
Carpentry - Fantastic job. The garage looks great and is well constructed.
Siding/Trim - Looks great. Can't believe the match to the original house. It does not look like a garage with our design and just looks like part of the house. Siding is concrete and original siding is cracking. They knew of the issues and purchased a brand which should not have the issue.
Electrical - Pretty easy job and good job. Only issue was a 230V pipe ran outside the wall and back in. Had to argue a little to get it put in the wall. Would have looked pretty ridiculous later after drywall was complete but Rich sorted it out.
Paint - Excellent job on this. Matched the existing house perfectly. Crew was awesome. An area of a little $ creep here as we had a new door but it was not included in the price to paint it. Pretty minor but just something you kind of shake your head at. Again, at quote I should have asked for much more detail and possibly would have seen this.
Overhead doors - Disappointing. Expensive for the job, poor quality and would not stand behind their work to make it right. The company is well known in St.
Russellville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and I was shocked it went this way. We ended up not paying the complete amount which was still more than other companies would have charged for the entire job I believe. The actual installer had no idea really of the job as he was 'just installing what they gave me' he told us. At initial install, when the door closed it caught on the trim to the point it was going to pull it off the garage but the installer said nothing and just left. This item was discussed at the quote stage and many times as it was critical item in the build and it still was not right. I had to be in the middle of this more than I should have as I am not the contractor and eventually we gave up. I wanted to give an 'A' across the board but this is the item which dropped the rating. I hope they find another sub-contractor for this work in the future.
Overall I was very happy with the project and
Russellville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Co. Issues always arise and other than the overhead doors, they were solved to my satisfaction. They are not the cheapest but that is not what I was looking for. The crew was great and the minor issues we had were solved by Rich. The neighbors commented they have never seen such a clean construction site which is saying something when our houses are only 5 feet apart.

Phenomenal company and service. Polite, punctual, and professional company. Renovated my 2 family home and added a 3rd floor. We decided to completely gut our existing house which included 2 kitchens, and 3 baths. Also all new electric, plumbing, flooring, windows, doors and brick work. This was a project very few companies are capable of completing,

was excellent, they have a great staff, who are capable of doing a wide range of work and detailed work. Our house is gorgeous, I would absolutely recommend them and use them again. Nick is extremely knowledgeable and has a great sense of design, seriously a pleasure to work with.

We requested estimates from two different companies on Angie's List and both companies had good reviews and their price quotes were pretty close to each other. We finally selected

and signed a contract back in April 2015. Our project was relatively small but because of the roof work, we needed some architectural and engineering work to meet Miami-

TERRIBLE!! Avoid this contractor!!! Work completed was shoddy and they have yet to complete contracted work!! Started work in January of 2015 with a planned completion of March 2015. Work still not completed as of October 2015.

Our family hired the
Russellville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
brothers from CSI to upgrade our 70’s era ranch home. CSI was one of three contractors that visited our home. On the day of the estimate CSI arrived on time. Of the three contractors, only two actually did a written estimate. CSI's submitted estimate was a slightly higher estimate than the other written or verbal estimates given.

CSI was hired to fully remodel two bathrooms and our master bedroom. CSI was able to begin working as soon as we had signed the contract and kept us up to date on when they would be in our house working. CSI had estimated that our master bathroom remodel which included relocating the toilet and sink would take approximately five weeks. They completed the remodel as scheduled and began working on our second bathroom immediately completed ensuring we had at least one bathroom at all time. The tiled walk in bathroom with the glass front is absolutely beautiful.

CSI was continuously available by phone, email and in a couple of instances via text message to make last minute changes or work issues, allowing our family to have a much more active participation in its remodel as it progressed. CSI scrapped the popcorn off of the bathroom and bedroom ceilings, added recessed lighting in the bedroom and expanded the closet.

Our only complication following the remodel was a leaky toilet. We turned off the water and called CSI. A plumber was out within the next few days to fix the leak. The plumber could have been there that day, however the toilet was not critically needed, so we opted for the work in the following days.

We are planning on further remodel work on our kitchen, rewire our home and possible expansion of living quarters intp our garage. CSI will be our only choice for future remodels.

Approx cost of service/material (16,000) is estimate, don't recall w/out looking up receipts and that would only upset me all over.
Advertised bath remodels at a certain price. Actual estimates and quotes higher, but inclusive. I.e. we didn't need to rent a dumpster; they would remove old material.
Work done: demolished main flood bath,removed tiled walls, floors, toilet, sink, tub. Installed sheet rock, and new fixtures of our selection and cost. Installed tile flooring; painted, etc.
Hooked up ceiling light with fan and nightlight. But did not hook up the nightlight; did not at first hook up the exhaust fan and vent it. Had to follow up and get that done. Did not/could not vent where he had originally indicated; had to re-route.
The existing window lift mechanism was rendered inoperable due to them not knowing how to use it. (a level/pressure mechanism each window had) So that was broken and not fixable w/out complete removal; leaving us with a window that would not lift without extreme difficulty due to the pressure exerted by the broken mechanism.
Finish work: trim, painting. Not satisfactory considering that professionals were doing it. To this day the visible results are bothersome.
Basement bath was fully enclosed in tile floor, ceiling and walls. Demolition took twice as long as they anticipated due to the 60 year old construction (this bath was '
Russellville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
strength) yet somehow it was conveyed to be 'our' fault.
This finished product too leaves a bit of exasperation: wood trim work does not meet edges of newly installed baseboard heat.
Also there were extra costs we were presented with; in fact we were presented with a detailed list of 'extra' cost items, some of which were thought to have been included in contract. So the jobs cost 2 to 3 thousand more than anticipated, with overall results being about as nice as novices doing the work. His remark? I
Russellville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
make some money here.
So overall we were not really satisfied with the results, the attitudes, and the costs.

Paragon was very professional starting from our first phone call, we were very impressed with how quickly they responded and also how quickly they met with us and put together all the necessary details and a written proposal. We were not that organised and very concerned about selecting the right contractor that could help us with some design and selection to make things go smoothly. We met with
Russellville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
their bathroom designer and with the help of a few checklists and some design images we felt comfortable we were making the right choices. We did move out for a month which made everything easier and were pleasantly surprised when we came home at how much work had been completed and how neat and clean things were. The end result is nothing short of beautiful and we are glad we chose to work with a company like Paragon and will certainly recommend them to our friends and family.

was professional, kept to the business at hand. Easy to work with. He asked for permission before he moved ahead with each project. Completed work in good time. Pleasant personality. Definitely will ask him to come back for other renovation or handiman projects.
