Even though white titled this little things choosing a Richmond contractor, much of this will apply to you no matter where you live in the U.S. It all started about two years ago when I hired a comapy after finding their website online when looking for a local contractor in my area. They did a great job installing windows on my home in Glen Allen Virginia and I was very happy with the results. To this day their energy efficient, keep my home quiet and still look very attractive. You can tell they knew what they were doing when they installed my replacement windows.
Never having worked with this contractor before, I was under the impression they mostly did replacement windows even though they have the word builders in their name. When it came time to have siding installed on my home I made a mistake of working with a different contractor whose work I was not so happy with. This other contractor was over budget, behind schedule, and I was not nearly as happy as the quality of work they performed as much of the siding had cracks and did not lay flat and I could tell I was going to have problems with water getting in between some of the cracks in the future.
I wasn’t going to make this mistake again for the following year when I wanted to build a sunroom onto my house, I knew I couldn’t afford to hire a contractor for the build like could not completely trust because it was such a big project. Once again I called them up and they were happy to come to my home, to a survey, and give me an accurate price quote and timeline for when the work could be completed.
These are all aspects that are very important to me when it comes time to have home improvement work done on my house. Even though I understand that some projects are going to go over budget and professionalism, honesty, and work quality of the most important things to me. Sometimes finding a specialist is not always the best solution. Find a builder that listens to your needs, who you can trust to do the job right the first time.
