I just want to share this experience from my friend house, I see her so suffering about her remodeling house with this contractor:
Just be carefully when you sign the contract- make sure do not deposit & rush to sign the contract- read more detail- make sure contractor put the the job start including from the blue print day approve- if not > it'll take you couple months for them submit your blue print. first time meet very nice & professional business man, but after contract sign - hardly contact them- no update information, they promise take you see another house that they done before, but you'll never see it. If you try to contact them- you'll hear "F" words from their response. How proffesional is it?
