Tip-offs to Potential Rip-offs
Right from the start, you can eliminate what are likely to be less-than-reputable contractors by considering a list of traits common to rip-off artists. Both the Federal Trade Commission and the Better Business Bureau have found the following to be indications that a contractor may not be interested in satisfying customers:
- Solicits door-to-door: Be suspicious of contractors who attempt to gain business by visiting door-to-door. "Cold calls" can sometimes mean that the contractor is not from a local, established business but is instead just passing through and trying to make a quick buck.
- Has materials left over from a previous job: It is not your lucky day when a contractor shows up on your doorstep offering a cut-rate price on a project because they have materials left over from a recent job at your neighbor’s house or the house “down the street.” This is a common ploy of fly-by-night operators or handymen who are based out-of-state and use their pick-up trucks as their place of business.
- Asks you to get the required building permits: This could be a sign that the contractor is hoping to avoid contact with the local agency that issues such permits. Perhaps he is not licensed or registered, as required by your state or locality. A competent contractor will get all the necessary permits before starting work on your project.

Roofing and Siding
By not aligning ourselves with any one brand of shingle or siding, we have expanded our range of options. We have extensive experience installing most common materials available in the industry and several unique ones. We also have a unique roof-to-chimney and skylight flashing system. We can eliminate your leaks until it is time to replace your roof, instead of forcing you to replace your whole roof before you have to.
Cabinets and Counters
Cabinets and counter tops can be a very difficult purchase. We are proud to sell Kraftmaid and Merillatt cabinetry as our standard selections, and there are plenty of semi-custom cabinets on the market as well. The counter top industry is expanding at an exponential rate and there are new materials available everyday. Although we have experience with remarkably more materials than most other contractors, there are always more out there that need research. Have us explain the pros and cons of all of these surfaces and let us help you make the best decision for your project.
