Why You Should Hire a Team Instead of a General Contractor

Posted by Alex Rodriguez

Through the years the projects that we have taken on have become more technical with more facets of complexity. More choices in materials, elements of design and time constrictions due to professional obligations all contribute to a very challenging building environment. Technology has paved the way for new materials such as 3d tile patterns, complex plumbing system and digital integration in the home. Truth be told, residential construction is widely tainted by flaky and sloppy people of ill repute for those of us who strive to deliver a positive experience and quality service to clients. I think it is fair to set a reasonable expectation.

Lousy Construction Results: Failed Home Remodel Construction Project

Posted by Lydia Solis

It is widely known that the home remodel industry is rife with unsavory characters. The common slick pushy sales man who wears way too much cologne.  One thing that truly chaps my hide is when people move forward and hire someone because they quoted them a “super deal.” The customer was also promised the world in expensive upgrades, etc., etc. This job only has two roads. One leads to the $1 Fare and the other to the magic show. The $1 is when a customer feels like they are on a rollercoaster that rattles and is a terrifying ride. Shoddy work and no return phone calls from the contractor. The magic show is when the contractor disappears with the customer’s money and abandons the project. For a while I thought that the great recession had killed off most of these degenerate self-proclaimed ‘contractors.’  As the economy continues to grow I have noticed that some of these scumbags are slithering their way back into the market. If you can sense my contempt for these sleazy people it because they cause an enormous amount of havoc in the construction industry. Bad contractors cause home owner major anxiety. When I first meet with people it takes about 15 minutes for them to get comfortable with me. I like to think that my ethics and reputation help set their mind at ease. In most cases this is true, but I do notice more often than not people have their defenses up.
