Maybe it has been the result of the current housing situation but the question of working with a Home Improvement loan has not been all that common of late. But things seem to be turning around a … (13 comments)

What Does It Mean To Be a Bonded Contractor?
 
In an earlier post, I discussed the important of hiring a licensed contractor for projects over $500 including materials. While hiring a licensed contractor is not a guarantee that your job will be done to your satisfaction, it is a recommended step in the selection of a home improvement professional.
One of the requirements as a licensed general contractor with the Contractors State Licensing Board is to be bonded. Currently, the minimum bond amount is $12,500 in the State of California and for most contractors; it is called a California … (14 comments)

Are You Licensed?

Anyone with a little time and money can go to their local governmental office and get a license. Licenses are issued every day in California for all sorts of businesses. That is not the license that you are asking about is it? Course not! You want to know if I am licensed as a general contractor in the State of California.
If you plan on hiring a contractor to do some work for you, it is very important that you ask the right questions.

FAQ - Do I Have To Fix The Dry Rot Repairs
in Folsom, CA Right Now?
 
The quick answer is no, you don’t have to make any dry rot repairs in Sacramento. But…
There are some others things that need to be taken into consideration though. If you are selling your home, it may be a part of the deal to rid the home of dry rot before the close of escrow. If that is the case, you want to get this taken care of right away and signed off.

Some reasons why you may need to … (13 comments)

FAQ – Does it look bad? How bad is it going to be?
 
When I get a call to come look at water damaged and dry rot repair, one of the first questions that I get asked is “How bad does it look?” Usually this question happen as soon as I see the area of repair, they are looking for my initial opinion. I’ve done this sort of repair for some time now; I probably could make an educated guess.
 
I can look at many different damaged areas and feel pretty confident in what the problem is and … (15 comments)

FAQ – Will you haul everything away?
 
Yes, we always haul away all of our construction debris.
 
There are many reasons for getting all that old building materials off site quickly.
Safety – Many accidents involve stepping on nails or bumping into piles of debris. Getting the pile into a trailer and to the landfill is best.
Make room – Things can get crowded with stuff lying around.
Odor – Water damaged building materials has an odor that is best loaded and removed.
Create an atmosphere of rebuilding – It is amazing how much better a job site looks … (41 comments)

FAQ – Do you work weekends?
 
There was a time when I would have said yes, every weekend. I have found that I can get a lot more done during the week, while weekends can be harder to get many things done. Suppliers may not be open on the weekend, hardware store are crowded with the do-it-yourselfers, and scheduling can be troublesome.
So for the most part I no longer schedule to work on the weekend. There are things that I do – estimates, billing, banking and such – but you will not see me on the job site … (11 comments)

faq: Do you work with Insurance Companies? - 05/30/13 01:57 AM
 
Do you work with Insurance Companies?
When something goes wrong with your insured property, you want a contractor that can respond quickly and do quality work. Over the years we have worked with many of the larger insurance companies in meeting this objective. Sometimes it is a call from the insurance adjustor, other times it is from the insured themselves.
Working on an insurance claim for a homeowner requires some additional steps for the contractor. Of course the contractor has to have proof of insurance, qualifying contractor’s license, workers compensation insurance, and all the important documentation. Most contractors are … (14 comments)

Can I send you the termite report?
It has been our experience that most transactions involve several inspections by either the buyer or the seller. We often get calls after the parties receive one or both of these reports. The findings in the reports are right in line with what we do, as a general contractor in Sacramento I have seen hundreds of reports.
Whether the buyer or seller is interested in getting the work done, we will get a call asking if this is something that we are interested in looking into. We almost always say “yes”, but usually … (9 comments)

I don’t know what to do, what would an expert general contractor suggest?
 
If you are faced with making a decision about your dry rot or water damage problem, it would be a good idea to ask someone who knows about and has experience in handling these moisture related conditions. As general contractor with 25 years of experience in the removal and repair of dry rot and water damage repair, I think it is important to find out what should be done. Whether you choose to follow the contractor’s advice, is your own business. At least find out what … (16 comments)

faq: I've repaired it already, why is this water damage recurring? - 06/05/12 05:21 PM
 
I've repaired it already, why is this water damage recurring?
 
If the same water damage recurs, then the water damage problem was never corrected properly. Sure, the damage may have been removed and new material put in its place, but the problem still exists. So don’t have the same repair done again.
It is important that the contractor or handyman that you hire understands why this sort of thing happens. Where is the water getting in? Is the flashing installed correctly? Are the windows leaking? These and many more questions need to be asked by the repair person if … (10 comments)

in my home improvement project?
 
 
You have thought about this project for a very long time; electrical, plumbing, window locations, even the color of the tile grout. You did all the research and planning, found the right contractor and your home improvement has begun. Then it happens, you have to ask.

faq: Do you give free estimates? - 05/30/12 11:19 PM
 
Do you give free estimates?
 
Absolutely!
In my 25 years as a General Contractor, I have never charged for an estimate. I have heard that some contractors charge a fee for their efforts, sounds kind of silly to me. If someone is thinking about doing some work around the house, or taking care of some repairs that need to be done, I don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to bid. If the contractor isn’t getting enough work to justify giving free estimates, maybe they need to check how they do things.

 
There is a … (16 comments)

Do I need to get a building permit to do this?
 
It is important that your home improvement project be done properly, with building permits. Building permits allow the inspection of the work being done by the contractor, and provide a level of comfort to the property owner, that things are being done correctly.
 
This is going to depend on: Where the improvement is located and What is being done.
 
The requirements for getting a permit varies with the location, contacting the city, county, or town where the job is being performed is the best place to … (12 comments)

General Liability Insurance covers damage the contractor may cause to your property. Workers Compensation Insurance covers the contractor’s employee injuries while working at your property.  
Without either of these insurance coverages, you may be financially responsible for any accidents … (12 comments)
