Would not recommend this company. Contracts were signed in Nov. 2008. Work started Feb 2009 and the kitchen was to be finished mid to end of Mar. 2009. Then in Dec. 2009 the kitchen was still not finished, I fired them and finished the kitchen myself, and I was out the money I already paid them to finish the job.

Whatever company you go with be aware of the following.

Do NOT agree to pay for anything up front. If you are going to pay in stages pay after the work or product is to your satisfaction, or you may not see them again and you are out your money, good luck getting your money back. A contractor that claims he has to pay is supplier first may not be in good standings in this economy and may need the money.

Get everything in writing before work continues. They WILL forget to put it in writing later or claim that it was not agreed on and ask you to show them the contract, which states such changes.

Do NOT agree to Arbitration, this takes away your legal rights to sue in a court of law if there is a dispute.

Put a completion date for the project and if it is not completed by that date make there be penalties, this discourages them from walking off from frivolous excuses or unnecessary delays.

If the bids seem to good they may be low balled to get your business and once the work starts they will say it was a pre-existing or unforeseen obstacles which will cost you much more, a good contractor will know what to look at when putting the bid together.

Also make sure the bid is for the products or service you want, some put the base product/service in the bid and it will always ends up the product you want is an upgrade from the base they put in the bid after you sign the contract it is too late.

Read the contract closely, beware of words like standard practice, workman like manner, arbitration, reasonable effort, all these terms mean something different to everyone.
