I AM SURE YOU HAVE HEARD OF THE NIGHTMARE CONTRACTORS……
- The contractor who says, “Yes, I can start your project right away!” You sign a contract, he takes money and disappears.
- The contractor who starts demolition and then is nowhere to be seen for WEEKS!
- The contractor you hired from a “Services Website” only to find out after you hired him, he does not have a valid license, or insurance.
These are only a few items we can discuss. No contractor can begin “working” on your jobsite right away. Or shouldn’t. First, a plan has to be in place. Cabinetry has to be built or ordered, – this can take WEEKS depending on how large the project is. Other materials such as quart, plumbing fixtures, cabinet hardware, lighting, flooring, appliances, paint…..all need ordering as well, which can take a few days up to several weeks. It all depends on what is available, or what needs to be ordered or shipped (many times imported).
If a contractor begins demolition and then is nowhere to be seen. It could mean he didn’t charge enough. So he has to obtain funds by starting someone else’s project. This is illegal to take funds from one project to fund another. Or they took on too much work and they are not giving you the time and attention your project needs. In extreme busy years, this “could” be the case for all contractors. But not generally.
Beware of contractor service websites that give you referrals. The contractors “pay” big sums of money to be listed on these websites. The more they pay, the higher on the list they are. Do you think these companies are going to deny ANYONE (even illegal contractors) from paying them to list their name on their website? They are out to make a profit…….
SAUNDERS CONSTRUCTION CO. Will take time to make sure your project is done properly. We make sure your materials (either purchased by us, or purchased by you) are all on site BEFORE we begin demolition. We only take a maximum of $1000 deposit when we sign a contract with you. (it should only be 10% of the contract amount up to a max. of $1000). Then, we give you a progress payment schedule so that you know when additional payments will be due. A majority of our business (95%) comes from referrals. We have been in business for 30 years, serving mainly our own Santa Clarita Valley (most projects in Stevenson Ranch/Valencia area).
WE ARE YOUR CONTRACTOR FOR LIFE !!!!!
