How to Find a Great Contractor If you are planning a remodel, here are some tips on how to find a great contractor. 1. Check References: Check with your neighborhood association, friends, neighbors, and social network for reputable contractors. Visit their website, see reviews, Google their reputation and note their Better Business Bureau report. 2. Have a Preliminary Plan: When you finally have your ideas together, obtain a preliminary plan from an architect or designer. Your contractor then can accurately bid your project from that plan. If you accept the bid, the final plans will be first to go through permitting. Your contractor will process and obtain all required permits. Remember, any exterior work on homes in the Hollywood/Santa Monica Conservation District need a work review form submitted and approved before any work is started. 3. Talk to Several Contractors: Schedule a meeting to walk and talk your job and get written estimates from at least three. Local contractors are easier to contact if problems develop within the work in the future, and check if they have experience working under the conservation district guidelines. Ask the contractor for their local, physical address. 
Be suspicious of anyone who goes door to door. 4. Don't Pay Upfront: Don't be pressured into making an immediate decision, particularly with regard to signing a contract. Be cautious when I asked to pay a large deposit upfront. 
A good contractor will not ask for a deposit until materials are dropped on the job and progress has already been made. Then a 1st Draw will be submitted by the contractor to the customer. Job site walk throughs are important to keep everyone on page with timely progress. The final payment (usually 7%-10% of job total) should be held out until the punch list is completed and your satisfaction is obtained. Always write checks to a company, never an individual and do not pay cash. 5. Check Their Insurance: Make sure the contractor is properly insured and bonded. Ask the contractor for a certificate of insurance (COI), which should provide the name of the insurance company, policy number and policy limits the contractor carries. You can contact the insurance company directly to verify the coverage and make sure the policy is still in effect. Do not do business with a contractor who does not carry the appropriate insurance coverage. If the contractor is not insured, you may be liable for accidents that occur on your property. 6. Get Everything in Writing: Secure a comprehensive contract before work begins. Get everything in writing, read all of the fine print and make sure the contract is clear and well written. Consider having a lawyer review the proposed contract for your protection before you sign it if the project involves substantial costs. 7. Understand Your Right to Cancel: Federal law may require a "cooling off " period, in which you can cancel the contract without penalty. Check the Federal Trade Commission and the laws of Texas to understand your rights. Be sure to follow applicable rules during the cooling off period. If you do cancel, consider sending the notice of cancellation by registered mail to ensure you have proof of the cancellation. 8. Anticipate Delays: Delays happen, and may not be the fault of your contractor. In spite of the timeline outlined in your contract, circumstances such as weather may prevent the work from remaining on schedule. Be realistic and prepared to adjust your plans accordingly. 9. Keep a Job File: Keep your contract and all the supporting documents in one folder. Your file should also contain any change orders, plans and specifications, bills and invoices, canceled checks, and certificates of insurance and any letters, notes, or correspondence with the contractor. Word of mouth is still your best friend when choosing your contractor and it's important you like and trust who you choose - as some larger jobs could go on for months.

to the winner! In the Dog House When you think of fine home-builders showcasing their work in East Dallas, you think mostly of beautiful older, restored and remodeled homes on lush, green lots full of trees. While the neighborhoods are now sprinkled with newly constructed homes as well, East Dallas residents all are proud of the eclectic styles in their tight-knit neighborhoods. It's in that neighborhood spirit that Residential Home-builder, Eric Spinazzola put his skills to the test to build his most recent construction project created as a donation effort to Metro Paws Animal Hospital, our premiere Veterinary Clinics. This Spinazzola custom DOG house debuted in the 5th annual Hollywood Heights Newellian Easter Parade! "It was such a good time, such energy, family and neighborhood spirit, all made possible by all the neighborhood volunteers. We wanted to do something unique for our float, something to give back to the neighborhood somehow," said Spinazzola, "and being a dog owner of long-time companion, Sadie the Siberian Husky, I couldn't think of a better way to raise awareness for Metro Paws! They are so passionate about caring for our neighborhood pets and donate so much of their time to caring for lost, or abandoned doggies and kitties until they are healthy and have happy homes." Metro Paws partners, Dr. Jennifer Lavender and Dr. Kathryn Sarpong were thrilled by the gesture and eager to have the house on display at Metro Paws Animal Hospital located at 1910 Skillman St. Dallas, TX, 75206, where it remains until the lucky winner is announced!
