"Mr. Grady was one of the most professional, friendly, and useful contractors with whom I have ever had the pleasure to work. He exceeded my expectations in every category. This man is more than a simple plaster contractor - he is an artist who is more than fair to his customer. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to have a job done fairly, promptly, and completely."

"Gary called me almost immediately after I filled out the contact form. He stayed in communication with me even after having to delay for a day due to weather. The price that he gave me was great. Franz did an excellent job and finished in a timely manner, cleaning up the area as well. Thank you Gary and Franz for a job well done!"

"He is done a lot of work at our home, he is one of the best contractors I have ever used. He has remodeled several rooms in my home. I have the utmost respect and confidence in him and find him very trustworthy. The value that he adds to each job is unmatched. I like to learn, he is very thorough and has given my priceless information. He is also one of the most integral contractors I have ever worked with. He manages the entire project and his subcontractors from start to finish and ensures that their work is up to his standards. I like the fact that I can present an idea that might be unconventional and he is able to collaborate with me on a project."

For remodeling and other large-scale home projects, hiring a general contractor can make the difference between a chaotic and stressful waste of time and a hassle-free experience. They are a "jack of all trades" who make sure a job is completed on-time and within budget. They hire and manage subcontractors, pull permits, buy materials, and handle issues related to liability and warranties.

While it's important to get quotes from at least 3 contractors before hiring anyone and to watch out for warning signs (for example, if they request the entire payment upfront), it can be equally as important to make sure they are nearby. Contractors in your area can negotiate better prices for materials and labor, can source local materials, and typically know your area's code requirements.

When you start to interview candidates, here are some questions you should ask:

  • Are you licensed and do you have general liability and workman's compensation insurance?
  • Do you have client references, industry certifications, and have there been any legal suits against your company?
  • How long have you been in business and do you guarantee your work?
  • What is the structure of the payment agreements?
  • Can you describe and compare my project to others you have completed and what challenges may arise?
