I called to inquire about getting a seat in the next A.D.E.T.S class ( Explaination,..Adets classes are A 16 hour driver education class as required by NC court and the NC DMV to re-enstate a suspended NCDL License) and was quite surprized to find out they were having not only the soonest classes of 10 or so prior offices I called, GSO, WS, and Reidsville wise,...but the classes and counselor services were open for business on the weekends 8am to 12 noon to accomidate best for the client,... YEs,...I said,... they did these classes on the weekends,... not M-F like EVERY one of the calls I made before were doing,...........Hats off guys! On a side note, the person who answered the phone and reserved my seat for the class,...was SUPER informative and quite patient with me and my 20 questions,... they took my call 2-3 minutes from 5pm (Which I'm assuming is closing time??) and stayed on the phone answering questions cheerfully and to the fullest extent, never showing signs of rushing me off the line, even at 10 to 15 minutes after 5pm, the operator was still ready for anyother questions I may have had further... What a great first impression!!! And services on weekends!!!!! Uber cool Seriously!!! A Professional Counseling office open on week-ends,...that one still gets me! :) Can't say I've ever run into that before.

This shop is by far the best in town. The prices were drastically lower than anywhere else I went to. I got a tattoo on the whole left side of my back that took 11 hours to complete not including the time it took the artist to completely design and draw the idea I had, and it only cost $500. Compare that to every other shop in the area that wanted anywhere from $80 to $120 AN HOUR. Yeah, that's an average of $1000 anywhere else. Also, they have hi-def lcd tvs hanging on the walls in every tattoo room to keep your mind busy while you are getting that new tattoo. Everything in this place is very clean and everyone is very professional. So, if you are looking for a tattoo I definitely recommend Seven Sagas Tattoo. Also, I'm not sure if the person below me is talking about the same person, but the Jason that works at Seven Sagas is definitely one of the best and most professional artists in town.

Wow where do I start...Got my tattoo Wednesday just two days ago. After seeing the cherry blossoms on another person I decided to get my first official tattoo. Mike is so good at what he does and he makes you feel very comfortable. After all I did get my tattoo in a very sensitive place......buttock. He and Travis are one hilarious team that keeps you laughing instead of crying. I was so glad that I did my research and found Mike and can't wait to get another tattoo. I would recommend anyone to this establishment. It's so clean, professional, and just the right place for a female such as myself to feel soooo comfortable. If you want some talented dudes, these are the ones you should look up. They are truly awesome!! Thanks Mike and Travis keep the jokes coming.

Little John's Tattoo
Ellie K. rated

I came here with my girlfriend, aunt and her cousin because clearly he wanted a tattoo. From the moment we walked in the heavyset woman at the front desk had a attitude problem. She was pretty short and seemed like she had better things to do. The tattooists however seem very personable and knowledgeable about their craft. We came to the conclusion that she is racist. It's the only knowledgeable explanation one could come up with after noticing how she interacted with people who have white skin as she does. Just for a reference I am black and they are of Spanish decent. I'm not sure if she is always like that or maybe just having an off day but if you're the first contact of any establishment you may want to work on your customer service/interpersonal skills.

Forsaken Art Tattoo & Piercing Studio
Donna A. rated

I have been to a lot of tattoo shops, and this is probably the best, cleanest, most comfortable one I have ever been to. I went in, cold, to talk to "someone" about an idea I had for a tattoo. I was really lucky to speak with Mike, who is the owner ( I didn't know this at the time). He took my idea, and was so enthusiastic about what I wanted - he took the idea and ran with it. He designed a gorgeous drawing, which he turned into a beautiful tattoo. I love it, and am proud to wear it - (body as art gallery) - I would recommend anyone who cares about quality work, and knows what they want - He can make it happen, above and beyond your expectations. If you are wanting to get a tattoo, I say, go! Go right now and talk to him!

Copy King Printing
Joe F. rated

There’s no recognition like recognition from your peers. Copy King, Nick and Steve, are gentlemen in the industry. Long story short: In one day, they solved a crisis that would’ve been an emotional disaster for a local family that suffered the loss of their Mom. It was more than ink on paper. Nick and Steve printed and delivered 600 booklets in 4 hours with no advance notice. They were trusted and depended on to get it done right. I have no idea what other orders were on their desks, they made me feel like mine was the only one. I, Joe Farage, President of Buffalo Printing Co. highly recommend Copy King for your next print project.

best shop in this area

they have the best selection of artists. a lot of shops are snobby and tell u they won't do this or that, or they're not interested in working with u cause of their large egos. not this shop, u can get any kind of tattoo you want. they will try to help u get what u want, and make artistic suggestions so you end up with a nice piece. the piercing department looks good too, even tho i'm more into tattoos i have heard good things about their piercers. some people say they are expensive, but u get what u pay for in my opinion. quality work. the prices are comparable to a larger city, and i think the work is better. good job guys.

Al-Con Counseling Associates

Professional and empathic. I started out with a different "school" who treated us all like we were the scum of the earth regardless of the circumstances. I had to stop attending for a while due to some very severe personal circumstances. It was very poorly handled, but thankfully, I was referred to Al-Con. They were empathetic to an unusual situation and helped me deal with the logistics. The intstructor was engaging, encouraged participation and made the the "classes" as enjoyable as possible while covering important topics. I felt it was a balanced approach to a critical topic.

Mike Williams at Forsaken Art has create for me one of the most artistic, creative, and beautiful back pieces that I have ever seen. He took my idea, created the drawing, and applied the tattoo perfectly onto my back. The coloring, lighting effects, and shading are perfect and my wonderful Gandalf back-piece is the envy of everybody that has seen it. I highly recommend Forsaken Art for your custom ink because I could not be happier with my results. I already have another idea for another piece and I can't wait to see what Mike will do with that one :-)

The Best Tattoo Studio in Town

I have received tattoos from both Greg and Houston, and more piercings than you can count from Wendi. Everything has always been great and over the last four years I have never had a problem. The shop is artist owned and they take great pride in being the best and cleanest place in town. If you like classic or custom tattoos this is the place to go as their artists can produce a large variety of pieces. They take the time to go over aftercare instructions every time to ensure the best possible final product.

Did You Know?

There has perhaps never been a better tool for do-it-yourself home handymen than the internet. With detailed instructions and videos explaining how to perform a number of common maintenance and renovation tasks around a house, an untrained homeowner might be surprised at how much he or she can accomplish with a quick search online. But even with all of this information, there are still many jobs that lie far outside the scope of most DIY enthusiasts. General contractors are there to fill in this gap.

A general contractor specializes in seeing a home remodel or repair project through from start to finish. To do this, the contractor works with the client - whether they are a homeowner or business - to nail down the scope of the work. Then he or she will turn to one or more subcontractors for specific tasks, like equipment operation, design, electrical work or whatever else is needed.

In essence, general contractors could be thought of as middlemen between a homeowner or business owner and any number of specialists. To get their money's worth, many assume they should just "cut out the middleman" and hire specialists directly, but this often proves more difficult in practice. General contractors won't be completing an entire project by themselves, but should have a long list of dependable experts who can work together and accomplish any task. They might also serve as the manager on the site of a construction project, overseeing workers and providing guidance and assistance when needed. For larger projects, though, the contractor might only handle administrative matters and employ a foreman or other professional for on-site supervision.

Common Jobs

There are many general contractors who also specialize in certain tasks themselves. There is usually at least one general contractor on hand to organize the construction of an entire home, for example. But general contractors could also help a homeowner add an additional bedroom, build an in-ground pool or complete a major landscaping project. They could also work with a business to add or improve office space, whether that means making more room or converting a commercial building from a nail salon to a restaurant. Basically, if it's a job that involves building or repairing, a general contractor probably knows how to get it done.

No matter what the exact job may be, a contractor will probably need to accomplish several other essential tasks in pursuit of the ultimate goal, which may include:

  • Understanding and applying for building permits to meet local regulations
  • Organizing a budget and adhering to it throughout the project
  • Gathering all the necessary tools and equipment, from hammers and shovels to large excavators and generators
  • Securing the construction site and equipment after work hours
  • Working with personnel on-site to address any issues
  • Keeping records of materials, labor and all other expenses

Licensing

Every general contractor performing any kind of work on a project must be licensed to do so in their state. The guidelines for the specifics on licensing vary from state to state. Some states might only require registration of contractors, which is different from licensing. Registration typically means that there must be a written record of what work is being performed and by whom, but it does not guarantee professional knowledge. Licensing, on the other hand, involves an examination process to assess professional competence.

Whether your state requires licensing or registration of contractors, there should be a record of most professionals willing to complete certain projects in your area. Check your state or county website for more information. In states that require licensing, every licensed contractor's contact information is available online or from another public source.

Not every project needs to be completed by a licensed or registered contractor. If it's just a minor job that won't take more than a day or two, and will cost less than a few hundred dollars, it's likely not necessary to find a licensed or registered contractor. However, anything bigger or more expensive, or a project involving plumbing or electrical work, needs to be completed by a licensed or registered professional.

General contractors also must be covered by an insurance policy. This should include liability coverage for any property damage that could be inflicted in the course of a job. It should also include a worker's compensation policy in case anyone is injured on the job. Before hiring a contractor for anything, ask for written proof of this insurance to see exactly what is covered. 

Trade Associations

A number of trade associations for contractors in the U.S. exist. Some of the biggest include:

  • Associated General Contractors of America: Represents more than 6,500 general contracting firms and more than 9,000 specialty contractors nationwide.
  • Associated Builders and Contractors: Represents non-union contracting firms.

Most trade associations for general contractors will provide references for anyone looking to hire a contractor for a specific project. They may also provide a number of benefits for their members, including assistance with licensing, training, insurance and business development.

Hiring a General Contractor

No matter what you need accomplished, you want to choose a contractor who can get the job done right at a reasonable price. Obviously, this is easier said than done, but there are a few steps you can take to ensure you find a trustworthy general contractor.

Finding general contractors

The first, and perhaps most reliable, way to find a general contractor is to ask friends and family members for a recommendation. If you know anyone who has had major work done on their home, particularly if it's a similar job, ask them who they hired and if they were pleased with the result. You could also ask neighbors about who they've hired if you notice work being done on their house. Many remodeling contractors post signs in front of homes to advertise their services. As a general rule, it's rarely a good idea to hire a contractor who solicits work by going door to door.

If you are considering hiring a contractor without a personal recommendation, ask the contractor for references from past clients, and do as much background research on them as possible. Look for any complaints (or compliments) online to get a better idea of their track record. There are a number of websites specializing in connecting contractors with people or businesses who need work done. These sites may also allow past clients to submit their own reviews of the contractor. 

Budget

Before hiring a contractor, make sure you are both in agreement on the project's budget. It's normal for most contractors to charge clients a premium not only for the labor expenses and zoning expertise, but for acquiring the materials as well. Be as clear and concise as possible regarding what you'll be purchasing yourself and what you will be paying the contractor to complete. Homeowners may be able to find a better deal on raw materials when they purchase these directly, but they first need to be sure they aren't buying the wrong things.

Don't forget to discuss how the project will be finalized and what will be done about cleanup. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.

Prioritizing Safety

As previously mentioned, you need to make sure to follow any state and local regulations regarding construction work, which includes hiring a licensed or registered general contractor. Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.

Perhaps the best way to feel safe about a contractor and the work being done is to hire a contractor you trust. This is why relying on personal references from friends and family is so important, and will often provide a great deal of peace of mind. If you aren't able to obtain a reference, work to conduct extensive research on the contractor as well as the work you are hiring them to perform. This should bring everyone's expectations into alignment and result in a safe work environment.

Financial safety

Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work to be done and all costs are listed in the contract, right down to the most precise details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse. 

Once the specifics of the job are nailed down, be sure to discuss the payment schedule with the contractor. This is important because paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule with the contractor, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. It's a good idea to include this payment plan in the contract as well.

Finally, look into getting a lien release signed before work begins. If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. This can trigger a long legal process that may be frustrating. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered. A lien dispute could also be prevented by performing due diligence prior to picking a contractor, as any contractor with good credit and a long track record of satisfied clients should have no trouble paying for materials and labor once all contract conditions have been met.

Once work is underway, it's never a bad idea to check up on the progress of the job, either by staying in touch with the contractor over the phone or visiting the site in person. If you work with a trustworthy professional, it's probably best to keep your distance and allow everyone to stay busy. If you want to keep an eye on things, make sure workers wear the right safety gear and that everything looks to be moving along according to schedule. Finally, once work is finished and you are satisfied, be sure to thank your contractor and tell friends or family members about your experience.
