I am a single mother. I knew nothing about construction, but, my kitchen was in disrepair. I was extremely nervous about the process. Mike, Cody, Ken and Kimberly made our kitchen the family focal point it should be. I was under my budget and still got everything I needed.

Sublime Custom Stone
Ashley N. rated

I work at Presa Community Center with 120 kids from ages 5 - 13. Sublime Custom Stone made a very generous donation of a long piece of limestone for use to make an outdoor shuffleboard for our kids. The kids love it and Sublime Custom Stone is a wonderful place owned by people who believe in supporting their community. Thanks so much to Greg, the owner, his staff and Sublime Custom Stone. This new outdoor shuffleboard (like indoor tables but weather proof for outside) is the kids favorite. It stays occupied from the time they get there to the time they leave each afternoon. We have to really stay on them to quit and come inside because their parents are there to pick them up. We've had many tournaments and they act like they won the lotto. Check out our Facebook page: Presa Community Center 4 Youth Program to see pictures. The folks at Sublime Custom stone deserve a huge "Thank You" for supporting the kids in the San Antonio Community.

Compass Restorations
Christine H. rated

My husband and I hired Compass Restoration to do a roof replacement on our home. From the first interaction I had with them I knew we were in good hands. Anthony Ortiz was our project manager and I felt like he really addressed the needs that we had. Their pricing was very fair and the level of service was top notch. The crew showed up on time and worked at a fast pace to ensure that the job would be completed in one day. Anthony showed up at the beginning of the day to check in on the progress and then again at the end of the day to do a walk through and inspection of the work. I am very happy with the finished product and would not hesitate to hire them again for any general contracting needs I might have in the future. You can go wrong with great service at a great price.

The Cabinet Wizard
Victor T. rated

My sincere compliments to Brad, Dawn and their professional crew. I was very lucky to have found him here in SA. Not only was his price lower than the competition, but the quality of materials used to reface our aging kitchen were superior as compared to materials we saw elsewhere. Our large, outdated kitchen was completely refaced in just three days and today looks like a million bucks. Not only did he reface the dull finish of our existing kitchen, but he added larger cabinet doors, an impressive Lazy Susan, and additional crown molding. The modern and elegant look of our "new" kitchen gives the whole house a more expensive and stylish feel. I wholeheartedly recommend Cabinet Wizard for kitchen refacing/upgrades. You won't be disappointed. Victor Tronco

First Place Windows
carterpr rated

We got 3 bids and First Place Windows was superior in all respects. Larry Bindel explained everything about the windows in great detail. My wife and I were impressed with not only the windows but the presentation that he gave. He knows windows. We would have chosen First Place Windows regardless of price. They are that good. There were 13 windows that were replaced. They arrived on time and were installed quickly. We are so impressed with the new glass technology that really reduced the heat coming into our home. We also had 2 skylights replaced with their new sky windows that have the same heat reducing technology. We have noticed a big difference.We would recommend First Place Windows to anyone who needs new windows or skylights.

First Place Windows

The Best deal going !!!

Larry and his crew were very efficient and complete. We are super happy with our new windows and the quality and professionalism that we received. Last year in the winter, we had to close our mini blinds and our heavy drapes to keep the cold from coming into the house. This has been the coldest weather San Antonio has seen in a long time and we enjoyed keeping the drapes and blinds open & looking out the windows and staying warm inside. I would definately recommend First Place Windows for any window job. The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because the manufacturer messed up and sent the wrong size for one of the windows.

Michael worked from photograph...

Michael worked from photographs sent via email and drawings to create a timeless piece of art to compliment the custom cabinetry in our hill country home. His genius is in design form and color. He literally recreated the vista from our front porch and seamlessly incorporated the mural of stained glass in a continuous pattern on four doors. The effect is stunning, yet not over the top. Michael is professional, meticulous, and a uniquely talented artist. He is attentive to the precision during installation and masterful with unexpected detail. Great work, nice guy!

fantastic remodel!!

We used Eddie Real GCS to remodel our house back in nov 07. We wanted new carpets upstairs, woodflooring in living, dining and entry, and tile in the kitchen,bathroom floors and shower stalls. They also did our countertops and painted the entire inside of the house. They did all this for less than other places where trying to charge without countertops or paint. Everyone was nice and always showed up when they were expected. It took a little over 2 weeks. And we are extremely HAPPY! I am glad they were reffered to us.

Good job done by Instyle.I was referred to this business by a friend. I was remodeling my kitchen and have checked several places including homedepot before I came to Instyle. They have the very best prices. Plus, the installers were very friendly and professional. I am really pleased with my kitchen. My only complaint is that they should have told me the granite need to be sealed right after installation. I got a stain on my granite and did not go away until a couple of days later.

Great Service After The SaleFirst Place Windows installed the windows on our home, which we love but after having them for almost two years, they replaced a sash as part of a warranty issue. There were no additional charges and it was so easy. They ordered the whole sash and one was easily popped out and the other one popped in to replace it. These windows are great!!Thank you First Place Windows for standing behi\\nd your product!!!

After searching several granite places in San Antonio, stopped in to InStyle and spoke to Daniel Li about replacing cabinets/countertop in my kitchen. Daniel and his staff were very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful to me since having this work done was new to me. Their work changed the entire look of my kitchen and was done in a very timely manner and at a reasonable cost. I would definitely use them again.

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.
