If you want healthy hair, Lorie is your girl!

My hair has been damaged over the course of my stay in beautiful Seattle, WA. Finding the RIGHT stylist has not come at a cost, I'll tell you that. The breakage had become unbearable! As I looked for a hair stylist in Seattle, one of my co-workers with marvelous hair referred me to Lorie and her hair salon. Lorie is the consummate professional. She reads you like a book! If you're tired, she's lets you rest (after asking and bring you nice warm glass of tea). If you're engaged and up for a chat, she's down for that too. But, she's no chatty cathy (i.e., annoying). Seriously, it's refreshing to have an intelligent, thought-provoking conversation with your stylist! As for my hair, it is in the best health EVER. I've been getting relaxers (straighteners) for 17 years and this is the first time I can honestly say that it is at its healthiest. It is strong, healthy and just fab. What I love about Lorie is the fact that she does't just do a great job, she EDUCATES you on how to maintain your hair and KEEP it in great condition. It's one thing to send me out looking great, but TEACH me how to keep it that way. I'm not sure if she has room for more clients, but I am immensely happy that I got in the door as I wouldn't go anywhere else! I know it's selfish, but oh well! I've got the best stylist in Seattle. Thanks Lorie!

Some dummy T-Boned my car and his insurance company sent me to another auto body shop - well after stopping by and getting the overall impression that those folks didn't really care about what was in my best interests - i asked around and some of my friends recommended this bodyshop - i checked yelp and confirmed a lack of deuschbaggery called and scheduled the repair. The auto service guy (john?) explained that the car is likely to have additional damage - they took the car in and sure enough my car had more damage than the other Insurance company body shop quoted for. Accucraft contacted the insurance company - they then TOTALED!! my vehicle!! even though the shop attempted to work out an arrangement with them. Long story short - The insurance company killed my BMW and wanted to pay me crap for it. The lovely gents @ AccuCraft Collision explained the process, I negotiated a settlement with the insurance company & kept the car (great car!) Accucraft then used the same money the insurance company paid me - fixed the related damage then went and took care of a whole bunch of other smaller cosmetic stuff while they were at it FOR FREE!. I don't know about a whole bunch of automotive repair facilities - but overall they all seem to suck and steal money. These guys don't. Then end.

I've been going to Amy's Hair ...

I've been going to Amy's Hair Salon for almost two years and have done the Yuko Hair Straightening system for many years. I thought that was great until Amy suggested the new Zerran Reform System. Zerran Reform is the greatest! It has straightened my hair but still left some body in it, and it looks so natural! With the Yuko system, my hair was so flat for weeks that it felt like if just stuck to my head. With Reform, my hair is just as straight, but a little natural body look and shine. Amy does an excellent job with Reform and I would highly recommend the Reform system over Yuko if you want just a little bounce and body, not totally flat on your head look. Reform uses natural products and is also a permanent hair straightening method, with no slight after smell like you would get from the Yuko method. As a Yuko customer for years, I am now switching to Reform for a more natural straightening, both in look, feel, and shine. I highly recommend Amy's Hair Salon and Reform - both are in a class above others!

I own a 1968 Olds Cutlass - my pride and joy. After a mishap with a telephone pole (they're tricky at night . . .ninja-like), I needed some front end work. Unfortunately, I don't have it insured for collision, so this would be out of pocket expenses. But it was nothing huge, a dented fender needing some bondo and paint and a bumper that had to be pulled out. I estimated the labor to be around $600 and parts (paint) about $75. I took it to several body shops (mostly insurance repair joints) and four flat out refused to do the work without giving me a quote. I couldn't believe it - they were turning down a job because they could make more money overcharging some insurance company. I also took the car to the shop down the street - who quoted me a price of $1,400 to maybe $5,000 (!!!). The last place I checked out was Roosevelt Auto Body. The owner, Dustin McLaughlin, is the nice guy on the planet. They did a great job, and the best part - only charged me $400. Do yourselves a favor - go here first.

Jack is the BEST

I was the unsure, indecisive, traumatized hair freak that every hair dresser must hate. I read a few good reviews online and made an appointment for the next day. I didnt go to Hair By Joey with the 170+ great reviews, crazy prices, and seemed to have complaints about a phone stuck to his ear. I chose Jack's salon, which is only a couple blocks from my house in Lake City with only a few good reviews. That was the best decision I have made all year. Jack gave me the best hair cut I have ever had in my life. My step mom owned a hair salon and did my hair until she retired, since then I have had more than a few bad hair people that sent me out the door with a midlife crisis "school mom" hair cut and color. I wanted bold. Jack gave me bold. I never knew sleek, sexy hair could exist on my head. Now it does.. Plus, it's PINK! I love it. I wish I could post a picture. Jack, you may not be a man of many words, but you are a true pro.. Thank you very much. P.S. My boyfriend loves it.

5-Star Salon - Caoba

My daughter, a Nordstrom cosmetic's employee told me about a customer with a great hair style. The customer highly recommended Jack at Caoba Hair Salon. My daughter went to Jack and he did a fabulous cut on her too. I have very thick, curly/wavy, dark brown hair and most stylists are intimidated by it. It's difficult to cut and style and stylists rarely ever want to style it. Most of the time I come out with a frizzy, messy look that I don't like. When I went to Jack for the first time about 6 months ago, he was awesome! I'm very serious. He gave me the best haircut and color I've ever had. I actually have been thinking I don't want anyone else to know about him--my little secret! He knows what he's doing. My latest hightlights are awesome. My first complement was "your hair looks so sexy". oh, and the way he styles it after the cut!!! I don't have to do a thing to it for two days and it looks beautiful. Anyway, Jack is the best! Thank you Jack! LB

I very highly recommend Rajpau...

I very highly recommend Rajpaul Dhiman of Integra Hair Design to both Seattlelites and visitors to Seattle alike. I've had my hair cut and styled in some of the best hair salons in London, costing 4x as much, but none have ever done such a great job on my hair as when Rajpaul styled my hair. I've never received so many compliments from my friends in London. Whatsmore, Rajpaul is an extremely nice and pleasant guy, and he isn't happy unless you're happy. Most people have their hair cut/styled before they go on a trip. For my next trip over to the USA, I'm waiting until I get there. I've even already booked my next appointment with Rajpaul for the day after I arrive. So go on then people, what are you waiting for? Pick up that phone and book an appointment with Rajpaul. You don't know what you're missing until you do, and you won't be disappointed. You'll be thrilled that you did when you see the end result! I know I was :)

Recently had some car repair done here after I backed into a cement pole (doh!). When I went for my estimate they were very nice and also were able to complete it during my lunch break. The staff were very friendly. After collecting several estimates, I decided to schedule the work at this shop. I picked a week for the repair to occur. Two weeks before the work was scheduled they called me to follow-up on the insurance end of the situation. This was my first time utilizing my insurance, and the staff at this body shop was able to tell me exactly what I needed to do and were very helpful! They knew more about what to do than my insurance agent and helped me connect with the claims department (which my agent also failed to do). While the work was being done I was called for an update just as I had requested and the work was finished on time and looks great!

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.
