Hi Ken, Please accept our gratitude to you and your entire team for their awesome professionalism and quality of work completed at our residence.  Your entire team of Jason, Nate, and Agustin were always punctual and focused their efforts on workmanship with an eye for detail.  We are very pleased with the beauty, elegance, and quality of the changes to our home.

 Working with your team was indeed a pleasure in every aspect of this home project, from the design, construction and painting stages that ended with a completion date exactly as you promised.  Our budget was not compromised and every workmanship detail provided us the confidence and assurance that we picked the right company for our home improvement. We entrusted our money and the beauty of our home in your capable hands and you delivered with precision that exceeded our expectations!

 

Warmest Regards,

FIVE signs it’s time to break up with your contractor:

FIVE signs it’s time to break up with your contractor:

1)      NO CONTRACT: Before starting any project be sure to have a signed contract in place… If a contractor begins your project without one it’s very likely your understanding of what was to be performed may not be completed as expected.

2)      MISSED PROJECT COMPLETION DATES: Before you begin your project always be sure to get in writing your start and completion dates so that a common goal is set and achieved.

3)      COST OVER RUNS: All aspects of your project should be clearly defined with their associated cost.  If there are unknown aspects hidden within walls as an example your contractor should express what risk and cost could be if unforeseen setbacks may be discovered.

4)      PERSONALITY CONFLICTS: If your contractor isn’t respectful of you or your property it may be in your best interest to terminate relation before your experience goes downhill too quickly. At the end of your project you both should feel good about your relation and want to do business together again.

5)      CONTRACT VIOLATION: Change orders are certainly acceptable providing they are agreed upon by both parties but if the work begins to stray away from what was agreed without verbal or written consent then it may be time to terminate relation.  All Change Orders should be noted on contract and the price agreed in writing before commencing forward.

“Here at Appleton Renovations we respect and value your trust in us… Contracts are always in place prior to commencing work, every project is started on time and finished on time,  All cost and aspects are clearly defined within our contracts.  We are a family operated and owed small business serving your community since 2003, your satisfaction is always our number one objective!”

“Appleton Renovations, you guys are incredible… The Fireplace BuiltIn Entertainment Center exceeded our expectations.  The Skype Video Conference system on our 65” HDTV is amazing, we speak to our family in New Zealand all the time.  We will have you back soon for our next project.”
