Thank you for visiting CREATESPACE, a publishing division of Amazon.com! This particular book was written to help homeowners successfully navigate the somewhat murky waters of hiring contractors for their home improvements. During challenging economic times , there is an even greater risk of unscrupulous tactics to mislead homeowners to sign contracts that over promise and under deliver. This book will give you practical suggestions on how to protect yourself, how to find quality contractors, how to lower the cost of any project, how to manage the process and how to achieve the quality results you want in the first place. Getting high quality work done for reasonable prices is precisely how to add real value to your home and avoid headaches. This book is written by a successful general contractor and will help you approach any sized project like a pro. Today, more than ever, your money needs to go as far as it can. This may seem like a daunting concept, if you're not a veteran construction "insider." We'll explore the "insider's" perspective of successful General Contracting and dispel any mysteries about it in a hurry in practical language that any homeowner can easily understand. We'll cover exactly how to:* Size up a project* Estimate a realistic budget* Understand exactly how to hire only the best subcontractors* How to negotiate the best price with those subcontractors* How to manage them* How to pay them * How to keep everything effectively on trackChapters include: Preface A note from the author1 Should you trust a General Contractor?2 What does a competent GC do and why should I think like one?3 How much do things really cost? 4 I have a project in mind. Where do I start?5 How do I find the right subcontractors in terms of competence and price?6 How should I pay the subcontractors?7 What is the typical chronology of the construction process? 8 How do I estimate the time to do the whole job?9 How do I check the quality of the work? 10 What are some issues to be aware of when making finish selections? 11 What about appliances? 12 What if I just want to hire a General Contractor? How do I pick the right one and not get taken for a ride?13 What are some common mistakes to avoid on the road to achieving excellence?We'll also discuss how to protect your project from going over budget and the critical decisions that need to be made prior to even starting which so many people overlook, to their peril. In the end, you'll be ready to manage your own project, or if you choose, hire the very best General Contractor. You'll have a much more informed perspective of what a good General Contractor does in any successful renovation or new construction project and be able to easily distinguish the competent ones from the rest.

Odd though it may be, a mechanics lien has little to do with auto mechanics. Instead, it involves builders. Contractors and subcontractors, materials suppliers and equipment suppliers -- these are the folks who use mechanics liens.A mechanics lien enables workers to collect debts owed for work or materials they've contributed to a project. By making a legal claim on the real estate of an owner, the lien ensures that workers don't leave a project empty-handed if the owner refuses payment. Consequently, it's important that both laborers and owners understand the ins and outs of these liens.Whether a reader is a general contractor, a carpenter, a lumber supplier or simply a diehard fan of home improvement projects, Everybody's Guide to Mechanics' Liens is the place to go for strategies and answers.The book does not cover public property owners and publicly-funded projects.
