Anthony James Construction
General Contractors
"Anthony James Construction did a fantastic job on a recent renovation/addition to our home. We were impressed by the professionalism, dedication, and attention to detail that Anthony and his team brought to our project. What we feared would be a stressful experience turned out to be an enjoyable one. Though we had a vision of what we hoped our home would be, it was Anthony's suggestions that truly made a difference. He turned our "tired" house into a beautiful home that we hope to enjoy for many years. All members of the Anthony James team were knowledgeable, professional, and a pleasure to work with. We were kept informed about every step of the project. Our budget was respected, and the project was completed sooner than we had expected. Their attention to detail was amazing. They frequently saw things that we had missed, made suggestions, and made necessary changes. Anthony James Construction did an outstanding job for us. We do not believe we would have had the same experience with any other builder. We are happy to give this company our highest recommendation."
- Arlene Engel
The Remodeling Company
General Contractors
"My husband and I bought a house about 20 years old. The bones were solid but it needed a lot of updating. We needed a company that understood our goal, listened to our needs, respected our budget and finished the work on time. They did it all! The project included: -Wainscoting throughout dining room & foyer - Came out STUNNING! -Reworking the fireplace mantle to fit our Plasma - Great carpentry work and installation of new stone around the fireplace -Sanded the floors and used a water based finish - Beautiful -Added a wall and door to an open den that is now my husband's very private office - He's in heaven -Replaced all the hardware and lighting fixtures - This made a huge difference -Wired the house for sound and installed Sonos Music System -New carpeting in all bedrooms and stairs -Painted all the interior walls All these small projects transformed our home. Our house no longer looks 20 years old. We could have easily had another contractor in our house recommending a lot more work to accomplish what we needed and wanted. The Remodeling Company helped us make great decisions. Plus, working with them was a sincere pleasure! The guys were always on time, courteous, and always cleaned up when they were done for the day. The Remodeling Company exceed our expectations, for sure! They made certain our project was hassle free and seamless. I can not say that for other contractors we have hired. Our project was completed as promised..ON TIME and ON BUDGET and WE LOVE IT!"

What is a general contractor?


General, or construction contractors, are often known as project managers. They oversee the entire remodeling or new home construction project and facilitate all day-to-day tasks that move it toward completion. A general building contractor will work with your architect to review plan as you build a house and ensure everything is in place before work is started as well as arrange for permits and necessary inspections. While good local home improvement contractors will have the skills to handle certain tasks onsite, such as carpentry, he or she is also responsible for hiring subcontractors for the majority of jobs, such as electrical work, painting or plumbing. In addition, the general contractor should be on-site regularly to inspect the progress and resolve issues. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of general contractors: Architects & Building Designers, Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Kitchen & Bath Designers, Specialty Contractors.

Home remodeling contractors are a must for successful completion of a renovation. Because of this, it's essential that you do your homework before deciding on the right general contractor as you remodel or build a house. Inspect bids carefully. Was it ready when the contractor promised it? Was the bid for building a home unusually high or low? Each of these things can be very telling: A late bid may reflect timing standards, and an off-the-mark bid could be code for a pricey premium or a deliberate underbid to score the remodeling job. You should call references, carefully read reviews and visit completed projects to see if they’re what you expect for your job. Once you do secure your local contractors, read the contract very carefully to be sure everyone is on the same page.

Questions to ask prospective general contractors:


  • How long have you been in the business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • What qualities do you look for in your subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Are you licensed and insured?
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • What happens when costs exceed budget, whether due to materials or labor pricing changes? What about changes made by the client or by the professionals — what kinds of situations would cause those costs to be incurred?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can your job get done?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
