You and Your Contractor: Business Partners

Home builders and remodelers can fill your house with splendid amenities and build the home of your dreams. But first you must establish a business partnership with the right contractor. Make certain you and your contractor can agree on a method for reaching a mutual goal — your ideal

house! Do your homework before hiring a contractor. If you take the following steps, you will be likely to maintain a good working relationship with your contractor for the duration of the building or remodeling process. When looking to hire a contractor, you should:

Ask for referrals. Call your local home builders association, which can give you lists of its members who do the kind of work you need done. Ask your neighbors and friends for names of contractors with whom they have worked. And for new homes, check out newspaper ads for the types and price ranges of homes being built in your area. Look for a contractor who has done projects similar to yours. Ask prospective contractors for a tentative job schedule. Contractors cannot always determine the exact amount of time they will need to complete projects because they cannot control some factors such as weather or back-ordered building materials. But

they can usually give you a rough estimate. Talk about change orders. Sometime during the building or remodeling process you might want to change your order. Ask prospective contractors the procedure they use for placing change orders. Most change orders include a description of the change, cost implications and resulting schedule delays. Ask for a written estimate of the work to be done based on a set of plans and specifications. If you compare your estimate with another, be sure each one is based on the same set of plans and specifications. You can’t ef-

fectively compare estimates from contractors who plan to use different brands of building materials. If a contractor suggests deviations, ask him or her to present those ideas as options. Let contractors know you are not only interested in the lowest bid. Trust your instincts. If you take the proper steps and ask the right questions, you will develop a sense of which contractor is best suited to complete your project. Meet with each prospective contractor one-on-one to discuss what you want done. Ask the contractor to explain how the project

would progress. Choose a contractor who acts professionally and takes the job seriously. After you’ve selected your contractor, you will need to sign a written contract. Most contract agreements include: job specifications; lists of necessary materials (including brand names, colors, sizes etc.); final cost estimates; a payment schedule; a change-order clause; and estimated start and completion dates. After you select your contractor sit back, relax and watch your dreams turn into reality. For more information, contact the Moore County Home Builders Association at 910-944-2992 or visit

Fore Properties hosted a Broker lunch at 123 James Creek Rd. this past Tuesday to show off this beautiful renovation that is now up for sale and donated $5.00 per attending broker to the Sandhills Classical Christian School that the sellers children attend. Mark Parson of Mark Wesley Parson Inc, Travis Green of Legacy Builders and Francy Thompson of Total Designs Solutions worked in tandem over the last two years to add over 1200 sq.' to this home and create an inside and outdoor environment on this .82 acre lot to rival new construction. To the sellers credit they had all prelisting inspections conducted; addressed any small items that came up, had the home restaged and priced it ahead of the market curve. Kudos to proactive sellers!! The food was brought in from Neomode's in Raleigh early that morning and was almost as big a hit as the home itself! Many area brokers attended and gave rave reviews for 123 James Creek Rd.

Member Firm

Mark Parson of Mark Wesley Parson, Inc, Francy Thompson of Total Design Solutions and Travis Green of Legacy Builders were the architects of the renovation and remodel.

Fun, surprising cost-saving home improvements



(ARA) - Who wouldn't like to save money on utility bills this winter? But have you ever considered some of the more common energy-efficient home improvements - like insulating your hot water heater or replacing incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescents - and thought "dullsville"? Sometimes the act of saving money just isn't fun enough on its own. Fortunately, you can make home improvements that will trim your utility bills and boost your home's appeal at the same time. Here are four fun home improvements that are surprisingly energy efficient as well: 1. Buy a new dishwasher - Or clothes

washer. Older appliances were not only built to be less energy efficient, they can lose what little efficiency they had as they age. If your appliances are more than 10 years old, they likely use more energy and water than newer models, especially new models that are Energy Star qualified. Dishwashers purchased before 1994 use an additional 10 gallons or more of water per cycle than a new Energy Star qualified model, according to And if you don't have a dishwasher at all, don't think of buying one as just a luxury. Energy Star says you'll save 5,000 gallons of water and knock $40

Venting skylights provide decorating flair with providing natural light and passive ventilation.

per year off your utility bills if you give up washing dishes by hand - not to mention 230 hours of your time. 2. Beautify your bathroom - Kitchens and baths sell homes, but they're also the rooms where the most water gets used and wasted. Old fixtures and faucets are among the top waterwasting culprits in a home. You can conserve water by turning off the tap when you brush your teeth, but that water savings goes down the drain if the toilet runs constantly when you leave the room. Replacing leaky fixtures can reap significant water savings. Energy Star says a leaky faucet can waste gallons of water. Just one drip per second can waste up to 1,661 gallons of water in a year, according to You can also conserve water by installing a low-flow showerhead, which can save you as much as 5 gallons of water during a 10minute shower. Many manufacturers now offer stylish, water-efficient faucets and showerheads.


A venting skylight in the bath not only provides natural light and passive ventilation but affords privacy.

3. Let the sun shine in - A venting skylight is a fun way to fill your home with nourishing natural light and passive ventilation, but did you know it's also energy efficient? Installing a venting skylight can help you lower your electric bill by reducing your dependency on artificial light and electric fans. Natural light has been tied to a host of health benefits, including improving mood. A skylight not only enhances the energy efficiency of your home, it adds decorating flair and could make you feel better about living there. They're also rela-

tively low-cost when it comes to "luxury" home improvements. You can get an Energy Star qualified "No Leak Skylight" from Velux for about $1,000 per unit for a remote-controlled electric venting model that closes automatically should it rain. Log on to to find a local installer for a customized cost estimate. 4. Install a fireplace Zone heating the areas of your home where you spend the most time can reduce your home heating bill by 20 to 40 percent, according to the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Associa-

tion. Installing an energy-efficient fireplace or a stove is a great, appealing way to zone heat the rooms you use the most. What's more, this type of heating can be "greener," if you use renewable fuels like cord wood, pellets or other plant-derived materials in your high-efficiency stove or fireplace. As for the fun quotient, it's hard to top a fireplace for a home improvement that adds warmth and appeal to a room. Saving money can be doubly exciting, when you opt for energy-efficient home improvements that also enhance enjoyment of your home.
