Helpful Links and Ideas

Researching any major decision can be time consuming and stress full. We've included some resources here that you may find helpful.

Our rule of thumb for choosing contractors: If they can't provide proven referrals to work done in the area of your project, they want to do cash jobs only, don't get permits (or prove that they aren't needed), don't want any written records of the project, be cautious. This is our opinion.
