Beware of Lowest Bid Contractors!!!!!!

New construction in Brevard, Hendersonville, and Asheville is Slowly picking up. We are bidding on several projects, unfortunately clients are getting bids from every contractor in the phone book. If you're building green, please call builders that "specialize" in green building. Builders that don't specialize have no idea what's involved in the certification process hence coming up with low estimates, when they figure out how much extra time and planning is involved, they will make up for it on your next change order. Believe me nine times out of ten, homeowners will change their mind or add something else, then the frustrated builder will get you. So, the moral of this story is to beware the lowest bidder that doesn't specialize in green building! The only exception to this rule is when the lowest bid comes from

Also Rember when selecting a building contractor to :

  • Talk to one of their previous clients.

  • Make sure their insurance is up to date. (Because of the economy many struggling builders have been forced to let their insurance lapse.)

  • Check them out at (the better business bureau)

  • Check their License Status at

Good luck!!! Call Ryan at 828-577-3472 if you have any questions.
