Are there any good contractors left?
I have dealt with contractors and service people for 54 years and I know how difficult it is to get service, quality and professionalism done in a decent timeline for a price that is in my budget.
This time, was no different. For the first time, I was looking for a landscaper who could do a great job on the front yard of my small property. I wanted to upscale my curb appeal.
I called 5 companies who never returned my calls, One company referred to me took two and a half weeks to call me. Two appointments where made but where no shows, with no sorry calls or apologizes. I continued to work on the yard thinking I may have to do this myself. I wanted stone walls with armour or quarry stone and unilock brick. Time was marching on, and I was getting increasingly aggravated.
I remembered the nieghbour across the street had their yard done about 2 years ago. I liked the quality of the work. I got the number, and Taylor was at my door 2 days later, on time, even after a 2 hour drive from Concord, through rush hour for our appointment.
After conversation and mutual suggestions he gave me a verbal estimated that fit my budget and a week later was confirmed by email. I signed the contract paid my deposit and I was on my way.
Landscaping, is totally, dependent on the weather and projects generally are done sequentially, with some alteration for small projects. So, patience is necessary especially when you have found the right team. Approximately, one month later, after more rain, a crew of 4 arrived at my door and in one day did this amazing job on my front yard. The workmanship was spot on, with an eye for detail and a noticeable pride in their work. The company owner Ofer was present, on-site for a time and the entire crew lead by foreman Dwight, worked steadily with an air of enthusiastic playfulness joking with each other all the while and were professional all the way through to clean-up.
Everyone, family and nieghbours are thrilled with the results and some have taken down the number for future projects.
This was my experience with Land-Con and mine alone. I recommend this company from this experience. With perseverance and some luck I managed to steer myself to this company and thankfully their professionalism saved my summer.
