The owner Pat Major appears woefully under qualified to do a complete renovation.He gave us a bid to remodel our basement, including new Pella windows and doors. I was suspicious of his installation, so I called Pella corp. in Orland. They sent someone out, a certified inspector, who wrote a report stating that our warranty on the windows is voided. Why? Because of the inept installation by Pat Major. The report said the installation, particularly the insulation was not to Pella specifications and the result would probably be water damage. So, Pella recommended another contractor who removed the doors and window and reinstalled them to Pella specification. I soon terminated Remodelling Innovation. They also installed the wrong insulation in our ceiling. The contract called for one and a lower quality was installed, according Tto a home inspector I hired to check all of Mr. Major's work. Bottom line, he probably could handle drywall and painting, but when it gets too complicated, forget it. I recommend going to Angie's list. There are hundreds of qualified Contractors there.

Why did you not check Angie's list first if you feel that it gives true reviews for contractors? I don't believe any rating service is reliable. They all cherry pick and edit what is posted.

Who would want to call themselves four more years? There is something wrong upstairs with you.

I don't understand how anyone can afford to have to have major work done in this Obama economy. You are extremely fortunate for that. I can't afford gas for my car to get to work!

It is seriously hard to find a good local contractor or house painter in NL. No one wants the tough craftsman ship required work. I've had 3 come over, look at what I need, and I never hear from them again. I offered one local contractor enough work to keep him inside busy all winter. He never came back! <lol

There was one who was utterly professional & terrific... Miter Construction I think was their name. Jan was the guy. Sadly he passed away 2 years back.

Any one have a good "independent" local guy? Feel free to recommend them here. We all would appreciate it.
