Does any one have any pointers for doing clean up for a contractor who sells remodels? I just had my first one. I gave him a quote, which he liked. But...It took me longer than expected (lesson learned) and he mentioned a few things that were not done, which were not in my quote. I think we need some sort of a checklist so that we are on the same page as to what needs to be done. I will be going back yet a 3rd time because of bad communication (another lesson learned). he got a steal on this one, but the next one will be better priced for the work done. Is there any average price per sf, or anything I should be aware of. I'm thinking I should also have in writing on my quote that the job is to be inspected within 24 hours and comments made by the contractor if it is not satisfactory. Since other trades people may enter after me. Any advice, or contract examples, on this would be greatly appreciate. What's the going rate on window cleaning? He only wanted me to do the insides, I only charged $2 per window, I think that might be low. Thanks, Nccs, SE Michigan
A good home remodeling contractor can be a savior, and the good ones deserve to be found and supported. The not-so-good home remodeling contractor can be an absolute nightmare, with results that haunt the homeowner for years to come.

Whether you are doing a complete remodel, installing a new wood floor, sanding and painting the walls, its time to have the air ducts cleaned. Also during a home remodeling, remember to check and change your air filters often, it's during this time that large amounts of dust can be collected on the air filter.
