My recommendation of Roberts Construction is iffy because we've gotten some good work done, but we've also had some problems that were only corrected because we were on top of things. First off, Jim Roberts, who is the owner, is an honestly nice person who takes time to go over things and explain options and prices. His prices are also quite reasonable, and he will price things "a la carte," depending on what you need. Those were two of the reasons we went with him for our kitchen remodel. The downside is that we've got an older house (1950) with a bunch of quirks that require some thinking on how to deal with them (wiring no longer to code, walls not square). Jim's crews, unfortunately, were not all up to the task. Some of his guys are really good and careful, but some are not, and the problems we've had to have re-done are not major, but have been kind of a pain in the rear. As a consequence, the job is taking much, much longer than it should have. Again, a general contractor is only as good as his crews and his subcontractors. If you've got a newer house and fairly straightforward job, I'd definitely consider Jim, but if you've got anything out of the ordinary, I'd consider looking elsewhere.
