For most Americans, their home is their most valued — and valuable — possession. It stands to reason that great caution should be taken before entrusting a home to a contractor.
Many reasons exist to make a change to a home: a growing family, outdated bathrooms, an inadequate kitchen, universal design changes to allow staying in one's home longer in life, increasing the value of a home, or just a change in lifestyle.
With changes, comes the need for careful decisions. In the past decade, state laws have helped clear the field of shady contractors. The latest Gallup Poll didn't list contractors in the top least trusted professionals, but there was a time when contractors were on that annual list. (If you are wondering, car sales people and members of congress are now the least trusted.)
Thankfully, a lot has changed. With the increased use of the Internet, homeowners have become wiser, know what questions to ask, use social media to read reviews, and are able to review a contractor's work before even calling.
Jim Lufkin and Rick Mitchell invite you to review what their satisfied homeowners have to say about working with them, to view the many projects completed over the years, and to ask any questions that may help understand how L&M Construction takes care of each and every home as if it were their own.
When you are ready for more information, please call Jim or Rick at 603.329.5099 and set up an on-site meeting to discuss your needs. They look forward to meeting you.
