About this pro
We hired Moore Contracting to add a drain filed, remove a side walk, re-poor the side walk and add a couple of cement slabs. In doing the project, our frond driveway was destroyed by the his equipment. The gravel delivered was dumped on the driveway and he used a small bob-cat to move the gravel around. Moore agreed to re-do the driveway he destroyed. In doing so, he was unable to follow a reasonable schedule and the work was not completed due to weather. We went all winter without a driveway. It was a mess. When spring rolled around, we could not get him to get the work done. He took our money and did not complete the work. I had to hire another contractor to complete the project. It was no doubt the only smart thing we did during the ordeal. The slab that he poured was already cracked and it looks terrible. It was a fail all the way around. We learned from the new contractor that Moore has tow other clients that he has left hanging in the very same manner. Lesson learned AGAIN> i should have done further research and checked references. In my opinion, Moore seems to have good intentions, he simply has no ability to run a business or follow thru on a project.Jun 1, 2016Verified
Exceptional preparation for the pour and the final outcome was extremely attractive. Jamin has an eye for detail and made many suggestions that made the final design more attractive from the curb. Excellent workmanship. I highly recommend Moores contracting.Aug 14, 2015Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?There is nothing simple about pricing construction projects. There are a few base rates that are more for reference than rule. Every job is different so it's nearly impossible to give accurate numbers without thorough research of all elements. Generally speaking it is usually best for both customer and contractor to agree on a cost plus contract for most jobs. Cost plus contracts benefit both parties, and usually a good contractor can get within a few percentage points of a final price on the initial estimate.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In my field every day is another lesson. New building products are constantly being developed, not to mention constant updates in the UBC (Uniform Building Code) and other agencies that govern the construction process.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?My dad was a contractor when I was a kid. He started taking me to work with him in the summer so I could earn some extra money. He also built our home from the ground up. It has been added onto and remodeled numerous time over the last 35 years and I have been helping out with that since I could bend a nail. These days I still bend the occasional nail, and hope to do it for 30 more years.
