Absolutely amazing! James and his team went out of his way to help us out on short notice. I can’t thank them enough. They did a fantastic job. I would recommend them to anyone.
With the unprecedented growth in the country, and especially in the southwest, hundreds and even thousands of “would-be” contractors have appeared. People who may have worked as a laborer or a framer for a short period of time decide that they are ready to start their own business. In spite of the fact that they lack sufficient capital and experience, they print up flyers, distribute business cards and place an ad in the yellow pages.
In an attempt to get “the best price”, the unsuspecting customer calls the number listed on the flyer or in the ad and asked for a bid. Often, such operations are run out of a mail drop or on an answering machine, but someone usually calls the customer back. When you get the bid, you are really pleased at how much this person / company says they can save you. You may even see “licensed, bonded and insured” on the business card or in the ad. Then the story begins. The contractor tells you he is going to need a large portion of the money up front. He may say he needs it to purchase materials, or to pay workers for another job where the property owner is slow to pay. He may even tell you about the unexpected medical bills he had to pay for a sick child (that he really doesn’t have), in hopes of gaining your sympathy.
At first things may seem fine. In a day or two a worker shows up and starts measuring, or a small load of material is delivered to the job site. Then the excuses begin. After a week has passed, with no work being done, you call your unlicensed contractor. All you get is a recorded message, so you leave a message, politely requesting a return phone call. Several more days passed, with no response, so you call and leave another message, not as polite as the first. When the contractor does call, he is very apologetic and tells you about some catastrophe involving either his truck, his family, his help or another job he just had to complete. He promises to get right on your job the next day. A week later he still hasn’t shown up, or he does show up and says he needs more money.
Sound ridiculous? Well it happens every day, often with the consumer losing hundreds or even thousands of dollars. You, as the property owner have little recourse other than to pursue the matter in court.
Hiring a licensed contractor offers many additional protections to the property owner, especially regarding residential property. First of all, a contractor can not obtain a license without possessing a minimum amount of experience and must pass a business management test. The applicant also may be subjected to a criminal history background check, and must not have any unresolved contracting complaints outstanding.
Should you experience the above problems with licensed contractor, you as a residential property owner have significant protections not available to persons utilizing an unlicensed contractor. Among them is the ability to file a complaint against the contractor’s license, in most cases, for a period of two years from the date of occupancy or date the last work was performed. This is your guarantee should the workmanship be below standard or in violation of existing codes.
Under certain conditions, you may also be eligible to apply to the residential contractors’ recovery fund and receive up to thirty thousand dollars to have the work corrected or completed. Each licensed contractor is covered for up to $200,000.00 to a maximum of $30,000.00 per residential property owner, on a first come, first serve basis upon filing a complete claim. Keeping detailed records of your contract, checks or other forms of payment will speed the processing of your claim, should the need arise.
For more detailed information, you may contact the Residential Contractors’ Recovery Fund in Maricopa County Monday through Friday during regular business hours at 1 (602) 542-1525 or from elsewhere in the state at 1 1-877-MY AZROC (1-877-692-9762), toll free. These protections are in addition to other remedies available through the courts. Thank you.

Efflorescenceis a crystalline deposit, usually white, that may develop on the surfaces of masonry or concrete construction. Often it appears just after the structure is completed when the owner, the builder, and the architect are most concerned with the appearance of the new structure, Although unattractive, in general, efflorescence is harmless. However, deposits can occur within the surface pores of the material causing expansion that may disrupt the surface.
A combination of circumstances causes efflorescence. First, there must be soluble salts in the material, Second, there must be moisture to pick up the soluble salts and carry them to the surface. Third, evaporation or hydrostatic pressure must cause the solution to move. If any one of these conditions is eliminated, efflorescence will not occur.
All masonry and concrete materials are susceptible to efflorescence. Water soluble salts that appear in chemical analyses as only a few tenths of one percent are sufficient to faults efflorescence when leached out and concentrated at some point on the surface. The amount and character of the deposits vary according to the nature of the soluble materials and the atmospheric conditions. Efflorescence is particularly affected by temperature, humidity, and wind. In the summer, even after long rainy periods, moisture evaporates so quickly that comparatively small amounts of salt are brought to the surface. Usually efflorescence is more common in the winter when a slower rate of evaporation allows migration of salts toe the surface. With the passage of time, efflorescence becomes lighter and less extensive unless there is an external source of salts Light colored surfaces show the deposits much less than darker shades.
Efflorescence producing salts are usually sulfates of sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron (ferrous); carbonates of sodium, potassium, and calcium, or sodium bicarbonate or silicate. However, almost any soluble salt that finds its way into the material may appear as efflorescence, consequently chlorides, nitrates, and salts of vanadium, chromium, molybdenum, and others are occasionally found, Chloride salts are highly soluble in water, so the first rain will often wash them off.

Patches usually appear darker than the surrounding concrete. Therefore, some white cement should be mixed in the patching mortar or concrete where appearance is important. Samples should be applied in an inconspicuous location, perhaps a stem wall foundation several days in advance to determine the most suitable proportions of white and gray cements. Steel troweling should be avoided since this makes the match appear dark in color.
The mortar should be mixed as stiff as practicable, using 1 part portland cement to 2.5 parts sand, just enough water to form a ball when the mortar is squeezed gently in the hand and 2 other ingredients I will keep secret. After the cavity has been cleaned of oil and loose material and kept damp for several hours, the mortar should be tamped into place in 1/2 thick layers. Vigorous tamping and adequate curing will ensure good bond and minimum shrinkage of the patch. jb.
