About Remodeling Contractor
Whether you are planning to build or remodel your home, there is a key role that you will need to play during the construction process, and that is that of a remodeling contractor. A general contractor, sub-contractor or prime contractor is in charge of the day-to-day management of a construction site, coordination of trades and vendors, and the dissemination of information to all involved parties during the course of the construction project. However, there is more to becoming a contractor than just paying the bills. There are certain qualities to look for, and it is also important to remember that contractors are just that - people.
Contractors are considered masters of their trade, which means that they should not be too easily fooled by "do-it-yourself" scams that abound in the construction world. Before considering any kind of do-it-yourself projects, you should first consult with an experienced general contractor who can help point you in the right direction. However, you should realize that there are some differences between contractors and remodeling contractors. Generally speaking, remodels are all about changing or improving the design of the property, whereas general contractors are more concerned with the plumbing, electrical and structural elements of the property. Therefore, if you want to change or improve something in the property, a general contractor is more likely to be the right choice.
If you have decided that you need to change the structure of the floor or the carpet in your living room because you want it to look more modern, then you may consider hiring a remodeling contractor instead of doing it yourself. Contractors have experience and the proper training to be able to carry out the kind of changes that you want. Although this may take longer, you will have better results and will not waste any time. In order to get the job done efficiently, it is very important that you know how to communicate effectively with a contractor. This will ensure that the project is carried out safely and efficiently.
Another advantage of having a remodeling contractor around is that you don't have to wait for a whole lot of change orders. If you are not a good estimate maker, then you might miss out on some big deals because of lack of proper communication. This means that you might miss out on saving some money and time as well. On the other hand, if you hire a contractor to handle the job, then there won't be any problems with estimating and communicating with clients. You can expect that the estimate will be accurate and you can also be sure that there won't be any delays in completing the work.
If you are working with a general contractor rather than a remodeling contractor, then you would be able to save money by managing your remodeling project yourself. This is because the remodeling contractor would be responsible for paying for materials, labor costs and even insurance on the project itself. This means that you could possibly save more money when you manage the remodeling project on your own.
Overall, both general contractors and remodeling contractors can help you get the job done. Just be sure that you take some time in making your decision. Look at all aspects and consider your budget first before you make a final decision. This way, you will be able to make the best decision possible.
The history of the community of Arden-Arcade is documented in the "Sacramento ALC Historical Study 82", Rancho Del Paso, Office of History, Sacramento Air Logistics Center, McClellan Air Force Base, California, March 1983, by Raymond Oliver. The first residents of what would become the Arden-Arcade area were the Nisenan of the Maidu tribe of Native Americans. The land was originally part of a Mexican land grant deeded to John Sutter, the Rancho del Paso grant was negotiated from the Mexican governor by John Sutter on August 10, 1843. Sutter then deeded the Rancho Del Paso to Eliab and Hiram Grimes and John Sinclair. Samuel Norris was the next owner of Rancho del Paso, then James Haggin. From 1862 to 1905, James Ben Ali Haggin managed the Rancho, where he became known for breeding race horses. One of the horses bred on the Rancho, Ben Ali, won the 12th Kentucky Derby in world record time 1886. To ship his horses, Haggin built a railroad spur from his northern paddocks (Approximately where today’s Hagginwood Golf Course is), toward the current day Union Pacific railroad tracks located northeast of the present-day Capitol City Freeway along the beginnings of Arcade Boulevard. On this site Haggin's staff built 24 barns with 64 stalls each plus some out buildings. It was here that he would ship his horses mostly to Kentucky, some eventually shipping around the world.
The name "Arden" may come from the Hebrew word for garden. But the most likely possibility is that Orlando Robertson, owner and developer after Haggin, was originally from Arden Hills, Minnesota. Near the site of Haggin's barns, off Arcade Boulevard, was an “arcade” of native oak trees. The remnants can still be seen, though some of the trees are dead stumps. In architecture an arcade is a number of arches supporting a wall, hence the second name, "Arcade".
Orlando Robertson was a land speculator who came to Sacramento after hearing about the exceptional lands of the Rancho Del Paso. He bought the Rancho in 1905 for $1.5 million for his Sacramento Colonization Company, then laid out the streets and developed the tracts for sale. Robertson chose street names that reflected the inventors of the period, Watt, Edison, Howe, Bell and so on. By 1916, and given the fertile soil and excellent supply of water, Robertson was able to sell the tracts to farming families, a large number of them newly off the boat Scandinavian immigrants. In fact the area around Gibbons Park was known as “Little Norway,” because of the many Norwegian families that settled there. Arden-Arcade and neighboring Carmichael were advertised as an excellent area for growing citrus, but olives, nuts and stone fruit were also farmed here. At one time, Arden-Arcade was the hop growing region of the world.
Among the oldest surviving buildings in the area are the Arden Middle School, built in 1914, and the Del Paso Country Club, from 1919, named for the original Rancho on which it was built. The first residential neighborhoods in the area were constructed in the 1920s and 1930s, as the city developed over the river, but the real building boom came at the end of WWII.
However, the real current face of Arden-Arcade was built between 1945 and 1970, and remains a fine representation of a middle-class mid-century modern community, with home developments by John Davis, Jere Strizek, and Randolph Parks. There are also large custom built developments dotted with homes and office complexes built by Carter Sparks, the Streng Brothers and John Harvey Carter. Arden-Arcade features multiple googie architectural structures as well.
