On the contrary, some of us realtors are experienced builders and know more about houses then the average realtor. I suggest that an buyers should keep that in mind when choosing a realtor to represent them in the buying of any property.
As for a new metal roof. Any competent builder can add a pitched roof with engineered trusses and metal roofing.
I work with Denman and Assoc. 983-6014 they are a high end builder but I believe that you get what you pay for.
That is a bit of a trick question, because remodels are tricky because of unknown factors such as structural damage, mold, extensiveness of reworking electrical and plumbing, meeting code and of course the level of cost and quality of upgrades. The best thing to do is pick your options on the upgrades and get three bids.I had a client that planned for a conservative residential remodel at $25,000 and it stopped at $40,000. Get a reputable contractor and sub-contractors to help reduce the risks and costs.... more
I have had great and reasonable work from A 2 Z Roofing, Mike Scarborough, 7820 Enchanted Hills Blvd. He services Santa Fe. He is very busy, but definitely worth the wait and effort. You can also check him out on Angie's List

OMG, it always takes longer than usual - but that is WAY too long! One can build a whole house in less time. A major remodel should never take more than 9 months - and 3-6 is the usual span. You should not let this joker ruin your life. Even if it's more expensive consider firing your contractor and hiring a new one. I love Vincent Urioste. Call me and Ill give you his number. Mine is (505) 440-6293.
PS To anyone who is no experienced with home renovations: NEVER pay your contractor more than a 30% deposit up front! Never, Never, Never. Large jobs may be 20% up front and 20% every 2-3 weeks and/or at certain prescribed accomplishment intervals.... more
