Endorsed Local Contractors (ELCs)

This endorsed local contractor (ELC) list is provided as a courtesy for our customers to help them connect with local area contractors.   

Rules of Engagement:  Homeowners should only pay for completed labor that meets a reasonable standard of quality as agreed upon by the homeowner and the contractor.  Homeowners should never pay for material without obtaining a receipt and having possession of the material.   If the contractor can not pay for the material and provide a receipt then the homeowner should find a new contractor or go pay for the materials and take them to the job site or have them delivered.  Homeowners should never write a big check at the beginning of a project.   This is the primary way homeowners are ripped off.   Politely decline and tell them you will find a new contractor so it is important that you don't sign a contract unless it states that they will be paid at the completion of the whole project.    Paying in stages is often a reason the project is delayed and opens the homeowner up to being ripped off or the contractor walking off the project mid-stream.   Customers should discuss at the initial meeting with any potential contractor their desired timeline for completion of the project, the expectation of the workmanship and when payment will occur.   Get Referrals, Referrals, Referrals, Referrals and more Referrals!

We Don't Make a Dime for these Referrals:  Our endorsed local contractors list is a service of Knox Rail Salvage and we do not participate financially in the installation process and, therefore, will not be liable for the work of any contractor on the list.  Ask for referrals for recent work and speak to other satisfied customers prior to hiring a contractor.
