How'd it go? HORRIBLY!!!! First they didn't want to fix anything once convinced to fix it they wanted to just treat the mold with bleach. We insisted they use a certified mold removal company, they did (that company was great). Then the real problems occurred.
They hire sub-contractors and never come to site to be sure it's done correctly. They installed drywall with no insulation in every location so had to remove the drywall and do it again, even behind the bathtub. They said they insulated the pantry, but it is easily a 10 degree temperature difference from the kitchen. When they insulated the attic they wanted to get less than code requirements insulation we insisted they meet or bet the requirements. They even had to do that twice since one of the workers swept mold particles and then used that same broom to "spread" the insulation around the attic. They used non-fire rated spray insulation in a hole between two attached units that had a fire rated drywall prior to this issue. They refused to replace it with the wall and left it non-fire rated. They replaced carpet with MUCH less quality and when we asked about it we were told that's what we are using.
They were just happy with short cuts everywhere. If we had not been hear checking every day they were happy to patch it up and leave it with us thinking everything was fine. They even broke two items (the air vent cover and toilet lid) and left them broken.
The owner came out and told us his company was done and they left the house covered completely with drywall dust. This dust was even inside the kitchen cabinets, drawers, the washing machine, inside the dressers, EVERYWHERE! They did not cover anything while sanding several locations of drywall. It took us 2 months to clean/wipe down every item in the downstairs that could be salvaged and had to throw out over 200 items that could not be saved from the mold, water damage, or drywall dust.
To top it off, one of the workers STOLE an engagement ring and the owner did nothing about it. When I told him that when he subcontracts out he really needs to check into the people he is sending out working for him (one of the sub-contracters he had never used before or meet). His response was everyone has the right to their opinion.

We purchased a historic home in dilworth and had
(
owner and contractor) look at the house from the beginning. We did a full inspection on the home and had his engineer come look before we purchased. Following purchase
(lead designer) and
designed the remodel, addition, garage, and face-lift from scratch. They did all the drawing and design and then had this all put in autocad for blueprints and 3d images. They handled the entire historic approval as well and sailed through without issue. This is something we watched many other contractors struggle with.
They started the project promptly and worked diligently throughout the build. Addressed issues with rapid response and attention to detail. Never tried to trick us into change orders or up charges and in fact both
and
work hard to keep you on budget. We were faced with many challenges with weather and drainage issues but
handled them perfectly and under budget.
We couldn't be any happier with the final design and build of our home and with the great relationship we still have with
and
. This is a true design to build firm and they do it all. They make the process fun and easy. We were quite intimidated with picking out all the details but with
is was so easy!. In my mind this is the only builder to use and best to use as design/drawing as well.

It has taken almost 8 months to build a 1350 square foot home. That's about 4 months too many. When we asked for reasons for the delay, we were given any number of excuses and repeatedly told all the things that he was doing for us. It seemed like we should have been grateful for him doing his job. When asked for a completion date, we were always told he would need two more weeks before he could say. Four weeks later, he still needed two more weeks... and now it's almost a year later. Yes, some of the problems were because of the

CDC not keeping him in line, but he is the one who chose to get out of line. We have had to extend our construction contract and we've almost missed our contract date with the bank, which could result in a legal battle. In the end he has put about $20,000 in upgrades into the house that we never agreed to and cannot be held responsible for. That's a good thing, but it makes me very nervous for the next young couple who he takes advantage of.

When we finally moved in, we did not have heat. Because we called another company for a quick fix,
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
told us that we have voided our homeowner's warranty and refuses to fix the problem. SInce consulting an HVAC specialist we were told that our duct work is wrong and will lead to major problems. Vents were also installed incorrectly. In addition, he did not put in the appliances requested and substituted countertops without our permission.

arrived on time and was very professional. He was very detail oriented and did the job in a timely fashion. When job was complete he cleaned up and made sure we were completely satisfied before he left.

I've been involved in many construction and renovation projects over the years, but I've never had a better working relationship with a contractor than I've enjoyed with
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. They were great at using our inputs and developing a plan that was suitable and affordable. Where we needed help and advice, they were able to fill in the gaps.
This project was particularly challenging because it involved sorting through the aftermath of a flood -- finding
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
damage, demolition work, as well as the repairs themselves. All of this required working closely with the insurance company who accepted
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's work estimate without change (even though their original settlement offer was notably less). All of the additional items
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
found were well-documented and approved in advance. Even the claims representative gave us positive feedback on
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's input and the rapport they developed made the whole process much easier.
Perhaps the most impressive aspect of our experience with
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is that we do not live in
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and needed a contractor who would stay on top of the work and manage to a tight budget. We put our trust in
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and are thoroughly pleased with the results.
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's team did an excellent job and he managed the work as if it were his own home. I did not get to see the results until it was nearly complete. The condo looked great and
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
wasn't done - he had his own punch list (longer than mine) to make sure everything was done to his satisfaction.
On time. On budget. Excellent work. No worries.
Do yourself a favor and hire them. Period.

My wife and I got estimates from 3 A-rated companies on Angie's List, and we decided to go with
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
because he was willing to work with us to keep the cost down by allowing me to do as much of the work as possible myself -- tear the brick off the existing rear wall where the addition was going, dig the footings, install and finish the drywall, paint the walls and trim, install the flooring, and design and install the closet partitions, shelves, and rods.

Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
up a construction calendar for us and stuck to it, starting and finishing when promised. I was impressed by his attention to detail (on one occasion,
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
removed and reinstalled, at no extra cost to us, a large section of siding that his assistant had installed the day before, because the lowest strip was 1/2" higher than he felt it should have been) and by his commitment to quality (if in doubt, he always built things thicker and stronger than the building codes required). Whenever it was time for me to do an agreed-upon part of the work,
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
gave me basic instruction and pointers, installed a small section for me (if necessary) so I could see how to proceed, then loaned me the necessary tools to finish the job. On a couple of occasions when mistakes were made (by himself, his assistant, or a subcontractor),
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
explained the problem to me and made sure it was fixed quickly and well, and he "ate" the additional cost himself.

We have had no problems with the addtion since it was completed, and I don't anticipate any in the future. However, if something were to come up that was related to his part of the job, I feel confident that
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
would work with us to make sure it was resolved to our satisfaction, both because he has proven himself to be a man of his word and because he prides himself on doing things well. He is a down-home kind of guy, not a sophisticated type, but he knows his craft well.

We hired an architect from NYC to design an addition that maintained the integrity of our current 1940s bungalow while adding on modern designs for the 1,000 square feet of additional space. The project began with the demolishing of a spare bedroom to make room for the new addition. Next set a new foundation and framed out the addition, which included adding steel beams for the cantilever roof over the back patio. Detailing included adding a rubber roof, customized cabinets, concrete sinks, elaborate tile designs. The attic and crawl space were then conditioned for energy efficiency purposes.

Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was hired because of his honesty, transparent business model, and his ability and willingness to hire the best contractors for each job. We enjoyed working with him and getting to know him as a person and would gladly recommend him for similar projects.

were such a pleasure to work with last year during the full completion of our large basement. There were able to quickly assess the work and understood the vision we had of the basement being an extension of the rest of our home, right down to the details of the baseboards, molding, and understood we wanted a top of the line basement.
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
always had our best interests at heart from the onset of the 1st meeting and it continued thereafter.
They exude trust, confidence, and high quality construction.
Construction started quickly after signing the contract, and they completed project efficiently and quickly.
They have a positive and grateful attitude and are always willing to address any concerns or answer questions.
They demonstrated courtesy, professionalism, and competency each day - and put in long hours to ensure a great job!

I would highly recommend them to anyone - and I am sure we will use them again also!
Thanks so much guys,

(owner) and
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
(superintendent) were superb in all respects.
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
spent countless hours researching best practices for green building -- when we started, this was pretty new in the
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
area -- and worked tirelessly with me to achieve
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Gold certification for the home, resulting in outstanding air quality, water conservation and energy efficiency. The construction quality is outstanding. Subcontractors were tightly supervised and the job site was kept extremely clean and tidy.
Charlotte Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is one of the most honest people I know. His bids often come in a bit higher than his competition but that is because (1) he is so honest about what it will cost you, so there aren't surprises during construction like with most builders, and (2) the quality of materials and workmanship is outstanding -- and you get what you pay for. (Which is why I gave him an A in the price category.)
