About 2 weeks after we received the bid from
It is now about a month later and we are finally reaching the end of the grueling process of the 203k and the bank tells us that before we can set closing there are 3 basic forms they need from each contractor - W9, proof of liability insurance & proof of license. These are three things that should be sitting in a drawer that you can pull out and fax or email within minutes of getting the request - unless you're
I called and emailed the Friday we found out we needed these papers, no reply. I called the following Monday, no answer. I emailed Tuesday, no reply. I called Wednesday and finally got a hold of her. The excuse was, yet again, that the phones were down. We spoke about 9:30am, I let her know that it was very important that we got the papers that day since we were at our deadline and I had been trying to get a hold of her all week. She told me it wasn't a problem and that she would have everything to me that afternoon.
2:30 rolls around, no papers. I call and she tells me she will get to it. 4:20, no papers. I call, she tells me she is working on it. 5:15, no papers. I call. She says she is sending them shortly. 6:20, no papers. I call. She says she sent them 10 minutes ago. I told her they still weren't in my inbox and I asked her to please send them again. She says she will and we hang up. I wait 5 minutes with my mouse glued to the refresh button - nothing. I call. She decided to leave for the day.
The next morning I started calling their office at 8:30 when they say they open. No answer, shocker. I called every 10 minutes until about 10am or so. The phone just rang, there isn't even an answering machine. I finally get a call back about 10:15 and it is
I call. The line is busy. I call again, she answers. I told her about the missing page and she told me she would send it to me shortly. I was reaching my limit on patience. We were about to
I asked her if there was someone else there that I could speak to because this
My husband and I had a huge decision to make. Once you close on a 203k purchase you are locked into the contractors you submitted to your bank before the deal was final. You are not able to change contractors down the road. We didn't want to be stuck with her, but we were at the end of our clock and had already come so far with her as a selected contractor. We decided to
Luckily we have an amazing realtor who put us in contact with RLS Construction and
Overall, we are extremely happy with the work done by
- Failure to complete the job in the time promised
- There did not appear to be an active and focused project manager. Workers were sent to the house and did not appear to understand what was to be accomplished. This was evidenced by but not limited to the following -
> the installation of a ceiling fan in the front bedroom instead of in the den area. They came back and corrected this.
Later, at my request, they came back to re-wire to install independent wall switches to control the light and fan
separately. The person who did this, advised that the wiring that was in place prior to the project was speaker wire (not
adequate for a ceiling fan) and would have eventually resulted in an electrical fire. The use of speaker wire was not done by
Precision Group. The wire had been installed by the previous owners of the home. My issue with this finding is that
the Precision Group employee who first installed the ceiling fan used the speaker wire instead of replacing with the correct
type of wiring. If there had not been a need to take down the fan to rewire to accommodate the independent wall
switches, a fire would have eventually resulted. I appreciated the honesty and integrity of the employee who revealed this
information but got the impression that he might have been in trouble for doing so.
> installation of lighting in the wrong area - a light fixture meant for the dining area was installed in the laundry room,
> a floor vent that was against a wall that was removed was not moved. With the removal of the wall, the vent was in the
middle of the room. Instead of moving it, the vent was left in the middle of the room. When the time came to
hardwood floor to fill in the areas that had previously had a wall, the hardwood was installed around the vent. This resulted
in the vent being left in the middle of what was to be the dining area.
> Further related to the laying of the hardwood, I advised the supposed project manager,
available to be used to fill in areas where walls had been. this was prior to the beginning of this portion of the project. They
had removed hardwood prior to removal of the walls with the understanding that they would re-use as much of it as they
could and use the extra (new) pieces. Instead, they used pieces that had been damaged.
> The thermostat that had been on a wall that was removed was left hanging by a wire from the ceiling. The ceiling was
smoothed to remove the texture as agreed, drywall was completed and the thermostat was still left hanging by a wire from
> Days went by without any work being done. Promises kept being made that this would be remedied. It was not. During the
portion of the project where the whole back of the house was open and being framed was especially hard due to these
delays. It was freezing outside. The framing was completed and the opening in the back was boarded up but did not protect
against the extreme cold. It was especially aggravating to come home many days during this period to note that no
additional work had been done. The duration could have been reduced if there were workers assigned to focus on
completion of the work.
- Regular confrontations with
- Collection of draws prior to what was detailed in the contract. The owner,
- I finally got fed up with the situation and told them in mid-August that I was done with them and they no longer needed to return.
I then received a billing for what they claimed was the remainder due. This amount was greater than the cost in the contract minus the payments I had already made. I disputed the amount with
I was disappointed with this portion of my dealings with Precision Group especially after the generally favorable experience with their work to replace my roof and install siding. Overall, the experience with the remodel was horrible and I do not recommend this company.
I will not do business with this company again.
He also caulked two windows and took pictures of problems he saw on the roof and gave a written estimate if I want to have him do the repairs but suggested the company who did the roofing job should correct it under warranty. The roof is only two years old so I have contacted the roofing company and am waiting to see if these issues will be corrected by them, as they should. I believe the detailed pictures will be quite convincing.
