Houston Home Builders Reviews

"Pros: Took action when concerns about the work were brought to their attention by clients Communicated by phone and email in a timely manner with clients Cons: Poor quality of work that had to be redone upon client complaint Poor/lack of supervision of contractors Selective about what concerns to address; not all client concerns were addressed Content of communication was in a negative and blaming manner; no responsibility was ever taken After the work was performed, extra cleaning services of work site were needed at the cost of the client Oversold expertise in remodeling and repairing 1950s era homes Company representatives do not work well nor communicate well with a woman client "
"Excellent workmanship, solid door fit-up, trim work, brick board trim. Used quality materials, Hardy Board on closeout panel with steep angle at the bottom of the closeout to insure runoff. Timely and kept me appraised of progress. Originally build in 1925 I expected issues,

kept me informed, offering well thought-out options. Although this was on my rental house, I plan to have

"It went amazing I have already recommended family member to them. I called a couple of places that were a little cheaper but I didn't like that they mailed me the alarm system and they wanted me to install it myself. The owner was very knowledgeable and informative about not just his system but others as well.
"This company is completely unresponsive and has no sense of urgency even when they know that you are living in a home that has considerable damage. If you value your time, don't waste your time with this company, unless you are okay with doing the work at their convenience - not yours.

"I cannot comment on and haven't rated the price or quality of construction completed by
Houston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Houston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Custom Homes in any other location. My comments relate to the demolition and safety measures at this site only which I have personally witnessed:
Quality F: I rate F based on the quality of their safety measures and poor attempt to secure the open excavations they left in the sidewalk.
Responsiveness F: On 19th August 2012, the city of Houston filed a violation addressing the open excavations on the pavement, weeds and overgrown nature of the premises but nothing has been done about it nearly two months later.
Punctuality F: This building has been derelict for 12 months. The excavation on the street has been open for at least 3 months, despite violations filed by the city.
Professionalism F: There is an open hole on the side walk measuring 5' 6" x 3' in diameter and 3' deep with a mound of earth beside it. The hole has an old door lying over it (not secured and not completely covering the hole) with the word "

" spray painted on it. There are also some old packing crates lying over the hole, again, not secured or completely covering the hole. There is another excavation of similar diameter and 1' deep that has been partially overgrown by weeds, but the hole is still there. These are appallingly poor safety measures and have been there for over 3 months. This is a public street.

"The provider had completed some framing work for us outside of this contract and was eager, if not pushy, to get the ball rolling on our major renovation project, for which we had taken out a home equity loan, urging us that they had the crews and knowledge to knock out this job in no time. Against better judgement, we hired them and paid them one third of the $48,000.00 total for the job. They moved all of our belongings except our master bed into our garage including all the toys of our five year old daughter who would be living with us through the renovation. Given their short time frame for work we thought this would be fine.

While the framing went quickly, they soon pulled all but one guys off of the job for the tile work. The worker didn't know what he was doing and was poorly supervised. It took weeks to level the floor (using the cheapest most labor intensive method) and
Houston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
the tile. Per our contract, the next third of our payment was due totaling $32k. Assured this was a small hick-up well on its way to being resolved, and being pushed to do so, we cut the check.

When the tile work was done, we had to point out the fact that the majority of the tiles were hollow to the contractors who never would have noticed. Our entire downstairs was a disaster for two months as they paid someone to learn how to
Houston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
our tile properly. This job would have taken a professional one week
Houston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. They also worked on electrical and plumbing work, using unlicensed individuals to do so. We had to correct their work several times as the contractors were rarely there and even when they were didn't seem to notice issues and flaws. When asked why we weren't getting licensed individuals they said they always used these unlicensed people. We felt like second-rate clients to them who didn't deserve licensed professionals for $48k!

The contractors left piles of construction debris in our house and yard during this period and all of our belongings were covered in dust, even upstairs, because they failed to properly tape off work areas. My husband had to finally explain to them how to do the tile and plumbing work properly. We were on summer vacation towards the end of the tile job (all flooring was supposed to be well past completion at this point) and returned home to find tile baseboards throughout the house. This was something we had verbally communicated to the contractors we did not want and had sent an email requesting be changed well in advance of installation.

Upon our return progress pretty much halted. Nobody was working and the contractors wouldn't return our calls. Upon mention of a legal action they finally responded and explained they had "messed up", They assured us it wouldn't happen again and PROMISED us they would be able to complete the project in a timely and professional manner with licensed people for plumbing and electrical and a sheet rock crew for our walls.

After another month of playing around with our drywall we again only had one person working, had terrible workmanship, and were left without communication. This is FOUR months into the contract and all we have is some framing (which we had paid out of pocket for on a separate contract not included in this total), unlicensed electrical and plumbing work and partial flooring and dry wall work complete....if anything we were only about 1/10th of the way into the job and needed to fix still hollow tiles and re-do the drywall. Knowing any further work would be sub-par, unlicensed and slow, we asked the contractors to refund us $20k of the $32k previously paid. This would allow them to be credited for the sub par flooring, electrical, plumbing and dry wall work- a generous offer since we would likely have to re-do much of this work and we did not take into account the pain and suffering we endured living through the mess they created with our daughter and us only having one bedroom and bathroom downstairs, no kitchen or living/dining room or furniture besides a bed.

The contractors did not take us up on the offer. Instead, they visited us to inform us they ran out of our money- $32,000.00. They said they had spent this money on OUR home, which only had tile work, some unlicensed plumbing and electrical and some unfinished drywall work done. We still can not imagine how anyone could have spent a fraction of that amount on our house, especially with the knowledge that they had the majority of the job left to do with the $32,000 we paid them up front. They informed us since they were out of money, they would be leaving our home, which is a full blown construction zone with no kitchen, proper lighting, properly painted or textured drywall, and exposed concrete and wiring in many areas, just as it is with no further work and no reimbursement of funds. A sheet rock crew came out after the fact and informed us they would have to re-do most of the floating and texture throughout our whole downstairs to correct the poor workmanship they had left. We still have to meet with a tile person, plumber and electrician to find out the costs of fixing other work they did. We have approximately $36k to $40k left to do of work from our contract and repair work from the work they did, and are only left with our final payment of $12k to try to bring our home back to some sort of liveable standard for our little girl who has been such a trooper and has endured so much over the past four months of construction.

These people looked us in the eyes and promised us multiple times they would complete this process and knew what they were doing. They saw the misery we were living in week in and week out, our belongings covered in dust or stuck in a humid garage piled upon each other. They saw our daughter begging to have somewhere to play, having to stay away from exposed wires and dry wall dust which littered our food. Instead they have run off with out last penny and aren't even looking back. This is by far the worst experience I have had with any human being, let alone contractor, period. I just pray nobody else has been taken for their last cent by these people the way we have.
"The contractor stayed in touch with me because we rescheduled once or twice, but we texted or emailed.
He was prompt, inspected the roof, made one minor repair. Would it have cost me $149; I don't know, but
this was worth the piece of mind.
"I finally got my dream house!
Houston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
made every thing I imagined in my mind come to life. I have never reused a contractor because my husband and I are extremely picky clients. We loved
Houston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's work so much that I recommend him to my family and friends. My family and friends could not believe the transformation done on the house."
"The overall experience was excellent. We are very glad we choose
Houston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
for this job. There were numerous meetings with
Houston Home Builders Provider Name Locked
at each stage of the remodeling. The result is a home we are very proud of."
