Madison Home Builders Reviews

"We started working with
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
in May. We had plans drawn by an architect already. He promised that he would have a computer plan of our project to show us by a certain day and kept changing the day because he was too busy to finish it. He kept cancelling meetings with us. He told us that he really wanted to do our project and would be able to work with us shortly. He told us that he just finished a big job and can now work on ours. We had a scheduled meeting with him at 7:30 today. He called and stated he had to help move all his equipment to a new project. We tried to set up another time to meet today. He stated he did not get my message.This is very frustrating and quite dishonest to treat a client this way. I read a previous review and now know he does this often. This is a project we hoped would have been completed this summer. I hope this review protects others from losing valuable time on their building projects.

was hired to be the contractor to add a 20-30 addition onto our existing home. This addition would turn our 3-bedroom ranch into a 5-bedroom ranch. The work to the addition was done with equal quality to the existing home.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
from
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
did a fine job in keeping within budget and respected our wish for that as we had twins on the way.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
managed the job fine and his crews for the most part did well. The only one that did not in my opinion was the crew who dug out the hole for the basement. They could have put some wood down or something in order to not destroy my yard and my neighbors yard. While I expect some damage to be done I
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
’t expect them to drive over the neighbors downspout and then not say anything.
The biggest issue I had with
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was dealing with a double hung window that was melting the siding of the new addition.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
had the window manufacture replace the top portion of the windows but had me pay labor to install them! His defense was he installed the original ones correctly so therefore I must pay again to have the replacements installed. NOT FAIR! To me he should have paid this because while he installed the windows correctly they were just simply the wrong windows for this particular application. Nobody could have foreseen this, but
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
should have done the right thing and replaced the window tops at no cost to me.
While the above issue really bothered me
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was still willing to ask questions after that. I will say the work Quality did was good work and they performed things in a timely manner.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and his crews were very conscious of my wife’s pregnancy and did what they could to make things easy on her and to get the job done before they were born.
If this review seems mixed to you that is because it is. While I overall enjoyed the experience with
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
the one issue really bothers me.

Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was the general contractor for our recent kitchen remodel.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is fabulous to work with. He and his team have meticulous attention to detail and do beautiful work. Our kitchen is the envy of friends and family! We had budget constraints and
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was great about helping us figure out what we could do within the budget. Once the work began, they went above and beyond to minimize the disruption to our household during the remodeling process. They did a thorough cleaning every day and put up a plastic partition to keep dust out of the rest of the house. They were upfront in communicating about project delays. I highly recommend their services to anyone undertaking a kitchen remodel in the
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
area.

"This was the second job
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
organized for us.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is well connected to several independent subcontractors.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and his team is an absolute pleasure to work with. He and his son personally do or watch over much of the carpentry. Everything was done on time and very cleanly installed. We love the results. If you want a low drama remodelling experience consider calling
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked

"Everything went fine until the finish coat. I have never succeeded in scheduling it. Phone calls and emails from me have all failed to get a rise out of
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. He refuses to finish the job he contracted to do. I will never recommend
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to anyone. In my experience, 15 months after signing the contract,
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is nowhere to be found. He doesn't complete his work (though his cell phone answering mode promises to call right backk).
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is totally undependable.

"They arrived when they promised. Installed the same day. They did a great job and cleaned up afterwards. The insert looks and works great as well as the air-tight door. Further, they were significantly less expensive than any other company for the exact same make/model/installation."
B
"Price was fair for a full-service contract work, but you can save at least 20% on individual jobs. Part of this was to cover interior design-related overhead, which we understand and accept, given this is full-service. We did take back some of the work simply because they were nowhere competitive on pricing (hardwood floor install/refinishing and painting). To be fair though, when we asked
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to help with insulation, they did find the highest quality sub-contractors and the work showed. The team was very professional, courteous, and with high integrity - important traits for our family. The project looks great and functions well.
2 things that bothered us (hence the "B" Overall Experience and a "B" Quality), and
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was fully aware of them:
1. A random person walked into our house unannounced one day, walked around inside the house, and then disappeared. He had no identification as to whether he was with
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
or a hired subcontractor.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
also had no clue who this person was, because the crew left the house earlier, with doors unlocked. This startled our babysitter and our 2 young boys, and we were very concerned with their safety, particularly when it is obvious that renovation work was being done with
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
construction sign parked in front of our house. However,
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
apologized immediately and made sure they tell us who were onsite going forward, and thank goodness nothing bad happened.
2. There were nails that punctured the pipes in the 2nd floor bathroom as
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was renovating (they did not
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
the locations of the pipes to remind their floor guys). Anyhow, our 1st floor ceiling & the walls were soaked, and water seeped into our basement.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
promptly remedied it, as they tore out the drywall, the ceiling, air-dried the damage, and replaced them all. While
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
absorbed all the costs, this delayed the project for a week, and hampered our living space.

"The
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
crew did an excellent job remodeling my kitchen. They were responsive to issues that developed during the job and made everything right. The quality of products and workmanship justify the higher cost.

Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and his team are superb. In bidding out our project, our goal was to find a contractor who could maintain the integrity and character of our newly-purchased early 1900's Vilas neighborhood home, while at the same time improving the flow and functionality of the house.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was the perfect choice. He loves and understands old homes and has the skills and experience necessary to complete a major renovation. He also provided and stuck to a very competitive bid. Throughout, he and his team maintained a friendly and professional mien. They respected our timeline and stayed within their original estimate. Overages that did occur were due to additions on our part.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is a meticulous and exacting craftsman and no detail escapes his notice. This provided us with much peace of mind as we were overseeing the renovation from afar. We trusted
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to do things right and he did. Priceless. By the end of our project,
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and his crew felt like family and we are absolutely thrilled with our new home. I should also note that
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is a very skilled designer and is facile with 3-D software. We ended up using his design instead of the design provided by a 3rd party designer. Save your money!

"It went very well.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
met with me to scope out the house and get information for his bid. The plans for my addition were done by a designer
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
has worked with in the past and they provided a good basis for the bid. After
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
had put together his bid he came to my house to walk me through it. It was a very thorough package and included labor and materials quotes from all of the necessary sub contractors including: concrete, demolition, framing, windows, doors, plumbing, electrical, insulation, drywall, roofing, flooring, and disposal. I was impressed with all the work he had put into the bid package, with no commitment from me.
I decided to use
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
for my project. I had to add about four feet to the front of the garage to allow for a new entry door from the garage into the house. Most everything went smoothly and according to plan. At one point, the framers swapped two windows openings; a large window where it should have been a small and vice versa. We caught it early and
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
made it right. Another time, the lag bolts used to secure the floor joists of the new room were too long and penetrated just slightly into the existing house.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
had the framers back those bolts out and use the proper size, later the drywallers patched up the holes.
The project took a little longer than anticipated at the start, but that is mostly not
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's fault. I had some family helping self perform some tasks - tiling the sun room, and interior trim. Getting those things done in the proper order caused the schedule to shift.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was very supportive of my desire to self perform a few things. He also helped me out in choosing and purchasing the siding I installed. I bit off a little more than I could chew in thinking I could do the stair railing. When I realized I couldn't do it properly,
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was there with his carpenter to get it done.
All in all I am very satisfied with the project. My family and I now spend most of our time in the new space. The only overages above the original estimate were for the stair railing, which wasn't in the estimate because I said I would do it, and a new electrical box which was needed to bring the house up to code. Even though
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's fee was based on a percentage of the overall cost, he didn't up his fee with these increased costs. That's something I appreciate and respect.
Madison Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is a straight shooting organization. You work with them to find out what you want and how much it will cost, and that's what you get and what you pay.
