Raleigh General Contractors Reviews

"Mr.
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
was exacting in the description of what he would do. He deserved a review a lot sooner than I have posted it. Although we ended up postponing the whole project we have been impressed with Mr.
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
work around our neighborhood. Should we get a big windfall this coming year we would consider him for the job.

"Excellent!! Can't say enough how great
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew are. Always on time, if going to be late would notify me and give me estimated time of arrival. Before leaving ever day, would clean up. I have used many contractors before, I believe I have found the best!!

"Talk about consummate professionals with amazing skills and fantastic customer service! Nick
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his partner
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
Gray are running a top-notch painting and carpentry business in
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and from the first moment of contact to the end of the project they and every single member of their crew were outstanding.
I called Nick on a Wednesday evening and he came to the house at noon the next day. This is the owner of a busy company with branches in both
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
! I was amazed. Nick spent a lot of time explaining the process to me and answering my questions. The detailed estimate he prepared for me was accurate even though he could never have foreseen the amount of rotten wood his crew would have to repair. Both Nick and
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
worked hard to stay within our budget. The overall price would be high for a
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
paint job, but this house had been neglected for over ten years and had lots of water damage. Nick has on his crew skilled carpenters who cut the wood to order and matched exactly our siding and trim. They built a new crawlspace door from scratch, too.
Mason
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
helped manage our project so that it went flawlessly despite many surprises the skilled crew encountered such as a hole in the roof that ruined work they had already done, heavy unexpected rain, and wood rot greater than expected. Always Nick and
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
had alternatives that could save us money. These guys care about their customers and their employees. Speaking of which, every person who worked at our house was pleasant, hard-working, skilled and incredibly considerate. Many thanks to
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
,
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
, and especially
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
for every little extra thing they did every day.
The end result is so beautiful we hardly know our house. It was so great we asked Nick if they could paint our kitchen and repair the drywall on the ceiling, and they did so at a huge discount. These guys know house painting and repairs so well that when I discussed the floor I had in mind, Nick anticipated every problem we would encounter in replacing it.
All of this without a cent up front!
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
did not request payment until the entire job was finished to our satisfaction. When there was a minor issue after the house was finished (some wires were out of place on the exterior) they had someone out at the house and the problem fixed within an hour of my call.
OUTSTANDING company, fantastic people. You cannot go wrong with

"Here we go again:















The vinyl siding is buckling around the entire house. Pieces have literally fallen off of the house ~ there was no storm or wind.












...more />

Two professional painters have been through my house and both agree NO primer was used on ANY sheetrock prior to "painting." I use that word very loosely. The whole interior, front porch, formerly finished garage and doors were never painted properly. Whomever wrote the review about the painting was very lucky. Flat paint was used in all of my bathrooms. The sheetrock is buckling underneath from the tub/shower water and moisture. You can still see the tape around the top of my kitchen at the ceiling. The moulding used in my house is nowhere near the quality of what was in my old house.















I have had to replace the appliances because they were substandard to what was in my home prior to the fire. The
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
is dented and some of the dishwasher cycles do not work. No paperwork came with the microwave and it was so large I couldn't fit pots underneath it to cook on the
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
.















The hardwood floors are buckling on the first floor, have scratches on them. In the downstairs bathroom there was a pretty bad leak and the hardwoods and mouldings are ruined, which Mr.
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
was well aware of. Mold is growing around the pedestal sink and it is starting to fall through the floor.















I had a nice hall closet and pantry. Not anymore. Now I have an inside utility room with almost a 12" hole and a dozen wires or more just hanging out.















My master bath is a garden tub, but is surrounded by a single, plastic surround. At least 12-14 inches are not covered; hence, walls are getting ruined and flat paint is not helping.















Mr.
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
refused to do a walk through or fix any repairs under his warranty because he stated I owed him an additional $80,000. He has had more than 90 days to file a
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and has not done so. So, he refuses to honor his one year warranty.















The kitchen linoleum is coming up approximately an inch at the door jam and the wood floors are cracked at every jam. Under the sink the trim was never nailed down properly. One nail. It's coming off.































I have never seen such a mess after a construction site in my life. Me and friends have picked up truck loads full off construction garbage, including shingles, rotten wood, glass, thousands of nails, the double sink from my kitchen was on the back porch. Empty food containers, drink containers, thousands of cigarette butts, plastic, you name it and evidence of alcohol and marijuana use on MY property was also discovered and disposed of. Not acceptable.















The floor where the fire started is now sinking in spots and you can see it on the ceiling on the garage below. No floors are even.















They painted over mold on my front porch and it looks worse than it ever did.































The finishing work is disgusting. The gaps are anywhere from 1/4" to 1" in some places. Those who have come through here to see the work to fix what has been destroyed are actually in shock. If my house is not finished properly, it can be condemned as unsafe.















don't be fooled by Mr.
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
' charming personality and just because his son,
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
Lands, who works for Mr.
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
, is a
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
cop, doesn't make him honest. He just unlocked my door one day and let someone in my house while I was upstairs with the flu.















The light in my son's closet does not work. Electrical outlets were not placed where I requested. They disconnected the lamppost wiring and garden pond from the house and REFUSED to reconnect it.















The stairs were not replaced and creak like they are 100 years old. Wet carpet was on them for two years. Squirrels lived on the steps with nuts for goodness sake, and Mr.
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
refused to replace them.















I had better closet shelving in my apartment than in this house. There is no closet shelving in two of the closets.















Trees were cut down but stumps were left. Shrubs removed or destroyed were not replaced.















There are holes in every bathroom around toilets and sinks and where the washer and dryer hookup is where mice and rodents can easily come into my house. The outside water connection comes off in your hands and is literally coming out of the side of the house.















After looking at pictures (which survived) of my original house, I have received estimates ranging anywhere from $85,000 to $120,000 to return this home to a home worth $240,000, including providing the balcony drawn up on the plans which apparently my house can't hold the weight of, as well as metal shelving taken from the garage. There are NO light sockets in the garage. I told him I didn't need as many as I had because I used to run a business from there.















Mr.
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
reused items from my home on other clients and charged them full price.















He did not pay his subs and sent them after ME to be paid. I guess he is very proud of himself doing this to someone he has known since we were 13 and knowing I am a single mom of an autistic child. If he will do that to me, what do you think he will do for you? Just food for thought.















I think you get the gist of what's going on. I would be HAPPY to have someone come through this house and see how bad it really is. I don't want him or his crew to touch ANYTHING in my house to screw it up even more. I want a refund to have the repairs done properly and safely.































Thank you for your time.

"Very professional. They showed up when they stated they would show up. It took a few weeks to get to us but at least we were not strung along, he kept us informed on his schedule. Work was done neatly and with good quality. Had small problem with the gutters when they were put back but
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very polite and sent someone out to fix the issue right away. I could not have asked for anything more. I will definately use his sevices again.

"The whole project went well compared to other renovations we have had done to our 40 year old house.
We had only 1 day where we had a conflict over scheduling workers - but it was quickly resolved with a phone call.
Highly recommend this company.

the owner did an excellent job with the wood rot repair on my cedar wood home. The previous owner did not maintain the siding properly and there was extensive damage. I got quotes from other contractors but did not feel entirely comfortable with them since wood/siding repair was not their main business. I came across
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
, requested a quote and decided to use his services. The job took 5 days and
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his employee made sure to replace every rotten piece they encountered. This was a very detail oriented job due to the style siding I have. I am extremely pleased with the results. The only negative thing was that I found several nails around the house after completion of job. I own a nail magnet and was able to take care of this issue myself. I would highly recommend
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
to anyone that needs siding repairs.

"I was a complete novice.

made the remodel a good experience.
They cleaned up after themselves.
They calmly handled all problems.
I will recommend their honesty, professionalism and craftsmanship to anyone.

"From start to finish the renovation went smoothly. They were able to demo the bathroom in one day and cleaned up afterwards. They then started to rebuild. The work seemed to flow well.
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
always kept me updated on how things were going. I always knew what to expect, which is a great feeling. They were very trustworthy. I have small children and it can be very uneasy feeling to have people working in the house. I did not have any uneasy feeling with this company.
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his employees are all very trustworthy and respectful. I was so pleased with them and the work that they do that I hired them again. They are currently renovating my master bath.

"On October 27, 2011,
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
, who he stated was his son, visited my house to discuss work on the deck, building rooms and creating storage space for this house. After checking out 4 references that
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
provided (they all provided very positive statements about the quality and reliability of
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s work),
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and I agreed that he would come by on January 19, 2012 to start the work. At my house on January 19, 2012,
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and I agreed that he would start by building a large storage shelf supported from the ceiling in the garage, for which he estimated $875 total cost, of which was $350 was for materials. I provided to
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
a check for $350 to purchase these materials.
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
cashed the check on January 19 and then indicated that the bank did not make the funds immediately available to him, so he proposed rescheduling the work one week later on January 26. On January 26,
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
called and rescheduled the work to February 2. On February 1, he called and rescheduled the work to February 6. He did not arrive to do the work on February 6 or any time thereafter. He did not answer voicemails that my wife and I left for him at 919-817-7063 on February 6 and 8 and in which my wife and I requested that he inform us about when he could do the work. On February 10, 2012, I called him at 919-817-7063 from a telephone number that he did not recognize. He answered the telephone and hung up once he realized that I was the person calling. A minute later, I called back to
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s telephone number 919-817-7063 and left voicemail in which, due to lack of communication from him and due to indications that he would not carry out the work as agreed on, I cancelled the agreement to build a storage shelf in the garage and stated that the $350 needs to be returned.
Raleigh General Contractors Provider Name Locked
has not responded the voicemail and has not returned the $350. No materials were delivered for the $350 and no work was ever performed. Pure fraud.
