Do not go near this company. Bad news. we've never been treated so distastefully and with more
.......ever. Though he had been paid, he did not pay his subs and came to us with several and many over indulged coasts for extras.....including adding a 40% general contracting fee to the electrical "extras". Did not pay plumber and electrician. If he paid the cabinet company, drywall mud company or his employees I do not know. He was fired. We have scrambled to find honest professionals to finish our work. Misery, hardship and great emotional strain!!

reviewed my home plans we had drawn by an architect. After looking at the plans and our schedule, he responded that the project wouldn't fit their scope or timeline for work they normally do. I was at first disappointed, but
went out of his way to answer any questions I had, and even offered to give me advice if I had any questions about other builders who were bidding on the project. While I didn't use his company, he came across as very open and honest, helpful and responsive to what I needed done and how I could best achieve that, even when I didn't hire him. He will definitely be my first call for future construction projects.

Everything was fine until we got a letter from the City of St.

stating a permit was not pulled for
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
work. This put a major hold on the project. The inspector stated to us,

. 30th., the Piers were not properly checked since the Owner
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Boriss did not pay for a
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
City Permit inspection before our deck was built. There are still cut pieces of wood on our lawn, unfinished risers, a huge crack in deck, unfinished step work, and an unfinished threshhold. Now the city inspector has to come back and dig to see how far the piers went into the ground per my request.

Boriss sent us new invoices and asked when we planned to pay. He asked in one invoice to get all but 400 dollars of the contract, and when weather permits we'd pay the rest of the 400 dollars upon completion. The wording in the invoice kept changing mid way thru the job. We explained that completed payment would be made when all repairs were completed as first agreed. When the owner,
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Boriss, awoke our family the morning of December 20, 2013 we felt tremendous pressure by
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
of West County to pay before completion. Pressure to the point we had to call the STL Police dept. to deescalate the situation. My wife and autistic son were terrified of

Headquarters warned me of a situation were an

guy got sued for slander and had to pay like 3000 dollars or more, he recommended I make no blogs that could not be fully documented and supported. We chose not to bother the police with reports when they responded to our address. I spoke to Headquarters December 30th and they explained that I would probably not be happy with any resolutions they had in mind. I agreed, but we still felt like they were half-hearted in attempt to appease considering the traumatic events that took place. This project of a
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
wooden deck started Oct. 2, 2013. It is now

. 30, 2013 and the job has not been completed. Yesterday morning, December 30, we have been served court papers from
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Boriss. Both husband and wife here are being sued over a
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
job that should have been done a long time ago, and this would have never happened. All because of owner,

I've noticed some negative comments/ratings on Angie's List for
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, and I honestly don't believe
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
would ever deal with anyone unfairly so such comments are unfounded. To you review readers, I wish to share some of our experiences. When my wife and I first walked through the door of one of
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's duplexes (now our new home), we were instantly impressed with the floor plan - not your usual cookie-cutter duplex. We could tell right away that
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
has a very intelligent use of space and aesthetics. When we first viewed the home,
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
were busy un-doing the previous resident's damage and getting everything prepared to lease again. The previous resident had painted the walls un-inviting colors, and his/her cats had completely ruined the downstairs carpet. Seems reasonable to expect the previous resident would take responsibility for the damage and repaint the walls neutral colors and replace the downstairs carpet before moving out, but they left the clean-up to
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
didn't just clean-up - he made sure every detail was taken care of before leasing the home to us. Right from Day One he has been not just professional, but very personal, friendly, and caring. From his experience with the previous resident(s), he could have easily dismissed us from consideration for a lease because of our pets, but instead he offered to split the cost with us to have a chain-link fence built in the back yard so our puppy could have a place outside to run and play. He has always been very sweet to our dog and cat whenever he comes around, and we always enjoy his company. He is very accommodating and hospitable - it has been a real blessing having the builder of our home also manage the property. He really cares about us having the utmost comfort and enjoyment in our new home. When we first negotiated our lease, he brought the rent down to accommodate our budget. The previous resident poorly installed slat blinds in the dining room, and both have fallen down -
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
has paid for new blinds. We offered to split the cost of an upgraded faucet in the kitchen -
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
covered the entire expense and offered to come over to install it. We discovered a minor pipe leak in the basement -
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is on top of it, like always. We HIGHLY regard him for his ethics, fairness, kindness, and care. If
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
says he'll take care of it, you can take it to the bank that it will not only get done right, but he'll go above-and-beyond to accommodate. There will always be a bad apple or two trying to poison the whole barrel because they refuse to "own up" to their own failures, so I ask that you ignore them and take it from us - you couldn't work with anyone better.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is #1 in our book, and we're not the only ones who think so.

I would highly recommend
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Custom Homes for any building project. We had a building project done by
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
that was very, very custom, and we could not be happier with the end result. I wanted to build an addition to my son and his wife’s home as a mother-in-law quarters, and we wanted to join the two houses with a sunroom between. There were many possible hurtles to overcome, but with
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
’s years of experience and expertise, it all was just no problem at all! On his website he has displayed some of his impressive and large building accomplishments, but he also does any size job.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is easy to work with. From the beginning, he was helpful in saving us money. He suggested we use a draftsman that he works with to help us with our design instead of an architect. This saved us thousands of dollars.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is exceptionally prompt, and he is always available by email, text, or phone. (Before we began the process, I emailed
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to see if he would still be available to build for me. I had been waiting for my home to sell first. He was on vacation in Europe when he received my email, and he called me from there!!) His prices are competitive, and his workmanship is excellent. He works very, very efficiently. All our friends and acquaintances were extremely impressed with his speed and quality. One of the things about
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Custom Homes that I REALLY appreciated, was that after the roof was on, I could still come and decide where exactly I wanted room partitions if I wanted to make any changes!
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
works with a person to whatever degree they want! He also allowed me to shop around for my own kitchen cabinets and vanities wherever I wanted to. But the single most important thing about
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is that he is impeccably honest and professional. My son and daughter-in-law and I sensed that before we ever signed the contract. That to me, meant more than his exceptional quality and efficiency. I could trust him. And he will not quit until his clients are happy. Though I had never heard of
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
custom homes before I got onto the St.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
County Builders’ website, I feel that we now have a real friend in the building business. Please feel free to contact me through

Custom Homes if you have any questions further. My name is

We should have known to run when we were signing the deposit check and
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
said something about our putting "one foot in the grave. The company had been working on the house when we made the contract and stopped within two weeks. Deadlines appeared arbitrary and were not met.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was agreeable with our choices but did not write most down and many promises about details were not made. For example, the two old pocket doors were to be replaced with new pocket doors. We said that if there was a problem finding or making them, they could repaint what was there. I stopped by one day and one pocket door was changed to a doorless and narrower passageway between rooms. Two other doorways had been changed without consulting us and none were done with thought to daily use. For example, a light switch is now two feet from the 30 inch door whereas it had been placed properly for french doors. We have two doorways where I still reach for a light switch that is further down the wall.

Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
readily agreed to a lengthy list of items that were to be done before closing date. A week later, siting a family emergency, he requested we give him a month after closing to complete the list. Since we felt pressed on time and moving, we agreed. Big mistake. A month after closing, little on the list had been done. We were told a few times that everything on the list would be completed in a day only for us to wait hours for one or two people to arrive and complete only a few items and they were not done well. We're used to using Angie's List providers and were sorely disappointed by the quality of work done by the
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
team.

After they did a sink repair, the "repair" stripped the connection and resulted in water damage to the cabinet and floor, we had enough and I emailed
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
that we simply wanted him to write us a check so we could have repairs done by professionals.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was no longer responding to my calls or our realtors. I did get an email back from him stating that I'd agreed to have one of their repair people come to do more on the list but that was hours before I discovered that water was sitting then seeping from under the kitchen sink.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
asked for a fair settlement and I sent one but have had no further response from him or his company.

I could provide a lengthy time line and more detailed list of promises made and not kept, renovations agreed upon and not followed, shoddy work that surfaced months later, but I believe you have an idea of what you'd be working with if you entered a contract with

I contacted
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, with
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, and was almost immediatly contacted by him directly after leaving a message. We were unable to connect via phone due to my schedule, but after several attempts started to correspond via email. I explained that I am a single parent that recently purchased a home that had been rehabbed and had noticed a large patch of mold that had appeared only 2 months after having the basement finished.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and I made an appointment for several days later. He arrived with another gentleman by the name of
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and proceeded to look over my areas of concern very throughly. Due to the area being covered with drywall it was difficult for them to give me a firm quote, but they did give me a "worst case scenerio" quote. I greatly appreciated this. Basically, it was the amount they would charge me if they encountered the worst possible situation.The price they had given me was $1250. This included drywall removal, leak repair, toilet repair in guest bathroom, and dryer vent installation in basement.

Several days later I contacted
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and told him that I would like them to start work as soon as possible, due to the issue with the mold and the possible health concerns that I had for my family.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
contacted me quickly there after and we scheduled for them to start work that Thursday at 7:30am. At 7am, on Thursday morning, I walked out of my front door and the HVAC contractor was sitting in front of my house. He proceeded to introduce himself and ask me to show him where the dryer was located. He immediatly started to work.

At 7:25am
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and a the carpenter arrived to dismantle the drywall and soffett in the stairway to the basement.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
in detail explained what exactly he wanted done to the area. The carpenter was done in less than an hour.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
in detail then explained to me what and where he thought the leak may be occuring. He even put down a trash bag to try and collect whatever water may come from the leak until the plumber arrived at noon that same day.
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
then stayed around to make sure that everything went smoothly with the HVAC contractor. At 8:30am everyone had left.

Around noon that day the plumbing contractor arrived. He informed me that the leak in the basement where the mold was located was going to be "an easy fix". I also showed him where I was having issues with my toilet leaking in the guest bathroom. I also mentioned that my toilet in the master bathroom had issues with leaking as well. He inspected both toilets and told me that he would dismantle and rebuild the toilet in the guest bathroom, but that I should wait to do anything to the toilet in the master bathroom. He was very honest and told me that he didn't see any leakage or any reason to make repairs at this time. He quickly fixed the leak in the basement and moved on to the toilet in the guest bath. He had all of the parts for the repair project in his vehicle, which made things flow very smoothly. As he repaired the toilet he explained different areas of concern and why he was making the repairs. a little less than 2 hours later he was completely done with all of the repair projects. During this time
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
had called to see how things were going and to check and make sure things were going smoothly.

I have had work done by contractors in the past. Many will ask for money up front or will increase the amount of the quote in the middle of the project. I had people telling me horror stories of how contractors took their money and ran, never to be seen again. I actually had to ask
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
how much I owed him. The initail "worst case scenario" quote was $1250...the actual price was $685. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. They are a class act and a company I would highly recommend. I was intimidated in the beginning by the whole process, being a woman who knows very little about the construction industry, but I feel that I now have a person that I can call on to guide me. The interesting thing is that
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is known more for building luxury homes, but yet he treated my small home repair as if it was just as important as a much larger scale remodeling project. Thank you to
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
,
Saint Louis Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, and all of your staff and contractors for a job well done and at a very reasonable price.

The company is fantastic. First and foremost, they COME OVER WHEN THEY SAY THEY WILL. They return your phone calls, and do so with a cheerful and professional manner. Every individual whom I had contact with was helpful, friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. The work was performed in as timely a manner as weather and material supplies would allow. I would never consider calling any other remodeler for work on my house. Finally, they will work with you on price.

It was a tedious process from start to finish. Wearing so many hats each day in order to accomplish the task of a flooded remodel. Dealing with insurance companies and delays was a tedious process. But he dealt with me in a professional manner and made me feel at ease.
