Constant delays and consistently asking for advances on payment before completing the work. Provided no oversight to the workers that resulted in more delays, mistakes and barely acceptable workmanship. By his own admission, Bill
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, the owner of
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, is a bad businessman and doesn't finish a project without trying to get more and more money out of his customers. The worst was when he brought in a subcontractor that didn't install our siding correctly. Bill took several pictures that showed the mistakes. He never paid the subcontractor and never fixed the problems. The other electrical and plumbing susubcontractors would ask if they were going to get paid. I made payments directly to the subcontractors so they would show up and complete the work. Bill
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
confessed to me that he under bid the job and could not finish it unless I paid him in advance. After he was paid, he eventually stopped showing up. He abandoned the jobsite and never paid the subcontractors. I did not hear from

after dozens of phone calls, emails & texts, I had to bring in other subcontractors to fix the mistakes and complete the project at an additional expense. The whole experience with

I feel this company devalued my home. Sloppy, haphazard work was performed even after showing them and telling them exactly what I wanted. They came into our home and didn't protect the home's hardwood flooring from their boots and construction dirt and grim. We had to give them paper and tape to cover the hardwood flooring where they would walk through the house. I really felt that these workers didn't care about our property and we wondered how much work was being accomplished since only one worker appeared to know how to do the work.
The hardwood for the kitchen flooring was faulty, but the installer just kept nailing it in not stopping to tell us it was defective. We happened to notice how bad it looked. We stopped the installation. The owner said our other room with this same hardwood looked the same and tried to find faulty seams there. He pointed to seams that were just fine.
This company could have started to tile the master bathroom while we replaced the defective hardwood, but the owner pulled them off the job because it was raining. (Note: Our master bathroom is indoors and we have a 3-car garage in which to cut tile.) Since replacing the hardwood would require letting the hardwood acclimate to our home's humidity adding another 48 - 72 hours to the installation, we decided to use tile and that day we found a suitable tile. We couldn't purchase nor pick up the tile at the store since the owner told us that he wanted to check the tile to see if it was an adequate product. Later the owner stated that he had to pull his two workers off the job because WE caused all the delays and he needed them on another (much larger, bigger bucks) job.
While removing the kitchen island they gouged the kitchen wall, dented the wood frame around the pantry door, and put dents in the side of the cabinet on the island. While removing their tile cutter from their truck they dented the aluminum framing around the garage door. Tile cutter was placed on the driveway causing the driveway six weeks later to still have a white haze on it since they didn't rinse the dust and debris off effectively, even after being asked twice to do so. By placing their tools on our kitchen counters long scratches in the counter were made. Fortunately, we were in the process of replacing the countertops but had to live with the ugly scratches until our countertops were ready.
The tile in the kitchen was installed without tile spacers. Another contractor came into our house and without much looking noticed the different widths to the grout lines. The haze on this floor was not cleaned up when this part of the job was done. They walked over the grout residue for two more days while they tiled the bathroom. As a result, the tiles in their walk path had to be scrubbed repeatedly to get this residue off.
I took
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's two tile installers into our main bath and showed them how I wanted my master bathroom tiles to be installed, with the same 1/8 inch grout lines. None of the grout lines in the master bath is1/8 inch and they also vary in width, just like the kitchen's. Again, no spacers were used. The grout is not smooth. There are ripples in it and some lines need more grout. The tiles are not level. I moved my foot sideways and my shoe caught the
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
of a raised tile causing my ankle to turn slightly. A section of wood trim was cut about 1 1/2 inches too short and left like that. Since I couldn't walk on the newly grouted tiles, I didn't notice this until later. The tile installer assured me that tiling is what he does best, and that he's been doing this for years. Well, I've been cooking for years, but that doesn't make me a candidate for the
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Beard award.
To remove the island, tile the kitchen and the master bath took ten days. The owner said he needed these two workers for the bigger job and could not install our bedroom bamboo. I wasn't going to let this company stay another day in my home anyway.
I don't even want to talk about the paper work. Since we changed from hardwood to tile the price changed and a change order was not drawn up. He said he uses Home DePot's prices, but that proved not to be the case for larger square footages. I got scribbles of prices from his tablet and some prices were just stated, not written down. I had to go over the numbers again to make certain we were paying the right prices. I really feel this company should have repaired my pantry frame and my garage, but honestly, I wouldn't trust them to sharpen a pencil for me. Run when you see this company unless you like fast talkers and slow workers.

The whole process went very smoothly and efficiently. The excavation had to be done manually (pick, shovel, and wheelbarrow) but the workers were remarkably capable and efficient. The worksite was carefully and thoroughly cleaned after the work was completed.

All the work done by subcontractors was very good. All the work done by

Fine was horrid. He has changed the name of his business three times because of customer complaints, He's savvy and knows how to avoid law suits. There is a link below to see Mr.

's workmanship. We refused to pay another dime until all the subpar and not up to code work was fixed. His response was he would have his subcontractors put a

Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
according to the contract he did not pay his subcontractors. In order not to put a
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
on our house we had to sign a release agreement absolving him of all contractual warranties. It cost us an additional $40,000.00 to correct his abysmal workmanship. Stay clear.

We purchased a custom home last summer that was 70% complete. We chose the home because of it's beautiful construction and were delighted to be able to hire Mr.
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
of New West Log Homes to complete the project because he had done the initial construction. We cannot say enough good things about the craftsmanship that went into our beautiful home! Mr.
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is not only a perfectionist at his trade but he is professional and personable. We were in another state while the project was completed. He was always quick to responded to any communication, provide updates and photos and was eager to please. We highly recommend Mr.
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
for any construction and/or remodeling project.

owner of DPL Construction arrived on time, exactly when he said he would, to review the job. He explained in detail what he planned and how he would go about the work. He provided me an estimate the next day.
I contacted
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to accept his bid for the work and explained my time frame for getting the work completed.
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
worked the job into his schedule and completed the work with exceptional quality. He was even able to repair the gate to the fencing that had also been damaged from the water erosion on that side of my house.
Thanks
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
for doing a great and professional job.

Estimate was never performed.
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
showed up and went over plans. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. He left with architectural plans and advised it would be a couple months before he would get back (August). He said he would be happy to discuss the plans with my son who
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
them up. My son tried to contact
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
in August, leaving voice mails that were not returned. I left voice messages and then emailed
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
.

Apologetically,
Lanett Home Builders Provider Name Locked
admitted to being busy and overlooking my project. He wrote he could not get to the estimate for another 2 months. I informed him that my timetable would allow for the delay. Upon my response, he declined, admitting the had two projects over one half million dollars that he had come to fruition.

Anyone considering getting an estimate, may consider asking this company how they prioritize and value customers. What I experienced demonstrates money is the motivator.

First I want to say that they were courteous and quick to return my initial call. They showed when promised, wrote up a contract, and started work within 2 weeks. We were told the job would take approximately3 days and it did. The crew was very respectful, cleaned after themselves, and overall the job looks great. I would re-hire them for any future job.

Very friendly staff. And, considering that this work was done in 2003, and they installed a tank able to accommodate a 4-bedroom home, we did not pump it until earlier this month (8/2014), and found that it was only beginning to show signs of needing to be pumped.
