Home Building reviews in Fayetteville
The issue (and reason for the failing rating) was that when contacted two years later by a prospective buyer of our home, the contractor gave a different recommendation of what work needed to be completed, stating that the work completed in 2010 was simply a temporary solution to a bigger problem. When contacted by the prospective buyer, the contractor furnished an estimate which was nearly 10x the amount of the 2010 bid/ estimate. This estimate was given without visiting and inspecting the structure, but the contractor offered a more detailed/ on-site estimate for $100 (in contrast to the "free estimate" offer from their Angie's List profile). Upon receiving this estimate, I contacted the contractor for an explanation. The contractor claimed to have no record of the work done in 2010 (which essentially negated the 3 year warranty which was expressed on the initial job bid), but did happen to have a detailed drawing of the foundation/ substructure in their "jobs not completed" file. The phone call quickly escalated into a very one-sided 10 minute conversation, which was more shouting than constructive discussion.
Upon reviewing the contractor's assessment and estimate, I decided to obtain an unbiased second opinion from a structural engineer. I must give the contractor credit in that the opinion of the engineer was in concurrence with the contractor's assessment. However, the engineer's proposed solution contained many measures that were not included in the contractor's proposal of work.
The contractor's crew was also very friendly and professional, allowing me to inspect and ask questions about their work as it was performed.
In addition to the work described above, the contractor corrected an existing concrete column. This column was not originally built on a concrete footing, and began to move out of square and level. The contractor dug out sufficient space to pour a new concrete footing, and rebuilt the column properly.
Lastly, the contractor volunteered to winterize our home after the job was completed. He downplayed this as "only about 30 minutes of routine work," but this clearly showed his attention to detail and making sure our home was in the best condition possible when he left the site for the last time.”
