"Came the same day I called. There was a weather related issue with an existing project, making him immediately available. Showed up at correct time. Quickly diagnosed problem and explained" cost and benefits options. Had the pump I selected in his truck. Installed quickly. Works as desired now.

"This is an AMAZING company. We had a nightmare experience in building a new home in S.
. After 11 months, we had run out of time and consequently had to get" a temporary CO. We removed the deck construction from the plans but in order to get the TCO we had to show the city that we had contracted with a company to complete the deck within a specific timeframe.
&
came to our rescue. The pilings for the deck had been poured at the onset of the home construction, but the builder (Modern
Bay Homes) refused to share them or the deck design with
&
. He would only do so if he were paid $500. Within a matter of a few days,
&
had gotten the original plans from the city, acquired the necessary permits, made arrangements for the decking materials to be delivered (from
) and scheduled the job. We knew up front how long the job would take and what to expect. The crew was on site as scheduled (everyday at 8am sharp) and they went about the task of completing the deck in a very professional and focused manner. I was impressed how they really worked together as a well oiled team, not only enjoying their work, but also intent on making sure it was done correctly. When the job was completed, we were sorry to see the crew leave. The finished product is a "sight to behold" and the envy of everyone who sees it. Not only can you launch a boat from it (the underpinnings are so solid) but the workmanship is superb. The attention to detail is perfect. When the
City Inspector came, he too was very impressed and noted that he had not seen a job so professionally done before. We are so thankful that we did NOT have the original home builder complete the deck and now realize that this encounter with
&
, was a blessing for us. While the company name,
&
does not hint that they construct decks, we would strongly recommend that you contact this company if you are wanting a well constructed deck installed that will withstand the test of time.

"NO contact despite two calls, leaving information including dimensions for the concrete work and the type of fencing desired. NO ONE even bothered to call for an appointment.. Glad" we didn't get involved with this company if they treat potential customers this way. What do they do when they have the upfront money?

Did not use this provider because he did not respond to my Angies List internal email inquiry for a quote.He did contact me after I gave him a bad rating for not responding, and explained that he did not know that there was an internal Angies List email inquiry system. I did not use him or get a quote after that, because I had already gone with another solution.

They scheduled a date, they arrived as scheduled, worked hard and long to complete the job ahead of schedule. Every technical question was addressed quickly and professionally. I would recommend them to others. I actually recommend them to a canal neighbor last week. The only issue I had was is with backfill that was placed without compaction which has resulted in holes in yard.

This is probably the worst experience I have ever had with a residential contractor!
Key points, according to
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
Energy Lake Services' representative:
-
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
has been removed from
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
's list of approved contractors, because they do not adhere to
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
's rules for construction on the lake. don't use them if your project is on Lake
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
or other
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
lake!
- The type of seawall
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
builds - an "A" shaped wall of rip-rap with filter fabric and soil fill behind it - is not permitted by
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
on their lakes.

Chronology:
The contract was signed and 50% deposit check was given on 03.25.14 - "to hold the price of the rock."
After several inquiries, on Saturday, 05.24.14 (week 8) I received a phone call out of the blue that a truck with the first load of rock would arrive in about 5 minutes. One or 2 truckloads per day of rock or dirt were delivered over a number of days..
On Tuesday, 06.04.14 (week 10) two men and a backhoe arrived (unannounced) to start the work. They worked half a day.
Work continued, 2 or 3 days a week typically for 2 to 4 hours a day, though 06.27.14 (week 13).
On Friday, 06.20.14, Mecklenburg Water Quality representatives arrived by boat and told
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
' men to stop work because they did not have the required permits. On Monday, 06.23.14 (week 13), a Mecklenburg Water Quality representative came to my door to tell me that I could be required to do some $15,000 in remediation, since my shoreline was disturbed without permits.
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
' men were working, even though they had been directed not to. Since they were here, I got them and the Water Quality man together and asked them to work out a solution that would not stop the work for a month or more (the time it takes to get the permits) and would not require the remediation. After an hour of phone calls back and forth, it was agreed that
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
could finish their work, remediation would not be required, and
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
would immediately apply for the permits.
On Monday, 06.23.14,
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
said they would be finished on Friday 06.27.14 (week 13) and wanted the final check. I walked the job with the foreman on that Friday and pointed out several substantial areas that were not finished. On Saturday 06.28.14, I received a virulent, ranting voice message from
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
, to which I replied with a text message correcting his stated "facts" and objecting to the unprofessional attitude of his voice message. On Tuesday, 07.01.14 (week 14)
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
called in a much more sane frame of mind and said they would finish the work the next day. They came and did a little work. I again noted the areas that were incomplete, but they insisted they would do no more work.
The rock seawall itself appears to be well built, but there are substantial deficiencies that remain:
- The soil used to fill behind the seawall is full of chunks of rock, many as large as softballs, that would severely damage a lawnmower blade. I spent one very hot day raking the areas to try to remove the worst of the rocks before seeding, but more keep floating to the surface.
- The "finish" grading is irregular, with several areas that pond, etc. The "before" grading sloped gradually down to the seawall. Now it slopes down and then back up to the seawall.
- The soil used is of such poor quality that grass will not grow in it After 6 weeks, the grass I had planted is less than 1/2 inch high, even with daily watering. My budget is depleted for now, but I hope to be able to have a
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
of topsoil spread over the area, graded to the proper slopes.
- The north end of the seawall terminates at a beach. The seawall termination was to match that of my neighbor, which
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
built many years ago. It doesn't.
An overriding problem with
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
is
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
' refusal to communicate with his customers. He has serious anger management issues. He completely failed to keep this client informed of what was going on - trucks, workers and equipment came and went at random times, and didn't showup for days on end. They said they would be finished "tomorrow" and then didn't show up for days. The standard excuse was always the weather, which was usually bogus. The workers were easy to get along with and seemed to know what they were doing, but I don't believe
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
has set foot on the property since we signed the contract. According to his reputation (and Angies' List reviews) he knows how to build seawalls, but I believe his motorsports business is his first priority. His slipshod management and unprofessional conduct make working with him frustratingly difficult.
On Thursday 08.21.14 (week 21), a representative of
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
Energy Lake Services showed up at my door, saying he was reviewing "my" permit application and needed to see the project. He showed me the application, which I had not seen before, and I noted that my signature had been forged twice. He said the project would not have been approved if
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
had applied for the permit before construction, but since it was now complete,
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
would not require me to remove it. I told him that
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
had refused to apply for the permit before starting, and now I knew why.
I am disappointed, to put it mildly, that this project turned out so badly in view of the all-A reviews on Angie's List. I note that the last review was almost 2 years ago, so I can only suppose that Mr.
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
has run things into the ground over that time period.

Liberty was great. Very punctual both at the time of the estimate and service. I requested to have the wall in prior to August and
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
made it happen. The wall came out great. Not only did he suggest to run a drainage pipe (which some other landscapers tried avoiding) but leveled off the rest of my patio so that the
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
of the patio met the earth and reseeded all disturbed areas. I'll
be calling them in the spring for my front yard. I usually forget to leave feedback, but they did such a terrific job, I had to make sure I followed up with a positive one. Can't recommend enough.

does a great job with cutting the lawn and weekly cleanup. They are professional, reliable and conscientious. They are however a bit expensive, but I file this under "you get what you pay for". We have had cheaper service providers with problems.

Their guy (
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
) came out and was very nice and did a good job listening to what I wanted done, but their price was double what I received from other companies. The driveway was quoted at about $28,000 from Kings. I have a quote from a brick paver co for $15,000. Another quote from someone else was $13,900. They were all using unilock pavers. I sent an email and thanked
Piedmont Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
for his time and told him his quote was almost double. He emailed back to say that was unusual but he couldn't do anything about the cost. I wouldn't use them again just because of their prices.

Set up an appointment date and kept it. Said that he would get back to us with an estimate in a couple days and he did just that. Very nice guy, professional, and answered all our questions. Even offered his opinions and advice on the project which were all great.
