From the beginning quote up until the time of scheduling everything went extremely well. We were originally set to have the shed built the week of 9/15. Then due to rail and scheduling we were asked to move up the schedule. This was perfectly fine as our lawn equipment has been sitting outside since we moved. The guys building the shed did a great job. My one complaint with the crew is that one asked my wife to use the bathroom then proceeded to take a crap and stink up the whole lower floor. Not very professional!
My other complaint is with payment. During initial talks I was told I could pay via check, cash, or Credit Card. When the crew finished they immediately expected payment. Which is fine as the work was finished. The issue here is that it was 3:30 and I was still at work. I called the owner and went to give him my CC number and he proceeded to get a bit testy and indicated he no longer takes payment by CC. Then he calls Lowe's, who supplied the materials and asks them if I can pay them??? Needless to say, I transferred money to my wife's account and she cut them a check.
Overall, I would recommend and use Affordable Sheds again. I would not let them in my house to use the bathroom and I would double check what was accepted for payment before scheduling the work.

Working with Sunset was a pleasure. I had originally planned on getting our shed form one of the big box stores and decided I would stop by Sunset to see what they offered. After looking at their sheds it was clear they had a much better qulaity shed didn't cut corners. Then I spent some time looking at reviews and they had a stellar reputation for handling issues.
I often don't write reviews of companies during the sales phase as this is when people are at their best. It's when things don't go as planned when a company shows their metal. In this case, the Sunset team accidently placed the loft on the wrong side of the barn. When this was pointed out I was told I should call the office to schedule a time for them to come out and swich it. When I called the next day, they sent someone right over and handled it immediately. This type of service gives me confidence in their warranty.

was very timely in his arrival and work. Accomplished everything that I asked and pointed out a couple of things that I had not noticed, which I was grateful for. He was very clean in his work also, which I appreciated being that I own my own house cleaning business. I would like to strongly recommend him as he was very professional and nice to work with, and he takes great pride in his work.

Things started off fine, building process was a little bumpy but was getting done.
6 weeks into the process the shell of the addition was up and then NOTHING!
I could not get a hold of him and a couple weeks later he told me that he was sick and that he was shutting down his business.
I am now finishing the project on my own and having to fix some of the problems that he left me with.

up the original plans for the house and the SIP (Structural Insulated Panels) were ordered off of those drawings.

then built the frame of the house with these highly insulated wall pieces, making sure these walls had the correct runs to allow for electricity wiring and plumbing.

also installed all of the six super energy efficient windows, built the loft inside, installed the wood flooring and the wood wall paneling.

worked extremely well with the other contractors who had to work in tandem with him to make sure everything was right to install the solar hot water, solar air heat, solar electricity and the passive solar. This was all done in three weeks and everything was finished by the start of the fair. This was a major effort, with many, many very long days put in by

So far I haven't selected a company to build my garage, but it is unlikely that I will choose
East Lyme Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
. My overall impression of them is that they would probably do a decent job and be reasonably priced, as long as it is specifically within their wheelhouse.
I'll explain.
It took 4 months to get a response from my message to them through Angie's List. Apparently they had a personnel change which threw off their communications... After I did get a response from them, it took several more attempts to get a site visit scheduled for an estimate. They could tell I was very interested in getting the work done, so they accommodated me by squeezing me in on their lunch hour.
During their visit, they seemed knowledgeable about their proposed work and some of the process items. They did a good job promoting some of their signature items, like their heavily reinforced concrete foundation and the insulated garage doors.
However, I found their demeanor a little off-putting for being custom builders. Basically the impression they gave reminded me of

Ford. To paraphrase: I could have it built any way I wanted, as long as it followed their stock designs. I asked for brick facing (to match my house) and was told that they don't do that and that I wouldn't want it anyway, because it would be hard to match and too expensive. They would build it with their siding, and I could just have it ripped off later if I decided to get the brick! I can't see myself paying to build something that I would immediately need to remodel.
I asked for a metal roof and gutters, and again was told that they didn't do them and that I really didn't want them; afterall, if I had gutters, I'd have to do something with the water?!? FYI, I am aware that gutters aren't mystic vortexes that make water

into nothingness...
Anyway, after being told that each item I requested that deviated from their stock design was unavailable and that I really didn't want it, I have to question why they have "custom" in their name.
So like I said initially, I can't see myself using them, but somebody who is content with their limited amount of customization might find them a good quality/value.

The process was painless.

worked with my schedule to perform a preconstruction visit and establish a proposal. His worked with me to establish what work was needed. His background is extensive in construction, including a construction degree from UF.His pricing was very fair, and he was flexable to meet my schedule. His crews arrivied on-time and performed quality work. The crews were friendly and nice.

I called
East Lyme Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
after a friend told me about their services. My friend had his home painted in August and was very pleased with the quality of the work preformed. The owner,

, came out to my home to give me a free estimate approx. two days after I called him the first time. I was happy with the price and they started working the next week. They finish the roof in 4 days. They were very professional, polite, and kept the yard very clean! (you know how messy it can get when your getting a new shingle roof!!)

We are looking to replace a one-car garage with a two-car garage and called 4 companies for bids that came highly recommended on Angie's List. Of all the estimates I've had done over the past 10 years for our 100-year-old SW Minneapolis home, I've never had such a negative experience. I was stood up 3 different times by
East Lyme Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
at
East Lyme Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
(OK, I admit that I'm the fool for letting it go that far) to get an estimate for a new garage. The 1st time, he cancelled an hour before the appointment, but I let it slide and rescheduled.

set up the day and time for our 2nd appointment, but was a no-show and then called 24-hours later apologizing! I should've ended it right there but gave him a 3rd
East Lyme Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
, but he didn't show up at that scheduled time either! He called later to apologize saying he just got out of another appointment and could we reschedule. No, I'm done with excuses.
Bottom line: I can't trust a company with a $40,000-$50,000 building job if they can't show up on time to an estimate, let alone three.
