"As someone seeking remodeling services I think the most important thing to know about
and his team is that they are honest timely, and good communicators.
" did everything he said he was going to do with us, and even a bit more. His team showed up at about the same time every day and worked when they said they would be working.
was always in touch throughout our project by text, email and in person. I never felt like I couldn't get a hold of my contractor, and always felt in the know.
was also flexible when, as will happen in an old two-flat, we discovered things that needed to be fixed before we moved on. During our work, we found that there was a leak under the basement stairs and that our supporting columns in the basement were rotting. Although all contractors like to stay on schedule
worked with us, to create solutions and get the necessary work done. I am so glad we know its fixed and done right! As first time renovators,
let us know what we needed up buy as the project progressed. The only thing I would have changed was to received a list ahead to time. All these things are in the estimate, but I think being new to this, we didn't really understand everything we had to buy, and sometimes found ourselves rushing to Home Depot and 10pm the night before things were needed. However, to be honest, I think we could have self-educated a bit more prior to starting, so that may be on us! I really like
's core team of workers. They are friendly, and always leave the place in good shape. Today, one of them even took a break to help me figure out a tile design for the bathtub! If we ever do this again we will definitely call
! I have listed to friends horror stories, and I feel we got really lucky!

"August 26th almost a month later, FBP finally shows up to layout the footers. August 27th, Footers are laid out and cut in the wrong place. The front footer and back footers were" off by over 12" causing them to have to re-pour which delayed the block work. Friday-9/12/2014 -
emailed that he wanted another draw. I said I would pay him another draw when some work was completed to justify it. Foundation masons started the week of 9/22, almost 8 weeks after we signed the contract. Friday-9/19/2014 -
emailed that he would like to pick up another check for $4,000. No block had been completed yet and all we had was a footer that was not fixed yet. Monday 9/22 - received an email from
that block would start tomorrow (job was supposed to be complete by now) Tuesday 9/23 -
emailed to say block guy was finishing another job and would be delayed until 9/24 Wed 9/24 - Block work began - 3 walls completed - masons ran out of block- they were 200 blocks short Friday 9/26 -
comes by for a $4000 draw which I pay. We are now into the project almost 11 weeks and I begin to worry they are stringing us along and using our money on another project. I ask for a copy of our lumber package receipt.
cannot produce it, and gets mad when I imply that he has not purchased it yet. He agreed to provide a receipt when he paid for the lumber. This was agreed to in our contract when he accepted $15,000 deposit to pay for it. Week of 9/29-10/3 - no work done.
emails to say he would communicate how he would finish our project on Monday Oct 6th wasting the entire week, claims FBP has internal problems. Wed Oct 1-
writes the following message of abandonment. " When we came by last Friday we were very shocked by your attitude towards us. Monday you apologized and we thought things might be okay and maybe you have had a bad day. Then I received a call from my Vendor asking If I had payed for the Lumber Package. This was very Embarrassing to us and seems to be a trust issue.
you have tried to control every part of this job and contract since the very beginning. We cannot let anyone control us because we have other jobs. I was very shocked to see all the concrete you had my subs put in your driveway. You cleaned out all the dirt from under the front footers which I ordered concrete for and you only poured small areas and put the rest In the drive. I feel because of your attitude and the fact that you have called my Vendors and my subs that we can no longer work together. You have about 9 yards of concrete In your drive that I've payed for. We will return all money owed to you after we come to an agreement on how much has been spent on this project.
will be getting all the bills together in the coming days and will contact you next week. Thanks,
" NOTE: I called the concrete vendor and was told they dumped about 3 yards of concrete in my driveway. This was waste left over after the first footer pour and the footer repair pour. October 10th- Another week has gone by and FBP has produced no record of total cost or expenses and no
releases. They have agreed to pay us $3500 with balance in 45 days. They have not suggested what that balance may be. Problems discovered: 1. Front Footer poured in wrong place and had to be repaired 2. Back Footer poured in wrong place and had to be repaired -FBP did not repair 3. Too much sand in the mortar causing it to be weak - 4. Block foundation walls have to be core filled since they are 6 ft tall - masons did not install rebar as required 5. Wood stakes and part of wood forms left in footers - see pic 6. Loose dirt put back in footer hole which I discovered and dug out. note -
confirms this in his email even though you cannot pour a footer on loose soil. 7.
discloses in an email he does not have the "cash" to refund our $15,000 lumber package ( indirectly confirming he spent our money on something else). He offers us an installment of $3500 to be paid on Friday Oct 10th with the balance in 45 days. He says he will email us a time to meet Friday. Today is Friday Oct 10th at 9:55 AM. I have not heard from him. His email on Oct 9th reads: "
, We just do not have that much cash on hand sorry the offer was not enough but It's the very best we can do. We won't to refund your money as quick as possible. I may have the money next week I never know If I do I would be glad to give it to you. Thanks
" We are glad FBP has finally agreed to pay us back, but to date we are drenched in puffery and delay. I still have a big muddy hole in my yard where my garage is supposed to be. Scheduling new contractors will put off our project for another month. BTW- FBP business address is 107 Confederate Dr, Suite 3,

The gentleman that came to take measurements and talk about options was unprofessional. He was more concerned about what his competitors were telling me than what he could do for me. He kept telling me what I would do to get discounts on my total price from him. (I just wanted a firm price.) He also obviously didn't listen to what I wanted either. The first estimate that was emailed to me had multiple line items of things that I didn't want and didn't include things that I had specifically asked for. I called and had them redo the estimate, but even then, it wasn't right. I emailed them to let them know I was going with someone else. He then called and pestered me about if I had signed anything yet and they could give me another discount. Even if these guys were the cheapest, I wouldn't have hired them.

At first it was going well - tile floor is the only thing I was happy with. He said the project should only take 3-4 weeks - I guess that would be true if he actually put in a full days work. He was good for showing up late and some days not at all or he would leave, I can only assume right after I left, because when I got home not to much was done. Spackle was dried up in clumps by my entry door on the wall and along the door frame, paint drops on the newly tiled floor, my electric box for the over the range microwave was not recessed into the wall instead it was literally inside the cabinet taking up space. He does not stick to his own contract the deal was $1500 down the rest upon completion, he asked me for an additional $1000 when he was 1/2 way done my husband said to give it to him so he gets it finished and gets gone. Well he got his $1000 and the next day when he couldn't be here (after he told me he would be here) for the granite counter-top install my husband fired him. We then had to hire another contractor, who thankfully, came in to literally correct all of his mistakes. The cabinets didn't line up correctly for the counter-top, recessing the electrical box for the microwave, never ran dishwasher electric.

With weather and scheduling we had to wait about 5 weeks to get started but they worked around our schedule and did an excellent job with removal, deck construction and clean up. Everyone was very professional and we are very happy with the new deck.

and his team did an outstanding job from start to finish. His quote came in about $7,000 under a competitor, so based on that and his Angie's List reviews we selected his team to finish our unfinished basement.
Hockessin Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
was an excellent communicator throughout the process, helping us with design ideas and making us comfortable that we all understood the plan the same way. His team was on time and extremely professional; they did an outstanding job cleaning up after themselves at all times (I left a treadmill in the basement, knowing it would get really dirty; they took great care to wrap it in plastic, and at the end of the project cleaned it off to the point that it was cleaner than when the project started). We had a few changes to the plan along the way - when we saw the lighting, we realized we'd need one more can light at the top of our stairs, and we asked them to build a built-in bookcase that wasn't part of the original plan.
Hockessin Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
's team handled the changes just fine, and worked them into the project without any issues (the bookcase looks great - they do excellent carpentry work). Along the way they also added nice touches to go beyond what we asked for. We had an old closet that we weren't going to bother redoing, but they repainted all the shelves without us even asking them to, and now it looks like a new closet. They also offered to paint the floor in our unfinished laundry area, which we took them up on, and
Hockessin Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
installed a backup sump pump for us. He gave an initial estimate of 4-6 weeks, which was in line with what others told us, but his crew finished in a little under three weeks, which stunned us, especially since they had added finishing touches on their own and we had asked for a few extras. I couldn't be happier with the job they did at a very competitive price, and we've already asked
Hockessin Basement Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
for quotes on a few other remodeling projects.

was very prompt and courteous in setting up our appointment, walking through our basement space with us, and then providing a plan and estimate for the work. We knew exactly what we wanted to do with the space, and from our discussion on that and the measurements he took,

created a drawing that represented exactly what we envisioned. He did a great job with everything and I had every confidence he could do the project well, but in the end his price was a fair bit higher than other quotes so we ended up going with another contractor.

The project was supposed to start on September 3rd and be finished by September 13. When September 13 came he did not show. I gave him the benefit of the doubt and he took advantage of it. He started the work on the 20th and then I did not hear from him for 3 days.Then he came for one day and disappeared again another couple of days. Eventually, I had to threaten to cancel the contract since he did not follow it whatsoever. I had a tenet ready to move into the house on October first and when I asked when the bathroom would be done he kept giving me the runaround. Also, he broke my storm door and refused to accept responsibility for doing so! Longer story short, the bathroom did not get completed until October 4 after the tenet moved in. He never communicated with me during the entire project. He caused a lot of added stress and frustration for no reason. Once he did finish he was very rude about getting the rest of his money and he tried to charge me more than what the contract stated!! I protested and finally received the contract price.

It's a shame because the bathroom did look great. However, other people can do the same thing within the time that they state. I would not recommend

! I will never use them again!!
