I was contacted by
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
via telephone and offered a "complimentary annual inspection". They had done work at my home previously. I agreed and the inspection took place on 7/22 by
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
Freeman.
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
told me that I had a leak, that there was significant water under my house and that the repair was urgent. In addition to the photograph of a leaking galvanized elbow pipe that he showed me he also showed me photos of five piers that he said were rusted and required replacement. He recommended all plastic pier bottoms instead of the very heavy wood that was on top of plastic sheeting. He also strongly recommended that all the sheeting be removed so that the area would "dry faster". He prepared an agreement for $1355 for the replacement of five piers and installation of 31 plastic pads.

said that the leaking elbow could be replaced inexpensively but that
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
would not guarantee that work unless I also had the entire water main replaced. The price for the job he described as including concrete demo and replacement, as well as a potential for siding demo was $2,000.
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
described the concrete demo to me in detail explaining how it would not match perfectly but that it could be completed in one day requiring most likely two men. He said the work would be guaranteed for a year and that it would be inspected every six months. On

28th
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
arrived with a helper to do the work. The first thing he said to me was that the description of the work, the concrete demo wasn't clear and did I know about it. I asked him if he had photos and he did. I showed him the agreement, he made a phone call and when he returned I asked about it and he said there was no concrete work, none.

asked me why I wanted all the plastic pulled from under my house. It was written on the agreement that I wanted it pulled. I told him that
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
recommended it as a way to dry out the water under the house.
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
told me that it was always better to have the plastic there. I felt confused because it was not clear to me if
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
didn't want to do the work or if
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
had proposed something that was not the case as he had in the demo of nonexistent concrete. Finally, I agreed to have only the middle section of plastic removed even though I'm still confused about this matter. Frankly, I think I was better off with the plastic in place. Prior to having this work done, I had asked
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
if he would return and inspect the work their staff executed. He agreed and returned on
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
30 with his two small children. He took them under my house! Although I didn't want to challenge him in front of his children I did tell him that I was disturbed by the price and the fact that there was no concrete work to be done at all. He did not give a reply but told me how great all the work was and then revealed that the galvanized pipe, the elbow pipe that leaked was replaced with a stainless steel flex line, not a pipe! I told him that I was very dissatisfied with that and would not have agreed; I didn't pay $2000 for two feet of copper pipe and a flex line! I called
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
to complain and was assured that
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
or
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
would call me back. No call. Then the main leaked substantially. On Saturday
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
came and made the repair so now I have about 12 seams on the main. It has stopped leaking. I had a plumber come to do a pressure test and it held. I asked for an estimate of what that work would have cost from that company and it was less than half of what I paid. I did not get a senior discount, that is for sure.
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
wrote up an agreement for work that was not required; they had to know it was not required because their own staff recognized that upon arrival. They charged me an outrageous price and despite two phone calls and two emails, they have not replied to my complaint. I want half the money I paid for the main back and I want 25% senior discount on the entire outrageously priced work too. Beware, beware, beware!

This business responded promptly to all of our questions concerning the replacement of our doors and the materials best suited for their construction. To begin with let me say that my wife and I have a number of items needing replacement in our 22 year old Double Wide. The owner came out to our house and measured our doors and windows while also discussing a large stoop or small deck needed out back. Later that afternoon he called with the two estimates, one for the doors and one for the windows, so we could decide the best route to take in their replacement. By the way, I was not charged a cent for the appraisals!
We began we the replacement of the two doors. The two gentlemen sent out to do the work could not have been better.......Just one instance of how these guys went above and beyond. I bought two door knob and deadbolt sets at Lowes Home Improvement. Naturally one of the sets I purchased was incorrect which was not discovered until the job was near completion. Since I am disabled I do not drive and I knew I would have to go out that evening with my wife after she got home from work to replace the wrong lock. Then I would have to install the knob and deadbolt myself. Well, I was so very wrong! The guys took my wrong parts repackaged them, returned and exchanged them on their own time. This was nearly an hour round trip, yet they did it, drove back and installed the correct parts without me ever asking them for their much needed help. How great was this service!!!!!!!
Thank you guys so much,

I had many issues that were not
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
's fault that got us off to a late start. But he stayed with me thru my ups and
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
. Finally we made in together and things were running great until I had my 3rd Power Surge! When
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
's crew was moving the dryer and the lights dimmed and brightened. He called me immediately and the job was stopped. The next day he was here with me along with his crew explaining everything to the electrician and the power company. Finally every thing was fixed and away they went. I felt very comfortable working with and around all of his crew. They are very professional and know their work. I could call
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
any time within reason, and he always called me back in a timely manner. Something that you can count on with
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
. He also keeps on top of his crew and they work well alone. I really am Loving the work they in my home and can't wait to show it off. I will definitely have them back. I would recommend them for any job. They do fantastic work. One problem....they refused to follow me to Arkansas to work on my home there!!

Friendly workers, cleans up after themselves. They also have been helpful working around our crazy work schedules. If it's outside work they start on it even if we are not there yet.

purchased a house a few years ago which was under some definite distress and waived inspection so I was expecting some issues.
However, the day after I purchased the house I received a code violation that my huge retaining wall needed to be inspected by an engineer.
Rich showed up and did determine that the wall was about to fall, and i don't doubt that it was..
He drafted me new plans which were carried out by a professional excavator and ended up costing me about 12,000 dollars.. without these plans it would not have been possible to get the job done.
Rich helped me go back and forth with code to get the project finally approved.. there were some real sticklers in the code office which you could tell just wanted to put in their 2 cents and Rich was able to "put them in their place" in a professional and prompt manner and allowed us to get the project going.
Rich is not only a home inspector, but a legit engineer who understands the real math behind these problems and can tell you exactly what needs to happen in order to hold the weight and other factors which most of us would never understand. Many people can come inspect your home and tell you whats wrong, but not many of them have the certification to give you stamped plans to get the process actually completed.
I would use Rich again in a heartbeat if I have other problems.
What prompted me to write this review years later was that I have some structural issues in a new house I bought and Rich was very informative to me over the phone and really helped me get a project going.. and he had no reason to do this other than he is a good guy.
So I just want to come here and encourage you all to give him a shot if you need a home inspection and plans.

Showed up on time --- kept with in agreed upon financial limits, cleaned up work area after job complete. Owner of the company did the work himself along with help from daughter, both looked professional and were very pleasant and professional to work with. He did not try to up sell anything, he did exactly what he said he was going to do; we both agreed to adding a extra hand rail for my mother after the job was started so there was an extra added expense of $45.00 --- but I was advised of a possible increased cost before the job was done. THE JOB WAS EXCELLENT!!! Steps are sturdy and secure and look great --- very pleased. Already planning on hiring him again in the fall to do some remodel work in our kitchen.

was trustworthy, honest and delivered on his promises. Because of the sheer size of the project he would occasionally forget a detail, but when reminded he would remedy it fast. Despite the fact this was a massive project he was meticulous in maintaining the work area and carefully cleaned up each day to prevent dust, clutter, and residue from escaping elsewhere into the house.
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
represents the best of any contractor I have worked with over many years. When using subs he was there supervising, he insured they did quality work and most importantly performed the work when promised to not negatively impact the project timeline.
He is careful with his clients time and money. When surprises occurred such as an uneven floor, he consulted with the homeowner, laid out options and then fixed it fast drawing on his huge stable of quality subcontractors.

has performed similarly for a half dozen close friends. In each case their experience and mine were the same.

The roof went on real fast. We found out through having to get it repaired the panels weren't installed properly with 1 x 4 laths just cheap 7/16th OSB. When serviceman walked on it they crushed the metal rib as it had no support. Buyer beware has been known to violate building codes. Before we knew. He was to insulate roof and no insulation anywhere when old roof removed and redone.

Bottom line: I do not recommend that you use UMHS. You are taking a real
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
. Overall this was a bad experience and I cannot recommend UMHS. What started well, ended bad. Before getting into details, basically the problem is they make a lot of mistakes and when things did not go well they became confrontational and blamed the customer for whatever the problem. In the end, after over two months, it just was not worth the hassle. They might read this and think we are just picky or complaining. It is an old mobile home. We didn't expect perfection, but we did expect basic tasks to be done right. They need to make some fundamental changes in the way they work. If they do, they could potentially be a good company.

The owner of the company,
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
, is severely lacking in customer service or communication skills. We didn't meet her until the end of the project when there was a problem with the counters. One minute you think you are having a reasonable conversation with her and the next minute she launches into attacks and literally will not listen and tries to talk you down or just walks away. She is very confrontational.

For most of the project our contact was Ric Singer. And, for most of the project he was nice, easy to work with and seemed to want to do a good job. Sometimes he would do extra stuff that he really didn't have to, but wanted to make it nice. The problem was that so many things were simply done wrong. He would leave his guys alone and they would find something to mess up such as a terrible paint job that had to be done twice, botched drywall, or trim that obviously wasn't in right. They came to us when installing the can lights to see if we had any electrical wire. Really? Very few things were done right the first time.

One mistake that is still a problem is that he bought and installed a bypass shower door for a 59" opening, but the mobile home shower opening is a smaller nonstandard 52". He would never admit that he bought the wrong size. Since the sliding doors are too big you could barely fit into the shower. He said we would not be happy with the kind made for mobile homes and that we had told him the tiny opening was ok. Not true, but, we worked with him (should have just told him to remove it from the start) because he seemed to be really trying to get something nice that would match the fixtures, etc and he was going to make it right. While he bought a good brand, I did my own research and found that there were several manufacturers that made a quality door that was the right size. I think he just didn't do his homework. He just bought what he found at Home Depot. Then the guys he had doing the installation were left on their own and really didn't know what they were doing. It had be be installed three times and one of the doors still isn't in right. Anyway, we also needed to change the handle on the door so you could slide it open all the way. Also they left a mess of excess caulk in some places and totally missed the caulk in other places. Now they are gone.
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
said it would take 4-6 weeks to get the needed part for the handle. I haven't seen anything. I called the manufacturer today and they have it in stock and we will receive it in 3-5 business days for free. By the way,
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
did mail us what she supposed was the warranty (we wrote that into the contract). What she actually sent was just the print out of the product from the Home Depot web site that said there is a warranty. The print out wasn't even for the right brand of shower door. That's what I'm talking about.


But, one of the biggest mistakes (besides his lack of oversight) was his own mistake with the counters. This was the mistake that in the end caused the most confrontation. There were two counters being replaced. We specified in our contract that they be solid surface. Ric looked for days and couldn't find anything that was in his budget. Unfortunately for him, he never shared his supposed budget with us before he gave us a lump sum price to do the work and signed a contract. Now he wanted to charge us extra. We would not accept that, but what we did was go look and find the least expensive acceptable solid surface counter. It was the bottom category at Home Depot. Ric finally got the counters on order. We asked him repeatedly to check the measurements and get the holes correct for the faucets that we were supplying. But when the counters were delivered and the holes for the faucets cut right there at the house with the faucets sitting right there in their box... guess what? That's right, the holes were drilled in the wrong place. They were too close to the back and you couldn't pull up the lever for the pop up stopper. He didn't say anything, but, when we pointed out the problem he became confrontational. What did I want him to do? Replace the counters and spend another $1200? (People can get mean when money is involved). No, I wanted the faucet to work the way it was supposed to. That is when
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
got involved. She and Ric met with us at the house and right away she came at my 87 year old father-in-law so aggressive and disrespectfully that I could not imagine ever working with her again. Eventually as she learned the facts she calmed a bit. In the end, we (not UMHS) found a solution that saved replacing the counters.
Now all
Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
wanted was to get out of there. She did some of the remaining work and fixes but then refused to fix or clean anything else. We were tired of them and paid them the original contract amount, nothing more, and moved on. Since then we have disposed of the old counter they left behind, been cleaning up all the excess drywall mud, tile grout, paint splatters, chipped mirrors, messed up quarter round, and trying to fix the shower door.

Arcadia Modular Home Remodeling Companies Provider Name Locked
is just not worth all the hassle. Hopefully, they take some of this to heart and make changes. In the meantime, I suggest you find a different contractor.
