Arcadia Mobile Home Remodeling Articles
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,
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.
We had already purchased the AC unit & just needed to move it from one 5th wheel to another. The breaker box had been jury rigged by another company who were nothing but charlatans. They have since been banned from the Air Force base.
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.
The owner of the company,
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.
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
