Home Building reviews in Sarasota


The contractor hired the cheapest trades and temp workers to work on this project which was a million dollar home. He manufactured invoices and essentially embezzled money. As an owner living in Canada, I had believed that

was a competent and honest contractor. He was not. He charged me for materials that he never bought, and added fictious jobs to my bills to maximize his income. He also had an on site supervisor that managed the jobs as best he could but who never really knew what

was billing.

also rarely showed up on the job site.
As a result of these practices I fired

and am currently

him in civil court and plan to charge him criminally as well.

We called to see if they would like to bid on a construction project. They asked for the plans. We sent the plans. The plans had another builders name on them so they said they could not legally use them. I was not aware of this legality as this is our 4th expansion and I have not heard of this before. However, I can understand laws may change and asked what needed to be done. We were told to get permission from the person who had done the original design work. So, we did. Our original designer/contractor was well aware that we wanted to receive 3 bids for the work. We called

back to let them know we had permission to send the plans to them and to see if they were interested in bidding on the project. I had not heard of

except through Angie's List (they had good reviews so I called them). We did not receive a return call. Our practice manager called again but they never returned our calls. We did not want to experience the same thing through the construction process so we did not try to call this company for a third time. We finally found and used a construction company that did not give us the same issues and whom we had used in the past.

The contractors sourced very professional and efficient laborers. Although the project was not completed by the date originally promised, overall the experience with the laborers used was good.
The downside was our experience with the lead female contractor was also moonlighting and sending inappropriate texts to my husband. I was shocked to see some overtly promiscuous and strong advances made in these texts. Prior to me finding out, she was walking around the site as if everything was "business as usual".
Knick, her father, was great in tackling issues with regard to permits and I have to say that was the biggest plus in this relationship. But I would heed warning to anyone getting involved in construction that you may want to consider Nickhole who was working after hours, not on completing the project, but ruining my family and marriage.

Excellent. Construction Process required extensive State-County-City approvals and oversight (required +30' of reinforced concrete pilings under and above ground). Construction took approximately 18 months. It is on an infill lot on Lido Key; Neighbors were very complementary about

has extensive custom building experience, but personally supervises the work and cares about the result. I would recommend and hire him again without hesitation.

We worked directly with the owner

who was a pleasure to work with. He went above and beyond what was expected by coordinating efforts with the building tenants to ensure the naturally disruptive nature of construction work was minimized, he was in constant communication with us, sharing cost-saving options and highlighting potential long-term improvements and considerations in design of our short-term objectives. He was on budget and a pleasure to work with. I very highly recommend

So far the experience has been great! All of the people we have worked with are experienced and excellent at their craft. The framers did a wonderful job, the electricians, plumbers, A/C people, tilers, carpenters, cabinet makers, etc are all top notch. Any time we have a question we can call and we always get it answered quickly. The whole process has been awesome and everyone has been very easy to work with. Most importantly,
