"I have pictures of him loading the shingles onto his truck. He never did come back for a walk through, had many mistakes. We are still battling with roof leaks. There is a ridge that was supposed to have a vent, doesn't have one. we've had to have people finish up the railing. Multiple leaks, drainage wasn't done correct and has taken on water. He didn't finish up closet areas or drywalling and we had to do some of this. He wasn't there, didn't finish things or do them how they were supposed to be. Flashing wasn't done right. They put holes in the chimney, which a contractor has told us is causing leaks. It's a mess! I've spent about 1/3 of the cost to build the house correcting his mistakes. The good part is that the plumber and electric gentleman have came back to correct issues. Someone else didn't come back because they told us they didn't get paid for the work. we've written him a bunch of letters. It ended up costing more than originally estimated, too."

"First project: While talking it seemed like he was trying to add a lot to the project. Did not hire him for that project.







Second project: He was suppose to provide an estimate and never did and never contacted me again.

came to our house for an estimate and were very understanding of what we wanted. We worked together to get the the system that we needed without causing a great disruption to our basement. They were very professional. The work was much less messy than we expected, and what mess there was, they cleaned up before they left. The work was done in just a few hours and the cost was actually a little less than was estimated. I have already told others of our experience and recommended their company.

"Every construction job has a life of its own. Overall everything went very well. There were a few things that needed to be done that we were not aware of when we started the job. For example we had a problem with our exiting roof and we also needed more insulation in the existing house. Our front porch was sagging as well.
