I have been pretty happy with him. He is going to give me an estimate to do some interior painting and carpet installation. I will continue to use him in the future.

He is excellent. On time, immaculate, but also has imagination and is highly skilled. Performed this work on his own and it was not actually
. He had to build a new structure in the living room, match the paint, etc.

Home Building reviews in Champaign

It pains me to write this review because I admired this contractor for a long time, but I cannot stay silent any longer. I followed
Champaign Home Builders Provider Name Locked
for three years, touring homes it built in Central Illinois. My wife and I were taken by their ranch-style homes, which we found perfectly suited to our tastes. In June 2008, I bought what I thought was our dream home (we had contractors previously build homes to our specifications in Virginia , California, and with another Central Illinois builder). The design and layout of the home
Champaign Home Builders Provider Name Locked
built was thoughtful and tastefully done, however, our experience has shown that the subcontractor work was subpar. Although
Champaign Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was the General Contractor, the ultimate responsibilities

with it. Hence the review.
Shortly after moving in June 2008, we started having problems with our water heater. Specifically, the water heater ran so hot that it began melting the plastic exhaust housing on the top of the unit (a definite fire hazard), which caused the unit to shut itself down every other day.

's response was to point us to the subcontractor for their action and wiped their hands clean. It took several years of replacement and failure before we finally gave up and installed a tankless water heater.
Our problems were not confined to that issue though. About 6 months into our ownership, our sump pump failed (thank goodness I had a back up installed). When I took a look at the sump pump, it looked like it had been used for years. It became obvious after having the pump replaced that the unit was not installed new.
A year into our ownership, our kitchen sink garbage disposer began leaking. After removing and inspecting it, I discovered the housing had been cracked and that someone had attempted to seal the crack with a substance that had since failed. The devious part is that the subcontractor installed the unit so that the crack was in the rear, virtually impossible to notice during an inspection.
As with any home, you don't notice minor issues until you live in the home. While this is to be expected, our experience with
Champaign Home Builders Provider Name Locked
has been unacceptable (i.e., wall switches that do not control anything; creaking floor boards, faucets not fasten tightly).
The final straw, which prompted the writing of this review is that the vinyl siding on our homes is starting to discolor in blotches that we have since confirmed was a product manufacturing defect that we expect will get resolved under warranty (we are currently undergoing the evaluation process to determine if the company that supplied the vinyl siding will honor our claim). I have since discovered that another homeowner who had an similar home built by
Champaign Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, had the same problem.
As I have previously noted,
Champaign Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is the 4th home we had built. It is by far the most expensive home we have purchased and the poorest in quality. It you decide to have
Champaign Home Builders Provider Name Locked
build your home after reading this review, then take the appropriate steps to protect your interests. However, I cannot recommend
