I had called Mr.
Farmington Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to look at a section of my roof that had been leaking. After inspecting it, he informed me that the entire section of roof had been installed incorrectly, and that it needed to be replaced. His estimate was 1500.00.
He performed the service and the roof seemed fine for several months, but only because we did not have any hard rains. Once we did, the roof began to leak, BADLY, in several different places.
have attempted to contact Mr.
Farmington Home Builders Provider Name Locked
a dozen times over a period of several weeks, and I cannot get him to return my calls. His voicemail appears to be full.
I am beyond frustrated, as I am not only out the 1500.00, but because of the additional expense of repairing my ceiling when the rain has poured in at times.

There was a lack of attention of details.
The roof job was good.
A strap for a side walled chimney had to be removed to preform the work.
The strap was not reattached when done.
Tarps were put down to catch the debris.
No magnet was used in by the

More than a 5

don't HIRE THESE GUYS
I found out when I tried to get them to fix their massive mistakes that one was an electrician and the other a cabinet maker.
I originally hired them to completely finish my basement that was water damaged from a broken water line. They said they could only work on weekends (no problem for me), they also said the work on million dollar houses.
A few days before they came they called and said they needed a cashiers check because they needed the money immediately (that should have been my first clue) I did not have the money in a local account and told them it would be the next Wednesday before I could get the money into my local account for a cashiers check, I had the money in my regular checking account in another state and could write a personal check to them, but they insisted on a cashiers check so I had to borrow money from my mother to get the check. They also said they needed half the so just divide the quote in half. I told them the quote included the material and I was too provide the material so how much did they allow for material, so that I could subtract material out and he did not know so he just came up with a number out of his head and told me to get the check for $6,843. this was all before they even came to my house. I told them I wanted a contract before they started but when they showed up they left the contract in the car and would get it for me latter (this should have been my second clue). Half way thru the day they brought in the contract the was for $13,000 (less than he told me) and I only needed to pay him $6,500 but the check was already made out for $343 more and in his name and could not be changed (of course he took it and said they would subtract the overage from the remaining balance. He then told me they needed the check before they finished on Saturday not Sunday after they finished the first half. They went out for lunch and tried to cash the check but all the banks were closed so they had to wait till Monday anyway.
They finished the framing on Sunday morning. When I got home from church later that day and went downstairs there was several things wrong. The bedroom doors were the wrong width (trailer size) and no support over the doors. The 2x4's touched the cinder block wall in several places, a big no no. They put the framing around the heat air ducts in as if they were building a tank. The framing around the 2 support post was only attached on top and when I leaned against them they moved (they first wanted to remove the post completely but I informed them they supported the whole upstairs) They did not put support for the upper kitchen cabinets. They framed over a window as if I was not going to use the window (in a basement with limited outside light). They did not support over the doors for the closets which I told them I was going to use hanging fan fold doors on which weigh is quite a bit more than normal closet doors. They didn't even frame out one of the closets. I told them to just normal frame under my stairs for drywall, and the cabinet maker took several hours making it ready for the shelves and drawers I told them I was going to do myself latter, when I'm ready to do my work I'll have to rip his all out. We had to redo the doors and the duct work framing, redo the window and upper kitchen cabinet braces. redo the water pipe box, redo the post covers.
Wow so much more they did wrong. It would take a book to tell you everything. AGAIN don't HIRE THESE GUYS.

and his expert crew handled all phases of construction except electrical, gutters, and the removal of a tree.

prepped the site (removed the stump, bought in fill dirt, built the slab form), constructed the garage, painted it to match the house, and configured the driveway. The quality and speed of the work was top notch in every respect.

worked closely with us on the design and was able to make adjustments along the way. His bid was among the lowest we received.

is all business, and a great person to work with. He showed up right on time, and listened to everything I needed to have done. At that point he gave additional recommendations as to how things would best be accomplished. He provided me with a quote within 24 hours, which was 6 days faster than the other 2 companies I had called. In the end, we decided to use another company based on a lower price and immediate start date, this was in no way a reflection of LG Home Improvements. I have saved

This contractor did an excellent job. The price was reasonable and they were very prompt. They came when they said. The whole job took 4 1/2 days. I was especially impressed with the sub-contractor, Sommercraft construction. His employees were very professional and polite. They were also very tidy. They cleaned up the property every day even though the job was not finished. The house looks beautiful.

He is always at the job site with his workers and he always informs me about next steps so I have enough time to consider designs and select materials. He also works with me for my kitchen and bathroom designs which could be a big headache for me without his help. I feel it is almost hassle free even though it is a BIG project !

On 9/10/14
Farmington Home Builders Provider Name Locked
from Blue Print sent his sub contractors and the work started. On 9/15/14 I received a bill for completed work which said "Thank you,
Farmington Home Builders Provider Name Locked
" - It came by email. The bill had an additional $395.00 for the dumpster. I reminded him of his quote he had provided by email. He tried to come up with some excuse that I agreed to pay for the dumpster over the phone, but phone records prove I didn't speak with him until 3 days after he emailed me his quote. He was literally within a few minutes of being approved for the sheet rock and insulation bid and release of funds from my mortgage company. (Another $7,500) We spoke the morning prior to getting the bill and he never mentioned anything issues. His bill clearly never indicated any issues either . Up until his bill and me seeing my house, he was very nice as were his sub contractors. There was no indication from anyone that I would ever expect what was about to come.
When I went to check my house, there was a huge hole in my floor, one wall was still sheet rocked, one room had the full ceiling and a 2nd had a large partial ceiling, nails and screws were still in the studs, there was still insulation throughout many portions of the house, there was about a 1/2 dumpster of junk in my driveway and blocking my sidewalk to my backdoor - which was the only usable door. The doors, some cabinets, etc. were still in the house, there was debris and insulation all over the floors in every room, gas fireplace was not removed and the list goes on. Of course there was not any Ozone or seal coat even started. Because he claimed his work was complete, I scheduled my next two contractors to do their separate jobs. Both showed up and neither could get started due to all the work that

S. from Blue Print left unfinished. Evidently he does not have respect for others in the construction profession either. This also delayed the project. I did not receive any explanation why this happened. I just a snotty email stating "Why are you venting we are done, move on" after emailing him when I got back to a computer after seeing my home. I can only assume this also means he is not expecting any payment. The payment was less than 24 hours away until I saw my house (minus the dumpster fee) Again, my house was "finished" per
Farmington Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and I received the bill prior to bringing up the dumpster. BTW my house is less than 900 SF, only six rooms and a 70 mile RT from where I am staying. Anyone who wants to see the emails, phone records, pictures and videos of this man who was apparently trying to defraud me and my insurance company, I have it all!

My son was in a tragic car accident paralyzed from chest down . During season they put other jobs aside to put a shower in and make it handicap accessible. They put in a ramp to make it easy for him to get into the bathroom. The bathroom came out beautiful, which he loved. They put a door in his bedroom for easy access that was not even included with what we originally wanted. They asked him for advice and his opinion to make him feel included in the process. I cannot thank them enough for the fantastic job they did and the consideration they gave my son. They became like family. I would hope and recommend them to everyone!! We felt very lucky. Thank you
