Unlike Lawngevity, we actually saw
's crew do the work they promised. At the end of the day, you could hardly tell they had been 10 feet down into our driveway. The sod lines and the few pictures we took were the only evidence. They did a great job.
Even though it has only been a month since they've performed the repairs, we are confident in his work. He also had a more realistic 1 year warranty. Lifetime warranties are often too good to be true.

I purchased a home lot from this company 10 years ago and have lived here quite happily until this year. The builder, Zillich Interiors built a home on a low lying lot up the street from us. The lot was very marshy and a pond for most of the year and would hold large amounts of water when it rained.
After building the new home it would flood the yard and home. This happened at least 3 times over the course of 10 months. The companies remedy for this was to dig a deep trench through the property and across the next property allowing the water to empty out into the street instead of the homes yard. This sent huge amounts of water into the street during heavy rains and caused the street and neighbors yards and properties to flood extensively.
When Mr Zillich was called about this after a heavy rain in May of 2014 he became very hostile, told us to not call him back and hung up on me.
I did not have any interactions with him again until after another heavy rain in the end of June which flooded the street, stranded a motorist and flooded my yard. I saw him in early
adding a large pump in addition to the trench to send even more water down the road. When I tried to speak with him he became very hostile and began pushing me and hitting me in the chest. I asked him how much water he was going to send down the hill and he replied "All of it!" what are you going to do about it and continued to push and hit me some more telling me to hit him.
As of this date the property still has a deep trench and large pump that empties water into the street and floods the neighborhood during heavy rain.
I can't believe I gave this man and his company 100k of my money to live here.
Buyer and/or home builder BEWARE!

After a few years I still love this shower and the nice work done. Mr.

and his son have done work for us over the past 20 or so years. We have never been disappointed. He worked with me to choose the tile and make sure I was happy with the end result.

original projects went well- not perfect but acceptable- minor issues included sections missed when painting, railing in back not stable.
reasonable satisfaction and good price
Elwood Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to more projects- the drywall was okay- minor issues- baseboards not removed so imperfect transition of drywall to baseboard including overhang of drywall. drywall has developed seams showing through.
bathroom remodel went okay- however a few months later- discover/realized that latex sealer?caulk was used allowing water to escape from shower into adjacent areas to develop mold. also discovered i am allergic to mold.
snow blockers/diverters came off from snow the following winter.
The crew was nice but many were clearly not experienced. radio was quite loud at times. behind my shed was used as a toilet- i was advised by my neighbor that a man had been peeing back there. crew was critical of employer at times.
when billed (over phone) for the last of the work some time later after the snow diverters came off the roof and the mold discovered- i advised i would not pay.
did not hear anything for somewhere around a year when i received a written bill, the next day or two i received a collections bill- i advised the above and have heard no more.

I called
Elwood Home Builders Provider Name Locked
on a monday because of a leak in the roof at my grandmother's home. I spoke with
Elwood Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, whom was very nice on the phone. He came out on wednesday to do the free roof inspection and estimate. I received the estimate the next day via email. We have had many issues with this one particular spot on the roof the continues to leak over the years, we have had 3 different roofing companies out to the house to fix this problem in just the last year and a half --- the last one costing us about $900. We were very pleased with the estimate price provided to us, I called him back immediately to start work that following Monday. He did a beautiful, neat, and quick repair job. We have had about 3-4 big storms since then and the new repair job is holding up wonderfully!! We are very happy with the results. I would use this company again in the future and would definitely recommend to a friend.

Tradewind built our custom home 5 years ago.
Elwood Home Builders Provider Name Locked
(the owner), came by our house to look at an unrelated project we were completing. While here, he noticed an exterior beam that looked like it had some rot in it. He sent his carpenter over to inspect all the beams in both the front and back of the house. Indeed, there was quite a bit of damage to several beams.
Elwood Home Builders Provider Name Locked
had to special order a 26 foot long pressure treated beam. The rest of the repairs were able to be completed using marine grade, pressure treated wood.
His crew of three men worked about 7 days replacing all the damaged wood. It was a big job. They had to erect temporary supports while replacing the huge beams. All this while working on scaffolding. Part of our metal roof had to be removed to get to the wood underneath. They were mindful to prime all ends and joints of the new wood before installing it. They reset flashing and added additional bolts.
While they were working in the back, it began to rain. They even cleaned our gutters!
The only wait time I had was while the 26 foot long beam was being cut, prepared and shipped.

said that would take several weeks once it was ordered. I put it on my calendar to give him a call 4 weeks out and he called me first to schedule the work.
My husband is knowledgeable about building, carpentry and painting.

's crew included him in any conversations about procedure.
They cleaned up their work site at the end of every day. They took a very short time for lunch. In fact, I never even saw them take a break!
It may be a small matter to some, but I appreciated that they were non-smokers and didn't have loud music blaring all day.
I will be using Tradewind again!

I own a business and cashed almost $2700 in checks for his workers and
they were all returned as insufficient fundsin 2013. I have called many
times and everytime some excuse. I am turning the checks over to the D.
A. in MS to help me collect and maybe even put these con men in jail.
They are also NOT licensed contractors in MS so whatever you do, don't use this company.

We got a referral for this group, had them out to quote the job, agreed on the price and timeline, then they became inaccessible. They stopped returning phone calls, emails, etc. We were supposed to start in one week, and three weeks later, had to start all over. Our advice... avoid wasting your time.

Everything went very well. The people from
Elwood Home Builders Provider Name Locked
were professional, punctual and courteous. The adjuster worked with our insurance adjuster to make sure we received the benefits we were entitled to and was very respectful with our insurance agent. The people from AFR were quick in moving our items and diligent to make sure that nothing was damaged. The workers from

did a great job on the hardwood and were able to remove our existing granite carefully to reinstall it once the cabinet repairs were done. I was really dreading this experience but it went very well. I would recommend them and use them again in the future.
