The lot I purchased was wooded and clearing started in early
2013. An issue was discovered that delayed the start of the project by three months.
provided a surveyor and took the lead in correcting the issues with no additional cost to me. the issued forced us to revise the house plan. The job finally began in early October 2013.
provides an in house decorator to help guide through the selection process. I threw a few curve balls by requesting some special interior features and changing some selections. The subs were all very accommodating and
allowed me to bring in one of my own subs. The entire crew was very professional. The process went as smoothly as it could have considering the build went into the worst winter we've seen in decades. Before the final walk through, I did a walk through of my own and noted several minor items.
caught them all and more. Because of the timing and severity of the winter the concrete patio cracked.
noted the issue -and will get a concrete crew back out when the weather allows to re-pour. In the few weeks following closing, crews have continued to correct the issues found in the walk through. Seems a little inconvenient, but that's the way it goes with a new build. I would highly recommend

I got his name from
Homes since they built the house and the wood is rotting in multiple places even though it has been maintained. He showed up the same day to look at the project and said he would get back to me with a quote. I got no response so I called him back and he said he would look at prices of materials and get back with me. He never did. I called him back and left another message. Still no response. A neighbor has had the same experience that also has rotting wood on a
Home.

The overall project was quite involved from what we originally started with.

worked with us to get us what we wanted. He came up with different ideas that gave us options as to how we wanted our new room and kitchen to look like. I think we spent more time waiting on inspectors than we did on anything else.

's crew was great! I have two cats and they were always mindful to make sure they did not get out and kept me informed what was going on with the different stages of the build. I appreciated that fact so I knew exactly what to expect. I would have to leave to take and pick up my grandchild from the bus stop and it did not bother me in the least leaving my house while they were here working. I would recommend

I came across these two when I was in the finishing stages of remodeling a home to rent out. I only wish that I had found them when I began. Herb and his brother
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
are always on time and in the best possible mood you would ever find. They give fair quotes and accurate quotes. Not once did they quote me for something and wind up charging me more. Their attention to detail in their work is AMAZING! Not even the simplest job is taken lightly. This is one of the few businesses that I have referred other people too. A friend of mine used them for a roof replacement. HE was ecstatic about how they did as well. I even received a $50 Red Lobster Gift Card in the mail from them a couple weeks after they did that job as a thank you for the referral! I love these guys and will continue to use them as long as I can.

We believe they performed unnecessary work to remove the baseboard and this added cost on the front and back end. Also they damaged wall board becuase the work was performed poorly by unskilled labor. Finally, their labor charges was extremely high and unjustified by the quality fo work. They had us over a barrel and took advantage of the situation.

In the early a.m. of June 1, 2013, Fort
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was getting 5.5" of rain. My basement alarm went off, and I began calling to get a service to prevent problems.
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
sent two young men who went back out and brought in a small submersible pump and hose, and left.
They mentioned that I was their fifth one that night and they had twelve more.
Although they said I would be contacted about the cleaning in a week, I rented a Rug Doctor etc. etc.
I never heard from them again until I was billed, on
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
1, 2013, for $414.48.
I immediately called, asking for an itemization of what the invoice listed as "Emergency water extraction." When I mentioned Angie's List the secretary was a little panicky and said she'd get right back to me.However, I did not hear from
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
again until the bill of August 1st:
It reads: "Our office must receive payment in our office for the outstanding invoice for the total of $413.48 no later than August 15, 2013, or we will be forced to turn this over to our attorney for collection. This will inrcease your bill as we will add late fees/interest of up to 18% of your total plus attorney fees.
I called
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
offices again, and the secretary no longer handles itemized invoices, but refers one directly to "the man who handles that, "
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, who is apparently the attorney handling the 18 people, for starters.. who were charged a minimum of $418.48 for a submersible pump, in and out, 20 minutes.

by At first, we were impressed with how quickly they were able to arrive when our sump pump failed, leaving our finished basement filled with 6 inches of water. After the initial service call, the servicemen showed up unannounced multiple times to perform minor/unnecessary tasks. When we no longer needed the equipment to dry out the basement, they were very difficult to reach resulting in extra rental charges. When I did finally reach someone to request the equipment to be picked up, I also requested a final bill for all the services. I should have known to be suspicious when the final bill left-contained only a brief explanation of the services performed and a total- so I called and requested an itemized bill for the services. Once I received the itemized bill, I compared it to the notes I made with each interaction I had with the company. The bill had a surplus of $200.00 in overcharges, so I called their estimator,
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. When I spoke with
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
of the overcharges, at first he tried to tell me he was giving me a deal. When I asked him how charging me for 6 days of equipment rental when I only had the equipment for 5 days is a deal, he proceeded to argue with me, but I held my ground and he finally agreed I was correct and revised the bill. The next overcharge was for one of their unannounced visits at an "after hours" charge.
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
did agree to change this to a regular hourly charge, but I was charged for 2 hours of work, when they were actually at our home for only 40 minutes-
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
said this was because there were 2 guys (one could have done the work-I argued this for awhile, but gave up). Additionally, when the equipment was picked up it took the 1 man less than 20 minutes and I was charged for 2 hours worth of work- after some rebuttal
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
revised this charge. When I asked questions about a couple of the other charges with the hopes to have a better understanding of what my minimal amount of insurance money was going towards,
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
replied, "The Insurance Company allows me to charge this." I then called my insurance company, which deiced to run a blind audit to help explain the charges. The audit came back that D.W.
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was over changing me almost $500.00 (on top of the $200.00 of overcharges
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
revised). My bill was finally closed, but if I wouldn't have checked it and questioned it, I would have over paid. Moral to this experience, if you are so desperate you call D.W.
Fort Wayne Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, document everything and double check all the charges.

Trusted the builder because they were the original builder of the home, we had no issues with them during that transaction. When we suffered from the fire, they were the first we thought of, as they built the home we thought they were the best option.
Our insurance company was more than generous in the funds for the rebuild, very specific details to each item/area and what was to be done in each area. IE, rewire entire house, re-plumbing the entire house, cleaning and sealing every stud that was exposed, generous funds were allotted for these tasks. It became clear early on that they were either cutting corners or not reading the details given for the tasks. We questioned the areas missed in wiring and cleaning/sealant. What was supposed to be a 4-6 month project became an over 8 month project.
Communications were the worst we have ever experienced. Too many corners were trying to be cut.
We had to spend many of our own personal hours going over figures to provide to them, weeks would pass before any response was made, then when a response came in (giving the impression it was being worked on) their calculations would be totally off or wrong, showing no effort was put into reading the adjusters figures.
We were given a
2 week window as to completion so that we could set up for an inspection with the mortgage company, so that the final funds could be released. No one from their company even bothered to show up for this inspection, as the house was clearly not ready for inspection, nor could it ever pass inspections.
All in ALL,, it took them 9 months to restore our home. They have built homes faster than this.
There was thought that the keys to the home could be kept from us until final payment. They had no ownership in the home, so trying to hold the keys for payment was construed as illegal.
We will also be filing a complaint with the Home Builders Association.
