"Extremely Satisfied with the Quality and professionalism. Job was finished as promised.
Honest and Dependable work from start to finish.

"My overall experience with
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
as my contractor was great in all aspects. The only downside was that it took longer for completion as
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
does not have a crew. However, this is more than offset by the fact that he is trustworthy and does quality work and is not subcontracting out to others that may not have his expertise and/or standards.

"The building was order on 5/15/12. Fifty six days later the building was started on 7/11/12 and halted by the city of Lafayette on 7/13/12 because
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
did not obtain a permit which the salesman Mr.
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
told me at the time I ordered the building, 5/15/12, he would obtain a permit. I called him when the crew arrived and informed him the crew did not have the permit. He told me he didn't get the permit but to let the crew start and he would get the permit. He did not get the permit and the city shut down the contruction of the building. The
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
building contract states in two places that they would not start or order material for the building until a permit was sent to them. Since Mr.
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
said he was getting the permit and the material arrived I assumed he had the permit.
That was the first of many problems and
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
.
After weeks of hearing his
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
that he was going to get the permit, I went and it took me two days the clear up the confusion at the permit office and I had to pay a fine which made the permit double what it would have been. I finally got the permit on 7/24/12 and
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was notified by email from the permit office that the permit had been issued and the crew did not arrive until 7/27/12. Mr.
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
had 56 days to get the permit to began with and when he didn't he lied about going to get the permit for almost two weeks and if I had not gone to get the permit my building would still be unfinished. I have the recorded conversation on my cell phone and the owner of the company Mr.
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
told me I was lying, that Mr.
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
did not say he was going to get the permit. These are bottom feeding people.
During the time the construction of the building was halted it rain several times and the wood on the cheap doors molded up.
I ordered the building with 6" over hangs all around, I got 2" over hangs and now I have to get gutter for the patio portion of the building because the rain splashes on the cement.
I ordered the building with metal doors and door frames with no less than ANSI 2 door knobs and dead bolts. He bought the cheapest doors and door knobs all keyed different and no dead bolts. I have three personnel doors. Now I have to buy the door knobs and dead bolts and I will have to hole saw the hole for the dead bolt. The door frames are made of wood and not steal as I ordered them.
I ordered a role up door with a chain and sprocket set up to open the door. He bought the cheapest door with a little 1/4" rope knotted in the middle to pull it up and down.
When the material arrived the person who unloaded it was not a qualified fork lift operator. He dropped all of the material off the forks instead of setting down blocks of wood to set the material on top of. He drop the trust from about six foot in the air and broke one of them in half and of course
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
all the rest of them so they were no longer true. He dropped and dragged or pushed all of the material and broke every strap that was holding the wood together. There were several damaged pieces of tin and wood. The new material did not arrive until the crew came back on 7/27/12 and the damage was reported on 7/11/12, the first day the crew arrived. He damaged the role up door crate so bad the crew could not use it to transport the role up door to the back yard. They had to dismantle the crate and carry the door by hand.
Now for the crew. All mexicans that could not speak english except for the foreman. They urinated in the corner of my back yard for four days, which I didn't know was happening at the time. I am still finding trash in my landscaping, the landscaping they didn't trample, cut down, or break off. They broke several pots and landscaping decorations. They were not going to cement the post in the ground. I had to go and buy bags of cement 48 bags. There was a drain I dug up
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to there arrival and showed the foreman. He need to put the first post on the outside of the drain. He
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
out the post incorrectly and was trying to stab the corner post on top of the drain which would have been one and a half feet to shallow the meet the 120 mile an hour rating and once the weight of the building settled the drain would have been broken. I had to make him do it correctly. If I had not been there the building would have been constructed incorrectly. The roof leaked on the first rain and all the screws on the roof had to be tightened. They installed bent tin and some of the tin does not over lap properly. They left over 60 screws on the roof which were rusting on the tin. I brought them a trash can to put trash in and they would not use it, they just keep throwing food containers and other construction trash where ever they were finished with it. They did not over lap the tin where the two over hangs meet the building and covered it up with trim and I had to go and caulk all of the trim to prevent it from leaking inside the building.
Mr.
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was informed about all this as it was happening and he did nothing about it, so I called the owner Mr.
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and he was arrogant and condescending and also did nothing to correct the matter. I spoke to a lawyer friend of mine and he told me it wouldn't be worth the time and frustration to
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
them for the little money I could claim for damages and a poorly constructed building.
So here I am trying to warn other people about
Lafayette Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. They will lie to you and call you a liar when you call them on it!
