The insurance company found
& IQB easy to work with for adjustment of damages claims, all paperwork was accurate, properly justified and delivered in a timely fashion. The entire project remained for the most part on schedule, with only a few days delay over the course of a month or so because of weather which is understandable given it was the middle of the winter. The IQB crew was very professional and thorough in their work including some finish details which were outstanding and really made a final difference. Also the crews were responsible in cleaning up after each day since we were also living near/around the construction area. There were one or two items which needed the final work done in the sprint when the weather warmed up, these were also done on time and with good attention to detail. Overall the IQB guys did an excellent job that we have received numerous compliments on and have referred them to other friends. I received almost daily phone calls with the updates as the project was moving forward and appreciated the future planning advice given during various phases of the work. I don't believe that IQB will be the lowest priced of your alternatives, but I would not expect them to be given the quality of the work and transparency in the pricing proposals. They were excellent to work with and will use them again on other projects in the home.

Overall, our experience was horrendous. The owner of the company,
(
)
, was a pathological liar, unprofessional in his dealings with us and underhanded. He applied for a building permit with our town in an amount less than half the cost of the project contract price (to save himself money), opened up our roof to build the second story addition and didn't seal the structure for nearly two months (resulting in major water damage to our existing home) and refused to rectify said damage. Furthermore, over the course of the project, two of his employees brought to our attention several structural deficiencies in the project (one example: he purposely neglected to place a cement footing under a load-bearing wall, even though he had included such a footing in the plans he submitted to the town building inspector's office). His employees also told us that he didn't provide them with enough materials to work at even a slow to reasonable pace and that
(the owner of
) was purposely ignoring our phone calls because we were 'getting on his nerves.' Apparently trying to discuss the lack of progress on our home and the puddles all over our first floor equated to 'getting on his nerves.' After eight months and his inability to pass the town's structural inspection we terminated our relationship with him, only to have a mechanics
slapped on our home (which he did under false pretense). Following his termination he created and back-dated invoices that we never saw nor agreed upon and trumped up bills for items which we never received. We had paid him without question for months, only to stop payment during the last month of the contract because we realized that we were never going to have a house to live in under his stewardship. We were forced to hire a structural engineer and new contractors to fix all of his blunders. In addition to the nearly $80,000 we paid
, we had to pay an add'l $45,000 to fix his mistakes before we could begin to finish our project for an additional $160,000. Finally, it was revealed in the aftermath of firing him that several of his employees were smoking marijuana at the project site and one individual stole items from a storage shed on our property. To quote one employee, "The only thing that was happening at your house on consistent basis was pot smoking and playing football." All in all, it was a nightmare of an experience.

Overall, we were very happy with the work and the results and would recommend them.



They responded quickly to our call and discussed the various options. They were very knowledgeable and made a

number of good recommendations, and the pricing was reasonable, so we decided to hire them.



Once engaged, they built the entire pool house and shed from scratch. All of the people that worked on the project were very professional, friendly, and good to deal with.



One of the things we were impressed by was their flexibility. As the pool house and shed were being built there were things in our design that we realized we wanted to change and they were able to make changes to accommodate us. For example, we were originally going to use off the shelf doors for the shed, but for a number of reasons we later realized they wouldn’t work well, so they ended up building the doors themselves. Similarly, we were originally going to use store-bought columns for the front of the pool house, but later decided they wouldn’t really work, so they built columns from scratch.



They checked with us a number of times during the building process to make sure we were happy with the way things were turning out.



The project was more than 90% completed in the Fall, but once the bad weather came we mutually agreed that it made sense to wait until the spring to finish it off. They returned in late April and finished off the project. This actually gave us a

to see how everything held up over the winter (no problems).



We are very pleased with the final results. The construction was done very well and both the pool house and shed look great. They were very focused on ensuring we were happy with the end result. Also, there were no

costs. We would recommend them.
