The provider did absolutely nothing. I contacted them on 08/14/14 asking for a quote to do a job in my home. The same day I received a response requesting contact info to set up an appointment to come out and give me a quote. On 08/15/14, I supplied my contact information. On 08/16/14, I tried contacting them again to see if they planned on coming out to look at the job and give a quote. I have not heard from them since.

We selected
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
over their bigger competitor (
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
) because of the positive reviews in Angie's List and the lack of BBB complaints, but in particular because Rich told us that they were experts in pouring concrete and would pour the garage foundation themselves.
The stages involved in getting a replacement garage are (a) permit from city (b) demolition (c) concrete (d) garage construction (e) electrical work (f) city inspection. Normally (b)-(e) are done in stages by different subcontractors, with the garage company's only job being to schedule and pay these subcontractors. A company that does one of these steps itself sounded good to us, and we agreed to pay a slightly higher price than
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
had quoted.
To our surprise, a subcontractor turned up do the concrete. Not only was this inconsistent with what we had been
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
to believe (admittedly it hadn’t been written into the contract), but the measuring and framing crew was almost comically incompetent. They got the garage location wrong and chopped off large parts of our bushes before we arrived and stopped them. They then assembled the frame irregularly (one side of the
rectangle was 6.5" shorter than the opposite side!). This problem was discovered by the garage construction crew when they arrived to do the job two weeks later---they had to pack up and leave.
Rich then had the concrete completely dug up and repoured---there was no practical alternative. This time the job actually was done by Rich and his crew, and it was done OK. We are also happy with the construction of the garage itself (built with 16" studs rather than 24").
Even apart from the problem with the concrete, we were not crazy about how the whole job was organized. The use of subcontractors is normal for any kind of construction, but usually someone provides overall supervision. Here it felt as if no one was checking whether the work was being done properly, except for us.
Issues were not addressed until we called them. There were long waits between the stages...of course the concrete needs time to
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
, but the other waits could have been shorter than they were. The city cannot be blamed for any of the delay; they issued the permit expeditiously and also did the final inspection quickly. [To be fair, summer 2014 was quite rainy, which likely caused some of the delays.]
It should also be noted that the people who came out to do the work, as well as the office staff, were always pleasant and helpful. There was never any attempt to charge extra for anything. At the end of the process, we do have what appears to be a solid concrete pad and a nice garage. We signed the contract in April; the job was not finished until August.
Do we recommend Regency? Well, yes in spite of everything, because the alternatives are likely to be worse (check BBB). But get all commitments in writing. Suggestion: instead of the contractor-grade door opener, get an upgraded model: the price difference is very small (~$50 for a Liftmaster 8360). Also we are very happy with our decision to pay for a 18' door rather than the standard 16' for a two-car garage, which we had in our old garage and found to be a bit tight.

The end result of our upstairs project is gorgeous! We love the beautiful subway tile shower and the cabinets that surround it, the tile floor is gorgeous (and I can't wait to use the in floor heat) and all the non-bathroom projects were finished beautifully as well (a couple built in shelving units, painting, trim, etc). The project took longer than expected but that was due to a backorder on the floor tile and a few additional projects added in.
While
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
did most of the work (at least 95%), the project was quoted by someone else and that is why I put N/A for the price rating.

Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
is a personable guy and very punctual. He just keeps things rolling right along. I had a short time frame for him to work in and even though I added the door replacements and
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
to the original work order, he kept the deadline schedule. All of this completed in 3 days. The job he did was great. No complaints at all. Everyone who has seen the work he did at my house has commented how nice it looks. It not only looks good but it is sturdy as a rock and exactly what I wanted.
The doors were not a quick install because the house is old and nothing is straight. But not a word of complaint from
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
. Bottom line; he is a professional. I am considering building a garage and I would not hesitate to call
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
if I do. My experience has been a positive one.

This is the second year that I have used
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
. I have them every two weeks for mowing and weedeating. I have a large yard, lots of rocks, TONS of weedeating. Takes me about 5 or 6 hours to get it done. They are in and out in the blink of an eye and the work is always perfect ! I have also used them in the past for removing some small trees from the property. They show up when they say they will. Always punctual. They gave me a free estimate last year when they started for me and I actually got another estimate this year. My price went down $5 per week. I was absolutely sure that it was going to be up ! I hope to be able to use them when the season is over to remove some shrubbery.

did such a wonderful job, I decided to write a review. It is so hard to find a good, professioanl contractor these days, and it was so nice to not have to deal with a big company that subs out work.
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
has a great attention to detail, and is a trustworthy guy. I would definitely refer him to someone, and plan to use him again in the futute.



Thanks!

I searched for a shed for a month or so, went to several places in the area and called several and obtained catalogs not in the local area. I finally went to
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
and found that pricewise, they were pretty close to the others. The quality was as good and options were the same. The people in the office were very nice and helpful and everything went smooth. They said would take about 6 weeks for shed to be built. It onyl took about 4 weeks but I was able to delay delivery for about a month. Delivery was great. Overall very good experience and shed is NICE

came out very promptly to provide a design and estimate. Once we finalized the design and price they scheduled us in very quickly. Within a very short time, our unique storage shed was put up. The craftsmanship is excellent and after they started they promptly finished the entire job in 1-1/2 days. All of the staff were very professional, polite and grateful for the work. The group look very organized and it was clear they knew what they were doing. They finished, cleaned up the entire area and thanked me for the opportunity. Their great quality and solid service made me feel great about my purchase.

I decided to go with
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
and
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
because he assured me that my concerns about having the driveway completed and matching would not be an issue. By matching I am not referring to the color but more the design of the other side of the existing driveway.
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
outsourced to another concrete guy because he doesn't actually do concrete. Didn't know that until after the work started.
There was a slight delay to getting the work started because of weather. However, once they started I had two guys that basically hung out at my house on and off for about a week. They were there to do the framing. I could have framed the whole project in an afternoon, it took them a week. They would do 5 minutes of work and go the store for drinks and come back, then repeat.
They had to cut the old concrete to add the extension. The line that was cut was all jagged and not straight at all. As the project continued I asked the supervisor that was there about things I didn't like and he said that they would be taken care of. They were not and now I have cut
Ludington Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
and expansion joints that look like a 5 year old did it.
When they were clearing the ground to frame the concrete they chipped the current driveway. I insisted they come back and fix these areas. Well, they put these terrible patches on that have already broken off.
The bottom line to this job is that I could have googled how to pour concrete, invited a few friend over, rented the equipment needed and had a much better job done. The crew that was here had "0" attention to detail and were just there for a paycheck.
There is already cracking in the concrete, I don't expect it to last.
Do your research and avoid this guy...
