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
To our surprise, a subcontractor turned up do the concrete. Not only was this inconsistent with what we had been
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
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 doors were not a quick install because the house is old and nothing is straight. But not a word of complaint from
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
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.
