"Background Mr.
was contracted in December 2014 to slurry a concrete countertop to fix bug holes and pinholes that surfaced in the product" that Mr.
originally manufactured and installed in August 2011 as part of a kitchen improvement project. Filling the holes is especially important in the initial concrete countertop construction process to prevent dirt, grime, and the growth and harboring of bacteria in these concrete voids. These countertops are now riddled with holes that are not repairable due to processes that were used during the initial fabrication process; the problems have only been exacerbated by the subsequent use of sealers at later dates. The countertops in their current condition pose safety, and hygienic and health hazards. Slurry of Concrete Countertops Mr.
commenced hand-filling the concrete countertop holes by applying a mixture of cement, water, and color pigment for a period of six hours spanning two days. During his efforts, he was asked: ? Why he wasn’t doing a full slurry coat of all areas. He replied that he couldn’t get the mixture into the holes other than by using his hand on each individual hole. ? Why he was not sanding down or removing the existing sealer from the surface in preparation for the slurry; his reply was that was only done in refinishing concrete. He also conveyed that he would be filling the smaller pinholes with wax (not a standard practice). On the third day, a coat of sealant was applied and the countertops were subsequently waxed. Over the ensuing weekend, it was determined that: ? The cement patches had shrunk substantially, were coarse in appearance, and had not hardened (cement consistency was chalk-like). ? New holes had surfaced (assumably due to the pressure exerted by the buffer given the inherent, yet newly discovered, condition of the countertop). ? The color of the cement used on the second day differed greatly (red vs. dark brown) than that used on the first day (which was the closer match). ? The color of the concrete patches rubbed off just by touching. Mr.
was contacted first thing on Monday, and all of these issues concerning his efforts were brought to his attention. He subsequently inspected the countertops. The following questions were posed to him: ? Why was the cement not hardening and did he have any recommendations to solve the problems? He only replied “I
’t understand.” (This was also the comment he made when he first started this recent project in discussion of the incredible amount of voids and pinholes in the countertops to begin with.) ? Should sand or admixtures be used, like recommended acrylic modifiers and/or plasticizer/water reducers to increase cement workability and strength? He had only used a mixture of Portland cement, water, and color pigment. He had never heard of acrylic polymers and the information article explaining its usage as a binding agent was subsequently emailed to him. ? What type of sealant did he use when he originally fabricated the countertops. He stated it was a penetrating sealer. If this is the case, its ability to absorb a new sealer or bond with a new sealer is a concern. The sealer type must be known in order to determine whether the sealer needs to be removed by chemical or mechanical means, if even possible. ? What color mix did he use this time? He said he used brown with a touch of black the first day. He said he altered the color the second day, using red and black and that at some point he had run out of the brown. The only way to begin to address the issue was to remove the unhardened cement from hundreds and hundreds of holes. Mr.
concurred. This effort took us approximately 40 hours (we did this to save incurring additional time and material contract charges). After completing approximately two square feet of the countertop, Mr.
was shown what would become an accurate representation of the final results. Our findings were: ? In literally a thousand (maybe two) or more places the countertop’s thin, brittle crust crunched or caved in at the touch of a bamboo skewer (light pressure was applied to differentiate which holes were "soft" (with recently applied cement patches) and which were "hard" (slurried at time of manufacture)). This exposed air pockets and new pinholes; several of the newly exposed voids are as large as 3/4-inch in diameter and 1/2-inch or more deep. ? Holes slurried at a previous date (post-manufacture, but within the first 6 months of installation) also contained the same chalk-like cement, but were undetectable because of subsequent wax coatings. Mr.
also saw and inspected the countertops after this work was completed, at the time he presented his bill for the slurry (yes, he charges us each time to fix these defects). He agreed at that time that the voids or holes needed to be exposed to the maximum extent possible. During the course of the effort and in the three to four weeks that followed, Mr.
never proferred a solution to address the issue with his cement slurry process nor did he make any attempt to mitigate what appears to be a defect in design, workmanship, and/or materials which occurred at the time of fabrication. That defect has resulted in an inordinate number of holes indicative of air pockets caused by not properly vibrating or consolidating the concrete. “The most serious defects resulting from undervibration are … excessive entrapped air voids (bugholes) (p. 19) … A mass of freshly placed concrete is usually honeycombed with entrapped air. If allowed to
in this condition, the concrete will be nonuniform, weak, porous, and poorly bonded to the reinforcement. It will also have a poor appearance (p. 2)” (American Concrete Institute, Guide for Consolidation of Concrete (ACI 309R-96)). Also, we subsequently tried to communicate with him via certified letter about remedying the problems and received no response. After extensive research and communications with construction and countertop tradesmen, we discovered: ? That it is probable that the sealer and/or sealers used by Mr.
on three different occasions and which he subsequently claimed he cannot remember which ones he used – originally, again within the first year of installation, and during this project – have penetrated the pores in the concrete, permanently changing the concrete, and therefore cannot be removed. Note: Mr.
conveyed at the time of construction that three to four months after fabrication, the countertops would require a subsequent slurry, sealing, and wax effort to fill holes caused by rising air bubbles in the concrete curing process. We were made to believe that this is a naturally occurring event and not to be construed as a defect of his workmanship. ? Consequently, a cement slurry procedure or refinishing of the countertops will not be successful even if performed in accordance with standard commercial practices which include (1) removing the wax and all penetrating and topical sealers, (2) grinding down the countertops to achieve a clean, solid substrate, (3) using sand and cement bonding agents in the slurry mix process, and (4) subsequently, reapplying sealers that are able to adhere to the existing and new concrete surfaces. ? There may be an insufficient surface material
above the aggregate (as typically this should be only about 1/16”) to undertake the necessary grinding (up to 1") to adequately remove the sealer without damaging the concrete substrate, at worst; or, in a best case situation, exposing the aggregate which changes the product’s original form. We have essentially been left high and dry concerning repair or replacement of our kitchen countertops. No other contractors specializing in concrete countertops offer these services in our county. The closest company we could contact for a quote – located over 300 miles away – gave us an estimate of $8300 based on a provided sketch containing existing dimensions ($6300 for the product and $2000 for a template, travel, and installation), not including replacement of the coordinating backsplash. As of this date, we are in process of getting an estimate for the expense necessary to remove and dispose of the existing countertops and, as necessary, the slate backsplash Mr.
originally was contracted to provide and install. Conclusion We would not recommend Mr.
for any building service based on our experience. He fails to stand behind his product, charges for short-term “fixes,” and neither (1) suggests and/or executes an adequate and acceptable solution to remedy any issues caused by his practices or processes nor (2) offers partial or full compensation for damage or defects directly resulting from his fabrication or service.

"
was referred to us by a friend for a total home renovation project. Unfortunately, we didn’t research him" because of the referral, but we have since found several online complaints (AZROC, Rippoff Report, and Better Business Bureau) in AZ and OH that are similar to our own. We signed a contract on 10/18/2014 and in the beginning everything was going smoothly and we were happy with the progress for about 2-3 weeks. Then he started asking for more and more money up front "to keep the project moving" and by the time we became concerned with the lack of progress and quality of work, we were already ahead on payments. He had 80% of the money and had only completed about 50% of the work. The construction was scheduled to be finished by 12/07/2014, but the cabinet order was not expected to be delivered until 12/29. As the General Contractor,
was not concerned about workmanship. When we expressed concern about the quality of some of the work, he denied there was a problem and assured us it would look fine when it was all done. He does some work himself instead of hiring professional subcontractors. He did not communicate well with his subcontractors and the schedule of work was illogical and
to rework and delays. Poor Quality Work: - Built a pony wall that visibly leans to one side - Other walls have cracked seams, uneven texture, uneven paint coverage - Overspray (paint and texture) from poor masking on walls, trim, floors, inside light kits, and on electrical outlets and switches - Ignored paint color/finish choices we provided and had to repaint some areas, ran out of paint, and never finished painting - Installed a section of new hardwood flooring with misaligned boards and no moisture
under the wood - Installed tile flooring that is not level, tiles are chipped,
pieces are missing (filled-in with thinset instead of tile), grout is a different color than requested, and grout lines are not straight - Polished concrete shower surrounds - walls are not straight, 1st coat of concrete is heavily cracked - Did not protect new bathtub - it was chipped and scratched after install - Did not sufficiently cover existing wood flooring (left exposed for most of the project to be damaged by workers’ boots and covered with paint, mud, texture) - Removed and damaged ceiling fans/lights in almost every room without direction to do so - they will all need to be replaced now - General property damage and disregard: concrete spilled and cured on driveway/grass/gravel, missing large wall mirror, missing homeowner tools
continued to string us along, assuring us that things would be fixed and completed, but work stopped. He stopped coming to the job site, was slow to respond to emails and texts, and he pushed out the cabinet delivery date twice. He continued to give us excuses (his son was sick multiple times, his truck broke down, etc.). He didn't provide a schedule or status update after many requests. We also began to suspect that he didn't use our cabinet deposit to order the cabinets because of the delays, and he wouldn't send us proof of the cabinet order when we requested it. We finally gave him a deadline (1/20/2015) to complete the work or provide us with a refund for incomplete work that we paid for. For weeks he continued to say that he would come over to the house in the next few days, or that he'd call, but he hasn’t returned to the job site and when we hear from him he puts us off another day or more. He sent his oldest son and a friend over to pick up two saws that they left behind. Subcontractors have come to our house looking for him because he has not paid them and doesn’t respond to messages. He left a large dumpster full of demo materials (from other project sites as well as ours) in our driveway and when we called the disposal company 1/21/2015 the owner said that
’s credit card was declined and refused to pick up the dumpster unless we paid the bill. We are posting this review to help others avoid experiencing the same disappointment and grief. We’ve also filed a formal complaint with AZROC due to the amount of money involved. Good luck and use licensed contractors who care about their reputations!

Yes, but you won't like what will probably happen (this is a worst case scenario, hopefully you will avoid most):

The purpose for a building permit is to ensure meeting the minimum standards for construction practices and minimum safety standards.  A contractor who works without a permit, does so because they know they are not in compliance (and to save money at your expense).  They knew they should have had inspections and permits for their work.  Who ever built the addition should be reported to both the building official as well as the Better Business Bureau.  It is ultimately the homeowner who is responsible for ensuring the proper permits have been applied for, though.

So when you apply for your permit, you will be pretending as if the work is not completed (you do not hide this fact, you just have to follow the correct process as if it hadn't been built).  Your first stop will be with zoning; can you even add an addition, do you have the proper clearances from the side, front and rear property lines.  If it is a bedroom, does the septic system (perk test) support an additional bedroom.  If your building already meets or exceeds the amount of building allowed on the site or if you do not have the clearances required from the property line, your addition may be required to be removed.  There are appeal processes and variance requests you can try before tearing down the addition (Get an architect).

If your zoning review is fine, next you go to permitting.  Here you will submit plans (drawings) of what was built.  If you do not have these plans, consider hiring an Architect to generate As-Built drawings for this use.  Hopefully the plan review comes back with no changes, or you will alread know your addition is not in compliance and may face rebuilding.  Depending on the type of construction, your zoning and your local building requirements, you will be required to have inspections of your foundation / footings, the framing, the electrical, mechancial and HVAC systems, etc. affected by the work. 

This may require digging the ground back up so the inspector can confirm foundation depth, size and draingage requirements.  The interior wall finishes (gypsum board, panelling, etc) may have to be removed in some or all areas so the framing and electrical can be inspected (If one area fails, be prepared to pull all areas down).  At each inspection, if the work is found to be lacking, then you will have to correct the work before getting permission to use the room.  If there is an electrical or safety violation found, it is possible the Building Official could declare the entire property inhabitable until the offenses are corrected (IE you are homeless until it is fixed).

As you can see, you have to hope beyond belief that the builder constructed everything correctly and that the building officials will work with you to minimize the amount of deconstruction necessary to inspect the work.

Also, you will be charged all the fees associated with plan review and permitting, and you will be charged for each inspection visit (as your builder would have been charged initially had they followed the law).

As for value, here is the real concern:  If your home burns down or faces some similar disaster, your home owners insurance will balk at paying; they will blame the illegal construction as the cause.  As for the value of your building, not having a permit will make any buyer have a difficult time getting their own insurance, thus harder to sell.  The room itself will add value to your property, if it isn't a hazard (IE permitted). 

Also, taxes are based upon assessments, which use the land records.  Building without a permit, can be seen by local officials as an attempt to avoid paying property taxes, since the land records do not show the addition.  Until the official tax records reflect an accurate statement of your building, you may face fines, tax fees and other costs associated with the improvement depending upon how long it has been there unreported.

You may wish to contact a local, licensed Architect who works with the local building department.  They will know the personel, know which forms you need to fill out first and how to protect you from an overzealous Building Official (there are exceptions and options within the Code that the Building Official may forget or ignore that an Architect can request be used to prevent tear down or damage).  Next time you go to build get the Architect first to protect yourself from what this construction firm did to you.

Good luck!

Unfortunately this is not something you will easily resolve; and even if you were to win, the amount of time and funds spent will probably exceed the cost of the actual repair.

Each state has different rules on what "as-is" means, but almost all use the term when it comes to realestate sales.  At two years, you are facing a hurdle that any issue could be the result of new conditions, acceptable wear / settlement, etc.  Has there been any changes in the area? (New house built next door, new addition, earthquake, flooding, etc?)

While you may have been given a home warranty with the purchase (do check your sales paperwork to see if there is any warranty and what it covers for how long) the house is sold to you as-is; it is your responsibility to raise concerns prior to taking over the house, so going back two years later is a huge up hill batle.

The home inspector is also going to be found faultless, as their reports almost always have words like "consult with an expert. . ." after each report section and they have disclaimers for missed items, etc. I got certified as a home inspector and was surprised at just how little they actually require you to know to become an inspector. They are really just an extra pair of eyes to help inexpereinced home owners look where most people don't look or go.  You even mention that the repair work was well masked, so you didn't notice it until you began looking for it.  A good inspector might have caught it, but you won't win any court cases proving yours wasn't good enough.

The Seller will claim that any foundation issues were fixed and resolved, which is why they marked "No" on the foundation issue section.  They fixed it; so it was no longer an issue.  If it came back, that is a new issue.  You and I know this is bogus, but to win in court you have to prove intent; and the builder can easily show they thought it was fixed.  Or, they might even be able to claim they were unaware - the repairs were from the previous owner, and were hidden so well HE and YOU didn't notice them.

So the next step is to meet with your home insurance agent.  As I mentioned above, if there have been any enviromental changes (a new house next door could have changed the underground water table flow or pressures, for example) you may be covered.  Even if there are no issues, you still may have a policy that allows for major repairs to be covered after a certian cost threshold, etc.  You'd be surprised at what your home owners insurance covers - find out first; they might have in house or low cost engineers who will do the initial inspection, etc.  They also will provide advice on your home sale; if they think you have a case against the Seller.

Best of luck on this issue.  Make sure any solution you pay for solves the cause (Stress on the wall), and doesn't just fix the results (cracks).




?
"Like a sunroom" indicating the addition has yet to be built?  If it's just a remodel there are several remodeling contractors to choose from.  If you also need the addition built pick a general contractor with experience building new construction as well as additions.  If s/he provides a price before the plans and specifications are on paper drop them like a hot potato.  They don't know what they're doing.  Whether they have the ability to provide the plans and specifications first or they refer you to an architect you must have plans to properly bid a major remodel or addition.  It is also good practice anyway just to make sure both parties are on the same page and understand exactly what will be done.

Just a note about the "type" of contractors described in another answer.  The one's who do most or all of the work themselves are not very profitable without doing something illegal or cutting corners somewhere, if they finish the job.  The time a contractor spends on a job takes away from the office time needed to run a proper business and chase new leads to keep working after your job is finished.  There are honest people out there who do everything themselves and don't need to make much money in a year but they are few and far between, typically retired and so the work as a means to keep active and make a little side money.  Others try to do a couple of jobs at once and rob from the funds of one to help pay for the other.  They just aren't experienced enough and were probably sub-contractors who suddenly thought they could run the show.  I've seen it repeatedly.  They hit up the customer for more money due to their own budget planning or abandon the job because they aren't making any more money.  be leary of a contractor who does not either use an employed or sub-contracted crew, meaning they manage the project's quality, time, and money distribution.

FYI: CPVC and PEX are two different materials and installed differently.  PEX is not intended to be glued but instead has special crimp fittings.  PEX is a brand name of one product that is manufactured slightly differently by others as well so it is important that the same brand fittings are used to match the pipe material.

Mobile homes used CPVC for years and some still do.  It works fine but is not as strong as a properly soldered copper pipe system.  Is the contractor installing this new plumbing a licensed plumber?  I'd be surprised if he is since he's using CPVC and not PEX (or similar) or copper.  PEX pipe is even cheaper than CPVC when run by a knowledgable plumber.  It doesn't require nearly as many joints since it comes in rolls and can flex through spaces easily.

There are some groups raising a fuss about BPA and other chemicals found in plastics that don't like the use of CPVC, PVC, or PEX pipe.  I haven't seen the results of any lab tests to confirm or dispute their concerns.  As far as durability goes it's fairly safe as long as it's properly installed and secured.  It is not as susceptible to hard water damage as copper.  It absolutely must be insulated along it's entire length to protect it from contact to other materials as well as freezing.  Also, the fixtures in the house need to be grounded electrically since the pipe itself provides no electrical protection against accidental shock or electrocution.  In a copper plumbed house the system is grounded so static electricity, a short in a wire near a water line, or lightning strike will carry the current out through the pipe instead of through the water to you, ideally.

If it's installed correctly you should be fine but make sure the contractor knows what he is doing and follows the proper procedures to use CPVC pipe.

when the tree fell. He assured me that they could get to the work in about a week and have it done in 4-6 weeks. That was acceptable. Three months later I'm still trying to get things finalized so we could move.

All the work that is done by this construction company is sub contracted. When the work passed the 2 month
Cottleville Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, I had to get the yard finalized to be ready for the sale. I asked the project manager to ensure to use the driveway and not put anything on the sod. The roofers just threw the shingles and roof debris all over the yard. The painters were incompetent. They did not do any prep work on external doors and the paint was popping off the next day. They took 5 weeks to take down wallpaper. Then the prep was not done properly one the walls and Window sills. I finally had to ask that they be removed from the job.

The final straw was when I went to settle with them before closing on the sell of the house. They told me I owed them more money but didn't have an itemized bill. I showed them numerous items that they were billing me for that they did not do. I asked for an itemized bill. Two weeks later at the closing table, I still didn't have the itemized bills. Builders services said I owed $2600, so that much was held as escrow. It took several weeks to have a new office manager go through the bill to finally tell me I only owed $388. I was so glad to be done with this company. The people were all nice, except for
