Wayne Home Building Articles
in job so it was done on a time available basis. They called the night before and showed up when they said they would. They were professional and thorough.
It was a small job but I can not imagine how they could have done anything better.
Quality of work:
and his team worked with meticulous care and attention. They kept the space organized and clean throughout the entire job. They also respected the common spaces in the building, taking care to protect surfaces when moving things up and down the stairs. The carpentry work was excellent, and I am extremely happy with the two custom closets that were built. The kitchen cabinets, counter, and fixtures as well as the bathroom fixtures were installed with precision and matched exactly the design plans. Frankly, I couldn't be happier with the result.
The job was finished on time and everything proceeded very smoothly.
All in all working with
brought to the attention of supervisors including the owner. Numerous employees are not properly certified. Countless roof leaks that i have personally seen myself caused by the employees careless mistakes. I had numerous items stolen from me by employees that were under the influence of illegal drugs... Im posting this to warn homeowners or customers that may be interested in this business.
-Our beautiful concrete floors were not covered with paper or cardboard the entire time during construction. Since this is what we would be seeing every day and would be our finished product it was dissappointing that there were many deep long scratches all over our living room, dining room, and kitchen from nails dropped and stepped on, subs dragging equipment through the house, subs dropping things on the floor etc. Once completed even after buffing and waxing many of these horrible scratches never came out and I ended up having to buy two large area rugs to cover them and make it an acceptable living space.
-Electrical - Our kitchen pendant lights started smoking and the wire cords turned black from the lights being on. I called the electricians and they told me they would be out immediatley to shut off power to that area, that it was a fire hazard. After they came out they told me that the pendant lights were not UL certified. DB would not replace these becasue he
-Sheetrock/Framing - We paid extra, a lot extra for sound proof sheetrock in our home. On one of our visits during construction I noticed the sheetrockers were not using acoustical glue which is needed for sound proof sheetrock. I asked the crew if DB had been there that day or if he didnt tell them they needed this special glue. THey said they hadnt talked to him in a couple of days. I asked if the sheet rock was the "sound sheet rock" and they said no. I contacted
-Appliances/Finish work - We had picked out all of our plumbing fixtures in advance & they were included in our contract price. When it was time to order our master bath tub that was $2000
*Safety-A 20 lb wood panel fell off dishwasher on my 1 yr old son the first week
By this time I am not a happy buyer & tension was high! We did not trust DB or anything he said or did and it was the worst feeling I've even experienced especially since we were going to live in this home. In total we paid in excess of 55K out of pocket above and beyond the contract for mistakes or adding in the items that were "suppose to be" included.
Total time to build ended up at10 mos and 2 wks & 7K in extra loan fees .
To end the experience at month 11 I had a list of things needing to be repaired per the contract. DB said that I owed $3800 and that if I paid they would have the items fixed. I asked for information/details of this $ I owed & recieved nothing! The list of things to fix included: plumbing in the one of the bathroom tubs was broken, I contacted the plumber & he told me
we've since had everything fixed & items repalced so we could still call this our dream home and we now enjoy it very much. I wished I would have done my research and contacted previous buyers and got an attorney to review the contract. We know of 6 other families that had horrible experiences with DB and similar occurrences. My advice would be to buy a spec house if you love his design, then you know what you are going to get, hopefully! He makes $$ by cutting corners on custom homes.
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
