Because we choose a lot on a not yet developed street, our dig was delayed until October. October became November which became December which ended up being May 2014! We were strung along month to month told each month that the delay would only be a few weeks longer. We were not informed of the true delay until February 2014 at which time we were pretty much stuck. Unable to look in to other options which would allow us to meet our goal of getting in a new home before our children started school, we proceeded with

. I can also back up each and every statement made here with receipts, emails, texts, pictures, etc. The project started out fine, I was doing a home remodel. We both signed a contract that he wrote up and I modified to include an addendum which answered what specific things he and his company were providing and which things they were not providing. I gave a deposit for the work and the project began. Over the next few months of renovation, things moved slowly but they moved. then i began to

touch with the GC and he wouldnt return my calls. This was surprising because he was, from all my contacts and checking with 20+ people in my town, a stand up guy. He went dark for about 3 weeks when his son (same name) contacted me, stepping in and started to work on the house, claiming his father was "sick". The project began moving again and i provided a second installment. Again more work done, and things seemed normal, during this time, the father started showing up again. Then shortly after I began seeing a slowdown of work, things not being cleaned up, just a general mess. No follow up on work being performed. Again, the GC went dark, no communication. I finally spoke to a few people who knew him and his son and said i need him to call me and finish the work. A few days later I get a text message saying he was in a horrible place financially, and had exhausted every possibility of recovering from his financial mess. He said I was a great guy and didnt deserve what he'd done to me. Evidently, whatever I had given him had only partially gone into my house, and the other monies went elsewhere. As to where, I can only guess. He man'd up and came over to tell me, my wife and best friend what happened and promised to pay me back and complete the job. I was stupid enough to expect him to honor his word and let him come back and do what he could in labor. In the mean time some subcontractors were never paid, or he wrote checks that bounced.

on the house, i paid them and they finished their work. slowly this GC stopped showing up to honor his agreement and finally went totally dark. I have since told him to never come by my property at the advice of my lawyer. My experience with
Northwood Home Builders Provider Name Locked
has been a horror story. He has lied, made excuses and promised everything and never followed through. This is sad since his father who had started the business some 60-70 years ago and practically built half of our town was an outstanding builder and from what I heard a stand up guy. Such a shame to have a great reputation turn into ashes. Lesson learned I guess to watch where each and every penny goes and insure each subcontractor is paid in full prior to giving any subsequent payments. My personal advice to anyone even thinking about using him under any future business name is AVOID HIM AT ALL COSTS.

We had them out once for a quote on some reconstruction of rotted wood on a roof line and to fix a leak. It took numerous phone calls and missed appointments to get them to the house. After they showed up, we could never get them back to do the work.

During the weekend, some high winds damaged the vinyl siding on my detached garage. I sent an email to the company describing the damage on Sunday evening. When I returned from work on Monday afternoon, the damage had been repaired.

has done two repair jobs on our barn in Reelsville, IN. Last year he replaced a crumbled foundation section and rotten wooden wall with a fresh concrete block foundation and steel panel wall. This year he replaced the entire roof of the barn with steel roofing, replaced another rotting wooden wall with steel panels, and replaced a main support beam. His work is of truly excellent quality, is finished on time and exactly on budget. I would highly recommend

Buyers Beware!!!! These so called contractors will take your money and run. They will give you the lowest estimate and then overcharge you in the middle of the job and that's if they'll even finish the job. They will ask you for a deposit on every invoice, because they will break down the work in individual invoices, and then threaten you that they will not complete the job unless you give them more money. I am not even sure that they have a contractor's license. Even the little bit of work they did was of poor quality. So poor, that after they ran away with my money, I had to rehire new people to fix the work they did. They also charged me for higher quality materials and did the old bait and switch with low grade materials. I ended up taking them to court to get my money back. don't let this happen to you....

is a trust-worthy person! He did a wonderful job on my bathrooms!

helped me pick out the items I needed for the remodel. He also suggested some things I didn't think about (like re-routing the duct work so that he could raise the ceiling in the bathroom)! The quality of his work is very high and he can always be reached for a question! I felt completely comfortable with him being in my house while I was at work - which was a concern for me! He has helped me in many different cases and is now going to be doing a new kitchen floor at my house! I called him yesterday and he has already been over to measure! Trust is a big key for me, and you can trust

I called
Northwood Home Builders Provider Name Locked
looking for someone to replace my water main for my house. I had no idea who to call or even what type of business to look for. He totally could have taken advantage of that situation and taken the job, subbed it out, and charged me a 10% fee. Instead, he told gave me his personal short list of trustworthy capable excavating contractors to contact to do the job for me directly. He also gave me some tips on how to do it a little cheaper. He mainly does remodeling jobs so, I will definitely call him for work I need done in the future. Great guy!

The house was fine, but getting the final repairs finished was/is an ongoing nightmare. We requested a screened porch door to be replaced over a month BEFORE closing. We are now 8 months after closing and still waiting on this. The warranty work was fine for the first month, with the exception of the painters, who used the wrong color.

, the foreman we worked with, was the worst employee of any organization we've worked with. He didn't show up for basic things that needed attention, like pouring our concrete pad. I, as the client, arrived at 7 AM to direct workers on how it should be laid out. Doors were put on backwards, island was off-center, etc. Small tweaks that should have been caught by the supervisor of the house-and definitely shouldn't have been something we had to fight to change.
Overall, we love the house, but it was a nightmare getting through everything.
