The entire service took 2 days to complete and the technician that performed the work was very good about the complete removal of both the existing doors and stairs. Repaired several "
" issues and provided a step by step update on the progress of the service. Did a complete clean up of the area and followed up with a return call several days later to ensure that the job met our expectations.

They completed the job in a timely manner, they returned when they said they would return. Within a month there was a problem with the door because it gets constant use. I phoned them and they came out right away. They have returned twice WITHOUT BEING CALLED to complete repair on the door.

Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
assured us that he would be the GC on site to take care of the building of our new home. He also assured us that he would keep us informed as to what we needed to take care of, what decisions needed to be made and when in order to keep the building process moving along. Our house was slated to be completed in 5-6 months time.

Crane was the handler of the bills and was to keep the budget in line. He we over one line item by nearly 25%, and by the time we found out, it was too late and we had to pay the bills.
It took 8 months because of unnecessary delays and the lack of
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
being on site when needed. He did not show up to see if those he had scheduled were at our house. He did not let us know what was going on, and we would have weeks of no work being completed because of his lack of ability to keep things scheduled and moving. We ended up having to ask all the questions in order to keep up with what we needed to do, and my husband had to be on site every day so that he would know what was going on. He was also the one catching mistakes and asking that they be fixed, not
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, who was supposed to the GC.
As time went on, it became more of an issue because
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
decided to begin a new "spec" house of their own.
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
simply stopped showing up all together, and did not answer our questions. He then had to hire out the jobs that he himself had been taking care of at our house, and those contractors didn't as good of a job. He didn't even bother to come out and inspect the work.

Crane was making so many mistakes with the bills that I was having to look everything over before approving it with the bank. I would have ended up paying him thousands of dollars over what the bills were if I had let his draws go through. It was careless and not done in a way that showed any concern over my money.
At the end of the process,
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was upset at us because we called him on the carpet for not being present and doing his job as we had been promised. We felt that we did not owe him the full amount due to his lack of performance. However, the contract we signed was vague, and that was a mistake on our part for signing it as first time home builders.

Crane and
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
both demanded the full pay, and
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
would not even show up at the last meeting to discuss our concerns. We gave them the money, even though they did not earn it.
I urge you to not use Mr.
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
as a builder. He does not follow through with what he tells you in the beginning, and in the end you will regret being taken in by his easy going manner.
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Crane will not care about your money, how it is spent or if it goes over your budget. My husband and I are not demanding people, and it was very upsetting to us to be treated this way by someone we felt comfortable with and trusted in the beginning. I do not like having to say things like this about someone, but I feel that it is important to let others know so that they do not have to go through what we did.

We hired
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
based on reviews he had on Angie's List and we were not disappointed! We're blown away at how great he is. He and the sub-contractors he used were all very professional, respectful of our home and property, timely and just a great group of tradesman. We now have people we can count on for any of our future needs. The designer he sent us to was just what we needed, and extremely patient with us thru all the decision making. What was done? We blew out a wall between the kitchen/dining room and our living area, moved and replaced both a sliding glass door and window (the window was replaced with a larger window) which necessitated the removal of the vinyl siding and sheathing, tore out all the cabinets, fixed a bad section of subfloor, then rebuilt everything putting in even more cabinets, an island, lots of lighting (including ribbon under cabinet
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
lights - simply great!) Through it all
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
kept us informed about what was going on, what was coming next and did a great job of tracking and resolving any issues that came up. He did the new cabinet install himself and did meticulous work getting the cabinets to align properly to give a seamless appearance. When all was done, the price we paid was what he proposed in the beginning - no surprises.

Would we hire
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
again in the future - in a heartbeat!!! If I can figure where and how to upload a picture of the final product, I'll do that.

Eastside Homes is run by an arrogant
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
in a golf shirt who will
lie to you as if he selling a used car. What you think,want,need,feel is
irrelevant to the sale. You will be promised things you will not get.
Unfortunately, I bought the lemon. This Skyline Home was put together by
2 yr olds with drills. So many gouges, blemishes, bumps.
The screws are poking through all around both bathroom mirrors.
don't walk barefoot, it is all lumps.
Rain came in under doors, light came in all around.
Lock on sliding doors didn't latch, doorknob came off bedroom door.
Security lights don't work;other lights dim constantly so I will probably die in a fire.
They put my siding on in the rain.
After transport, they do not set up chandeliers or turn on water to
dishwasher or ice maker or anything else helpful to single, old lady.
The "garden tub" is a crinkly piece of cheap plastic.
Blinds didn't match, and there is missing trim.
Had repairman out only to find they didn't put icemaker in right.
Windows have cheap plastic latches.
They had air conditioner draining into center of yard to create a swamp.

in a golf shirt sent out workman to build wrong size deck.
They
do not care and will not respond, not even to Better Business Bureau
complaints. I have the name of a consumer protection lawyer which is
next step. I am resigned to live in a house I hate so I have a new
commercial slogan for Skyline:
" Buy Skyline; you were never meant to be happy anyway!"

Our renovation project with
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
went very well. We felt comfortable working with
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
right off the bat. Throughout the few months that we worked together (which included planning, and then renovating),
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was always available to answer questions, give recommendations and provide assurance that everything was on track. Although I know that he had multiple projects going on at the same time, he always made us feel like a priority (as I am sure he did with the others).
For us, not having to
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
out who to use for all of the different aspects of the project took a huge
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
off our shoulders. Also he took care of negotiating fair prices for each of the specialties. With him leading the project, I never felt "taken" by any of the subcontractors like I have in previous situations.
He told us what to expect right from the beginning, as far as costs and schedules, and he made sure all the pieces fell into place within the allotted time frame.
We were very pleased with the work and have recommended

to several friends and coworkers in the past year.

They took our money and never showed up to do the work. We contacted Aspen to raise the height of our existing block walls which Aspen originally installed through our builder. Although it took several follow ups on our part, they did eventually come out to do an estimate and give us a bid. We accepted the bid and about 2 weeks later (yes, two weeks) they contacted us to schedule. We had to pay 50% down, which seemed reasonable until the day they were scheduled to do the work. Despite a call from Aspen the night before, and the fact that they already cashed our check - here we sit, no show, no call. And no response to our calls to them. maybe we will hear from them someday - We hope so since we paid in advance!!!

It went very well. I had the master bath remodeled a few years ago, so it's interesting to compare the two contractors.
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
did a great job of planning and understanding that finishing the job is important. Without that skill, a project can
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
much longer that it needs to be - and believe me, when you don't have a kitchen, time is of the essence. If you decide to use
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
I have a little advice: 1.
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was the guy on site and he was awesome! He was very good at making sure the project moved forward and stayed on time, and pulled us in on decisions with enough lead time. 2. Use their vendors for granite and tile - they were great and surprisingly affordable! I regret not doing the same thing for the cabinets. 3. Listen to them. They have good advice that is worth considering.




I think I have the best kitchen and porch ever. Thanks

Over the past 3 years, we have had Herb
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
of
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
perform numerous repairs and remodeling jobs on two different houses. As listed above, he has done everything from completely finishing our basement, remodeling our master bathroom, painting the interior and exterior of our home, etc. We have used him for numerous jobs because of his quality of work, integrity, and genuine affability. While he is not the cheapest, we know that he stands behind his work and has high standards for his employees. For example, after finishing our basement, we had a leak in the ceiling and he promptly came over and repaired it without question or extra charge. Another time, when our master bathroom was being remodeled we noticed that $600 dollars in
Novelty Home Builders Provider Name Locked
cash went missing from my wife's drawer. Herb was incredibly apologetic and embarrassed and fired the questionable worker that had been at our house that day (the only possible culprit unfortunately) and subtracted the cost from the job (without ever questioning that we were telling the truth).
Honestly, there were times we wished he was a little faster with completing jobs (the basement took several months due to permits, etc), but we keep hiring him because we trust his work and never fear that we're being taken advantage of. Despite doing so much work on our 2 houses, he has been upfront and honest about what truly needs to be fixed now and what can easily be monitored and repaired when needed.
