"I had an in ground pool that had not been used for many years. Contacted
about the demo project. We made an appointment to show him the" pool. He showed up on TIME! Was able to provide a quote in a timely manner,
responded to every phone call promptly, answered any and all questions. We scheduled the project. He and his team showed up again on TIME. They all worked extremely hard. All were courteous and polite. Job was completed on TIME!
made this job seem easy. They also, left the yard and surrounding areas looking better (cleaner) then when they started. I have no complaints and would use this contractor should the need arise. ~Thank you,

-Terri F.

"Every project went well. They are very knowledgeable and responsive to our needs. Our projects were not large, but they were done to very lhigh standards. We" have seen examples of their more extensive work on other peoples homes and based on that I highly recommend using them for both large and small projects.

Angie's Answers

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.

Horrific experience, the wrong materials were used, the work was not done well and they didn't even tile in the corner of the rooms but then reattached the baseboards! We had to have everything ripped up and redone by another company. They always had an excuse why it wasn't their fault or couldn't be done properly.
- Elena A.

Beware--when we wrote a check to this guy, we would often not see him again for weeks or months. After giving him our initial deposit, no work was done on the property for close to 2 months. Despite the contract price, he held us up for additional money. First it was for an engineering report and some extra materials he claimed were required by the building inspector. When we called the inspector in January because we were going to have to hire someone else to complete the project, we found out that the inspector had NOT required these additional expenses. We paid him the final installment on the contract October 25, 2014, and then we did not see him again until the 18th of December. When he and his worker did show up, he started his day late, left for a very long lunch, and usually left early in the afternoon. He had a host of excuses--from the prior job being extended to health problems to family problems to worker problems. Worst of all, on December 22, 2014, just before Christmas he DEMANDED an additional $3500 and ASSURED us he would return on the 29th of December, 2014 AND the job would be finished in 1 week. We wrote him a check for an additional $2500 because he was in our house, wouldn't leave and we felt coerced. He did not show up again. Despite our repeated contacts and his promises to show up, he did not. The condition of the exterior of our property? Two only partially built car ports, which are not level, and not useable because the proper grading and retaining walls have also not been built. We have since learned that this is not an isolated experience. Perhaps if we had joined Angie's List before we contracted we would not be out over $20,000 and in

Overall, a fairly decent job. Loved the price for a labor only contract; I provided all materials for the work. Contracted for 56 hours of work; they gave me only 52 hours and wouldn't refund any, even though the workers did not complete all the work to meet the project task list I had given them. They had to time to do, but kept leaving early (around 3:30 instead of 5 pm). Lunch times were extended to 1.5 hours instead of an hour on a couple of days. Biggest problem was the lack of attention to detail. I feel that was due in part to an inexperienced sheetrocker and a crew of young guys . The project lead,
Fort Gibson Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, was very good and had to go back and correct errors made by
Fort Gibson Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. I even stopped
Fort Gibson Home Builders Provider Name Locked
a couple of times to correct the work he was doing-he actually ignored the alarm box unit that plugs into the outlet and the electric outlet and sheetrocked the wall without cutting out the outlet box hole or pulling the alarm power box out. He cut 80% of the outlets/cable/phone
Fort Gibson Home Builders Provider Name Locked
openings too large, and broke the edges off installing the rock on wall. I had to buy all new covers in a larger size and will still have to repair 6 of them around the boxes due to the broken/rough edges. He didn't ensure the rock lined up at seams so there are waves. The guys didn't ensure all brads were tapped down on the molding (used an air gun with 2" or 3" brads. They used caulk to fill joints on the moldings instead of wood putty. They didn't clean the previous caulking left on wall from removal of damaged moldings around all the doors or fix the sheetrock damaged from that removal when they reinstalled the new moldings. They rehung a door and didn't set the hinges back into the correct spot, so door springs out instead of closing properly. They didn't even clean up overspray from wall texture; it was every where! So now, before I could even paint, I have been and still am correcting all these little issues in order to restore everything to the way it should be. Plus the extra costs of having to buy additional supplies, new outlet covers, and hours and hours of labor on my part. The company would not make good on anything. Their project manager, who came to the site twice, was rude and condescending to me; treated me like a dumb broad who didn't know anything. What he didn't know was that I was the one personally remodeled the entire house, by myself, over the course of several years. But overall, you get what you pay for. I would probably use them again if/when we flood again but only to do the heavy labor of basic sheetrocking/mudding, rehang doors, install cabinets and nothing else. All finish work I'll do myself next time so I will know it is correctly done.
- Holly S.

The job started strong and the paint job done immediately. Afterwords, I voiced my concerns and was told that these items would be fixed during the walk through. When I pointed them out during the walk though I didn't feel like I received a strong response, more of, well that's the way the wood is.

From the beginning,

was always punctual and professional They kept us informed of the progress from start to finish.
The workers kept work areas clean and the project was completed within our specified time frame and the cost ended up a little cheaper than first quoted.

I was really impressed that they called me back this morning to follow up. Even though I had already found another company to do the work,

called to see if I still needed their service and to make sure I was taken care of. They were professionl and courteous.
- Danita K F.

We contacted 2 contractors who indicated interest, made appointments and never showed up, another contractor who made a site visit, took a copy of our architect's plans and never returned them or provided an estimate for the work and a fourth contractor who was highly recommended and provided an estimate before obtaining an estimate from
Fort Gibson Home Builders Provider Name Locked
who was also recommended. Although the other contractor who provided an estimate was better known, my husband decided to use
Fort Gibson Home Builders Provider Name Locked
because he felt confident in his knowledge and ability. He also liked that he provided suggestions that were not in the architect's plans.
Fort Gibson Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was very professional. He explained that he began construction specializing in framing and working for many well known contractors before obtaining his General Contractor's License.
Fort Gibson Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was always prompt for appointments prior to beginning the work. He prepared a contract which detailed the work, materials and responsibilities for both him and us which included time frames for completion of the various stages of the work.
Fort Gibson Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was on the job almost every day regularly overseeing his employees and sub contractors and also personally assisting with various projects. He updated us regularly regarding work, coordinated the work of subcontractors, always personally introducing us prior to their work beginning. He was very knowledgeable of the Homeowners Association's rules and restrictions and assured that he and the subcontractors abided by them. He has a meticulous personality and this showed in his work. He provided suggestions to us on issues that he had experience with which helped us greatly with the process due to our inexperience and assured that we had everything we needed in the end. I greatly appreciated that although the addition was attached at the roof, the game room was separated by a covered patio and he took great pains to ensure that doors, moulding, trim and such matched the interior of my existing home. He suggested an upgrade to the framing and I had at least two persons indicate that it was impeccable. My husband has since stated that if we ever have a storm, he will feel more protected in the addition than the house as it is so sturdily built. In the end, I could not say ONE bad thing about the experience or the outcome.
Fort Gibson Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was very helpful, was there every step of the way, used experienced craftsmen and tradesmen, responded to any question or concern through the entire process and underbid the better known contractor by a small amount. The job took a little longer than initially indicated however it was in part due to inclimate weather and in part due to an issue out of his control regarding a servitude. This delay did not concern us as his obsessive attention to quality and perfection outweighed that minor issue.
- Dotty A.

The contractor told us the garage would take 4 - 6 weeks to complete when he bid on the job. He started the beginning of
Fort Gibson Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and the job was not completed until the end of November (almost 5 months). In addition, he added multiple charges to the final bill and would not provide requested documentation for an explanation of these charges. We were supposed to receive a credit on a portion of electrical work because we relocated the garage from the original location to move it 80 feet closer to the house. He claimed there were extra expenses above and beyond the credit so he added an additional charge for what was left after the credit was "absorbed". No where in the final bill is any mention of a credit or what these extra charges were that ate up the credit. In addition, he bid on jobs after bidding and accepting ours and started the work on those jobs ahead of ours. He wasn't able to fully complete our job (apply second coat of sealer on the driveway) because it got too late in the year and the temperature has to be above 50 degrees. His billing is not itemized and is very vague (ex. electrical work - $7500). When we inquired about one of his extra charges on his final bill he stated if we weren't going to pay it he would add a completely different charge (inflation charge) for us to pay instead. We would not recommend his services.
