"The job took 4 months as opposed to the 3 - 4 weeks we were told. The first day of the job, the helper busted a water line and flooded our living room floor, so" they paid to replace our wood floors without hesitation. They were pleasant to do business with, though I feel his charges are on the high side. Trustworthy and capable.

"I recently relocated from down-state to
and wanted a contractor to remodel my kitchen. Although I was aware there was a large company which" does kitchen remodels, I was told they were expensive (I did not get an estimate). I was referred by a couple people to an independent contractor. I met with him and agreed upon a contract. However, a couple weeks later he told me that he took a new job and would be relocating down-state. He referred me to
for the remodel.
met with me; understood my remodel requirements and was willing to take the job.
's proposal was close to that of the previous scheduled contractor so I agreed to enter into a contract with him. The time-frame for the job, after the cabinets were ordered and arrived, would be about 10 days. I ordered new appliances and they were ready for delivery anytime they were needed. I met with
at 41 Lumber who was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in choosing my cabinetry. I also did the leg work to find the flooring and countertop. Afterward,
ordered the cabinets and dealt with the flooring and countertop contractors. Cabinets were ordered and arrived and demolition began the first week of Nov. 2014. Carpenter arrived on schedule to start the demolition. He prepared the area with plastic runners and hung plastic at doorways, etc to help contain dust, etc. I arranged to be down-state for 10 days so the contractor would have free access to the house . I expected to return in 10 days to a completed kitchen. Wrong. The demolition was done, the gas and water line had been installed and the flooring was laid and cabinets were in place. No, countertops, plumbing, electrical, or installation of appliances. It would take 2 more months to complete the project. I have no problem with the quality of work. But waiting 3 months for the job to be completed was very frustrating. I believe the problem is that other than the carpenter, Northland does not have its own laborers. I never saw
in my home doing any of the work. I believe he is just the orchestrator. The electrician, plumber, flooring installer and countertop installer were all independent contractors and my job timeframe was scheduled around the other contractors' schedules. The electrician could only do so much until the plumber came in (on his schedule) and then the electrician would have to return (on their schedule) to complete their work; the plumber could do only so much and then he had to wait on the countertop installer (on his schedule) before the plumbing could be finished and then the countertop installer had to return to caulk ........you get the picture?
was cooperative, responsive and willing to please and the quality of work was what I expected. The problem with my remodel was a time issue.
uses reputable contractors who do good work and, accordingly, you wait your turn for their services. In hindsight, maybe securing a large remodel company who has electricians, plumbers, etc who work solely for the company would have been the way to go to get the job done in a timely manner.

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.

In order to get to the site our backyard gate had to be removed. As luck would have it our air condition units were to close to the fence to move materials and equipment safely.

. He answered all my questions and took time to explain everything in detail.
My wife and kids left to see family the day the job was being completed. Before my wife left she gave me specific instructions to keep the new turf and sod watered and alive. I told her not to worry I had everything under control. Ten minutes after she leaves I am called back to work and need to be in Alabama by morning. I made arrangements with the neighbors to water the yard and they were kind enough to water in the evenings. New turf needs water twice a day for the first week.

They made an appointment with me and on the morning of the appointment, 2 and a half hours before the scheduled appointment time, they called to cancel, saing they had booked 2 big jobs in the last two weeks and wouldnt have the time to look at mine. I had taken time off of work to be home on that day. If they had booked within the 2 weeks i waited for my appointment why was i not contacted sooner and told they wouldnt be available? Not very professional. I wont call them again.

Mount Hood Parkdale Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was very easy to communicate with. He offered ideas for saving us a substantial amount on the project, and was persistent with engineer and architect in making necessary changes to plans. The work was completed in a professional and timely manner. We are a business, so he and his subs had to work around our open hours, which they willingly did! Everyone was respectful and pleasant to have in our building. We are planning to hire his company to do more of our project, including a new porch, ramp, roof and more!

Did excellent job - Explained reason for each additional service that was done not in original call to fix problem.

We called
Mount Hood Parkdale Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to our farmhouse turned hunting camp on a Sunday morning last spring (May 2014) when we noticed water damage due to a leaking roof. Knowing we were just there for the weekend,
Mount Hood Parkdale Home Builders Provider Name Locked
came right by and asked detailed questions about what we were looking to have done. Later that week, after pricing materials, they provided us with a quote over the phone. Being a camp without a single owner, it took us some time to talk to everyone about getting the roof done. It was not until the beginning of hunting season and our discovery of even more leaks that we decided we needed to put the roof on ASAP. Again,
Mount Hood Parkdale Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was able to help us out by honoring their now almost six month old quote and were able to get the roof on within two weeks of us making the decision to proceed.
The roof itself looks great, the quality of the workmanship was top notch and we would highly recommend them to anyone else in the area looking for general construction and roofing needs. From the very beginning, based upon the quality of questions they had about our expectations and quick professional responses we felt secure that the project would go well and it did.

I called
Mount Hood Parkdale Home Builders Provider Name Locked
at the beginning on November to get an estimate. I thought that someone would come out in a week or so but someone came out that same day to give me an estimate! I had gotten a few different estimates and
Mount Hood Parkdale Home Builders Provider Name Locked
had the best price by far. The reason why I went with
Mount Hood Parkdale Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is because they are a family owned company and the same crew of men have worked together for over 15 years and they specialize in drainage (which our driveway had a huge problem with) and the owner
Mount Hood Parkdale Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was really picky about his work (from watching him I would have to say he is definitely a perfectionist). I thought this would be a couple day project but they were in and out out on the same day. Another thing that i really appreciated that other companies did not do was every other company asked for a half down deposit before the job and when I offered to write a check before the job the owner
Mount Hood Parkdale Home Builders Provider Name Locked
said that it was not necessary....he said that after they are done installing the driveway and I am happy with the look of it then I can write him a check! That right there made me feel way more comfortable with the whole process. When the driveway was installed, the owner
Mount Hood Parkdale Home Builders Provider Name Locked
grabbed our water hose and hosed down the driveway just to show me that the huge water problem we had was gone. I normally don't write reviews but I really thought they deserved it and If anyone else was looking for a new driveway with great workmanship I would recommend to call
