Contractor received a down payment for work, but did not perform the work.
Contractor provided a bid for the project in October of 2013. He did not perform any work in 2013 and when no work or contact occurred in the spring of 2014, we attempted to contact him. He did not return calls.
In May of 2014, we visited his business (and home). During our visit he promised to complete the work within the next 2 weeks. No work occurred.
Several more attempts were made to contact him without success. In

, he texted us and promised to repay the down payment in August. No repayment occurred.
We are now forced to go to small claims court to get the down payment back.

dropped huge trees on to my own property and trespassed on other surrounding property with downed trees and dirt work.
The

work trucks left oil spills, dirt and rocks up and down the home road that they are required by MSB ordinance to clean up. The

It went well. Water flowed into our bathroom, bedroom and into our downstairs dining room. They reworked the plumbing in the bathroom. Repaired, replaced and repainted the sheetrock in our bedroom and the damaged floor. Repaired, reinsulated and replaced a six by eight section of our downstairs ceiling and replaced the various lights and electrical fixtures. Then resurfaced and repainted and retextured the entire ceiling. Contractor matched paint colors perfectly and took care to protect from dust the areas unaffected. For us it was basically a turn key job and we were most pleased.

We used this vendor (
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
) 5 years ago for a similar project and overall the service was good. For this reason we chose to contact him again.
WHAT A MISTAKE!!!!!!
* Our first clue that we were heading down a bad road was that
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
had changed his company name from "
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
" to Moldings N More. Research tells me that it is common practice for company's who have created a bad reputation for themselves and simply continue to do business under a different company name.
***So BEWARE of MOLDINGS N MORE.....or whatever
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
changes his company name to next week.
* The real problem arose when we pointed out that two pieces (
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
fixes) needed to be corrected. After debating the issue with my wife and myself.....he FINALLY fixed the problem. Apparently, the extra 20 minutes that it took to correct his mistakes were enough to have him walk off the job (leaving unfinished walls marked up). The following day, I called
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to ask when he was coming back to finish the job. His response was "it is too stressful to work for someone who needs to have things done perfectly....so we will not be back." In his opinion, it is too stressful and a waste of time and money to work for someone who is going to complain about a measurement that is off by 1/16 of an inch. In OUR opinion....if something is obviously off-center or crooked to the eye....then it needs to be fixed regardless of how slight he thinks the measurement is off.
***At this point, the conversation was over and he ended the call with language that was uncalled for.
THIS IS A GUY WHO DOES NOT TAKE PRIDE IN HIS WORK AND ABSOLUTELY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY.

I had called Mr.
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to look at a section of my roof that had been leaking. After inspecting it, he informed me that the entire section of roof had been installed incorrectly, and that it needed to be replaced. His estimate was 1500.00.
He performed the service and the roof seemed fine for several months, but only because we did not have any hard rains. Once we did, the roof began to leak, BADLY, in several different places.
have attempted to contact Mr.
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
a dozen times over a period of several weeks, and I cannot get him to return my calls. His voicemail appears to be full.
I am beyond frustrated, as I am not only out the 1500.00, but because of the additional expense of repairing my ceiling when the rain has poured in at times.

There was a lack of attention of details.
The roof job was good.
A strap for a side walled chimney had to be removed to preform the work.
The strap was not reattached when done.
Tarps were put down to catch the debris.
No magnet was used in by the
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's crew during the clean up.
More than a 5
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. bucket of debris including many dozens of nail were left behind.

don't HIRE THESE GUYS
I found out when I tried to get them to fix their massive mistakes that one was an electrician and the other a cabinet maker.
I originally hired them to completely finish my basement that was water damaged from a broken water line. They said they could only work on weekends (no problem for me), they also said the work on million dollar houses.
A few days before they came they called and said they needed a cashiers check because they needed the money immediately (that should have been my first clue) I did not have the money in a local account and told them it would be the next Wednesday before I could get the money into my local account for a cashiers check, I had the money in my regular checking account in another state and could write a personal check to them, but they insisted on a cashiers check so I had to borrow money from my mother to get the check. They also said they needed half the so just divide the quote in half. I told them the quote included the material and I was too provide the material so how much did they allow for material, so that I could subtract material out and he did not know so he just came up with a number out of his head and told me to get the check for $6,843. this was all before they even came to my house. I told them I wanted a contract before they started but when they showed up they left the contract in the car and would get it for me latter (this should have been my second clue). Half way thru the day they brought in the contract the was for $13,000 (less than he told me) and I only needed to pay him $6,500 but the check was already made out for $343 more and in his name and could not be changed (of course he took it and said they would subtract the overage from the remaining balance. He then told me they needed the check before they finished on Saturday not Sunday after they finished the first half. They went out for lunch and tried to cash the check but all the banks were closed so they had to wait till Monday anyway.
They finished the framing on Sunday morning. When I got home from church later that day and went downstairs there was several things wrong. The bedroom doors were the wrong width (trailer size) and no support over the doors. The 2x4's touched the cinder block wall in several places, a big no no. They put the framing around the heat air ducts in as if they were building a tank. The framing around the 2 support post was only attached on top and when I leaned against them they moved (they first wanted to remove the post completely but I informed them they supported the whole upstairs) They did not put support for the upper kitchen cabinets. They framed over a window as if I was not going to use the window (in a basement with limited outside light). They did not support over the doors for the closets which I told them I was going to use hanging fan fold doors on which weigh is quite a bit more than normal closet doors. They didn't even frame out one of the closets. I told them to just normal frame under my stairs for drywall, and the cabinet maker took several hours making it ready for the shelves and drawers I told them I was going to do myself latter, when I'm ready to do my work I'll have to rip his all out. We had to redo the doors and the duct work framing, redo the window and upper kitchen cabinet braces. redo the water pipe box, redo the post covers.
Wow so much more they did wrong. It would take a book to tell you everything. AGAIN don't HIRE THESE GUYS.

and his expert crew handled all phases of construction except electrical, gutters, and the removal of a tree.
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
prepped the site (removed the stump, bought in fill dirt, built the slab form), constructed the garage, painted it to match the house, and configured the driveway. The quality and speed of the work was top notch in every respect.
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
worked closely with us on the design and was able to make adjustments along the way. His bid was among the lowest we received.
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is straightforward and honest and a pleasure to work with. The result is beautiful and has earned the admiration of many folks in the neighborhood.
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and the crew at 4J Builders get my very highest recommendation, I'm never calling anyone else.

is all business, and a great person to work with. He showed up right on time, and listened to everything I needed to have done. At that point he gave additional recommendations as to how things would best be accomplished. He provided me with a quote within 24 hours, which was 6 days faster than the other 2 companies I had called. In the end, we decided to use another company based on a lower price and immediate start date, this was in no way a reflection of LG Home Improvements. I have saved

's phone number and plan on calling him again once we buy a new home. Thanks

This contractor did an excellent job. The price was reasonable and they were very prompt. They came when they said. The whole job took 4 1/2 days. I was especially impressed with the sub-contractor, Sommercraft construction. His employees were very professional and polite. They were also very tidy. They cleaned up the property every day even though the job was not finished. The house looks beautiful.
