they started at the end of March.. tearing everything down was a major task. but, they worked a hard 8 hrs a day and cleaned everything up each night. they kept me informed on the progress constantly. Then came the framing. It is absolutely perfect. Every thing is plum. Then the sheet rock folks came through with another incredibly perfect job. They were very detailed and the finished product shows the workmanship. The painter was/is awesome. I hired him to paint the rest of my house. The electrical and plumbing were done well and efficiently. They were in my house while i was on a trip. They were respectful and honest. They said that it would take a little over 3 months and that is exactly the time frame. They were easy to work with. I had a couple of days that I could not have any workmen around and they were flexible with that. I am so pleased with everything.

Should have known there would be trouble, should have known that the 1 year warranty would be a problem. Looked great until it didn't, which happened quickly. Requests for him to fix things after he received his final payment were ignored until the 1 year was past. Then he could say it wasn't his problem. Apparently ignored requests during remodeling for specific things to be fixed as well. I could go on for pages and pages but the following is a specific example. I requested that extra care in examining the plumbing in the bathtub during the remodel because I thought there was a slow leak and was told of course we'll take care of it. I assumed they did and you remember that old saying about "assume". They didn't, as clearly demonstrated by the fact that I will have to have the kitchen ceiling ripped out (remember it was new, too?) to fix the problem. He acts nice, he pretends he cares until it is done and he is paid and he is outta there. He would say that I'm simply a hysterical female but I think it is his misogyny that made him ignore what I was saying and continue to say. Since I was the family point person on dealing with the remodel, his ignoring my requests and input while pretending he was responding to it is the root of the problems we now face. Of course he'll say that he is married and has two daughters so how could he possibly be a misogynist? My husband simply wants nothing to do with him and his blather and would rather just pay someone else to fix his mistakes. That in itself, says quite a bit. Standard bad contractor story with a twist of sexism, ugh!

I purchased an existing MI Home from the homeowner in Sept 2012. The house was built in Sept 2009. There are two major problems with the house, and I thought they should help with this. This past winter all the windows on the north side of the house had ice on the INSIDE of them. In addition the sliding door had the lock BREAK OFF. The metal must have been defective, because it just snapped in half. I was informed by Mr.
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
that the windows were out of warranty. Who does not warrant there windows for at least 5 years! The house needs all the windows and doors replaced. This is very sad for a 5 year old home. They could not tell me what brand the windows were, but they did tell me where they purchased them.
The other major issue is the cement fiber siding on the house. There was a recall on the siding, but we were never notified. The neighbor told us when they were taking pictures to try to show that there house needed the siding replaced. We filled out and filed all the proper forms. I informed the neighbor on the other side of the issue. Evidently they went and sat in the MI Homes office until they got someone to talk to them. The next week, they had there siding replaced completely on one wall by MI Homes. MI Homes will not discuss the issue. I think this is unfair treatment. If they take care of the situation for one homeowner, why not the house next door.
FYI- Our siding is starting to crumble. When we bought the house, the inspector did not think it was installed properly. The prior home owner gave us a letter from MI Homes stating that the siding was good and was properly installed. It is not totally clear whether they knew about the recall when they wrote the letter. Regardless, they did not tell us about the issue later.
Overall, the house is pretty well built. They definitely cut corners though, especially on the windows.

This two man team was great. They provided quality work, communicated well, were here when they said they'd be. They also were very careful to protect our wood floors, and cleaned up as they went along. They were polite and friendly. The job took longer than estimated, but I guess that's common in this industry. The quality of the workmanship was worth the wait.

Our house was originally constructed in 1864 and presents many unique challenges for service providers. We have used

in the past for smaller projects based on their willingness to take on projects others found problematic. When structural and plumbing issues mounted, along with our desire for updated look,

was the natural choice to handle this significant home investment.
We could not be happier with the finished product and service.

home was completed in december 2013. called customer service at least 6times concerning above issues. never received followup phone calls.customer service claimed that they were backed up. Apparently they are completing their subdivisions first before they complete off site jobs. have until 8/31/2014 to complete work as per contract.once this company has your money work due will be done at the last possible moment. I am very disappointed in the customer service of this company.

Sherdil and his entire team at

and maybe a little lower.

provided me with a detailed work statement, pricing and timing guidelines which were implemented with little variation. In addition, they were professional, clean, hard working, and always prepared to answer my questions and follow up in a timely manner. Several of my neighbors have contacted me wanted to get their contact information as they too were impressed with their work and professionalism. I fully recommend their services and intend to use them again as the need arises.

We had a new home designed and built by
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. Whenever we had a concern or issue, they promptly responded. The product we received for the price is superior! Highly recommend them if you need a new house. Every one was really nice. One of the owner/builders even helped us move from our former house to the new house and let us use his box trailer so we didn't have to rent a trailer.

worked with an engineer to develop a design that would maximize the views of the water, while conforming to the strict codes here on the coast. I would recommend any owner considering a similar job to give him a call.
