Had all new work to match existing style of my home. (Window Grips, Shutters, and Window Cornice's). Also, all of the Colors matched the rest of my house as well. This was all done perfect.

We called
to give us an estimate on cutting and installing some custom
-cross beams for our kitchen ceiling. He came right out and took all the needed measurements. Within two days he was on-site with all the materials and completed the installation that day. It looks great! He is a fantastic master carpenter/builder and has three associate degrees in Applied Science (Carpentry, Cabinetry and Building construction technology). As a U.S. Navy veteran, he always provides discounts for veterans.

Would not give me a detailed cost for the repair prior to the work. Just told me the approximate cost.
Workers arrived on time at house. Stood outside and talked. Worked slowly.
Everytime anything was discussed that needed done, even when the item was listed before work was done, they added expenses but did not give me a quote for the additional expense prior to the work.
.
Took much too long to complete, complaining that the room was so small that it took longer to get the work done than they thought it should. Took almost a month.
They did not want me to buy the fixtures, they wanted to get them and then upcharge me about twice the cost. If I questioned why I couldn't purchase the supplies, they just didn't want me to.
Shower leaked through the floor, damaging my hutch that sat below it on the first floor. No compensation was allowed for the damage.
No detailed invoice was given to me at completion.
Even though the finished job looks very nice; I will never recommend them to anyone ever.

Great. On time, had the proper materials, skill and tools to remove and replace very large screens in less than 30 minutes. The lanai they built 3.5 years ago is continuously enjoyed. It was built promptly and as designed. This small licensed contractor has the skill to complete small jobs and large jobs.

is a nice guy and has been lucky for me.
Everytime he comes out and gives quotes, they are as expensive as getting the work done through Home Depot and Lowes.
However as soon as he leaves, the next contractor who comes in with quotes turns out to be the best.
His pricing leaves a lot to be desired for the kind of work i was looking to get done and that too without proper references to back up his work quality. I engaged Angie's list Star Rated contractors for less than half of what he charges for excellent work.
I cannot recommend his services to anyone.

Summary:
After excessive delays and persistently poor communication, we elected to choose another contractor to actually build the unit. The plans he did complete (late) gave us multiple problems with the city, delaying our project even more. We are just now breaking ground mid-
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. I wish I had never engaged
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, as it cost us months of delays.
Exact timeline:
Nov/
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
2013 - Started talking with
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
back in Nov/
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
of 2013 about helping us build an
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
. This is, apparently, the only work he does - i.e.
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's. It was always front/center that we wanted to break ground by May 2014.
Feb 9, 2014 - I send him all our initial drawings, and ask for the design contract.
Feb 17 - He finally sends design contract to us, and we execute it with down payment.
March 11 -
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
send us preliminary drawings. We offer minor changes (just moving some windows).
April 1 - still no word from
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
on when he will complete the plans to then submit to the city.
April 6 - We finally meet and he now informs me that he's booked up and cannot start in May,
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is his earliest time for breaking ground. He says that he has now booked someone else in the May/June slot. I express concern that he knew when we wanted to start then - why didn't he talk to us about this? And can we hold his
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
slot - sort of a "first right of refusal" - so that this doesn't get pushed back any longer? He assures us that the
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
spot is ours - direct quote from his email:
"You're still near the top of my list as far as priority. I think I can work around my other projects and schedule in time to make yours work, and on time."
April 21- he completes the final drawings, and says he's going to the city the next day and will submit our drawings.
April 30 - he informs me that he didn't submit the plans, and now says he needs to get engineering involved. He now also informs me that he can't break ground in
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, probably won't have time until Oct! Says someone else paid a deposit and he put them in that slot. I ask - what about "first right of refusal" - and he says he doesn't like first right of refusal. And I ask him why he didn't just come to me and say, someone wants your spot - do you still want
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, and if you do, you have to put down some money. He said he felt like it was my responsibility to pursue him. At this point, I tell him that I'm going to use another contractor to build the place - and to please just complete the drawings.
May 6 - we discuss by email. Still hasn't submitted the plans to his engineer.
May 28 - finally turns over completed work to my new contractor.
Bottom line - I think
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was stringing us along, wanting to try and keep his schedule as full as possible. I get the desire to always have work. He probably gets lots of inquiries that never
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
out. But, in this situation, we made our goals very clear (breaking ground by May) and we engaged him in a design contract with plenty of lead time to meet this goal. His miscommunication, and ultimately going back on his word left us high and dry - without a contractor in May, hoping to break ground in
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
...........a short time frame in the busiest months of the year, to find someone to take on a major construction project. Fortunately, I was able to scramble and find someone else who is doing a fantastic job.
I was almost not going to post this overwhelmingly negative review.............except that the design/plans that he completed have given us a h*** of a time with the city. They were incomplete, missing information, designed in ways that weren't to code. And all this from someone who focuses exclusively on
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
's? This is a complete mystery to me. I would NOT recommend engaging
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
for your
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
project.

Remodeling took more than 9 months instead of 2 that contractor told. Job was never finished to our satisfaction, and was way over budget. Very little attention to detail, and much delayed payment to subs. Contractor took no responsibility for any mistakes.

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 "
Eltham Home Builders Provider Name Locked
" 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.
