always kept us informed regarding the work schedule, advising us the times when certain aspects of the job would take place, etc. Work progress followed his schedule almost to the letter. Very impressive. The only delay we encountered was waiting for inspectors to arrive.

The work was done very quickly and professionally. They were responsive to all my questions and the estimate came in at least $1000 less than the next closest estimate. Unfortunately, they hit rock when installing, which broke their equipment. This

to a delay of a few weeks while the equipment was repaired, but they didn't charge me any additional fees. I had an issue with one of the sprinkler heads leaking and they came out the next day to repair. Very happy overall and would definitely use them again.

This work was performed by the prior owner just before selling the house to us. Upon purchasing and living in the house for a while we discovered the true (lack of) quality in regards to the work performed. The plumbing from the remodeled bathroom leaked under the house, the laminate flooring was buckling throughout the house, and the interior painting was sloppily applied.
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
had provided a one year warranty on their work and we were able to contact them to repair the leaking pipes and buckling flooring. However, the person they sent out barely spoke any English and did a very poor job at fixing the issues. He used finish nails to secure the flooring but left the nail heads exposed to catch on rugs and feet. The plumbing "fix" started leaking again shortly after he left and we ended up calling a real plumber out to finally resolve the issue.
I cannot comment on how the work was actually performed and can only review the results. That being said, I would never recommend
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to anyone wanting quality work done to their house and would advice everyone to steer clear of this outfit.

Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
performed a remodel on our residence at 3511 Meadowridge Lane, Midland, Texas 79707 from February through May of 2008 which was the completion date of the remodel less and except for the damages, defects and substandard construction caused by

Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, Individually and
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
(CV47292 in the 385th Judicial District Court) for DECEPTIVE TRADE PRACTICES, COMMON LAW FRAUD, FRAUD IN A REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION, BREACH OF CONTRACT AND OTHER DAMAGES.

did not obtain the building permit or inspections as required by the Midland Building Codes. After I notified the City of Midland of the problems,
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
obtained a building Permit (#92573) on October 10, 2009. Much of the electrical and plumbing was covered by paneling, cabinets and tile by that time.

did not file with the TRCC as mandated by the State of Texas until after I had contacted the Commission.

did not use a licensed electrician on all of the electrical work performed and as a result, we had numerous electrical problems including an electrical fire at a breaker box. We could also smell natural gas from time to time that could be due to a faulty gas line connection to the installed gas

. His personal residence located at the 5500 Block of Midland Drive burned reportedly due to an electrical cause in a sauna after he had remodeled the home (Midland Reporter-Telegram, August 26, 2008).

We paid $142,371.21 for the remodel. It is documented that his actual work was valued at $70,000.00 if it was done correctly and according to code. We settled in Mediation providing that

purchase the residence for a consideration of $380,000.00 due to the damages, defects and substandard construction by a Special Warranty

dated April 30, 2014.

then put the residence up for sale for a listed price of $475,000.00 and falsifies the Sellers Disclosure.

After our lawsuit was filed,

was sued by at least one other homeowner (
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
County, Texas).
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
built at least two homes that the homeowners had to hire attorneys to pursue resolution.
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
had at least two homeowner complaint filings with the TRCC with two inspections and both were found in favor of the homeowners. We have the TRCC Inspection Report and the City of Midland Inspection Report on the remodel and disclosures will be made to any purchaser of the residence for their protection and safety.

We contracted two other remodels and a home addition prior to this remodel and never had any problems that could not be resolved prior to completion. I am almost 65 years of age and I have lived in Midland most of my life, but decided over a year ago to move my residence away from Midland due to the remodel problems and the fact that Midland has allowed these types of deceptive practices to continue.
All of the above is evidenced by documentation and/or witnesses. The documentation is too voluminous to include in this review.

I contacted
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
about tearing down a garage that had been severely damaged by fallen Tree and rebuild the garage.
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
arrived when he said he would and was prompt on getting me my quotes and answering questions. In the end, after 7 contractors and 5 quotes, it came down to 2 contractors and it was a hard decision to make. Even though I did not choose Baker Construction, I have no hesitation recommending Baker Construction or calling him if I have any other construction needs.
As a side note, it baffles me how hard it was to get written quotes from some of the other contractors. Of the contractors I dealt with, Baker was one of the few that followed up to make sure I got the quote and if I had any questions.

First,
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
are good guys. Overall the job got done and looks really nice. This was a whole house siding job. Their price was decent, certainly not the lowest, but I liked the responsiveness of
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and seemed like a nice guy instead of just hiring a "crew".
What they did good/great:
1. The siding looks awesome. The took their time and it looks good.
2. We were dealing with insurance claims adjuster. Both
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
were awesome in representing me when dealing with insurance. Insurance was asking me to hire someone to carefully take off my aluminum siding and put it back on. Every contractor I talked to said that was stupid and wouldn't do it. Eventually,
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
came over and met with the adjuster to make the case for new siding.
3. I dealt mostly with
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. And because of the circumstances, I had a lot of questions along the way and called him a lot. He answered every time.
4. I did a lot of research on the proper installation of the
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
stuff. It appears they flashed all the seams - which they could have skimped on and most would not have noticed.
What we didn't like:
1. Our biggest complaint is that it took way longer than expected. We were told at one point it would be a 2-3 week project. It ended up taking more than 3 months. Things happened that caused delay - some were my fault, some were theirs and some bad weather. They were clearly bouncing back and forth between jobs. My retired neighbor told me that many times that only 1 guy was here for only 2-3 hours that day. Again, I think the extension of winter into spring got them behind on many jobs this year and they were trying to make everyone happy by at least showing up.
2. We had our roof inspected (for other reasons), and they noticed that there were like 20 holes in our roof in one spot from the scaffolding that they were using. I told this to
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, he saw them too, filled them, and apologized. Not sure who did it?
3. The roof inspectors also notice that the gutter apron wasn't installed in some areas. Again, I told
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and he fixed it - but just don't know why it wasn't done in the first place.
4. There were a couple other small things that may have just been miscommunication... I thought they were installing larger gutters and replacing the fascia. Instead we have standard sized gutters and they painted the existing aluminum fascia. Since the project was taking so long, I was just happy to have it done and wasn't going to complain. Like I said, we were happy with the end result.
I would definitely hire them again, but probably not for a siding job. Given the higher price and time that it took to finish, I would have opted for a crew to come and knock it out in a week or two. For smaller jobs though or if you can get a time commitment, I would hire them again.

We have used this contractor since 1999. Previously he added about 1200 sf new space. Later he remodeled the guest house. At a commercial property he did a large concrete and asphalt job and created pits for machinery installation, etc. We always found him trustworthy. He showed up to the Job site on time everyday. He cleaned up the job site and kept it organized. Never feared that he will run away in the middle of the job. Like any customer, we were picky and pointed things to him. He was reasonable in accommodating us as we were reasonable in realizing if something we wanted was outside the scope or original understanding. Bottom line we deal with him simply because we trust him. He has a professional engineering degree and contractors license. He understands the building code and structural integrity of the building. We live in earthquake area, and need to be assured that the work is done by a professional with structural engineering knowledge and experience no matter how small a job it may be..

We recently completed a room addition and partial remodel, including the construction of a master bathroom and a large deck with
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
. After meeting with several contractors, we decided to hire
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Construction for the job.
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was extremely professional, his quote was very reasonable, and he even helped us find an architect at a great rate to help with zoning, planning and permits.
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew completed each phase of the construction on time and on budget. Unlike many contractors,
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
often works alongside his crew to complete needed work. All of his crew were professional, courteous and did excellent work. The few times that things went wrong (like when one of the tiles in our new shower developed a hairline crack a few days after installation),
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his crew fixed the issues immediately.
Even after the main construction was complete,
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
went above and beyond to make sure everything was completed properly. The doors on one of the new closets, for example, were custom ordered and didn't arrive until months after the main construction was finished. Once the doors arrived, we called
Martinsville Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
, and he came in and installed them himself and even helped patch and paint some drywall in another part of our house (that wasn't related to the original construction), all at no additional charge.

is easy to work with and very accommodating.
He works with you to make the installation go as smoothly as possible.
He always cleans up after himself.
The new kitchen is exactly as we pictured it.
I would highly recommend him for any kitchen remodeling job.
