The initial estimate and schedule for work to be done went very well. We were advised that a permit was going to be required due to the structural nature of the repair. Since this job was to take place near Thanksgiving we expected a bit of delay in the permitting process. After calls to
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and being repeatedly told that the permit was applied for and it just hadn't been reviewed yet I requested the permit or application number yet. After being put off for weeks, I called the permit office to determine the status of the permit. The permit office spokesperson searched applications by my address, by contractor - any way she could think of to find the status. She couldn't find evidence that a permit was ever applied for. She suggested I wait another week and call back to check in case he hadn't gotten around to it yet. I called
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to further question the status of the permit - and was told once again that it was not reviewed yet. I asked again for an application number permit number. Once again
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
indicated he didn't have one and none would be available until the review was completed. I called the permit office in a week - still no evidence of a submittal for a permit for my job. After a final phone call - no answer - to
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
we called another company for the job.

The design plan was excellent. So far the work is going very well. The men clean up daily. All trash is removed daily. The work crew is very knowledgable about what they are doing. The project is on budget and on time for completion. I'm pleased with the way everything is going.

We signed a contract in March 2013. When the house wasn't under construction by the beginning of 2014, e signed a contract addendum in Feb saying that the house had to be completed by August 31,2014. It is now Sept 2014 and our house is no where near completion. We have been patient and cooperative, and we have given the builder every opportunity to build the house. But we are out of patience, and we have resorted to legal action. In short, this has been the worst home-building experience we've ever had, and it has taken the joy out of the entire experience. Such a shame for everyone.

When I decided to remodel my home, I thought it would take too long, cost more than I expected and it would be very stressful. But I can truthfully say, that was not my experience with
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
.
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
were very generous and patient in giving me a quote on my project. The price was reasonable and the work was very professional. They kept all of their promises to me and were very responsive when I had a question or a concern. My project was completed on schedule. The process was easy and it was stress-free. Everyone at
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was professional and courteous. My thanks go to
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked

, owner of
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
talks a good talk but don't believe one word. We were promised that his company does the job right, doesn't take shortcuts and will do anything to make it right for the customer.
Not one word of that is true. We are so disappointed that someone who charged us 15,000.00 would not stand up and rectify the poor work done. We ended up with refurbished windows with no warranty from the Alpen company and
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
just wants to get rid of us and not make it right. His carpenters tried to sneak installation of the new slider door onto rotted wood frame. Luckily I was there at the right time and had to insist that they replace the bad boards with new boards. We have had to use several (30) tubes of calk and foam to be able to install finish trim. yea, real quality work they did :(
Our next step is to hire a lawyer and
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
for the entire 15.000.00 plus a settlement.
All we wanted was new quality windows and doors.
What we ended up with?
A wasted summer trying to get
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
to rectify the situation which still hasn't happened, and we ended up with refurbished windows and doors while paying full price for new.
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is not a good person. Thank the heavens above for
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and Attorneys.
I have been holding off on hitting the submit button on this review, I don't like to speak badly of anyone but just now, the handle to the new sliding door just fell off and I wouldn't wish our experience on anyone!

Had contacted him for a bath remodel. Stated he was busy on another job and couldn't not begin for at least 4 weeks, which would have been fine, but was told he did not want to complete an estimate unless he KNEW he was getting the job. How can I decide whether to hire you for a job unless I know how much the job will be.

did not meet the start by date. In fact he started three weeks later than contacted. Room was gutted and then left for nearly two more weeks. Constant phone calls resulted in
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
showing up with the plumber for a look at he job.
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
came back looking for more money to pay the plumber because additional work was necessary. plumber was responsive and roughed in the job. Two more weeks went by and no sheet rocking until multiple calls were made. Sheet rock finally put up and another two weeks to be taped and finished. Now three weeks past contracted finish date and still not completed. Gave
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
a dead line for completion of one additional week. The plumber came by indicating he had not received payment for his work.
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
installed the tile and some trim work was completed during that final week. Still waiting for sink and counter at end of final dead line week. On the last day of drop dead line
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
indicated he had not ordered and could not purchase the counter and sink (which was supposed to be ordered four weeks earlier) because his credit card didn't work. FIRED

WILSLOW!!! (four weeks after the contracted completion date)Completed the tile work and caulking my self. ordered counter and counter top with sink. and installed. Paid plumber to come and finish the job.
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
Wilsolow is a completed dead beat!! I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. He will not complete the job. After further investigation I learned he owed a number of other contractors money and had other jobs he had not completed. DO NOT HIRE this individual. if you want the work completed.

I gave the foreman $2400 for supplies to get the job started.... unfortunately after more than double digits of phone calls and his excuses he never came through with ANY of the items. He said he was making them at his shop in
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
, KY and then would bring them down to Smyrna, TN. I have yet to hear back from him, see my money, or see anything built. I mean ANYTHING. I called the owner who has also not called me back after initial contact.

Finding O'
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
and
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
was one of the luckier days of my life as a landlord. He and his long-established crew are amazing and I cannot recommend
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
highly enough. After a frustrating
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
for a contractor, I finally found him through a recommendation from
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
at Kitchen Concepts, and the whole process worked beautifully throughout. O'
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
had previously done the work on
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
School and other
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
locations, and he knows his business and how to schedule and deal with customers. His guys were always on time, always cleaned and tidied up, worked tirelessly, knew their business, and were easy to have around. O'
De Forest Home Builders Provider Name Locked
is a problem-solver, which is perfect for an old house (1925) and he figured out how to squeeze in a full bath upstairs and get it approved by the city. His price was not quite but almost the lowest bid; two other bids were absurdly high. Any extra costs came from the unexpected bad plumbing and some changes I made. All in all, a terrific experience.
