    Northern Lights Construction
    Had the absolute privilege to work with Northern Light's Construction/Stephen. After getting quotes from several contractors in the Grand Rapids area not only was NLC more cost effective compared to the market but, was promised to be completed before a majority of them. In 3 months NLC did a complete remodel of our home. Stephens professionalism and, attention to details were flawless which resulted in great finished product that we are extremely happy with and, proud to call home. Couldn't recommend a better contractor then Stephen. 10/10, 5+ Stars, A++ Work and, 2 thumbs up!!!

    Chad was awesome to work with. The winter weather held us back a couple of times but that wasn't his fault. His estimate was spot on. He was friendly and helpful with suggestions. We are very happy with the finished product

    Bosworth Builders LLC
    We met with a lot of prospective contractors and builders on this project. The job was to replace an old, rotted cantilevered balcony off the back of our house. We knew exactly what we wanted, provided photographs and were not willing to compromise on design. It had to be a modern, minimalist design, using hardwood and had to have an aluminum and stainless steel cable railing system for great views. There were a few builders who didn't even want to tackle the project, urging us instead to go with a more traditional design and materials. Those designs did not suit our house at all and those contractors were quickly eliminated.

    Ben met with us several times, always on time, to go over the design and details before we made our decision to use Bosworth. The design was approv by an engineer and a permit was pulled. While price was not the lowest, it was fair and he was willing to construct exactly what we wanted, to the tee. Ben's crew, including Travis, Manny, and others were very professional, punctual and did a great job with the cleanup. Even the neighbors commented how professional and courteous they were.

    Ben included me in the decision process from start to finish, and I am very satisfied with the end result. He used high-end materials for a great, finished product. I was also comforted with the warranty that he provided . I will not hesitate to contact Bosworth again in the future when I get ready for the next building project.

    Any homeowner considering Bosworth Builders should have zero hesitation regarding their capabilities and workmanship. Highly recommended.

    When they did the roofing I had water damage from the winter time and it leaked in the kitchen. I didn't get to see what the roof looked like because they put the roofing over it. They roofed over old shingles on bay window but had them come back and take old shingles off and do it right but now they put different color shingles on still not right. They did not pick up nails and I picked up 50-60 nails because they don't have one of those magnet picker uppers. They show up at noon and one time they left at 2:30pm. You never know when they are going to show up. The window guys were pretty good, but the guy that did the bay window I had water damage when he pulled out the old ones. He told me that it was fine. I told him that that can't be true and he beat on it and said that was good enough. The city inspector said I should've called him to have it done right. When he put the bay windows in they were crooked and he told me that's how they were supposed to be. The molding on one side looks nice and the other side is skewed. When they did calving I had termites on the one window and the wood came out. He was actually going to put the calving over the missing wood and I caught him. I complained to the city inspector and he called Able construction so they redid that. When they calked the windows, they just kind of squirted it real fat-like and it looks disgusting. Most professionals smooth it with their fingers. I complained and he came back and told me that that's how it's supposed to be. I'm looking at the calking on the other side of the house and the calving was a quarter of an inch away from the wood on the frame of the house. They just calk it and filled that space with calk. After that dries in a year or two, you know it's going to leak. He came back out and calked it like he doesn't care. The vinyl guys don't know how to pick up nails either. There are a lot of unprofessional people working here. Usually they want to show you the work when the work is done, but these guys just get in their truck and leave. They came out to "fix" some stuff and then took off in their truck. All around a bad and unprofessional company. From the street the house looks good, but there a lot of little things. The city inspector was surprised by a lot of things they did. Now I notice two days ago that they are doing windows next door and I noticed the same guys. Able Constuction in business since 2010, I could have gotten a different construction Co. That had 35 years experience, but the bid was $100.00 to $200.00 higher.

    T Butters Construction Inc
    Tony Butters is a builder. He has done such a good job. Whatever stuff he did is so perfectly done. I still marvel at it. He was that good. I don’t think he advertises because he is always busy. He is phenomenal. When he was done, it was just perfectly done. I had torn out the ceiling in the big room in the basement. I asked them if they could do that and they said yes. Two days later it was done perfectly. He started in the summer and finished up in the fall. It only took him couple of months and we were living in the house at the same time. He coordinated with the plumber and the electrician. He is not a licensed plumber so he brought in people. Everything went like clockwork. No delays and no monkey business. I told him about the cabinets in the basement and I wanted it to be a workbench for me. He said he could do that and so I had a workbench. It was just beautiful. We had a drywall guy come in and the drywall guy did the mudding. Tony would normally be building houses. He is a little bit more expensive than some of the other guys but well worth the additional expense. Everything was just done perfectly. I have never seen such good workmanship. What I got is what I paid for. He is not the cheapest guy. We are going to have him do a bathroom upstairs.

    Soloway and Sons LLC
    I hired a plaster contractor long before I hired Soloway.  He was to completely plaster the house.  The plastering began in the first part of March, 2013.  Soloway broke the thermostat that controlled the heat in the house. The plaster contractor stressed the importance of having the thermostat replaced for proper plaster cure. It took 4 plus months for it to be replaced and was only done so after I demanded it be replaced.
     The plaster contractor told me that the entire plaster job had to be primed before I could paint it.  Specifically, it had to be rolled on not sprayed. Spraying on primer, I was told, would kick up any dust or dirt that could stick to the new plaster, creating bumps on the surface and make it possibly difficult for the paint to adhere.  I passed this information on to the supervisor with specific instructions That he could use the spray painter to paint the ceilings with white primer but that the walls needed primed with a colored primer and it needed to be rolled on. My instructions were completely ignored. Not only were the walls completely sprayed and covered with foreign matter around the floor, the ceilings were primed with green primer as well.  I had to hire a third party to come in and fix the ceiling.  It took her 3 days to do so.  I eventually this person to paint the entire house.  Which is another story.
    The person I hired to paint was a family friend who approached me and asked if she could do the painting of the house for me.  After seeing what a nice job she did on the ceiling, I thought it might be a good idea.  She quoted me $100.00 per day to paint and I hired her.  According to what she told me, The contractor quizzed her about what she was charging me. After she told him, he responded by letting her know that he wouldn't do that job for less than $8,000.00. There by undermining my relationship with her and putting me in a very bad light.
    As far as painting is concerned. Part of my contract with Soloway was to put new windows and and trim in the house.  The windows were over $9,000.00 and the trim was $4,500.00. Judging from the price, I had assumed that was a finished price. It wasn't until after the windows and trim were installed that I discovered from my painter that she was told that filling and painting of trim was not included in the price and that she was to do it. I didn't object and let her paint it and fill. My reasoning was that I liked the quality of her work.
    The windows were another issue.  From the inside of the house they looked fine.  From the outside they looked terrible. The old frames had pieces of the old windows still in it and different color paints from prior years that were revealed during demolition.  I had this fixed by someone else as well.
     There was a large picture window that had been taken out of the front window. It was a large double pane plate glass piece. One of the panes was cracked and ready to break.  It was very dangerous to handle.  I actually helped to remove it from its place.  In my absence the contractor decided to store this by leaning it up against his trailer in my front yard, creating a potential deadly hazard for neighborhood children, or for anyone coming into contact with it. Another person and I moved the glass and slid it face down  underneath the construction trailer where it was less dangerous.
    While under construction, my front yard became a catch all for anything that was removed from the house.  When I became aware that it was an eyesore in the neighborhood I asked the contractor to clean it up and move it out.  I was promised that it would be moved out by friday of that week. On the following Saturday, I came by the house and it was still not removed.  I immediately called the contractor about it and was told that he was fishing and would take care of it later. I don't remember exactly how long it was when the mess was cleaned up, but it was at this point that I realized that i didnt seem important to Soloway that he keep his promises or do what he says he was going to do.  The next couple of months was pretty much the same.

    Infiniti Custom Homes
    They came over to do an estimate. They didn't do any measurements. He said he would do it at later time. I don't feel comfortable with the company between the lady I dealt with on the phone and the man who came to my house.

    Meadow Ridge Builders, LLC
    We have owned three homes in 35 years, so I've had my fair share of dealing with all different kinds of contractors -- carpenters, electricians, plumbers, remodelers, builders, etc. -- and I have my fair share of horror stories. Anyone who has had to deal with contractors knows that it's largely one big headache, and that there are a whole bunch of unscrupulous ones out there. This project was a 4-week, full gut of the bathroom attached to the master bedroom, including structural changes, and I have to say it was the least painful contractor-related experience I've ever had.

    Chad Wildern (President and owner of Meadow Ridge) was a pleasure to work with. He's very accommodating, honest, forthright, punctual, respectful of other's property, and talented in the construction trade. He showed up every morning at the appointed time (usually 8 a.m.), carefully covered the floors and any affected furniture with drop cloths, and did it whether it was he or a subcontractor doing the work that day. Chad was *on the job* every single morning, regardless of who was doing the work that day. He kept a close eye on all of his subs, making sure that their work was performed according to his standards, and that there were no shortcuts being taken. He was extremely attentive to details, often making suggestions to improve the overall outcome of the project, and was careful to discuss each phase of the project with me before it began and while it was in progress. (He even made cost-cutting suggestions!) If he didn't think something was going to work the way I was anticipating, he didn't hesitate to tell me and explain why. He's an excellent communicator. Even though I consider myself to be a "stickler for details" and do not hesitate to voice concerns to make sure everyone's all on the same page, Chad was always 2 or 3 steps ahead of me; he's really a pro. At the end of each day, whether or not he performed work that day or it was a sub working, Chad was there to inspect the progress, collect all of the drop cloths and make sure everything was cleaned up.

    One of the best parts of working with Chad is that I always knew what I was paying for: his contract is very clear, specific, and forthright; you know exactly what you're paying for materials, labor, and his construction management fee. There is no guessing, no feeling of being nickel-and-dimed to death.

    Structural changes included the removal of a ceiling bulkhead that ran above the sink and linen cabinet, as well as above the shower area, electrical changes, and appropriate added insulation. We now have a new vanity, sink, toilet, floor-to-ceiling ceramic tile shower, ceramic tile floor, new light and wall fixtures, and an all-glass Euro shower door/wall. (*Love* it, and no, it doesn't leak!)

    We have gone from an early 1960's blue-everything (sink/ toilet/ shower tiles), dark, icky, scuzzy bathroom to a light, bright, airy, visually-much-larger bathroom that makes me smile whenever I go in there. I absolutely *love* it; it's everything I had imagined and more. As I told my husband, it's actually my favorite room in the house!

    H & H services LLC
    Mr. Harvey was punctual, polite and very knowledgeable.  He had total confidence in explaining what needed to be done and how he was going to go about the repair.  Although we did go with another construction/builder, due to a Board Member of the Condominium Association personally knowing one, I definitely would have hired H & H Service. If we have any other construction repair needs in the future, I would not hesitate to call them!
