Our initial impression of Mark Bierwagen, President, Stone Creek Building and Development, Kalin Beirwagen, Vice President, and Sean Leanders, Construction Supervisor, was some what favorable. They are all seemed nice, affable people. However, that is the extent of our positive experience with the Stone Creek Building and Development business. My husband, Fred, is a retired, licensed and bonded general contractor, ( C.C.B. # 8095) with over 40 years experience in residential construction. We hired Stone Creek to build our final home because of age and health issues that discouraged us from doing the work ourselves. The project did not go well because our concerns about their building practices seemed to go unheeded. We were assured our requests for corrections were addressed but later we learned they may not have tried to fix things at all. Fred has spent weeks and hundreds of dollars repairing framing and underlayment, straightening walls and floors himself (back trouble and all !). In his opinion, in all his years of building homes he had not seen such poor construction. We believe Stone Creek Building and Dev. uses inferior subcontractors and touts them as top-quality. We are extremely disappointed in the work that was done, lack of communication, and in their philosophy of "making the customer happy". They seemed very defensive when we saw problems and asked for corrective measures. In our view, we apparently insulted them by calling the work "shoddy". If you are new at building a home , be more observant. Look at the details. Are the walls and floors straight, plumb, and level? Be sure to check your plans to see that everything you expect is there and installed correctly. Do not take for granted that your builder is really looking out for your best interests or checking the quality of their construction work. They are on a schedule, want to make money and move on to the next project.
