Our first fire in the outdoor fireplace that was built by Texas outdoor Escapes (#tonygodsey) caught fire and required the fire department to put the structure out. When we contacted Texas Outdoor Escapes / Tony Godsey he claimed all warranty was void due to lack of final payment. This was not a warranty issue, it is a insurance liability issue. They have yet to provide that certificate for coverage. The gross negligence around building the fireplace structure could have resulted in serious injury or death. The fire bricks were not stacked properly, there were gaps in the interior roof of the fireplace, and the fireplace was not made with fire mortar as necessary and required. Additionally during the course of the project Tony Godsey was unresponsive, negligent in his building practices, argumentative when discussing issues, and unprofessional. When researching a contractor prior to hiring Texas Outdoor escapes there was 1 bad review on line which Tony Godsey talked his way around. I implore you to research further before doing any business with this man or business. He claims to be a master carpenter, he is not. He gladly took our initial deposit in Dec 2017 which was months prior to his access to our project (due to pool excavation and decking). He ADMITTED to misappropriation of these funds (which is a felony), ran out of our project money and was unable to complete major milestones (i.e. roof, counter tops, railing for stairs, etc). We were willing to work with him and directly purchase items and deduct balance from final invoicing. That didn't even work, he failed to show up to the job site timely which ended in us parting ways. This business should not continue and Tony Godsey should go into a different line of work.

My wife and I wish we had never chosen Korbar Pools to build our pool. Our construction began in mid-April 2013, and was generally complete in July, with some issues outstanding. It is now 18 December and everything is still not complete. The ozone generator that was installed was made in 2011. It developed a leak and Steve Korbar has known about the leak for weeks but hasn't had it repaired. (Because of the leak, the ozone generator is not operational.) We have asked to have a new ozone generator installed; that has not happened. Mr. Korbar is very unresponsive and makes many, many promises that he does not keep. He ignores emails, texts, phone calls, messages. We are very sorry that we chose him to build our pool. We wish we had gone with Pool Concepts. They respond to calls and have even answered questions and helped us, even though we didn't choose them to build our pool. Mr. Korbar says he warrants his pools for 3-years. If you can't get assistance when you need it, what good is it? He is a one-man operation, so you have no one else to turn to if you need help. During the build of our pool he went on a golf trip in a remote area that did not have cell phone or e-mail coverage, or so he said. He did not tell us or his workers that he would be unavailable. This led to further frustration for his workers and for us. The situation has gotten so bad that we are considering legal action. If we do, it will be the first time we have seen fit to do so after being married for over 35 years and owning 7 homes in 4 cities. Finally, the pool is fully paid for and we made all payments (draws) on time. Now we feel cheated and lied to. Our decision to have Korbar Pools build our pool is one of the worst decisions we have made in over 35 years together.

Absolutely excellent! We observed the progress all day, they were done by 4pm. The shed is perfectly level, on concrete blocks, all the base wood is pressure treated so it will last (this is standard included in all of their work, not an additional charge like other shed companies). They placed the shed perfectly and worked in a very clean and organized fashion. At the end of the day all the debris was cleaned up and we had a beautiful new shed in the back yard!

We had Water Rock build our pool and outdoor living area several years ago that included a remodel to enlarge our home, which we get compliments on from everyone who sees it. We wanted to enlarge and add features to the pool/ patio area and had them back out. They were fantastic. They exceeded our expectations again and even covered our pool light upgrade as an in-house warranty. Can’t wait for them to build our cabana next year.

Jerry could not give a general time of arrival to build the shed and showed up when my wife was home alone. Shed was put up in record time. After checking out the shed, many irregularities were found. The 2x4's on front and back walls were improperly cut which means the 2x4's on those walls are nailed on wall supports that are 2'' x 2'' instead of the 2''x4'' studs. Additionally, workmanship through the entire shed is extremely poor. The roof has a 1 gap at the tip of the gable between wooden panels of the roof. Of course, these are covered with black paper and roofing. There are multiple gaps throughout the shed. Though the shed has not leaked water, it is not sealed and allows numerous types of animals to enter the shed. After the shed was completed, Jerry leveled shed using scrap pieces of 2 by 4 s including some area s where the shed is simply suspend in the air with no support.

Change orders were paid in cash outside of construction loan. Problems started when concrete slab fee was increased (after pouring) by 33% (from $30 to $40K) w/out any warning or discussion about alternatives, etc. Builder became irate that I should expect to be advised of this type of change/increase. From that day until we took possession of the house, the builder "nickel and dimed" us to death - at closing we understood that we had @ $3K due from allowances we had not fully used. The builder said that that $ was used to "pay for overruns" - since I had paid cash for all such costs, I challenged that statement. The builder essentially turned and walked away. Various people have advised that this is a very typical "builder behavior" at the end and I may as well get back to living. But I do want anyone who deals w/ Designs by Liestyle to be aware that the builder's charm ends when the first problem arises. Another item discovered during a routine septic inspection (as I am writing this posting!) - the electric line to the septic pump was 230v vs 110v and had not been connected. Fortunately the routine inspection discovered the back up before there was in-house damage. Currently trying to ascertain if this was builder's responsibility.

They don't have lean-to sheds on display at their Zangs Drive location, but I asked and they showed me a catalog of all their designs that included the lean-to. I wanted the roof slant reversed and that was no problem for them. The shed was pre-built in sections, then delivered and completed on site and painted. The guys who did the installation were punctual and courteous, and they finished the job in about three hours. I had lots of suggestions from friends and family about what else was needed, but the best suggestion was to purchase a sheet vinyl remnant and have it installed to cover the plywood floor. I think Tuff Shed could have done the flooring, but I suspect it was cheaper to use the remnant. One thing I learned in the process was that the sheds on display at Lowe's, Home Depot, etc., are usually built by Tuff Shed.
Recent Review: From start to finish both projects were done efficiently and to a high quality standard. We weren't really sure how to handle placing a cover over our existing slab. Brad came out and really helped us with design suggestions and we could not be happier with the end result. Really beautiful work. All minor problems we experienced along the way were handled swiftly to ensure we were happy even with the finest details. Brad was on the site every morning to check in on the progress of the work. We were also very impressed with Justin who managed all of the electrical work and went above and beyond to not only get the work done quickly but making sure everything matched and had a high quality appearance. Every worker from the builders, the painters, the stone workers etc... were all very professional and did an excellent job. This is not our first renovation project. We have used other companies before on indoor projects and Westphall honestly stood out as the best we've worked with so far. We will definitely use them again for any future renovation projects. We were 100% satisfied and I would highly recommend them to others.

Recent Review: From the beginning the sales dept provided me good information to make a decision on style, etc. The builders came out to work on one of the hottest days and finished in under 8 hours. I noticed some minor discrepancies after the initial build and Mr Woolf personally came over later to fix the problem. This company is very customer oriented. I love my new shed and I highly recommend Woolf Sheds.
