We loved their manner, and they were very wonderful with us.  We also bought the mobile home from them and they did a very good job with us on that as well.

FPALM HARBOR HOMES
In March of 2011, we visited the Seguin, Texas Palm Harbor Homes office to look at homes and see how much they cost.  We were pleasantly surprised and treated kindly by a salesman and the General Manager, Seth Roberts.  After talking with them a bit, we told them we wanted to shop around and compare with other mobile home companies.  They understood and wanted us to make sure we looked for certain things; one being the sinks in the bathrooms.  We were told to pay attention to the sinks because the other companies used plastic sinks and Palm Harbor had porcelain ones.  Sure enough the model home we were interested in at Palm Harbor had porcelain sinks in the baths and the competition did not.  It was one of the selling points that got us to come back.  When we came back, the salesmen gave us a floor plan of the home we were interested in, attachment 1 and put in writing on that plan the price we would have to pay and the extras that came with it including Hardi-plank siding, a 6X8 deck, installation and hookup of existing utilities and additional benefits for paying cash.  I should point out at this time, our property had a 1982 mobile home in place that we would need to have removed before having a new home installed in it's place.  At the first meeting at Palm Harbor, they said they could help us with that and they knew of a hunter that would pay us $3,000.00 for the home and remove it.  It all sounded great and we left happy.  We returned a few days later and made our color and material selections.  From this point on we were dealing with Seth Roberts, General Manager, and no longer had contact with the other salesman.  We informed Seth that we were happy with the colors of the model we looked at and wanted it exactly the same.  He wrote that down on the form and said he would place the order.  We gave him the $1,000.00 deposit check.  We had to come back a few days later to confirm the options and colors so he could complete the order.  I found this odd and a bit annoying due to the fact that we had to travel 30 minutes to get to the office and I thought that had already been done.  On that visit Seth informed us that they no longer made the model we wanted but the Woodland III model was the exact same except the Master Bath was rearranged differently and the guest bath was at the end of the hall, instead of between the other two rooms.  This is all that was mentioned as a change and we signed off on the new floor plan, attachment 2. We also chose our ICON connections at that time.  The new floor plan shows a larger living room and a much smaller kitchen but this was not mentioned at all by Seth.  This is the kind of deceit that is at the root of our frustrations.  We experienced several things that we were told orally that would happen and they were not put in our contract.  We fully understand that we signed off on exactly what we got, but are extremely frustrated and disappointed that Palm Harbor practices such shady business tactics.  We came back again on 3/14/11 and again we went over colors, options, etc. so the order could be placed.  At that time Seth gave us a different price than was first quoted.  It was including the prices for laying the base and other preparations for installing the home.  This was very unexpected due to the fact we were given a quote ($48,855) in writing and had asked if this was the final price including everything necessary and were told that it was.  The new final price was about $3,000.00 more and we just could not afford that at that time and told Seth we would have to wait about six months or so in order to save more money.  Seth got very concerned about this and told us that he knew that Johnny Systma with Alamo Transportation would purchase our existing home for $7,000.  If that happened we could move forward with the new home purchase.  I asked Seth to give that to me in writing and he did.  We were given a delivery date for the new home of 4/26/11.  Within a few days, Seth called me and said he had a potential buyer for our home and asked if a man named Van could come look at the home.  Van looked at the home and was interested in buying it.  It was agreed through Seth that Van would give us a check for $7,000 and we would have that at closing.  Our closing was scheduled on April 21st and there still was no check from Van.  Gail Shaefer, who handled our closing, said that we could write a check for $7,000 less than what was due until we got the check from Van, since Seth had promised in writing the house would be sold for that amount. Due to a miscalculation that Gail made, we paid all but $6,000 at closing.  We were also told that there had been a delay at the factory and the delivery date was changed to a week later.  At this point, I have to say that it would have been nice for someone to tell us up front that there could be delays and to plan for them.  This never happened.  We do not buy mobile homes every day and do not know what all is entailed.  We assumed we were dealing with courteous professionals and they would prepare us for all possibilities.  Instead when delays happened, they just said "well delays sometimes happen and that has to be expected".  When Seth gave us the date of April 26th, he was firm on it and never mentioned the possibility of delays.  This is just another example of poor business practices.  We would have been prepared for delays had we known the possibilities.  On the day before we expected the old home to be moved off the property, we got a phone call from one of the contractors telling us that Van's funding had not come through yet and there would be a delay another week.  We were very frustrated at this point and told him we had in writing that Seth would give us $7,000 for the existing home and if the move didn't happen as planned we would take our $42,635.26 back and spend it somewhere else.  The gentleman had to check on some things and call us back.  He called us back within ten minutes and said the move would go as planned.  Another thing that Seth had told us when we originally met was that the existing house would be moved out on the same day the new home would be delivered.  We found this unbelievable because it seems like that would be a lot of work.  We asked him twice if they could really do that and he responded with the same answer, saying they would.  We figured that they are professionals and know what they are talking about.  The reason we bring that up is when it came time to move the existing house, Seth said the house would be moved on Wednesday, the base laid for the new home on Thursday and the delivery of the new home on Friday, and leveling of the new home on Saturday.  We reminded him what he told us about it happening on the same day and he said "well, it's a lot of work, it takes a long time to do".  We just wish the Palm Harbor employees would be honest up front and not lead people on to believe other things.  It's a very poor way of doing business.  Listed below are a few more things we were told and they never ended up in the contract.  We must reiterate that we are acknowledging we received what we signed off on in the contract, but we feel that Palm Harbor practices poor business ethics by telling customers what they want to hear and not following through with it in writing.  I will be warning everyone I can to either not do business with Palm Harbor or if they choose to, to get everything in writing and read all contracts to make sure they get what they are promised. We were told that our electrical hook-up to our barn would be connected at the electrical pole by the same electrician that was connecting our house, as long as my husband had it prepared to do so.  My husband did and the electrician did not do it.  We had to hire an electrician to do it costing us $300.  Whenever we called Seth with an issue or concern he would throw in our face "that he is doing all this stuff for free and what do we expect".  Very poor customer service and unacceptable behavior for a so-called professional.  We never asked him to do anything for free.  We were fully prepared to wait until we saved up enough money to pay for what needed to be done. We were told that the toilets would be dual flush toilets and the contractor doing the trim out had never even heard of those. The sinks in our baths were plastic and not the porcelain ones we had counted on.  The contractor doing the trim out called about that and said that we had signed off on the plastic ones.  Again, very disheartening and extremely poor business ethics on Palm Harbors part.  Where we come from honesty is the best policy and we would like to think when someone says something, they are honest.  It's just a shame that a business does this. While the home was being installed and we had questions and concerns, we would call Seth and voice our concerns and he would get upset and keep saying "I'm doing all this stuff for free…"  He even hung up on me once.  When choosing the colors and materials to be used in our home, we selected a color and material for the skirting. After the home had been delivered, we called Seth and asked about the skirting.  He said he would check on when that was getting done and get back to us.  A week later and after the home had been installed and all utilities hooked up and the trim out done, we called Seth to ask when the skirting was getting done. He said that the skirting wasn't in our contract.  Totally unbelievable deceit!  We asked him why he didn't tell us this last week when we called and he simply replied, "I forgot."  I would expect this response from a teenager, but not from a manager. My husband and I are just shocked and amazed that a company can treat it's customers this way.  No wonder the company has filed for bankruptcy.  I will be doing all I can to share my experience with the public in hopes I can prepare future home buyers to beware of the shady practices of Palm Harbor.

AMobile Home Headquarters
Mark and his crew tore down, moved and set up our mobile home in a new Park. They worked hard and consistently until the work was done and when there was a major problem during the move they worked to fix and repair the damage they didn't even cause. The home is older and the hitch broke, Mark found a new hitch, welded it on and boarded up the wall where it crumpled. His crew leveled the house to almost perfect. He removed the boards and did everything possible to push the damaged wall back in place. It doesn't look bad at all. Mark even bought extra bricks for the leveling and took the old tires to scrap to save us time and money. Mark also offered tips on where to find new skirting and panels to replace the damaged ones and offered to go with us when we bought it and offered his services (for a fee, of course) to help replace them and said he could also patch the insulation underneath the house. The crew was great! They answered my questions and were very polite. And boy! did they work. They didn't take breaks and they did the work quickly and efficiently. Mark explained that the crew that moved it the first time did not place the bricks or tie downs at the correct places and that his crew would do it right and it would be safer and distribute the weight of the home better. I would use them again for moving and I will call them for repair work on the exterior as soon as I can. If A++ were available as a rating I would give it gladly.

Excellent. I had a heck of a time finding someone who would work on plumbing on a mobile home. He came on a Saturday and came back on a Monday to do the second job. He was polite, cleaned up after himself and his prices are reasonable. He covers Bexar and Medina counties.

FRFA Construction
When he first started, I was at home to oversee things and he seemed to be doing a good job. However, as the job progressed while I was at work and my elderly mother was on site, his quality of work became horrible. He left huge gaps, didn't finish the caulking, cut a piece of board to cover a hole he left after he replaced the siding on the one room instead of putting trim up to finish it out properly, the access door in the skirting was installed where it is blocked by a tie-down and is unusable, installed the gable flashing with a gap where parts of it are not even touching the roof, and left gaps where the skirting comes together in corners. I contacted him by text, and he assured me he would take care of it. The past month has been nothing but "no show" appointments and empty promises. I have the text messages saved if needed. Left trash like water bottles on the ground when there was a trash can available, left pieces of materials all over the yard along with nails, and I was told after he started the job that the price didn't include removing the old skirting and siding which was left piled up in my yard. I had to pay someone an additional $450 to remove it.

AFull Spectrum Contracting LLC
We bought a mobile home in Apache wells 55+ community.  I did not like the fact that the whole house was paneling.  I initially wanted sheet rock installed in the whole house.  I contacted Full Spectrum and they suggested putting gripper primer on the paneling and filing in the grooves with mud, then texturing the walls and painting.  This was also a much cheaper way to achieve the look I wanted.  They also inquired if I wanted the bathroom remodeled.  We had plans to remodel the bathroom any way, so I asked to put that in the price quote.  The price was very reasonable, so we agreed.  I am very happy that we agreed and the bathroom looks fabulous.  The price was over what was originally bid, but there are problems you encounter with a mobile home that you don't with a stick built house.  The project was completed in approximately 3-4 weeks and we couldn't be happier with the results.  Will definitely use them again.  Floyd and Sue are great people to work with. Keep in touch.

Brian came out to look at 3 projects around June 21st. Projects were bathroom remodel, chain link fence, and gutters. Finally received the quote on June 27th after it was sent to the wrong e-mail. The fencing price was almost double the other two quotes I'd gotten so marked that off the list. I decided to go through with the other two projects mid July and booked the job to start work on August 27th. I wanted a particular shower and sent the picture on July 20th to Brian but got no word back. Sent a follow-up e-mail on Aug 2 and received a response from Brian on Aug 3 saying they had found a few and would send me an e-mail with a pic or link of the one they chose the following week. Well I left the following week for vacation and got back on Aug 23. Wendy called me on Aug 24th to confirm for Monday and tell me that their guy would be here around noon because he was finishing up a project. I asked her if they got my shower and she said she wasn't aware I needed one and would get with Brian. So I also asked when I was supposed to choose flooring. Again she did not know I needed any. So they told me they would pick a shower up over the weekend and would see me on Monday. Monday August 27th, around 11pm I checked my e-mail to find an e-mail from Brian stating they could not get a 60" shower like I wanted because it had to be special ordered and would take 9 days to come in. I called Wendy in which she told me they had tried to call me that morning (mind you they had and have called me several times with no problems and I had no voicemail that day). So an hour before they were due to show up I found out they weren't coming and we were going to have to reschedule for Sept 10th. Thinking the remodel would start on the 27th, my fiancé and I had demoed the master bath and moved out of our bedroom for the project. On Tuesday, Sept 4th I called to confirm everything was still good & was told it was. Shower was on order & so was flooring (I had to drive to their vendor the week before to pick it out). On Thursday, Sept 6th, I received a phone call from Wendy that the shower order had been cancelled over Labor Day weekend because they used their PO Box as a shipping address and the vendor could not ship a shower to a PO Box. The e-mail the vendor sent was overlooked and therefore there was no way I was getting my shower by the 10th. So needless to say I was rescheduled again for 8-9am on Monday Sept 24th. Wendy did call me as soon as the shower and flooring arrived and confirmed we were good to go for the 24th of Sept. I cancelled the gutter install and went with another company that came out right away and installed cheaper. On the morning of Monday Sept 24th, Brian showed up around 9-9:30 but just to drop off the shower as he notified me that Michael was finishing up at the last job. We talked about a few of my concerns which included a couple mirrors we did not take down because of the difficulty and hazard they posed. We came up with a solution to see what the walls looked like after the shower/tub unit was removed and go from there. He then left and told me the office would call to let me know if Michael would make it out. Couple hours later I got a call that he would be there the next morning. Michael did arrive on Tuesday Sept 25th. We did not chat as I was preoccupied and just showed him where the bathroom was thinking that Brian and he had communicated. About an hour or two later Michael came out and said he needed to go to the clinic because he has cut his finger badly. Apparently he and Brian hadn't talked because after he left I went into the bathroom to find he had been trying to remove the mirrors and that is how he got cut. I received a call from Ed a couple hours later letting me know Michael was still at the clinic getting stitches and they would call me back later in the day to let me know how they were going to proceed. I called the office back at 5pm after not hearing anything and was told they would call me back. Around 6 they did call me back and told me they weren't sure if Michael would be back in the morning but someone would be here. On the morning of Wednesday Sept 26th Monica called and let me know that Brian was coming out but a little behind. He did show up around 10 or so and get to work. He brought me into the bathroom a couple times to show me various things like the way the main house power was ran up through the floor with the tub pipes as well as how the floor was rotted and told me it would need to be replaced (I live in a mobile home). He stayed until about 6pm trying to get as much done as possible. On Thursday Sept 27th, Michael showed back up and told me Brian was coming back out to help him. The floor under the shower and tub unit had been built up because of the metal beams under the house and they were going to need to rebuild it for the plumbing. I was ok with that but then realized they never replaced the floor. When Brian got there he told me that they knocked out the rotted part and didn't want to have to charge me more to replace it and it should be fine. I left it at that. Michael was here late again this night. Michael had also let me know I was scheduled to have my flooring laid on Saturday morning. First I'd heard of this. On Friday Sept 28th, Michael came back by himself. Told him I wanted the flooring done during a week day and not on Saturday because we had plans. Later that day I got a call from Brian. They thought they were going to finish the remodel on time still (which would have been the 28th) and said the flooring guy could only come out on Saturday or maybe Wednesday evening. But they asked if I waited until Wednesday if they could still collect payment for the project today. I was not ok with this and just asked them to do it Saturday and I wanted Brian to do a walk through on Monday. He agreed. Needless to say Michael was not able to finish Friday and still had to tape and float the walls, trim the shower, and prime the walls. So he said he'd be back on Monday. After he left I went to check what had been done and noticed that the trim on the top of the new walls was only about 1" whereas everything else in the bathroom was 2 1/4" this bothered me because Brian had told me they would try to match it as best they could. So I took a trip to Lowes over the weekend and found trim that was the same size and matched it a LOT better. So I bought a piece. Michael showed back up around 11am on Monday Oct 1st. Although Michael had done some really good work I was a bit upset that my NEW flooring was not covered for the remainder of the remodel.  Michael was able to get most of the work finished on Monday but still had about 4 hours left to complete. He did replace the trim with the one I bought that matched. I told him I?d be available on Tuesday but they would have to leave at 2pm because I had an appt. So he said he'd feel more comfortable coming back on Wednesday instead. I said ok. On Tuesday, Oct 2 I received a call from Monica, during my appt, stating they wanted to make arrangements to finish and to call her back with a couple dates I would be available for. Of course by the time I got out of my appt they had closed down for the day and I couldn't talk to anyone to see why they weren't coming on Wednesday. On Wednesday Oct 3rd I received a call from Monica letting me know that Michael and a helper were on their way out to finish up. They showed up and got to work. I think they left at 2pm and Michael said he'd let Brian know I was ready for my walk through as we had discussed. Late in the afternoon of Thursday Oct 4th I got the call from Monica for payment and she said she would run it on Friday. I asked about the walk through and she said Michael had told Brian he had already done it. I asked for an itemized receipt with my warranty certificate and was told she would send me the general receipt and warranty on Friday and I would get the itemized one by the end of the following week. Two Fridays have now come and gone I have not received ANYTHING! I find this company to have: LACK OF COMMUNICATION LACK OF PROFESSIONALISM LACK OF CUSTOMER SERVICE Even though by no fault of my own I was put out of my bathroom and room for  5 weeks and encountered problem after problem with the company they did not offer to compensate me or try and make things right. I take that back, when they first forgot to order my shower they said they would install a 48" shower and build me free shelves in the empty nook. I didn't want a 48" shower though I wanted a 60" so I said no. I even asked if they could at least install my new toilet and base boards. I was told they could install the toilet because they had to remove the old toilet to install the flooring anyways. But I was told they would have to charge me labor for the base boards (I already had the boards on site that I purchased). REALLY?? You couldn't take an extra 30 min to install the boards for me? Most people are probably asking by now why I continued to use the company. Well I had another contractor lined up that was a little cheaper but Alamo Handyman had such great reviews here on Angieslist that I decided to go with them. After the second mess-up on my shower I called my other contact but he was already booked & it would have been a month or two before he could fit me in. There are limited people that will work on mobile homes. Overall I think the work was good. There are some things here and there I am not 100% happy with but at this point it?s not even worth the hassle to complain to the company about it. Because of their lack of organization & pushing the reno back twice, we haven't even gotten a chance to completely finish the bathroom because of prior commitments we?d made thinking the reno would be done 3 weeks ago. We?ve been living out of the guest bed and bath for 6 weeks now. It will be completed today so we can move back into our room tonight.
