Recent Review: Exceptional. We interviewed Tommy Dobson of Dobson Homes and within 10 minutes we knew he was who we wanted to build our home. His knowledge of construction techniques and costs, understanding of our vision, methods to hold subcontractors to a high standard, use of Co-Construct to document progress, attention to detail and commitment to personal involvement sold us on Dobson Homes. The process from vision to design to construction was smooth. Tommy's subcontractors performance exceeded by far our expectations. Bi-weekly site meetings made us feel fully involved and aware of schedules, problems and solutions. Dobson Homes Project Managers provided another layer of communication that was consistent, responsive and made us feel like our desires were theirs too. During construction Tommy made suggestions to improve on details that only show up when building is in progress - some items we had the option to pay for, many he did because he thought they were the right thing to do. After construction, his team responded to a few unfinished and punch list items quickly and efficiently. Our son, in the construction management business, visited recently. He told us that he walked through the house looking for poor workmanship, shortcuts in materials, poor finishing or painting - and couldn't find a single flaw. In short, we had a wonderful experience and recommend it with no hesitation or qualifications.

Reviews in Barboursville to Build Carports

DAndrea L. Danforth, Building Contractor
The first big oops happened when she forgot which way the deck boards were supposed to run and framed the deck (w/ the help of her children no less) w/ the supports running the wrong way. I had my earliest feeling things might only get worse about that time. I wish I'd listened to that inner voice saying how now would be a good time to look for someone else to complete things. As you can guess, it did only get worse. To be fair though, it must have been hard for her too given how little she actually knew about carpentry and her crew who knew even less. Her con was in the smooth talk that would placate my concerns with promises that things would all work out in the next step or, at the very least, in the end. Only she knew she wasn't going to finish it as promised. Handshakes are also meanginless her. Then one evening she disappeared w/ check, some of my possessions and many feet of lumber. Months later I'm still hiring people to fix or complete work that she'd promised would be done before winter set in, 3 months ago. The upside is that I've met a lot of very nice, skilled guys who do know what they're doing and I wouldn't have otherwise. Most importantly, I was able to cover up most of the truly horrible mistakes her crew made since she did little of the work that "shows". Except for the deck where some of the boards are slipping in their moorings already. And Trex had tried to design them work better. Don't ask how she screwed that up too but mainly, don't hire her.

DSaga Homes
Pretty bad experience overall. Sipes Construction, DBA Saga Homes was a mistake. It was truely a Saga to get out home done - and even with that we had to do a good portion of re-work to get some things done properly. If you want to pay someone to build your house and then have to be the project manager and QA person for them - their your guys. I don't recommend them. Key points - Little to no coordination and terrible communication from Scotty. He basically leaves the build up to what few employees he has and the sub’s to figure out. Most of the subs did a fantastic job – and his electrician was doing most of the coordination with the different crews. Some staff were problematic in several areas from a workmanship perspective and attention to detail. - Saga Homes / Sipe’s Construction had numerous errors between what was in the contract and drawings and how they were building. I had to correct them almost weekly to enforce what was in the contract and what the drawings detailed. - Scotty barely showed up on site and his staff and subs even let us know that he wasn’t often out. There was no one doing any QA checks on the build process except for myself, and it was a good thing that I knew what to look for and what they were supposed to do. We were also building our barn at the same time so I and my other help were out watching what was going on a lot of the time. - I’ve had to go behind them and fix numerous things that they did improperly from flooring, doors, trim, and especially a media outlet they totally botched for our TV. When we’ve tried to get them to address items – it’s taken way too long and even then, their ability to fix things properly has been lack-luster. Good luck if you choose to go with these folks.

it was all wonderful, amazingly so even though we were 1000 miles away.  they sent pictures of progress every day, devised new solutions on the job, added extras for safety and security that the architect had forgotten and so forth.  Plus were very friendly

FTraditional Homes of Albemarle,LTD
When I first received my contract for the house, the pages were nearly unreadable. They had made copies and reduced the size on the page down to about 60-75% view area, you needed a magnifying glass to read the print. The floor plans for the house were also so small and distorted, you can’t even see or read what they say. And when you ask for a better copy, they get somewhat of an attitude because you even asked. I don’t think it’s much to ask to have realistic size documents for your customer/buyer to be able to read. It just shows that they could care less about their customers. So I went in for my appointment at Traditional Homes of Albemarle (Builder) to pick out the colors and patterns for the interior/exterior stuff such as cabinets, tile, roof, and siding, in January 2017. They weren’t prepared and had to gather all of the stuff needed for the meeting, and couldn’t even get my name right. The examples and colors of the interior and exterior choices were extremely small in my opinion. I don’t have a problem with that, but at least have some pictures of the houses that you have already built for people to see the big picture. I suggested that they start taking pictures of the completed houses that they build in order to help with this. You would have thought I asked to rob the place at that point. With almost an offended type attitude one of the answers was, “we’ve never done it that way, and this is the way we do it.” You the customer are NOT the priority with these people in any way shape or form, and they do not like to have suggestions made on the way that they do things. They also made it a point to tell me that “They really don’t care if I buy the house or not.” I was also promised by all parties (Seller, Builder, and Realtor) that I would receive updates throughout the process on the construction and where we were at as far as completion date. I didn’t hear a peep from anyone for over two months (JAN-APR). And at about two weeks out from completion, they informed me that the house was 5 weeks behind on construction. So at that point I asked them what exactly the problem was and why we are so far behind. That question went ignored for about two weeks before I got anything resembling an answer. When I did get the answer, it was sent from the builder (Tim Carson) through the realtor to me by email. He couldn’t even address me directly on my questions about the house. And on top of that, the email was a disrespectful and condescending rant about how lucky I was to even be able to purchase this home at the actual selling price. Due to their lack of planning and foresight, they had gone $15,000.00 in the hole on the construction and excavating costs, so they had thoughts of raising the price of the home at that point. In my opinion, that was their own fault and they should be eating the 15K. Trying to make me feel guilty about their mistakes was completely unprofessional. The actual reason for the delays and added costs were never explained in that email either, so I never did get a detailed answer to my question. I was finally told through the realtor that the problem on the delay was the septic system. For whatever reason they didn’t have the slope of the property right in order for the system to drain properly. But the builder never took the time to explain this all to me, and couldn’t even meet me at that property to help me better understand the issue. The builder also stated to the realtor that he had forgotten to mention the septic system may cause some problems, this was also at the two weeks out time frame. So in my opinion, they already knew well in advance that they had improperly surveyed the property for a proper installation. And also knew that they weren’t going to meet the original completion date much sooner than two weeks out. Neither the builder nor the seller offered up any type of good will gesture for causing this inconvenience. I actually asked them if they would epoxy my garage floor, and with that I would have been content. But that’s when the builder said no, and sent the ranting email to tell me how lucky I was. Tim Carson (Seller) talked a big game during initial meetings, and slowly broke off any contact after contract signing. Can't answer emails and goes through realtor in order to contact me, then doesn't even answer the questions at hand that are asked. Decides to go on rants about how lucky you are to be getting the house at the price quoted, based off of his lack of preparation and planning for the construction. Was also asked numerous times for documents that the lender and bank needed. Mr. Carson also never once offered to meet me at the property to take the time to explain what the issue was with the 5 week delay on construction. He seems to get offended when you ask any question about the construction and what the delays are. The arrogant and disrespectful attitude presented in just about all cases with him and the seller is, “we don’t care if you like it or not, this is the way we always do it” and “consider yourself lucky that you are the one buying the house, because we can sell it to anyone.” The realtor Sharon Wood will not be recommended to anyone in the future by me. Very hands off and lacks communication in all aspects. Not a peep from her on progress for 2 months until the bank called her out on mass email. Accepts unprofessional and disrespectful responses from Tim Carson and traditional Homes. There were a few cabinets across the house that were warped and installed incorrectly. After numerous visits and explanations on the problem, it took them 6 months to complete the correction on the cabinets. But they failed to fix the worst one in the house that was in the kitchen along with actually fixing the wrong cabinets on two occasions. Once I received an answer back as to why the ball was dropped, I was once again surprised by their lacking reasoning. They said that I informed the person that did the initial inspection on the doors that I told them the wrong one. Well, not only did I show the cabinets to them, I also put sticky labels on ALL of the cabinets in the house that were deformed. So trying to deflect the incompetency was pretty unprofessional. Once we identified the mistakes they once again made by installing the wrong door, I had to wait another 4 months for them to come and fix the mistakes. Two of the main doors (Front door & Garage) were installed improperly and would not close correctly. They did come and make an attempt to fix both doors, but it was a lazy effort fix by putting a wedge under one of the doors to even out the frame. This was never explained to me and I found it by accident while cleaning my garage one day. So Traditional Homes of Albemarle sent the guy back out to look at the doors once again. Only problem was the fact that he had just had surgery and literally could barely walk. So there was no way that he could even go upstairs to inspect the door. I contacted the builder (Traditional Homes of Albemarle) about my HVAC making a strange noise when shutting down in heat mode. I was informed 2 days after they were supposed to be there that they never showed up. They were supposed to contact me about rescheduling the appt. So at this point we are right up against the one year warranty on the house expiring. So they chose to let that pass without contacting me and completely broke contact. Once again, very professional behavior. During all of this time that I was having the issues with everything, Mr. Davis the other party of Traditional Homes of Albemarle, completely went hands off in helping fix the issues. They were actually building another house directly across the street from me about 6 months after I bought mine. I saw him over there numerous times while I was home and also driving by on the way home. Not one time did he come over and check to see how things were going with the house. This information is here for you to take in when you are considering building/buying a new home. I’m sure that other experiences with these people are varied, but this was mine. This being my first home purchase, It turned out to be a pretty painful experience overall. I would not recommend going with any of these people for your home building or purchase needs. It will also be interesting to see how quick their response will be to this review, im sure it will be much quicker that their customer service.

It’s our advice that you stay away from Croft Custom Homes/Dominick Montie and instead find a custom home builder that will partner with you to deliver the custom home that you truly desire and not a haphazard structure built by unlicensed subcontractors outside of the parameters you want. Our family had the misfortune to place our trust in Dominick Montie, President of Croft Custom Homes and also the sole employee, to build our 5 bedroom house in Albemarle County. Our first indication that something was wrong was the ‘REJECTED’ building permit that we received in the mail due to permit paperwork that had been done incorrectly with Albemarle County. When we pressed to have the corrected permit paperwork submitted to start the building process, Dominick’s response to us was ‘Yes, got it and submitted today. I was in a hurry and didn’t even look at it…’. At this point we had already lost weeks due to his negligence and lack of attention to detail and ground hadn’t even been broken yet. We had a ‘Cost Plus Fixed Builder’s Fee’ contract and during the coming months we would ask him specifically to show us the costs of the build which we were liable for. His response upon multiple requests from us was ‘That’s outside the scope of this contract.’ He didn't deliver the actual costs until roughly 4 months into our build. Later we found out that our foundation cost was almost 50% higher than his stated budget number and we were responsible for that cost which was roughly $15,000. It was stated in the contract that all work would be done in a ‘workmanlike manner’; what we found out later was some of the crews that had been hired and provided us with quotes for framing the house were unlicensed in the state of Virginia (or anywhere else). We explicitly asked Dominick if the framing contractor was licensed and he responded multiple times that they were. The quality of work of this crew also created additional problems as we’ve had to fix issues that would have been code violations and fix issues dealing with incorrect measurements that have change the structure of the house in the time since Dominick has been associated with our build. The typical time frame as stated by multiple other local builders to frame our house should have be ‘2 weeks, three weeks tops’. It took Dominick Montie more than 6 weeks and the house is still not fully framed. The severe delay and inability to complete this in a timely manner, far outside the normal industry time frames, has resulted in substantial mold issues with the house that has been verified by an outside laboratory and now additional costly remediation's are needed. These issues were caused by our building materials laying in the mud, uncovered in the rain, and left to sit in puddles of water and sawdust despite our requests that he stop compromising our building material which we bearing the cost of. It’s our opinion that Dominick Montie’s business acumen as well as his personal ethics and lack of integrity have severely hurt our family and our desire to build our ‘forever’ home. We are now compromised financially, personally, and have a half-built house that he is still delaying legally as of the date of this google review. It’s our opinion that you will be given a low quality house and be taken advantage by Croft Custom Homes and Dominick Montie if you decide to build a house with unless he has a remarkable change in his quality of work, attention to detail, and starts following a moral compass.

In my experience, Tracey Meade was rude, offensive, insulting and hard to deal with in any professional way. She demanded to be the contact person for all issues, yet was defensive and curt with every answer to any questions we had.  There were mistakes on the job that had to be corrected (windows where doors should be, wrong flooring installed, wrong calculation of price of patio, etc.) however, when these issues were pointed out, we were literally told, "what do you expect? This is affordable housing"  OMG, it was mid-price housing at the time. We were paying clients!  We had to fight with them about everything - Ex.: missing light in pantry. I had to provide them with written proof it was on the building list before they would put a raw light bulb socket in. Detail work was bad.  Light switches and temp guages were installed in the middle of the walls. They refused to move them because "they were still within code".   The house has been fairly structurally sound. Typical settling issues: cracks in paint everywhere, molding separation. When asked to replace multiple warped doors within the first 6 mos, it was left to the discretion of their "foreman"... therefore, no. He didn't think they were bad enough for replacement (because it would cost them money), so there was no recourse. There was a water leak in bathroom ceiling after 8-9 years. Found out they installed the pipe and cap to the fan vent UPSIDE DOWN so all water from rain and storms came IN instead of out for years!   It was a horrible building experience. I would NEVER recommend them to anyone interested in building or remodeling a home.  I hoped they would go out of business before now.

AJ.A. Tompkins Inc.
The best person EVER to deal with.  Building a home is usually very stressful.  Not with Jeff Tompkins (JAT,INC) My husband always has many questions and Jeff had the patience to explain everything to him. The workmanship is superb. When we sold our home in Louisa, the home inspector stated that he'd never seen a home in such great condition.  Jeff works with you regarding affordability and quality in your home. He returns calls immediately and doesn't "disappear" after the job is done. We liked him so much we are now having him build us a home in Ashland. If you want a great individual to work with in building a home, garage or even updates to your present home I very highly recommend this builder. You will never be sorry.

CBackyard Boys Enterprise
Brandon seems like a very nice guy but the professionalism needs improvement. The quote we were given was significantly less than the final bill. We were quoted $600 and we knew the add on of mulch and frame would increase the final bill to roughly $1200 but then the final bill came in at $1600. The logic was not there to understand the difference. And most importantly, if I'm paying premium pricing, I would prefer premium service. The number of times that he mentioned pieces were missing but I am showing him "nope, the piece is right here" was silly. He should have been better organized. He explained he needed to screw in four posts because they fabricated the holes incorrectly... he put them in upside down! But I'm being charged for the screws. Again, I think he was a nice guy, but I also think he was green and did a poor job giving a quote and staying organized. When I'm paying for the mistakes, it's disturbing.
