Recent Review: Estimator was punctual and extremely professional. Explained the process in detail and answered all my questions patiently. We picked out colors. We got a reasonable estimate and scheduled pressure washing. Called them with our color choice and set up date for washing. They did a great job and did not mess up our yard. The painter was on time, professional and answered my questions. He was careful of our plants and re-installed our bird feeders, which was appreciated! We were extremely please and are considering having them do some inside painting over the winter.

CHAVER DESIGN & CONSTRUCTION INC
It didn't go well, although it was not all Haver Design's fault. The architect was delayed until September in getting plans together, and in October Haver Design said they could build the porch and addition before winter and were in a rush to get going.  They said they could move the shed out of the way so that a new cement floor could be placed underneath.  In November they moved ahead with the architect to have the project split into two phases to speed up obtaining the permits while we worked on the rest of the details. They scheduled a start on the foundation before we had even gone over the plans with the architect or had even signed a contract with them or compared them with the two other contractors we were talking to, for that matter. Once they started (by then early December), the shed turned out to be too heavy for them to move as planned, and they ended up partially crushing it between a bobcat on one side and a heavy backhoe that they ran across our front yard leaving deep ruts and cracking our brick patio. While constructing the framing for the foundation they had to make several changes on the fly before the cement could be poured, because details had not been adequately discussed between us, the architect and them, and then the building inspector did not approve the changes.  When the cement was finally poured, a winter snowstorm blew in and buried the warming blankets stopping the project until spring. We finally got the contract after the fact and paid the bill after removing the items that they didn't get to. (In the spring after frequent requests to have the warming blankets removed, K&M, the subcontractor, finally removed the blankets and revealed an ugly muddied blanket pattern completely covering the cement patio and floors. They promised to fix it, but it hasn't happened yet. Also over the winter the concrete step down from the porch floor outside the back door filled with snow and water and leaked into the house. Haver came out and put a tent over the door which slowed down, but didn't stop, the water from coming in and soaking our carpet. In the meantime we worked with the architect to modify the plans to change the new screen porch to a 3-season porch to protect the back door in the future, and to swap out the old windows for new ones in the remodel on the second floor.  Haver, rightly so, wanted to revise the contract to reflect these changes. The revised contract seemed higher than we expected, and while we were in the process of trying to discuss these changes, Tom Haver would not answer our calls and emails and then abruptly told the architect that he could no longer finish the project because he had too many other "signed" projects already going... and then left us in the lurch to find somebody else who wasn't too busy to finish our project.  Needless to say it took months to get new contractors lined up, and the project is still not complete one year later, and the landscaping won't be done now until next spring.

FAdams Design Construction
The  work was delayed and sporadic. The decking material (an installation of Playguard squares) was applied on the morning of the first significant snowfall. I realized the deck was not level. Because the deck is on the northside of the house, we had to wait until spring to walk on the surface and experience the user-unfriendly slope. In the meantime, I withheld final payment ($4,000) and Adams sent a preliminary notice that he woud place a lien on my property ? but, he did not follow through. In spring, the building inspector noted that the first-floor porch did not drain away from the house ? melting snow and water pooled in the center. Adams returned to shore up the porch floor, but it still did not pass inspection. There were other problems: The saved stair railing was installed upside down, and the new railings on the upper deck were placed flush with the deck surface (not allowing rain drainage into the gutters). The railings were also different from the design submitted to the city?s landmarks staff. Adams discounted my concerns about the upper deck. He said a consultant chose the Playguard surface and it was installed correctly. He never addressed the slope. We agreed on a payment of $2,000 -- half of the remaining $4,000. I hired another firm to remedy the lower porch drainage. They also replaced warped porch floorboards. They charged me $3,000. After a year, I felt water dripping from the upper deck onto my head, as I was sitting on the porch -- two or three days after a summer rain. I picked up a corner of a Playguard decking square and saw stagnant water. Water was also trapped along the three edges of the deck, because the railings were flush with the surface, and there was a lip on the lining installation that blocked rain drainage to the gutters (The newly installed gutters were always dry.) Brownish water stains had appeared along the supporting columns and the frames of the porch screens, and mold had started to grow on the wood screen door to the porch. I emailed Adams for the name of the subcontractor who installed the membrane under the Playguard surface on the deck. Adams emailed back, saying the subcontractor had gone out of business and there was no warranty. I finally contracted with a third firm that also works on historic homes. They removed the Playguard squares and the roof  membrane, and installed a waterproof material that allows water to flow to the gutters. They provided a warranty. They installed a level deck, slightly elevated above the new lining. (I can finally place furniture and flower pots anywhere I desire.) They reconfigured the deck railings to match the design submitted to the city?s landmarks staff, and raised them so water drains freely into the gutters. They made several other adjustments, including turning the railing on the steps, so it?s no longer upside down. That cost me $14,000. In the end, I paid twice for the original contract.
