Recent Review: Each time they've come out, the process has been very smooth.  Requests for quotes were promptly responded to, work began on time and completed on time.  Every person we spoke to was extremely courteous and very knowledgeable.   We've only run over budget one time, and that was due to some extra damage uncovered while repairing our eaves.

Recent Review: Bill Ducharme, the owner of this construction company, told us that he would be able to start the job in early summer, but his crew did not actually start until August. They also had other concurrent jobs while working on our house and so the entire process took almost 1 month! It took an entire week for them to replace the linoleum and do the other simple projects in the kitchen. The workers were very sloppy. They left piles of debris in the kitchen whenever they left for lunch and other breaks during the day. Most of the workers smoked and routinely left cigarette butts all over our lawn and on the front and back steps. We had to tell them many times that this was unacceptable behavior. The workers did not tack down the tarps they put over the front of our roof, even though they knew a big storm was coming. That night the rain destroyed the small cupola of our front roof and water streamed into our front hallway. This caused great damage to the walls in the hallway. It took almost 2 weeks to dry out. All that area had to be re-plastered and re-painted due to their carelessness. Ducharme himself rarely supervised his workers. Although he finally made them do the work to our satisfaction, the entire experience was a nightmare from start to finish. This is the worst group of contractors we have ever used.

Things were moving along fine for a bit, then completion dates were over run.  There were numerous inside items that were being worked on until well into August.  When it came time to work on the outside, Scott came to us and asked for more money "because the previous owner is having money problems..." and he didn't have the money to buy the wood for the deck or fence, which he said he was out buying the week earlier.  Then when it came time to build the fence, I looked up and gave Scott the number to the diggers hotline.  Well, he didn't call because he "built this house and knows where everything is."  As I was 100 miles away at a medical evaluation, I received a call from my wife stating that Scott had just hit the gas service line to the house.  At some point Scott tried getting my wife to call the utility company to have the gas shut off, it wasn't until she suggested calling the fire department that he called for help, all the while saying how this was all MY fault.  Then it took another week for Scott to finish installing the prebuilt fence panels from Menards because he would always have somewhere else to be and would leave his laborer here to work by himself.  When they left early that day, I was told that they were taking some panels back to his shop to build the gates (2 small gates and 1 large one for across the driveway), he had to measure another job first thing in the morning but they would be here by 9AM to put the gates on.  Well, by 1 in the afternoon he texted my wife, saying that the gates aren't built yet and they will be here first thing tomorrow.  I didn't hold my breath.  They did eventually show up and install the gates toady, but then loaded the truck and took off without a word.  There are some things that have yet to be finished from the Final Inspection that the inspector says need to be completed, like fire caulking the garage wall around one of the trusses.  I still have no driveway and no idea when to expect the driveway to be installed.  Scott has refused to have any contact with me ever since he cut corners by not having the yard located for underground utilities.  Scott has shown himself to be a liar and a thief as far as I am concerned.  This is unfortunate because his laborer is a good guy and does really good work.  If this work is not completed in its entirety very soon, I will have no choice but to contact the BBB and a lawyer.  This company certainly will not be hired for any further work here or by my family and they most likely will not be granted any work permits in the City of Brodhead based on how he has acted thus far. UPDATE:  Well, we called the paving company that we were told was paid to put our driveway in and was informed that they had not been paid for anything yet.  Now we have the 2 realtors and previous owner trying to contact Scott to find out why.  We were told by the previous owner that everything was paid for, Scott even said that the paving was paid for.  Scott has proven himself to be a thief and a liar.  Avoid this guy at all costs! UPDATE: I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID 9184091, and have determined that this does not resolve my complaint. For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below. Mr. Kapinski has a very interesting perception of reality. It is no secret that the initial workmanship of the home was good and appreciated by us. However, there are some major issues with the remainder of his response. I am at least happy that he recognizes that he was in violation of the contract by the completion date promises. The issue with the finish was brought to his attention much sooner than he states, it just took over a week for his plumber, Bobby to come out to the house and inspect the issues with the bottom of the tub and the shower. He stated that those marks were caused by the dry-wallers having screws in their shoes and stepping on the bottom surface. he informed us that the repair is the responsibility of Scott and he would be supplying him with the correct repair kit to fox the holes. I am not sure why he felt the need to say he built a "custom" cabinet to cover duct work, when that was part of the initial construction, and to be honest, it is nothing special. My 10 year old son could have built a better shelving unit. The gas leak was in no way my fault. I did point out the yellow paint on the curb, but also stated that there is no way to know where the line ran in the ground. I even looked up the diggers hotline for him to call as I believe I previously stated. This should be confirmable with his laborer, that was present during all of these conversations. He also made the comment to my wife after hitting the gas line, that he thought Scott should have had the yard located, but couldn't say anything because he didn't want to jeopardize his job. I did make the question of the fence falling under the original remodel construction permits, but said that was beyond me and differed to Scott who should have know better, as he states. From what I was told by people on the scene of the gas leak, Scott made a very bad impression on the Fire Department personnel and the Wisconsin Energy personnel and screamed many damns to my name. again, I was out of town during this time. When I discussed the final inspection issues with Scott, he said HE would just take care of the garage and not bother Wendy (the previous owner) with it. Again, I am disabled and can not do the work myself and would never make that statement. The contract was for the basement finishing, 2 storm doors and a fence. The quote that was signed and returned was for $6,090 down and $2,050 upon completion. Scott messed up the initial deposit with his bank and we had to make a special trip up on a sunday to get him cash so he could buy the carpet for the basement and then paid him the remaining difference when my wife arrived on wednesday. Then, we had Scott fix some trim around the garage and a transition deice in the kitchen and he was going to stain the fence white. On 07/27, Scott approached us and said he was having difficulties getting paid form Wendy for some things and if we wanted our deck (part of the sale agreement) and fence built, he would need more money. I have a printout from my bank as well as a copy of the check we wrote for $2,750 to Inside & Out Construction on that date. We had a verbal contract, but if he says we didn't then I guess we over paid by $700 and would like a refund, immediately! The driveway was discussed many times with Scott and he repeatedly stated that it had already been paid for. According to our conversation with Wendy, she said that Scott called her 2 days before the closing (7/13) and said he needed an additional $10,000 to finish the house. I find it very interesting that the tone of her email the he has attached is such as the phone conversation my wife has had with her have been VERY different. Thanks,
