    Doug really was the best part of our days with him! He is knowledgable, professional, courteous, affable, and a hard-worker. We love Doug and absolutely love his remodel. His suggestions and expertise brought about our collaborative vision! You cannot go wrong with Doug! As a professional contractor, he also removed walls, built new walls, and basically had his hands in every aspect of our whole remodel.

    Worked with Doug and Erin in two phases to reface fireplace, paint and interior design services for master bedroom, living room and hallway. We had used Doug and Erin earlier in the year to completely remodel our kitchen. They are both easy to work with and professional in all the work they do. If you want to work with someone who does excellent work, has integrity and is honest, please choose Doug and Erin Van Patten.

    Doug and Erin are very professional and creative artists. They took the time to find out what we wanted to accomplish. They offered suggestions and were very easy to work with. We were very comfortable having them in the house. They did meticulous work. We would hire them again.

    It went very smoothly. We were out of state while the work was done. Doug kept us up to date with pictures and regular reports. He was able to get the job done in a timely manner and in the budget we had discussed. We feel confident that we can leave our home in his capable hands whenever we need work done.

    Barenz Construction had difficulty reading blueprints for vital support structure and drainage systems for  a 2,100-gallon indoor therapy pool.  To avoid  costly corrections with the drainage system in the flooring of this building, Mr Barenz quit the job when he did not get his 4th of 5 installment checks in advance after a 6-month contract. The homeowner confronted this contractor with the lack of the drainage system in the floor and she refused to write another check until this issue was corrected.  He quit the job 5 days before the end of the contract and then claimed that the homeowner had fired him 7 months after he quit (Feb 2014) to avoid having to make any construction corrections. His billing was horrible (fraudulent) and when asked to met to discuss the billing issues x 3 over a 90 day period, he simply ignored me without giving any reason (because he had quit).  So I filed an AZ ROC complaint.  He did not make good on any of his construction errors because of his claim "that he was fired".  His structural and drainage issue are still outstanding issues as of today (18 months later).  I would highly recommend that you do not use this dishonest contractor, who has problems following blueprints and has fraudulent bookkeeping.

    I called 3 contractors to get an estimate on the remodeling we wanted.  Doug was the only contractor that answered his phone at the time I called.  I left messages with the other 2 contractors and they never even called me back.  Doug and his wife Erin came to the house to get the information for an estimate.  At the time I thought I knew what I wanted, but they came up with some ideas that I would have never thought of (which I used).  He gave me the estimate in the time frame promised and also started the job in the time frame we agreed to.
     The master bathroom had a small shower and garden tub (which I never used).  We needed a bigger shower and Doug was able to remove the tub and replace it with a beautiful tiled shower.  I did not know what kind of tile I wanted in the shower so I just told Doug to go with and do what you want.  It turned out beautiful and is the envy of the neighborhood.  In the guest bathroom Erin came up with the idea to put a glass tile frame around the fiberglass tub and shower that we were not replacing.  That little feature made a world of difference in the look of the bathroom and really made it look custom.  The lights, cabinets, counters, mirrors, hardware, toilets and flooring were changed in both bathrooms.
     The kitchen was the biggest change.  All the flooring was changed from laminate to 18 inch tile flooring.  I was going to replace all the cabinets to a darker wood and to have a couple of cabinets larger to give more of a customized look to the kitchen.  Doug suggested that I have the old cabinets refaced and just replace 2 cabinets for the dimension I wanted.  The cabinets came out beautiful and is just the look I wanted.  All the fixtures, granite counter tops, and back splash are just stunning and went way beyond my expectations.  There were a few changes that I made as the job progressed that Doug took in stride.
    During the entire remodel, Doug always made sure that I was able to live in the house with a working bathroom.  Having both bathrooms remodeled at the same time made it a little challenging.  Doug also kept everything as clean as possible during the entire 2 months it took for this project.
    My husband was not home at the time of the remodel and all he could say when he got home was "this belongs in a magazine". We are both very happy with the out come of our home.  
    We highly recommend Doug for any construction project you may have.

    Doug Van Patten
    We got several bids on building our new house. We liked Doug because he worked on a cost plus basis and had stacks of bids to back up his overall bid.  That really gave us the opportunity to have the information in front of us to pick and choose where we wanted to spend extra money or cut back.  Doug started out being very helpful getting the plans through the HOA and county for permits.  He even prepared the color board for the HOA, saving us the $1,000 the architect was going to charge.  Of course there have been problems building, but none created by Doug.  As problems occurred, he kept open communication and did a great job explaining what the problem was, the cost and various options.  Doug has a very artistic eye and good common sense.  If I ever do another build, he will be the first call I make.

    I would have said Lloyd from Luvco Construction himself was a perfectionist, but he hired the cheapest sub-contractors that he could and with the consequences that things just didn't get done well. The price was average.

    You should be aware that this is a small operation, and Doug was somewhat over-committed in his personal and professional life during this period.  It took more than a week to get a bid, and even when presenting the bid he was hedging a bit as to price and could not commit to schedule at that moment.  I had 35 years experience in the construction industry before my recent retirement, and I knew what I was in for.  This project would be slow, and my husband did not want to be inconvenienced.  Still, Doug shared my vision of the end-product, not to mention he quoted a killer price.  I had to press him to clarify what he was presenting was his best guess of what it would end up costing, but the work would be done on a time and materials basis.  He was not giving me a solid "this is it" price as the other 3 contractors submitting designs and quotes were doing.  He wanted to use the quote as the form of contract, and would not be presenting a formal contract (although he assured me he used contracts for his larger projects).  I checked his contractors licenses and bond, finding no complaints.  We moved forward; but if you ignore every other word in this review, please listen to these 10:  NEVER DO WORK WITH A CONTRACTOR WITHOUT A FORMAL CONTRACT.  You will have NO protections should there be an accident during the course of construction or should the contractor flake on you or provide substandard work.  Ask for proof of insurance, too.  If his worker is hurt or damage is caused, you might get stuck with the bill.  Do as I say, not as I do. 

    As I had guessed, the project did go slower than it would have had I used one of the other 3 contractors, and they would have been doing more work due to their insistence on scrapping everything and starting anew.  Doug shared my vision to save as much existing as possible and improve upon it.  Important: the subcontractors that Doug brought into my home were trustworthy, hard working individuals.  I felt comfortable leaving them alone and even leaving the house on errands.  There were very few outside workers (only 4 in this case) as Doug does most of the work himself.  I appreciated the lower number of strangers given access to my home.

    The end result is PERFECTION.  It is everything I had hoped for and more.  Doug was flexible and our mutual vision evolved during the course of the work, so I'm glad it went slowly.  If you can be patient (which is so very, very hard in this stressed-out, instant gratification world we live in), you can have perfection too.

    Mr. Savage does not do the work himself nor does he visit the site. He almost never answers his phone or returns telephone calls. My unofficial contractor contacted him because Savage had done work for him in the past. My contractor is a very nice guy and is very non-confrontational and I had to take over dealings with Savage.  
    Savage Development is not a real development company that I can find.  Warren only contracts for site grading, septic installation and the destruction of construction schedules.
    The workers from Savage Development appear to be competent and polite but, in the eight months of construction of my small cottage they never ONCE came on time or on the day they committed to arrive. We had to call Warren many times before he responded (always to my nice guy contractor, never me) with a new day and time. Again they would not show up. On numerous occasions we had to postpone other tradesmen and interfere with their ability to do their jobs as promised.
    Savage bills long after the work has been completed (i.e. he has been fired) and does not bill in the same format that he bids, so you never REALLY know for what you are paying. My contractor tried to figure it out and line it up but it was never to my satisfaction. It is obvious that Warren has little, if any, business acumen or respect for his customers. The other Trades with which I worked were all more professional, intelligent, socially appropriate and responsible than Warren Savage. 
    I greatly regret listening to my contractor and not firing Savage. He has never finished the jobs for which he bid. I finally had to cut my losses and hire others to finish the job. Warren's was the lowest bid and it ended up costing more than the difference in lost time, delayed inspections, overruns from other trades and aggravation. In the last few weeks neither my contractor nor I have managed to speak to Savage. A women (Girlfriend? Wife? we do not know. She wouldn't say.) has returned occasional calls and speaks for Warren. She has no idea what Savage bid or did, she only wants money. I will never work with Warren Savage again and recommend that you run screaming into the night to a qualified, bonded, professional excavating company.
