    Chase Construction Inc of Orlando
    Very well. Of the hundreds of decisions needed to be made during a stressful, complete renovation of a home, hiring Dan with Chase Construction was easily the best decision we made. Very professional, down to earth, honest, highly skilled, very organized. Any problems were corrected immediately. Job site kept clean and neat. Employees and sub-contractors were all top notch and respectful of our property and neighbors. Contractor came up with innovative solutions to unique issues. He has gone above and beyond in service, responsiveness and professionalism.

    Seem like a nice guy and presented well. Then I did not hear from him, so I called 1st week in August and he said he would get it to me he was busy with a big project.  Still nothing as of 8/21/13,called again, he said he is very busy, and has had to turn down other work so he will not be able to do the estimate or work.

    Hingle Erickson Construction
    the first project....
    the original scope of work:
    build a 22?x24? double detached garage with paver driveway at our personal residence
    the quote:
    We started by getting 4 quotes for this project (2 of the contractors were recommended by a friend).  We set up an appointment with Larry so that he could get the details of our project.  He arrived on time and was extremely personable and professional.  When he was about to leave he asked if it would be possible to present his quote face to face rather than by phone, email etc.  Of all the contractors, he was the only one who asked for this opportunity.  We didn't think anything of it at the time, but in the end, this additional meeting and that he was one of the contractors recommended to us was what sold us on using Larry and Hingle Erickson as our general contractor for this project.  When Larry presented the quote, he created transparency in every cost involved in the quote  (nothing was hidden).  Each piece of the project was itemized from architect fee?s, permit fees, doors & windows, electric, framing etc as well as Larry's fee for supervising the project.  All of the other contractors just provided a ?total price which was either presented by a phone call or email.   Larry's quote was not the lowest or the most expensive, but it was the one we had the most confidence in.  He was also the only one that we felt we had already stated to developed a partnership with.   He was also the contractor who  had invested the most his own time into bidding for the project (quote and presentation)
    the final scope of work:
    this project more than doubled in size.  this was due to us adding additional work onto Larry?s plate as we were so satisfied and confident in what he was doing with the garage.   With the change in the scope of work NEVER did Larry ask to increase his supervision fee.  We however were not comfortable in it not being increased and offered to increase it.    The amount of the increase was left up to us to make, Larry did not dictate or influence what it would be.
    the quality of work:
    Larry has a very extensive list of subcontractors that he uses.  The quality of the work that all of them provided was exceptional.  
    The things that most impressed me:
    1. - things happened very quickly
    2. - people showed up when they were to complete their portions of the project
    3. - all of the subcontractors  kept the work site both outside and inside our house exceptionally clean and safe at all times.  When i commented to Larry that i greatly appreciated and was impressed by the way that the subcontractors kept things so clean, Larry?s comment was ?if the don?t work clean and safe, they don?t do work for me".

    the end result:
    The project was finished on time and the garage/driveway was completed under budget (even with us adding in some extras into the garage that weren?t in the original quote).  With the extras that we added, there was also never a change fee.  
    When it comes to details I?m exceptionally picky.  Design is my profession and I see every detail and imperfection.  i couldn?t be happier with the quality of work in every aspect of the project and the attention to detail that Larry also has.  Along the way if there was anything that I wasn't completely satisfied with, Larry made sure it was corrected to my satisfaction.  These instances were few, as Larry was on top of the details on his own.  
    The second project....

    the quote:

    When it came time to complete the remainder of the changes we wanted to complete in our home, we immediately turned to Larry and did not even approach any other contractors for quotes.   Larry was aware that we wanted to complete this project as cost effectively as possible while not sacrificing the end result.   Once again, Larry presented a transparent quote with every cost fully detailed.   During the presentation Larry offered many suggestions on how costs could be cut and was also willing to work with suggestions that we had too.  This required Larry to spend more time in pulling together all of the necessary facts to see if and how our combined suggestions for reducing costs would impact the final quoted price.  Larry obtained the information quickly, and once agreed upon the project was underway.
    the construction phase:
    Once again, everything was completed on time, under budget and with great attention to detail. In addition, even during the construction phase Larry continued to look for additional ways to cut costs.....  i had specified a specific type of stacked stone for the planters and fireplace, of which we had agreed to use.  During the construction phase Larry found an alternative stacked store that was 1/2 the price of the stacked stone that I had specified.  We went with his suggested alternate and I think it looks better than what I had originally specified and save us well over $1500
    the end result:
    we are completely satisfied with all of the work that has been done and in the professionalism and ethics that Hingle Erickson brought to our project as well as all of the subcontractors that they brought into the project.  if i personally could afford to do many more projects on our home, I would continue to work with Larry as my general contractor on all of them.  He's very easy to work with, very professional and he holds true on everything that he says he will do.   Larry is a general contractor that I trust and would recommend to anyone and especially someone that is really picky about details.  Larry also involved his business partner Jon Erickson in the second phase of our project.  Jon is also great to work with, he too is also very attention to detail oriented.   Both Larry and Jon work well together and are a great complement to each others set of skills and expertise. 
    In my profession, I?ve had the opportunity to work with MANY general contractors and sub contractors.  Unfortunately at work, I don?t have the ability to choose who they are.   if i was able to make this decision, Larry would be the General Contractor that I would work with at work too.  So while my project at home was only about $75,000, I would've gladly partnered with him on my last project at work which had a value of $1,000,000!

    Robert Madara Corp
    I hired Mr. Madara to do a major remodel on my lakefront home adding approximately 1000 square feet to my existing house.  My expectations were all surpassed. He listened and acted on all issues that my wife and I brought up always putting our concerns  first! He was always available and was always pleasant to work with. In the beginning I would ask questions I already knew the answers to to see what response I would get and I was always given honest replies.
    His work was high quality and his rates were outstanding. All in all the experience of working  with Mr. Madera and home designer Bert Fisher whom Mr. Madara often works with was outstanding!!!!

    !Highly recommended!!!!!

    Great Bear Builders Inc
    I built long-distance, which is often a prescription for chaos. Steve was communicative and responsive. We were lucky to find a builder who handles each job as a person-person relationship.
