Blake Building

Founded 1993 • Angie's List since March 2011

C Rated | 1 Review


Blake Building founder Peter Bennett always knew he wanted to turn his passion for home renovation and architecture into more than just a hobby. In 1993, he took his experience as a contractor and architect and co-founded Samter Homes in Tampa, Florida. For nearly 20 years, Samter has successfully built hundreds of townhomes and multi-family units throughout Tampa Bay, while also building a solid reputation of quality and integrity. In 2009, Bennett saw an increase in residential renovations and new home building and created Blake Building, a new division of Samter geared to the changing home marketplace. With a goal to be Tampa’s premier home renovation contractor, Blake Building focuses on home renovation, restoration and new home construction. Named after Bennett’s son, the new division was a natural progression for Bennett. Blake Building is a state licensed certified general contractor, and uses innovative construction techniques, green building practices, supreme quality craftsmanship and top-notch customer service to ensure all projects are delivered exactly to a homeowner’s specifications....

A few reviews for this pro…





Our home build took almost 2 years to complete. After the contract was signed, I was notified that the entire home build was subcontracted to a third party who I had never spoken with. | |All issues (and there are plenty of them) were then differed out to the subcontractor. Many of the "allowances" for the home (appliances, tile, carpet, etc...) wouldn't even cover a very basic home, let alone an upscale custom home. We were absolutely nickel and dimed to death. Verbal agreements mean little to nothing with this builder - ensure you get everything in writing. To top it all off, Blake refused to pay our loan extension fees after they missed the closing date. | |I thought I was getting a great deal at the beginning, but after all this time and money, I wish I would've just gone with a more reputable builder. While we're happy with our house, the incredible stress of construction delays and change orders for more money left us very disappointed.
