    Ricebuilt Construction Co
    He was very professional an honest. I did not have any work with him because i had decided not to do any thing that extensive, it was something miner. He could immediately give me a follow up that was fully based on knowledge, he immediately went to check out on the electrical lines which happened to be the most expensive , you know there were issues with  that so he checked things that would cost me a lot of money. The things i had in mind is too much money but he was professional.

    Poor Communication and poor follow-up.  Felt mislead through the construction process and never felt properly communicated too.  Completion date pushed back three times and each time we had to reach out for communication.  Closed 2 months later than originally told and house still not fully complete.  Many issues after closing with only a few being attended too properly.  Felt builder and realtor was overwhelmed through the entire process.

    We have used Iowa Home Crafters for all of our home remodel projects and have been exceptionally pleased.  Dave met with us and listened carefully to our wish list and dreams.  He creatively designed plans for our mission/arts and crafts style that exceeded our hopes.  We also met with Eldon, Josh and Craig.  We especially appreciated their environmentally green approach to the entire process.  The wood used for this project came from century old trees - oak, white oak and ash - that had fallen during storms in our area.  The fireplace stone was limestone from nearby Stone City.  The team of professionals were a delight to work with - true artisans and perfectionists!  They work closely together with the client throughout the entire process, making adjustments as desired.  We feel as though we now have fine works of quality art in our home that were individually designed and crafted for our personalities.  The results are stunningly beautiful with a lovely story behind each project.  It was a pleasure to work with such dedicated, creative and collaborative builders.  We worked with Iowa Home Crafters in 2003 when they completely refinished our lower level and will always return to them for our home remodel needs.

    Hoffman Construction
    Before the work began, I spoke in person with both Keith Hoffman and his son and was impressed by their courtesy and professionalism. And mainly they both seemed like they knew what they were doing.
         The only minor problem was how long it took from the time I requested the work done and the actual starting and completion of the job (there were a couple delays of a couple weeks each as I recall). This was largely due to the weather; it's rare that it's warm or snowless enough in Iowa in January that concrete work can be done at all. And I'm sure that another factor was the work load they must have had. I suspect he's in demand a lot because he's good. And I wasn't really in a hurry; I've waited several years to have this work done anyway.
         The end result looks great and was worth the minor delays. It's only been about 2 and a half months, not enough time to know if there will be settling or cracking, but I feel confident from seeing the time and care that went into the prep work that it will be fine for many years.
         There was a small area that I forgot to discuss with Keith before the work began (and after we had agreed on a price). There was an area to fill in between the new patio and a sidewalk leading to the garage. I told him to do it and charge me what he thought was fair. I realized I left myself open for him to charge a large fee if he chose, but he only tacked on an extra $100, which I was happy with. And I think they filled in a small extra area near the back door that I might have forgotten about at no extra charge.
         Overall I am very pleased with the quality and cost of the work.

    I would not recommend them. They kept saying that they would come out and they didn���t. I never heard from them and they kept putting it off. Even though it was not raining, they didn���t show up until finally we had to postpone them because we were on vacation. He gave me a quote of $850 on doing the siding on the whole chimney. However, they did some parts of the siding and wanted to charge me $600 something which was not right. His final bill had some error and he was charging me extra by some calculation mistake which I caught. The overall picture looked like it was done on purpose because of everything else that he did. I didn���t trust him.

    They were extremely professional. Price was the reason why I didn't go with them. As far as quality and everything else, I would give them an A.
