    Harris construction co.
    Terrible. He did not listen to delta old that were important to us and had to redo many errors. He charged us well over double what he estimated. He cut corners wherever possible to save himself money. He did not do many things that he was prepaid to do.

    The service has been horrible. They need to be building less homes. They're too busy. They don't have enough personnel to keep up with their construction. The workers are just about average - not great workers and not poor, but average. I would tell a friend not to use them. I would not recommend them.

    I dealt with Scott, who is the son of Charlie Sanders,the owner of S and S Renovators. He was a pleasure to deal with and the crew that he sent out was very professional, courteous and knew what they were doing. Very experienced carpenters who have been with the company for many years. They were always on time and cleaned up 100% when they finished up. The price was very reasonable and they completed the project in record time. The only thing they subbed out was the painting, which I wasn't entirely pleased with....but Scott apologized for that. They have their own paint crew but due to the recent freeze, they were tied up. All in all, I don't think I could find a better renovator than S and S.

    Solis Builders of Louisiana, LLC
    Rodney coordinated all the work crews, supervised all the work - he was here almost every day - and made sure the work was completed to the highest possible standards.  Several times Rodney required work crews to pull out the work and do it over if it wasn't done right. Some of the items we installed, like European style wall-hung toilets, were unusual to the work crews and they were initially resistant.  But Rodney worked them through all the processes and got work crews to try new things - and succeed.  Those toilets work great! Throughout the house all the corners are square, all the finsihes are correct and everything works properly.  Plus it looks great!  That's Solis Builder's style and they will accept nothing less.

    They did help me in some ways, but they let me hear what I wanted to hear and it was not true. He was just a typical salesman, so I would advise people to definitely be cautious. The problem was their honesty and they actually wouldn't take no for an answer. I wanted to see it and buy it from a different person, but I had already gave them a down payment of $15,000. I ended up not wanting to go with them because of the false statements that they told me. I asked them to give me my money back and they said that they were going to, but it would take 14 to 21 business days. On the 21st business day I still haven't received a check, so I called them and they haven't even processed it yet.

    Mallett Buildings Inc
    The building was order on 5/15/12.  Fifty six days later the building was started on 7/11/12 and halted by the city of Lafayette on 7/13/12 because Mallett Buildings did not obtain a permit which the salesman Mr. Kyle Lyons told me at the time I ordered the building, 5/15/12, he would obtain a permit.  I called him when the crew arrived and informed him the crew did not have the permit.  He told me he didn't get the permit but to let the crew start and he would get the permit.  He did not get the permit and the city shut down the contruction of the building.  The Mallett building contract states in two places that they would not start or order material for the building until a permit was sent to them.  Since Mr. Lyons said he was getting the permit and the material arrived I assumed he had the permit.
    That was the first of many problems and lies.
    After weeks of hearing his lies that he was going to get the permit, I went and it took me two days the clear up the confusion at the permit office and I had to pay a fine which made the permit double what it would have been.  I finally got the permit on 7/24/12 and Mallett Buildings was notified by email from the permit office that the permit had been issued and the crew did not arrive until 7/27/12.  Mr. Lyons had 56 days to get the permit to began with and when he didn't he lied about going to get the permit for almost two weeks and if I had not gone to get the permit my building would still be unfinished.  I have the recorded conversation on my cell phone and the owner of the company Mr. Lee Mallet told me I was lying, that Mr. Lyons did not say he was going to get the permit.  These are bottom feeding people.
    During the time the construction of the building was halted it rain several times and the wood on the cheap doors molded up.
    I ordered the building with 6" over hangs all around, I got 2" over hangs and now I have to get gutter for the patio portion of the building because the rain splashes on the cement.
    I ordered the building with metal doors and door frames with no less than ANSI 2 door knobs and dead bolts.  He bought the cheapest doors and door knobs all keyed different and no dead bolts.  I have three personnel doors.  Now I have to buy the door knobs and dead bolts and I will have to hole saw the hole for the dead bolt.  The door frames are made of wood and not steal as I ordered them.
    I ordered a role up door with a chain and sprocket set up to open the door.  He bought the cheapest door with a little 1/4" rope knotted in the middle to pull it up and down.
    When the material arrived the person who unloaded it was not a qualified fork lift operator.  He dropped all of the material off the forks instead of setting down blocks of wood to set the material on top of.  He drop the trust from about six foot in the air and broke one of them in half and of course jarred all the rest of them so they were no longer true.  He dropped and dragged or pushed all of the material and broke every strap that was holding the wood together.  There were several damaged pieces of tin and wood.  The new material did not arrive until the crew came back on 7/27/12 and the damage was reported on 7/11/12, the first day the crew arrived. He damaged the role up door crate so bad the crew could not use it to transport the role up door to the back yard.  They had to dismantle the crate and carry the door by hand.
    Now for the crew.  All mexicans that could not speak english except for the foreman.  They urinated in the corner of my back yard for four days, which I didn't know was happening at the time.  I am still finding trash in my landscaping, the landscaping they didn't trample, cut down, or break off.  They broke several pots and landscaping decorations. They were not going to cement the post in the ground.  I had to go and buy bags of cement 48 bags.  There was a drain I dug up prier to there arrival and showed the foreman.  He need to put the first post on the outside of the drain.  He lay out the post incorrectly and was trying to stab the corner post on top of the drain which would have been one and a half feet to shallow the meet the 120 mile an hour rating and once the weight of the building settled the drain would have been broken.  I had to make him do it correctly.  If I had not been there the building would have been constructed incorrectly.  The roof leaked on the first rain and all the screws on the roof had to be tightened.  They installed bent tin and some of the tin does not over lap properly.   They left over 60 screws on the roof which were rusting on the tin.  I brought them a trash can to put trash in and they would not use it, they just keep throwing food containers and other construction trash where ever they were finished with it.  They did not over lap the tin where the two over hangs meet the building and covered it up with trim and I had to go and caulk all of the trim to prevent it from leaking inside the building.
    Mr. Kyle Lyons was informed about all this as it was happening and he did nothing about it, so I called the owner Mr. Lee Mallett and he was arrogant and condescending and also did nothing to correct the matter.  I spoke to a lawyer friend of mine and he told me it wouldn't be worth the time and frustration to sue them for the little money I could claim for damages and a poorly constructed building. 
    So here I am trying to warn other people about Mallett Buildings.  They will lie to you and call you a liar when you call them on it!

    Briscoe's Construction
    I absolutely loved the work Brian Briscoe and his crew did for us.  They are hardworking, polite, and neat.  The job site was always cleaned up after a day's work.  They worked with us to make sure everything was addressed to our satisfaction.  They cut no corners and I can't imagine the quality being any better.  We were continually impressed.  I would recommend Brian to anyone for construction services.

    A few weeks before closing on the home we started finding several problems with the house. A few of the issues were fixed prior to closing, but even after we moved in, we continued to have problems with the house. At closing, the upgraded wood flooring we had purchased was still not glued down properly. The project manager attempted to re-glue the floors, which only made large visible holes in the floors. The floor was also not flush with the walls in the foyer, and instead of repairing the issue, the installer used wood colored caulk to fill in the gap. We also had 3 roof leaks in the first year. Our master bathroom shower leaked into our master closet soon after moving in. Shivers sent a plumber to repair it, and he only re-caulked on several occasions. We discovered on our own that the drain was not installed properly, and we had the damage fixed ourselves. The fireplace mantle starting pulling away from the wall within the first year. Shivers did come by to fix it but only caulked behind the gap. After that repair, the mantle again pulled away from the wall. It was brought to our attention by a third party that the drywall is bowed out in the section the mantle is attached. Our only option is to pull the mantle down and start over. Minor issues include large scratches on both of our bathroom countertops that were apparently made during installation. The painting job was poor. The kitchen countertops were made of ceramic tile with a wooden trim. The trim lasted about a year before looking horrible. This material is extremely impractical for a kitchen. The carpet in the bedrooms is extremely cheap, and we were told by a carpet cleaner that it should be replaced soon. After only 5 years, we are now in the middle of a major remodel. We are replacing the poorly installed wood flooring, which is costing more to have removed (because it was glued down) as it is to have new floor installed. We are getting the entire house repainted. We have torn down the mantle and are starting from scratch with a floating wood beam to avoid the same issues we have been having. We are also replacing the extremely impractical kitchen countertops and scratched bathroom countertops.

    He didn?t seal the windows well. He hired some guys and did just half the job. The roof started leaking, but he never came back to fix it. He went way over and so my budget went way over. He was never here and he never watched his own people. I will never use his services again.
