Home Builder reviews in Fairfield

  • Although the project turned out to be more complicated and took longer than expected, this had little to do with
    the builder or his sub-contractors. Primarily the delays were due to weather, financing issues, and poor
    communications on the part of the town's code enforcement officer.
    Let me address this last issue first. Everything seemed to be alright until the pad was poured. The code
    enforcement officer was upset that she was not notified prior to the pouring of the cement so she could inspect
    the forms and re-bar. This and quot;misunderstandingand quot; occurred because the CEO never communicated to either myself or the
    contractor at what points during the project she wanted to perform inspections. However, from this point forward
    the CEO seemed to question every aspect of the project. Demonstrating considerable restraint and diplomacy, most
    of the time the contractor bowed to her demands (he was much , but drew the line at her trying to force him to
    install a water shutoff valve in a location that would likely have caused our well pump to burn out. In this
    case Greg Bragg stood his ground, backing it up with State of Maine statutes.
    With respect to the weather, June 2013 was one of the wettest on record for Maine. As far as financing, the
    magnitude and cost of the project exceeded what we had budgeted and we found out just how difficult it is to
    secure financing for rental property, especially if you are setting up a used mobile home. Consequently, we had
    to break the project into two phases.
    The demolition of the old house and initial site preparation went very smoothly as can be seen in this 8 minute
    YouTube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWaJEgV2iJE).
    Getting the mobile home onto the pad was a bit more interesting since the ground was still very muddy from all
    the rain we received in June and July. Fortunately, Greg Bragg of Bragg Builders had the foresight to keep a
    bulldozer onsite. As can be seen in this 8 minute YouTube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioZ1IFl-3CQ),
    the bulldozer was absolutely essential.
    The only other issue related to Bragg Builders portion of the project was a ruptured water line. Prior to
    constructing the gravel pad a brand new water line was installed and was even packed in sand to ensure rocks
    would not rupture the line. Unfortunately, a rupture occurred anyway. Fortunately, the contractor promptly
    installed a new water line, at no charge to us.
