    Home Inspections David E Torres
    Dave worked for us in Lansing MI about a month rehabbing a house. He seemed skilled. He said he was also a home inspector. He offered to make us custom cabinets, we paid half about a month ago. $600.00 He has not given us cabinets or returned the money. As of today, JUNE 4 He doesn���t answer the phone any more when I call or text. He had place here in Lansing he was living on Maryland, he doesnt answer the door, I think he is gone now. On google I found the Grand Rapids address and a report of where he stole from someone in a similar way.

    Taylor and his crew were a pleasure to work with! They came out right away, understood what we needed & got started on our projects immediately. They kept us informed as to what was going on and responded quickly to any concerns we had. They performed outstanding work in all the areas of concern. We were very pleased with all three doors they worked on. We could immediately feel the difference after the front door was replaced. The house was warmer and sealed very well from the cold wind blowing in. The work in the bathroom was tough, but they got the tub and floor replaced. The quality of their work was much better than expected. We would highly recommend Teachout Builders for your remodeling needs.

    Brad was quick to respond to my request for an estimate of the work and coordinated the completion of the job around our schedules. Both Brad and Lauri took great care in protecting the surrounding carpet and walk ways to ensure any dust or dirt was contained on the drop cloths. The new replacement wood trim and jamb were stained and varnished perfectly to match our current wood throughout the rest of the house. We are very happy with the quality of his work and look forward to calling him again on future projects.

    It couldn't have gone better. Every task that was complete showed meticulous workmanship and constant attention to detail. My Dad was beyond satisfied, as was I. I can't recommend Express Paint and Decoration highly enough.

    We sent a letter to Eric Collar, on Jan. 19, 2016 detailing the events of the last few months of the building process. ��Eric had hired 1 worker to do the plumbing, furnace and heat ducting. ��Eric forwarded our letter to the worker's company. ��Issues in this letter included��the following:
    �� �� ��This worker and his helpers always used the front door of our house to get to their work area in the basement. ��They made so many trips with dirty shoes that the stairway was gouged to the point that it could no longer be stained. ��This worker demonstrated he had no respect for our property. ��Eric ignored it.
    �� �� ��We ordered 3 egress windows. ��2 met code and 1 did not. ��We had been looking at a potential 4 bedroom house, but now it's 3. ��Eric said the window that had been cut to meet code had to have wood trim. We called the basement company recently and they said concrete trim could have been used.
    �� �� ��Mr. Collar seemed confused on codes when putting in the stairway. ��Originally, we had planned for 1 door at bottom of stairway. ��Once the stairs were in, there��wasn't enough clearance between the bottom stair and outside wall. Eric realized his mistake and said he had to frame it in. ��We said, "OK" because we really had no other choice at that point.
    �� �� ��The problem��worker gave us a 3" sewer pipe without giving us an option of a 4" pipe. ��He put the main sewer pipe in the wrong place, causing a 6"+ sized hole in basement wall.
    �� �� ��Eric said we would get a Tappan furnace (highly rated), but later the worker installed a Rheem furnace instead. ��We found out later it hadn't been registered and worker hadn't done it himself and didn't mention anything to us to do it, so we lost 5 years of our warranty on the furnace. ��Once he had furnace running, he had to order a part that was missing and let furnace run hard as a space heater for 2 weeks waiting for the part so he could get the heat ducting in, which may have taken years off lifetime of furnace. ��Eric did nothing about this.
    �� �� ��Worker put the register in the wrong place in kitchen after being told several times it needed to be moved. Eric did nothing about this. ��
    �� �� ��The worker's helper (a novice) installed the bathroom vanity, but damaged it in the process. ��The worker never checked his helper's work. ��Eric resurfaced the floor in it to cover up the water damage which we approved, but we still ended up paying for a new vanity.
    �� �� ��The worker's helper installed plumbing in the kitchen which looks like a big pile of spaghetti under the sink and the worker never checked his work and Eric Collar didn't do anything about it. ��The helper didn't use clamps to tighten front of sink which damaged the counter. ��A rep. of the worker's company came later to check the work and said it was done wrong and couldn't be dug out and fixed.
    �� �� ��We said we needed 3/4" spigots on outside of house. ��The worker put in 1/2" spigots, noticed that the pressure was weak, but didn't change the size. ��This is not adequate for our ongoing blueberry "U-Pick" summer business.
    �� �� ��We wanted a water heater with 40000��BTU. ��The worker assured us our water heater would have (his words) "every bit that BTU". ��He put in a 36000 BTU. ��At this point, we let it go, because it was hard enough to get along Eric's worker��and we didn't want to make waves.
    �� �� ��As issues mounted during this project, we didn't even want to deal with the worker. ��We felt increasingly intimidated and didn't trust him. ��Eric Collar increasingly failed to support us in these conflicts. Mr. Collar wouldn't stand behind us. ��He always gave excuses for his workers and wanted us to fight our own battles. ��We don't know if the real problem worker intimidated Eric or Eric just didn't care. Eric did tell us that the worker no longer worked at that company, was let go. ��
    �� �� ��Lastly, we had over $16,000 of parts we already had before the project began��which��included, the well, septic system, kitchen cabinets and counter, 1 Andersen wall door, a bathroom vanity, water heater, light fixtures and mirrors. ��(The well and septic already here was��approved to use on the new house by the county.) ��We didn't know where that money went. ��We saved all paper work. ��We are still waiting for the counter to be replaced with the same counter we had, painting, bathroom door leveled out, and porch boards need to be replaced from last summer. I would advise to use financing through a bank on this type of project and not doing it out of pocket. That was our mistake. A bank would have stopped the project when it started going wrong. Even if you have cash, use a bank anyway.

    Miteff Plumbing

    They started by removing everything from the bathroom except for the toilet. I am an 81 year old woman with only one bathroom so this was a problem. Everyone who worked on the bathroom was very kind, professional and did their best to make things easy and comfortable for me, including one young man that made extra trips to make sure I had a working toilet every night. I've never worked with a more hard working, polite and caring group of young men. I had included replacing the sink drains behind the wall because I have had a slow draining or completely plugged sink drain many times. When they started doing this, they found a pipe that was starting to break so they had to replace that and the 4 inch waste and vent pipe from above the toilet to the basement floor. Shawn added a very moderate price to the original proposal. The bathroom is beautiful. They did an excellent job on the tiling, both on the floor and in the shower. I have absolutely no complaints on anything that was done to complete this project. I would highly recommend Miteff Plumbing for any project small or large. They deserve an A+ rating.

    Miteff Plumbing
    I got quotes from a couple companies at first. Miteff plumbing came in on the high side (which is why I gave a B for price), but they were the only ones who could do everything, without me having to find a separate carpenter to make space in the cabinet. They were also the most professional, and clearly knew what they were doing. They made a plan and got back right away with an estimate. Once I was ready to go, they were available to do it right way.
    I think the job could have taken longer, but they were in and out within just a few hours. The dishwasher looks like it was meant to be there. They also explained everything they did after they did it.
    I would definitely consider them for another job, or any plumbing work in the future.

    The plumber they hired did not check his helper's work, resulting in the bathroom vanity being damaged and kitchen sink not installed right which damaged the counter top.  (We used the kitchen from our previous house because it was fairly new and in excellent shape.)  The counter top was fixed, but the damage is noticeable and we're already thinking of having a new counter top.  Also, we're not happy with the performance of the kitchen sink.  They should have had a kitchen specialist put the kitchen in, not handymen.  Also, they installed the blinds, but didn't shorten them.  The builder should have communicated choices on materials before they installed them.  Know who your builder uses to complete the work, because that's ultimately a reflection on the quality of the builder's project.  We'd rehire our builder for certain jobs.

    (P.S.: We have a few months left on the warranty.)

    Rem Construction
    Rex was able to give me a realistic quote for my garage door and explain where to best spend the available money, and he did the work for his estimated amount. He recommended the slightly more expensive belt drive rather than chain drive opener, and it was definitely the right choice as it's whisper quiet. About a month after the installation, the door had a shimmy upon opening and closing, and then became stuck open.  Rex immediately came out (same day) and completely reinstalled the door.  He stood behind his word and didn't stop until I was happy, and of course there was no additional charge.  After that, I hired him to install a ridge vent on my roof and to contract gutters.  The jobs were done perfectly and for a reasonable cost.  There may be cheaper out there, but I gave him an "A" on cost because it's worth any marginal amount to have a licensed, insured, trustworthy professional that ensures the job is done correctly. When I need work done on my house, he is my first call.
