Home Builder reviews in Columbia

    Brent and Scott and the crew were on time and ready to go. They started at 7:30 and finished around 4. The job site was very well organized and the new culvert installation looked great. Since then we have had a couple sizable rains and the culvert worked perfectly. My wife and I are very pleased and give C L Richardson our highest recommendation.

    Great! Dan was very knowledgeable and thorough. His report was very detailed and he breaks things down so it is easier to understand what the problems are, or what they could become later on. He was extremely friendly and answered any and all questions that I had. I definitely would recommend him to anyone that I know that is needing a home inspection.

    Once my wife and I decided to build rather than buy we scoured the Internet looking for a contractor that we felt would be a good fit for our needs. Angie?s List was the first place we turned. After compiling a list of potential firms we started meeting with contractors on our lot just outside of town. Jake with Aarow Building quickly moved to the top of the list by talking with us about our concerns for energy efficiency and indoor air quality. The planning process was simplified when Jake helped us pick an architect that specialized in energy efficient homes. We made weekly stops by the project during the 8-month build meeting with Jake or the foreman the majority of visits. We always seemed welcome and they were always friendly and seemed happy to see us. There were what we feel the usual speed bumps in the process, delays in special order items (including our European windows), cost overages (small and probably reasonable) and weather but the guys just seemed to keep pushing and moving toward the end goal. Once we moved into our home the small issues that still existed were handled quickly and to our satisfaction. We would build another home with Jake and his crew. Thanks guys!

    We are very pleased with our house. When it was inspected, the inspector pointed out a lot of things that Steve Herigon Construction did really well. He was easy to contact if we had any questions. I would definitely recommend this construction company.

    We had long sought out Brian Gilpin due to many of the homes with floor plans we liked were built by his company, Brian came to our home to discuss our plans to build a home based on some drawings we had. One of the drawings was based on a home that we had seen recently that was a lot like the original floor plan we had tweaked from online. He was very insightful, cordial and honest. He also emailed us some links to homes that he had built recently that we might be interested in. He let us know that in all honesty he couldn't build the house that was for sale for the price it was being offered at. Overall it was a good meeting and I would recommend Brian to anyone.If we do not buy the other home we will talk with Brian again. We love the "open" floorplans that he does...great utilization of space. Not a lot of "dead, unuseful" areas.

    fine. He was very competent and he's a nice person. At first I wasn't sure that he was the most professional guy but when he came out, he was super helpful and super nice. He's always checking with me to make sure that everything is exactly the way went wanted it. He's following up on everything. The price was affordable. He comes off a little gruff at first so some people might be a little taken back by him for that.

    This review is for Corey Sample (dba C & C Maintenance
    and Repair or possibly C & C Construction), 6604 E. St. Charles Road,
    Columbia, MO 65202-3010, 573-881-8999 (cell), 573-474-5438 (home), married to
    Connie Sample. He was recommended by a Steve from ResinWorks (who was at my
    home repairing a foundation crack and who said he had worked with him in the
    past) when I asked him if he knew of someone that was good at drywall repair
    and possibly to build a small deck and a set of stairs. I emailed Corey explaining
    what I needed done and that I was in a huge hurry trying to get work done so as
    to get the house sold this fall. He called back saying he would be interested
    and would work for the rate of $25 per hour with $20 per hour for a helper. He
    did not at this time tell me what a huge weeny he is about working outdoors in
    colder weather.  He explained that the
    nature of the work would mean he would have to be back and forth for short
    stints as drywall is all about mudding, drying and then sanding which I knew
    already so I said fine. He came on Sunday Nov. 10th and worked 5 hours getting
    a good part of the work done. I was impressed with the speed at which he worked
    but very distressed at the lack of care he took with working over brand new
    wood floors. He had come to my house to do drywall work but had not even
    brought a tarp. I paid him $125 that day for his five hours of work. I was made
    so nervous about his carelessness about my floor that I got up at three o'clock
    the next morning and taped down paper and plastic covering the entire wood
    floor as thoroughly as possible knowing he was to return that day at 8 AM and
    continue. He did not show up at 8 even call. I finally called him at 10 and he
    said he would be about an hour. I asked him to reschedule as I had things to do.
    He did not return till Wednesday Nov. 13th when he brought a helper named Jerry
    with him. Jerry was set to work installing drywall in a stair landing area and
    didn't work very fast or seem very adept at cutting the sheets to size. I
    wondered if Corey had taken him on out of pity like he was a mentally
    handicapped person. He was that obviously not professional. He talked a lot too
    wasting time and my money. That day Corey worked 2 hours and Jerry worked 1 1/2
    hours then left. On this day Jerry did a substantial amount of stepping into
    and tracking of mud on my carpet although I had provided a sheet of heavy
    plastic to be used as a drop cloth. On the 14th Jerry worked 3/4 hour and Corey
    talked with me about deck plans. I showed him what I had drawn up as a guide to
    help him visualize what I wanted. He seemed to be right on track with it and
    asked for $700 up front to start. I wrote him a check that day. The next time I
    saw him was Saturday the 16th when he stopped by to drop off 12 4x4's and 2
    bags of concrete. Jerry came Monday the 18th for 1 3/4 hour of drywall
    sanding but said he had to pick up his kid at school and that his sanding
    pad wore out so he left without finishing. I didn't see either of them till
    Friday the 22nd when Corey worked 3 1/2 hours and Jerry 2 1/4 hours setting
    posts. The posts were laid out without regard for being straight to the house
    or each other. The spacing is inaccurate. None of the holes are as much as 2
    feet deep. Most are 18" or 19" which I can tell because they are 8'
    long and I can measure the length sticking out of the ground. It was that day I
    decided I needed to be out there at all times they were there in order to
    correct them as they went along. I did not realize the posts needed to be
    deeper by code as the structure was self supporting but was told today that
    they need to be more like 32" in the ground and that he should have pulled
    a permit and the city needed to come measure the hole depths. The concrete he
    put in the holes was put in as he went instead of squaring the posts to each
    other and bracing them first. The concrete was poured in dry and then some
    water put in the hole. I don't think he used more than half a bag of dry mix concrete
    per hole. He came back Sunday Nov. 24th and worked 2 1/2 hours building the
    intermediate platform (the project was to have been two sets of stairs with
    this platform) cutting and laying in the decking boards (mostly cup side up
    which is not right I hear). Monday the 25th Corey came and worked a whopping 3
    3/4 hours on the first of the two sets of stairs. He was laying out and cutting
    the stair stringers. The first 2 x 12 board he cut all wrong and threw that one
    back into his truck. Then we spent a lot of time discussing how to
    lay out the stringers. He was not taking into account the thickness of the
    tread material and the last rise would have been less than it should have been
    and the first rise would have been higher than it should have been. His corners
    were also not parallel with the edge of the board. He kept telling me about his
    years of experience and I kept wondering how he could be making all these
    errors if that were true. Anyway that was the last day he worked. He was to
    have been here the next day and when he failed to show up or even call I
    emailed him asking him for the return of my money and that he was fired. I
    haven?t heard from him since. I just had two other companies look at the job
    today to see what it would take to finish it and they both wanted to take out
    what he had done (to begin with there was the issue of the posts not being
    I explained to this man at the beginning that I had had a long
    period of unemployment and a very hard time these last few years and that I was
    on a tight schedule to get work completed and my house on the market with a
    loan from a relative. He came on with endless stories and comments about how
    religious he is and how important it is to him to lead a moral life and how his
    best friend is his church pastor. Despite both of these things he had no
    problem with ripping me off in both time and money both of which are in short
    supply for me.

    From the beginning it was a very good experience to work with Brent. His people were very neat and cleaned up after themselves every day. The work was done in a timely manner and looked very good. I would definitely use Wesbury Construction again and recommend them to anyone. Thank you Angie's List for such a good recommendation.

    We could not be more happy with our home, from start to finish and everything in between, Brent was outstanding! He was one time, On Budget, and I can not say enough good things about him. The process was smooth, seamless, he kept us in the loop every step of the way from picking our floor plan, to interior and exterior fixtures, his knowledge and experience, WOWED us! IF you are thinking about building a custom home or remodeling the one you have, BRENT WESBURY should be your first call!!

    They did shoddy work. There is a hole in the porcelain on the tub. This was fixed. The shower door was also wobbly and they did not fix it as I had asked in numerous emails. I was trying to get in the shower and the door came off the track and hit me in the eye. I ended up with stitches. The stair railing was also really wobbly. They came to fix the problem, but their fix was to add just an unfinished piece of wood for support, rather than sanding it and staining it. The railing still does not look great. He also built three small, misfit for the neighborhood properties across the street. He is renting them to college students and not following the HOA rules.
