Chapel Hill General Contractors Reviews

"1. On August 2nd 2013,
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
was hired as a general contractor to refinish our garage.
2. At this time
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
was required to apply for a permit with the City of Chapel Hill to start and complete the garage
construction. This was our first instance of being misled by Mr.
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He told us that the permit took over 6 weeks to get approved. However, we later discovered that not only did he apply late for the permit, but the permit took only 6 days.
3. When we did receive the permit, we paid
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
$2000 to get started on the work for our garage.
4.
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
then informed us that the electrician who was to work with him was unavailable for more than a month. Again, on discussing this with the electrician, we learned that this was untrue. In addition, he was supposed to pay the electrician with the advance, but again, has not done so.
5. Almost two months after receiving the advance payment, he came to the garage for a total of 1 day to start breaking the walls to install a set of two windows. He worked for 1.5 days, broke some of the walls and then disappeared. We tried contacting him for a couple of weeks and he texted us that he had a family emergency. He promised to come by and complete the work, but did not show up at all. We made more than 20 phone calls, sent emails, text messages and even letters via the US
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
services but did not receive a response.
6. When we finally did, he admitted that he had been working on other projects. We asked him to return our money and he agreed that this was his fault. However, in over three weeks, he has not contacted us or made an attempt to pay us back. At this point, he is still sitting on our $2000.
6. To make matters worse, we also discovered that the little bit of work that he had completed was incorrectly done. He broke the walls of our garage without accurately measuring the window size, an outcome that has now cost us more money and required us to order a custim sized window.
Please do not hire this man. We will be filing a police report given his behavior.

"The work was done quickly with minimal disruption and mess. The new tile work is excellent.

and
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
were pleasant to work with and did an excellent job. Company owner Bill
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
was also very easy to work with and very helpful."
A
"Response was great from start to finish, he was great to work with. The work he did was great, we would definitely use him again. The only issue would be that he was a little late for the appointment. He was great about keeping in contact with us about this though, so it wasn't a major issue. I would definitely recommend him to my friends."

"It went well.
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
does everything himself, so it takes a little longer but there is no passing of the buck. All the plumbing and electrical and everything else was well taken care of. He is very competent at what he does and his ideas added a great deal to the project. This was an old kitchen in a very old house, so you know you are going to run into suprises once you start tearing everything up. We did, but there was nothing
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
couldn't handle. He told me the job would take two to three weeks and it took two and a half even with several additional things we had to do along the way. He is very clever about finding ways to make everything work in the space allotted. I could have had the job done in a much shorter amount of time by a contractor who used four guys, but I doubt very much I would have been able to get the quality of work I got. Was a good price too. . I have some pictures I will try to add later.

"The estimate was done within a day-or-two after I called (
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
was the lower of two bids), and the work crew was well-organized and thorough. No plants around the house were damaged, and all materials were carefully taken away. A magnet was used to locate old roofing nails, and the entire driveway area was blown clean at the very end of roofing work. It was great to have all the roofing work done in a single day. I'd be happy to have
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
do additional roofing work for me, should I need it.

, who came to us highly recommended by a neighbor whose kitchen had been remodeled by him, was very easy to work with and kept in touch well by phone. He is exceptionally conscientious and meticulous, insisting that everything be done well and correctly. He even gave me a copy of an article he had found regarding the proper installation of wood siding, and also gave me some special caulking to treat nails in my roofing that he discovered were inadequately sealed.

is actually a master builder and designer--he can do about anything required for home maintenance and improvement. I was very satisfied with his work in this case.

"The job went very well overall.
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
was punctual, hard working, and did excellent work. He is skilled in framing and many other home construction trades. Whenever he had to be off the job to get more materials, he always told me about it and when to expect him back. This job started as a
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
job of replacing rotted wood around door and windows and one board under the eave. When
Chapel Hill General Contractors Provider Name Locked
removed the board under the eave, he found more rot into adjoining wood and into the soffit/boxing, cornices, fascia, and sub-fascia,. He also found termites! He left the area open until a pest control company could come out to take a look and then proceeded to make the repairs. HE DID AN EXCELLENT JOB! I WOULD BE HAPPY TO EMPLOY HIM FOR ANY HOME REPAIR JOB THAT HE THINKS HE CAN DO.
"
A
"He arrived on time, as planned, and brought all needed tools and materials with him. He asked me questions about how I wanted the final product to look, and we discussed a few options. Then he set to work and didn't stop until he was finished. He cleaned up his mess when he was finished. I immediately began enjoying my new worktable and shelf."
A
"High quality work at a good price. Next time I would have them install the window instead of just the framing and trim. Very courteous."
A
"He can do about any kind of remodeling work, and is very good at it. I would recommend him to anyone for a small to medium sized job. His prices are very competitive, I think."
