Home Builder reviews in Bellevue

    First and foremost Advantage was very knowledgeable about their work and stayed very close to their original estimate.  They were also very good about accepting our random addition to the side of the house that would hide the trash cans.   We had a number of other companies come out and perform estimates on the property.   Some over estimate, others underbid but after 5 different bids we settled on Advantage because they were the most compatibly priced with the best reviews.
    Since we also had an easement that ran next to our house (corner lot) I made sure to purchase a survey of the area.  While this ran about $250 dollars it basically gave us a guarantee that I wasn't going to be building on my neighbors land and the city couldn't come in and claim imminent domain promptly forcing us to rebuild our fence.  
    Once the bids were completed work began a couple weeks later.  The posts went in and shortly thereafter our fence went up.  Advantage was very forth coming with information and helped us lay out the best possible plot for the fence.  
    The only problem we encountered was cost.  Advantage was slightly higher than the average bid for the job so we had to weigh quality of work vs up front costs.   In the end, we may have paid slightly more but I'm very satisfied with the look and quality of the work.

    They did all of my windows, a total of eighteen. They traded out my sliding glass doors for French doors. They did an external driveway. They demolished, and rebuilt my deck. They put in a new shed with a concrete pad. They did siding, and gutters. They were respectful. They traveled, and I had to pay gas, and travel fees. It was still cheaper than any of the companies in Omaha. It was a quarter cheaper even with the gas, and travel fees. Sometimes you have a hard time getting a hold of the owner. I’ am going to use them again in the future. It is already planned.

    Initially I was impressed with the attitude and punctuality of Jeff Bosaw and his son.  They showed up on time and worked efficiently.  They guaranteed that my painted concrete floor would not endure any damage and their mess would be completely cleaned up when the job was done. After the job was supposedly complete we parted ways.  I then realized that the drywall mud that was all over the floors would not come up without severe damage to the flooring.  The once painted concrete floor (with concrete floor paint) was ruined and the mud was nearly impossible to get up.  Not only had they ruined the floor but the outlets they had installed did not work.  The circuit they had connected them to was overloaded.  I called them to have them come back and fix the problem.  After phone messages and trying to contact them for months I recieved a phone call from them about 6 months after the initial job was complete and I tried to get them to fix the electrical problem.  I was told that he had some personal issues and health issues and that was why there was a delay.  They came to my home to fix the electrical problem, which included cutting a hole in the newly completed drywall to rewire the outlets to a different circuit.  This was after the basement had already been carpeted and painted.  The job was once again completed, only to have the electrical outlets not work a week after.  At this time I tried contacting them again to no avail.  This was back in late 2010, I have yet to hear from them today.  I hired an electrician to come and repair the damage they had done to the electrical outlets. 

    The drywall work was questionable at best, you can see where the mud was not sanded down, as well as mulitple places that drywall screws were not covered.  Inititially they told me the drywall would be finished all the way to the floor in case I did not want to carpet/tile.  Not only did I have to carpet in order to cover the gap at the bottom of the wall but I also had to install baseboard to cover unfinished screws in the drywall.

    The basement finish started in March of 2008 and was completed July 2009. In our opinion this project took way too long to complete. Approximately 15 months. There were many delays where no work was done in 1-4 week stretches. In these periods we would call and send e-mails and they were non-responsive. We had several of the subcontractors (plumbing. painting, tiling, cabinetry and the electricians contact us as our contractor would not respond to their questions regarding pay. In one case, we received several letters from one of the subcontractors (painter) attorneys regarding payment. It is our opinion that the contractor should have dealt with the subcontractors so we did not have to do so. In order to ensure payment to the subcontractor we including both the general and sub contractor names on many of our check payments so we could diffuse the situation that had occurred. For my wife and I this was a very unpleasant experience.The ratings we gave above is based on the events that we observed as the basement was completed and are our opinion of the overll service. We are please with the final product but it was very emotionally draining for my Wife and I. Although we are happy with the product we would not recommned this contractor due to the time it took to complete the project and how they managed the subcontractors.

    We purchased a partially built spec home from Baranko in January of 2004. At the time we were expecting a child, and needed a larger home before he arrived. Our hope was to be settled in by May. We were told 3 months to finish. We could do minor customization, and still be finished on time. Our promised date was March 15. Once we signed the paperwork, all work stopped. We tried to get them going again, but they took 60 days off. We were unable to close until the July 4 weekend. By this time my wife was 8 months pregnant. Once we moved in we had several punch list items “covered” by the Pro Home 1 year warranty. In actuality the builder has final say as to whether or not an issue falls under the warranty. We had water coming in on two sides of the house. Mike Baranko told us this was Mother Nature, and not the fault of the builder. This was noticed 30 days after we moved in, and supposedly part of the one year warranty. I ended up fixing myself, and out of pocket. Much of the finish work was not done well. Dry wall seams were not sanded prior to paining. The bathroom pluming was not insulated, and froze. This happened after 5 months in the house. It should have been covered by the warranty, but ended up being another out of pocket expense. Pipes & conduit were not properly routed along soffit space, instead strewn all over the ceiling of the basement. The 9 foot ceiling is actually 8 once you cover all the poor work. His painter, cabinet & finish woodworking subs were great. His plumber, drywall, and hard finish subs were lousy. When planning the heating & cooling I was worried the Air Conditioning unit was too small. I asked for a larger unit, at my expense (our home has many west facing windows). Mike would not upgrade the AC unit. I asked for a guarantee that the unit would keep the home at 75 degrees on a 90 degree day. He would not do this, nor would he upgrade the AC unit. On a 90 degree day, with the blinds closed, our home cannot maintain 75 degrees. By 4 PM it is usually 80. I replaced the AC unit myself, again out of pocket. Much of their work has been redone since we moved in. When I pointed out these issues to Mike during the build, I was told I was too picky. In my opinion complaints about leaking windows, freezing pipes, poor finish, and a sub-par AC unit do not seem too picky on a $280,000 home. Prior to signing the paperwork, Mike was readily available. Once we handed over the escrow check, Mike never made himself available, instead using his realtor as a buffer. We chose the builder because we were told he worked on 20 homes per year, later finding out he did somewhere between 50 & 100 the year ours was built (when I asked him how many homes he was working on, he said “oh, a lot”, when pressed further he would not tell me). He could not manage the work, and our job suffered. This was our first home build, and an expensive lesson. Email ashaddy@gmail.com for more detail.

    It has been several years. They were nice enough and did a good job keeping the workplace clean, however the quality of their products are less than desired. Our concrete driveway has had significant chipping and flaking. I am not sure if it was the quality of the product or workmanship, but in either case the concrete began chipping/flaking and is an eyesore. When we looked at other homes they built, similar wear had occurred. The wood in the original windows are rotting and I will need to replace a number of them at approximately 10% of the original value of the home. I tried to contact them a few times regarding the concrete both by phone and in writing with no return communication.
