General Contracting reviews in Lincoln

    There were lots of delays before he showed up. He had another man install the I-beams, under his direction, though he wasn't there most of the time. So far so good, though I have doubts now about the quality of the work based on the other and quot;repairsand quot; he made here. We had a chimney sweep and mason finally come in and get the fireplace in working order, after waiting a couple of months for a special damper that turned out not to be needed as it wouldn't have solved the problem. The repairs to the porch and foundation turned out to be patches that have already failed. Never did check the roof for the spots that needed attention.

    It has gone fairly well so far. Rick has been out to the house (outside of town) 3 times in gathering details for the renovation. I was somewhat disappointed that he felt I should get an architect involved due to the age of the house (113 years old) and the time he would have needed to do drawings for the work to be done in order to secure the required permits. That turned out to be a good decision, as there were isses in the roof and floor joist existing construction that were successfully addressed at Building and Safety by the architect.
    The second disappointment has been in scheduling the work. I understand that it is a busy time, and that is good for his business. But having first contacted Rick in June and being told at that time they were scheduling in August, I had hoped for a start in October after getting the drawings from my architect. It turns out they are looking at the first or second week of November, and that could be a problem due to family issues requiring a trip to Florida in November.
    The work was started in November and the weather was cooperative. Opening up the northwest corner of the house was a little scary that time of year, but work went quickly and Jeremy Carpenter (I know ... Carpenter the carpenter) was extremely cognizant of the possible problems and took all precautions. He and his apprentice, Kevin, were very careful to try and keep things square and plumb when connecting to this 114-year old house. It took about 2 weeks to accomplish this part of the project, but for family reasons, the renovation of the second floor was postponed until spring. They successfully sealed up the
    unfinished deck above our living room and it was free of leaks during the rest of the winter during several snows and a couple heavy rains.
    So we began the next phase in April (rainy season?), I had removed all plaster, lathe and tongue and groove flooring from the second floor. As the superstructure of the old hip roof and knee walls was taken away, it became apparent the it had provided some support for the floor and that without that support, the floor would need to be stiffened up - basically rebuilt with doubled up 2x6s. That was a pretty major additional expense, but as I said, you never know what will pop up when you start fooling with these ancient houses. The floor was reinforced and they started opening up the roof to recieve a new ridge beam and 2x6s replacing the 2x4s of the hip roof. Gaping holes in the roof are a little scary in the month of showers, but Jeremy and Kevin were careful to make sure every thing was buttoned up with heavy plastic when they left for the day.
    This part of the project took about a month and when Willet was done, I had an entire new roof applied by White Castle Roofing.
    As with any old house, this is a Work In Progress, but I fully intend to have Willet help me with it whenever I deem it necessary.

    Failed to respond to first request to bid on project.  Never called back
    as promised.  Called second time, he came out, said he would get back
    to me with estimate. Never did nor did he respond to follow call  from
    me.

    I needed my basement stairs rebuilt due to a basement remodel. Stephen listened to my requirements, double-checked some issues with the building dept, and came to work. He demo'd the old stairs, built the new stairs to spec, and cleaned up all of the mess. He was prompt, and the build quality was excellent. I plan on adding a deck to my house in the future, and I'll definitely consider Dodd Construction for that job.

    can count...i called don hamil the owner on more than 1 occassion.....finally i left a message and said we don't want the doors. i contacted my visa company. (in the meantime the moulding, door casing and baseboards were sent to our house) it took numerous phone calls to get that and 3 times for them to get the proper items and proper quantities delivered...they (mike) was to call before delivery (we never did get any calls).
    i finally on Oct 15 got a threatening phone call from mike that said i HAD TO take the doors...they were finally in-however even at that time elapse they never did "hang them".  Two days later on Oct 17th i got a very very THREATING phone call from Don Hamil-he was swearing at me and making threats about our house-how he was going to file a lein and forclose on our house.  After contacting an attorney-we were advised to call the Police-which we did and we filed a report. case #B2-100299.

    Excellent experience. Titus is reliable, straight forward, and very talented. He came to my house and gave me a quote the first day I phoned him. He gave me a choice of having him start right away or waiting until he completed his next project. He came each day, weather permitting. The garage looks great and was reasonably priced. I will definitely use him again.

    He had to order special wood slats to match to original wood of the porch which was 90 years old. He designed steps to match the architecture of the house and gave them a larger look. The job was quick, only one day and he was able to match the new railing to the old. Great job!

    I planned what I wanted, called Terry for input and discussed my options. Upon his advice, we made several changes to the project. He refigured the pricing and changes were made to the contract. Work progressed as planned. He was very neat and took great care to see that nothing was disturbed, putting things into place at the end of each day. The job was finished as promised and on time. We are very pleased.

    Mr. Steve Freese came to my home and gave me a reasonable bid for the service. He told me he would be able to do the work in a few days and promptly called a few days later to tell me he would be able to complete the job that afternoon. He arrived on time and finished the work as he had promised. I am satisfied with the workmanship.
