    M Johnson Contracting
    We had a general remodeling job which would have likely cost 40 to 50K. Mr. Johnson came out and looked at the job, took notes and seemed very friendly. Said he would get back to us in about a week with an estimate. Never heard from him again. We were very disappointed that he never follwed through.

    Kodiak Construction
    Overall we may have to sue Kodiak in order to have the entire rear roof removed and rebuilt properly. We got no satisfaction from Kodiak and no sense that they back their work up. Their integrity seems to be totally lacking and rather than admit that by using inferior materials and changing the slope they caused extensive damage to our home and considerable distress to me and my wife. I am a disabled retiree with crushed bones in my back so I cannot do construction anymore. I need a roof that does not leak and the idea of paying Kodiak an additional $500 to fix what they did wrong is just wrong to me. I have spoken with other contractors and insurance adjusters and to a person they agree with everything I have said about the quality of the work. The first thing the adjuster said when she climbed onto the roof was alarm at the shallow slope. The poorly attached shingles were pointed out and the lack of adequate ventilation causing ice dams was noted. She immediately spotted the protruding nails as a real problem area.
    Kodiak will not stand by their work, they cut corners and nickle and dime to maximize profit while maintaining poor overall quality. They dismissed not only my concerns but any intimation that they have done poor work, even when they are shown nails popping out through the shingles they claim it is all my fault. Now I have to hire another contractor to remove the new roof down to the walls and replace it with the roof I originally contracted Kodiak to build. Meanwhile I am trying to tarp over the roof and patch what holes I can find. It's getting late in the season to find another roofer/contractor and winter will bring ice dams an more water damage.

    Thomas J Farone & Sons
    My wife and I contracted with Thomas J Farone & Sons to build a new home.  During the process, our basement was flooded with water and mud as a hole was cut in the foundation for the sewer lines but the work was not completed immediately. Therefore, the rain caused mud and water to flood the basement.  Our stairs and drywall were replaced, but the floor was left with dirt and dust and the saw cut perimeter drain was filled with mud and debris.  

    Our roof leaked and caused damage to the dining room, garage, basement and bonus room.  The builder attributed the leak to an ice dam and therefore absolved himself from any responsibility.  The roof continued to leak throughout the winter as well as during some rain storms.  Fearful of a lawsuit, the builder sent over the roofer to "take a look".  

    The roofer candidly stated that the roof design was for a home intended to be located in the south.  As a result, we have asked the builder to meet us half way to redesign the roof as we have lived in the house approximately seven months.  To this point, the builder has refused to work with us to resolve the problem.  

    Last month we had an issue with the sump pit/gravity drain system.  Water was entering the sump pit from the gravity drain, the opposite of what should happen.  There was also a ring of water on the foundation approximately six inches above the sump pit. Our contract stipulates that we should have two separate daylights for our exterior and interior perimeter drains. The builder only installed one daylight, connecting both the interior and exterior drains to one system.  

    Some additional lowlights:

    The stonework on the front of our home has two different cement colors (not intended)

    Kitchen drain for the faucet was not sealed properly and leaked into the cabinet below causing wood to warp

    Wrong tile was applied around the bathtub and fireplace

    Sliding glass door was not installed properly

    Doorbell was not wired correctly, when we moved in we noticed a buzzing sound, fuse had to be pulled as the fixture was overheating

    There is NO customer service and there is NO concern for quality.  Everything that goes wrong is the homeowners fault as the builder accepts no responsibility.  Contractors utilized by the builder cut corners. 

    Thomas J Farone Jr has no integrity, takes no pride in his projects, and is one of the most disingenuous people you will ever meet.  Avoid this builder and any home associated with this builder.

    They came in over $100,000 over the original estimate. I was not able to get my original $10,000 back.
