    Not well. We contacted Matt in April as of August all we had to show for it were holes. We finally had to tell him we were no longer interested. Would never recommend him. We question where his positive reviews are coming from. We are very easy going but was pushed to our limits with his excuses and promises.

    It has been a very good experience working with them.  It is a family owned business.  They are very hands on and have done an amazing job.  We are VERY pleased with their work.  They have prior experience in log home building which has been very helpful.

    Gotham Builders of New York
    Gotham Builders was very helpful and patient when we decided to convert our cape style home to a colonial. From the very beginning, Greg referred us to a great architect. Once the plans were drawn up, Greg went over every detail of the renovation with us. We handed our keys over to GB and put all our trust into this company to take good care of our house. Months later, we got our keys back and walked into a completely different home. From the beautiful custom made kitchen, open style living room and dining area, to the man-cave style basement, we are very pleased with all the work. We look forward to working with Greg and Gotham Builders in the future.

    MERRY BUILDERS INC
    We finally received our certificate of occupancy this past September '12 after having to complete the job using another contractor to complete/fix the railings and stairs at both entryways and the portico. In all, it cost us another $10,000 to fix mistakes that had been made and complete the work.
     
    In addition to this, I had to fix several areas myself. Most of the sheetrock around outlets was poorly cut. I had to repair sheetrock and replace standard size wall plates with medium sized plates. The ceiling in the laundry room that was damaged from water intrusion also had to be repaired.
     
    The areas around the windows were never insulated. The screens were never delivered for the windows. The frame to an upstairs window was taken for repair by Merry Builders and never returned, meaning we have to buy another screen and frame.
    The addition's floor knocked and squeeked. We had to roll up the vinyl floor and secure subfloor. There were few and in some places no nails securing the infield of the subfloor. Only the perimeter was nailed.
    As for the siding, there is still trim that was never put up around windows and we still have siding that falls from its place on the top course. I had to seal the seam between the chimney and siding to keep a draft from blowing into the house. In some places you could see daylight around the chimney.
     
    The debris took me a long time to clean up. Numerous nails, metal lathe and metal flashing in our driveway and lawn that was never cleaned up.
     
    The PVC pipe that exits the house for the basement sump pump was broken and never fixed ($25 part + labor).
     
    In addition to the money I gave Merry Builders for this work, I also paid for the flooring ($874.83) and the screens ($77.68) for the downstairs windows and the 2 extensions to the building permit ($100.00) which I was told would be taken care of. All this was covered by the building contract.
     
    For having put so much effort in working Merry Builders prior to work start was a waste. I thought we had a good working relationship and I was willing to accept some delays without much fuss based on our mutual connection. But the initial 3 month job turned into a 15 month headache that was never completed. 
    In the fall of 2011 after stating all problems would be fixed and the job completed prior to December, you never showed again. After that, I decided it was enough and contracted another company to complete the work.

    Experience was horrible. He is very slow.  He is incapable of meeting his own deadline. Our house is still yet to be finished. They left the siding unfinished and stairs on the outside. I can not use the stairs, they are unsafe. The house on the inside is nice.  Be ready for disappointment and have an incredibly open time frame. When he does contact back, he is relatively nice.

    Chestwood Kitchens
    I first contacted this contractor after seeing his sign on a neighbor's lawn.  I had been looking to have my kitchen redone, and had contacted other contractors in the past.  Knowing this neighbor is particular about their home, I opted to get an estimate.  I first met with the contractor's wife at a home show.  I also met with the contractor's assistant there.  I spent a great deal of time asking questions and explaining that I was very particular.  I also asked what kind of mess I might expect, and I was told that a plastic curtain could be put up to prevent dust from moving through the house.  After meeting the two of them at the show, the contractor came over to take some measurements.  I met with his wife at their studio once.  After that time, I never met with her again, but dealt with the contractor via email.  I was very anxious to get the work underway, because I didn't want it to drag out a long time.  It helped that I knew exactly what I wanted, but I would have liked to meet with the designer (wife) more than one time to talk about cabinet height over the stove, the types of hinges on cabinet doors, etc.  The only option I was presented with was a quick visit to the showroom with the contractor to double check a couple of things and to sign a contract (that didn't even have the exact cabinet price on it).  I knew the ballpark amount and didn't want to prolong the project, so I signed it. 
    I was told that the cabinets were ordered approximately a week or 2 later and that it would take approximately 6 weeks for the order to arrive.  Additional time was added for the Christmas Holiday.  Work finally began on February 11.  The job took approximately 1 week to complete with the exception of installing the backsplash.  I had a 2 week wait for my countertop to be fabricated.   I had my heart set on a quartz countertop, but my contractor did not have a provider for this.  I had to co-ordinate this with a store in the area who had a fabricator in Syracuse.  The turnaround time for the countertop was 2 weeks to the day.  The following week, I had my contractor back to hook up my plumbing and install the backsplash.  He also had to finish installing a "filler" next to the cabinet above the refrigerator.  The contractor had run out of the "filler" pieces and had to order more; so the contractor's assistant pieced together a skin of the same wood and some boards, thinking I wouldn't notice.  Otherwise, why would he go through the trouble of piecing it all together when it had to be replaced? 
    When the microwave was installed, it turned out to be so high, I had to stand on my toes to see the inside of it. After it was installed, he asked me if the height was OK.  I said, "it's too late now".  Then I was told that a filler piece could be installed below the cabinets.  That was done; but, I could have had a bigger cabinet above the stove and still would have had plenty of room for the microwave.  In taking it down and putting it back up, a clip broke off the top of the microwave where the bolt had to go through.  They proceeded to take the microwave apart to find the clip, only to find it was broken.  They then used tape in the place of the clip to install the microwave.  I was assured it would hold.  This was a brand new one right out of the box.  Had I been able to meet with the designer, this could have all been avoided. 
    When the contractor first came to my home to measure, I told him I had gotten a new floor installed the prior year and that I was concerned about protecting it.  I asked if canvas or special paper could be put down to prevent gouging, and he indicated he would use cardboard.  I had some problems with the install of the floor which I discussed with him, but I was still concerned about protecting it.  Nothing was ever put down to protect the floor, and several tiles (not including the ones that had to be replaced due to improper installation) had to be replaced due to the contractor dragging or dropping something on the floor.  My flooring contractor came back to replace them with the exception of one which I discovered after the "filler" had been replaced over the fridge.  The only time the floor was covered was when the countertop people came in.  I mentioned my concerns to the assistant, but he apparently did not share this information.  The contractor indicated, in his last correspondence to me, that I never mentioned covering the floor.  My response was that I shouldn't have to ask.  This should be something that a contractor would do as a normal practice.
    There were also areas of the backsplash were grout did not reach.  He told me it was grouted 3 times, and that it was hard to fill in 1/8th inch spaces which he didn't feel was correct for the tile.  I purchased the tile at a specialty tile store, and the recommended spacing was 1/8th inch. 
    I am glad the job is done.  I hope the microwave does not come off the cabinet; I was assured it would not.  When I asked a question or had a concern, the contractor seemed put out by it and a bit irritated that I would question him. I felt a bit intimidated as a result.  I feel that as a paying consumer, it is my right to ask questions and to keep apprised of what is going on in my home.

    Thomas J Farone built us a home that took almost a year to complete when we were told it would take 5 months. He is in bed with Scott Varley and Aubri Guiri on Bait and Switch tactics of telling you a huge amount of lies on what you get and never putting it down on paper. Therefore, you end up with a home that is barely built to code and well below quality that you expected. We have spoken with over 20 home owners that have built with him and over 10 other builders that know him. Every single one of them have VERY bad things to say about Tommy and his lack of integrity. He simply doesn't know what he is doing OR doesn't care. I think the latter. At some point I wouldn't be surprised to see him brought up on charges on various counts of robbery and deceipt.
    We personally had to start a lawsuit and then post a potential warrant for his arrest when we found out that he didn't even put our $50,000 down payment into escrow. Luckily, in the end, we go out of our contract because of this and walked away from a year of living a nightmare. Unfortunately, the nice people that moved in from out of town didn't know any better and bought our home that was valued $75,000 less than what it sold for by the bankers. The new owners still don't have anything fixed in their home after 1.5 years and there are a lot of things wrong or broken or missing.
    STAY away from this builder. It will ruin any beliefs that people are generally good hearted individuals.

    Pasquale Mignone
    a protective tarp was never placed over the framing. most of the framing was rain damaged and had to be redone.  contractor was very unresponsive and cell phone messages either full, no call back or delayed call back. there were 2 construction violations that were never cleared or fine paid. his workmens comp insurance ran out causing more delays. 30,000 dollars of windows were delivered and are missing. an independent inspection classified the quality as poor and value of the work at 150,000 dollars. he was paid 360,000 dollars. i tried to sue him but he declared bankruptcy with approximately 210,000 dollars of my money missing. repairs to correct poor construction and rain damage have cost me another 40,000 dollars. lawyers fees have cost me another 50,000 dollars.
