    Sisson Design Builders

    I've had Gregg Sisson complete many projects for me.  Our first experience was the completion of a $75K plus kitchen remodel.  The project was a smashing success in both quality and schedule.  His pricing is very competitive and he is fair with changes during the process.  Gregg is a pleasure to work with and very honest and trustworthy. 

    We then had Sisson remodel our basement.  He has an excellent flair for design styles.  This project was $40K plus

    I have also had Sisson complete some structural fixes in our 20 year old home. 

    I've recommended Greg to friends and plan to use him again on other projects as needed.

    I highly recommend Sisson Builders for quality remodel work

    D L Lyons Construction Co Inc
    As a "jobsite" (his phrase), my home has been constantly covered in trash, material, and generally unclean. In his defense, I was not able to move into the home right away because it was uninhabitable (awaiting some flooring in two rooms and the bathroom remodel).
    He began to lay ceramic tile in my bathroom floor. This is a brand new floor. The entire bathroom (except the top half of the drywall) was gutted and the subfloor was replaced. For some odd reason, even after using some self leveling mixture, the tile would meet at angles so sharp you could stub your toe or chip them. The spacers were practically ignored -- some tiles came butting together and others with giant gaps. The ceramic board installed on the floor and walls turned out to be a jigsaw puzzle -- offering water many, many gaps to find its way through as time wears things down. I immediately put a halt to any further work on the tile by him and took over the job, as I have laid tile in the past for approximately one year. He was nice enough to rip the floor back up for me. Unfortunately, I still had to replace almost all of the cement/backer board on the walls and buy new material out of pocket (remember, this was part of a loan). Later, I questioned him as to the location of the glue for the tile on the walls and his reply is that he was told to use "thin-set" on the walls -- in my experience, a giant No-No. He incorrectly bid this work and wasted precious time and money on the cheap job he did provide.
    We had bid a $700 whirlpool tub. After the fact, he didn't realize that whirlpool tubs required extra work (e.g. a pump). We accepted that and chose an alternative tub for less than $400. He called me and said they didn't have it in cast iron but he could pick up a steel tub. I agreed on the basis that it would be cheaper and quicker. Little did I know that I was going to end up with one of the cheapest and ugliest bath tubs one could find. I'd imagine he should have at least ran this decision by me a second time or tried to match the bath tub we did choose. The labor on the bath tub installation was $500 -- I feel like I got ripped off but don't know the going rate. This was separate from a $450 labor charge to install "fixtures" on the tub/shower. He also decided to run his own plumbing -- while not a huge issue, he is not a licensed plumber and did not pull permits; both of which are required by the bank and by the city.
    He was supposed to paint all of the walls + ceiling with Kills Primer and a single color white paint. He was also supposed to fix the drywall. It's not finished, but I suppose it looks like it's making decent progress. Unfortunately, he also has paint all of my floors (they were not properly tapes down, or in the case of my slab -- left uncovered all together) as well as some windows.
    He was supposed to replace all of the doors + door fames in the house. There's countless gaps, and even some broken trim on the inside of the door. I also still have the actual doors sitting in the hallway, not hung.
    He was supposed to replace the French Doors on the back of the house. He was nice enough to allow me to choose a Sliding Glass door instead of another set of French Doors, since it was both more cost effective and a better usage of space in that room. However, the french doors are still sitting there with their giant 2" - 3" gaps letting in cold air + insects while my new sliding door is hanging out in the garage.
    He bid $3500 on carpet in our contract. Later, he came back and said it will be $4,600 and I need to supply $515 out of pocket after expenses I've saved in other places (Appliances). He tried to blame this on me by saying I changed the carpet type -- but it's right there in paper. After banging my head on the wall for a while and talking to people, I've finally realized that he was planning on carpeting a room that shouldn't be carpeted, didn't originally bid in the price of carpeting the living room, and it's all just a huge mess. In the end, I'm going to end up leaving the stained (not the good kind of stain, either) hard wood and just try to get carpet installed in the living room.
    He laid allure in the fire place room. On one side of the room, it's already peeling. There's a long line where these strips end and meet ceramic tile -- it all looks broken and ugly; what is this transition supposed to be? Those French Doors I mentioned -- they've allowed a lot of rain in on the allure before I realized it and he literally crumbled up some plastic and shoved it underneath the French Doors to try to stop the rain.
    I could go on and on about the quality of his work and how he loves to make random decisions about things that should be personal choices (painting the hand rail mounts gold when the hand rail was never part of the bid??). I could also tell you a lot about how he refused to provide and itemized invoice of the expenses so far and threatened me with a lien on the house when I told him I was going to send a change request to the bank to remove that carpet from the bid, so we aren't over budget and I can get something in my living room.
    In the end, I needed to keep him out of the house for a week while I go out of town for work. I told him he is not allowed to enter my home. I added a very visible "No Trespassing" sign to the gate and a padlock. Aside from forcing his way through the gate or jumping the fence, there should be no way he could have gotten into the house. I told him that I was happy to meet him to pick up his tools and gave him 5 options over a 3-day span that should have been reasonable. He agreed to meet me that next morning before 10. I texted him at around 9:45 to learn he had already gained entry into the home and picked up his tools. He even took a garbage can that was introduced later on (after my mom came by to help clean up the place a bit) and dumped his trash (cigarette packs, random drink containers, etc...) on the floor of my garage.
    Now, I'm between a rock and a hard place. I doubt many on here will run into this guy -- but please be careful with the contractor you choose if you do pursue a 203k streamline loan. Also, make sure to store that money in your bank account and only pass it along as needed.

    Jeff was very professional and patient as I debated what size garage I wanted and where to put it. Every time I changed my mind he would come to my house re-measure, mark off the location etc. Once I finally made my decision and paid my deposit. The work
    began very soon. The First phase they did the excavating, put up the forms and poured the concrete for the garage footer and floor. The next phase they built the garage in a week ! Then they put up the forms and poured the concrete for the driveway & patio. In about 3 weeks they finished the job. It was well done. Jeff managed the job properly.  It took less time for them to
    build the garage than for me to decide what I wanted.  I like that they use American workers that were very knowledgeable and hard working. I couldn't be happier with the job they did and I'm a hard person to please. We were fortunate that the weather co-operated during the building. We only had one day delay due to rain.
    A few suggestions for you if you're considering building a garage: 
    You'll need to consider the cost of landscaping the area around the garage. The Bob Cat excavating tears up the grass.
    You'll have additional costs for running electric to the garage.
    There may be some work required on your part for cleanup of the job site when they're done. In my case I had a deck torn out and I had to get my son to take the debris to the dump.
    I got several estimates and no other company provided these services in their bid.

    He was amazing. Very considerate of our needs. I would recommend him highly. He is very particular about his subcontractors. He also kept us well informed every step of the way. They did excellent work, and he was very easy to work with.

    I work for a contractor that does a lot of business with Witt Construction.  We have seen the type of work they do.  So my expectations were high and they exceeded my expectations.  I needed my living and dining room painted which they were able to do in one day.  The guys did a great job with no mess.  I highly recommend them for any construction needs.

    JD Enterprises Inc
    The entire process was very smooth. I placed a call to Jim and set up an appointment for an estimate. He came out and surveyed the damage. Jim provided a written estimate and a time frame for the repairs. Jim took care of all the details. My landscaping was covered before work began which ensured that my plants were not damaged. The crew was very friendly and always arrived on time to begin the work day. The work was completed in a timely manner while still paying attention to the details. They even swept my yard 3 times with magnets when they were done to make sure there were no nails left behind. My entire neighborhood was damaged by hail, so I was able to compare the work of JD Enterprises to what went on with my neighbors, so I know I made the right decision. The crew was not some random group of subcontractors and JD clearly did a better job than some of the crews my neighbors hired. The whole experience was very pleasant and I will defiantly be calling them again for my future needs.

    Rick and Company do beautiful work and always go out of their way to please the costumer. Our big remodel was completed about a month early. They showed up everyday, on time, and ready to work. On Thanksgiving (with the remodel 85% complete) it began to rain from the pot light in my kitchen-our new whirlpool tub was leaking. We didn't know it ,but one of the jets at the factory hadn't been sealed. As long as the tub wasn't filled it worked perfectly, so we could shower. We called Rick and he offered to drive the 30-45 mins to our house. We thought it would be okay until the next work day just wanted him to be aware of the situation. I know I have commented mostly about our big project, but the kids bath and crown molding was  the most recent thing we've had done (who wants to see a 5 yr old report). Rick still maintains the highest quality as always and I'm sure I'll be calling him in the future. We I speak of Rick I and speaking about everyone that he works with. Couldn't ask for anyone better. Very professional, friendly, and personal.  Thanks Rick and Co.

    Millennium Fine Homes
    On December 22, 2008, Millennium Fine Homes, LLC (Millennium) was contracted to build a custom home. After eight months and twenty-three days of the nine month performance period and being behind schedule an estimated 120 days, Millennium did on December 3, 2009, walk away from the job and defaulted on the contract. The Homeowners, in an effort to reach an amicable resolution with Millennium?s failure to perform, sent Millennium a Cure Notice providing Millennium a seven (7) day cure period, as required by the contract, to provide Homeowners reliable assurance that Millennium would perform the contract according to its terms and conditions. Due to Millennium?s breaching the contract and subsequent failure to provide reasonable assurance to cure; the Homeowners, on December 13, 2009, terminated Millennium for default for breach of contract due to failure to perform. Also on December 13, 2009, the Homeowners issued Millennium a Demand Letter demanding the return of all funds drawn from the construction loan account but not dispersed to subcontractors/suppliers. Millennium refused to comply with the Demand Letter. The parties went to arbitration starting in July 2010. The homeowners won and received an Arbitration Award. On November 4, 2010, the Greene County Common Pleas Court awarded a judgment lien against Millennium Fine Homes, LLC, in the amount of $222,651.73 as a confirmation of the September 15, 2010 Arbitration Award. Demand for payment was served on Millennium Fine Homes, LLC on November 11, 2010. Millennium Fine Homes, LLC, owned and operated by Mr. Douglas A. Pund, Jr., who now also does business under the name of Millennium Real Estate Development, LLC, was found to have materially breached its residential construction contract, was ordered to refund an overpayment of construction funds, and pay additional construction costs (?cost-to-cover?). As of this report (January 23, 2011), Millennium continues to ignore the responsibility to pay the awarded amount to the homeowners. This judgment lien can be viewed at the Greene County Common Pleas Court Recorder's Office.
