    Tru Renovations
    Gabe Baker showed up and was very professional, I explained what I wanted, he let me know what the possibilities were as far as lumber decking or brick. He told me he would get back to me in a couple days with a quote including materials and labor. The next day he gave me a quote of $1100 for material and said he would do the labor for $350 for the lumber and $600 for the brick. I told him I would see if I could come up with the $1450 for the lumber deck. He told me that he would contact me again Monday and see if he could come up with a better deal, knowing I am a single mom with 5 children. Monday came and I received several text from Gabe as seen below from the pictures of my messages on my phone. He flat out told me that he would charge me for materials and would take off the $350 for labor if I would spend an hour with him. Being a lady I thought there is no way he is asking what I think he is asking, he seemed very professional so I asked, what do you mean spend an hour with you? Do you mean going over the plans for the deck, I can do that? He replied saying when and where. I said, you pick I have an appointment tomorrow at 9:30 but I am free after that. He said your place good? I said, sure that way I can visualize what ever plans you might come up with better. He said will your kids be home? This of course struck me as a little odd but again I thought, he probably wants to keep things professional and make sure we are not alone which is exactly the kind of woman I am so I replied and said, yep they will be home. To which he replied, I don't think we are on the same page. confused I said, I'm very blunt for a woman so why don't you just spell it out for me. And then it hit me like a ton of bricks. I am not unintelligent but I sometimes see more good in people than there really is obviously and give too much benefit of the doubt. So I said, Do you mean meet you for ***? To which he began apologizing for his asking and admitting that he was out of line and then said, just go with the original price I gave you plus the $350 labor, but if you refer me to someone else I will give you $500 off the price. I was so upset and angry at this point that I didn't reply at all. He texted and asked, do you still want me to do the job? I replied No thank you. Its all in the text conversation below. I wanted to let people know about this because there is just absolutely no excuse for this kind of belittling garbage and its not okay to get away with it at all. A couple hours later I had to ask becasue it had insulted me so badly, and no real man would degrade a woman to this extent so I had to ask a pig such as he to attempt to find understanding. Why was I in your mind classified as the kind of woman you solicate for prostitution, because you flat out offered me money in exchange for *** with that request, rather than being seen as the kind of woman you respect and take home to meet your mom? he replied that he was attracted to me and his "cave man" instincts kicked in. Seriously?? My 18 year old son asked me.. what should he have done instead if he really liked you? To which I told him, as a professional you stay focused on your job rather than your desires so it should have just been a note of attraction in his mind and nothing else said but if he really was attracted to me and wanted anything more than just a one night stand, he should have given me a fair quote, done the job and did it well, then when the job was complete and the transaction was finished, he could have simply said, I was wondering if there if by any chance you would be interrested in going out to dinner with me so I can get to know you a little better? That way I had the chance to let him know if I am available or interested in him as well and we could have gone from there or I would have told him I am flattered but I am really not interrested but thank you. To which he could have simply said I completely understand I just didnt want to regret not asking later incase you were, I wish you the best and we both go about our business. My son agreed that would have been a much more professional and gentlmanly way to approach the situation. No matter what, this is the most disgusting degrading way to approach a woman and it is beyond sexual harrassment. This man now knows where I live, he violated my place of solitude and degraded my character as a strong independant woman who has worked my whole life to provide for my children and it should not be tolerated. Now you are informed of ust the kind of man who is offering to do "quality work" for you. Husbands be warned of leaving him alone with your wives to do work, and woman be warned of the kind of man you may intend to be hiring for work. Be safe.

    Last year we embarked on building not only our first but our forever dream home. After much investigation and interviewing several different custom home builders, we chose Ladd James to build our home. This builder represented himself to be a Master Certified custom home builder in person and on his website. When we checked references and did an internet search, it appeared he was a builder with considerable experience and in good standing in the community. He stated to us that he was very hands-on and would carefully oversee all phases of construction and that he would use high quality subcontractors and materials. It was important to us that he also represented himself to be a church-going Christian with high standards. He began work on our home in April 2015. Almost from the very beginning, it became apparent that he quickly fell behind the agreed-upon written schedule in completing construction tasks. It was also became quickly apparent that Mr. James was very seldom on the job-site providing oversight to his sub-contractors as we frequently observed when me or my husband would visit the construction site. Frequently the subs would be there not doing any work and when questioned, stated they were "waiting on materials" or waiting for Mr. James. It was apparent that there was very poor job management ,and when questioned, he would make excuses and allege that materials were ordered but were slow in arriving, and then later we would find out from suppliers that the materials had not been ordered when he said they were. As construction progressed, many issues arose concerning the quality of work that was performed. There were quality issues particularly with siding installation and window and door installation. It was very apparent to the untrained eye that windows, doors, walls, etc. were not plumb or straight. It became immediately apparent that windows and doors were not installed correctly when windows almost immediately leaked and doors torqued out of their frames. Mr. James continually claimed he would fix all the problems, but never did. In November, 2015 almost all progress on the home came to a halt and very little work was accomplished. The house was only about 50% complete at that point. Mr. James began evading contact with us even though we sent repeated texts, calls, emails. He was sent a certified letter in December which he refused to sign for or pick up. We then began receiving liens from subcontractors for work that we had already paid Mr. James for. He finally met with us in January and told us he had no money and could not continue building our home unless we managed all payments, promising that he would pay back what he owed and to fix the quality issues. He admitted that he had failed to provide adequate oversight on the home, agreed there were problems that needed to be fixed , and assured us that he "would make it right". He never fixed any iof the quality issues or did further work, nor did he pay off the debts to us or the subs. We terminated his contract. It is now March, 2016 and we still have an unfinished home with many repairs needed and much money owed to us by Mr. James which he now is refusing to pay and which will apparently will require litigation to remediate. In preparation for litigation, it was discovered that Mr. James had several judgments filed against his construction company in 2014. We are now having difficulty finding another builder to finish the work because apparently no one wants to take the risk of finishing a "defective" home or possibly being involved in testifying against a fellow builder. The whole experience has been a disaster and we would DEFINITELY NOT recommend this builder to anyone. Mr. James has not been honest or truthful nor professional throughout the process, and he owes us a great deal of money. We are just praying that we recover the money that is owed us and that we will be able to finish our house since we have invested most of our life savings in this home.

    Taurus Construction
    Taurus Construction provided a very detailed and professional looking itemized estimate for a reasonable cost to repair and paint the damaged ceiling drywall.  Once the contract was signed, we scheduled the work to be performed in a timely manner.   When the workers showed up, they were from another company.  Apparently, Taurus decide to sub-contract the work, which is common in this industry,  However, the other company never received a copy of the contract.  As a result, items that were quoted on the contract such as protecting the brand new hardwood flooring with a protective covering such as Ram board or using scaffolding where needed were not performed.  They said they could complete the job in one day, when other companies said it would take 3-4 days.  This should have been a warning sign for me as the workers began cutting corners.  Once I realized what was occurring, I attempted to communicate with the sub-contractors to wait for the paint to fully dry before applying a second coat.  I was informed that the sub-contractors did not speak any English.  I let them continue to work in hopes that a quality repair job would be executed.  However, the end result was that the ceiling has a ripple effect where the repair job was performed.  The repair jobs looks really bad now and I will have to hire another company to fix was work these guys performed.

    I've recently had All-State Construction / Mr. Roy Barnes install a new roof on my
    home. Initially, besides being about time to replace old roof
    anyway, I had a special roof leakage issue that I needed to address.
    I settled on one method of rectifying the leak issue. However, after
    consulting with Mr. Roy Barnes, he came up with a superior alternative solution
    which not only saved me a substantial amount of money, but was a better overall
    solution, in my opinion. The end result, our home now has a beautiful,
    well installed new roof that my wife and I can be not only proud of, but
    also feel safe and secure with.
    Mr. Roy Barnes of All-State Construction is not only very professional,
    highly knowledgeable, very courteous, but also is an attentive and patient
    man who listens to your needs. His great crew of Joe, Rick, Steve
    and several others are also very professional, courteous and obviously know
    what they are doing. Mr. Barnes and crew showed up promptly on the scheduled morning
    with all of the construction materials as well as all of the proper equipment
    needed to do the job right. Like a well oiled machine, they not only performed
    a beautifully professional roof install, but took great personal care of the
    surrounding areas as well as performed a perfect clean-up afterwards.
    Their efficiency and time management skills also were superb and appreciated.
    My gratitude and great thanks to Roy & crew!
    Suffice to say, I'd definitely rate them 10 out of 10! And of course I'd
    highly recommend them to anyone who had any roofing needs or other home
    related work!

    Shenandoah Design & Construction, LLC
    Shannon has amazing attention for detail and problem solving.  He is always professional and keeps the customer's wants and needs in the forefront of the project.  He goes the extra mile to make things right.  Our first project was gym flooring and finish work on a renovated basement area.  Shannon installed extremely heavy gym flooring, tile and finished all trim details.  Area turned out beautiful. Next project was a leaking shower that turned into a partial renovation of master bath area.  Tile and subfloor removed/treated.  New flooring in shower and floor was installed along with a new cabinet in water closet that he created from scratch.  I am very pleased with the end result.  Our last project was a beautifully made custom barn door for our foyer.  Door measures 8 x 4, weighs more that 200 pounds and is installed on a heavy duty track system.    Shannon created the door from a sketch he and I designed.  It is exactly as I imagined it would be.  The best part about the door is that it looks like it has always been there and not an afterthought.

    Choice Home Builders LLC
    Mack Brazell of Choice Home Builders contacted me fairly quickly after I used hislisting on Angie's List. We set an appointment time for a couple of days later and he was promptly at my home for the time scheduled. I informed Mack of my wanting to build a garage, we discussed the plan, he took some measurements, we talked awhile, and he told me that it would be 7,8 or 9 days and he would provide me with an estimate. That was the last I heard from him, he never responded, and it has been more than 2 months. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend Choice Home Builders.

    Chris Phillips Builders
    Mr. Phillips was able to work on a compressed time schedule and complete the dry in of the addition. His crew was prompt and professional. Chris was very helpful throughout the process in guiding our decisions and offering suggestions. It is obvious that he has a wealth of experience in all aspects of building. We were doing some things ourselves and he was more than accommodating on our requests. I had used Chris Phillips on one previous project before, but he is still as reliable as ever. I would recommend his company to anyone looking to build new or for remodel.

    Kins Griff Construction LLC
    I decided not to get the job done at all, but not because of anything they did. He was very professional. He talked to us about everything that needed to be done and was very informative. He only gave me an oral quote. He could have been more professional and had it typed out and included all the information.

    Lake Murray Contracting Llc
    I hired Lake Murray Contracting in October 2012 to build a side porch addition to our home. The project was completed and paid in full on November 6, 2012. After the first rain shower, I noticed a leak in the roof.  I contacted Lake Murray Contracting many times (November 2012 to November 2013), along with reporting the business to the Better Business Bureau.  Lake Murray Contracting did not make an attempt to contact me to resolve this issue or respond to the Better Business Bureau.  After no response from Lake Murray Contracting, I had to hire a roofing company to repair the roof leak in March 2014.

    Community Builders
    I was able to design and build the porches to my specifications with support from David Abbott. The quality of the work performed was excellent. The timeliness of the project was reasonable with regards to the weather. The screen porch is nearly maintenance free. It is an asset to our house and we use it daily. Our neighbors have commented on the front porch and it adds positive curb appeal to our house We had a small problem, but David was responsive immediately. We recommend Community builders.
