    Arn's Old Time Plumbing
    We contracted Mr. Orzel, the owner of Arns old time plumbing, to reassure, that he could compete the work on the schedule that my wife and I asked for. The work was completed five days before the Christmas holidays. My wife and I felt happy and believe Mr. Orzel is worthy of trust confidence.

    The builder said he would have the house built by January of 2015.This was said orally, not written. No completion date was ever given.  The first payment(a cash as you go arrangement) was  on August 15th, 2014. The foundation footers were not poured until December 19th, 2014.  The foundation was not poured until the middle of January, 2015.  Many weeks passed with no or little work done on the project. The house was not "finished" until September of 2015 when an occupancy permit was issued.  At that time, there was no gas connection to the house.

    Promises were made by the builder throughout the building process, but the buyer believes they  were not kept. Progress was painfully slow and some issues of code requirements arose such as wrapping the gables with a vapor barrier. The building department said this was required. The builder did it after haggling.  There were many instances of failure to return phone calls, text messages, and e mails. On the whole, the buyer who was paying the bills was largely ignored.. Not all problems will be listed here,  but enough to make things clear.

    With the house finished, there are issues relative to quality(not all listed here). The slab and foundation were poured in cold weather, something the  buyer expressly warned against.  Cracks are visible throughout the slab and they interconnect. The cracks may grow longer and wider over the winter  .The  basement foundation was not backfilled properly in the opinion of the buyer,  and moisture worked its way through the foundation causing a moisture problem in the basement. (the buyer fixed that at his own expense by dry locking the basement) The septic drain field was so poorly graded and left to go fallow for so many months that four foot growth was  covering the drain field. It  was eventually brush hogged  and seeded, but erosion of the soil is a major issue and winter will stop any significant root system establishment. The hvac heat pump outside continues to settle and requests for a stable mounting of the unit have gone ignored. The HVAC company told me I would have to pay to have the hvac unit mounted off the ground.

    The buyer has not made the final payment to the builder who wants to be paid in full. A legal representative was necessarily hired by the buyer because there is concern the issues needing attention will not be adequately addressed given the history of the builder/buyer relationship.  An escrow payment agreement has been ignored by the builder  though offered by the buyer.   

    At this point the septic field issue and the concrete slab issue stand unresolved although the builder said he "guaranteed" both. .Given the history of SLOW or NO PROGRESS, the buyer does not feel comfortable with a stand-alone guarantee without an escrow agreement for final payment.

    My husband and I have hired Bret on three separate occasions��to do work on our house, and each time Bret has met our expectations. Based��upon his attention to detail and the relationship we have built with him, we��would undoubtedly hire Bret for future work.
    We most recently hired Bret to do an addition on our home,��and we had a specific time frame in which the work needed to be done. I was��pregnant with our first child and due at the beginning of October, and we��decided to build an addition on to our home that would include the baby's��nursery. By the time we decided on the size of the addition and got through the��permitting paperwork with the county, it was the end of July. Bret took on the��job and made a commitment to have the nursery ready for the baby's arrival. Although��he essentially only had two months to complete the entire addition, through��hard work and perseverance Bret met the goal and we were able to bring our baby��home to a brand new nursery. We are extremely satisfied with the nursery and��the addition as a whole, and we are so grateful that Bret did not shy away from��the challenge of completing such a large project in a short period of time.
    As a contractor, Bret takes pride in his work and pays��attention to detail. He works diligently to understand the homeowner's wishes��and expectations, and he will utilize the knowledge he has acquired from his years��of experience as a contractor to ensure he carries out their vision. When Bret��works in your home, he does not seem intrusive. We always felt comfortable with him in our home. In fact, I actually appreciated his company in our home as I approached��my due date. His good nature and genuine concern for us as a family truly set��him apart from other contractors we have used.
    Throughout the projects Bret has completed for us, he has��gone from just a contractor to someone we consider a friend. If you want a contractor��who is professional AND personal, then Bret Kisley is the contractor for you.

    Horrible I had this contractor come out to temp cover my roof after a tree fell and caused damage. Then I had a few contractors give me bids for the work when I went with a better priced and referenced contractor he called the city and made false complaints about my house and the contractor I was working with. Causing me my contractor and the city a bunch of unnecessary headaches. So unprofessional just causing problems because I went with another contractor. So unless you want a bunch of drama I would steer clear of this guy because if you don't choose him he is gonna take it poorly obviously.

    Golden Rule Builders
    They finished building my house after another guy had messed it up. They did a good job. They were trustworthy and honest. I liked their cost and reliability and the quality of their work. I couldn't get anybody else to touch the mess that the original builder had left. Their price was fair and I am sure they priced me honestly.
