Home Builder reviews in Nokesville

    Mike Fusco Builder
    I called Mike for a quote on a residential living room addition. He was quick to reply, professional and punctual on our agreed date of meeting. He was easy to talk to and had a great wealth of information on building and met all of my requirements. I appreciate his understanding with my limited amount of free time (full time working mom of two kids, one a 6 month old) and the ease of being able to get in contact with him at any time. He was able to give great recommendations for the construction job and a ball park estimate. We are waiting to decide on what direction to go with the build currently but if we are able to afford Mike's level of craftsmanship I know we will be happy with him as our contractor.

    PIGHINI BUILDERS
    They didn't use the proper wood for the deck and the nailed it in. The railing is about to fall off and we need to get a professional to fix it. They used three nails on the shingles to save money and they fly off constantly. We have to get a professional for that too. The trim on the outside door actually has a mushroom growing on it and the house is 6 years old. The son who is the contract manager says he will be by to fix things but he never shows up. This company promises a lot but the delivery is terrible. The roofing specialist that came out said that the pitch warranted a completely different kind of roof. No wonder it leaked until we put the hurricane shingles on it. I really don't believe that this much caulking would be all over the finish work if they knew what they were doing or they cared. The house is still standing even though the Windows, door and deck are rotting while the shingles fly off. Think real hard before you use this company. I am now an expert on what should have been done to my house while being built-too little too late.

    This was one of the worst experiences of our life.  The signs were prevalent throughout the process but unfortunately we didn’t notice them until we reflected upon them.  (Isn’t that always the case!) The house was delivered almost a year later than the contract delivery date and over four years later than the original promised date by the builder. Working through the blueprints and costing of the home took a lot of time and each iteration did not include the modifications (or errors depending on your perspective) from the prior revision because the builder didn’t take notes during any of the discussions.  He repeatedly called another meeting to talk about items we had already made decisions about.  During this period the builder also showed us his bonds, insurance, and license.  These all ended up being false because they were all for a former Class A contractor company that he owned not the one he represented himself as to us.  He also gave us false information about the property – most notable the lack of an HOA and covenants then at the signature table presented us with documents for the HOA.  Once all these issues got worked through the building process got started. In the end we couldn’t complete a punch list because the list of significant non-cosmetic issues was so large that cosmetic issues were the least of our problems.  At closing the builder promised in writing to fix all the issues (over 500) within a year.  About 35 of the issues were worked on before we moved in about a month later and we were only able to get him out to the house once to fix a couple of window leaks.  It may seem reasonable that we should not have closed but we were bleeding cash from the delays and had another $350k in the house above the builder’s costs.  So what seems reasonable was not really rationale.  Here’s an abbreviated list of the issues to fit into the word limit.  A slightly more detailed version of this document is included as an attachment should you wish to avoid them with this or another builder. 1.       The builder did virtually no supervision of any of the subcontractors, individual tradesmen, and contract employees.  The builder did not coordinate the work of the subcontractors, individual tradesmen, and contract employees.  They would show up randomly, remove completed work from the other trades, and leave before their work was completed, not clean up after themselves, and not show up for weeks. 2.       It was difficult to ever get in contact with the builder, whether it be us, the subcontractors, tradesmen or contract employees.  On one occasions, when the well was being drilled the subcontractor had a clause that stated they would drill until depth approved by the builder to a maximum depth of 1000 feet.  They hit water at 120 feet and tried for three days to contact the builder.  At that point they hit 1000 feet.  This makes it difficult to chlorinate the well and of course the builder passed this cost to us. 3.       Water infiltration from above, below and the sides – meaning the roof leaks, the basement floods, and water comes in from the windows and doors.  Add to this the drainage for the house is from the outside to the inside then pumped back to the outside. ·         Structural mistakes were made on the house.  The wrong rebar spacing was used in the foundation, the wrong fill was used putting pressure points on the wall, the floor joists were improperly sized, and the wrong anchor bolts were used. ·         Electrical mistakes were made.  A 400 a service was installed on a 7,000 square foot house instead of the 513 a calculated by two electricians.  The well pump was installed without the wire approved for immersed use and was 2 sizes too small.  This resulted in the wire exploding in a box.  Circuit breakers were mis-sized and incorrectly installed.  Manufacturer installation instructions were frequently ignored resulting in a non-working generator, unsafe switches, and missing safety equipment.  Branch circuits were improperly wired resulting in failed circuits and inoperable lights. ·         Plumbing mistakes were made.  Basement drains were improperly installed and not properly located resulting in standing water after a storm, flooding in the basement, and black (sewer) water backing up into the house.  The hot water recirculation system was improperly installed, bath tub spouts leaked into the walls, and the dishwasher installation was so poor both the dishwasher and all the adjacent cabinets had to be replaced. ·         The insulation of the home was a major point in the purchase of the home but the sealing of the home was ineffectual.  There is missing insulation in many parts of the home.  In other areas the insulation was not the correct type and there are gaps in insulation especially around outlets and protrusions.  None of the exterior walls were sealed.  Because of the use of the improper type of insulation in the ceiling and undersized rafter vents going up the cathedral ceiling there is a thermal bridge on the second floor.  ·         Windows are not Low E and were made for Southern Florida not Northern Virginia.  They were improperly installed resulting in water leaks around most windows and air leaks around all of them. ·         The builder allowed the HVAC subcontractor to drag their feet during the entire building process to the point that all the other services were installed before the ductwork was in.  There are large holes in the supply duct, leaks in roof vents, inoperable dampers, and unsealed return air ducts.  The second floor unit supplies air at 20 degrees different than the attic generally cooling the rooms in the winter and heating them in the summer. ·         The builder installed rejected flooring materials in the house.  There were large gaps in wood floors, planks with reject marks present, splintering wood, and rotted wood installed in the home. ·         The build did not build the home by the blue prints included o   Installed a four bedroom septic for a five bedroom home o   Windows that are indicated on the plan were simply not installed o   Walls were built at the wrong heights

    CONSTRUCTION INSPECTION SVC
    Construction Inspection Services, Inc. misrepresented the quality of the work, the nature of the material, and they did not verify the
    information in the reports. 
    The inspections did not uncover errors in the construction of the dwelling on Lonesome Rd that should have been obvious to a qualified inspection.  These include:
    1.      The vertical steel in the foundation walls was placed approximately 24? on center, while the plans and geotechnical
    Investigation called for steel placed between 6 and 8? on center.
    2.      The stoops are not by plan and are unsupported at the first step.
    3.      The back fill type is not correct and installation was not in accordance with the plans.
    4.      There is an extra footer across an area way.
    5.      The mechanical drains were improperly placed.
    6.      The plans called out for the designer of the foundation to perform the foundation inspection.  Construction Inspection Services, Inc. was not the designer of the foundation.
    These result in:
    1.      The foundation walls being undersized for the soil conditions at the site which could, at some future date, result in failure of the wall and lead to property and personal damages.
    2.      The stoops failing which could result in personal injury.
    3.      Increased pressure on the walls increasing the possibility of wall failure.
    4.      Creation of a water basin around the house which prevents proper drainage of the water away from the house.  This has resulted in the flooding of the basement at every major storm.
    5.      The extra footer adds a stress line for the basement slab.  The slab has crackedacross this line.
    6.      The mechanical drains prevent the proper drainage of the basement and results in standing water which has caused
    problems with mold and mildew.  This increases the possibility of a personal medical condition.

    Thomas Custom Builders Inc
    While I am sure that Thomas Custom Builders (TCB) will get plenty of reviews about the quality of their work (which is excellent), I wanted to take the time to complement them on their professionalism, attention to customer service, and overall impression. Our project was a fairly major addition, with all the steps of building the whole house. The project (from initial concept to completion took about 8 months). About 4 months of that was the planning/permitting phase and about 4 months of actual construction. Rick Thomas spent the first months with us planning and working with their architect to meet our vision on paper. He was always prompt to meetings, attentive to phone calls, spent as much time as needed answering questions, and wrote a fair, complete and thorough proposal that included a detailed description of work, what the expected outcome was, start and end dates, costs. He spent a lot of time with us without charging us to come up with a ball park figure. His estimates came very close to the 'end' cost that was in the statement of work. Also detailed were total cost and payment schedules. Payments were broken down very reasonably and we only paid for work that was already completed or in process. Once work was started, we had a 'core' group of TCB people. There was always at least one TCB person here to supervise sub-contractors and TCB uses many of the same subs for their jobs. They TCB people were extremely friendly and courteous and made sure that the house was left in as livable a state as was reasonably expected at the end of each work day. Subcontractors were also polite and did their best to not disturb people. If a problem arose or a TCB person would not be there one day because they didn't have work that day (that only happened a few times), they would let us know the day before or that morning. Work was kept on schedule and if the schedule would fall behind, David would knock some heads together and get things moving again. The biggest thing is that on a project of our scale, several unexpected things or problems arose along the way and TCB did their best to resolve the situations without adding time or cost to the schedule. This was a big deal as I have worked with some contractors that if anything went wrong would not cover costs etc. TCB stayed to their original cost quotation, with the only increase coming from our change requests and the increase in cost was quoted in writing, an additional statement of work was written, and cost agreed upon before work was started. The extensive work on the statement of work, creation of and meeting the schedule, and management of costs and personnel are all things that made TCB an outstanding group to work with.

    SPECTRUM HOMES INC
    These folks were a joy to work with. They were very up front with costs and schedule. Kept in close communications at all times. They worked with the designer, electricians, plumbers, stone masons, etc... to head off potential problems before they occured. The carpentry was top notch. We have been quite pleased.

    Golden Rule Builders
    The guy seemed very attentive to what we wanted done. We haven't had him do any work for us but we didn't mix him out from our first meeting. He just took the time to listen to what we wanted. He gave us few suggestions. We kind of had an idea of what we wanted already. He gave us alternatives. He gave us an estimate based on what we wanted and he had a few important suggestions. He did not try and up sell us anything. He was good on responsiveness. We will use his services again in the future.

    William was the contractor for building the complete house and when we bought it we were so impressed with his craftmanship we contracted him to do the remodel. He will build us a three car detached garage to finish the project.

    It's beautiful. The designer and cabinet maker made a couple of design errors. Garrison Homes changed the design to accommodate and keep the project on schedule.
