Home Builder reviews in Camas

    The Design Department Inc
    Pat came recommended by the builder we selected who had years of experience working with her over many projects. We really enjoyed working with her during the design and planning of our custom home. She is a great communicator and helped us through a very complicated process to achieve a result that was beyond our dreams. She is very detail oriented and completed her tasks very quickly. Her design ideas were great and she was very patient during the development of the project. I will not hesitate to use her services again and recommend her firm without reservation.

    Highly intelligent, great design ideas and insight into my current designers lack of thought. Referenced another designer to me to finish out the practical aspects of the project. Would definitely hire for quality, but was higher priced than I would like to pay. Might still use him in the end.

    Merritt Custom Homes
    I have always wanted to build my own clean, green home and after owning five in several states, including the last here in Camas with a remodel from HE double L (another contractor). Given the market in 2010, I bought the piece of land but had to wait another year to sell my house nearby. I then had to move my home where I work full time to a rental for six months; so to say I was stressed is an understatement. While considering the lot with a realtor friend, I spoke with several builders including a well-known larger builder who touted their and ldquo;build anywhereand rdquo; program when they built one 2010 Clark Co. parade home. It turned out they were anything but custom build friendly so the realtor friend and I wasted six weeks. Justin Merritt was recommended by someone in one of the trades for whom he had built a home. There were a couple of other people recommended by other people but Justin seemed the most open to me being involved in terms of choosing some subs (tile, flooring, tile roof, cabinets) and/or having veto power over his). He also was very patient while I was selling my other home; he spent hours of time with no assurance the project would ever be a go; in the meantime recommending a good plan drafter and engineer. We finally started July 2011 after the excavator ran off with the dirt promisedand hellip;and completed the project last December. To say I reviewed every detail is an understatement and ndash; down to the type of nails on the roof to insulation). All his subs did a good job and I was particularly pleased with the foundation, framing, plumbing, and drywall which can make or break a house if it's not done well (so far only two screws will need to be addressed and ndash; had about 100 in MN when I moved in to new construction several years ago). In the few cases where something did not come out as expected; it was fixed. Justin is a really nice guy who knows his and ldquo;stuff.and rdquo; So far he has been great with call backs for minor painting, etc. and I trust will continue through year end. In closing I was much more hands on most homeowners, especially being female. I don't think any other builder could have survived the process, let alone still had a smile at the end.

    Merritt Custom Homes
    We started our experience with another builder, who I fired because of some personality red flags. After reviewing many different options in the region, I landed on Merritt Custom Homes. Our budget was set with a and quot;close friendand quot; pricing structure, which Justin Merritt reviewed and committed that he could achieve the same results within this set budget. We very quickly learned another issue with the former builder in that they were going to break code and build foundation over a sewer line without telling us. Mr. Merritt brought this quickly to our attention and we still made our plan work by making a few, small modifications.
    This was our first experience in building a home. We've heard horror stories from bad contractors to marital fights. Working with Merritt Custom Homes was so easy and straight forward we found it hard to know what people were talking about. The way the pricing structure was laid out made it easy to track cost adders and savings, keeping us on budget. He was prompt in getting us answers and working with us doing things a bit out of the box (providing many of our own hardware and materials). Our semi-retired neighbor, who is a bit obsessive, took pictures, watched and evaluated the whole process eventually giving us notes on how the contractor did. His comments were that the framing was the best he'd ever seen and that no other house he'd watched being built around us was built this well.
    We were extremely pleased in the result and in the process of building our dream home. There are rough spots and problems with each home build. The difference is how the contractor handles it, and Merritt Custom Homes handled each issue with promptness, getting subs (or himself) to quickly handle things and takings things personal to make it right. I have recommended and seen his work with friends and the comments are the same as mine.

    Merritt Custom Homes
    Everything went great. We had some soil fill concerns that was not disclosed to us when we started escavating. Merritt quickly hired PSI to do some soil tests and helped us receive $5K compensation from the developer. He paid for PSI on his own dime. That's what contractors do when they care and aren't after a one time profit, but more of a life relationship with customer.
    Merritt kept everything tight and the subs working there everyday. He fights for his clients and yet his subs respect him since he is loyal to them but won't let anyone get taken advantage of.
    Building a near million home has a huge risk for my family and I am absolutely amazed at home smooth it went.
    We ended up buying a direct buy membership so we could buy cabinets, windows, fixtures and other stuff at a whole sale price and he had no issues with us intervening into any aspect of the house we wanted to. He only charges us for the services he provided.
    In the end I honestly felt like he under charged us for the amount of work and effort he put into the house and for how amazing it turned out.
    This house is easily a Street of Dreams Winner!!
