We had a very hard time working with Chad's Design Build. Chad is very responsive when you first contact him for a quote, and also when he is seeking payment. However, he is not very forthcoming when there are issues with project management. When we first met, we mentioned that we were planning to replace our roof and that we had already signed a contract with another contractor to do that work. C...

We tried very hard to cooperate with multiple subcontractors on this jobsite. There were 2 guys whose business was called something like "two old farts" who were asking our staff questions and needing guidance. Our dumpster was used by other tradespeople on the jobsite. Everything about this job was unusual and atypical. We prefer to work with our clients to clarify job scope and cost prior to ini...

Chad is a very unprofessional and arrogant business person. He canceled our first meeting only 15 minutes prior to our meeting claiming that he was delayed and not feeling well. I had taken time off of work to meet with him. We rescheduled the meeting but then he called 10 minutes prior and stated that he would be delayed. He was late 30 minutes. After we discussed our remodeling intentions, he in...

Our website clearly states that we charge for the process of pricing a project.

The extra costs many contractors seem to discover AFTER the project starts; thee...

Chad's is extremely unprofessional. At a minimum, they should have returned my call if only to say that they are too busy or too highbrow to undertake that kind of project.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Contacted "provider" regarding repair of screened in porch, replacement of deck, and new front door. NEVER RETURNED my call. Went with Exterior Renovations, who did a great job. Would NEVER contact Chad's again.

They did a very nice job. It turned into quite a project. They had to take down some siding on the outside of the house to check and diagnose where water had gotten in around a big picture window. They rebuilt the frame round my good picture window, leaving the window in place. Then they painted it so you can't even tell. The owner came to the house and gave the estimate. The employee he sent out ...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
They helped us repair rotten damaged wood around a large picture window in the living room.

I never received a call returning my 2 phone messages.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
 I left 2 messages and didn't ever receive a return call for an estimate request; so I didn't pursue it further.

We have gone back and searched all calls and messages to our business line at 6082211799, which is also our listed number with Angies List. We did not receive any calls from this person, and we would appreciate the removal of this negative review, which has no basis in fact. Our office is open from 830 am to 530pm Monday to Friday. All messages left after hours are returned the next morning. While...
