Recent Home Builder Reviews in La Porte City
- Fairbanks BuildersCraig Fairbanks was always honest and upfront from the start of the project. He and the company worked well with us to try and keep the project in budget even under unforeseen occurrences. Craig had very good knowledge throughout all phases of the project from digging the hole to finishing touches and landscape. He was able to stick to the original budget except for extras which we wanted. The prices charged for our extra demands were very reasonable. Since the house did not get finished until the end of December, Craig had to finish up the landscaping the next spring. It did take a while to get the landscaping finished but the grading is great and we've never had water in the basement. We've also had him do work after the house was finished since we do trust his work as a contractor
- JENSEN'S NEW & OLD CONSTRPrompt & they cleanup after themselves very good. Has come back if we've had any problems. This is the 2nd job we've had them do. Willing to work around your timing & prompt. Very personable. Have referred them for other metal roofs.
- BEN STRICKERT CONSTRUCTIONThe job was completed on schedule. Sometimes there were gaps in the work, but some of those can be accounted for as work being done off site. Ben worked closely with the people of the church to come up with a design for the new wall that everyone loved. We have subsequently had a leak, but it happens so infrequently that no one has been able to diagnose it. Ben has looked at it, but it's hard to fix something you can't see broken
- Pretty Properties. LLCPretty Properties constructed a free standing deck in a rather complicated setting, Using the Home Depot design software they created a detailed plan, ordered all of the materials and had everything delivered on the day work began. The owner, Michael Chapman was frequently onsite to make sure that everything went well. The price actually came in under his bid! I'm very satisfied with this contractor and I will use them again. They are a licensed general contractor able to take care of a wide range of home remodeling and construction projects
- KLUNDER HOMES INCThey were busy last summer and it took awhile to get started, but once they did, it went fast and they did a fantastic job!
- Runyan Brothers Construction and Runyan RealestateSam is good to work with and is willing to work with you. This was an insurance claim job and Sam made it right. He actually hired another crew to do the roofing; Sam honored his commitments and made it right. He got the roof up really fast and the price was competitive. I will use him again in the future
- Tim Buck ConstructionI expected to spend several hundreds of dollars or more to have this work done. Tim Buck Construction started and finished the work in only a few hours and for less than $200. Great job and great price. I called them on Friday morning, they came out and assessed the work, came back Saturday morning and was done before noon. Awesome
- Trees Construction LLCA contractor with absolute INCOMPETENCE in leadership that left the job UNFINISHED. They were a total nightmare to work with. The project manager left/was fired halfway through the job, they failed to pay multiple subcontractors thousands of dollars so subs quit working and started coming after me for payment, communication from the owner was at the level of a second grader, and they won't come finish the needed repairs from final inspection after nearly a year and a half since starting. Don't waste your time, energy or money with this crook
- Magee Construction CoIMO... Very shotty work.. leaking windows, mushrooms growing in window sills, Gaps in flooring, drywall looks like a 3 year old did it. Will not return calls let alone fix the issues.
- City BuildersThey were a real pain to work with. They put the roof on and the next day the same two guys were taking the shingles off and I asked them why they were taking it off. They told me that they thought it was the wrong color but I thought it was the right color and matched the rest of the roof. I was watching them from my kitchen window off; I just couldn't believe it. The price was the same as what everyone else’s price would have been. I told them that they would not get away with changing the tile. I did not understand why they did that. I thought that was stupid of them to do that. The hot tub is lovely and that is because a different company installed it in. They could have gotten it done faster if they were punctual. The quality of work they did was okay; I am happy with it. I would use them in the future only if there was no one else
