Fixed leak near chimney and replaced some boards. They told me the leak would not come back, but it did they charged me a arm and leg just for some tar around the chimney that was not fixed. I had to have the roof replaced and the roofer that did it showed me the spot they missed. I will NEVER use FETH again. Over priced and lack of Quality.

Now for the review, Feth Construction likes to make sure you know how many years of experience they have and that they stand behind their work. In my experience with them nothing could be further from the truth. I now have a 12' by 15' slab of concrete with two concrete steps that looks like crap. There is a section about 4' by 15 that is discolored, the edges of the steps are all chunky, an area at the bottom of the steps ( 4 inches by 3 feet ) pools water because they probably laid a board down in that area to work from. This pooling of water in freezing temperatures will be a very bad slip hazard. Where the steps meet the concrete floor of the patio there are cracks and/ or holes that will allow moisture to get in, we all know what moisture does when it gets in cracks and freezes right? A fascia board had to be cut down to make room for the height of the new concrete, it was not cut down small enough and is now about an inch and a half from being flush with my deck. A piece of my deck floor was busted when they removed the fascia board or when they put it back on. The front walkway was poured in three pours because you can still see the seams. These seams should have been smoothed out, why they allowed them to remain is beyond me. There was a small plant near the walkway which was stepped on and broken by one of the workers. My contract with Feth Construction said I was to pay half at start of work and the other half upon completion. To me this does not mean you can just show up and provide me with concrete that has many flaws? But.......... Denise Feth called my wife up and tried to get the final payment even after my wife informed her we had issues with the way things were looking. Denise Feth informed my wife that final payment was due upon completion of work and that Feth Construction expected to be paid. My wife informed her once again that I would be checking the work closer Saturday morning which I did. I then called Denise Feth and told her the concrete looked like crap and she said that concrete is concrete and that the stain would slowly go away over time. I have never made final payment and have had three other contractors come out and look at the work and all three of them said it was terrible workmanship. One said it looked like something a homeowner with little concrete experience would accomplish. The other one said it looked like something kids would do. The one Feth boy admitted to me that the area with the stain had begun to set and they had to add water to the concrete to make it workable. One of the contractors told me they probably also added another ingredient with the water to give it the stain. I cannot remember the name of the ingredient. I provided pictures of all the areas with problems and asked for a return receipt that they received them via e mail. I sent numerous e mails over the next two weeks and also submitted a claim with the BBB. I never was contacted by Feth Construction until I finally received a voice mail fro Tim Feth saying he wanted to come out and see what he could do. I returned the call the next day to Tim Feth but once again he did not answer his phone. My wife says that while he was at my home working that he was constantly on his phone but when I try to contact him there is no answer. I left him a voice message and told him I was not paying any more money and I would prefer that he remained off my property. I finally received an e mail saying that they did not believe what my contractors had said about the concrete. They want to have some of their own contractors to look at the work and determine how good of a job they did. I don't let people who did a crappy job to begin with have any of their friends/ sub contractors come out to voice their opinion. I can just hear them telling me how good of a job the work is. I was also offered to have the final payment of $1630 cut down to $815, what does that tell you? In the e mail they also said that they could have someone resurface the concrete and then put down a layer of substance on top of the concrete to make it right. I called up one of the contractors and asked him about adding a layer and he said they will probably use a cheap mixture of sand and cement which would only last a few years. That is Feth Constructions idea of standing behind their work. I sent an e mail back telling Feth Construction that I would use a local contractor who specializes in fixing concrete to come out and look at what can be done and to give his opinion on the quality of work I received. That was yesterday so we will see what becomes of that. After this all works out I am hoping to add to this review but do not know if I will be able to do so. I am prepared to go to small claims court and if the concrete cannot be repaired to my satisfaction I will be asking for the $1630 back that I have already paid. One last thing I forgot to mention. When I had Tim Feth come out and give me an estimate he knew exactly what he had to do. At that time I made sure to tell him I did not want the Redi Mix Truck to come into my yard. I asked Tim if using wheelbarrows to move the concrete from truck to where it needed to be would cause a problem and he said : No". In the last e mail I received from them here are their own words.......... Any flatwork company with any professionalism will agree that maybe the finish could have been better but the bushes, deck, steps, cantilever, the wheel barrowing of concrete, and the sun worked against us. There was never any mention of any of these being a problem when the work was being done, only after did all of those obstacles above come to light. The weather was also very nice during the two days this work was done. Here is another portion of the e mail I received from them: We have been in business for 19 years and this is the second time I have come across concrete not turning out and in that instance it rained and ruined the finish. And we had a surfacing company from St. Louis come out and put a topper finish on the concrete surface the customer was happy and it did not cost even close to $ 1,630.00 which is the amount that is due to us. We are asking that you meet us in the middle with payment of $ 815.00 and we will then give a release and lien waiver of $ 2,445.00. For a contractor who has been in the business for 19 years ( if you could see the add they run in the local paper they say they have 25 years experience ) to do a job like they did is amazing. Anyone can say they have only had one other issue, it just amazes me how quickly I became only their second person to not be happy. Remember folks, do not make final payment on any job you contract out for that you are not happy with. Even if the contract says final payment due upon completion you should not pay because if you do there is no reason for them to make things right. In this case I paid to have brand new concrete which would have lasted for decades at my house. What I now have instead is a slab of stained and defect riddled concrete which Feth Construction basically is telling me to just put a cheap layer of coating on top of it and it will all be good. That is their idea of quality workmanship. If I am going to now have to place a Topper Finish on top of the concrete it is not going to be by some contractor who does shoddy work. it will be done by someone who will give me professionalism and quality workmanship, both of what was not delivered by Feth Construction.

Description of Work
Feth Construction was contracted to remove old concrete patio along with two concrete steps in back of house and remove stone walkway in front of house. Both of these areas were then to have new concrete poured including the two steps. This was a two day job so on the first day a jack hammer was used to destroy the old cracked concrete in the back of the house, in the front of the house the stone walkway was removed. Day two saw the final removal of all debris and the forms were set. The Redi Mix Truck showed up around noon or a after and because I did not want my yard tore up they used wheelbarrows to move the concrete where it needed to go. I work on second shift so I had to leave around 1:15pm, the work was still going on at that time. Day three two boys showed up to remove forms.

I own a 60 year old home with 60 year old windows. Tim Feth and his employees replaced the windows, roof, and painted the exterior. He did not just roof over the existing shingles, he tore it all off and replaced the roof. After all his jobs, he cleaned up every bit of his work. I have not found one nail in my yard. He is courteous, knowledgeable and very accommodating. I intend to hire him to replace some countertops, more windows, and electrical work. As long as I own this home, I intend to strictly use Feth Construction.

My experience with Feth Construction was amazing. Tim and Denise are professional and friendly. Tim was able to come out the same day I requested an estimate. He gave me a fair estimate; didn't try to gouge me with work that wasn't necessary; and was out within the week to start the work. I had a lot of old peeling paint on the trim along with some rotted boards and he did an amazing job! His work was professional and they did not leave any mess for me to clean up. His prices are very reasonable. You definitely get what you pay for with Feth Construction. It appears that Tim follows the old motto "do the job right the first time." I will continue to use Feth Construction as long as I am here. I would highly recommend them to anyone!!!!!!!

Description of Work
I had all the trim on my home scraped and repainted, several windows replaced and roof replaced.
