Review by a homeowner in Highland Park, IL
Project: Build a Garage
THIS COMPANY IS NOT BBB ACCREDITED. PLEASE check Lisa Madigan's office and the Illinois State's Attorney General. Custom Garages and More were paid the full value of the signed contract. The final payment was paid before final inspections. We paid it on good faith because we felt we could trust Custom Garages and More. This was a move we came to regret. Custom Garages and More has placed and processed a Lien on our home for a total of $3,000.00. A very questionable move, considering we had a check ready to give to them to complete our business. ***We simply asked for properly filled out Final Waiver of Lien Release/Contractor's Affidavit from Daniel Goles. This was never provided to us. It is an Illinois law that a contractor must provide the Final Waiver of Lien/Contractor Affidavit if requested by home owner. For those who don’t know what this is, its paperwork that protects you from Liens being placed on your property by the contractor and or their subs. Custom Garages and More decided instead of providing this, to place a lien for $3,000.00 on our property. ***Custom Garages and More hired and brought into our home questionable workers that cause us fear - please check the BBB complaint and Angie's List. ***We experienced many quality issues with the work done by Custom Garages and More. Every time we brought up quality issues to them, it would turn into a huge fight even to get them to fix things. One of the main changes that had to be addressed, was due to a huge mistake on behalf of Custom Garages and More with the entire height of the garage. In addition to that change, we supplied all of the materials for that modification. ***We currently have a major construction/foundation issue involving the new cement apron in the opening of the garage (see photos). It is sloped down and into the garage. This has resulted in water pooling into the garage and puddling around the opening of the door frame. We are already seeing the beginning of wood rot because of the water accumulation every time it rains. We have reached out to the cement folks that Custom Garages and More used, they are not returning our calls. At one point, we had the (new roof) leak for seven days before anything was resolved as well (see photos on Yelp and Angies's List). A good example of the lack of quality control by Custom Garages and More. We have since asked to have the concrete pitch to be fixed before paying his Lien, and he has refused while still suing us. He also had removed any warranty as well. ****If you are interested in this in our complaint in it's entirety, please reach out to Lisa Madigan's office. All emails, all attempts of communication, all responses, all documents and copies of the submitted Lien waivers, and all of the details are on file with them. As a consumer, you need to request this report.****
Response by Custom Garages & More, Inc.: I will keep this short. 1) I built this project over a year and a half ago. Never once heard about the concrete. We passed every inspection 2) If the concrete is wrong? Why was it not a problem when I replaced your entire flat roof to solve the leak problem. If it leaked inside for 7 day as you say, why was there no problem with water in the garage then? And why did you not call or write a letter? 3) A huge mistake in the wall height? yes 3" too high is a Huge mistake! no it wasn't. but as usual you took full advantage and said and I quote" since you have to lower it 3"! we want you to lower it 3'!!. for free mind you.. cause in there world they can change everything and expect it done for free. 4)These bad people changed the entire project from a flat roof building to a gable with cedar overhangs. I wanted to stop the project and get revised arc. drawings. They demanded we keep moving along And wanted it all for free. So they owed over $8,000 and I agreed to $3,000 to get away from them. They responded to offer 1,000 and they would recommend me and rave about everything.. but at 3,000 I did everything wrong. I have been a member of the BBB for over 8 years. and never had 1 complaint till I met these bad people. (who also had 2 contractors in before me and had problems with them) glad I felt bad for them and there sob story. (they play the victim very well) i should have ran away when the night I met him he was sitting on his porch locked out of his house by his wife and told me the door window was broken by his wife throwing something at him. If that wasn't a sign from God to tell me to run away.. nope! missed that one.. Please check my A+ rating with BBB even though I did not pay the $500.00 fee to be accredited this year. please check with the states attorney. or please contact me and I will explain this project and talk about these bad bad people. or look at all the other reviews and see the work that we do. Everyone has been happy except one. Or call Highland Park building dept. and discuss how they feel about these people. It's been a year and a half.. yet still haven't paid the 3,000.00 because they wanted the you play games with the lien waivers I supplied. or the different ones i ran around and got to please them. bad bad people... Sorry not short :)

The contractor kept you up to date on every aspect of the build. The workers are very curious and have an eye for detail, they cleaned up after themselves each day. Would hire them again.
