Review by in Sugar Hill, GA
We worked with John and Dennis to add a large addition (800 sq ft) to our home. They’re a great pair to work with as Dennis does well with the numbers and budget and John is extremely communicative and responsive with us as clients. John acted as the project manager throughout and helped us navigate all the complexities that come with adding over 800sq feet to an existing home. Our addition included several rooms, a master bathroom and outdoor deck. The subcontractors were all extremely professional and did great work. No major home project goes exactly as planned/on schedule but John kept us in the loop with changes and any delays and we feel that the end result is exactly what we wanted. I’d definitely work with them again (already planning on it) and recommend them to others. They do what they say they’ll do and exhibit integrity in their work.

Review by in Grayson, GA
they do not do the work, give to other company so they don't stand behind work, things are falling apart and they will not fix it
Response by GAR: We regret to see this review. We worked very hard to make the customer happy and he was at completion. He has not contacted us with any issues. He did continually try to hire our subcontractors on the side without our involvement. Perhaps this was the issue and unfairly projected onto our company.

What I liked most about GAR/Greg is that when I told him I was on a budget. He came up with a deck plan idea on how he can build a new deck and stay within my budget. He did a great job.

I hired GAR to replace a load bearing basement wall with (4) 22 ft LVL beams. The entire project took just a few days. Every step went smooth and I'm very pleased with the end result. I would recommend using GAR for any construction project. I plan to use them again in future projects.

Review by in Peachtree Corners, GA
There is a total breakdown in communications between the party in the company. The project manager abandoned my job. He was verbally abusive to me ( I have the text message) and the owner knew that, I never got any apology. I hired them in February, job still not done.
Response by GAR: We worked very hard with the homeowner to make a very tough project (home had major issues when they purchased) to get as much done for them given their very limited budget. The project did go on because the homeowner was not keeping up with draw payments in timely manner. In the end we went back many times to address anything and everything she brought up to make her happy. After doing all that, she ends up telling us she did not have the money to pay us. This is probably why she dragged us out and put us through the wringer. We still have not been paid after 7-8 months even though she said she would pay us when her property sold. We unfortunately had to file a lien on her property.

Project is progressing very well. Still in early stages. So far very good work product. Communication, professionalism and project knowledge from project manager is excellent. Overall, a very good experience in working with GAR on my basement remodeling project. Excellent company with very good sub-contractors. Outstanding project manager on my remodel, who managed the project very well and communicated with me every step of the way.

The installer did not originally follow the plans for our custom-designed deck. Because the size of our deck didn't work well with standard designs, our salesman laid out a very attractive design that we liked. Although he had been given the plans, the lead technician, for some reason, did not follow them. Fortunately, our project manager was quickly able to correct this situation. Due to having to remove and reinstall the decking, some new decking had to be reordered. This affected our original due date, but we are so happy with the final design and its quality that that is not an issue for us. Also, once the installation Foreman understood the design, installation moved forward rapidly and we got exactly what had been planned for.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.



NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
