    Great communication. Although it was the rainiest year so far, when we had a 4 day reprieve, they were out there laying new driveway. They communicated when an unexpected situation came up and worked to resolve with for a reasonable expense. Will be using for grading landscaping again soon.

    Initial work was very good then scheduled follow up for further service, they dropped off the map. missed appts, no return calls, texts or emails. Not sure the issue, I am not aware we did anything wrong... Last correspondence was cordial!

    SUMMARY of Garage Drywall Project done by HC Construction & Grading LLC company The people were not trained drywall people. Three of the four workers had never hung drywall and two of them were new with the company. When they first started the job, the drywall T Square was brand new and no one knew how to operate the drywall lift. The holes cut in the drywall for the electrical boxes were cut too large and not exactly where they should have been in the sheet of drywall. The drywall finisher had to “mud” some of the electrical box holes to close them up. In places along the south wall the gaps between the drywall sheets were about ½+ inches wide and had to be closed with “mud”. The drywall finisher left a mess that he did not clean up and the other crew had to do the clean up (we were not told what the agreement was between the HC Construction & Grading LLC company and the drywall finisher). The crew was inefficient and did not get a lot done on days that the project leader or owner was not with them. The 2 guys sent by themselves to put the primer and first coat of paint on the ceiling, walls and 4X6 baseboard did not prime more than 2/3s of the baseboard. This along with a poor primer and first coat of paint on the ceiling, walls and baseboard ended up requiring a 3rd coat of paint on everything. When the crew was finishing up and trying to put eye bolts into studs behind the new drywall to hold bungee cords that hold our 3 ladders against the wall, the person using the stud finder did not know how to use it to find the studs. We have to fill and touch up the paint on 7 extra ¼ inch holes in the wall. I would rate the job at 2.5 out of 5 points. The cost turned out about 25% above the estimate. Part of this was because of a “quick job” of looking over the garage before making the estimate (the “deadwood” in the back of the garage was in the wrong place on the back wall. This was not this contractor’s fault, but should have been found during the estimate review. The owner of the company said he would come back to the job to check it out with us. He never came back to check out the progress or the quality of the final product. On the last day of his people finishing up the project. He emailed us a revised bill (we had already paid him 55% of the original estimate) and asked that we send the check for the balance with his project leader. We disagreed with him on one of his additional labor cost items and he agreed to cut that item in half (2 of his 4 people were standing around doing nothing when this labor item was being worked on). We paid them in order to close the project! When we were talking with the owner during our phone interview concerning his company, he kept telling me that they had the ability to"€œdo it all"€.
