Review by Cynthia W. in Sandy, UT
The work, once accomplished was done well (aside from not making the sidewalk the length I asked for), however, a project that should take 2 weeks at the very most has taken 7 months, with someone coming to work on it about once every 3 weeks. They make promises they don't keep, don't answer phone calls, don't call with explanations or intended plans. I call, leave message, texts, no answers, no return calls, etc. The entire summer and fall has been a nightmare working with these people. They have no integrity whatsoever, and Kent will try to blame it on others, but he is the one not returning calls, getting workers here, letting me know what is going on. Project still isn't finished, and I have a yard full of junk that has been sitting here for months. Sprinklers have been nonfunctional for at least 3 months, and won't be until I call someone next spring to figure out what kind of mess they left me with. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

Review by in Saratoga Springs, UT
Great, honest builder! We had never considered building a custom home because we thought it would be well out of our modest budget, but we are so glad we found Kent Nickell Construction. We got a custom home, with much higher quality and standards than the big-name builders offered, at a BETTER price! He was easy to work with, was willing to let us bring our own ideas to the table, worked with us to get upgrades at cost without outrageous upgrade fees (some of his suppliers gave us free upgraded options just because they like the guy so much!), and even gave us allowances to shop around for some things on our own when we requested. All things we couldn't get with other builders. Our lot was surrounded by homes being built by a big-name builder at the same time ours was being built, and comparing the quality side-by-side with other builders only increased our appreciation and confidence in Kent and his quality of work. The only drawback to the process was a bit slower timeframe than we were originally quoted, but it was well worth it for the home we got in the end. Would recommend Kent in a heartbeat!

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.
