Review by in Metairie, LA
I had a major plumbing pressure leak inside if my home. There was extensive damage throughout. Lamp Development was extremely quick to survey the damage, begin the drying process, and demolition. Plumbing repairs had to be made, walls had to come out, cabinets had to come out, flooring, , etc.â ¦then all replaced. Major repairs throughout the home. Iâ m so impressed with the quality of their work, their helpfulness and guidance, and the care that they show in every aspect of the project. I will definitely hire them again!

We are using Lamp Design Build to do a major renovation of our home and are currently over half way through the project. It is coming along very nicely. They have worked with us to get the most out of our budget, provided great recommendations in designing the project, and are very satisfied with the quality of work. From the office staff to the onsite workers, everyone has been a pleasure to work with.

Review by in Covington, LA
Do not hire this design build company! Mel Lamp, the father/architect, had wonderful ideas, but: 1) the survey he secured came in two times more expensive than quoted, 2) we did not get a set of issued-for-construction plans, with details, and 3) the addition was not built as drawn, i.e. our addition was to be a handicap accessible suite, but there does not appear to be the blocking required for grab bars and a wall mounted sink. We found that Matt Lamp, the son/general contractor, lacks customer service skills and mostly provided budget materials when quality was needed. This is contrary to the image they projected of their work at the outset. He has only been to the house twice, but it's been 180 days since we signed a contract for about 700 sq.ft of living space. When confronted about the management of our project, Matt became agitated and was unable to finish the conversation; he hung up and we haven't spoken since that day. Others have called, but not the owner. It seems two office/project managers quit, and several employees have left or been fired since our contract began. An entire month passed (Aug/Sep) during which little or nothing was done at all. Additionally, no toilet facility and few, if any, personal protective equipment were provided for the workers. We paid every change order, and made every effort to assist workers and staff. All checks cleared without issue. However, the job is not completed, they missed the deadline, and no one is answering our phone calls today. What a mess. And they knew we needed to be done by October 15 because our family will be staying with us next week for an upcoming event. We are very dissatisfied!

We recently hired Lamp Property Development to put in our back screened porch. Lamp designed it just how I wanted and the staff even finished earlier than expected, I'm so happy with how great it looks! Definitely recommend.

Review by in Ponchatoula, LA
My husband & I has hired LAMP Properties to design & build multiple projects for our personal home and our rental properties. The range of jobs they have done for us so far include, renovations on our rentals, re-shingling a roof, siding, gutters, and adding a beautiful outdoor patio & kitchen area to our home. Each and every crew was very professional, polite and hard working. At days end, they even cleaned up behind themselves so the only thing you noticed was the improvement when the jobs were finished. The communication between us, the design team, the project managers, and the office staff was exceptional. We will defiantly use LAMP Properties / Design + Build again, when we need any other work done.

Project: Build a Garage
My husband and I are just thrilled with the finished garage/shop that Lamp built for us. We were not real sure about the design, but knew that my husband needed space to work and a place to park my car. Lamp designed and built a 3 vehicle garage with one section being a work shop for my husband. The entire staff from owner to the work crew were professional and courtesous.

I hired Lamp Property Development to build my office building for me. They did a great job on the design! They also did a great job on the construction, from the ground up. I was so pleased with Matthew Lamp and his crew. They were professional and had everything done on time. I was very happy with the entire experience and would highly recommend them for whatever project you are about to undertake. I used them for several projects and they are my number one go to contractor.

Review by in Albany, LA
Once again Lamp was so incredibly helpful throughout the process of adding our screened patio. They know I was rather particular about our screened patio and wanted it to look as though it belonged to the house and not a later addition. Thank you so very much for all your help and for the great quality!

Review by in Covington, LA
We originally were looking at doing an outdoor kitchen with Lamp, but I am very glad that we did not. We ended up just getting a back patio. We were lined up with Gerald, who made communication very hard. He didn't respond to calls and messages at a timely manner whatsoever. We took off multiple days of work to meet Gerald to set out the flags and multiple days he didn't show. The concrete workers came to form up everything and had no clue where to set it up. I had to take an additional day off and miss an appointment to come do Gerald's job for him. The concrete crew was very pleasant to work with and truly did an outstanding job. There were some footprints in the primer at the end of it, but they were eager to make it right. We had absolutely no issues with them. Mr. Allen Klein and his crew were great and I highly recommend them. I feel bad because our frustrations with Gerald got pinned on them and they were never of any fault to them. Every time my wife and I tried to explain to Gerald and Lamp why we were upset, they made it seem like we were mad at Allen and we were not by any means. My wife called to clear things up with Gerald as things were getting out of hand. He kept cutting her off on the phone and then lied to her and said he did things that he did not do. My wife was home when they did all the work and we have cameras as well. He then hung up on her. Horrible customer service! He tried to tell me differently and talk around my wife to me which is disrespectful in itself. She had every right to be upset as so was I. We are paying a lot of money to a company that isn?t doing what they said they would do. My wife then spoke to Sherri who told her that she would make things right and then cut down the price and that the general contractor would come out to survey the property before we had to pay, but come to the end of the job, this was not the case. She ended up changing her story as I heard her on speaker phone and no one came out to make sure the job was complete. She actually ended up hanging up on my wife at the end of that call when my wife told her to have someone come pick up the check, and we are done with LAMP. This was the worst experience we have ever had. I express again that we were pleased with Allen and his crew, but extremely disappointed with Lamp. This is not how businesses should be run.
