Review by in Swartz Creek, MI
We hired Dave and Matt to remodel the first floor of our entire home along with taking out our old deck and building a new sunroom off the back of our house. We were nothing but satisfied with the quality of work and have already recommended them to many of our family and friends.
Response by Motor City Builders, Inc.: Thank you for your business. It was a pleasure working with you. We look forward to helping with your next project! Talk to you next summer

Review by in Linden, MI
At first Matt made you feel confident in the companies abilities to get the job done on time with no issues, however one of the workers cut around the electrical outlets instead of removing them or asking me to have them removed. This caused the outlet tabs to sit inside the drywall rather than on top where they should be. This also caused me to purchase oversized outlet covers. Paint runs were visible around the windows. Taped seems are showing through. The worst thing was when Matt came to get his final payment. As he was leaving I noticed the front entry door was damaged. He called his carpet person and told me and my fiancé that the carpet installer seen that on Thursday, the last day work was performed. He tried to claim that someone probably tried to break in. I live in the front of the sub where parents line up for the school bus. I checked my game camera and it happened to be on that prior Tuesday and took a picture of the open door which showed no damage. I sent this picture to Matt with a time and date stamp on it. He offered to install a door if I bought it. I did not damage the door, his people were the only ones coming and going through that door. I even discussed it with a Genesee County Sherriff who has serious doubts that someone would try to break into the front of a house that backs up to the woods. Matt has not responded to my communication attempts in a reasonable amount of time, so I am forced to seek a legal remedy to this situation. Because of his response to this situation I will never use this company again and we had been planning on using them to install granite counter tops, but can no longer trust them in our house. I don't see a way to add pictures to this review. See my review of this company on Angie's list or yelp for pictures.
Response by Motor City Builders, Inc.: (This is the same review and response I gave Brian a week ago when he wrote the review on Angie's List. I have still not had contact with the homeowner, as did I hear from him after my first offer I made him after the damage occurred). This is Matthew Poirier with Motor City Builders. I want to start by apologizing again for the situation. We are more than willing to work with you and make things right as I mentioned in my last email to you. I offered to fix the few minor paint drips that you noticed and you and your fiance agreed it was not necessary, I even offered to install all the plate covers at no additional charge even though it was never part of the original contract, again you declined. As you gave me the final payment you told me you were satisfied with the work and wanted me to install granite countertops in your kitchen. As I was leaving you happen to notice that your front door was damaged. There is no way for us to know the true cause of the damage, yet I still offered to take care of the problem by covering 80 percent of the cost and said if that wasn't acceptable to you, please give me a call to discuss. For $150 you would have got a new door which was in need of being replaced, and I felt that was a fair offer. Instead you decided to get 4 other bids, go to the Sherrif department, then got on and left me a bad review, without giving me a call first as I kindly asked of you. Instead of taking the extreme actions you did I wish you would have called and talked this out. I am trying to be reasonable and fair with you. To make things right I am willing to replace the door, labor and material, as well as paint the door to match your existing color, free of charge We can be out there next week to install a new door for you. My phone number is 810-210-5848, please call me to get an appointment set up to get it installed. As I said from the beginning I am a very honest guy and take care of my customers. Have a great day and hope to talk to you soon.
