Carrera Homes
Unfortunately cannot rate Steven Delonga (aka. Carrera Homes, LLC) less than one star. This guy is a crook. Do business with him at your own risk but I highly recommend against it. The reviews you read are absolutely true. We were a subcontractor for this firm earlier in 2017 and were left with invoices worth thousands of dollars unpaid. Liens will be taken against your property for this type of debt. Other contractors have experienced the same with Mr. Delonga. Several have taken him to court and received judgments against him. His M.O. is that of a con artist that plays stupid when he finds himself short of change in a business deal. He lacks accountability in resolving issues with his clients and personifies the empathy of a sociopath. Don't be fooled by Steven Delonga.

I hired Carrera and Steven to build my home and it has been a very disappointing, frustrating and expensive mistake. Once they are paid in full, they disappear and leave you having to hire another contractor to finish the home. Carrera does not warranty their work. HIGHLY recommend you find another builder.

Our experience has been horrible. Steven Delonega takes your money and doesn't complete the construction. We never received fixtures we paid for 6 months ago, we have holes in our mirrors, amongst many other issues. They never completed a long punch list, provide poor quality workmanship, and have abandoned our project after they collected our money at closing. I would give them a -5 if I could.

ATL Contracting
It seems the decline of this business occurred over the course of 2016. My wife and I thought we did a good search for contractors to complete our basement and back porch. They had worked on a project with Hotel Impossible, they had plenty of pictures of their work with basements being their "specialty". They didn't have the negative reports online until mid year, after our search. Halfway through the project, everything was fine. Then the delays started. Craig Render, the owner, was horrible with communication. He hardly updated us on the progress and delays. I frequently had to call/text him to see when the crew was coming. These calls seemed to prompt his coming in. Much of the work, sheetrock and some framing was done by one man. It seems, from reading more recent complaints, that ATL Contracting was getting short on cash to finish projects in late 2016. Thankfully, most of the project was done, but the crew was greatly incompetent. The plumbing for the bath tub needs to be redone, I am paying ESTES to fix the air-conditioning which was not installed properly. By the way, the heating was a big issue that was only addressed by ATL CONTRACTING because I pushed them on it. They initially told me that I could start using the heater without an air return installed in the unit. A small thing to be sure, but they even placed the vents upside down and without drywall screws/anchors. Estes now tells me that they didn't solder the piping correctly so it could keep coolant. Craig was an avid Facebook poster with At Contracting. The FB page is not updated since January and their website is now defunct. Stay Away. Thankfully we did not do our porch. I would tear it down for safety concerns.

RAM Construction
The big bald guy in the Dodge Ram pickup is worthless. A total backwoods person without a degree trying to quote jobs. If he isn't the owner, he should be fired. Avoid this company ad their work is poor.

Do not do business with this company! We were working with two of their 'realtors', Chris Brady and Brian Mcclure, who ended up secretly purchasing the property we were interested in buying. They then convinced us that there was a bidding war with the original seller and resold it to us for a significant profit. These agents are not looking out for your best interests and will take advantage of you!

East Atlanta Builders
We purchased a townhouse in manor park in marietta. Construction done by east Atlanta builders. The roof leaks and also the foundation leaks. In general poor craftsman ship in drywall finishing, painting, sealing, I would not recommend this builder.

Webco did an extensive remodeling on our home. It included removing stucco, all windows and doors, and installing new windows, doors, brick and stone. Other builders we spoke wanted to bolt angle iron on the frame of the house and build the brick walls on top of the angle iron. Webco insisted that was not a good long term solution. They dug down to the brick ledge of the footings and began the construction of the new brick walls on top of the brick ledge. Consequently our remodeled home is built like it was new construction. We couldn't be happier with the result.
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
