Home Improvements By Randolph
Very unprofessional and the work was bad. He said he had a warranty on all his work but the front door started separating from the frame, the garage door is too high so my garage floods when it rains, he didn't finish the roof on the garage, he didn't secure the lock on my front door. He also took 2 weeks longer than he said to do a bad job. And he will. It return any phone call to come and repair his poor work. Do not use him at all, you will be very disappointed.

M G Matthews Construction Inc
Small vendors beware. Mr. Mark Matthews wanted to hire my small cleaning business to go in and clean a 3000 square foot building. Upon request for a work order and trying to agree on a price for my services he stated that he needed me to just go in and do the work and he would "take care of me" and advised that he's been doing business this way for over 20 years. Told me he didn't have time to write up a simple work order, expected me to go in and do the job and trust that I would be compensated fairly. In the end I emailed him a final request and he phoned me taking a very unprofessional tone even after I explained that I had never even met him and that I did not feel comfortable doing the work without a written work order. He insulted my business ethics and hung up on me. Very unprofessional.

Paxton Construction Corp
Wes Paxton of Paxton Construction Corporation was issued at least nine code violations for the construction of my Norfolk home. Workers did not always show up on time or when scheduled. Pile Foundation of the home shakes excessively due to undersized, over spanned girders and overloaded pilings as reported by a Forensic Engineer and another structural Engineer. The home was set on the foundation crooked, and the gap filled-in with Great Stuff foam. Bolts holes, for the bolts holding the girders to the pilings, were drilled less than an inch from the edge of the girders, in violation of the minimum edge distance for these fasteners. Paxton installed R-19 insulation in the cathedral ceiling instead of R-30. Areas of the attic had absolutely no insulation covering them. Plumbing was incompletely installed and unvented through the roof. When I presented the liens waivers given to me by Paxton to the office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth in Richmond, they confirmed my suspicion that the lien waivers provided by Paxton were performed by Official Misconduct of the Notary and requested, I submit them in a formal complaint. As for the comments made above by Chesmomof3; Did he build your house? Did he sue you? Did he forge your name? Does your house shake back and forth like an RV on wheels, with bad suspension? Did he have unlicensed contractors work on your house? Did his son-in-law file suit against you for him? Did his daughter commit official misconduct while signing your lien waivers two weeks after the principal signatory signed the lien waivers? Did he alter the lien waivers he gave you from the suppliers? Did he get all his permits and inspections for the work he performed on your home? Did he settle out of court with you? Did he pay you $10,000 and dismiss the alleged $42,000 he was sueing for, to settle the morning of your trial? I bet not. Why did he drag me through a 2 year long legal battle and settle minutes before the trial was to begin? Your probably just friend trying to cover for him. How sweet of you. You obviously know who I am. I gave a real review. With real facts. From real experience. You are just trying to defend someone you know. Good for you. Have him build your next house. Better yet, buy mine. LOL, I didn't have insurance coverage to pay my legal fees. My costs to defend this suit were in excess of $50,000. That is real money out of my pockets. Not from an insurance company. I wasn't defended by my daughters lawyer husband. All the money I paid was real cash money, so he would not get away with what he did. And guess what, he didn't. I have paid for my right to write a review. There is so much more to this case than you know. With all this interest and concern with what happened, maybe I should make a website and include all the documents, evidence, and the depositions, so you can all see for yourselves what a great contractor your friend, Wes Paxton is. I see is not being used anymore. hmmmmm........ Maybe you can write an informed review when you truly know both sides of the story. I would be happy to provide all the evidence I have from both sides of the case. Maybe I can start a blog to get public opinion on the entire case. Wouldn't that be great? You did bring up a good point about there being two sides to every story. I want to be fair.

Paxton Construction Corp
This Company is a first class contractor. They have a stellar reputation and have many glowing reviews from previous homebuyers for whom they've built homes. I read the previous review, and just remember that there are two sides to every story. People will say and do anything to get out of paying!
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.
