Cook Residential
I have never been more DISAPPOINTED in a builder than with the manner that Cook Residential misrepresents their craftsmanship and professionalism. They have left more than a dozen homeowners in their Shadowstone development with major erosion problems, HVAC failures, and many other issues that they never seem to resolve. Knowing what i know now... I would not purchase from them again.

We contracted in September to build a house. Gave a $10,000 deposit. Listed our current house to sell. They kept promising the house would be done, so we sold our house. We are now living in a rental, and they never started the house. They finally admitted it won't fit on the lot THEY picked, and just gave us our money back after insulting us. They are horrible people, and are liars. I think they don't like veterans, as my husband was approved for a VA loan. We WILL be taking them to court. DO NOT BUY from these unprofessional, unethical builders/realtors. They will only waste your time!

Mountain View Home Builders
Living nine hours and one state away from our future home site, I did extensive research before happening upon Mountain View Home Builders in a Southern Living Magazine.  Not only was this company a member of the Southern Living Custom Builder Program, it was also an Earth Craft Builder.My husband, Jim, and I had plans in hand when we met them. He was willing to work with us and once a price was settled upon, he worked very diligently to keep items within our discussed terms.Because of the driving distance, we only visited our home twice during the construction process.  Jim and I had, and do still, have the greatest respect and admiration for the owners as trustworthy men and as home builders. Our home is well constructed; care was taken during the building process, the job site was kept clean and neat, and most MVHB subcontractors are worthy of high praise.We have lived in our home 16 months now; the continuance of service is excellent and all needed repairs have been completed in a timely manner and with the utmost care.If Jim and I were faced with the process of building anew, MVHB would be the only builders we would trust to construct a home for us. Jim and Denise Taranto, Hiawassee

Please let me describe our experience with MVHB, but before I do so, let me explain a bit about my wife and I. We have done a fair amount of upgrading/remodeling to our own homes as well as building our own homes. I feel we are not your "average” person looking to have a home built, as we are very knowledgeable about the process, materials, as well as quality expectations for various building trades. In addition, we own a business which provides a service to the homebuilding industry, which is curb cutting for driveways. We have several hundred customers who build homes. Prior to venturing out to choose a builder, we had never heard of MVHB. So with all of that, why did we select them to build our house?  In brief, we randomly drove by one of their jobsites, and were impressed with the cleanliness of the job. No trash; materials neatly stacked; not your typical residential job. This prompted us to take a closer look inside at the quality of the construction. Everything that we saw was above and beyond the quality level that I see every day in dealing with my own customers, Concrete finishing was superb ; framing was nice and fit together tightly ; painting was very neatly done ; roofing was nice and straight etc. etc. Definitely a class of subcontractors that care about their work.  We are very meticulous, and sadly, a majority of our own customers would not satisfy our expectations.When we finally got our plans, we called MVHB, as well as one other builder. The MVHB pricing “estimate” was very comparable to the other builder. We did feel that they were more interested in doing our job; offered to do modifications to our plans at no charge, and their feedback from prior customers was excellent. They also allowed us to do certain things on our own, in order to help us save money. Overall, our experience was very good with MVHB. They were very attentive to our job, coordinated their subs in an orderly fashion, and cooperated any time we had a concern or a last minute change on something. They were on the jobsite almost daily, keeping an eye on the project. If our selections affected the budget dramatically, MVHB would make us aware of the approximate cost impact. Our electric bills for cooling are amazingly low, thanks to their superb insulating techniques.When you do have an issue or problem, (and there was never a home built that didn’t encounter issues or problems), they will do everything within their power to correct it and make you happy. We love our home!Kent Hayes

Mountain View Home Builders
When Nita and I started planning our new house project, our biggest concern was finding a builder we could trust and rely upon. When we met the owners of Mountain View Home Builders (MVHB), our concern was laid to rest. From our initial meeting until the end of the project, they made the project an enjoyable adventure. When we met them, we told them we were very “picky” in how we wanted the house constructed. They received this bit of information openly and they provided us with a quality constructed home.Our home is a Southern Living house plan and MVHB is an approved Southern Living builder. This information was the major reason we initially contacted them about constructing our home. Another was the glowing remarks from their former clients. Once construction commenced, I talked with all their subcontractors and they also reinforced our decision to have MVHB construct our home.We have never seen or heard of builders who managed their project as MVHB. The project site was always kept free of construction debris and their contractors always adhered to MVHB policies while on the construction site. We were always kept informed as construction progressed from permitting forward. From the onset, MVHB coordinated our wishes into reality. Needless to say, if we should build another house in the future, we will definitely hire Mountain View Home Builders as our primary building contractor.Steve and Nita Cannon, Dahlonega

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.
