Brownlee Construction Inc
Brownlee Construction put a new roof on my home in 2011 after the hail storm. At the time, I marveled at how quickly the work progressed from beginning to end. It seemed as if that new roof was up in no time. In retrospect, I should have asked my salesman a lot more questions, such as what kind of flashing was being used in the valleys of my roof… what kind of method were the roofers using to overlap the shingles to ensure a watertight home. So now, six years later how would I assess the quality of work? Horrible! If you’re looking for a roof that keeps out rain, a business responsive to your needs, professionals that provide competent work and honor their word, Brownlee Construction IS NOT the company for you. However, if you like a smooth sales pitch, a company quick to cash the check, or if you have money to waste and are looking for a business to provide you an endless parade of excuses as to when they will come inspect and repair their shoddy workmanship only to find out they have no intention of doing either, then you should give Brownlee Construction serious consideration. But… BEWARE! If you do decide to hire them, go ahead and get a quote for the installation of inside gutters while you’re at it, because you are going to need them. Call today, and ask for Greg.Sam Taylor IIIKnoxville, TN

Mid South Construction
DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!! Poor workmanship that they DO NOT stand behind! Did siding job that was done poorly. Needed to be redone. Sent people out 3 or more times to just retack. Even one of their guys said it was not done correctly to begin with.

Protech Builders
Had a two car garage built by pro tech and have no doubt they are some of the worst carpenters I've ever seen.They slap It together and have zero pride in their work!The garage collects water when it rains and no expansion joints in the concrete driveway.The driveway has cracked in several places.Shop around and find a contractor that knows what the hell they are doing.Total waste of $22,000.00 and I hope they go out of business

Master Construction Alliance
We consulted with Master Construction Alliance on a project for approximately 3 months, giving the proposal of our full project at the onset. Our budget was discussed and raised at their suggestion. After investing several months' time and money in this company, they came back with a budget of well over double what we had been discussing from the beginning (i.e., our budget was $130,000; they presented us with a $280,000 project without changing the scope of the project!!). We firmly believe that the philosophy of this company is to come in with an extreme number in order to negotiate the homeowner's budget somewhere quite a bit higher than what was originally planned or budgeted. Further, we paid $1500 for renovation plans that we were never able to have delivered by them or refunded. This company is out to scam people. Would strongly recommend checking references before even beginning to consult with them.

Development & Design Concepts
DDC built our home in Cascade Falls and we absolutely loved the process & the home! They went above & beyond to make us happy and built the highest quality home we have loved in - even the home inspector told us when we recently had to sell the home that it was far superior to other homes in that price range. I highly recommend these guys!

Walnut Street Garage
We've been stationary for half an hour after a UT game. This lot is nice but if you have anywhere you need to be, it's not favorable for special event parking.

Hennekes Construction
Hennekes Construction has done some lawn care work for me as well as some work to the inside of my home. They are wonderful!!!!! I cant wait to work with the company again. I love the fact if I have an issues in the middle of the night I know that they are just a phone call away. The company treats everyone as if they are family.

Great company to deal with. They have been around for nearly 50 years - that says a lot. Trust worthy and dependable. Best prefabricated inplant office and modular clean room manufacturer.
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.
