    Tom took my deposit of 4000.00 and five months later I have a few loads of dirt and he will not return any calls or emails. I recommend making sure the work has been completed prior to any exchange of money.

    Tom M. from Country Boy Builder replied to this review on August 20, 2014:

    Justin failed to mention that all the information on the property I had was wrong. And delayed the permit process. We also brought in fill dirt to properly bench his site. Since you cannot pour concrete on new disturbed soil there is a compacting process that must happened. It was justin who was getting impatient and ask us not to return. That was 3 months ago. I imagine 40 yards of unmanaged soil is a mess after the rains we have had. I am sorry it turned out that way. And since then my health has gone south and I can only hope the best for him.

    I needed about 4" cut off my bar stools so it would fit under my counter. Tom and his son came by and measured and cut my stools perfectly! Now my daughter can sit and eat in comfort 😄 Thank you Tom!

    They came out when they said on time and did a great job. They clean behind them self and left everything just perfect. I definitely recommend them and I certainly will be calling them again. On a scale of 1-10 I give them a 10!!!!! As a business owner I know the importance of doing what you say, when you say you can do it and these guys DO!!!Thank You for your great service.

    Tom and his crew did an excellent job on my roof at a very reasonable price. His quote included all the normal things that need to be done when re-roofing; new paper, flashing, vent pipes, starter shingles, etc. without the nickel and diming like all the competitors. The crew was efficient and did an excellent job cleaning up all the debris from the old shingles.

    Country Boy Builder added a "mother-in-law" suite to the back of our house. They did an excellent job - quality workmanship! They worked with us to make sure we what we wanted and helped us to make cost-saving choices - which we really appreciated! I would definitely hire them again.

    Tom is always very straightforward, timely, and competent. Always impressed with how he can approach things from a landlord perspective and be practical in his approach.

    Very fair on price, exceeds expectations, and easy to work with all around.

    I contacted Tom regarding repairing my privacy fence, erecting a shorter fence in another area and cleaning up a cluttered area in my back yard. All of those things were done within a few days and to my satisfaction. He and his employee were courteous and professional and the price was reasonable.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. I work outside the box and I am very versitile. Remodeling I would say is the most frequent. Room conversions and moving walls.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Get educated on your project, Get as many estimates as you have time for and always ask questions.
Also never pay for labor upfront.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. No real secrets. Everything relies on the integrity of the contractor and what is written down. Always be specific and put it on paper, that protects everyone. Know your contractor. This is someone that will be in your home and have access to your property. Check references and google them to see how available they are. Also Google can give you any negative information about them using their name or phone number.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. We are consistant in the work we perform.
We also serve our customers more complete.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. It is not only that I like what I do but I have a passion for what I do. This has been my motivation for over 30 years and it shows in my relationship with my customers. It shows equally the same in the quality of my work.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. How long have I been in Raleigh? 20 years. My wife and kids were born here and I originated in Texas.

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. My Mother sold real estate for years and I helped her at an early age. I was also really good at tearing things apart so I had to learn to put them back together.

Q. Describe your most recent project, what it involved, how much it cost, and how long it took.

A. We just completed a 14x18 screened in porch. The total cost was 8,900.00 . It took us 10 days to complete. You can see it on face book @ nc country boy builders. You may also see many others.

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?

A. Be honest , not just with the customer but to youself. It is easy to get overloaded especially if you do good work. Sometimes you have to tell people you just can't do it at this time. They would rather hear that than excuses of why you did not show up.
