I would say terrible is a pretty accurate representation of this company. They took about three times as long to complete the project, if complete is even the right word. When they left I still had to do some framing work on my own. In addition, one of the heaters was wired incorrectly, and the only response I got from the company was that they definitely wired it correctly, and if I wanted them to come back by to troubleshoot, it would be $150 per hour. So I had to rewire it myself. When it came time to pick up all the trash from the work they did, the general contractor in charge began nitpicking each piece of garbage in the pile saying it wasn't from the work they did. It was however from the work they did, and he did not know because he was not a part of the project when it started. I had to double check every single thing they did and usually had corrections to be made. I highly DO NOT recommend this company.Aug 4, 2016VerifiedJDR Builders A Design Build General Contractor's reply
Hello Miss Erin C. I am very sorry you were left with this impression of JDR Builders. I did review your file and noticed that your ADU was a garage conversion that you had originally started with your own subcontractors that performed the plumbing and some of the framing yourself or by others and we were asked to come in a help you with the completion of the conversion which we did. I also see that there was problems in getting your plumber back to the site to correct their part of the work since we did not hire them and that you had purchased the appliances and fixtures to be installed by our electrician who is licensed and bonded and we tried on several trips to look at the appliance and requested that you have your vendor look at it for proper functionality. As I recall we did remove all the dabri including added trash that was placed in the pile at no additional cost to you. I am saddened that you feel the way you do after all the work we performed to help you finish up your space after it was left abandoned by another contractor and if there is anything we can do to leave you with a better impression of our company I would be happy to do so.
I am really happy with the work, the promptness and the attitude of all the workers. The price was right nd the job got done, well.May 28, 2016Verified
Although our project is not yet complete, we have found John Rank and his team to be extremely efficient and timely, very accommodating, affordable and very professional. Its not easy to find good general contractors in this industry, but we believe we have found one. I'll make sure to post another review when our whole project is done.Oct 9, 2013Verified
