I hired Doyle Hargraves Construction to build an addition to my house. Pd 1\2 down and all this guy can do is show up drunk and swear at everybody. He is on his cell phone yelling at "Linda" all day long. His helper is this guy Karl, dumb as a door knob but strong as an ox. I think there might be something wrong with him.

We hired Arthur Custom Homes, todd Arthur, it was a nightmare from the get go. We hired as a general, ended up giving a downpayment, which was ok, but it was supposed to be used for work, permits, architect, etc. Ended up having guys show up at our door, asking for money, we did pay some of the subs-fully and partially, but the guy ran with our money. The subs were looking to us to pay, and we did the right thing as far as we could, but he still had some of our money. Beware, he is a nice guy, easy to talk to, sells a good pitch, also a Police Officer for Oak Forest. SCAMMER! concrete leaks, electic wasnt done right, not up to code on anything, water coming in door way....ugh what a mess.

I been known to sport a tool belt. I'm good with wood too. I once built a shed using only a saw zall, duct tape and bug spray. If I was you i'd go down to Markham courthouse and file a small claims court complaint against that piece of sh*t and get some of your money back. Also slam him on Angies list and file a BBB complaint. Next time hire the old Teabagger. I'll be at your service and bang out all my jobs real fast.

i once worked for Doyle Hargraves Construction for two weeks. Doyle screamed and threw beer bottles at his crew. One time Doyle beat up guy named Randy who did the drywall taping. Randy said he was gonna call the cops and Doyle started screaming that the law was on his side. I was scared and ran from the jobsite and Doyle chased after me in his pickup truck.

I know a great worker, if you are serious about finding someone that actually cares about people and doing the right thing. He does not screw people over....I can give you his number if you would like an estimate.

Doyle is a very sick individual. He has anger issues and likes to drink alot. He also hates midgets and antique furniture. Having said that he is good with a hammer and a jigsaw. I think he does alot od work in CR and Worth.

My landlord caught Doyle Hargraves construction fly dumping some old cabinets behind my apartment building. Doyle drove away and the guy helping him ran away across the railroad tracks. I think it was Sammy.

Doyle is at it again, we were working on a house near 108th and Oak about a week ago. When I got back from picking us up lunch I saw him shitting behind their garage and then used his bare hand to fling it over the fence. He wiped his ass with a fairplay bag.He is a disgusting individual but he pays cash. Poor old Karl was just standing there with a hammer in his hand, he looked upset.
