I'm not sure what you (the judge) have had done but I think you are related to the only 2 contractors that you requested. You sure have a long list of bad ones. Maybe you are a difficult customer.I have had work done by Creative Concrete on 2 separate projects (garage and then a driveway 65x14). Very, very happy with both. I would recommend them to anyone.
Let's just say I'm in a position where I know these people and the work they do...Also keep in mind that a "good contractor" does not do only good work he also runs a good business. Several of these people have ran up debts and charge accounts and screwed local businesses over. Several are crooks. Several do shotty work. Let's just leave it at that....Like I said I'm in a position where I see the good and bad of all kinds of folks. No I'm not related to the two people I recommended. I highly doubt the two guys even know each other considering one lives in Limestone and the other in South Greene. Must I remind you that this thread was started by someone who wanted to know who to stay away from, not who to recommend that does good work...which is why I put up the list of bad guys. However I have said good things about several other builders, just read the rest of my posts.

On Larry Rowe aka Creative Concrete....
Ask the new Dunkin Doughnuts how their concrete turned out...better than that, go there and see the parking lot for yourself.

Ask some of the local businesses that deal with contractors if he has good credit with them and if they would recommend him for anything.

Don't take it from me, take it from them. I'm glad you've had good experiences with him, your lucky.

Contrary to what the previous responding poster had to say, I suggest you stay clear of anything Mr Wiggin had any part in constructing; actually destructing is a better word poor workmanship, shoddy low grade materials and components.I will be filing a grievance with the TN States Attorney General. Wish I dared tell you my name so you could come see for yourself. Sure I am angry but not without good reason.- mostly inept, unqualified or unlicensed subcontractors.

Don Wiggin and his sons are good builders. They are very hard working group, they don't drag their feet. When they built my house, they came earlier and worked late.
For the price I paid I am VERY HAPPY. I wanted everything on 1 level, two car garage drive, laundry on main level plus I have a full size basement with two car garage. Nearly 1,700 sq feet finished up stairs.
Back when I built in 2006 on Sugar Bowl Rd. the type of house I wanted(that I have now)I was quoted way of 235,000 by other builders (that was me owning the land!!) So I went with David Shelton Builders and did a split foyer with basement (no main level drive in garage only basement) and I hated the STEPS.. but my current house described above was the same price as the one David Shelton builders built back in 2006!
So do check around...make sure everything is in your contract!

I agree with unqualified and inept but uninsured.?? Well seems to me there are a lot of one's that are so called licensed that cannot build. Just because you can build it on paper or in a book does not make one a builder. I'd two times rather have someone that has learned a trade hands on than to have a pencil pusher that passed an exam to get some kind of credentials that says he/she is a contractor.

I don't think the plumber was properly licensed and created a number of problems such as cold water lines to what should have been hot water. A level seemed to be "a foreign object" Walls OUT OF PLUMB. After only three years the roof underlayment is delaminating; and that in spite of an attic vent fan installed two yeas ago to avoid extreme attic space temperatures - obviously low if not no quality materials. Foundation blocks are lowest grade; concrete driveway, porch, and walkway all cracking, splitting,or flaking. And the one that cost me $6,00.00 last year - improper backfilling,rain drains run off and site grading that allowed rain- water to run under the garage slab to flood the crawl space. I had to have french drains installed around the inside foundation foundation run to a sump pump to dry the crawl space and to have lines installed to effectively handle runoff from the house and exterior "low spots" on the property etc. Mr. Wiggin looked me in the eye a couple years ago and told me "you got what you paid for" which I have learned really interprets to " I screwed you over" but good.; I have since spoken with at least two other owners of "Wiggin Built" houses who tell similar horror stories! So, I say to the individual that posted his favorable comments about Wiggin" Did you too get what you paid for? Or haven't the problems become obvious yet?

Ok, I Must admitt. My water lines in the bathrooms are backwards..you have to turn it to cold to get hot. And I have had an issue with the blocks in the basement (around the upstairs drive in garage)cracking..and I understand the "foreign object"-Level...So maybe I too got what I paid for...I would like to speak more in detail of what I need to have checked/or be looking for. You can find me on FB- Lisa Gunter Weems, if you don't mind. I just assumed the guy from the loan place that came and checked..made sure everything was good. Now I am starting to worry..since I am a single female

Dave Wilds is the top man in this town for Concrete. I guess it's to each their own. The guy has a good track record and his work is second to no one's.

More Info,

The guy that comes out to give you money from your loan all he does is check the amount of work that is done. This is why there was a big push for getting the international building code passed. To run out the builders who just wanna get there money. Plus you probably just had a spec house built meaning you pay $150,000 for someone to come in a throw some 2x4s up and drywall up. There are some great builders here but also ones you want to avoid. Also Burned Consumer, Concrete gets hard and cracks. Block is Block!

I understand things will crack to some degree but when should someone be concerned??

Well when your concrete is breaking up in areas and cracks everywhere you should be concerned; other then that a crack every 20 ft or so is understandable.
