But I see it every day. I try to do business with quality materials and workmanship, but few people want to pay for it. Mostly, people are making their decisions based solely on price. I don't know the contractors people are bashing above. And don't defend them if their work is bad. But, the "You get what you pay for" statement is absolutely true. There are plenty of good builders around. They are not usually the cheapest.

You are absolutely right. People are looking for the cheapest....so...there is a reason one builder is so much cheaper that another. Then you have the builder's that low ball an estimate to get the job then go over the original estimate.

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.
Could you give me a name of a plumber, who will do water lines and etc. That I might get? Thank you.

Well is either a good company, or should I watch out for one or both of them? I hear now, and not from this website that Limestone is being sued.???

Stay away from Dennis Black he has done so many people wrong, he needed money to keep his truck (needs truck to come finish your job he started) so paid him a little up front and he went and started anouther job never seen him again until he needed money again, wanted to finish the job for us, said he was a christan man i have never heard words like that come from a christan when we told him no way.

Brooks and Malone does crappy work. I had them to do work for me one time and it was a disaster. The Malone man was the one who did the work. Tile removed and not put back level. He had to cut out a square in the wall and used big black 3in screws to put it back, when all they had to do was push it back into place. TERRIBLE! Look at how messy the plumbing job is in the bathroom at the restaurant they own.(Ma and Pa's)

I would really like to know your name. I think it's pretty funny how your making the Malone man look like crap because he supposively done a really bad job on your tile when he doesn't even lay tile he is a plumber. Another thing the plumbing job that is done in the bathroom at Ma and Pa's has nothing to do with him because it looked like that when they bought the place and replacing all the plumbing just to make it look nice would cost more than you could imagine. Plus when your at Ma and Pa's your not there to admire the bathroom, your there to eat.He is a TERRIFIC guy and I'm sure if you ask other people that he has done work for they would tell you the same thing.

Brooks and Malone work on all of our commercial properties and have always done all of our septic system installs and repairs. They are a #1 company in my eyes.

He had tried to correct the problem by removing the tile. When that didn't work he went to cutting a hole in the wall. Like I said the sloppiest work I have ever seen.

Do most people who do drive ways/basement floors (concrete) use reinforcing steel for support?

Did you call them and complain before bashing them on here? IF your not happy with their work you should tell them and not the people here so they can have a chance to come make it right. That in a whole pisses me off. Brooks and Malone is a good company. I can assure you that if you had a problem and called them back unhappy they would of made it right.
