I have seen the work of a couple builders who my dad has worked for and they are very good and have some of the best workers... Rodney Underwood, Bradley Hayes, John Ross Allen & Justin Moss. They are great people!

Be careful there is a lot of sub contractors who work for homeowners when they pull the permits because the subs don't have licence. They don't have workman's comp or general liability either I found out. One of the workers fell off the ladder and now are suing me. I thought the building department made them get insurance to work. I asked and was provided a workman's comp policy but come to find out it expired three months ago.
Anyone got any suggestions?

Why not look around developements and knock on doors? If the builder is good, the owners will either tell you or decline statement which tells itself. I know several who have picked their builders using this method. I am one of them. He has since retired so I can't recommend him to you.

I was amazed when one homeowner was telling me that she went through 3 builders. I was thinking that maybe she was the problem but I was also amazed at the number of people who told me this as well. Good luck. Obviously construction crews start and stop when they wish instead of upon finish.
are you sure

I heard Benny Barrett works some unsavory characters, does Vester ever use his help, if so I wouldnt touch them with a ten foot pole..sorry Vester, but Benny really needs to be a little more particular on who he works. Guilt by association.

You must not know much b/c he's on the job site everday working right beside the others. And when he's not he's out meeting with someone. Vester is greater builder, he has 25 plus yrs of experience just go take a look at one of the house he built and see for your self

You must be 100% full blooded Cherokee? Because all other "Americans" came from somewhere else. Besides, the "local Americans" if you can get them to work, only want to work their 40 and thats it. How do you know which Mexicans are legal or not? Many "Mexicans" were born here and work harder than the local white people. I have never had any of my Mexican help ask to be off on Fri. because they already have 40 hours. Bunch of lazy toothless hillbillys!

Sounds like you're "sour grapes"--is this first hand experience?
I have never heard a negative thing, only good about Mr. Hayes.

Trust is the main factor and it also depends on what price range or finishes you desire. I highly recommend Rodney Underwood. He is the most honest builder around and his crew is very talented.
