Does anyone know what kind of contractor Willis Martin is? Does he do a good job and is he honest?

RUN!!! As fast as you can! He is terrible. If you want to be over budget, over schedule and left holding the bag, he is the man for you. It hasn't been long ago he left one young couple in a mess. He didn't even finish the house after they had paid him the entire price(PLUS) he had bid.

I have some friends that had their house built by Mr. Martin and it was an excellent job and quality construction. He did a good job. I don't know what the other person that posted is talking about. They most be a contractor themselves trying to run someone else down to get good business.

Well, I am not a contractor, but do know about this situation. He is not someone that I would hire to build.

Well I'm not a contractor, but I did sleep at a holiday inn last night. I'll do the job.

Your friend is lucky. The young couple he built a house for on Shelbyville Rd. was not so lucky.

Do NOT use Willis Martin!!!! He is a crook! I would have to agree with souknow, he screwed that couple out of ALOT of money! He drug his feet, taking too long to build the house and went way over budget. Unfortunately, they made the mistake of trusting him. He claims to be a "good Christian man". If a person has to tell you they are, chances are, that person is not! So, my advice to you.....use a different contractor!

I heard about that situation. Apparently, that couple wasn't the only people he has screwed out of money. I've heard of several other people he has done it to. Crooked man. He gets audited by IRS all the time. So, something just isn't right with the way he does things. Personally, I wouldn't use him. Too many stories of him screwing people over....has to be some truth to it!

He did a quality job for that young couple, he just didn't finish the job Per his quote. Ooooops he forgot to add the cost of a roof! The brick was more than double. It went on and one. He kept telling them to go to the bank and ask for more money "People do it all the time". If it hadn't been for his son, volunteering to work for free (because he knew his dad was in the wrong), the house wouldn't have been finished. Then all of a sudden Willis didn't renew his contractors license???? I am not a contractor trying to run another down. I am just trying to save someone else from all the heartache.

It is a shame that he has done this to so many people. The problem is once he gets done draining them, they have no money left
to take him to court to try to recovery some of their money!!!
I wouldn't trust him in an sh*$house with a muzzle on.
