Your knowledge of every aspect of custom building makes your firm a pleasure to work with.
Yes, My wife and I are extremely happy with our home. We have lived in it for 9 months. Part of my profession is to teach around the world how to high level professionals whom already carry doctorate degrees. So, my wife and I decided to grade Arcadia. Please keep in mind, I do not give out an “A” grade for effort or a “trophy for trying”!
First of all, our house is built SOLID. Very little shifting or settling. Sounds like something obvious right? Well, not so obvious when you sit down with them and evaluate your plans on your lot. They are experienced enough to see pitfalls prior to building which helps the engineers better finalize your plans for a durable and strong finished product. Yes, I did have and independent engineer verify all their recommendations. Our personal engineer was astonished at the knowledge base of our team. GRADE – A.
Secondly, we are people who keep our word and a handshake is an honest contract. They are true to their word for sure. They were available and affable every step in the process. When problems arose, Micheal was there to resolve the situation in a professional and timely manner. We never felt a negative emotion from a subcontractor or tradesman. AJ, our foreman, was excellent at deflecting problems from the HOA to problems of subcontractors who needed to adjust or fix issues along the way. So, for keeping us free of dirt and headaches during the process, they get an A!
After closing, they still respond quickly to our calls for the few expected minor bumps which may come up. We also feel its very important they have a strong relationshipwith their subcontractors since they are expected to warranty their work. Once again,they receive top marks, an A!
Finally, In choosing a builder, We felt it was very important to choose one that wasfinancially secure. Thank god we did. We had 2 friends who lost hundreds of thousands of dollars by choosing builders with slightly better bid prices but unfortunately, they didn’t evaluate the financial situation of their builder. Here Arcadia is an A+.
Overall, they are excellent and we hope we were able to portray this to whomever is evaluating Arcadia. Remember, you do get what you pay for! Review your spec sheet carefully, Ask pricing up front and build with a reliable and professional organization. Good luck and enjoy!
