"I would like to note to anyone in search of or planning to build a new home, that you cannot go wrong choosing this company to do the work. From the first day meeting with Mr. Vic to the closing, it was a painless and stress less build. The crew that was assigned to our build were awesome and I want to personally thank each and everyone for the wonderful job that was done.

Mr. Johan MacKay was our project manager and couldn't ask for a better person. He kept us up to date with everything, always hearing us out and seeing to that we were always 110% satisfied and aware of what was going on at all times. A lot of times going out of his way to accommodate us. I also met with Mr. Steve Melancon another A+ gentleman, did excellent work and we had a great conversation (will never forget that day)

I feel like I made some great friends for life. Mr Jared (plumbing) also went out of his way to see that we were happy with the outcome of work he did. It was definitely a fun experience and I highly recommend Manuel Builders for anyone out there in the market to build.

Awesome crew, great time, always concerned that the main goal was all about us and what we wanted. Thank you all for the fun and relaxing experience."

"Please accept this note as thanks for the great effort your organization put forth in the construction of my daughter's new home in Scott. As you are aware, her house had many custom aspects to it, so clearly it took a special effort to turn her dream into reality. Overall, our "new home experience" was very positive. I won't try to list all that brings me to this statement, however, the following are a couple of highlights:

1. Your in-house team was able to transform very rough ideas into a full architectural design. Early on, I became comfortable that you had the technical strength needed to handle all the structural and code matters.

2. Being an engineer, I had interest in some construction items that I felt would add value to her project, without adding undue cost. You were willing to estimate these, and to build whatever I wanted on that list. As a result, for approximately 2% incremental cost, I was able to get a full page of "specials" that I wanted. These ranged from tighter spacing on the basic structural--studs, joists, rafters, to sheathing behind all sheet rock, to plywood flooring in all useable attic storage areas (probably the most value-added extra of the list), to stub-outs on electrical and plumbing for possible future needs, etc. What we added is not the important topic--it is instead the fact that you worked with us to customize this house as we desired.

3. We received much guidance and support from your office staff in selecting and specifying all of the interior aspects of the home--room by room. It's clear that she was given much freedom to venture into selections that might not be mainstream.

4. We did not really know what to expect when construction began, thus I had a sharp focus on how the basic structure was assembled--how all was nailed, leveled and squared, braced etc. By personal observation, your framing crew exceeded my expectations. I'm comfortable with what is behind the walls--certainly no skimping on nails and fasteners.

5. You set an overall construction schedule, and met that schedule, month by month. Final completion was on schedule.

6. Remarkably this entire project was completed with only a single change order--Leah added a small utility cabinet. The project cost came in at less than 2 tenths of a percentage (0.2%) above original contract amount (100.2% of contact amount). Obviously this made the bank happy. It takes good core knowledge of the basic business and detailing planning for this to come about on a job of this sort.

I'll just summarize our experience as "great customer support, good quality construction, excellent budget control, superior overall value". Please pass along our note of appreciation for all at Manuel who touched this job. Also, feel free to use this note as a letter of recommendation for anyone considering Manuel Builders for their new home."--Albarado

A few months ago my wife and I chose Manuel Builders to construct our new home after a lengthy period of "just looking". Coincidentally, some good friends of ours also decided to build a new home at the same time. However, they chose another locally known builder. Each of our builders began construction at the same time. After a few months went by my friend called and asked me how everything was going with our build to which I replied, "Everything has been great so far, how about you?" He informed me that their experience had been disappointing. They seemed to be constantly having one issue or another. It was so bad at one point that his wife was literally in tears fue to their frustration.
After a couple more months went by, Manuel Builders completed our constrction ahead of projected time and we were very excited to be closing and moving into our new home. Unfortunately, our friends are still dealing with problems and their builder appears to be several more months from being finished.
Therefore, we would like to thank you Manuel Builders for making the home build and purchase a very pleasurable and memorable experience. We will always think and speak highly of Manuel Builders and will recommend you to anyone who is considering building a new home.
"Thank you" Manuel Builders, we LOVE our new home!
