Complaint / review text:
Faith Construction Inc. Was the framing contractor hired by our GC to do the framing on our house. To say the job is poor is actually a gross understatement. Studs weren't measured correctly and not nailed tightly. These "professionals" acted like children with the nail guns — half the the nails missed the other places, such as on one window header, where 4 well-placed nails would have done the job, they slammed 16 nails into one small area. They shot nails randomly into the studs for no reason.

They didn't accurately measure the OSB board for the outside and there are gaps. Again, nails missed the studs when the OSB board was nailed on and in some places is gaping other places there are large gaps where the OSB board was cut loose and then there are places where it was cut too long and forced into place and now bows out.

There are nail holes in the middle of the OSB boards that will have to be caulked. The OSB board on the right-hand garage wall was barely hanging on; there was a space between the main part of the house and the left garage wall. The back wall in the garage was completely mis-measured and made too high, yet they forced it into place, raising those trusses and compromising the entire roof.

Despite the fact that they had a set of plans, they cut the window openings too small and the door openings too big. They did not use squares or levels to set our windows — one square was used as a shim! We now have several windows that are not level. They broke off a corner of the vinyl on one window, yet still set it.

Worst of all, they nailed the gabled end trusses to the sheet rock nailers. The trusses have a natural bow to them and this pulled up the sheet rock nailers from the wall headers leaving a large space running down either side of the house! In some places it was as much as 2 inches high! Frank Singleton, the President of Faith Construction, said the foundation was not level (it is level — we checked). To fix the problem, instead of removing the sheet rock nailers and fixing the trusses correctly, they collected scrap wood from around the site, stuck it in the spaces, and shot about 500 nails through it.

These were supposed to be professionals, yet they acted like 8-year olds with new toys when it came to those nail guns. They would even point empty guns at each other and shoot — what if there had still been a nail in there that they missed? They failed to bring all of the proper equipment to the site which forced them to cut corners (almost literally).

Our beautiful house is now a mess and this is going to cause delays for the other subs that have other work to do while a competent carpenter is brought in to correct all of the deficiences. It is hoped that this won't delay the closing of our house or we are going to incur late fees and charges!

I wouldn't let Faith Construction build a hutch for my rabbit!!
