Where do I even begin…. we started our job in 2016 and three years later, we have open permits that cannot be closed because of violations, we have a non working bathroom, our floating floor nailed to the subfloor, and luckily a judgement against them. I know of several other unhappy customers so do your homework before hiring these con artist. Mike charged us for a mid priced remodel but used the cheapest Home Depot fixtures. We expected quality craftsmanship and what we got was a lot diy corner cutting. I’ve worked with many contractors and service people …. working with Dreammakers Bath and Kitchen of Lansing/ Mike Fischer Builders was hands down the worse experience of my life. To date, we’ve spent over $20k fixing his shoddy work and I’d say we’ll need to spend another $40k getting everything to code. So disappointing! And this is just the tip of the iceberg regarding our experience. During mediation, we had to hire experts to assess the flooring. His expert agreed with our expert that it was an installation fail and Mike still refused to make it right. We had to spend thousands on lawyers fees to get him to do the right thing. Now we have to spend thousands more repairing our home. Our master bathroom has to be gutted because it wasn’t sealed properly. Our tub doesn’t work because it was not installed properly. Over 2000 square feet of expensive eucalyptus flooring has to be removed because it was not acclimated or installed properly and the warranty is void because of his negligence. He didn’t finish the hvac. We found ducts that were not closed off during our hvac reconstruction, essentially we were heating the walls and basement ceiling. He left holes in our basement where they removed plumbing. There were tiling issues, pencil marks on walls, incorrect countertops installed, dented cabinets that they refaced with cheap plywood. We gave Mike close to a year to rectify before we filed suit against him.
Update #1: recently, we discovered water coming through our ceiling from our attic. We had a specialist go into the attic to see why or if we had a roof leak. Nope!!! Mike Fischer had vented our exhaust fans from our bathroom directly into the attic, not venting it through the roof and out of the house. As result, it created damage to our attic and roof. Another $30,000 repair due to mikes complete negligence and incompetence.
Please please do yourself, your home, and your money a favor and don’t hire these scammers.
