    He said this project would take two weeks. Ten months in, it still isn't completed. I was without a sink, stove, oven or kitchen cabinets for six months. Whole weeks have gone by with nobody showing up, and most of the work that has been done is shoddy and rife with "beginner" mistakes. Tools of mine--including a new chainsaw--have gone missing during the project. I've caught the company lying in attempts to cheat me as well, like when they showed up with flooring nothing like what I'd picked out, claiming that all my selections had been out of stock, and explaining they'd had to get the in-stock flooring that looked most like what I'd chosen. I called the supplier and learned that my top 3 flooring choices WERE in stock, and that coincidentally, the material Lamp had bought was the cheapest flooring that store carried, at $0.69/sq ft (the contract which I had already paid specified $2.50/sq ft). In addition, the ineptitude of most of the workers is staggering. They removed my old air/heating unit, but forgot to cap the drain line before sealing it in a new wall. Now, when I run my washing machine, water seeps out of the wall into the kitchen and laundry rooms. My new flooring is buckling and rippling from the water under it. As it stand now, Lamp is refusing to do any further work (or repair the many issues they created) until I pay for painting, work, something which was neither contracted nor authorized; in fact, it was explicitly non-authorized. From the beginning, we agreed that I would do the painting, and this is specified in the contract. On 10/8/2022, I was leaving for the office when two workers showed up. They said they were going to paint the kitchen and were just waiting for someone to bring them the paint. I told them they were not supposed to paint and even showed them the part about painting in the contract. I said, "if you guys are gonna paint, you are gonna be doing it for free, because I'm not authorizing it." They laughed and commented about how nobody communicates down there. Then, I texted Lamp's Manager and told her the same thing, that painting wasn't in the contract and that any painting they did would be for free, because I was not authorizing a change to our agreement. When I got home that night, I discovered that they had painted the kitchen with flat white ceiling paint. I've since painted over it myself, with the paint and color I was intending to use from the beginning. After a few weeks of nobody showing up, I inquired about when they'd be coming back to finish the project, and Lamp responded with a bill: $2,458 for..... you guessed it, painting. He says they will not finish the job until I pay up. This is going to end up in court. Do not let the nice website and the image they project fool you. This company is neither honest nor competent.

    Donâ t let the pretty, professional website and positive false reviews suck you in. BEWARE and DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND THOROUGH RESEARCH before even slightly considering Lamp Design and Build owned by Matthew Lamp. Ask him for LEGIT prior customers info/contact numbers & you will RUN & not look back! Im not even sure I can put the disappointment, awful work and total scam into words to describe what was done to my husband and I. We began our entire home renovation project in the beginning of 2020 and more eager and excited than one could possibly have imagined. To sum it up, his minimum - hourly waged, unskilled hired help knew how to demolish and tear things up, but none were qualified to put things back together. In fact, the only thing they were absolutely FANTASTIC about was asking for more money. Not only was the hired help not qualified to do what we contracted them to do but tools, electronics and other items were taken from our home from the various help he would send. He couldnt keep a set crew or the same people employed, as we always had different people showing up when they would show up at all. Unfortunately, we paid them in advance a lot of money and got absolutely crapped on and had to hire other contractors to finish the nightmare they created for us and the rest of the renovation. I honestly feel like I am at fault here as well for trusting a company and person to do the right thing and allowing the payments to be made for as long as we did. NOTHING WAS DONE AS CONTRACTED and we literally purchased everything for them to do this job. They came with nothing and did nothing. This was my first time and experience with a home renovation and I was completely snowballed by someone who talked but definitely could NOT deliver. The only thing we can do now is warn innocent people to be very cautious and NOT make the same mistake we made. From the electrical, plumbing, flooring, Sheetrock, painting, insulation, tile, grout, you name it - every piece of it, was done incorrectly and needed to be Re-done by someone else. Not sure they actually completed one single task from start to finish that was contracted. A living hell and nightmare that I wish we could have avoided and the costliest mistake we have ever made in our life.

    I would not even consider this company a contractor. He sent unskilled and unlicensed workers over to build an addition. He bypassed the permit office so he could use an unlicensed plumber, installed non-NEC compliant equipment, and refuses to correct any of their mistakes or refund the money paid for the work. I had to hire a plumber to finish installing valves, lavatory plumbing and install a faucet The plumber also uncovered the hot and cold pipes installed in reverse order in the shower. I also had to hire a painter to finish painting the stucco repair that has taken him 5 months. He also made a hole in the kitchen ceiling that was patched and left unpainted also. He also used 2 different vinyl colors on my patio extension. Not to mention, he started work during a severe thunderstorm and of course, the roof tarp did not hold so water poured in caused my laundry room and master closet ceiling to collapse. This place is a joke, I would not recommend them to anyone. The workers use YouTube to look up how to frame, do plumbing, and install AC. You get the drift, he hires unskilled workers that do handyman work. At this point, I have plumbing, flooring, AC, electrical, and vinyl soffit work to correct. Stay far away from them,

    They are very dependable, trustworthy company to work with. They made my life so much easier. Great work I must also add. The ladies in the office were tremendous help along the way as well. Couldn t have got the job done without them. Give them a call for all your remodeling needs, you won t be disappointed.

    A colossal disappointment. Customer service and build quality was poor. Contractor stopped work before completion and would not return our calls. We had to finish up on our own. Our project probably exceeded this contractor's capability.
