Does not follow industry standard for building on clay soil

Belmont Builders Corporation - Does not follow industry standard for building on clay soil
Driveway was built on clay soil without a proper ground preparation. The clay will settle and the concrete will crack.

User's recommendation: Your driveway will crack and they offer no warranty. Even thou it is a new construction, have the house inspected by a professional before you close.

They got me too

This started, in 2009, with needed home repairs for our home. We contacted Belmont Builders Inc. to be the contractors to do the repairs for the home. They remodel our kitchen, basement and back porch. It was done with the all cheapest material, nothing resembling the picture on their website. They somehow rebuild the whole back porch without redoing the roof of the porch. The wood is bowing, splitting and beams are not supporting the structure. What I don't understand is, how they were able to get a permit, and the structure pass an inspection. I assuming they had a permit; because they were able to get a lien against the home. In addition, the contractor, Belmont Builders, provided the financial company, Hammer Financial Corps, to get the loan. In short, the contractor gave services equivalent to the full amount of the equity loan, totaling in approximately $75,000.00; however, We never received any of the money and the contractor has a mechanic's lien on my home for unpaid services in the amount of $27,500.00 by Belmont Builders. Also, the money from the loan was all deposit into Hammer Financial Corp bank account and no money was every returned to us; however, we am still responsible for the total amount of the loan and we have been paying on this loan to the present.

Belmont Builders Inc. Chicago

Belmont Builders started my job and did not complete the work. Left the job after ruining the roof, installing skylights in wrong, improper electrical, unsafe conditions caused by this incompetent contractor. Belmont Builders did not deliver what they promised and are fraudulent contractors. In fact when they realized how badly they messed up the job, rather than fix it they just walked of the job. No warranties, no completion of what was promised...walls and ceiling open. They are scam artists...Jerry Gubin and Adam D. play games as to who is the owner of the business. In fact Adam is in debt up to his eyeballs. Do not work with this despicable company
