Reviewing Marra Construction of LaBelle, Florida We signed a contract with Ron Marra on January 1st 2019, and were told it would be a 9 month build. We had already designed the house ourselves, and paid him $23,000 up front to cover permitting &;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; land surveys. Two and three quarter years later we have nothing but the ICF shell (which he didnt even properly protect before piling dirt up around the base), the roof and metal studs. We even shelled out an additional $18,500+ in cash to help him move forward. And what did we get? Excuse after excuse after excuse for why he couldnt make progress and a demand for yet another $56,000 for even more! Ron told us in Oct of 2020 that the project had been under priced from the start and admitted he never really reviewed contracts before signing them. Therefore he was forced to increase our build price by 20 to 25% if we wanted it completed as contracted for. The man is a shyster, a liar and a fraud. In fact, he defrauded more than 20 couples/families over the last two years, leaving many without a home or the hard earned money they paid him. I wouldnt recommend Marra Construction or their re-branded company Florida ICF Builders, LLC to build a dog house! Subs wont work for him because he doesnt pay the people who DO work on his projects. Steer clear of Ron Marra Construction and Florida ICF Builders. Check out ALL their reviews here, on Buildzoom, and on their social media accounts. The only good reviews they have were written by employees (who no longer have jobs). Choose better choose anyone but a Marra Construction in SW Florida!
User's recommendation: Steer clear of Marra and their new dba Florida ICF Builders.
