Ubuilt (Robert Raditz - in Greenville, SC) quote was lower (on paper) then conventional home builders becuase Ubuildit left items off the quote to keep their bid lower. Items that were not on the quote but clearly on the house plans.
We had a deck on our home - after construcion began I asked Ubuilt what material did he quote for decking - treated, trex, etc. Just to find out the deck was never quoted - $5,000 dollars worth - I ate that. I was given a brick allowance (set by me and Ubuildit - base on 33,000 bricks) Ubuildit use $400/M and I actually bought a $290/M brick- nearly 30% less per M. I should have seen a cost savings - right?- he agreed - but when I showed Ubuildit the actuallly costs of the brick I ended up paying over $4000 more for Brick - reason being - he did not used the $400/M allowance we agree on.
His response - "Oh well" the numbers don't lie. Well I had to eat the cost. I asked what type of shelving system I could expect in my closet during construction - you guess it - he let it off the quote. If your looking for your Ubuildit to manage you construction - forget it.
My home was spec'd for 10 ft ceilings - they had to tear off the part of the second story because the entire 1st level was framed at 9 ft - Robert Raditz at Ubuildit - never caught it- a framer on sight told him.
The list goes on and on. The few times Robert Raditz did come out to the house - he would rarely take his hands out of his pockets - thsi getting anything in writting was impossilbe.
