1st in 59, you are assuming that good contractors don't make mistakes. Everyone, including myself, has made a mistake at some point in time. I don't know the builder or the homeowner, but to think that someone who has been in business for a long time and gets compliments from some people, cannot make a mistake, is bad math. I'm not saying the builder did mess up this particular build, but I am saying that it is possible for even good builders to screw it up on occasion.
Everyone and I mean everyone screws up from time to time. IMO, anyone planning to build a home or hire someone for any big job should always ask references about what problems have come up and how they were resolved! Smart & gracious problem solving is the mark of a good builder, contractor, or anything for that matter.
