It is with great enthusiasm that I write this review on behalf of Life Liberty Builders. James Crossley has restored my faith in Contractors. He was honorable from start to finish in my structural foundation repair. He submitted his proposal in a timely manner and answered any questions I had. His crew showed up on time throughout the project and went straight to work. It was obvious his Crew Members were highly skilled and experienced in the craft of mixing and installing concrete footings, structural framing, window installation and the mortar finish to my wall is superb. There were no unexpected additional chargers and the project was completed in a timely manner. As a senior citizen, I had lost all hope of repairing my home at an affordable rate but Jim has given me back that hope. I highly recommend Life Liberty Builders to anyone seeking to make home improvements especially seniors. I will definitely be pursuing their expertise’s for my next home repair very shortly. Sincerely, Lois Chambers

response time was excellent; work was completed the same day; cleanup was good; price was high but I accepted it because the deck being demolished was in a dangerous condition

My husband Got a great job in Philadelphia, so we had to find a home. But everything was so expensive. So we looked for a handyman special property. Doing that from Massachusetts was difficult, or so we thought. James of life liberty builders, we contacted he actually looked at multiple properties for us, sent feedback at no cost. Eventually we found a great home that needed allot of work. Including an addition that would be my hubbys office. Lifelibertybuilders did the remodel and addition in 2 weeks under his quoted finish date. And it was perfect. THEN because of how easy he made it we actually out of nowhere decided to try and do some fix and flips. We loved the TV shows abt flipping and allways dreamed of doing it. He made us feel like we could. Now we are 2/3 through our first investment property and we will actually rent it out! Not 1 cent over budget thus far, besides an unforseen roof repair but James actually did the repair at cost. 5 stars all day. As much as we want James all to ourselves lol, definitely hire him if you need anything done that has to do with remodeling or new construction. We saw some of his new homes when we met him, unbelievable.

United States Army Corps of Engineers (SAPPER) IRAQ, combat veteran, service Disabled veteran (veteran owned business) also should relate to our (honestly, integrity, and honor) I was a leader of Soldiers through battle. .. OSHA CERTIFIED 30 our course in construction saftey. And (Project management)

For new construction, a project will cost about $100 per sq ft, depending mostly on Finnish chosen by owner/client. For additions/rehabs etc.. Construction work and home remodeling there are many variables, and the best bet is to have us look at it. Normally the same day we can have a quote to our clients.

After I was Honorably Discharged from the Army, I was looking for a leadership position within a construction company. That is exactly what I aquired. Because of my Army leadership experience, I was hired as a Project Manager for what was at the time, a new and small scale Builder. I quickly took it on and loved it, became the best at it to the point my owners learned from me on many things. I grew to a point I could no longer grow in the company and left to start on my own, but not after helping to make them one of the biggest Builders in Philadelphia. I have built many new homes/rehabs. My greatest challenge was building at the same time 13 multifamily homes all over Philadelphia. I learned a great work ethic through the experience.

Investors, home owners, new home owners/buyers, real estate companies, architects, engineers, and have even been hired as an expert witness in a court case.

Have a connection, and similar philosophy as him/her. Makes it much easier to have a transparent project that comes out as you hoped or better.

What are their main goals for the project, what does the future hold, and how will it be affected by the project.
