We received a recommendation from a local realtor. After getting a few bids we choose Affordable. We are extremely happy with them. They did what they said they would do when they said they would do it. I would use them again and would highly recommend them. The garage turned out great..passed inspection..no negatives at all.
Can you imagine your doctor screaming at you because she can't take your pulse or your accountant screaming at you because he can't submit your taxes? It sounds absurd, doesn't it?
Well if you plan on doing business with Affordable Garages be prepared for a screaming match because of their inability to complete the build-out of your garage.
This is the first review I have ever written in my life, but Affordable Garages was the worst experience of my life.
Worst experience ever – DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY. They are way more concerned about the check than doing a quality job for the homeowner. Like similar reviewers of this company, this job took over double the time they originally quoted me. The owner is a complete schyster and does not understand the basics of project management. He relies on everyone else to do it for him. He will tell you what you want to hear, will repeatedly lie and will only follow up when asked over and over. It became painfully obvious to me that he was far more focused on running his 3-4 other companies than doing a quality job on my garage. For example, he originally quoted me $2k to insulate & hang drywall. After his subs had already started the work, he called to say "just kidding, it is going to be $3400 ADDITIONAL", for a total of $5400 for the work!!! Then he refused to negotiate on the price even when it was his mistake. Adding further insult to injury, he showed up at the job before the drywall was done and demanded to be paid in full. Not to mention it was hung incorrectly without any drywall shims and has been cracking ever since. Of course, I have yet to see any warranty documentation, probably because there is none. His subs however are good guys. I should know since I got to know them quite well as I was in effect running this job. If you are not prepared to get in a shouting match every time you see this owner (which is only when he wants a check), and you are prepared to hand over an incredible amount of your hard earned money before you are satisfied with the job, than go with this company. However if you value your sanity, your time and your money, please look elsewhere. There are plenty of other quality garage companies that will care about your satisfaction. This one obviously does not, and will threaten and intimidate you repeatedly for a check without finishing the work to the your satisfaction.
Do Not Use!! – Affordable Garages is poor at understanding and paying attention to the finer details of construction, in addition to understanding basic project planning. This lacking attention invariably resulted in my garage project to derail.
I highly recommend these guys – I live in Arvada and had a garage built by Affordable Garages this past summer. I was looking for regular 2 car garage because of my budget. After speaking with salesman and going over prices, I was pleasantly supprised to find out I could get a over sized 2 car and still stay within my budget. The job started within 4 days of signing the contract and took less than 4 weeks to finish. I would have expected something like this to take well over 2 months. Everyone that can out to do work was very nice and was easy to talk to. I have and will continue to recommend them to all of my friends ans family. If you are looking to build a garage I would say call Affordable Garages first, it could be your only call.
Great Experience – I was so happy with the service I received. When I called, I spoke to an actual person right away. They were helpful and got me in contact with a salesman right away. He was able to come out that day and give me an estimate on what I needed, which was lower than the others I got. They started working immediately, and were very flexable with my schedule (which as a single, working mom isn't always easy to do). They listened to what I wanted, and gave me good feedback and other ideas I hadn't thought of. They were done within the time they had given, and I couldn't be happier with my results. Definitely will be recommending to all my friends!
Don't Use this Company – We used Affordable Garages for our garage project and were frustrated by the service we received. The project took a month longer than we were initially told that it would. When we called to inquire as to why it was not moving along we were met with rudeness and arrogance and never an apology or explanation. Once the plywood was on for the roof they waited a week to put on the roofing paper and shingles. My husband had to call them as he saw an approaching afternoon rain storm and someone rushed over to put up some roofing paper before the rain started and warped the bare plywood. Most frustratingly, at the end of the project they stuck us with a large unexpected additional bill and were not willing to negotiate.
When doing a big project you like to give your money to people who you respect and want to see succeed. I do not feel happy that our hard earned money went to this company and specifically to its owners.
You may find competitors to be slightly more expensive, but paying more would be worth not having to deal with these people.
