Residential Architect Online - 2005 - Grand Award House in the Blue Mountians, Eastern PA

Stone World "House in the Blue Mountains" - January 25, 2006 - Article



We are now in our new home for about 6 months. we are still in the process of painting it. There are two rooms and the garage that still need to be painted. The rest of the house is painted and it looks really great. The sheetrock spackle job and wood trim was first rate and makes for a nice finished look to each room. The quality hardwood flooring job also adds to the appearance.

I noticed the use of quality materials and contractors from the very beginning of construction. It began with the poured concrete foundation and straight, high quality framing lumber. It continued to the end with the care taken by your finishing carpenters on the window and door trim. I'm sure the stair and balcony railings and balusters with all the angles were a real challenge to get just right. Each operation was completed the way you said it would be done and in the time estimated.

It was a very rainy August this year with flooding allover northeast Pennsylvania and we were very pleased that the French drain around the foundation appeared to work just as designed and had water coming from the discharge piping. Our cellar stayed completely dry and has not been the least bit damp.

We have spoken with several other people who have built new homes and heard the stories about their builders and how disappointed they were. We have then told them about how pleased we were with Curtis J. Bailey Builders. We can't believe our good fortune to have selected your company to build our home. Thank you for a wonderful home and a job well done.

We wanted to say thank you to you all for the great job you did in building our house. Everything is top quality. The workmanship we see in this house is top of the line when we compare it to non-Bailey homes.

We want to thank you for all your patience you showed us as we went through the building process. Everyone; including the office personnel, carpenters, contractors, and especially Curtis, always listened to our questions and problems and always responded promptly.

Thank you for building our home that we will enjoy the rest of our lives.

Raymond and Elaine S., Lehighton, PA

We just wanted to drop you a line to let you both know how pleased we are with our new home. Last week we had an open house for our family and close friends. The quality of your construction was the main topic of conversation; which says a lot because most of our guests were, themselves, tradesman (carpenters, cabinet makers, electricials, etc.).

For many years we have heard horror stories about builders who take advantage of the clients at their most vulnerable time. This was definitely not the case with Curtis J. Bailey, Inc. From our first meeting with Curt (who met with us on our schedule, not his) we left the meeting both saying this man is someone special. You filled us both with confidence in yourself and your company. The subsequent dealings we had with Kevin were equally enjoyable. Both of you should be proud of your company and all personnel from your pleasant and knowledgeable office staff to your talented craftsmen. We would definietly, highly recommend Curtis J. Bailey, Inc. to anyone who is building a new home or who needs remodeling done. You are both living proof that there are quality peiple who still build a quality product.

Kevin & Pat C., Andreas, PA



I would be remiss if I did not comment on my experience with your company.

As you know, your company recently replaced a roof on my home. All the men were very polite and worked diligently to get the work done before an on-coming storm.

Even though the work performed created quite a mess, the premises were left in a clean and orderly manner.

Thank you very much for your attention in sending me a first class team!

We are very pleased with our new deck. Both the quality and workmanship exceeded our expectations. The three-man crew finished the project in a timely manner despite some inclement weather. They were punctual, coridial, professional, and addressed all of our questions and needs.

From the initial detailed proposal to the final product, we are extremely satisfied and look forward to many years of enjoyment on the back deck --- Thank You!
