They had some lack of attention to detail.
Needed a small project done very quickly to accommodate a larger schedule, and Harth stepped in and did it right away.
Lovely group to work with, don’t have to worry about getting permits or hiring contractors. You can rest assured your project will come to life just as designed and with the highest quality workmanship. I will use them for any future projects as well!
I have already recommended to neighbors and coworkers
We started this process over two years before we even signed paperwork. Greg was willing to answer a million questions and come to our house multiple times to help us decide what direction made most sense and was most in line with our end goals.
The company stands by their work. They completed the work to my satisfaction. They did an excellent job.
This is the second time I've used Harth Home Services for work at my house, and they are responsive and thorough.
Our previous experience with Harth was very positive. However, in this case the Harth representative who managed our project did not seem invested in ensuring the project went smoothly. One example: When a quote from a subcontractor came back incomplete, he said to us "maybe he didn't want to bid on that part of the job," rather than getting back to the subcontractor to ask about it - which we would have expected him to do before sharing the quote with us. This sort of thing happened over and over again. It seemed to us that he felt his sole job was to assign a subcontractor and let us deal with managing the rest. While the end result was satisfactory, we were quite frustrated with how it went, and would not recommend Harth based on this job. Our dissatisfaction was mostly with this one person - others we've interacted with at Harth have been responsive and proactive. Overall, I'm on the fence as to whether to use Harth again, or recommend their services.
Harth has a 2 year warranty on all of their work; they stand behind all of the work that's contracted; this is SO important to me!
We have already been asked if we would recommend Harth Builders by another couple and have done so.
Definitely. Very professional.
Everything was done quickly, efficiently, and, I think, well but was very, very expensive. It appears that they carry a lot of overhead which, of course, gets passed on to the customer.
Harth is my first call when I have a home repair or renovation project.
We appreciate the openness to creative/wacky ideas that Harth provided during this project. No one laughed when we proposed a pool in a basement that didn't exist. Instead, they helped us make that a reality! The design of the new space, as well as the real time adjustments, were always focused on our needs and our style. We appreciate being a part of the trade team, as some activities we opted to complete ourselves. As for oversight and keeping all balls in the air, we can't say enough about the project management! The focus on quality and workmanship was ever-present. We always had peace of mind during the build and feel good that it will continue through our warranty period.
Exceptional work and couldn’t be happier with the end results. Chris tilstra was amazing and a great leader for the project. All the crews were great. Everyone was respectful of our home and just nice people.
Harth is a group of the highest quality skilled designers and builders. They are truly an “all in one” operation. They are well organized, knowledgeable, and produce some of the very best work I’ve seen in the the Philadelphia suburban area. They’re a pleasure to work with.
I thought that Harth did a great job with the design aspect of my project and I am hoping to work with Harth again for a future project.
It is expensive, and it takes a long time.
Harth is focused on large suburban projects and does those well. They are not a good fit for smaller urban renovations due to the lack of consistent oversight and deprioritization of these smaller projects.
Our renovation turned out exactly as planned with the excellent design process with Harth.
Harth is not for everyone. Nice design, high prices.
They were excellent; they were on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for, and they were very good at catching the details and changes.
Our experience with Harth was very mixed - some very good, some bad. Because of that, I don't think I would be ready to recommend to a friend without a few warnings. Our opinion is viable to change after an experience with Harth in "less precedented" times. Its hard to tell what was caused by the timing we were renovating versus Harth itself.
We are very happy with their work and service.
We are extremely happy with our kitchen.
workmanship is fine, project management a disaster
I will recommend Harth Builders because from the start they outline what they will do to complete the project, how long it will take to complete the work, they communicate with us while the work is being done and they stand behind the work they do.
The experience was painless. The contractors were reliable and pleasant. Any concerns were immediately addressed. And most importantly, I am very happy with the results
In 2020, we decided to proceed with replacing our deck and also add a patio to our backyard. We met with Harth with my rough concept, and their Design team took it from there. Beginning in January, the build team began work and got the deck under roof before the snows came. Harth worked through the weeks of bitter cold and accumulated snow and delivered a final product that exceeded our expectations.
I have been very happy with everything but consider Harth a higher end choice from a price and selections perspective. I would not recommend Harth to people looking for a basic/cost-conscience option but would highly recommended them to someone looking for best design and selections. Each of the people we have worked with were clearly engaged and experienced which is not always the case with other options. Our work wasn’t done yet so I am commenting on design and cost process only at this point.
I needed a high quality builder with the experience and resources to remove a load bearing wall and installing a metal beam to create a more open floor plan. I feel Harth Builders had the right team of designers and structural engineers to handle my project
They did very nice work, however it took a long time to complete.
My husband and I are very satisfied with the work of Harth Builders. They were a pleasure to work with, and they built us a garage which not only met, but great exceeded expectations.
When the work was done, 50% of it washed away and it took 8 weeks for them to fix the problem. They showed up the weeks later, without any contact.
Harth Builders was wonderful! We had no problems. They did everything they said they would do in the timeframe they said. They cooperated with us on every part of the project. It was a small project, but they treated it as if it were a big project.
They were fabulous from start to finish. I would recommend them to anybody.
Harth Builders had excellent, quality work! They did their best to deal with any delays in a timely fashion!
This is the second time we used them so we are very happy with them. There was one issue but it was resolved in a very professional, quick, and expedient way.
Areas Of Satisfaction - great communication - i really liked the weekly status emails.
Change Anything - Painter was pretty good. Thought he missed a few spots.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The Harth Builders' workers and designers, the cleanliness. Someone visiting during construction just mention she was impressed with how they contained the other rooms from dust.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The entire project team demonstrated the highest degree of professionalism during the entire process. On-site personnel were prompt, courteous and kept the work area (and our house) clean. Everyone was responsive whenever we had questions or concerns, and the team showed a willingness to entertain our ideas and to provide feedback/solutions.
Harth Builders is both professional and courteous. Our job was done in the time frame committed and on budget.
This was our 4th Harth Builders renovation project. We have come to expect high quality design and build; professional interactions; adherence to schedule and excellent customer service. This project did not disappoint.
Change Anything - We are very happy with the final result and would not change anything.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The partnership between the design and construction teams is excellent. No detail was overlooked. When a couple of unexpected issues arose, solutions were quickly identified.
Harth Builders was excellent to work with from our initial meeting about our project, through design and materials selection, and through the build process. The Harth staff truly worked as a team and communicated with us throughout the entire process no matter what the question or concern. We will definitely call them for our next project and would highly recommend them to others!
Change Anything - Have a second walkthrough with electrical right before they start. We had several outlets that were either missed or in the wrong place or couldn't be put where we wanted.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The design process with Cindy and Katie P. was fantastic. They were excellent at finding out our needs and designing accordingly and giving us various options to choose from. Lyndon was excellent at resolving problems before telling us about them so that when he did, he had a solution ready. Everyone at Harth was extremely caring and enjoyable to work with. The meticulous attention to detail was wonderful and provided us with a lot of confidence in Harth.
We have done several projects with Harth and have been happy each time.
Change Anything - We really can't think of anything to change.
Areas Of Satisfaction - We love how Harth plans out projects. You always know how long the project will take and what the next steps are in the project.
They are experts and did an excellent job.
Schedule - They did a great job! Weather caused by a delay in completion time.
Employees & Subcontractors - Harth Builders was professional and courteous.
Areas Of Satisfaction - The quality of Harth's workmanship was excellent! My lead carpenter, Ed, did a fantastic job and his supervisor, David Keebler, was wonderful, as well!
Overall a well executed project completed on time with minimal hassle.
Areas Of Satisfaction - Professionals. Excellent job!
