What our Clients Are Saying
Great Experience
"We had a great experience with the entire Lagniappe Builders team. They were led by Stephen Chuilli who offered a competitive price and was very proactive with providing updates and scheduling throughout the process. We are very pleased with the final results and hope to use this company again for any future projects we may need."

Quality Work
"Stephen and Cory designed and built a beautiful new deck for my wife and I at our new home in the Lake Norman area. From start to finish they were easy to work with, trustworthy, cost effective and their attention to detail was on point. The quality of their work was amazing and we are so pleased with our decision to use Lagniappe Builders. We would absolutely do so again and highly recommend their services!"

"Stephen and his team were AMAZING! It is hard to put into words how happy we are with this company. Not only being a first time homebuyer but also a first time renovator Lagniappe Builders could not have made the process easier! We were on a very tight deadline moving out of our rental and the renovations were completed exactly when Stephen promised. When we told friends and family that we wanted to renovate a "fixer upper" everyone tried to talk us out of it! We were told horror stories after horror stories about contractors in the Charlotte area, thankfully Lagniappe Builders were very different.

From the first time we meet Stephen and did an initial walk through I knew this would not be the case. He was so detail orientated when putting together our bid in terms of asking what finishes we wanted, specifics on cabinet layout, etc that the bid came in in exactly what it ended up costing us. This I have been told is very far from the case with most contractors. The process could not have been better and the results are stunning. We have already recommended Stephen to family friends who immediately hired him and are just as happy. I would do 10 more houses with this team, and plan to use them for all future jobs! Thank you Lagniappe Builders our first home would not have been the same without yall!"

"We have built 8 new homes and owned 14, so we have some experience. We came to Stephen and Cory with a rough plan. They helped us fine tune the plan taking into consideration cost and versus level of customization. We have been in our home for 7 weeks and have enjoyed it immensely. The true sign of success was our punch list consisted of 3 minor items. A very tough accomplishment considering the level of customization. Thank you Lagniappe Builders."

Met All Deadlines
"We were looking to build a detached pool house with a sauna on a fixed budget. Stephen worked with us diligently from designing the plans to getting through the final inspection. Stephen and Cory are both great communicators and managed to deliver on all deadlines and specifications. We also loved using their web site, BuilderTrend, that kept track of all scheduling, change orders, estimates, etc. We would gladly recommend Lagniappe Builders for either small or full scale construction projects."

Highly Recommend

"I would highly recommend Lagniappe Builders. My husband and I purchased a home in Charlotte for a flip. The process was not as simple as we had thought, after hiring two different contractors we were almost to the point where we would give up. Luckily, a friend recommended Stephen and his group, Lagniappe. Our experience drastically changed from that moment on.

Stephen was everything we had thought would not be possible to find in a contractor. He was professional, willing to go the extra mile on details and understanding of our budget. Stephen was responsible for our master addition; including an en suite, walk in closet and laundry room. He more than delivered a picturesque master retreat. We have already experienced wonderful feedback from realtors and potential buyers - to quote a realtor who recently showed our home, "no stone was left unturned." Thanks to Stephen and his team for making it all happen!"

"We found Lagniappe Builders from the Porch.com site. We were looking for a contractor for a streamline 203(k) project (which requires a lot of paperwork upfront on the contractor) which involved addressing many things in a house needing some TLC, a complete kitchen gut, and changing the home to an open concept. The service and quality of work was outstanding from the get-go. I called Stephen, and he even offered to come out the same day to do a walk through and review the project. When reviewing the project and creating the estimate, they were thorough and reasonable.

"They stayed on budget and on time. Because of the quality, staying on budget, and how quickly they were working, we added a bathroom gut and remodel as well. During the most hectic times, I daily calls from the contractor providing updates and answering any questions I had; from talking to friends, this is nearly unheard of in comparison to contractors they used in the past. We are very pleased with the finished project, and get comments that our house looks like one from a magazine. We are so lucky to find such a great contractor."

  2. Detailed work – Quality and cleanliness was of the highest standard.
  3. Scheduling – Our project was completed very close to our requested completion date.
