We hired DDB Group to build us our dream home thinking after almost a year of research we had found the right company - big mistake!! Not only did the contractor/owner Doug Barber AND his crew disappear without completing the project, he left with an advance of cash (work not completed), unpaid workers, a concrete company threatening to put a lien on our home for non-payment, and many framing errors that we had to pay extra for to hire a new crew to complete the work. We found out he was not paying his tradesmen and owes them thousands of dollars in back-pay and that there are many other families who had hired him and are now in the same boat. Do yourself a favor and stay away from him. No ethics and fraudulent behaviour.
Hired Doug Barber (DDB Group) to build our cottage for us July 2013. The job was to begin in November 2013, did not start until June 2013. Timelines were never met and job estimates were very under quoted. Unfortunately our project did not get completed as he did not pay his workers although we paid him for all jobs completed as stated on our contract. Our deposit is still outstanding for work that was never done. A very bad experience, nightmare.

Complaint: My small construction company completed extensive amount of work for Doug Barber and got totally ripped off. He did this to me in the worst possible time ever,so I took him to small claims court,was awarded less than half ($17000) and didn't get a dime of that either. He's a church going,family man who you would never expect that from. I know I'm not the only one,there is a long list of people like me. STAY AWAY FOR DOUG BARBER HE WILL RIP YOU OFF GUARANTEED! And his customer who's cottage he built in Huntsville on the water is just as bad or worse,they were doing this together knowing well the whole time they weren't going to pay anyone. Just stay away from him!
