Default Small builder vs big builder.

Is anybody has experience with small house builder in Kingston? Like Sobella homes or Haynes Homes?
What is a good/bad compare to big builders like Tamarack, Caraco, Braebury?

We built our first home with Virgil Marques construction. Our 30-day list had one weird paint spot on it, that was it. They never did come back to fix it but considering we had zero problems in the time we lived there I'd definitely recommend them.

We would have built with them again but we wanted a two-storey and they only have one or two plans for two storey's. Marques houses are mostly simple bungalos but they sure can build a house.

I'm appreciating their skill even more now because we just moved into a Tamarack with paint spots and drywall imperfections galore. Funny, it took 3 months to build our last house and six months to build this one, but the Tamarack house is the only one to show evidence of rushing by the trades.

A friend just built with Geertsma and he's been quite pleased. It's built very much like our Marques house was - same materials/workmanship.

I haven't had much experience with Caraco but I do like some of their bigger models. They build houses amazingly fast, I've noticed that too.
