I cant say anything good or bad about them, I can say that the only Sand Castles I want to work with our on a beach some where.

Due Diligence

Sand Castle Field Services is based out of Brookfield WI

In the State of Wisconsin there is no registered company under the name Sand Castle Field Services.

In the State of Wisconsin there is a company called Sand Castle Investments LLC. Sand Castle Investments LLC is believed to share the same office as Sand Castle Field Services.

In the State of Wisconsin Sand Castle Field Services LLC, hold no dwelling contracting credentials under the name Sand Castle Investments LLC.

There is a company out of Antioch IL which holds a valid Wisconsin Dwelling Contractor License, but unknown if related. This company out of Illinois holds the name SANDCASTLE BUILDERS INC, in which it is hard to say they are related. It would take further research to determine.

The problem with companies that do not hold dwelling contractor certification under the State you are working in is that most times they do not understand the laws under which they operate, and many times they are not following the requirements required of the law to perform tasks.

I can tell you that in the State of Wisconsin a party that does not hold Valid Dwelling Contractor Certifications cannot legally contract / subcontract work to those whom do hold valid licenses. This does not stop those companies from subcontracting, but bottom line, within the laws they are ineligible to do so.

If you are too lazy to use the search function, I'm too lazy to answer your question. They have been discussed a few times, so look for the threads....

Stay far, far away.
35% off the top, then they "decline" about 1/2 of what's left.
We fired them as a customer about 2 months ago.
Beware.

Yea Brads const. I must be a lazy sap to want to hear about what others have to say about the co. I do my homework on ANY company that I consider working with on top of hours spent on here reading posts. Problem is, many of the posts may be out dated. A company may have been pretty decent to work with say 3 years ago but What if now they lost a couple big clients and are hurting to pay contractors by 90 days and doing shady **** to get by.

Thanks for your input either way...

Brad is right. The only reason I posted any due diligence related is because of my concerns within the State of Wisconsin, and anything I am able to do, no matter how unimportant, if it makes any impact, in any way, then I personally feel satisfied.

My Reasoning
1. I am tired of unlicensed contractors in Wisconsin.

2. I have been caused a lot of problems from unlicensed contractors in Wisconsin.

3. Unlicensed contractors in Wisconsin, especially in the property preservation field, are in my observance very predatorial in nature.

4. If I can say 1 thing, that will help a another Cheesehead reconsider working for unlicensed contractors,

5. If I can say 1 thing, that will reduce the amount of work that these unlicensed contractors are subcontracting,

6. If I can say 1 thing, that will steer those considering property preservation to at least working for a licensed contractor,

7. Then I have a sense of personal satisfaction, that whether I truly am or not, that I am being the change I wish to see in Wisconsin.

But the short answer as Brad stated is correct, I probably just have to much free time.

So, out of curiosity, why didn't you ask the posters on that thread if they had any updates on the company? Seems like those posters would be the ones with the information most pertinent to your search.
Not trying to attack you or anything, I am just curious why some members choose to ignore an existing thread reporting on a particular company in favor starting a new one on the exact same subject.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

Most of the people that responded to that thread are responding to my thread. Don't see what the big deal is starting a new thread..
