The crew was sloppy: did not clean up after themselves inside and outside. I am still finding wads of insulation strewn over my property.
The crew was never punctual. They arrived usually @ 45 minutes after the appointment times and were always in a big rush to leave, letting me know that they had bigger jobs to do elsewhere.
I caught one installer walking out of my house with one of our tools. It was returned when I said something. Then, the next day after they left, I found the same tool to be missing. My husband has a strange habit of labeling his tools with a label maker so it is hard to understand how this could be a mistake. It was returned 2 weeks later.
The crew managed to break 3 handles on 3 new windows, which had to be ordered and re-installed. The interior window frames were scratched up by the installers.
The 3 pane casement window was too big for the opening but the crew managed to squeeze it in, bending the entire frame so the windows could not be opened without real elbow grease. It was eventually replaced 5 months later (by another company)!
I was in a bit of a bind after i had to fire a contractor recommended by my designer. So, she recommended right away..
While i live on rentals that cost a fortune and finally i had live with my sisters for over a month to cut cost, i got very sick with all the moving and adjustment and stress only to find out the contractor is not on the job site. i about freaked out. I knew i had been scammed.
i finally had to hire my designer to watch after
Now come the part with the window, He doubled the price for his labor, telling me the wood work of my window was rotten to the core. He said he had to do extra work, hire an extra man who is not even a window fitter. He doubled his price for labor and he padded the window cost too. He padded eveyr thing not just 20% which usually is what contractor do, but some area, he doubled the price. He never took pictures of the "rotten window woodwork." to prove the need to charge extra.
So, after a week, he and his wife went to the Caribean for holiday on January. No wonder he had ot hire extra worker because his vacation ticket has already been paid for and he wanted to get out of the job.
One of the glass window he installed, the glass had cracked. i believe it is the way he fitted the window. He is not a window and door contractor and this type of work needs precision. Lets see how long before more cracked windows.
When i first told him the window cracked, he told me he
i read the article in Angie list. i have commited all the mistakes and every warning she gave hiring a contractor. It is me who is hte fool and believe my contractor who said he used to be a minister, thinking he will be more honest. It is my fault because i had no one to help in this project and keep watch over these workers. These people took advantage of me and has no
Near the end, I told him that i will not pay him anymore until work is done. He went beserk and screamed and threatened to not get my renovation inspected. I was sick at that time and was also scammed by an apartment rental agency out of $2500 and i had to live with relatives and then turned around and found out this man is not even in the apartment working. So everyone go around freaking out. But who is at fault?
The bathroom has to be repainted because he only put one coat and tried to make me pay a painter to repaint over it when my designer complained. I refused, The white grout in the white marble floor and shower floor was filthy because he did not protect the floor and he expect me to have a new bathroom with filthy floor and even complained that i just nitpick. Where is the standard, pride of this man. of his work, or what a beautiful bathroom should be new and clean for someone who paid a lot for it.
It is over and call me the fool. i agree i am.
I will definitely be calling him again when spring comes to do some more work for us.
We had a design for our project and we received several estimates from different providers. From the outset, came in somewhere in the middle of the price ranges, but he provided more work. Most importantly, he took his time and inspected our property thoroughly. He spent about 5 hours with us before we had paid him anything and he went over each piece of the project. We looked at all of the contingencies for different aspects of the work. This allowed him to stay right on his estimate! This was hugely important for us, as the project was near the top of our budget.
Once the work commenced,
The only con I can think of is minor. I would say
We already have a few things in mind that we can't wait to bring
Before I started the process I was very nervous I was not going to be able to get everything done but
I would recommend
