After looking through Angies List for General Contractors and those who did good jobs or bad jobs I found
had a very good rating on Angies List. I call them on August 31, 2012 and discussed what I was looking for and how much work was needed. They asked me to write up an estimate of the work, which I did and then go ahead and email it to them. I typed up a full list of all of the work that I needed done. I emailed it to
at their email address of EJDConstruction@ATT.Net on 9/7/2012.
I never heard a word back from them. I made one more call where I left a message and never received a return call. Since this email, I have spent $140,000 on the house and intend to spend at least $150,000 this year.

We could not get past contract negotiations with this small provider. They had a "standard form" contract which provided them with abundant protections and left the homeowner completely exposed. There were no representations that the work would be performed in a workmanlike manner, insurance (worker's comp) requirements and the contract failed to included important statutory language. This small company has 2 main employees, and they cannot keep the facts straight with regard to the job. No work on our kitchen remodel was to happen until we had confirmed DELIVERY of our cabinets. Nonetheless, this contractor expected us to
out money prior to that start (for what??). The biggest disappointment with this group was their unwillingness to even have a conversation and negotiate; "our way or the highway" was the response. I strongly caution anyone entering into negotiations to do work with this group and suggest they seek other contractors. Although personal situations should not impact a job, it did in our case as well. One of the two main people got sick and our work fell through the cracks; which also could have been a reason for their unwillingness to negotiate. Nonetheless, I have no confidence in the professional behavior of this group. Price is fine, but I like to trust the people who are going to be in my house. Oh, and here's a direct quote from this contractor - remember, they are hired to be a general contractor: "In your effort to create an ACTUAL definition you made our contract contingent on performance of others." Last time I looked, that was the whole point of a general contractor....

Curved semi-circular foundation forms distorted during the concrete pour. They backfilled and then tiled the top in the planned shape. They were constantly churning for add-on jobs (at added cost). Now the planters have deformed. Corners have fallen away. Repeated calls have produced no return calls or follow-up by

We met with
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
on our first trip to Florida the week of Oct 13th. He was to start working on our unit and have the above work completed before we returned to Florida November 29th to help finish up the job. We had ordered a new kitchen from Ikea that was delivered the day after we arrived Saturday Nov 30th.
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was to work that week beginning Monday
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
2nd. When we arrived in Florida, we were surprised and disappointed by how little he had gotten done in the month and one half. Some painting had been done, ceilings looked good, but walls were painted, not edged, all of the switch plate covers had been painted right over, not even unscrewed to paint around, the paint had been rolled right over the baseboard trim. He had done a little of the plaster work, but clearly hadn't spent much time on it, probably one plaster applications, and it was far from finished. The carpet and pad had been removed in the bedroom, and carpet was removed in the living area. None of the nails or wood carpet strips had been removed. The old kitchen and furniture had been removed, but the old water heater was still hooked up and there was no sign of the new water heater. We were billed on 11/08/2013 $1384.00 for work and materials, we paid
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
upon receipt of his bill. Of the $1384.00 billed, $1046.00 was charged for a new hot water heater, copper pipes & connectors, shut off valves, wire, breakers, and conduit all of this we were unable to find on site. We were not too worried, assuming he would bring them in on Monday, our scheduled appointment, to help us install the kitchen, and to finish the project. He did't show up Monday morning as we expected him, he called us at 11am and said he had a Veterinarian emergency, and that he would call us later that day to give us an update. We never heard from him again. We made attempts to reach him that night, Tuesday morning and again on Wednesday morning but these phone calls went unanswered and our messages went unreturned. With a December 8th rental commitment looming,(Mr.
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was aware of this time frame), we were given no choices but to try and put this condo together ourselves. When we returned to MN we emailed him requesting reimbursement for billed materials that were not provided but got no response. With few options leftwe contacted a lawyer and sent him a demand letter. To our surprise he called, very unhappy, and proceeded to accuse us of delaying the project because we purchased the kitchen cabinets on line instead of wiring him the money. He went on to say we owed him more money that he had not yet invoiced us for.

IT WENT HORRIBLE - THIS IS THE WORST COMPANY IN MY OPINION AND EXPERIENCE
Upon hiring the company, they requested a large upfront fee of 6K which I believed was to be used for buying material for the project (it wasn't, apparently that was part of the only work they did do??), I thought I was then paying for the work as it progressed in phases and it was supposed to be completed in approximately 2 months time. RCG did the highest paying jobs first, though that was not the order they were in on the contract, they also did not do the work properly (I have pictures to prove this) and they are walking away from the contract stating I broke contact by canceling a check - (this will be explained later). I am now left with half a house unusable, I can't hire another contractor, they want to bid on the entire job per plans, and don't want to trust the work that RCG did; I have already given RCG 1/2 the money but only 1/6 of the work completed (Yes I should have known better, but Mr.
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
seemed legit, I even found him on the BBB website). Problems started with rough plumbing taking 4 to 5 weeks to complete and failing inspection over 4 times, I was told they should be done in 1-2 weeks with rough plumbing. I paid for this phase thinking they had done the work properly (somehow it passed inspection), but after looking closely I later found out they made major mistakes (drains don't connect or line up to vent, don't fit inside wall frame, toilet drain is not adequately spaced from the framing (12"), etc). This phase was also to be preparation for the microlam beam however this is not completed either since the walls are not completed and support beams are not in place, yet they accepted payment. After rough plumbing and microlam "preparation" they poured the driveway and patio but the driveway has not passed inspection even though Mr.
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
took payment (I did not know we did not pass and Mr.
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
requested payment, I later found out about the inspection failing). I trusted in Mr.
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to be honest about the work, he was hardly on site, and even lied about things so he could leave the job site. He sent some workers to do framing and they didn't line up the framing correctly or space the stud correctly (studs should be tight to the floor framing and were not and framing should not have gaps, yet theirs did). Around the time the job was to be completed Mr.
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
said he would need an additional month to finish the job, he said he would ensure his workers were there everyday as expected and getting the work done, yet when I left to go on vacation for 2 weeks I returned and NOTHING had been done, he had promised to take pictures of the progress and email them to me, I never received an email. After not doing any work for over 2 weeks, RCG was able to do the majority of the block work they said would take at least 1 week to do in 2 days time. However the work they did was not properly done in several areas, which again I have pictures to prove, mortar is missing in some of the blocks leaving gaps, not all of the blocks are level and straight, or line up with each other, and some of the blocks have cracks in them. He also did not do a corner block as I had requested and he had originally agreed to do, he just covered the crack and this is a load bearing corner. There is more but this should be enough for you to get the picture. Lastly I gave RCG a check early because his lead begged me to, stating that the other workers would not get paid if I didn't and they have families to provide for, and I am a nice guy so I gave them a partial check. Once I cut the check (on a Friday) the workers for RCG look like they dropped everything and left for the weekend, they even did not finish making lines on a block wall that they had started and allowed the stucco to dry, and left the yard a mess, instead of working an extra hour or two. The following Monday, RCG's lead became confrontational with me and acted at one point as if he wanted to get in to a physical altercation by stepping towards me with a balled fist, I then canceled the check and requested a new lead which Mr.
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
refused. He then proceeded to lawyer up.
BUYER BEWARE OF THIS ONE!

THE GUY DOESN'T KNOW BETWEEN HIS RIGHT TO LEFT !!!! AGGREVATION WILL BE THE RIGHT WORD TO USE.
The owner sub contracting the jobs he gets , he never answer his calls and when he call back or text , he does it in wired hours of the day like 2:00am 6:00am or 10:30pm. Only when it is money talk he call during businesses hours.
I had to work directly with the sub contractor, he didn't even know what was the agreement I had with the owner. I had to PROOF AND PROVIDE to him the list that the owner of the company got and agreed too.
The sub contractor did a decent job but with a company that sub contracting their jobs, you never know who you will get!!!!
The sub Contractor in some point didn't want to show up because he didn't get paid from the owner of the company even after 2/3 of the job was already paid to the owner BY ME, I had to convince him to show up to finish the work.
FIVE DAYS AFTER WORK WAS DONE AND ALL CHECHKS PAID, I GET TEXT 6:00 AM TELLING ME HE WILL PUT A
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
ON MY HOUSE...I GOT REAL MAD! HE NEVER KNOWS WHATS GOING ON IN HIS BUSNISSES AND SEND ME THREATHS EVEN AFTER EVERYTHING WAS PAID WHEN THE WORK WAS COMPLETED.

I KEEP ASKING HIM FOR THE INVOICE SINCE WE START WORKING TOGHTHER AND I AM STIL WAING FOR THE LAST 3 WEEKS.
don't USE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We recently moved into a home that requires quite a bit of renovation. As such, we have had many contractors and services providers over the last 6+ months. Of all the people who have done work for us,
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
(
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
&
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
) have been by far the best. From the initial referral/contact with them, they have been extremely responsive, prompt, honest, detail-oriented and professional. Specifically, the job involved installing a ceiling/floor to the front entry way of our home (to create a functional space on the 2nd floor of our home.) The work they did was beautiful and it came out even better than we expected. Throughout the duration of the project,
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave us daily updates and completed the work well within the time promised. In addition, while working in our home, they were extremely neat and tidy and we never felt any intrusion although they were working all day in our living space. I am, overall, extremely happy with
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and all aspects of the work they did... and I am already looking into having them begin the next project in our home. I HIGHLY recommend them!

A NEVER ENDING NIGHTMARE - SAVE YOURSELF A LOT OF FRUSTRATION AND FIND A RELIABLE CONTRACTOR!!
On 10/7/13, the design plans for my kitchen were finalized and approved. That same day,
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
told me he thought the job would be completed in two weeks. On 10/8, my existing kitchen was demolitioned. It has now been 11 weeks and I still don't have a functioning kitchen. I've done nothing short of beg
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
to finish the job, and each time he commits to a new completion date. I'm now at my wit's end - I've been lied to so many times and feel completely taken advantage of.
Day after day I've been promised that there would be a crew working at my condo all day, only to come home to the disappointing fact that nothing had been done. On the rare occasion someone did show up, the installation has been both dangerous and shoddy. For weeks, there were many jagged metal edges exposed - I told
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
it was dangerous and asked him on several occasions to address the situation. Even after I cut my arm on one of the edges he couldn't be bothered to fix the problem. The new cabinets are damaged and do not line up properly, not to mention the fact that there not the cabinets I ordered in the first place.
One of the reasons I selected
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
was because
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
showed me documentation of accreditation and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. However, I just checked bbb.org and it shows that there is no BBB rating for
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and that they're currently under review.
I really just want to have my kitchen completed and I hate feeling like I'm going to have to take legal action to make that happen.

Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave a response to my previous review, and he is absolutely correct that I did not hire him. He came over to my house to talk about the work I wanted to have done. No work was started, and his workers never did any work at my house.

As I said in my first review, he is a very articulate and professional person. I am sorry that my opinion of the company was tainted by other negative reviews on the internet, and on Google.

I was asked by Angie's List to provide a review of
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
Environmental because I got an estimate from

. Angie's List wanted me to share my reasons for not hiring
Fort Lauderdale Remodeling Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his men. So I did provide an honest review of why I could not hire them.
