A few weeks after the project was finally complete I noticed some staining on my floor so had them come back and look. They said it was from using hairspray but in fact it was from them not sealing the floors. They still haven't fixed it. Also, when they came to look at the floor they brought me my final bill: $28,885.00!! Yep, that's double what they quoted me for. I was NEVER told I was going over budget. Not once. They thought it was funny when I called them to discuss the charges. I have not heard back from them since.

At the end of January, I had several contractors (all from Angie's List) come in and give me a quote for a half bathroom to be put in. We're talking walls, plumbing, electrical, the works. This was to be a completely new bathroom, where there was nothing previously. (the owner) came and when I was describing what I wanted done, he asked (and wrote down!) alot of questions about how I wanted things. The other contractors asked questions, BUT NO ONE TOOK NOTES. That was huge with me. He got back with me within 4 days with a quote, and we put it in writing shortly afterwards.
From start to completion, I was pleased. They paid attention to every detail.

had a team of eight guys and could have it finished in three weeks. The very
first day I received a cease and desist letter from the City because he did not
obtain the necessary permits before starting work- something he assured me he
would do. After that, I didn’t see him or his crew there for weeks. As the three
weeks were ending he requested an extension, then another, then another. It is
now week seven and he has not even completed half of the job. Also, he left a huge mess at the property
that I now need to clean up (even though he also assured me that he would keep
a clean worksite). I had an independent roofer assess the work that was done,
and he informed me that it was such a poor job, that it would need to be
completely re-done. I gave
