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

He states that he is out of money because the trench took longer to dig than he expected and the materials to pour the foundation cost more than he expected. Reluctantly we gave 25% more ahead of the contracted outlined payment schedule.
Day 10-15 - NO
Day 16 - The foundation is poured but has very obvious defect. The framing did not hold the weight of the concrete and bulged and broke creating a foundation of varing width and unlevel heights. Mr. Maletokov states that it is not a huge issue that all can be corrected then the pad is poured.
