Home Remodeling reviews in Pittsburgh
The experience turned out to be absolutely the worst remodeling nightmare I've ever experienced or can even imagine. He refused to itemize the tasks on the contracts, required a very cold work environment because he claimed to sweat profusely, sang to radio music at the top of his lungs while switching words in songs, whenever possible, to obscenities. He arrived an hour late on several occasions and left during the work day to run a personal errand . He cancelled a number of times, sometimes after his starting time, claiming health issues. After one of those cancellations, he told me that he had been so sick that he spent the entire day in bed, but he switched his story when I informed him that I had seen him in his truck a half hour before he was scheduled to be at my home on that day. His replacement story line was that he had driven about fifteen miles to someone else's home and spent the day lying, sick, on their sofa.
The work, which he anticipated would be completed in a week, stretched to a number of weeks and was still not completed. It was then interrupted by my own scheduled vacation, illness, and two sets of houseguests. Finally, he came on a weekend evening to refresh his memory on unfinished work. He sheduled that visit for 6 PM, called at 6 to say he would be 15 minutes late, and didn't arrive until 6:45. One of the outstanding tasks, which I pointed out, was painting in one bathroom; I had thought it odd that he had installed a mirror, fan, wall cabinet, door, door and window casing, baseboard and crown molding in the room before painting, but I didn't care how he worked as long as it was done, and done well. He said he would call on the following day to schedule the work for the following week. However, he called an hour after he left my home to inform me that he hates painting, doesn't paint, and has no idea why he wrote that in the contract! Then he said he decided to just walk away from the job (after I had paid him all but $100 on the contracts).
I filed a claim in district court for the outstanding work, minus the $100 not yet paid, for a total of nearly $1000 plus court costs. It is money that I can ill-afford to
The work in my home remained undone until my sister and a friend pressured me to sign up with Angie's List. I did, and I had an amazing experience. But that's a subject for another review.
