If you hire J T don't expect him to show up with big new flashy trucks, signs, and new expensive equipment....because of this he is able to give you affordable pricing with good workmanship !
His prices are very high compared to the quality of his work. He uses inferior tools and materials and appears to lack basic construction skills and techniques such as using a level or a laser measuring tool, taking adequate measurements prior to cutting or building, etc.. I am not sure he knows how to read construction drawings. Everything he built is crooked or warped. He said I was being 'too exacting' when I pointed out his errors.
Quick to anger when confronted with his mistakes, he came up with ridiculous excuses for his inferior workmanship. A few examples include the following: 1) Veneer plywood cannot be cut without splitting the veneer; 2) The hinges were to blame for a improperly hung door that wouldn't stay open; 3) When I had to replace a new furnace filter that was full of demolition debris, he said it wasn't because he didn't cover the wall
Bottom line: If you want to overpay for less than stellar work and don't know the difference between good and poor construction, this guy's for you.
I hired this person just after I bought my house but prior to my moving in. I came to the house for the week in which the work was scheduled to be done and when I left, nothing was finished. He had a zillion excuses and although I was already concerned, I foolishly allowed him to continue with his assurance that he could finish in one more week. Three weeks later he still hadn't finished and could not tell me what he had been doing. I asked him to leave immediately.
When I moved in several weeks later, I discovered that most of the work that he had told me he had finished was never even started, e.g., patching the MBR walls, opening up the 5 DR and LR windows, repairing the 5 interior doors. The repairs to the LR plaster walls were hideous and had to be redone. (He had told me he knew how to match the surrounding wall texture perfectly but it appeared he made no attempt to do so.) He left the carpet staples in the MBR floor having told me he had removed them and had cleaned the floor. I could go on.
Bottom line on this provider: limited skills, compulsive liar, incapable of managing time, money or project resouces. Run, do not walk, away from this fellow.
