When I met Mr
During the same initial visit, when I had decided to let him do the work and he had written up a bid for the job, he told me that there was currently a good sale on the metal roofing we needed, but that it ended that same day, so it would have to be ordered immediately. He made a phone call to supposedly confirm the price and availability but needed a deposit on the materials, so I wrote him a check for $4,250. What a mistake that was! He understood that we would be out of town for 2 weeks and that we would have a friend staying at the house to care for our animals and oversee the work because we'd be completely out of touch. A few days later we went over the plan of work to add some items to the original bid. He gave me a final bid, but said he needed MORE money for materials. I was stupid enough to write him yet another check, this time for $6,000. The work was scheduled and I expected to return to find a substantial portion of it finished, or well under way at the very least. What happened was absolutely nothing. Our friend contacted him several times to set up appointments and waited for someone to arrive, but no-one ever showed up. He had one excuse after another, claiming that he thought his crew was at work here, blaming it on his "foreman" and other things. None of those things were true, since no building materials were ever delivered to our property and no-one at all came to look at the job.
When we returned from our trip and learned the whole situation, I called him and told him I wanted to see him immediately to resolve it. He apologized and made an appointment for the following day, and then called to cancel it with yet another excuse. It was now a month after I had given him advance money for the job and there was absolutely zero to show for it. I finally told him not to even bother saying he would be here to meet with me. I would hire another contractor and I wanted my money back. Once again he was full of excuses. He needed to be sure he could cancel the materials order (which was apparently never placed) and he was working hard to get caught up. More time went by with no sign of my money being returned. During the past 2 weeks we have learned that he has 4 different pages on Facebook.
I contacted the Pottawatomie Co.
The workmanship was great. Price was exactly as quoted. The job consisted of a somewhat "custom" request... installing our back entry door to open outward as opposed to inward like most entry doors. We requested this due to having our tiny laundry room having 3 doors opening into it (the garage door, back entry door, and door to the laundry room all opened into an approx 6'x5' room, causing the doors to collide and made for a cumbersome little area for doing laundry.) The overall cost of 533 included a $230 door, installation of the door itself and a doggy door we had already purchased was installed as well. Great work, great guy. We also had a quote on some other improvements that we thought about doing and we were given lots of good info to
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
