I would hope this information will help to keep others from being swindled by him.
was hired to squirrel proof and add a cover over the outside of the barn/studio. This was completed and satisfactory work.
He does not communicate. I had to always contact him to find out where he was and when he would
finish. The only time he would communicate with me was when he needed money for materials, which became weekly.
He was hired to add a tin roof, add hardiboard siding and finish some brick work on the front of the main house. He was paid for the work upfront.
There was about a month delay on getting the tin for the roof because
collected the down payment from me and had used this money to finish another job, and now that man was in the hospital having surgery. He had to wait for the money from that job to finally get the tin delivered and installed. During the time that the roof was exposed, it rained and water leaked through the ceiling throughout much of the house. There are water spots on the ceiling.
was supposed to paint over them and has not.
The siding and brick work is still not complete. He keeps saying he will get the house finished when he has the money to pay the labor. He has already received my money for the labor, but he spent it on something else. I asked him to come and complete the job himself, and he declined. This has been going on since April 2012. This work is still not completed
At the same time a Shell Cabin was purchased from
for the Ranch Hands. He was paid to finish the inside and to add on two bedrooms. He was supposed to build a cover and platform for the exterior water heater. He was also supposed to put skirting around the entire cabin. This work is still not completed.
came May 30th and asked for money to get some material. I gave him the Home Depot credit card to use for the day. (Which I have always done with other contractors) I asked him on several occasions to return the card, and he kept saying that he didn’t have it or he needed to go and pick something else up. He finally returned the card to me once he had charged about $10K on it. I had no idea until the statement came in that the card was maxed out and got copies of the credit card receipts that showed he purchased many items that are not even materials for the job. He purchased multiple tools, including a $500 table saw,
drills, and many company supplies, personal water and food. He also purchased two air conditioner units. One of the AC/Heater units is in the cabin. When I asked him to bring the second AC unit, he acted as if he didn’t know what I was talking about. He then brought an AC unit over to me claiming that it was the one. I looked up the model # and the one he brought to me was from Lowes. He was supposed to be looking for the one purchased from Home Depot, but has never
responded with any update.
He never asked, nor was he given permission to purchase anything other than materials on the first day. He was never given authorization to spend $10,000 or to buy anything personal.
His Proposal for the finishing of the cabin lists two line items that would include materials, finish out allowance of $7000 and addition materials for $1500. I had already paid him for materials and am being charged twice, by having all of these charges on
my Home Depot credit card.
came to me before the Home Depot incident was discovered and expressed that with his wife dying and that him spending so much time with her and taking her to appointments, he was not able to get more jobs for income. He wanted a personal loan of $10,000 to get by. I decided to loan him the money under the conditions of the Promissory Note, which was that he would have the money back to me in 30 days. He signed and agreed to the promissory note. I am still waiting to receive my money back.
This contractor does not communicate well, does not finish jobs that he starts, he is a liar and a theif.
I would never hire him again.
In fact we are beginning the legal proceedings to recover the money he owes. I will have to pay someone else to complete the work that he has been paid for.
I do not know how he has stayed in business.
