Member says Spring Valley contractor abandoned job
I hired T&G Remodeling of Spring Valley, Calif., to remodel my kitchen, including new cabinets, counters, lighting and flooring. I signed a contract with the head contractor, which included a schedule of when money would be paid as the remodel progressed.
My first clue that the contractor was having a problem came when he started asking for money earlier than the timeline on the contract, and before the work was completed as stipulated. Subcontractors would set appointments and not show up or call explaining why they were not coming.
Finally, I cornered one subcontractor who admitted the reason he hadn’t shown up to install was that the head contractor had not paid him yet. Consequently, the remodeling was repeatedly delayed. The head contractor will not return any of my calls, and my job has not been finished.
This kitchen remodel is a nightmare. I want them to complete my remodel as promised, which includes finishing the kitchen backsplash and completing the stone edging around the flooring.

Have a complaint?
Our Angie’s List complaint resolution team attempts to resolve disputes between members and service providers. During this process, three outcomes can happen: Penalty Box, Resolved or Stalemate. Companies that don’t respond to a member’s complaint will be placed in the Penalty Box until they respond. A case becomes Resolved if a company addresses the complaint to the member’s satisfaction, or it becomes a Stalemate if the provider responds, but the company and the member can’t reach an agreement.
