We hired Robe-Ana Construction (corporate group of Kayton Lee Residential, and Hex Roofing) 1/2018 to build a pool house with a contracted completion date of 4/30/2018. We paid the requested deposit of half up front, $48,027.50, to initiate the project and later and additional $3,294. After damaging our property, several bumbled attempts to start and many excuses, they were denied a permit by the city of El Paso. Although we were continually assured that everything would be fine, our eyes were finally opened the day a few of their workers snuck onto our property to retrieve their forms, and when asked why, the workers said they had not been paid. Unfortunately, Robe-Ana Construction failed to do their due diligence, and what we contracted for, could not be built. We don’t understand how leaving us with piles of trash everywhere, a mound of dirt in the backyard, and property damage to our home justifies them keeping $51,000+. To make maters worse, not only have we lost our hard earned savings, but have had to spend more money to retain a lawyer to compel Robe-Ana to return our down payment, they received 8 months ago. Please don’t be charmed. In my opinion, if you put a large sum of money down or use financing, demand to have a dedicated escrow account where your money is protected and can’t be filtered out for other people’s projects. (UPDATE 09/13/2018):The company has offered to return $10,000, and because of sharing my opinion regarding my experience with Robe-Ana Construction, the company has had their lawyer send a Cease & Desist Letter threatening litigation.
