It was a disaster, and I now have a lien on my home from one of the suppliers that Phil Polak did not pay even though I paid him everything by the end of the project. I originally signed with Phil at the beginning of May 2015. The project was supposed to be two to three weeks. By July 15, the project was finally completed. In the middle of the project, there was a delay in getting the pavers and blocks for the patio and the entire project sat idle for about four weeks with a huge dumpster sitting in my driveway for two months. Before and after that, work was spontaneous and inconsistent. I never knew if anyone was showing up day after day. Once the patio was finished, sod was laid on compacted red clay with no top soil. Apparently, that's an OK way to do it. About a week later, the fence company showed up and spent two days walking all over the new sod and building the new fence. Apparently, that's an OK way to do it. Phil's crew re-rolled the sod, and I kept people off it for a month, and the grass finally came together, but it took a beating and has some lumps in it around the yard. The crowning achievement was the lien notice that I got in the mail at the end of September from the stone company stating they had placed a lien for $2200 on my property for materials that Phil used on my project but did not pay for. I paid Phil in installments per our agreement throughout the project. He was paid a final payment at the end of the project. Phil has all my money, yet he didn't use it to pay for all of my project. I spoke with Phil after receiving the lien notice, and he said to give him some time to do a few jobs and get the lien taken care of. I didn't want to destroy Phil and know that sometimes businesses fall on hard times or hit rough spots, but it's been two months since the lien notice and six months since I started giving Phil money, and Phil has not paid off the lien and won't respond to my messages. Unfortunately, I would not hire Phil again or recommend him to anyone. The three guys who did the actual work of building the patio and laying the sod were kind, hardworking, and did a nice job. The issue is Phil's management (or lack thereof) of his company. I found Sod Sales Direct off of Angie's List, and this is my worst experience thus far with the service. I will be happy to update my review once Phil has paid the bill that is due the stone company, the lien has been removed from my property, and Phil signs a lien waiver stating that all suppliers that provided materials for my project have been paid. My mistake was not getting a lien waver signed prior to the final payment. I won't make that mistake again neither should you.
