I was initially excited about the renovations and was initially pleased with quality of work performed by James, who appeared very knowledgeable and skilled with the work he performed. Plumbing and electrical work appeared well executed, with the exception of paying $700.00 to have my electric service upgraded from 100 amp to 200 amp, as I was recently informed by an electrician who I had to hire to install the $20.00 breaker for my pool that the service had not been upgraded to 200 amp service. Mr. Hughes via text, wrote that he planned to charge me $200.00 for that same breaker. I was sincerely displeased with the quality of the drywall repair and overall painting of the ceiling and walls, which was performed by another worker. This worker was very fast and painting appeared haphazard, as he missed areas of the ceiling and walls and did an inadequate job of patching nail holes, etc. This same worker poorly installed wainscotting in the master bedroom and even cut the panels in the bedroom with a power saw, allowing brown saw dust to fly around the freshly painted room, where it soiled bed linens, etc. The poorly executed painting and installed wainscotting was pointed out to Mr. Hughes. Said he would send someone else to fix the wainscotting, which he did several weeks later. The painting was left as is. Understand that this project was initiated in January and was stretched out over a four month period, with sporadic work being performed. At times there was little or no communication with Mr. Hughes, as he failed to respond to telephone calls and/or text messages in a timely manner. Cabinets and countertops took weeks to get, as Mr. Hughes reported that they had to be back ordered. Back splash was never installed and one cabinet is missing a side panel. The paint on existing cabinets is flacking off. To say the least, the process of this "renovation" has altered my perception of trust, honesty, and integrity of those in the home "improvement" business, especially Mr. Hughes. It is my heartfelt belief that I was taken advantage of due to being a single 67 year old retired school teacher who was seen as "vulneralbe." This personal experience has proven to be emotionally and psychologically damaging and my kitchen remains unfinished. It pains me to look at it. Especially since it cost approximately $10,000.00!!!
