I apologize if this disgusted you. On another occasion, the air compressor was left on and started going off at 5:00 a.m. on the weekend on a day when we ALL could sleep in. When confronted about this, Justin joked about it and said something like your husband paid me to use the air compressor as an alarm clock. I didn?t think it was very funny. It is called being IRRESPON SIBLE AT THE AGE OF THIRTY SOMETHING. Now most importantly for the quality of work?where do I start? Amanda (Justin?s girlfriend) helped Justin do the tile in my son?s bathroom. It was NOT done correctly and needs REDONE per two other contractors that came in to give us an estimate to finish/ fix what Justin started/ did not do correctly. Justin made an awful lot of excuses during the FIVE MONTHS that we dealt with him. I don?t know how many times Justin did not come to work on our house or he was late coming to our house because his car got egged, he had to go to the pizza shop, his veins burst open, he overslept, he went home and fell asleep, and pop exploded in his car to name just a few. My husband confronted Justin about the grout in our son?s bathroom because some of the grout looks to be the color fawn (the color we selected) and most of the grout looks white. Justin told my husband that that is the way it is supposed to look. Granted, I don?t have much construction experience but I do have a question for you. Why do you select a grout color if the grout is to appear your color in some places and white in most places? My husband spoke to a person in the flooring section at The Home Depot and he said that Justin probably did not let the grout dry completely before putting the sealer on. Justin had to use a tool to widen the door opening of the closet in our guestroom. Justin CUT our new flooring and NEVER told us about it. He then tried to COVER IT UP with caulking thinking we would not notice?well we noticed. When confronted about it, Justin denied it. I sent him a picture via text message and he stated ?I didn?t try to Cover Up anything. If something did happened I tried to repaired it. Like anyone would have done.? I apologize for the incorrect grammar and punctuation usage. I just wanted to show you his explanation. From his explanation, I?m ASSUMING he tried to repair it without telling us. Justin installed the vanity in our son?s bathroom. He screwed the vanity to the wall to the extreme extent that the vanity legs don?t even touch the floor. The vanity NEEDS REINSTALLED. Justin did not stain the top of our son?s bedroom door, our guestroom door, and our son?s bathroom door. Apparently, WHAT YOU CAN?T SEE DOESN?T NEED FINISHED PROPERLY. I just hope that other work that we can?t see isn?t done as POORLY. Justin was so careless that he reversed the piece of shoe around my son?s bedroom door. Justin was told about it a couple times and still did NOT FIX IT. Justin did not stain or clear coat all pieces of wood before hanging. He was careless and GOT STAIN on freshly painted walls and new flooring in our son?s bedroom. Now we need to repaint some walls and figure out how to get the stain off the flooring. Justin said his specialty was carpentry. I would BEG TO DIFFER. Some of Justin?s miter cuts left HUGE GAPS between trim, baseboards, and molding. I sent Justin a text message with a picture of ?OUR FAVORITE BAD MITER CUT? and Justin stated ?That is from the crooked corner how can you talk about someone?s work when you have no idea what you are talking about. It is old house?I feel bad for the contractor that is coming there he has no chance?? Once again, I apologize for the incorrect grammar and punctuation usage. Once again, I know I am by no means a construction expert but I do know that you should not have large gaps even with old houses. We had a few contractors come in, when we no longer wanted Justin to do the work in our house, and they even said that was BAD. One of ?OUR FAVORITE JUSTIN MOMENTS? is when my husband was informing Justin over the phone about some of the work that needed fixed or redone. Justin ended up hanging up on my husband. That just shows Justin is in THE WRONG! To show how much Justin lies, I will give you another example. When confronted about not finishing by September 19th, Justin stated ?I thought you guys were OK with the house not being done until next year.? I have a couple questions for you. 1.) Why would anyone want to live in chaos that long? and 2.) Why did we have a contract for June, July, and August 2012 if we didn?t want the work done until 2013? Justin?s work was good in the beginning but as time went on his work was rushed and he was careless. We have TWO PLUS TYPED PAGES of work that STILL NEEDS COMPLETED OR FIXED. The following is a list of things that need completed or fixed after five months of Justin?s work or lack thereof. Drywall in the living room, entry way in the living room, and closet in the living room needs fixed and finished Trim, molding, shoe, and baseboards need stained and clear coated for the living room Stain, clear coat, and hang bi-fold closet door in the living room Add knobs or handles to the bi-fold closet door Mantel needs made, stained, clear coated, and hung Molding and shoe needs hung around the ceilings in the living room, entry way in the living room, and closet in the living room Molding needs hung around the windows and doors in the living room, entry way in the living room, and closet in the living room Baseboards and shoe need hung in the living room, entry way in the living room, and closet in the living room Caulking needs applied to baseboards, molding, and shoe wherever needed in the living room Tile floor needs installed around the fireplace in the living room, in the entry way in the living room, and in the closet in the living room Thresholds in the living room need stained, clear coated, and installed Stairs and landings need sanded, stained, and finished Molding, trim, shoe, baseboards, and doors need clear coated in hallway, on stairs, in our son?s bathroom, in our guestroom, and in our son?s bedroom Baseboards, molding, and shoe need hung in the hallway, on the landing, and on the stairs Drywall needs fixed in a couple places in the hallway and on the steps Storage door on landing needs fixed so it closes properly Storage door imitation wood fix made by Justin needs fixed because it is no longer fully attached Countertop in our son?s bathroom needs centered on the vanity Vanity in our son?s bathroom needs installed properly Threshold needs stained, clear coated, and put down in our son?s bathroom The top of the door and the side of door needs stained and clear coated in our son?s bathroom The door in our son?s bathroom needs stained in a few places Shoe needs hung in the closet in our son?s bathroom Molding needs hung in the closet in our son?s bathroom One handle needs to be added to the closet door in our son?s bathroom Shoe needs hung on the left side in the closet and on the right side out of the closet in our son?s bathroom Tile floor needs fixed in our son?s bathroom Shoe needs hung on right side of door in my son?s bathroom Top of the door in the guestroom needs stained and clear coated Drywall needs fixed on the wall and ceiling in the guestroom in a couple places Doors in the guestroom need touched up with stain in a few places Stain on the closet door in the guestroom needs lightened up some in spots Cubby door in the guestroom needs made again Fix the floor where Justin cut it in the guestroom Caulk molding, shoe, and baseboards in guestroom where needed Add shoe to right of our son?s bedroom door Fix the knicks in our son?s bedroom walls Turn shoe around above our son?s bedroom door Stain trim above our son?s bedroom door Cubby door in our son?s bedroom needs made again Remove stain from walls and floor from Justin being careless and not staining before hanging trim Stain some spots of trim that were missed in our son?s bedroom Caulk molding, shoe, and baseboards in our son?s bedroom where needed Fix spots in our son?s closet from bad measuring Put knobs or handles on our son?s bedroom closet Stain, clear coat, and put the threshold in our son?s bedroom The door to the master bedroom needs stained in a few places and clear coated As of October 10th, OUR MASTER BEDROOM WAS THE ONLY ROOM/ AREA THAT WAS COMPLETELY FINISHED. Although there are a few spots where the drywall could be better but Justin told us that it is drywall and drywall will never be perfect. Once again, I am no expert in construction but have seen much better work done by other contractors. We were nothing but nice to Justin and Amanda (Justin?s girlfriend). We gave them countless bottles of water for free, we made them multiple dinners free of charge, and we told Justin that he could do his laundry free of charge while he worked on our house when he had a falling out with his girlfriend. Justin called my husband and needed help twice because he locked himself out of his apartment. My husband took a ladder to his apartment immediately both times. One time was at 2:30 a.m. when Justin called our home phone. My husband also helped him search for a lost money bag from the pizza shop for two hours at 2:30 a.m. after he helped him get into his apartment. Sounds like we treated Justin the same that we treat our friends. I know my husband and I don?t treat our friends the way JUSTIN TREATED US. SHAME ON US for giving Justin multiple chances to come through and finish our house with his ?word? that he kept giving us. SHAME ON JUSTIN for being irresponsible, making excuses, lying, doing poor quality work, and not finishing the job by the agreed upon date. Signed, Two Very Concerned Working Professionals Updated on January 6th- We had to REDO the tile in the bathroom as it cracked and this IDIOT failed to put the sensor/ thermostat for the heated floor in under the tile.
