I entered into a contract with Dave Meseck of Home Improvement Specialists on October 6, 2014 in Kerrville, Texas, Kerr County for a turn-key job to build a wrap around deck with a full wrap railing, ADA ramp, two sets of stairs & a wrap around metal roof with decking. This contract included all materials, labor and a completion time of 2 weeks for a total of $18,000.00. I paid $12,000.00 for the material on 10-6-14. Dave Meseck received a labor draw for $3,000.00 on 10-10-14. The remaining $3,000.00 was to be due upon completion of job. On October 17th Dave Meseck told me that he needed $4,500.00 in addition to the contract or he would be unable to complete the job. Dave Meseck complained that he was unable to pay labor out to his employees and had no money for material! During the 2 weeks he was on my property building I noticed he had brand new hand tools, tables saws, metal saw horses, wheel barrows, tool belts, tarps, etc. Dave Meseck squandered the material money and purchased a new rig up for his business and then sobbed that he had no money to finish the job & attempted to carry the burden over to me at my expense. He threatened me by saying if I did not pay him the additional $4,500.00 immediately that he would not finish the job. I had already paid for all the material upfront and I am missing decking boards, deck screws, rafters, 5/8" decking for the roof and the metal sheets for the roof and the metal flashing, rail boards and hog panels for the wrap around hand railing. I do not have all the materials in my possession to complete the job he walked away from. Dave Meseck stole my money/materials. Dave Meseck has not shown up since Oct. 21st. He left me with an unfinished deck and I had already paid him a total of $15,000.00. I have called Dave but he never answered my calls or returned my messages. He carries his cell phone with him at all times. Dave Meseck frequents Lowe's Home Improvement stores to buy his tools and materials. He wears a neon green t-shirt and a blue head wrap. He drives a white truck. Dave Meseck lives at 41 Wildcat Loop Kerrville, TX 78028. I would put a judgment on him but he does not own land in Kerr county. I am filing this theft of service with the attorney General. I am also filing a small claims against him to complete the job. I will file a complaint with Better Business Bureau. I intend to leave my reviews on Angie's List, Yelp, Consumer Affairs and any other review outlet.
