We found out he had no business license, Worker's Comp, or insurance. Originally contracted with Mr. Stringham to complete four jobs at our home - fix a cinder block wall, add vinyl siding to an existing shed, build a 12 x 12 shed on a concrete pad. The original bid was for $5,145.01. While he was working on the cinder block wall, we added an additional concrete pad for $1,450. The new total was $6,595.01. The cinder block wall is not level. There is a dip in the middle. He also asked for an additional $100 to complete the wall. The additional concrete pad (for $1,450) has no re bar (the purpose was to park a truck). This was done incorrectly. The 12 x 12 shed - the pad was poured incorrectly. There was absolutely no way a 12 x 12 shed could be built. He built a 11 x 11 x 13 x 13 shed. The pad was not level. It slops to the wall at the back corner of the property creating a pool of water. There was no membrane between the concrete and the wood. There are also places where there is a 2" gap between the concrete floor and the wood. He asked for an additional $100 for wood. This brought the total cost for the project to $6,795.01. We paid for most of the supplies ($2,787.36), wages ($912.80), and cash to him ($1,567.34) in the amount totaling $5,267.50. He walked off the job with only the sides of the shed up. He attempted to leave our home with the supplies we had purchased. The balance due was $1,527.51. Just a little less than half of what was owed on the shed. The cost to finish the shed - purchasing the shingles, board for the roof, nails, caulk, labor to complete the siding and roof, drilling holes in the cinder block wall are in excess of the balance due Mr. Stringham. The shed still has a stream running through it when it rains. Please beware of doing business with this person. He is now threatening us with a law suit if we do not pay him and additional $500 for supplies that he purchased (that should have been covered by the $1,567.34 paid) We did contact DOPL. A citation was issued to Mr. Stringham for doing business without the proper licenses.
