    Universal Renovation Consultants

    We signed the contract with universal renovation on April the 5th of 2015. Then I had a check cut from the department of loss and insurance which somehow Universal already knew about. I was told that the check would be sent to me through FedEx and that I should receive it on Friday. The owner of Universal was waiting on my front steps for several hours waiting for the check to arrive and immediately took and cashed it.  A week after that they started the work and were supposed to show us building designs and floor plans but they never did. The HVAC guy just showed up one day without explaining why he was there and stated working on the HVAC system. I later found out that he wasn?t even qualified to work on HVAC systems. The second HVAC guy to show up just started cutting holes in my kitchen wall and floor. I asked him why he was doing that and I was told that the holes were for the return vents. However, one hole was in a cabinet and the other hole was under where the refrigerator was going. He told me that he didn?t know anything about the floor plan and was told to just install the vents. The builders broke my tub and several tiles that they just covered up and when I complained they said not to worry about it since no one would be able to see it. They didn?t install my water heater properly and just covered the pipes with sheetrock before the inspector could look at it. Universal did everything piecemeal, not to code, and they even started sealing up the walls and painting before the plumbing was done.

    The building inspector found that the floor supports under my master bedroom were not to code from the first company and told Universal to bring the floor up to code. They argued with the inspector that it wasn?t in the budget and demanded that they receive an additional $20,000 before they would work on it. The building inspector also had several issues with Universal not posting their licenses and permits on the building as they were working. They had several arguments about refusing to post their permits on the side of the building.

    They only had two people working on the house and my lawyer found out that the project manager and the owner of the company were not even on the permits. The permits were signed by someone else and the paperwork states that they only are required to have two workers on my project. Also they are not bonged even though they said that they were.

    The building inspector finally told Universal that they were no longer allowed to work on the house and that they were not building anything to code. They were kicked off of my property and they left all of their tools and equipment. I was going to set up a time for the equipment to be returns but they came by at night and took everything when I was not there. They even went through and stole some of my personal items there were being stored in the basement.

    Universal now wants me to pay for all of the work that was done even though they never completed a single project on the house. I?ve had to get my lawyer involved too since they are using their lawyer.

    They also left plates of food, bottles of urine, and buckets of fecal matter laying around the house for us to clean up every day which I really did not appreciate.

    Moon Construction New York Corp
    They did a very lousy job, they got into my bathtub with the dirty work boots on and did not tell me, dropped paint and did not clean it up, they were very messy. He did a lousy job. He told me that if I wanted a perfect job on the painting of my home that I needed to pay more money I paid 1,000 dollars for the work and provided him the paint. I was suppose to have cabinets in my kitchen installed and he explained to  me that he had a bigger job available and he had to leave, now I have to find someone else to get the rest of the work completed.

    Landmark Design
    I highly recommend Landmark design and have passed on Mr Umbro's contact information to both family and friends for their projects.
    From past experiences, I know how important timeliness, conscientiousness, and quality is to a construction project. I did not have to
    chase after Mr. Umbro for any finishing touches or redoes. He was always a step ahead. He clearly takes pride in his work and reputation. I am presently embarking on a next project with this company.

    Estimated job at $1500 for full day's work on a small area of my spanish tile roof.  Said he woould replace flashing's in one area and inspect and correct for broken tiles and exposed nail holes.  Worked for only 2 hours; spread some membrane and compound, and calk gunned some exposed nail holes.  I protested price but didn't win.  (It remains to be seen if leak has stopped)
