It was better than expected.  He was professional and courteous.  He showed up on time, and there were no surprises.  He was clean.  I dealt locally, and I didn't take the lowest price, and I got more than I bargained for.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
He did vinyl siding.

see previous message. P.S.   While Dick Welch lists his company name as Apple Construction Corp - do not be fooled. This name is NOT a corporation and neither this name or his is a registered construction company/business with the Rhode Island Secretary of State.  You only have to check the RI Secretary of State web site to confirm this.

We had several construction professionals review the work he had done and a lot of the work needed to be torn out and redone. In the end Dick Welch, Richard Welch aka Apple Construction appeared to us as very dishonest and someone not to be trusted. It was a loss to us for approx. $50, 000, say nothing of the heartache he caused us. We tried to re-coup some of our losses through legal venues but w...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
BEWARE!!! I am surprised to see that Dick Welch, Richard Welch aka Apple Construction is still in business and now uses this company again- he changes the names of his companies. He began a huge renovation project for us in the spring of 2004 in Wakefield, RI. He was charged with renovating a large 5 bedroom home into an office and apartment and also renovating a barn into a studio. By Sept 2004 we had to ask him to "cease construction work on our property" because of the substandard quality of the work, the slow rate of progress, outright errors, and the lack of close supervision of subcontractor's work. Even worse and more importantly we also discovered that we paid for materials and work that was not delivered and/ or not completed, billed twice for same items, grossly overcharged. He was quite tricky about how he went about this. After requesting he stop working for us (i.e. he was fired) the subcontractors who we had given him money for material, sued us because he did not pay them!

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

With over thirty years building homes in Rhode Island eventually one might find themselves dealing with a customer that would not be satisfied. The record is clear that I have a clean record with the Rhode Island Contractor's Registration and Licensing Board, Registration #24.
