DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I hired Mike McNelis owner of C.A.S.H. Builders, LLC to perform 26 home improvement items on my home to prepair it for sale. Mike gave me a quote of $30. Per hour for himself and two helpers. He promised to get these items done very quickly since I was leaving the state and wanted the repairs done so that my wife didn't have to deal with a contractor. Only a portion of the work was completed and I had to watch him and his people like a hawk to get the work done and to see that it was done correctly. Even with my supervision I am UNHAPPY with everything he did and, of course, I am unhappy that he represented he would complete the job on time and he onlly completed a portion of my list. Ultimately, towards the end of my time frame I took the remaining work away from him and made him concentrate on completing what he had started and what was not to my satisfaction (which was everything). Mike is a very nice guy, but he cannot follow instructions, does poor quality work, and the people that work for him do not have ANY skills--they are just day laborers. Mike does not supervise his crew--he just tells them what to do and then goes off and works on the projects he is doing himself. One of his employees is WORTHLESS. He throws trash and cigarette butts everywhere, b****** about having to work and what he is told to do, attempts to stand around and supervise the other worker with him, and does the worst work I could imagine--his name is William--you should not allow this man on your property. I told Mike about what he was doing and Mike talked to him on several occasions and nothing improved. Mike is not a leader or supervisor and this guy walks all over him--oh yea, he likes to talk on his cell phone when he should be working and can't wait to leave the job when it is close to the end of their very short workday. Mike told me that William had been with him for several years and that he was rough on his equipment and that he had complaints about him from other past customers. The other helpers just did what they were told to do and they had no skills or even the right tools. I loaned them many tools while they were there. Here are the facts about the results of this work: 1) Red mulch put around house and trees--they did this job early in their contract with me and then proceded to trample it the remaining time they were there. They did not order enough mulch and had to go back and get more and they charged me for the trip with their dump truck. Then they forgot to do two trees and had to steel mulch from other areas already mulched. I told them to do a 3' ring around the trees and I got about 6'. Then they missed patches under the shrubs and had to go back and put in more--because I told them to not because the caught it themselves. 2) They replaced boards in my fence and managed to miss doing several boards and had to go back and buy more material--because I told them--not because they knew it on their own. 3) They pressure washed the wood fence which had a decorative butterfly on it (hanging by one screw and easily removable) but William just pressure washed the fence with the butterfly on place---it was a gift from my daughter to my wife and had colorful, sparkly paint and was very pretty. It was pressure washed right down to the bare metal and was then quite ugly. The butterfly outline was then left on the fence. This was not replaced or repaired or even credited to the bill--I had to tell Mike it was done because he didn't even notice. Then he took it down and had the butterfly outline removed. Ok, are you getting the picture----there is so much more for me to gripe about but I am going to shorten my descriptions 4) Installed new vent covers in foundation of home--16 total--told him to not let William do the work so he used William and the quality sucked and the cement work was ugly. Told Mike to fix it and he said he would use a grinding tool to remove the excess cement but that he could not guarantee the he would not cut the screens on the vents--I told him no way, so he agreed to smooth out the morter with a fresh, neat layer on top of the sloppy job. So, he took dry mortar and smoothed it over the old mortar--it looked good and fooled me until the wind blew and the rain washed of off. And, William left chunks of mortar under each vent that dried and mucked up the mulch---No, he didn't clean it up. 5) Repaired rotten wood at frond door--had to go back and do a better job. 6) Repaired trim around front door--had to go back and do abetter job==still sucked. 7) Pressure washed concrete around pool--was told to use bleach---didn't. And only did 1/2 around the pool--because it was poor work and I fired him. 8) Pressure washed brick entry way to home--was told to use bleach--didn't---crappy job---William again (with no supervision). 9) Put new mortar in cracks of entry way brick---did about half the ones that needed it---crappy job---Unsupervised William again. 10) Trimmed new growth from hedges---didn't remove all of the trimmings and just covered it with mulch---William and no supervision. 11) Repaired rotten threshold at sliding glass door to pool---the ugliest job I have ever seen--caulk everywhere and then painted on top of it. Used big ugly board and covered up weep holes for water to escape so that water would build up in track and come into house. Mike did this poor work and I told him before he started the job to make sure he didn't cover up the weep holes. He repaired the sloppy work, after I told him I wasn't goin to pay---It still looked like 3rd grade work. 12) Removed trash pile I made while cleaning out attic, garage, and storage building. William and his helper spent a lot of time going thru the stuff and kept it instead of throwing it away---still charged me for it and still left a big pile and old picnic table that I told them to remove. 13) Dug out wells around foundation vents and put in rock for drainage to keep water out from under my house. Told them to dig down to cement footer---didn't dig that far and put in the rock to try to hide it from me----I told them to use 1'' rock and he brought in a ton of pea gravel and dumped it in the yard---ignored my request to do 1''---once again Mike had to be told that the job was not to my satisfaction because he didn't supervise his people. 14) William re-grouted a water drain next to my pool and left excess mortar in chunks for someone else to clean up (my dad did the work). 15) Replaced rotten wood on sunroom windows. Covered up these weep holes too and did a really poor job of repairs--Mike himself. 16) Reattached shutter to home at pool house---it was green so he bought and used black plastic plugs---looks like crap. 17) Was asked to make shutters look new again. They were weathered and old. He tried Armor All--it didn't work (my idea) then he pressure washed them and did and left me with a crappy unattractive job. 18) Had a helper try to trim my trees with a hand sheer meant for indoor plants. The suckers on the trees were up to 1'' in diameter. I told him that was not cost efficient and he said "what would you like me to do" I told him to use the right tools for the job---so he went to his truck and got a large set of trimmers and gave them to the worker.--oh yea, lots of these cuttings got covered up with the mulch too. I COULD TELL YOU MORE BUT I AM TIRED OF TYPING-----DON'T HIRE THIS GUY IS MY MESSAGE TO YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSEComments relative to the negative review of our services placed on Angie’s List I will respond to his charges as he presented them: I talked with him the day before we went to the job. He said he had work for a week. I told him we were booked but he insisted he needed help immediately. We arrived the next day at the appointed time. We went through a list of projects that would have taken four men ...
