This guy is useless, and should NOT be allowed to work in the construction field. Working as AJL Construction, he gave me a price of $17,000 to side my house, and totally destroyed my house. Where do I even start to describe how much of a failure this guy is. First off, he showed up with the wrong siding, and when I asked him why he had the cheaper, lower grade siding in my yard, he told me that the manufactorer discontinued the siding I wanted. Once he started putting it on, it was obvious that he had NEVER sided a house before. He was nailing the siding tight to the house, putting it on crooked, and had no clue how to wrap the windows. The siding was off by as much as 4 inches from one end of my house to the other. Tony said that as long as the bubble on his level is not touching the end of the tube, it is straight enough. When questioned about all this, he told me that there are 100 different ways to install siding, and he is doing it right. I contacted the Vinyl Siding Institue Of America, and they told me that there is only ONE way to properly install siding, and that it should be printed on the outside of every box of siding. I then called Crane Siding and asked them if they discontinued the siding I wanted, and they could not believe I was asking this, since the siding I ordered is their BIGGEST seller. Then when it came time to install my soffit material, he again had no clue what he was doing, and intalled the soffits up about 2 inches higher than they should have been, told me to "throw some white paint up there and it'll look fine". Once the job was done, the siding that was nailed to tight to the house started buckling from the sun, and the siding that wasn't nailed at all began to blow off in the wind. I had a REAL contractor give me a price of $12,000 to fix this, taking all the siding and soffits off, and puttng it all up correctly.
I filed a claim against him, and it turned out that he was working without being licensed to do so, because he apparently changed the name of his company due to the fact that he destroyed another house out on Plum Island. So, i took him to court, won the case, and he filed bankruptcy and never paid a dime. At that time he was working as AJL Construction, and prior to that it was Lowther Construction. Now it appears that he is working under a different name, but doing the same shoddy work. This guy did nothing by LIE to me during the entire process, and always seemed to have an excuse as to why things were going wrong, and never took blame for anything. In the end, it cost me almost 30K for a 12K job.

This is an edited version of the complaint we are sending to the BBB and NH Attorney General's office:

Lumber Liquidators gave us a phone number to call, which ended up being The Home Service Store, or HSS. HSS set up an appointment for Tony Lowther, contractor, to show up onsite (978-618-6302 - same phone number as this company). Tony showed up, and through a series of lies, gains our permission to use what is assumed to be leftover Lumber Liquidators bamboo flooring from a previous job.
Tony installs the floor on January 24th 2009 and destroys the house. It's full of sawdust to the point where it was virtually unlivable for a week, and made people in the house sick. He installed an unusable floor, which is scratched beyond repair, cut the carpets to other rooms and left the edges bare and unraveling, cut all the boards unevenly and used wood filler to make the boards meet the wall.
During this time, the original contract disappears off an office desk. We figure out the next day that this wasn't Lumber Liquidators floor, but some cheap bamboo flooring sold at Sam's Club. We tell Tony that we want our money back, since the floor is defective, and not what we requested. Tony defends his use of Sams Club flooring, saying its good product. This is all available in saved emails. Tony Lowther simply drops all contact with us and disappears - will not answer phone or email.
We notify Lumber Liquidators and HSS. HSS provides us with a forged contract, where the front page has clearly been changed to state that we chose Sams Flooring. Since Tony Lowther knew it was safe to forge a new contract, he clearly knew we didn't have the original. Had the fact that we picked out Sam's Club flooring been on the original contract, Tony wouldn't have felt the need to defend his choice of flooring in our email exchange.
The flooring was not installed properly, and has damaged the house. The flooring was not what we were led to believe it would be, and we will have to rip it up and have new flooring put in, along with the damage to the rest of the house repaired. Our contract was stolen, and a new one was forged with our signature on it (we signed the second page, the first was completely different)
Lumber Liquidators has been unable to help, since they turned the job over to HSS. HSS has stated quite clearly in a certified letter that they will not assist with this matter, and that they are in no way responsible for sending this contractor to our house. They have also refused to provide us with his insurance company.
Tony says he works for Newburyport Home Improvement Services, but it has the same phone number and PO Box as this company. 978-618-6302, PO Box 1265
