WORST PAINTER I EVER MET (MEHMET NAYCI)

I hired a guy named Mehmet Nayci. I asked him to put one coat of paint on my walls. On half of the walls, it appeared that he only did a 1-stroke on the walls instead of properly painting the walls with a first coat of paint. And before the paint was dry on the first layer of paint, he said he had put a 2nd coat of paint on the paint that wasn't dry yet and he did not charge me for it. But if I wanted a second coat of paint on the 1-stroke layer he just applied, I would have to pay him extra. He failed to properly prepare the walls and he failed to paint the corners properly.

My tenant hire another painter he knows for years who charged him only $1,300 for the 1,000 sq ft loft.

I later found out that Mehmet Nayci were charged by the Dept. of Consumer affairs with dishonest practices. This would make sense because that is exactly how I felt I was treated.

Here is the information about the Consumer Complaint:

In 2007, we hired Ayhan and Matt (Mehmet) Nayci for a large renovation project--gutting one floor, moving walls, taking out the chimney, new bathroom, replace steam heating system with a hot-water system (combination of radiant flooring and radiators). Their employee "Dennis" was their architect--we should have been suspicious when Matt handed us an 8.5"x11" piece of paper with a drawing that looked like it was made in MS Paint. I asked if we needed a permit for this project. Ayhan said, "No, we don't need a permit." We wanted to use a new hot-water boiler that didn't need a chimney to vent--but Ayhan, Matt and the company they hired to install the heating system said that there was no such thing. So we needed a chimney which was an opportunity for them to ask for more money. They subcontracted out building a chimney on the outside of the house on a 5" concrete pad. I asked Ayhan if that was safe because it was a really tall chimney--he said, 'Yes! It's safe!" We specified wood trim. Instead we got MDF at twice the price that Kings Building Materials a few blocks down charged. Did I mention that they asked for more money for that, too? Though we had specified the door sizes for the gutted floor, the framers didn't take into account the space for the door swing. The floors were not made flat, so when the base trim was installed, there was a 1-inch gap between the base trim and the floor in a few places. Because of poor framing (not everything was plumb and level), the bathroom tile looked crooked. The glass door to the shower had to be installed at an odd angle to be plumb. None of the doors were hung plumb so they almost closed themselves when they were opened. The radiant flooring ended up being 3 layers of plywood with tubing haphazardly laid in between. They installed flooring which we bought from Ayhan/Matt (more money for that, too), so the floor was raised by 4". They did nothing to resolve that height difference with the stairs--this meant every time we walked up to that step, there was 4 inches of plywood and flooring to stare at. Work slowed down by the summer time, too. It was the electrician's fault, according to Ayhan--"He's at immigration importing his wife." Later, the electrician told me that Ayhan/Matt had stopped paying him. Ayhan's/Matt's plumber installed 2" black iron pipe to connect the radiators into the heating system--this is great for a steam system--but from the very start, we specified a hot-water system and the radiators and boiler we purchased were all for a hot-water system. With the water pressure, all the joints of the black iron pipe were leaking water everywhere. So, Ayhan/Matt hired an unlicensed plumber to take care of this problem. We had heat by Thanksgiving of 2007, and we kicked out Ayhan/Matt. The company Ayhan/Matt hired to do the heating system threatened us with lien if they didn't get paid. Except, we had already paid for the entire heating system installation to Ayhan/Matt at the start. Two months later, the new bathroom toilet was leaking. We hired a plumber to fix it. Remember the 4" floor height increase? Turns out that Ayhan's/Matt's plumber had stacked two wax rings together to make up for the floor difference rather than installing the sewage pipe higher. The wax rings had started failing which is why our toilet had been leaking. When we finally saved enough money to start a renovation project to undo everything that Ayhan and Matt did to our house, our licensed and skilled contractor found the following issues (other than the obvious mentioned above):
- The concrete pad supporting the chimney was cracking because of the weight of the chimney. The chimney could have fallen over and killed someone. A 6-ft deep concrete footing should have been installed under the chimney first.
- The framers did not install blocking between the joists. The joists were almost free-floating. This is not structurally safe, by the way, and explains why that part of the house had been swaying in 25 mph winds.
- The vent for the boiler was level--the vent is supposed to be graded so that the gases will head up and out.
- The bathroom walls were green board (great for mold/rot)--not cement board.
- The multi-head shower was poorly piped--so that's why it never worked properly!

I was personally unsatisfied with the work that Ayhan and Matt Nayci did on our home. Granted, this experience happened 6 years ago (as of this posting). Maybe they do better work now? Whether you hire Ayhan and Matt or not, I wish you much luck with your renovation project however big or small it may be.

I had a great experience with Ayhan and Matt Nayci. Hired Nayci for a brownstone renovation in park slope. My project included gut reno of all 4 levels. Very satisfied with results and very prodessional team. I have recommended Nayci to my brother in law for a multiple story building construction in jersey city.

Please feel free to contact me for any questions.

I used them for a coop apartment renovation in Manhattan. Complete renovation of kitchen and bathroom, and all new flooring. Although the contractor seemed honest and attentive at the beginning, the renovation was supposed to take 6-8 weeks. We changed the locks after 12 weeks because he never came back to finish and make the necessary corrections. In addition, the electrician he hired was illiterate and incompetent. Everything he did was wrong, including breaking a wall light I had purchased for him to install and installing the wrong type of electric boxes. Nayci ordered the wrong refrigerator (too big) and then stuffed it into the space so that the cabinets are now hard to open. They didn't do a good paint job at all, and didn't even purchase one of the colors I requested, so that the bathroom door and trim was painted the wrong color, 3 times. They broke 2 of my lamps, did not cover up my furniture carefully, and left a mess. I wouldn't recommend them to my worse enemy. I finally asked me super to finish the job and he had an electrician redo the lighting and repair Nayci's mistakes. I still have to get someone to finish the trim on the kitchen cabinets, and I stil have to get the closet painted, the bathroom trim repainted, and all the sloppy areas repainted. It will cost me far more than the piddling sum I still owe Nayci. Since they demand so much money up front, and at each stage of the renovation, by the time you are totally fed up with them, they can walk away without financial penalty. I'm sure they build that factor in to their contract and fees. What a nightmare!
