This man used the above name of company to purchase 10 new windows for my house. We hired him to reside w/ hardi board, instulate & put in water-vapor barrier & install OSB & remove kitchen door/install new door w/ frame work & remove 10 windows & install 1 new window & frame all inside windows & make ready wall the master b/rm were the window was removed & prime & paint outside of house and trim work.
NO written contract. ONLY verbal with a hand shake.
I thank God that we did not sign his contract. For the scale of work agreed upon and the amount of money and length of time promised. NOT delivered. We thought we were getting a AAA remodel job. This contractor from the beginning showed that he could not deliver. Started in April 2009, walked of job June 1, 2009. Leaving HIS tools behind. WE stored them for him in the garage. First contract after he walked off job, was in late July/ early August 2009, when He filed a lawsuit against my husband for final payment due on remodeling job. NOT COMPLETED!!! This contractor DID tell the helpers &
other people in the Richmond/Rosenberg/Needville,TX area that WE did not pay him and that WE were holding HIS tools for ransom. DISAPPOINTING, for THIS contractor befriended US. To cover HIS lies, HE tried to cover HIS lies with more lies. He did not have 'his crew' to do work. ONLY with 2 names WE provided him with, the remodel job got under-way. Hired 1 full time helper, this one was the most knowledgable one of all and lasted about 6 weeks, the contractor paid him an undisclosed amount of monies for his services. There were 4 more helpers hired by him, 1 helper at 1 day only>could have been injuried when ladder broke, the contractor DID NOT pay him for this services; 1 helper at 3 days max; 1 helper at 2 days max. His 4th helper was the best helper> the contractor DID NOT PAY for ALL of his services; This helper had NO knowledge of remodeling. He endured alot of verbal abuse from the contractor. My husband & I paid this contractor, $4,750.00, approx.95% of amount agreed on, thank God we retained 5% of the money $250.00. We bought all material & paint. The appearance of remodel job is good. WE finished our house ourselves. The soffits were lefted open to the weather & animals, except for the length on back of house. WE installed & painted the soffits ourselves. WE finished the painting of ALL the outside trim, except for 1 kitchen window & 2 corner trim work. WE finished the framing of 7 windows, WE had to HIRE-OUT the last 3 windows at $225.00 total.The front porch was NOT attached back to the house NOR was all the boards attached back. The a/c electric box was NOT attached back to house. The phone box was NOT attached back to house. The kitchen porch was NOT put back up properly. The dead bolt lock was NOT lined up by this contractor. My hubby had to do it himself. OVER ALL--> Some days HE did NOT show up at all. WE will not give this contractor ANY OTHER work. HE was ALL LIP service, boosting about ALL his 'good work'- HE showed ALL his talk was NOT backed up by the FOOT work. Require references and ASK to see work that was done by this contractor. WE DID NOT. THAT WAS our mistake as 'friends'.
Even by my hubby working with this contractor almost every
evening after work. This contractor tried to cut-corners & argue
with my hubby on how the JOB should be done. I personally
will continue to pray for him to have direction by HIS higher
power. There is NO proof that THIS contractor by this name is
affiliated with the above construction company, NOR does this author say that this contractor is using the above construction
company as his company, NOR does this author say that there is a company named in the above is in exist or is NOT in existence. This author is saying ONLY that the named above person used the above construction company in purchasing our windows through a window manufacture to receive a contractor's discount. This contractor also used another company's name when HE purchased OUR
paint through a paint company in Rosenberg, TX. This author
does not know if this contractor has been licensed or bonded through the great state of Texas are not.
