He is always either late or doesn't show up at all. The price of the work quickly escalated as he was always requesting another installment for this or that. (Also, wanted cash so he could avoid paying taxes.) He always has story about why he won't show up, but I stopped believing any of them. While he was working on my house, I would overhear him talking on the phone to another customer claiming he wasn't at their house because his truck had broken down. The only thing he will do enthusiastically is talk your ear off about his turbulent and apparently unsatisfying personal life. Also, our floors look horrible! I tiptoe around the house because every tiny thing leaves marks on the finish.

1st The only other review which is 5 stars was written by Carl....look at the email address! The real story...Sad story Carl always has an excuse..He placed hardwood floors in my living rm and refinished the other hardwoods in my home. Didn't finish the job, and didn't apply the minimum 3 coats. I have bare wood spots all over and streaks where I can see his roller marks all over. He kept making appointments to complete the job and never showed up...each time...I write this review on his Craigs list ad and others have responded with same complaints...."Never finishes and bad work". I was surprised others emailed me with their Carl Bowen sad stories. I have received about 15 over the past 9 months. So Beware! He is cheap for a reason...so is his work and forget the warranty....he writes his bids on loose leaf because he is always out of "bid paper or sheets" another sad story. Always has car issues....always needs his money sooner than agreed and higher amounts per interval due to some sad story. He answers his phone and makes appointments to finish the job or look at the problem and never comes....tried about 5 times and never showed about 5 times. Poor Carl....poor you if you hire him.
