We contracted with Paul Owens Construction in June '09 to remodel our kitchen and 3 bathrooms of our house located in Palo Alto. This proved to be a big mistake! Just before Christmas when there was still no end in sight, we learned that he was behind in paying subcontractors! Since homeowners are still liable for money owed to subs even if they have paid the general contractor, we got very worried. Fortunately we caught the problem before it was too late and hired a lawyer and eventually got Paul Owens back to complete the job. However, this time he ended up doing much of the work himself. Whereas his subs had previously performed quality work, we discovered lots of problems with the work done directly by Paul Owens. For example, instead of venting the exhaust from the master bathroom fans to the roof, he had it venting into the attic! We noted quite a few problems on punch lists (we didn't discover the problem with venting into the attic until later). He attempted to address some of the problems, but eventually declared himself done! Besides issues with the quality of construction, there were also problems with Owens Construction not obtaining sufficient permits for all the work. For example, he installed French doors off of our kitchen, but he did that without a permit. A contractor we hired through our attorney to inspect the construction noted that the installation of the French doors and the required step outside for an out-swing door was not to code. In addition to noting code violations, the inspector noted lots of issues with construction defects throughout the property. We are currently in the process of asserting claims to recover many thousands of dollars of damages.
