Joe is a liar a thief and has no Morals!

Joe made an agreement to add additional slats of redwood fencing to my already standing good neighbor fence. I made an agreement with Joe that he would place two posts in the fencing to stabilize the fence, power-wash the fence and then hang the new redwood fencing. Joe priced the fencing for the application of 4 stabilizing posts instead of the agreed upon 2. Later that day he contacted me and told me that he'd overcharged me. He said to make up for the 2 post overcharge he would pay for the stain for the fencing, I agreed.
Joe recommended I pick up Penofin stain for application to the fence. I investigated the brand and saw that it only received one star for it's quality. I then began to investigate other stains to make an education choice. As I was looking into the stains, I was told by many people whom worked with wood and stains, that I should allow freshly cut redwood to dry for 6 months before applying a stain ( or it would have bad results). I continued to take my time investigating stains , as I had now decided that I wanted to wait until the redwood was dry to apply the stain. Joe was very pushy about applying the stain even though it was not the best process for the care of the new wood. I told him I wanted to wait to apply the stain, he continued to badger me to pick and allow him to apply a stain , so that he could get the job over with. I had already paid Joe in full, so I couldn't understand why he wouldn't allow me to treat my newly purchased ($ 3,600.00/ job) wood the way that I saw fit. Unfortunately I allowed Joe to force me to allow him to apply the stain, although it was not in the best interest of my new purchase. I told Joe that I wanted to be home when he applied the stain to the wood. He insisted that it had to be done on a Wednesday ( although I was not able to be home). He asked me why I wanted to be home? I told him I wanted to see it applied, so I was sure I liked the outcome. He said " Well, It needs to be done on Wednesday, I have another big Job to do, it has to be done." He said once he started applying the stain it couldn't be stopped, that it was a all day preparation process. He said he had to protect the other neighbors yards and fencing with tarp, so the stain wouldn't go through." He called me while I was at work and told me I needed to buy more stain, that he didn't have enough. I told him I'd pick more up the next day.
When I got home there were paint brushes and rollers on the ground ( he had never used a sprayer at all!
I was relieved to have really liked the color of the fencing. Joe came over to look at the fence with me. I told him I liked it and asked what more he planned to do with the extra stain? He pointed to a knot in the wood and said he wanted to touch up small areas like that one which seemed to be stained unevenly. I agreed to allow him to do some small touch ups , but basically was very happy with the color of the fence. A couple of days later, I got more stain and let Joe know. Again, I wanted to be home when he did the touch ups, but he insisted it had to be done immediately, although I would be at an appointment. I submitted to his urgency to get the job done. When I got home he had applied large amounts of stain to all of the old wood, causing it to take on an ugly orange,streaky color. I called him, furious because he had ruined my fencing. He said" I don't know what you're making such a big deal about! It will fade! He said after HIS GUYS applied the touch-up stain "it looked funny, so he told them to fix it" Apparently, Joe allowed untrained strangers to apply stain to my fencing with just brushes (not a sprayer), the ruined the color that I liked so much, and felt they had to pour large amounts of stain over it to fix it!

JOE ALLOWED STRANGERS TO WORK AT MY HOME AND DIDN'T EVEN SUPERVISE THEM!
We continued to have a heated exchanges on the phone. And he refused to fix the mess he made.
The next day, I was in contact with Joe, I demanded he fix the mess he made of my fence and pay me for the the purchase of the stain as he originally agreed to . He refused to even consider fixing my fence. He said " YOU PICKED THE COLOR! He told me I was :"TRIPPING!, he wasn't going to give me any money , nor was he going to fix my fence!" Again, we had angry, heated words. Eventually, he agreed to pay for the stain as he originally agreed ( to make up for overcharging me).

I WILL BE REPORTING JOE TO THE STATE CONTRACTING BOARD AND FILE A CLAIM IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT!

I believe that some men think they can take advantage of women, when they see that they are alone. I will not let Joe take advantage of me.
