His work is slip shod and he constantly took short cuts.
So far it has cost me several thousand dollars to finish the work he failed to do and to repair a lot of the work he did.
Fortunately, he stalled on the stucco repair and sidewalk work installation until it was 3 months overdue. At which point I asked for my deposit money back. He returned all but $100.00 and said "I'll be back next week with the money, buy some concrete and I'll finish the stucco, and I'll finish all the caulking and anything else you found wrong. Problem is next week never comes. This has been going on since February 2013.
He has promised " I will be back next week to return your money and finish and repair the work" I heard this song a minimum of 36 times in person and on the phone.. But "Next week" never comes.
He took down perfectly good rain down spouts & elbows and crushed them, When I asked when he was going to put them back up, he said I'll give you an estimate. I told him I was going to pay him for damage he actually caused. He then tried to straighten out the pipes and elbows. Many of the elbows were installed backwards and of course leaked in torrents. It also looked like crap with the new siding.
I paid him extra to replace 4 gutters and and install gutter screens.All of them leaked and and only one gutter had a screen which was just laying in the gutter. When he was nearly finished two other main gutters were leaking profusley and doing damage around the house. His standard answer was "I never touched them" This happened with several other things.Verizon had to come back three times to my house when he removed the fiber optic control panel and didn't know how to put it back along with trying to bend the fiber cable and breaking it. I also had to replace a FIOS cable going upstairs to a TV set. Standard answer I didn't touch it.
I had to get another contractor to replace all the gutters and downspouts.
He installed windows on my porch, that were leaking inside the house, from the weep holes. I have since found out that they should not have been mounted directly onto the porch ledge. They should have been raided on a 2x4 with a metal plate.So the weep holes would be above the Aluminum trim.
As it looks now I will also need to replace all of the window trim because he never cut & fitted the aluminum properly and was trying to fill half to one inch gaps with caulking. I was also told it was not the greatest grade of aluminum either. When I questioned him about the caulking every week. he stopped doing it altogether. Leaving about 95% of the trim not sealed. Every sill has collapsed and pulled away from the wall causing leaks behind the siding. I have had to repair loose siding and several have slipped. I have also been told the so called insulation he put behind the siding is a useless waste of money unless the whole house was wrapped in it first and all the seems sealed. He just shoved small pieces behind the panels. I was also told that there should be no open holes in the paneling any pipes cable, railings etc, should have been boxed in with kits.
Every time I take a close look at the work I find more problems. I am writing this to prevent another trusting home owner like myself from being taken advantage of.
For your own peace of mind DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY FOR ANY KIND OF WORK

Update: April 2016. I have found that he has several addresses and because of this, the Better Business Bureau does not print his complaints. They have listed him as assumed to be out of business because they can not contact him.

The so called business ruined our house and will not respond to calls. He will have a civil suit on his hands soon enough. Do yourself a favor and call a professional.
