East Wind Builders failed to complete my two-story garage, ran up 50 percent cost overruns (labor only) before draining the account, then abandoned the project unfinished, refusing to complete the work on his own time. Doors were installed out of square and they leak. Custom windows were damaged during installation. He provided only one reference, claiming that (mumble-mumble) past clients did not want to be disturbed (red flag!)- even though he claimed 20 years work experience. His lone referred client had a 100 percent cost overrun (ultimately $660K!!!) and warned me to have a fixed-sum contract if I were smart, but East Wind schmoozed me big-time, causing me to ignore my own standards- a true pro. The proprietor made a middle-of-the-pack bid then begged to be paid on a weekly basis the day before starting the project, declaring uncertainty in the project costs after earlier guaranteeing his numbers were high. We kept the fixed sum of the original contract for my protection, resulting in a hybridized contract that still requires adjudicating. Charging hourly, he simply milked the account dry and failed to address my budget concerns when we sat down to review progress- just keeping silent. He failed to make deadlines, failed to deal honestly, failed to adequately correct construction deficiencies, and failed to take responsibility. His goal apparently was to work slowly, run up hours for himself and his workers, and skim off the cream. Fair warning: Get a bomb-proof contract and have a lawyer review it! Beware the value of services provided by the Construction Contractors Board, as they have been deceptive, too. Check the Oregonian article on their practices- it is scandalous! This lash-up may be able to do cheap subdivision construction with T-111 plywood, but only with liberal amounts of caulk to hide flaws. Clearly, they have limited experience in traditional building methods, forcing them to use inadequate modern methods that require incredible man-hours where five workers were needed to do the work of one. Exposes inappropriate materials to weather- such as interior birch plywood in the eaves and ungalvanized steel brackets to the salty rain. Fails to anticipate problems and fails to resolve them properly. NOT RECOMMENDED, unless you need a handyman on small out of the way projects or unless he is supervised by a reputable general contractor. Be very careful with this outfit. I feel I have been scammed. May the judge agree.
