My husband and I (and our 4 small children) made a HUGE mistake... we hired Kevin Busby to build our new house in Pacific Beach. Our house should have been built in 9 months; it has taken 18+ months because Kevin made a mess of our project. He passed off unlicensed subs (i.e., the plumber and the electrician) as licensed, he didn't pay his subs the money we paid him for the various trades -- MAKE SURE TO GET LIEN RELEASES from him if you dare to hire him. He is not honest, he is disorganized, and his work is defective. We have had to pay 10s of thousands of dollars to remediate defect work Kevin Busby and his workers did on our project. For example, all of our newly installed exterior doors had to be removed, waterproofed, and rehung because Kevin and his workers did not properly waterproof them when they installed them. All of the interior doors (for a 2,700 sq ft house) were ordered by Kevin with the wrong jamb sizes so extensions had to be added to every one of them, he didn't properly waterproof our upper deck so when it rained last spring water seeped into our son's room below our deck and destroyed the brand new drywall on the ceiling. These are just a few of the MANY examples of defect work. It has been a nightmare for us. We saved our entire lives to build this house and Kevin turned our project into a train wreck. BEWARE of Kevin and his workers. He is a very smooth talker (with A LOT to say) but when it comes to integrity and good workmanship he is the worst of the worst -- down right horrible.
