FROM THE RENO-MAN HIMSELF
I was extremely disappointed to see this bad review of me , being posted in Dec, 2010. Unfortunately this was posted almost 2 years after the job was done and never once heard of any complaints from BJ, because there weren't any valid ones! Job was done right!
She couldn't pay me, left me a message in the middle of the night: she asked me to agree to a monthly $500 installment plan, but after a couple months she disappeared with about half of the Invoice unpaid !!!
She posted this negative review after I took her to court and she hired a lawyer (which took another 3 years!)
I WOULD NEVER BASH A CLIENT, but this one was really below my belt.
Every single item she blames me for is untrue, or she asked me to do it that particular way, for example her son was in charge of painting baseboards and trim! She didn't want to pay $50 for having the existing switch moved, so I didn't have to cut into trim.
Bathroom plumbing wasn't roughed in, I was mislead, when I went to give the estimate, couldn't even get into room, it was piled with furniture up to the ceiling! Had to cut up concrete to do the work, huge job!
Anyhow, I don't want to write more about this, because it makes me sick to my stomach, that people like this exist and they even get away with it .
PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS - I would be happy to share the many references who have been very pleased with my work in the past over 10 years in Calgary. I'm very proud of my workman-ship, ethics and attention to detail.
Just ask- I would like the opportunity to prove my well-honed skills on your renovation.
Also if you have questions about this bad experience in my business life, that consumed the better of 5 years... I'd be able to answer any of them: before & after pictures, documentation, court order, all proving my side of the story!
