Electrical contractor to be avoided at all costs

Avoid this company like the plague! I have never met a bunch of more incompetent tradesmen in my life. They worked as if they were not a team, one guy installing wires and the others spending hours trying to figure out what they connected. The owner and apparently the only qualified electrician was never on site except for occasional visits in the morning and hence no coordination took place. When I told him his main wiring man would leave the minute he turned his back he said it was no business of mine because he was charging me a fixed amount for the job. But it meant the work went on for well over a month when it could have been done in a matter of days or a week at most. And then he charged me $1500 over what he esitmated mainly because he was paying his men for hours they didn't work. Electrical outlets were left disconneted from any line despite repeatedly telling him about this. The team left for the weekend with the freezer outlet not working. New circuit breakers would blow repeatedly due to overloading on the lines. Light switches and outlets would not work unless another light switch was already on. New outlets in main rooms like the living room were surface mounted rather than recessed because it was too much trouble for his men to do. All in all this job was a comedy of errors worthy of the keystone cops and would actually have been very funny to watch on TV if my wife and I did not have to live through it and pay through the nose for it.
PS: Three years later I am still coming across wires that they left disconnected that are live and pose a danger to human life and the safety of the home.
