We faced a similar situation with Jason Caplan: shoddy work and overpriced quote. We too asked that material costs be re-evaluated and this was not negotiable. We were informed that renovation debris removal was our concern ! When approached Jason was rude and arrogant. A contractor that made our renovation a two week nightmare. Despite quoting a 3 week job he was finished nearly a week early. We decided to hire another contractor to continue renovations as there are many others far more reasonable and personable.
