We hired this contractor to bring in, and over-see, others to do such home renovations as cabinetry, carport and storage room reconstruction, electrical re-wiring, drywalling, etc.
We were given a very firm estimate of $24,000. The work went on for months and months, far longer than it needed to. The house was made filthy, items were damaged, work was done and then, redundantly, re-done. The contractor refused to write anything down. He promised us time and again we were on track for the final cost. Later on he informed us that it could be a little more than estimated but absolutely promised it would be no more than $27,000. Then he blind-sided us with a final invoice of $36,000. The whole situation was appalling. We were used.
