Concrete work, Tree Removal

We had Michael and his crew do some more work. After he did our waterproofing (noted earlier), he also did our front porch. To date (2 years later) it is still NOT complete. The railing sagged after about a month. He had promised to re-do it but never came through. It is very unprofessional looking.

Michael did some concrete work for which he asked us for more money than the original quote. This seems to be a constant theme with Michael. The work was done fine.

He also cut down a tree in our front yard. He again asked us for more money than originally quoted which ultimately was VERY high compared to others we later found out. Also, our neighbours were rather upset because he did not inform them when he tied stabilizer straps to their porch.

Lastly, there is still bits and bobs left on our property from all his jobs. We had wood left on our porch for 2 years that he only recently took.

While I like Mike, I would no longer use him after using him for many odd jobs. After a job is done his price is always higher. He does not follow through on his word to finish certain things which were not finished ie our railing and leaves things on the site (which my wife does not like).

Now that we have used other trades/contractors we would rather recommend them.

Waterproofing

Mike and his crew waterproofed our basement which was damp.
He does general work ie everything. This was our first experience with Mike Stewart.
He and his crew worked long hours to get the job done quickly. To date...our basement is dry. He did a good job.

He also rebuilt our front porch. He did not properly finish the railing. It sags, looks terrible. He promised to re-do it for free (we would pay for any new materials used). We are still waiting after 2 YEARS.

His quotation skills were very sub par. This was done in 2011. His final price was very different than original quote. We were not kept up to date during job. His original quote was not thorough.

We later used him for another job. He again changed the price after the job was complete. We agreed to pay him the higher amount.

We were reasonably happy at the time as we assume there is give and take in a business relationship. We also assumed the problems were one-off issues. We assumed Mike would come back to fix the railing, to remove junk he left (unused wood was left on our porch for 2 years). In retrospect, we were overly optomistic.
