We found Russel the owner of Crossline Developments on Kijiji. After contacting, he came to the site and we spoke about the quote. Russel agreed to match a quote we received and begged for the contract due to several of personal issues.
At the start of the project Russel abandoned the given plan and went in a direction of his own for the initial framing. In addition he made errors in the framing of the doors. From there he went on to make countless errors in plumping and tiling. Electrical was incomplete and the finishings were not done. Jobsite garbage was abandoned in my backyard, along with the job.
The contract for the job started in June, and was scheduled to be completed by 30 August 2016. By October, the development had still not been completed. There were countless times when he went AWOL and disappeared for days to weeks; not getting any work done.
He claimed to have extreme health issues (a heart attack). But then 2 days after he came back to work? That doesnt sound right. These are just examples of Russel's excuses that he uses when needed.
Additionally, Russel became very rude when it came to demanding payment before work is even complete. He did not go on to finish the project. He refused to pay workers who he himself hired leaving me to have to pay twice. He is extremely dishonest and he treats clients with such a lack of respect. This is a long account but just the latest in Crossline Development's track record of low quality business. If you chose to hire Russel be prepared for disappointment and stress.
