Don't trust him. He will be very personable & professional first time and will ask you for advance (one third), by sending you an written contract. Wont show up for job and wont answer back you. I paid him $1200 almost 3 months back and no job done.
This guy is personable but not honourable. He took full payment for the job and left us with huge hole and pile of dirt. He never finished the job, after be bugged him he suggested we buy a shovel. The person he had disconnect the AC did such a hack job it cost us a lot more to re connect. He took deposit from our friend for snow removal and never came once and after numerous requests never returned her deposit. Please learn from our mistake and only pay him upon completion.
