Concrete Walkway

They did not finish the job and demanded payment from my wife who was home alone with my 15 month old daughter while I was at work, once the concrete was poured. Left dangerous safety hazards in my yard and a huge pile of debris on my lawn. They also have not come back to take the forms off my concrete walkway. Pod $3500 for this “service”

Read before booking with this company!!!

We have to sue him to get our money back.

Started the job, but failed to finish it. Excuse after excuse and as soon as he has your money, you will only hear more excuses.

Began the job on April 28. Backyard was torn up that day. They were suppose to pour the first half on Sunday, with the remainder on Monday. It rained Sunday, so we expected it to be pushed to Monday/Tues. Frank kept pushing it back to rain days. It was 3 weeks and finally we asked for our money back and he gave us $1500 with the remainder to come weekly for the next few weeks. I think we got lucky. Looks like another client is out the whole lot.

If Frank from Italian Concrete and Design asks for ANY money upfront, please call Service Alberta at 1-877-427-4088 and tell them that he has taken funds without having a prepaid contractors license. He is aware that he cannot take ANY money upfront, but continues to do so.

NOT RECOMMENDED

I signed a contract with Frank to replace my driveway for $7000. Based on the contract I paid him $2000 at the contract signing date. After 2 days he came and removed my driveway’s concrete and put metal bars and gravels. I paid him $2100 at that day. He was supposed to come and pour the concrete in 1 or 2 days, but he didn’t show up. I called him every few days for two weeks and even I asked him if the problem is money to compensate him. Every time he said “he will come tomorrow or at the weekend and finish it”. I realized he is playing and do not intend to finish my work. I mailed him a Notice and gave him one week to come and finish my driveway otherwise I will disqualify his company for my job and hire another company to finish it and sue his company for the difference amount I will pay to the other company. Again, he promised to come and finish it, but didn’t show up! At the end of the “one week time”, I called him, and he rejected to finish my job with no reason! He passed the phone to his dad, Mateo (who owns “Lake Come General Construction Ltd.” concrete company). When I explained my story, Mateo apologized for his son’s behaviour and promised to finish my work in one week. At the end of the second one week, I called Mateo, but he also rejected to finish my work!!!! Now I am going to send Frank another Notice and disqualify his company for my work and hire another company to finish my work. I will reserve my rights to sue his company for the followings:
- Breach of Contract as he refused to complete my job based on the contract.
- Negligent Contractor as he didn’t show up for one moth to finish my work.
- Put the safety of my family and pedestrians in danger for one month as he left metal bars on the ground and next to the walkway for one month.
- Damage to my property and left it unfixed.
RECOMMENDATIONS:
If you intend to hire a contractor, consider the followings:
- Always sign a written contract with clear scope of work, cost, date of start and finish and termination conditions.
- If the contractor requests progressive payments, he must be licensed by Service Alberta.
- Make sure contractor has Workers’ Compensation Board (WCB) coverage.
- Always text or email the contractor any verbal communications for his confirmation and your records and take pictures before, during and after each stage of work.

concrete sidewalk

Frank and crew did a good job at a fair price. They were very efficient and take pride in their work. They had some great suggestions for unique drainage issues on the project.

Driveway

We had our driveway completed by Italian Concrete and Design and couldn’t be happier. They were punctual and reliable, finishing the job on time and as quoted. Finished product is beautiful and truly of high quality. We would HIGHLY recommend this company to others. We would be sure to use them again in the future.
