The contractor disappeared for two months half-way through the job with last minute notice. Before he left, he asked me to drive about an hour from town to go pick up materials for him. The first half of the ceiling was installed with the most minimal care. The final portion that was installed 2.5 months later because his partner “didn’t want to do it”. The final result is so bad I’ve taken it out and hired someone else to redo it. Complete disregard for our space, quality of work and communication. Overall, the most unprofessional and unresponsive contractor I’ve ever hired.
The contractor spent half his time complaining to me about how awful it was installing our basement ceiling and to not tell anyone he did it because he doesn’t want anyone else to know.
Razor blades and garbage were left around our home with pets and small children around. The contractor left saying “sorry about the mess despite me leaving a broom and a vacuum for him!
He did ensure that I sent him an Interac email transfer before leaving the job site however, despite agreeing to cheque or credit card payment before beginning the job.
The contractor stated he was able to install a nicer trim over the t-bar system called StyleStix on our request. When he showed up to install it, he mentioned he didn’t know how it worked, then asked for more money above the quoted price to finish the installation. At the end of the job he then recommended another system we could have used that he was familiar with and offered a nicer finish, but he never suggested it to us as an alternative option which we mentioned we were open to from the start!
I would not recommend this contractor under any circumstance. Ultimately cost us a load of time and money for a partially finished product I could have done better myself.
