We hired a person whose business card indicated that he was the principle of this company to finish our basement and apply for all the required permits as my wife needed to carry her business in the basement and for that we needed all the paperwork in place and all the code requirement for that matter met.
We paid him separately for the permit and preparing the drawings.
As me and my wife were always busy at work and away from home we put our complete and unconditional trust in this person and he carried on the work.
We constantly questioned him during the work in regards the documents and permits at all stages of the work and he always responded that he has all the necessary paperwork’s and he claimed that inspector has come at such a day and everything is in order and after the final inspections I will deliver all the necessary documents.
The job got completed and still we had not seen any paperwork from him and finally about 3 weeks ago he ended the communication with us (through text messages and phone) particularly when he found out that we have gone to Town of Oakville and ESA (Electrical authorities) where we were told that there are no records of any application for any permit.
Now we have to start over hire electrician to obtain ESA approval which meant lots of money spent and they found lots of flaws in his work and many issues which were not up to code.
We have to do the same with HVAC ,...and spend lots of money there.
We have to spend lots of money to bring the basement up to the code for fire rated items which were missed by Antonio.
This review is to provide enough necessary information to public and provide awareness to the consumers hoping to avoid issues we are facing right now.
On the other hand there is no address for this company and the website gives you nothing to track and find these people.
