We hired Chris to install posts for a deck and he did his job. We were looking for an electrician as well and Chris recommended his friend and he was going to do that part. Chris charged us 350$ to dig a trench and put in a conduit. His friend was supposed to charge 250$ (we never contacted the electrician because Chris did the communication). After the posts were installed, our electrical work was still not done (we were told it would be done the same day) and Chris said his friend would come the following week. Two weeks later, we hadn’t heard from anyone and we called Chris many times but he stopped answering our calls. When we called him private, he answered on the first ring. This was a red flag for us but we were still after him to get the electrician in. Finally, one day this electrician showed up. We asked him to change one thing and he asked for extra money, we agreed to give him that. He said he needed to buy more Material and never came back. Chris wouldn’t answer either. When we finally got in touch with Chris he says his friend was doing us a favour and we shouldn’t be changing things. We were paying for this and have a right to change what we want. Very very disappointed with this guy and the way he handled this. Found him on varage sale and never again with him. He lost a ton of business from us and our family members living in Durham. Beware whom your hire.
