It has taken me almost a year to write this review. If I had written it in the summer of 2019 I would have been too irate. So I waited until now.
Wayne and his crew were respectful and the constant delays to building my porch were due to constant rain and not Wayne's fault. I haave however a number of concerns to share.
1) Gravel was delivered ahead of time and I had not been informed of it's delivery. After the porch had been poured, said gravel hadn't been used and remained on my driveway for at least 3 weeks. This, despite my repeated emails and voicemails asking him to come pick it up. The only reason Wayne came to pick it up was because I said I would write a scathing review on Homestars.
2) In excavating the area to frame the porch, all dirt soil, debris etcetera was taken to my back yard and poured into one of my gardens as well as an already overflowing compost area. I thought when someone came to do this kind of work they were supposed to take what had been excavated away!
3) Wayne showed me a few colour palettes and we matched them to the brick on my house. I had chosen a sand colour according to the palette swatches he showed me. The porch that was poured is pink. I expressed my disappointment at the time only to be told it would fade. Nine months later and after one winter it is still pink! And, I hate it.
4) The concrete pour splashed all over the bottom framework of my front window as well as the existing concrete door tread leading into the house. It was not cleaned up and remains to this day an ugly glued on concrete mess.
5) The inside 90 degree corner between the porch and step up to the front door was not smoothed out properly. Gravel is readily apparent. To me that indicates a shoddy job or lack of skill.
Wayne and company, if you read this and are willing to fix the mistakes including the ugly pink colour of the porch and the concrete over splash then maybe I could promote you and your business in a better light. As I wrote above, if I had written this review last summer when I was very angry it would have been much nastier.
