Dejan's behaviour was appalling. I have been told falsehoods and intentionally misled. He left the job incomplete - and still demanded to be paid.
In his mind every challenge was my problem, not his. After agreeing a price and planting a dumpster on my lawn he sawed a huge branch off of a City-owned tree illegally so that he could have access.
My drawings say existing HVAC to remain. Dejan removed all of the duct work in the basement without telling me. Having disrupted it, I needed to bring it up to code. I have had to pay for the design, permitting and installation of and entirely new heating system for my house - which will be over $20k before it's done.
After dry cutting new opening in the brick foundation and filling my house with dust he tried convince me that wet cutting masonry did not exist. I finished this work myself using a wet saw.
Near the end he said did not have the money to finish the job and threatened to quit to get more money. Finally, he left, with the job incomplete and an unmarked dumpster on my lawn that he refused to move.
Now, months later, my engineer tells me Dejan messed up the first phase so badly that the job required engineering supervision – and could I pay him.
