Oh my god, what a terrible contractor. The hardwood I have installed has started giving cracking sounds within 2weeks time. And I have instructed him to study the possibility of moving the wall between the kitchen and living room and to move the wall if only it is not a load bearing wall. but without any study he, his father hastily demolished the wall (load bearing) and left the site leaving my home without the proper support for a whole night. He didn't even let me know that he has removed the wall. Next day realized his blunder and immediately started fixing the supports and promised to fix his errors and fix the wall again at his own cost. But even after 20 days, he is dragging the work and finally refused to complete the wall and refused to give back the 1000$ deposit he received. Please stay out of this irresponsible and useless contractor.
