With a great regret, I hired Joe to do waterproofing of my house. He skipped many items of the job contract and refused to honor his own written contract. For example based on the contract he had to install a new sump pump but he refused to do so and said the old one is good. Before finishing the job he told me how much I owed him at the end after I had paid him a deposit. I noticed that he was asking too much based on linear footage of the work done. I asked him to do the measurement again in front of me. He did the measurement in front of me and it turned out that it was a couple of thousand dollars off. He reluctantly accepted to correct his number. Whenever I had to mention to him to follow his contract, he simply refused. Based on the agreement he had to dig under my deck for waterproofing and keep the deck intact and safe. Since I could not see under the deck he assured me that he finished the job under the deck and had taken pictures and asked me for full payment. From what I could see at the end, there was still some stuff remained to be done when he asked me to pay him. I told him that I would keep a small portion till he comes back and finishes the job. He insisted and I was trying to avoid an argue. My wife intervened and asked me to avoid him and pay him and hopefully he would come back. But I wish I had not paid him in full. He promised to come back to finish the remaining of the job and send me the report with pictures in 2 days and I paid him. But I found that it was another mistake. In two days I had water leak again and told him about it. He did nothing. I also called him and told him why he does not send me the report and why he is not coming back to finish the job and why he is not coming back to see that it was leaking again. I kept calling numerous times and he never showed up. Eventually he stopped answering our calls. Also, I found that he had ruined my deck and I had to remove the deck which was a damage of $10k for removing the deck and reinstallation. After I removed the deck I noticed that he had not done the waterproofing for half of the area under the deck. I had to hire another contractor and do this job again and pay big bucks again. After 6 weeks he came to my property only to ask me if I had written a bad review about him which I had not at that point and it must be the review before me. He asked me and insisted I remove my review.
