phil from breakaway installed our pre purchased and pre stained siding in november of 2008. i was very happy with the crew and the job that they did. the following spring, where the siding that had been caulked in a board- and - batten style, the wood had shrunk and the caulking was up to and inch away from where it was supposed to be. phil assured us that this would be corrected. at the same time, the summer of 2009, we engaged phil to excavate our front yard. we were very clear that we had a very limited budget for this project and needed as close to an exact price as possible. he gave us a price of $2500 which we then clarified on numerous occasions to be the complete cost. he assured that it would be. during the job, one of his excavators cut our external conduit off of the wall. he assured us he would fix this. we paid his bill of 2500 on completion but then recieved a bill from his trucker for $1300 for trucking services. our understanding was that the 2500 included all fees that were necessary to complete the job. we refused to pay the bill, resulting in the trucker putting a lean on our house. we negotiated with phil and offered to pay half of the bill if he would fix the siding issue and repair the broken conduit. he verbally agreed to do this. he was supposed to come over to the house but we have never heard from or seen him since. it has been at least eight months since we last spoke. i really like phil and feel that he is a good man but wish that our job was handled differently and had a diffenent outcome.
