We provided bins for them for the clean-up job for their new premises on Bowen Rd..... To cut a long story short we have not received a penny of the money they owe us. They gave us the run around for weeks, Shana Jones always saying she couldn't pay us we would have to see Marty Sherwood, messages left and never returned....... Etc etc....
We finally found out they had left town with debts everywhere.....
We had initially used their services to paint the exterior of one of our properties in Nanaimo and although we were eventually satisfied with the work the way they wanted so many "on account" payments while they were doing the work should have warned us that perhaps there was a problem with cash flow!!!........
Marty Sherwood/Shana Jones happily took my deposit. Cashed my cheque and left town. Never did any work or ordered any supplies. Do not return my calls. I have a contractor Agreement but it means nothing. BE AWARE has started another business. Keeps moving and changing phone numbers.
Met with Pat. Started on date named. Workers were pleasant to us, but as time passed, we began to hear grumbling that the painters had not been paid for a month and Pat had left for vacation without paying the other workers. This caused us great concern. Pat never contacted us after receiving early payment, despite repeated attempts to contact him. A final walkabout of the project never occurred as promised as per contract. Items remain unfinished to our satisfaction. Nails were left everywhere by the carpenters. The plants were heavily damaged. The yard was left in a mess and it took over ten days for the company to pick up the pile of rubble. We paid for cedar that was then taken by both the carpenter and the painter at the end of the job, and that was the only reason the cleanup was done. Six weeks post completion, we have yet to hear from Pat. There was also bickering between the painter and the carpenter , bad mouthing in front of us, the people that have hired them. Poor labor relations all the way around. Skirt around the deck poorly done. Gates don't latch. Arbor crooked. JOB NOT COMPLETED.
Work never completed. Barry the contractor that I work with does not know his paint and in the painting business that is not good. We asked for a specific paint to use and he said sure no problem. Then he turns around and make excuses and tried to get me to agree for a lesser quality paint. (switch and bait) They did not do what they agree on the contract: they only applied single coat instead of double. They did not prime all bare wood as per contract. All cracks and holes not sealed. They missed a section during power wash and when I pointed it out they just painted it over without cleaning it it. Doors where not painted as per contract. Paint stared bubbling before they finish painting. Damage to the property. Until now work still not completed and no further communications from Barry.
