This company rips off its employees and customers. I hired and pre-paid a %50 down payment for a job that barely got started. 3 employees did show up at one point. It was then that I learned that Rick was promising his employees a decent pay but not giving them a cent.. He was always coming up with excuses. I kept in contact with a previous 'business partner' of All About Construction only to learn Rick took off with thousands of dollars to renew his wedding vows!
So he didn't pay his workers, he didn't buy material and didn't complete any jobs.
I'm not sure what kind of person it takes to burn so many people but Rick is him!
Stay away from this company as a customer, client or employee. And please people report him he needs to pay for what he has done.
Well it is very hard to explain all that we have gone through with this Company-at this point in time they completed to 85% the first contract (site clean-up and removal of junk), and 50% the window install contract-did nothing but charge us and give us a bogus refund cheque for the last project we signed on for them to do (siding and shingles). Like everyone says-Richard and his father Bert are great guys but they hire non-certified untrained workers and leave them in "charge" when they should not! Would love to get our money back but assume it is long gone-all around we have photos to back up all of their work and incomplete jobs-DO NOT TRUST these guys to measure, order or install anything!!!! Hope the young guys that were trying very hard to learn the trade get into a better outfit than this one!
Please be very careful with this company. They are a very shifty organization, Richard Pombert is a nice fellow and understands construction; however, he allows his "employees" to run job sites which have little to no experience. Richard is very Courteous and will always have an explanaiton for everything.
We hired Richard and All About Construction in July 2011 to install Vinyl Siding, Decks and Rails. We purchased all the material in July and as of December 2, 2011 we have a 50% complete Vinyl Sided Building, No Rails and No decks.
Richard hired sub-contractors (Verbally) and did not pay any of them for up to 6 weeks. Many of his "employees" have no employment contracts and have also been unpaid, I have been contacted by 5 of them. Our building is subject to liens from the sub-contractors for which we have had to pay. Richard hired sub-contractors at a rate hirer than that of which we were to pay him. In my personal opinion it appears to be a pre-meditaded scheme, however, we will allow the Police to get to the bottom of it.
We were invoiced material that was sent to other job sites and material that was delivered to our job site has been taken off site by All About Construction.
Richard was evicted from his office location and has changed all this phone number, his current number is 587-926-3381 and one of his former employees has indicated he is in the process of moving to Northern Ontario.
WCB has also sent us a formal demand for payment.
Anyone who requires additional information or wishes to share any information on Richard - please feel free to contact me.
All About Construction (AA Construction) is a business that should be avoided if you want your work done promptly, as promised in their contract, and correctly! My father signed a contract with them and paid for 50% of the total cost at the same time. Clint Lechelt, the estimator and person who wrote the contract, assured my father that he would oversee the work and be dropping by to check on the progress. That never happened. The contract stated the job would commence Sep. 7/11 and be completed by Sep. 10/11. No one showed up, or even telephoned on Sep. 7. On Sep. 8 a worker showed up after 4 p.m., with no tools or material, and left by 5 p.m. On Sep 9, a Friday, two men came after 10 a.m. and one, named Josh, left for 1.5 hours for a doctor's appointment. When Josh returned he lazed in a chair on the patio and talked with the other worker. My father had to supply a ladder as they didn't bring one adequate to reach the height (specified in the contract). They both disappeared at 3 p.m. No workers came the next week and I called AA several times and spoke with Clint, Paul, and Deborah (the receptionist).
They told me everything was done and ready to paint. My father reported that not even half of the work was done and it certainly was not ready for painting. They agreed to have workers come out again on Friday, Sep. 16, but when they didn't show and I called again, I was told Josh had a "family emergency" that morning (another Friday problem). After many more phone calls and assurances received from Paul and the receptionist (which never materialized) some workers finally came to finish the work the last week of September. Of course, they were also told to pick up a cheque for the remainder of the contract before they left. So a 3 day contract turned into 3 weeks of frustration and time spent on the phone with AA Construction for me, and anger and anxiety for my father, who was told to expect them to show up each day or he would receive a phone call, as promised by Paul. He never received any phone calls from anyone at AA Construction. Since the painting was finally completed in cold temperatures last week (versus the warm temperatures we had from Sep. 7 to 10) , the house will most likely have to be re-scraped/sanded and repainted next year! Needless to say, we do not recommend All About Construction. They are the most unreliable business I have ever dealt with. I also believe they charged my father double what the work they did was worth!
I am sorry you feel this way - but you will not have to pay to redo it next year - if the paint job peals or has problems you have a 3 year warranty with us and we will look after the issues and in actual fact the job should have been 1/3rd higher than it was , also we did give Lorne a seniors discount and at the end of the job we took another 300.00 off for the inconvenience he faced, the work got done and it looks great . we did some extra work with the brown stain that we did not charge for as well , and as well we can't help the weather (can't paint in the wind/rain/fog ect.) again thank you for the work.

All About Construction Corp. has received 2 employee and/or sub-contractor complaints
I worked for Mr. Pombert a few years back. i can atest to the fact that he does not pay his employees, he runs this company well he is on AISH, the work he does is very poor. he will hire people from temp agencies who have no experiance to save on cost. he charges a $10 a day tool rental fee, and also collects a fee from his employees for a "party fund" every week. Mr. Pombert continually takes advantage of customers and employees on a reguler basis. I quit working for him when he tried paying me $200 for a 45 hour work week, when my pay rate was $17 an hour. some of those hours were for keeping fire watch at a building on 124 street beside the Bosten Pizza. it is estamated that he still owes me over $600. i made a report with the labour board, and when they contacted him he lied to them about the tool rental fees and "party fund" so they left it at that. Mr Pombert can NOT be trusted, and should never be left to do any kind of renovation or construction work on ANY property! I will continue to boycot any and all (and there are many) companys this man owns and operates.
