Stay away from this contractor.
Gabriel Kaan (also goes by name of firstname.lastname@example.org) of supposedly ARO Construction and/or Vilati Homes reached out to complete some fence-work with gates (including hardware), and deck staining.
Gabriel Kaan was very friendly at first, but unfortunately once awarded the job, that's where things turned. Gabriel Kaan is pure fraud and here's why...
Gabriel and his co worker Sean were extremely slow in tackling the job and had a "couldn't careless" attitude half way through the job - in which 50% of the funds was requested and paid. Granted Gabriel/Sean knew what they were doing with the actual carpentry efforts for the fence work, they highly lacked efficiency, tidiness, timeliness and basically made this project a disaster. I basically wanted them out and for his company to be gone and done with literally a few days into the job.
Everyday, they were extremely late to begin work and left the premises very untidy. Excuse after excuse with every aspect of the project from waiting on an auger, to taking 3 hours to pick up products from Home Depot. Unprofessional quotes all the way to invoicing should have been my red flag.
Save your time and money and move on. Everyone has a bad contractor story to learn from and this was mine. Luckily mine, wasn't a huge project.
Be ULTRA CAREFUL with this shady contractor as they also go under the names of ARO Construction one day and Vilati Homes. Both are supposedly located at 20 Nuggett Ave in Toronto/North York.
Ask him for a business card if he shows up. He can't even provide that properly. Also, make note, Another member of ARO (Arun) stated that Gabriel was not with the company, when in fact he still is. Shows the fraudulence... team fraudulence.
Apparently Gabriel recently graduated Carpentry, so he'll use this as a tactic to win you over. Don't fall for it like I did.
Aro Construction did such a nice job. I couldn't believe how fast they removed our old flooring and how efficient they were. They really worked with us on timing and were very flexible with our schedules. We had them refinish our 100 year old heart pine floors and they look beautiful. The were reasonably priced especially for the quality of the work they performed. We recommend them to all of our friends and would use them again. The provided us with professional paint sampling in home, and painted our home to our satisfaction.
Thank you Raza for the wonderful review.
