I hired Auric Construction to build me a detached garage and replace my parking pad.
The garage was started in August, 2015 and is still incomplete. That was 1 year and 2 months ago.
They poured the parking pad cement in late fall and it was spalling (surface cracks) after the first freeze/thaw cycle that winter. Auric blamed the cement plant, but made zero attempts to fix the problem. He just stopped talking to me when I would bring it up.
Auric isn't what you think it is. Auric Construction is essentially one man working a second job. Sean Larkin does not have a regular crew, but will make some phone calls for you and then hire random sub-contractors, friends and moonlighters. I have no idea if any of the people on my project were actual professionals or just buddies. There will be no foreman on your project to ensure any type of standard is kept. His subcontractors will show up when they want to, sometimes very late at night, and disappear quick. The subcontractors hired by Auric left my project without a word when they ran out of supplies - and never returned. I informed Auric (Sean Larkin) that the siding was still incomplete, the shingles hadn't been properly installed and some damaged wood was used in my wall, but nothing was ever done about it. It wasn't long after that when he stopped returning my phone calls and texts. He even ignored requests for communication from my lawyer. It has been over 6 months since I have spoke or received a text message from him.
Auric Construction screwed up so many times, I can't detail every mistake in this review. Long story short, DO NOT HIRE Auric Construction in Lethbridge. He and his subcontractors do not care about your job, they only want your money. He will make lots of promises he has no intention of honouring. If you complain too much or his subcontractors make too many mistakes on the job site, Sean will ignore your calls.
I had to hire another contractor to complete the job I already paid Auric for so I wouldn't have to go through another winter with a badly shingled roof and incomplete siding.
