At the beginning AV Contracting sounds very professional, but.....
Here is my story:
Once it came to taping, sanding and painting - it's over. Alan (the owner) is starting to talk about standards in this industry and from his point of view scratches and not good enough sanding is permitted by standards of sub division. In addition, he is not professional in taping.
If you still decided to work with AV Contracting, do NOT pay him never money in front. 20% only at the end of the job.
Every job that I take I have a contract in place with a payment and work schedule layed out to protect both the client and my company. A week into the job Zak told me that he may not have enough money to finnish the job and that we may have to put the job on hold. I advised him that I will work with him and if he sees that he does not have enough money to continue, we will put the job on hold. Everything was great until my final payment was to be collected. I arrived at his home expecting a check, as per our agreement. he refused to pay me. Zac still owes me over 30% of money for this job.The job that he got was almost complete with just touch ups and a little sanding left. I believed that Handy Canadian was a reliable source for both contractor and customer, but clearly it is not. I asked them to verify my contract and to ask the client for pictures of my work, which if they would have verified would have never allowed such a comment to be posted. I have been in this business for over 10 years and I have a great reputation and a great relationship with all my clients. I have not been payed for my work, Zak must feel that by saying my work is not up to his standard I shouldn't get paid. The truth is he did not have the money to have this project completed and my lack in judgement has left my company in the hole for thousands of dollars. He has not provided any proof (pictures) to support his claim, had he provided pictures, his claims would be irrelevant. I run an honest company, I show up to work everyday on schedule and I get the job completed to professional standards. Unfortunately this website gives scammers live Zak an oppurtunity to make any comment they like real or not.
Av Contracting repaired my fence for me in late June of this year(2012). They were always early and worked very efficiently. My fence was in great need of repair and Alan, the owner of the company gave me an excellent price and his work quality was impeccable. I would recommend him with my highest recommendation.My fence is as good as new if not better.
