I had hired Dan Bildhauer to install the roof trusses, doors, windows, and stairs, as well as to complete a few other minor things for a house that I am building. My original framer, who had started the job, wasn't able to complete it, for personal reasons, but was charging me around $10,000 for the entire job, which is what Dan had agreed to complete it for. We had a verbal contract. The work completed was shoddy, at best. None of the windows open or close properly and they all sag (look, not a shim to be found), the stairs weren't secured to the wall and almost collapsed, the telepost(s) installation is a joke (both of them don't even make contact with the beam nor are they secured; see picture), etc., and he refused to do anything about it. Six month later, I get an invoice for almost $52,000, which included a ton fabricated items (ie charging me for a drop down ceiling in the garage that doesn't exist (see picture), materials, that he claims he provided, which he never did, etc., etc., and a year's worth of interest charges, which included both past and future (4 months) interest totaling around $10,000. In his invoice he even charges me GST on all that interest interest! He refused to even discuss the false claims with me and threatened me with a lien if I didn't pay him right away. Having never been in a situation like this and not wanting the house liened, I offered to pay him $15,000 for everything, that same day, which he considered an "insult". He then proceeded to improperly lien my home the next business day (outside of the 45 day mark) with no discussion or attempt to come to some sort of resolution. Now, in addition to having to fix his costly work deficiencies, and all the troubles the false lien has caused me, I also have to deal with this crook in court. Do yourselves a favour and avoid this company and it's owners at all costs.
