I found Calgary Renovation Xperts on Kijiji and contacted them to quote my father on getting the interior of his Garage finished with Drywall, mudding/taping, and painting.
The owner of Calgary Renovation Xperts named Ray Gorzen convinced my senior citizen father to sign a contract asking for money upfront and more money until the job was half completed. Ray's brother and partner/accomplice is named Glen Gorzen, and they have several similar reno companies in Calgary. Ray was the painting expert and Glen was the drywall guy. Both ripped off my 75 year old father in this home reno scam.
Well the job was NOT completed at all. The little that was done was below home handyman grade. I have had several new contractors quoting to fix the damage that Ray Gorzen and Glen have done. They all pointed out the mistakes and lousy workmanship and have told us that the work that was done has to be tore out because the vapor barrier wasn't put in right.
Ray Gorzen kept meeting with my father during the reno, asking for more and more money and saying he would not complete the job until he was paid more money. Well, Ray Gorzen took my Dad's money (cash) and took off with his money. Ray was paid $1500 in cash by my father to finish, but they never even finished half of what they were paid to do and what they were signed by a contract to finish, including materials etc,.
They stuck vapor barrier up and some uneven chunks of drywall sheeting and that was it. It is crooked, and not done properly or professionally.
They did not finish the job, and they still took my Dad's money. Promising him they would complete it the following day if my Dad paid him more money. They did not show up and when we tried contacting Ray Gorzen (The owner) he ignored our emails and our phone calls.
The little work that Ray Gorzen and his brother Glen and crew did is horrible and must be taken down and redone. I do not recommend this company or this person or his brother that came to do some of the work. They literally scammed my Dad and I hope other seniors and good hardworking people don't get ripped off by these criminals.
If you have any information on these people please contact crimestoppers and the BBB. They are a scam.
