Beware bad business!!!
Not good work at all. Spent very little time doing work, yet took half a year and even tried asking for more money after he was paid in full. Very disappointed. Showed up when ever in the day and has yet to put in a full day once. Didn't order what he said he would, only to change his mind and good luck getting doors now. Also charged for vent cleaning and didn't even attempt to get that done. Also charged an obscene amount for cabinets and flooring and now we aren't even sure it will get done. Will most likely have to pay someone else to finish the job hes been paid to do. Claimed he needed money upfront for things he didn't even follow through with. A huge disaster and the worst stress I've ever experienced, took advantage of an unexperienced single mother of two with no remorse. Had to have someone step in and take over due to the lack of decorum shown by Mr Sanford. No person should ever have to experience that!!

I would like to have met you in person Donna to discuss this with you instead of having never met you before and getting to know you in this way.
I want to start by saying I tried working with you're daughter to get a result she wanted on a limited budget. I added and removed walls, which were not a part of the original plan. I added a laundry room, kitchen and went from a standing shower to adding a full tub, at my own cost.
The original cabinets that I was suppose to use were wrecked during removal by another company. I told your daughter that if she were to buy the cabinets I would install them at no extra cost, even though there was going to more of them and used in a completely different orientation than the original cabinets, which is more labour and again at my cost.
The orignal standing shower was in pretty bad shape, and we agreed that it should be replaced, I told her that if she bought the tub and surround, I would install at my cost. The decision to buy them took a long time, so I purchased the tub myself.
The expense of redoing the floors was neither contracted by me or was I involved in dealing with the floors. The only conversation I had with the homeowner regarding the floors was for me to leave your daughter my largest hammer drill, so that she could fix a few spots where it was lifting, to make it easier for floor installation.
I sent your daughter to charge on my account the paint choices she wanted, which was more than twice the original paint cost, and because I was supposed to only repaint to the original flat white, instead of the 5 colours she chose which is also more labour, we agreed that if I bought her all the material to paint, she would handle the painting. I don't like to install doors before the walls are painted and never did so, because the walls were not painted.
Many of the delays were brought on by poor communication. I believe that had all parties been involved from the beginning this situation could have been avoided.
As far as I know, the tub surround has been ordered and the cabinets have been ordered. I would like to finish and install these. I'm not sure who has stepped in the take over but if allowed, I'd like the opportunity to complete this.
