Please contact me with any stories about carm. He has a history and can be put in jail if we can show he has a pattern of starting work and not finishing and taking cash. He ripped me off for over $5000.
Similar to the others that have posted reviews here, Santino/Carm has deceived several clients and colleagues. He agrees to do the work and then fails to complete, or even start in some cases, the work he was paid to do.
Please stay clear of Santino/Carm as he will waste your time and money,
Do yourself a favor and stay clear of Chim Chimney (Ontario) and it's so called owner - Carmelo who also goes by Carm or Santino. Without telling you the whole story, what I can say is - this company/owner will only take your cash and use it for his personal use, will leave you with unfinished work; give you a bunch of empty promises and not to mention a lot of stress.
Note: I'm sure there are others consumers out there with a similar story so don't be shy - please share. The more reviews the better chance we have protecting others!
I really wish the Government would focus on these bottom feeders and start helping to protect the consumers.
Carm/Santino - you owe a lot of people money and I hope it catches up with you.
Santino took a $350 deposit to remove my chimney and then never showed causing a delay and a bunch of headaches getting my roof re-done.
I would also like to point out that the address provided for his "business" is also fraudulent. Henderson Ave. addresses don't hit 50, much less oooh get this 4567.... I guess 1234 was taken.
