Please do not hire this guy!!!! He did our deck last year, never showed up on time. We advanced him money. He always had excuses. Mostly family emergencies. He called one day and said he had a family emergency and could not come for a few days, I was out driving and saw him and his crew working another job. He water proofed my deck and now its leaking in 6spots. I have to tear down the ceiling. To much more to write. Worst contractor and lies about everything.
PLEASE DO NOT HIRE THIS GUY!!! He is a fraudster. Not to mention he charges 30 to 40 per cent higher than the competition. I should have known he was a fraud when he asked for more tan 50 per cent up front. I should have done my homework and read the reviews, but he lives just a few blocks from my house.
Luckily, he finished the big part of the job, which was the back fence, but never came back to finish the remainder of the job. We paid for the material up front and just took off with the money.
We went by his house to discuss this with and he has been evicted from his him. What a shocker!! He scammed his landlord too!!
Take it from me, whatever you do, DO NOT!! HIRE THIS MAN!!!
This guy is a scammer! Stay away. Took my deposit in mid September and have not seen him since. His texts say family emergency and other lies. I am issuing a statement of claim, but more importantly I will report to the police for fraud. It appears his actions are premeditated as the other reviews have indicated, this happens frequently.
Found this guy on kijiji and he came out quickly and did a quick quote. He told me he could be there Friday, that would be August 4th. I paid a deposit, then spent the next two nights clearing my backyard so they wouldn't have to work around anything. No one showed up on Friday. Saturday he called asking for the starting payment so he could order my lumber which I sent him and was told they'd show up that afternoon. No one showed. They finally arrived Tuesday and by Wednesday, August 9th, I had 5/6th of a fence with a gate, the final section being left out to accommodate the deck. Since then I have tried emailing, texting, calling, left messages and have been ignored completely. I have multiple emails stating we'll be there next week, next Tuesday, this weekend, he also took a deposit from my neighbour and has done nothing and is ignoring him. Brutal.

Daves Wood Scapes has received employee and/or sub-contractor complaints
Complaint: I want to state exactly how he works. He makes an appointment to "size the job" and in his own words, "if they have high end cars in driveway, price gets so. They can afford to pay it".
He makes people pay upfront, a large portion, then wants more and more money. He hires drug addicts and alcoholics. He doesn't show up for days. And let's not forget another important factor. He doesn't pay his crew. He owes close to a grand to me alone, and been 2 weeks already. I told him if I wasn't paid, I wasn't working for him. The quality of the work is not what is paid for. He will give plenty of excuses on why isn't at job site. Never deal with him. Am trying to save others from being ripped off by the scamming. I only worked a short time. And learned alot not to trust him.
