I hired John Ramos /DBD Westcoast Construction Ltd on April 25, 2017 for my partially constructed home, the completion date was set out on October 18, 2017.
John Ramos knew my situation with the previous builder, but he repeatedly over billed me and double billed me by making up invoices and time sheets, I never stopped fighting with him for the invoices during the construction period, he left my job site with no activity at all for over 2.5 months, I kept calling, texting and emailing him, he didn’t care at all until my lawyer called him On June 27, 2017. On Sept 18, 2017, John Ramos abandoned my site.
John Ramos has no ability to hire qualified trades, he hired someone and caused more issues to my house, I had to hire other trades to fix the problem later. John Ramos abandoned my job site on September 18, 2017 and terminated the contract on Nov. 8, 2017, liened my house on the same day, John Ramos caused significant delay for my project, I’m still living in the rental house and paying the rent and all other additional living expenses and construction costs.
John Ramos took my payment for HPO, but he never enrolled my home for home warranty, he used my money paid his membership to National Home Warranty, the job started by the end of April 2017, the building permit was obtained in September until he hired a new site manager, basically he was illegally running my site without permit.
Despite I overpaid John Ramos MORE THAN $6600, he liened my house based on his own calculation of the management fee he received from me, and he didn’t pay Country Lumber (the material supplier), they liened my house too, they also commenced legal action against DBD Westcoast Construction Ltd and John Ramos personally, they also sued 11 people including home owners and businesses at Supreme Court in the amount of $49,321.57. As far as I know John Ramos is involved in multiple lawsuits at Supreme Court, I have two small claims against John Ramos DBD Westcoast Construction Ltd and his cabinet company called Westcoast Designer Cabinets at Provincial Court in Richmond, John Ramos took my cabinet deposit in the amount around $27,000, never gave me the cabinets and refused to pay my money back, even though my lawyer sent demand letter to John Ramos, he still refused to pay me back, I am suing John Ramos personally and his two companies.
John Ramos has been using his company to do the so called “business “, he takes money from people and never gets the job done, every time the trades ask him for the payment, he will run to the clients and try to take money from them in order to pay the trades, and some of the trades and suppliers never get paid for their work or the materials they supplied.
John Ramos also stole my house design photos and put up on his multiple websites and social media claiming that is his "recent project" to attract more customers, that is pure scam and fraud!
In his comments below saying I didn't pay 2 invoices, where is the proof? the 2 site managers left his company because they did not want to get involved in his scam, we ares till good friends.
John Ramos was the one using foul language towards me in his email and text messages, even in front of police officers!!! Everyone knows him call him a con artist, he always makes up stories and always saying he was trying to "help" people, all you can see his version of "help" is lie after lie, he even lied in front of the judge in court! I have all the evidence!!!!!
The breakdown with Aimee started when she refused to pay 2 invoices that were well over due and as a result I sent her notice that we were no longer continuing on the project with her, and were canceling her HPO as a result as well. I also left the permit in my name for months to try and help her out so that she could continue on with the project, but after seeing what kind of a person she was we withdrew that as well. This woman started off as being what we thought was going to be a nice client, and ended up seeing what she is really like which is a complete nut bar along with being very aggressive and the use of foul language just pours out of her. I'm the second Builder she has gone through and the house is only average size and were not even up to drywall in the house yet. The 2 Site Supervisors that I had on the house begged me to pull them off the project because of how she is, and so she has gone through 2 companies and several site managers and the house is only half way and so what does that tell you about this person.
We had an additional bathroom installed, tankless hot water heater installed, office and bedroom enclosed, furnace moved and laundry enclosed.
With most renovations, plans change due to necessity or desire... issues that are so typical in renovations. John addressed our anxieties directly and caringly. He was accommodating to our needs and included us in every step of the work. His crew are courteous and professional....addressing solutions to obstacles in a timely manner. Our basement is now a practical, functional, aesthetically pleasing space. Our son was very grateful that they highly prioritized his bedroom.
Great crew to work with. I had a great experience. I would work with them again.
