Don Thurston of Thurston Holmes contracting Ltd (OLD name DRT Enterprises LTD) has started to do my walkout after which he took my money left a mess behind , left me short on cash and with a house that was almost written up by the city for safety.
Anyways i am currently taking to court. If you have been in the situation and would like to join the suit cause you have been defrauded of your money, please call me 647-880-1402
I would not hire Don Thurston and DRT Enterprises again. I had 3 concrete steps done for my house, Don Thurston was rude, hanging the phone up on me when I said the work had some mistakes and 2 of the steps cracked 2 days after they took the forms off. Don,s partner came and repaired the 2 steps and it did not look good but I paid him the balance anyway . The third step now has cracks in it about 3 weeks later and I have phoned Don,s partner, Gord Holmes a number of times to get it repaired but as of today 2 weeks later it is not done. I will not deal with Don Thurston any more due to the rudeness displayed and if the steps are repaired to my satisfaction by Gord I will note that on this web sight. As of right now I paid them the full amount and am left with cracks and inferior product.
I recommend not to waste your time with this guy. Provided me with a very affordable quote and assured me he had lots of experience. In the middle of project he asked for more money said he miscalculated on the quote.
Very disappointed with end result. Very low quality. A beginner would have done much better job.
This customer was a pain from the beginning, we formed, prepared the project. When we would leave at night he would change the formwork. Increase the size ask for discounts. When finished he had plenty of time to review the finished project then payed us in full saying how happy he was. Two weeks later he says there was a difference in the square footage amount and asked for $800.00 back on a $4000.00 job that had $2000.00 in material. Unfortunately as contractors we have to sometimes defend ourselves against people like this. Below are pics of this customers finished product, I do believe that it shows quality work.
Don and his team provided excellent customer service and an impeccable product. The craftmanship and attention to detail are very impressive. We are extremely pleased with the product and service we received.
