Hired Chris in September to clad (Stucco, brick, maibec siding and aluminum fascia/eaves) the entire home. I gave him a 10k deposit as per his request. It took him a month to get started with Brick and in the end he subcontracted the job to another company who subcontracted it out to a few brick layers from Barrie which he never told me. They did a horrible job on 30% of the brick and never showed up until a week later when they came to take down their scaffold. Apparently they came twice and the material they requested was not delivered as promised by Chris. They also said he owed them $1500 out of the $3500 they were promised, as a result they got fed up and moved on to another job. I later on found out Chris has no crew he subs everything out to guys from Kijiji. I had to rip down the brick that was done and pay double the price to complete the brick because nobody wanted to take on this mess without a premium. Mind you I paid for all the material seperate to the 10k I gave Chris. It was now November and time for stucco to get done, after several promises Chris' stucco guys never showed up, I had to pay another company to do the stucco. Meanwhile Chris still had my deposit and also cost me the material that was wasted for Brick. At this point I asked Chris to refund me the deposit, he told me it would even out after his guy finishes the wood siding and aluminium. Now December Chris was avoiding text messages and screening my calls, I only got a hold of him calling from different numbers. Once again unfulfilled promises for a start date. I finally threatened legal action and order some of the maibec siding however his contractor never showed up. It is now January and nothing has been done, I will be pursuing this matter in small claims court and filing a claim for 25k plus legal fees.
Don't ever use chris watt aka chris turbides... he is a scammer... If anyone else has lost money please feel free to post your email and we can pursue a class action lawsuit.
DO NOT HIRE THIS CONTRACTOR UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. Chris quoted that the job would be complete in 1 month and it took 5 months. I paid Chris in full (his request) with the following work outstanding: a section of siding uninstalled, an eaves trough uninstalled, flashing not complete and site waste not disposed of (skids etc.). For 5 months Chris has been saying he will finish the job however he has not and will not. I will now have to pay another company to finish the job and will be taking him to Small Claims Court. It seems that all who hire Chris have the same experience. DO NOT HIRE THIS CONTRACTOR.
Chris Watt is completely unreliable and his crews do poor work. I gave him several chances to recover and over 3 months the job is still not done and what is done is not good. The mistake I made was paying before the job was complete. After chasing him for 3 weeks, many missed appointments I need to move on. He seems like a nice guy but don't trust a word he says.
