Beware of this contractor. He is not trustworthy, not skilled, and not reliable.
I had the misfortune of using Fahim to install a concrete floor in my basement. He was refferred to me by the guy I hired to pump the concrete, and when I talked to him, he gave me his price, which seemed high so I told him I wasn`t looking for a perfectly trowelled finish, just a flat surface that I could then cover with a subfloor and then engineered hardwood. He said he understood but he preferred to do a trowelled finish to make sure it ended up good and flat.
I agreed, and he showed up on the day of the job, layed down the concrete, did a very rough bull float finish on it and quickly left while I was away from the site, after convincing my elderly father that he had finished the job to my specifications, and talked him into giving him the full fee in cash.
Not only had he not done the trowel finish (the most difficult part) that he said he wanted to do, and was charging me extra for, he also made no effort whatsoever to make sure the surface was flat (as per my only request) and yet still took the entire fee. At best he deserved half, if the job had been done properly up to that point, which it wasn`t.
When I returned to the site, saw that the job had not been finished and called him on it, he said he couldn`t possibly have done the trowel finish because that would have required him coming back to the site a few hours later? Why he thought that was a good excuse, or why he thought he still deserved the full fee without doing the most skill-requiring part of the job, I don`t know.
Fortunately I was able to get back to the site in time to do a bit of the troweling myself and knock down some of the highest areas (up to 1" tall track marks, 3/4" deep valleys). Just an awful job.
I`m in construction too, and had considered using my general labourers to do the job but wanted to ensure a quality result so I went with a so-called "professional". Not only was this guy not a professional, my general labour guys could have done a better job in their sleep. I`m pretty sure my 4 year-old son could have even done better.
A week later, I`m still fixing all the mistakes, and I`m getting no response to repeated attempts to get at least some of my money back.
This guy is an unskilled slimeball, do not allow him near your project. He`s the kind of guy who gives all other contractors a bad name.
