Adam seemed like a really creative and positive guy. He had great ideas and I was really looking forward to working with him. He was flexible around budget and agreed to lower the cost if I were to supply all materials. Unfortunately, Adam was not able to follow through. He would get things started and then not finish them or would do a very poor job of the jobs that he did do. A ceramic floor was laid improperly with the wrong sealant; worse yet, he did not do an adequate job of the grouting and, in fact, left grout on the tiles that will not ever come up. He put in a new counter without leveling it and it has damage because instead of taking the time to level it, he tried to get it to fit by having his wife sit on it until the pieces fit together. The counter is chipped and broken, uneven and...he put the sink in crookedly and now I have a mess. I could go on and on but I won't, it is too depressing. I have filed a Better Business Bureau complaint asking for the work to be fixed but he has not replied. So, I need to buy a new counter, replace two floors done poorly and redo a number of other jobs that he did poorly. Of course, I cannot afford to have this work redone so...buyer beware and...it's true the whole adage; save now, pay later.
Left job unfinished. Offered to refund deposit but 2 months later, I still don't have a refund. After giving chance after chance to make contact and either finish the job, offer a refund or do more work in lieu of the refund, he still promised to call, to come over and never did. I finally had to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.
Very unprofessional, very unreliable. Would not recommend to anyone.
I have in excess of 20 e-mails whereby he promised to contact me, promised to bring refund, agreed to a new contract and did not make good on anything.
I ended up hiring a totally different contractor to finish the job. It took the new contractor 1 day to finish a job that he could not get done in 2 months. I still don't have my 20% deposit back either (as he promised in many e-mails).
Too bad ... nice guy running a family business ... just not reliable at all. Word of mouth is everything with small business.
