We entered into talks for a house addition and kitchen renovation in October, 2011. After many meetings, a contract was signed in March, 2012. All payments under the contract were prepaid, as per contract terms. There were delays right from the beginning and were given story after story and excuse after excuse. Our trusses could not be produced in a timely manner. two of the windows were the wrong kind, etc. The whole project was to be done by June 15, 2012. It eventually became apparent after our own communication with various tradespeople that we were being lied to. Although majority of our money was paid to the company by May, 2012, there was very little work done on our addition from then until October, 2012. After over four months of little work being done at our house, we terminated the contract. Now our lawyer is acting for us. Steve Hunter is not the owner of the company, it is John Evans, a local lawyer. This information can be obtained from a simple corporate search. In Alberta, a contractor who accepts payment for work before completing the work must have a license (Fair Trade Act). Our lawyer has completed a search of Hunter Construction and to the best of our knowledge, they do not have a license to do this. We have a different contractor completing the job who is doing an awesome job. We are now trying to get our money back (what we overpaid Hunter Construction for the costs to complete) and notifying the appropriate authorities of their unethical activities.
