Gerald De Groot also goes by DeGroot construction services. This douche is a con artist always asks for money up front. I gave him 30% for a deck and privacy fence build and he has yet to show up to complete the job. I Went to his Apartment at 1009-360 Cumberland and he said he didn't have the money to return to me. So now I'm going through small claims court.
He always asks for the money up front and that is because he can never buy equipment or product first and when you pay him he never shows up. He gives his mother's address instead of his real address and that is pretty sad he steals money instead of doing the work he tells people he can do it and it I were you never hire this man and now he is going by DeGroot construction I phoned and it was the same person so be careful you will get ripped off but good and his name is Gerald and he never answers his phone. I was looking for a construction and came across him again he is on kijiji becareful
It's unfortunate I did not read the reviews before hiring this guy. First of all he does not have any equipment. It took him and a woman 2 days to do 8 posts. He didn't install the posts with proper distance between all postseason and all posts were unequal in height. Secondly he is not punctual. He also. Didn't cleanup after himself as he said he will. Never showed up to do the cleanup. Don't hire this guy. He is unprofessional and doesn't know how to do the job.
Gerald (if that is his real name) is a con artist and thief. My husband and I hired him to do some finish work in our basement. He did the work fairly satisfactorily at first. We then gave him one of our kitchen cabinets that he said he was going to "take to his shop" to modify for us. We never saw him again and he would not return phone calls. Luckily for us, we never left him alone in our home nor did we give him a deposit up front. So we seem to have gotten off better than most--we are only out $50 plus a kitchen cabinet.

Complaint: Gerald de groot... yeah I know enough to tell ya, bad reviews are the best you'll find... I was desperate for work in 2016 so I found him hiring on kijiji... he hired me said after a week he would give me the raisewe discussed.. well when it came time for the raise he said he couldn't budget it so he gave me a much much smaller appeasement raise.. I let it slide... anyways the people we were working for were very displeased with him. failed multiple inspections... including the making of a new bathroom in the basement which... I looked up the brochure for Winnipeg building code and could have passed the inspection first go, he didn't make a separate line or add in a backup valve.. the plumber he hired out had to do all that... also his drill wouldn't mix the cement for the entire basement floor so he had me alone on site mixing in a bucked with a trowel.... for the entire basement floor... he somehow managed to go on a trip to Netherlands, musta been from the money he never paid me for those days I worked for him the last 2 weeks... he owes me a few hundred and I've been feeling the shortage ever since! he lies, he swindles oh and one more thing... shoudla rang alarm bells from the start... first time I saw him he not only was late from the time I was supposed to meet him on site.. but he came walkin up the street drinkin a can of beer.. and he always always had beer, he drank up my damn money that he owes me, I call and call and call, he barely ever returns calls, he'll shut off his phone, his messaging system was even off at times just to avoid coming to terms with the fact he owes me, he has no excuse and will always owe me till he pays which will likely be never. wish I never met him I have way less experience than he claims and can do much better work.
