This contractor completed 2 jobs for me.
Both times, several months after substantial completion, a "new" invoice appeared demanding more money for work already done. The second time, this was after he accepted "full & final payment".
Bill's bills seemed to average about double what he estimated (but can be to 4x his estimate). Bill tried to ignore instructions that he was not to exceed his estimated costs without prior approval. Bill did not adjust his billing downward when major sections of the project were removed and were paid for an managed by myself. Bill also attempted to bill for "shopping" time, "meeting" time and "supervising" time, despite also billing 20% commission on materials and sub-contractors.
I would not recommend Bill as a contractor for any type of job.
This client tried to manage his own construction and renovation project and failed to do good work and we had to re do it for him. There were supposed to be cabinets assembled for our installation, some assembly done by client was incorrect. There were no plans provided so it was time consuming and difficult to know how to place cabinet units. Client ordered the incorrect units for the stove area and we had to wait a day until new units arrived. Client did his own electrical and failed inspection many times causing delays.
The house had wet floors in the kitchen as the previous door installation was done improperly and we had permission the take it out and reinstall. The house had other level and structural problems. The basement was dirty, cluttered and contained too many items for the plumber to easily connect to gas pipes, extra time was required.
Client sets his own low budget in his mind, but reality is there are more costs than most clients imagine.
It would be nice if the contractor had to pay for everyones construction, but the truth is the owner needs to pay
I can only recommend contracting company Bill McCance and son. Professional team of people with great attitude. Their work is fast and precise. The owner is in business more than 20 years so there is no doubt he knows how to perform perfect and precise work. Thank you.
It was a huge relief to find a contractor who is extremely honest and couteous, at the same time as doing excellent quality work.....particularly as the work was being done on my own home.
Bill is an perfectionist, so you can guarantee that the job will be done well.
Small amendments that were requested by me after completion, were completed without question.
Went slightly over in budget due to a miss-communication....but this was resolved in a friendly and mutually acceptable manner.
Overall extremely happy with the job.
