Dale Chymyshyn was hired in association with a company called CONTRACTOR SERVICES LINK to basically rebuild a house from the framing up. The contract in it's entirety was approximately $135K, not including the extras that popped up along the way. At the contract signing, the deposit put down was if my memory serves me correctly, around $50-60K, and the work was to begin about a month later in September, and be completed by Christmas. This was the hinge for us in hiring a contractor, was that he could complete the job by Christmas. My mother had moved provinces, and had been out of her home since March, living in her motor home on the property where this house was located. The work started, not on time, I might add, and was never finished by Dale or any others involved. The following fall, another company was hired, and was paid $80K to complete the work that Dale Chymyshyn was paid over $165K for. (addtions to the original contract were $30K for a brand new basement and $10K for a new septic tank - both of which were made to be paid in full before they would start on them) At last seen, Dale had been paid over $165K, and had only technically completed less than half of the original contract. Same story. He couldn't get people to do the work. I don't know if the man who dug the basement was ever paid a dime for the work he did. There were other sub-contractors that were never paid either. Dale left us only owing him $9800.00, but barely completed 50% of the work. He threw fits, threatened to stop work if he wasn't paid more money for "the beginning of the next stage", when the stages he'd started were never completed or inspected, threaten to put a lien on OUR property, neglected to get permits to the point that the inspector did come and stop work until the permits were obtained. We were under the impression, as that is what the contract stated, that the permits were all the responsibility of the contractor, and he even tried to say it wasn't included and that we had to pay for them. It was right there in writing! Dale Chymychyn looks and sounds like he knows what he's talking about in the beginning, but he's really just a desperate, broke, sought after man who has never paid his debts on time, does shoddy workmanship, (and I mean shoddy! our new contractor could do nothing but shake his head at what was allowed to go on in that house), takes advantage of people in desperate times, and is just plain crooked. He knows his game, and one day someone's going to catch up with him. Not answering your phone, changing the name of your business, and denying you are at fault for anything doesn't make it right Dale. You're a pitiful excuse for a human being and a waste of space, oxygen, and skin. What you have done to my mother specifically, put her in a financial situation of dire straits that has and will affect the rest of her life, and I hope that someday you receive your punishment. I'd buy tickets to watch. Don't EVEN bother making some cracked response to this post. You know which job this is by the description, and you know the amount of money you took from it without fulfilling your end of the contract. You should hide your face in shame taking advantage of people like that! What goes around comes around, either literally or proverbially, so you should watch over your shoulder, karma will kick you where it hurts. I hope to be there to watch.
