Fraud. Took approx $35,000 from our small family business and only did maybe 1/3 of the job and disappeared! Never returned our calls nor did he have a reason why he did not deliver as promised on our signed contract due date!
A scam artist always lies, Olaf Franzen is exactly that. My review was refused, but it is the honest truth, what possible motive would a small business owner have to publish this info other than to warn other poor souls who may fall into this predator's hands?
Karma is a bitch. He will definitely get what deserves.
I honestly hope that no other poor soul falls for Olaf Franzen's scam.
He talks up a good game to get you to sign his contract, agrees to absolutely anything you ask for and then can not be contacted when completion date is around the corner.
Other contractors that came to the rescue were surprised as to how badly he did the very little he actually did do. (1/3 of the job) the total was actually about $50,000 not sure where he got $75,000! This guy is delusional or simply a scam artist.
Look up other reviews on other sites. We are not the only ones.
I actually communicated with another man who experienced the same.
Paid and did not get what was promised.
This was an unfortunate situation for both parties that could have been easily rectified by the client.
The client did pay approximately $35,000 in draws after work was completed during the project. As the next draw was coming due, we were informed that they were not sure if the money would be available on time. We gave them an opportunity to arrange or otherwise find the money that was to be owed to us for the work performed, and they were unable to do so.
The entire project was valued at $75,000. When we had to finally terminate the project because they clearly did not have the money to complete it, we had completed 77% of the project, including complete demolition of the original unit, extensive electrical, plumbing, new steel studding of 10 rooms, sound-proofing of all rooms, installation of drywall, taping, mudding and sanding. The remaining items to complete were paint, trim, doors and flooring. The value of our work completed was $58,000 (and we were paid only $35,000).
