Carlo Calderone is the worst contractor but most importantly the worst human being alive. Renos are stressful enough but this world class scammer likes to add hyper stress to an already stressful situation.
With us, never finished the job required, ripped out things that i never asked for like baseboards, doors, destroyed my furnace and he's not even a licensed electrician, he destroyed my deck and placed plywood that will start molding when the weather turns. He created a huge mess in the backyard and ripped out things in the basement that should not have been ripped out.
Carlo Calderone is lazy, never shows up, never does the work he claims to do for you, has the worst attitude, makes a million excuses, charges for materials and never buys them so he can pocket the money. For instance he promised me a cedar deck. I paid him the first week to buy them. Asking for the materials to come in and for a receipt. He didn't provide me with any except lousy excuses.
He ONLY gave me receipts cause I DEMANDED them from him and they weren't even for my job let alone the date on the receipt was a time I never even knew him. He returns materials I bought and pockets the money or in return gets a gift card from the store all which should really go back to the home owner cause they paid for it.
This guy "works" by himself and quotes massive jobs and says they will take 3-4 weeks.
Even if you had a team for the work I requested, it would NEVER take 3-4 weeks. But he always made it sound like he had a team of guys. When I asked him, he always spoke in plural form making me feel like he had a bunch of guys helping him but it was only him on site and that's only if he ever came to the house. Which was once a week when he pressured us to pay him his weekly amount.
He said painters were going to come, they never did. My realtor went to the house to see the progress. It took him 12 days to put baseboards for a room that was approx. 200sq ft
But then he did nothing for weeks again and only made excuses.
At first, he acts the part only because you are giving him so much money in the upfront.Then he keeps asking for more. By the third week he has 90% of your money and maybe 5% of the work done. By that point, he has what he needs from you and he never shows up, makes excuses as to why he's not there and gives a dirty attitude, and then collects his tools when he finds the next poor victim he can scam.
He operates on kijiji and craigslist. He found my husband on kijiji when we put an ad to do the kitchen, basement and deck. He is a champion liar, doesn't drive cause he has a DUI but yet insisted on driving me and drove my husband to get money out of the bank to pay him for work he did that week. Although in hindsight, he did nothing but make some noise around the house. Cause the progress pictures are the same as the week before.
And yes, DROVE my husband to the bank when he has a DUI.
At that time, we did not know he has a DUI and his license was suspended and he never told us so he insisted he drive my husband to get money out.
He has stolen way over $9k from me but that's not including all the other expenses like materials.
If you want a criminal, untrustworthy, lazy and someone incompetent working in your house, he is the guy.
Wish Carlo Calderone never responded to our ad but now I'm writing to help others not fall in the same trap.
He's address he gave us is 24 Hornett Way, Ajax. ON, L1Z 0M5 but that it too is a lie. This guy is the BIGGEST LIAR/SCAM ARTIST.

Mr Carlo gave me a quote and signed a contract with the start date and end date including the scope of work involved and payment schedule. I did give him an advance on signing this contract.
He came for a day, dig my front lawn and vanished.....
I have called him many times but all waste of time.
Don't deal with this contractor....
Oh my - where do I begin. Terrible, horrible service on every single front. Carlo has lied, stolen our money by charming us with promises (which he continues to break day after day), talks a good talk and gives super cheap quotes and then doesn't show up, doesn't do the work, doesn't communicate, doesn't return calls or emails or text messages and leaves you completely out of luck. We are seeking legal advice and now 2 months after the work began, still have a completely unfinished product. He got as far as framing and insulating - in 2 months!!! Please google Carlo Calderone, Carlo Calderone ajax, and NIC Construction for honest reviews which state the exact same problems we have had. Very unprofessional and beyond disappointing as he promises so much and such good work. We now have to hire a brand new contractor to start all over again and we are out of thousands of dollars.
