Service was great for the first couple of days, communication very good. Two deposit cheques were made in good faith that the above mentioned was going to get accomplished in a week, as per our contract. Our contract did state that there might be delay to get the doors ordered and we thought that was fair, as we ordered some fancier ones.
But then the excuses started to come in - the doors weren't in yet, so it seems he felt no need to stop by the house and finish the paint or floors. Most of the paint that was started needed to be touched up. One wall, you can clearly see that the outlets were painted around. Our side entrance hall, is only painted for the first 9 feet, and you can see that there is another two feet more to complete the wall.
It was requested that all walls, trim and doors be primed because we moved into a smoke filled house and we were told painting over the smoke would rid of the smell - which it did for the most part. However, our bathroom was very hap-hazardly primed, and tar is seeping through the new paint - not to mention areas in the bathroom that weren't primed or painted at all. The paint job was started close to three months ago.
It took over a month to install 400 sq. feet of laminate.
There were times when it would be weeks before we heard anything from him - texts, e-mails, calls, they were never answered. And when they were our main issues were never addressed. Trying to meet him in person to discuss was impossible.
Because we felt we were being given the run-around, we decided to cancel the doors and plumbing in our contract. We were then told that we won't get our deposit back even though we paid all the materials for the doors and plumbing and 20% labour. With this answer, we stopped trying to get him back to complete the paint and floors.
He's a swindler and we would not recommend. Stay clear of Smedvik Construction.
Krys quoted on our job back in September 2015. He quoted for drywall, framing, flooring, painting and demolition. He started work right away and all was going great. We then had a large delay to get the construction permit and in the meantime kept in touch with his company and all other sub constructors. December 3 2015 the permit went through and he said that it should be finished by the end of the month. By Jan 1 nothing but the demolition was actually completed. He had some of the framing done, some drywall, most of the ceiling painted (although he painted all over our sprinkler heads which had to be replaced at our cost) and little to no progress besides that all the way up to Jan 15 where we finally fired him for not showing up to the job site and not answering his phone... Krys also tried to say that all his work needed to be torn down and our entire concrete slab needed to be jack hammered and replaced just because it wasn't level?!! Krys was given over $30,000 and as I've outlined had done nothing completely, done damage, and barely ever showed up except once in awhile in the evening with his buddy to do an hour or two of work. This company needs to be shut down. We're currently in the process of suing him at the court of queens bench in MB. Steer clear of this company and if you've already been screwed by them I feel your pain. I should also mention that Krys not only refused to give any sort of refund for his non work, he turned around and tried to charge us another $3,000!! Want your business shut down before it's even open? Call Smedvik Construction. All pictures posted were as of January 15, 2016. We've since opened our business one month later doing some Krys should have done... Work hard and get the project done which is a foreign concept for him.
