We hired Dave for a basement development .The work was supposed to be done by Mid- November and when we met with him he assured us that it would not run late as he had given himself lots of time. By the time the basement it was the middle of January. Running the Project nearly 7 weeks over the 8 weeks he quoted us, basically double the time.
The Project started out really well however, at the end the bathroom was really rushed with very poor finishing work. Silicone , grout and tub poorly finished. We had to get him to come back to redo some work and it's still not fantastic but we were tired of just complaining about it and since it's the basement for guest we figured we could live with it.
We ended up cleaning up all the waste from the project because it was left on our deck for so long.
He had to come back in the spring to put in a window. The window was installed and the interior looks good however again the exterior finishing is poorly finished. We have contacted him to get the stone work fixed but have not had a response. We are now are left looking for another contractor to complete the work so that it looks like it should a better. I'm sure the exterior appearance would be a huge problem if we were to ever try to sell our house it looks like a DIY project that was not quite done properly.
Communication: initially very good
Work: painting, drywall. pipes, electrical- Very Good
Finishing work/Esthetics and details : poor
