I hired Tim after interviewing and getting interviews of 8 contractors the first few wekks he worked hard did everything and extra and as far as I knew did everything above board.At the end of April after 6 weeks of a stop order by the city because of no permit.I was under the the assumption ,that was all done.The plumber who was also unaware there was no permit went to city inspector for info and there was a stop order. Tim told me that in ottawa there is no problem because it takes longer to receive a permit.Took him at his word,got a bcin designer for plans and it took the 6 weeks.all the demo was done ,some walls were up there were holes in the floor for plumbing and electrical was almost finished.He installed 2 new holes for a window at the side and an egress window and window well.once it was in was when things started changingI got an update of who he paid ,what he bought and what he did that day so I never questioned that all this work was incl as per contractthen after he picks up permit he comes to me saying that he needs another 12000 to finish the work.when I told him no it was included ,he said nothing.I havent paid him since may 5th but the bank wanted to see all my costs before freeing the rest,Only then did he release the bills for what he spent.he hasnt worked since then a fumbled around went to buy things but never built a cement stair ,never backfilled gravell into the back of the window well where the ground sunk,never built closet wall washer wall in bath,never planned on using new insulation and had old thin stuff in the walls.I had to remove it and replace with the new insulation.Im disabled and am not supposed to do any of this any more but I believe he thought it was an easy rip off.I used to do construction,repair and apt supervisor.That how I got this permanent injury and theres also my elderly mother when he comes for his stuff I will be getting him to sign a contract cancellation as well as leaving all the materials that I paid for even though he bought it.So its june 12th and all the trades are scratching their heads as how to repair the bad work mr winges has done.Since I have taken over, all levels of inspection have been repaired and passed.The bath is a major issue as well as venting for bathroom .I now have to hire someone else to help with mechanical,more money,more headaches more time
We had Tim Winges replicate several historic balusters that had broken on our century home. Tim was quick to bring back perfect copies that fit on the first try. Highly recommend Tim and his fine craftsmanship.
Tim has passion and attention to detail combined with his knowledge and skills to fulfill the various work we needed completed. His demeanour was professional and confident in his abilities and goes above and beyond to complete his work in a consistent and timely manner. His vast knowledge of architecture and history of restoration details made for great conversation. Our future projects will ensure we see him again.
I was lucky enough to find Tim Winges on Trusted Pros. Tim has a wide array of carpentry skills and he found a creative solution to a tricky kitchen cabinet problem in an older home. He is professional, responsive and really knows what he is doing.
I would highly recommend Tim.
