I hired Mr. Jones / South Central Services after I had severe hail damage to my home. He gave a reasonable quote and understood that this would be paid for by my insurance company. I paid him half at start up an the remainder to be paid once completed AND after insurance adjuster did final inspection. After dragging is feet between each phase, he finally finished 4 months later and demanded payment in full within a week.
Even though he understood the steps that the insurance company had to take, he didn't want to wait for them to pay the final payment and proceeded to put a lien on my house. The lien stated I owed $2,400 more than I actually did. When I rcvd the final check from insurance, I contacted him to say that I had the exact amount the insurance paid and that was all I owed him. Asked him to meet me at courthouse to release lien and give him the check. He did, then proceeded to sue me in small claims court for the remainder of the amount he CLAIMED I owed him, which was a total lie!
I went to small claims court and he showed up with an attorney and they both lied, under oath, and ended up winning. I couldn't believe it! I started making payments through the clerks office, as I didn't have the total to pay at once. He is now taking me back to court because my payments are not good enough for him! I am making an attempt to pay a "judgment" against me, that was never even owed to him to begin with....and it's still not good enough.
I ended up having a gutter literally falling off of my house and called to see if he would fix it and he totally went off saying he wasn't putting another dime into my house. I asked if he was not going to stand behind his work and he said "No, not when you owe me money" Even though he received the exact amount that he quoted me, the amount I turned into the insurance. I did not profit off of this at all....I DID THE RIGHT THING!
Poor workmanship, poor quality, and even poorer attitude and professionalism!! I would NEVER recommend this conniving man to anyone! This business is nothing but a SCAM!
Oh, did I mention we WERE "friends" and his parents are my next-door neighbors? You never know who to trust!
