I found Jeff on Angie's List because I was looking for a contractor to make custom made baby gates.  I emailed several carpenters and Jeff was the first to respond.  He responded almost immediately and requested to come to our home to give a free estimate that very same night.

After looking at the 5 areas that needed gates, Jeff quotes us a price of nine hundred ($900) dollars.  He said it would be more expensive because we wanted solid oak gates to match our already existing woodwork.  He explained he would need half up front so that he could buy materials.  

Jeff seemed very genuine and nice and even talked about having his own eight (8) year old son.  He had a contract all ready to go and told us that the gates would be finished and ready to be installed in approximately two weeks.  

The estimated finish date came and went with no word.  I called and called. No answer at his office and no answer on his cell phone.  Finally, he called me back and explained that his family members had died in a car accident and asked if he can still keep making the gates since he already bought the materials.  I felt bad for him (this is obviously before I researched and found out about all the other lies he has told to explain why he didnt finish a job).

During that phone call Jeff Turns said that someone from his company would be calling me that night for a new installation date.  He even claimed the gates were almost finished.  No calls ever came.  Soon his work number was disconnected.  I began texting him on his cell and telling him that we are filing charges against him.  Finally he responded begging not to file charges and that he cannot keep his end of the contract and would send us our money back.  That was almost a month ago.  No check ever came.

We are in the process of filing charges.  This man is a con artist.  He will take your money and do nothing.  Also beware because he was in the process of changing his company name from JMT to Level Line Renovations.  Probably because he has such bad reviews.  Dont give this man money and do not let him into your home.

From Owner of 55 S Front St: owner of 53 S Front may not flip

AUTHOR: Vertix - ()

This is in reply to one of the comments on this report. I will be writing my own report seperately regarding my dealings with this guy.

I am the owner of 55 S Front St and have been working with my neighbor at 53 S Front St (we are a connected duplex) regarding this issue. To save face for my neighbor, regarding the comment about flipping 53 S Front St, the owner of 53 S Front St may or may not choose to flip the property depending on how everything goes when the renovations are complete. My neighbor claims no connection to the contractor Jeff Turns, Sr. who is in question in this report.

Jeff Turns has been working at 53 S Front St doing renovations on an old dilapidated property. The contracted work being done is not structural in nature at 53 S Front Street, then on (or around) 5/16/14, one of the main support beams in the basement of 53 sunk about 1 1/2" overnight. In a panic, the contractor told both my neighbor and my family that the house was not safe to live in and that we must sleep somewhere else that night. He put a single 18k-26k lb pole jack in (might I add that he put them in upside down for working with wooden structures) and then said it was safe to come back in. He claimed to have put the pole in "finger tight" however the way the pad of the pole jack was facing on the beam and far it sunk into the beam, it looked like it was much more than "finger tight". A week later tried to convince me that the house had sunk even further by putting his full weight on the jack and thrashing around to show it wasn't moving. I have no way of knowing how truthful he was about putting that pole jack in "finger tight" as I was not present to watch him put it in.

The above notice regarding where Jeff Turns was going to be next was posted by my grandmother, a real estate agent, who was very concerned for us and has reason to believe this guy is a sheister. I want to clear some things up about the owner of 53 S Front St, as I believe he is not at fault and not "in on some con" with this Jeff Turns fellow. The owner of 53 S Front is still on the fence about staying here or flipping it depending on how the work goes, so I'm writing this to aleviate any ill will towards my neighbor. Definately not sure about Jeff Turns.

Jeff Turns has claimed that his ex-wife bought out his JMT Contracting company and ran it into the ground, thus sullying his name. However, from other reports I've seen of him on this site, I doubt that it's his ex-wife that's ruining his "good name". I have been advised to submit a police report, and that is what I'm planning to do. Best case scenario for him, this guy's story may be true and the police won't have to do anything except ask a few questions and confirm his story.

Jeff Turns, if you're reading this, you'd better have some rebuttals ready.

This Gentleman will be at 55 S. Front St., York Haven, Pennsylvania on Monday-Memorial Day at 1:00pm

Jeff Turns will be at 55 S. Front Street, York Haven, PA at 1pm on Memorial Day - 5/26/14.  This is a double house and he has offered a review of cost to firm up the center basement wall.....we have advised our grandson to get a second opinion before handing over any money.  53 S. Front Street was purchased to flip and the person who is doing the flip suggested using Jeff Turns.
