Cannot fulfill his own contract, asks for money up front for things not completed then threatens to sue if you don't pay. Never completed an 8 week job after 28 weeks, took off for 2 months so he could drive his precious darling daughter to NYC to be in a Christmas play while my house sat unfinished. Shows up at 9am and leaves at 3pm like a friggin banker.
Subcontractors on the job (plumbers, electricians and so on) didn't get paid. Owed the excavator $2000 from the last job he never got paid for. Didn't provide a porta-potty for them either until the township spoke up.
Uses the most inferior materials available.
Left piles of garbage in the yard because he was too cheap and lazy to rent a dumpster.
Fired 2 electricians so he could weasel out of paying them and did the work himself, even though he is not qualified to do the simplest thing, can't even cut the miter on a simple piece of trim. Would then turn around and blame the sub contractors for the crappy work he did himself.
Destroyed a brand new furnace using it as a construction heater, ran the duct work himself in a random configuration with no returns in a system that just does not work. Stuffed the furnace under the eaves of the attic because he was too clueless to get the basement floor poured, said he needed to because he had to have a warm house to work in.
Ruined $10,000 siding job doing it himself because he was too cheap to hire qualified help and too lazy/stupid to read the directions.
Too clueless to provide a proper sump pump outlet so he stuck the hose out the window while it sprayed water all over the electrical breaker panel.
The list is endless, I'm stuck with an unfinished house after paying $200K+ for shabby work, Don't Hire This Sh1thead.
