Cesare DeStefanis showed up and gave me a quote to refinish my kitchen cabinets and put a new concrete countertop in.  He requested that I give him $500 to start the job that would be around $5000 total.  I gave him the down payment.  He showed up three days later (even though it was supposed to be the next morning) and removed all of my cabinet doors and drawers.  He said he would sand and refinish them at his house and have that done within one week.  I called throughout the next week and he said he was finalizing the stain and poly and would have everything done by the weekend.  He said he needed more money for the materials for the countertop.  I gave him $2000. 

He called a couple of days later asking for more money because one of his other jobs ended up costing him more than he thought and they had not paid him yet......so I gave him more money.

Long story short, after a couple of weeks of calling him CONSTANTLY and living in a house with no kitchen, I finally drove to his house.  His roommate let me into the garage to find all of my drawers and doors exactly the way he took them from my house.  He had started sanding a couple of them and went right through the center of the cabinet.  They were completely destroyed.

The only thing that he gave me was about 1000 excuses.  I ended up using a different contractor all together to build me new cabinets and ordered countertops.

lies

AUTHOR: - ()

 I was never am employee of Caesar or Greg? I have no clue what he is talking about. I paid him and he took allow of my cabinet faces and left. If I was an employee, please tell show me a pay stub or 1099. Lol. This is just Caesar trying to come up with a story to make himself look good. He left us, my husband, my pregnant self, and a 2 year old without a kitchen. And, I absolutely would have sued if I thought for a second he was collectible. I later found out that he has sanded through my cabinets and didn't want to tell me. Grow a set and admit you were wrong. How awful of you to do that to me and then come on here and lie. There is a special place for people like u.

explanation

AUTHOR: Cesare - (USA)

 I just want to explain the situation briefly to clear the air. I have been in business for over 12 years and have never had a complaint of any sort, however, in this particular case, the woman stating this information fails to mention that her boss (Greg) was my partner at the time and that she was actually an employee of my company. It was Greg that actually received the money mentioned to keep his house from going into foreclosure with out the embarrassment of her finding out. this was more of a personal vendetta than a deal gone bad. I covered for Greg and this was the result. I will be glad to provide names and phone numbers of the 2 individuals in this matter to speak with them directly.

If this story were true, I'm sure she would have filed a criminal complaint against me as well as suing me in small claims. I know and understand the law and am not willing to ruin a good reputation or risk my freedom. I am not perfect, nor a saint, but I do try to do the next right thing every chance I get. I do not blame her for her initial actions based on what Greg (my partner, her boss at the time) had told her to cover his own but, however, as the truth slowly came to surface, I would hope by now, she has a clear understanding of what "really" happened. I also have proof of her involvement in my company at that time that would prove she was an employee when this matter occurred.

I hope this helps people understand that I am not responsible for the unfortunate mishap in this case and can see past the personal issue that this individual had against me. her name is Brandy and I do not wish to list her last name at this time as I do not wish for people to inconvenience her in anyway, however, I will try to contact her and ask if it would be ok for people to contact her if requested. thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you now have a better understanding of the situation. I will admit my wrong doings when I am wrong, that's part of life and being accountable. thank you. Sincerely, Cesare DeStefanis
