Sundance Custom Homes Bud Gannon, Ronny Gannon, BDG Construction Theft, Fraud, Breach of Contract, Misrepresentation, Abandoned Project Van Alstyne Texas
We contracted a builder for a major remodel. He provide a bid and a we went into a contract with him. His name is Bud Gannon, Sundance Custom Homes, or BDG Custom Homes. The BDG is for Bud and Denise Gannon.
He stated he would have a very experienced framing crew, provided line item bids for each item, etc.
When the project began, he brought in a crew of illegals that had no clue what they were doing. This is based on expert opinion since then, a building inspection of their work, and other contracting companies.
He had items delivered to our home, charged to our account, but was for other jobs. This was confirmed and admitted to by Main Street lumber, who assisted him in this activity.
After 3 draws and refusal to fix numerous issues, he did not return to the project. We met with subcontractors to find out that the bids he provided to us were not what they had provided to him. For example, he told us the Electrician’s bid was $10,000, but they provided me a copy of their bid to him which was $17,000. This happened with the HVAC contractor, plumber, and most everyone else involved.
He had our existing HVAC system removed and destroyed it. This caused us to purchase a whole new system. He had told his HVAC guy that we were going to buy the new unit for downstairs, but our agreement with him was to keep our existing system and only add a new upstairs unit. Now we have had to buy two since they destroyed our other unit.
There is also suspicion right away that he was using the funds he received from us to pay on a job that he was trying to finish up.
Once he left, the attorney who represented the bank asked for a building inspection. The inspector wrote up a report of all of the structural issues, damage to current structure, and poor workmanship.
The builder left us without heat and air condition, and left the roof leaking in numerous areas. We used space heaters for a long time (it happened in March 2013) and then finally got AC in just the living area
We had another contracting company provide a bid of only repairing the issues, and it was $36,000. We had paid out to Bud Gannon $30,000 at that time. So, it was going to cost more to repair the mistakes.
We have had to remove so much material that was applied incorrectly and wasted, which I feel Bud Gannon should be responsible for. I have not communicated with Main Street lumber and do not have any funds to settle anything with them. They refused to take back items that did not go to our house, but they were trying to charge us for. I asked them to inventory our home since I felt more items were sold on our account but were being used on other jobs by the builder, but they refused to do so. I feel their collaboration with Bud Gannon on the criminal activity of charging things to our account and delivering them here for Bud to take and use on other jobs should be addressed.
Also, we did pay him $32k and we can only see that he paid out maybe half of that, so he should have the funds to pay Main Street and any other subcons that he did not pay.
