Complaint Review: Elegant pools and spas
Elegant pools and spas Bill BaldwinWilliam James baldwin Katerina Baldwin Built pool. We paid him and he didn't pay people that's did work and did not complete the job. A year later we are still having people trying to put leans on our house because he didn't pay them. Colleyville Texas
This company is a joke.l RUN FROM THEM!
He took our money in July and did very little. We hounded him and we got little progress done. He never paid the electric company or the people to move electric. We had to pay put of our pocket. On top of the 65,000 we had given him.
i did the footwork Inge getting things done. He was always Mia. Slow progress. We told him no more money till he stepped it
up. He did for a short while. we finally got gunite in october and they didn't plaster till December. With lots of unanswered called from him. Then they finally did rock work. Iwants snot till holidays that we were able to put water in the pool. Then we started getting the workers that did work come to the door. They had bounced checks and iou's from bill baldwin. So we had to fight to get them not to put leans on ours property. We finally got a hold,of him and as always he had excuse after excuse. When they finally laid the concrete he kept telling them and us he would pay cash and be here at 7 Am. Three days the conceret men waited on him to be paid to lay deck. Still no bill and no money.. On the 4th day we told concrete guys to just poor it we will pay for that too. We just wanted it done. He finally showed when he knew we had paid and acted as if nothing was wrong. His nephew had seen how he was doing us and they got into a fight in our front yard. Then we am lonely had the fire pit to build. I had been telling him it needed to be ready for my daughter baby shower. In march. He swore it would be done. Never was. We got ahold of the rock guys and found out he owed them money from the pool and would not do the pit till he paid in cash..so we fought with him until July. A year later. We finally had enough and fired him. too hook care of all the final inspections and we had to pay rock man to build pit. We had to pay the full amount. Which wasn't his fault. He got screwed just like we did.. Them bill started calling and said he had another guy to do fire pit. I had to threaten him with a restraining order to not come on my property. harassed us for 2weeks. I finally told him I would take drastic measures if he set foot on my yard. I pulled his back ground and found he what's been foreclosed and put on the street and has over 150,000 in law suits. And more pending. This is even after a file for bankruptcy! When I told him that we had the fire pit build already he was livid and wanted to know who finished his pool job. After a long conversation of its none of your business and to just go away he finally hasn't called in 2 weeks. Thank God!
this man is a crook and will not build your pool. He will leave you with nothing after you pay double the cost!
i also found out that he has 4 people in Mansfield that he left high and dry. That was info from the city.
and now he is showing pics of our pool and telling everyone that this is his latest one he is working on! what a joke.
please don't use this company. You will not get what you want. The only thing you will get is trouble and a empty bank account.
this idiot even had the gull to tell us we still owed hiM and he was doing us a favor by letting the last check go! We over paid him by 3500 and paid the people that did brick work and concrete, and electric on top of that!
And right after we paid him in check theirs was a fraud on my credit. a woman my size and weight and age, with same haired color tried to open a checking account in my name. The bank did not open it because the Id didn't look right. This description also has a strong resemblence to his wife.
