This is the worst contractor experience I have ever had.

The scope of the project was to replace the gutters, install all new replacement windows, and aluminum wrap the existing window frames, soffit, and fascia. 

Rob Kurth with Kurth Contracting presented a proposal that was in line with other quotes we had gotten but we went with Kurth Contracting believing that we would get a better installation.

Things got off to a bad start before the work even started when Rob noticed that he missed two windows when he worked up his
proposal.  He said it was his error however, but still asked if we will split the cost with him of $900.

Work begins and more problems occur when Kurth Contracting removes the gutters right before a weekend that is calling for heavy rain.  This leaves us struggling during heavy down pours all weekend trying to keep water from entering our basement to no avail. [continued below]....
.....

Next came incorrect fascia wrapping (where they tried to convince us to install gutters to cover the mistake), incorrect windows being installed and windows installed over rotten window sills.

After those issues Rob said that he discovers three more windows are supposedly not included in the original proposal and of course Rob states that it is his error but how great it would be if we spilt the cost with him of $2,250

The project continues with still more issues with damaged screens, leaking windows, and peeling paint.

Finally the project completes and I am expecting to pay the final $4,000 owed but receive a final bill for $9,450!  Rob Kurth said that the additional amount was for the five windows he missed and since I didnt agree to split the cost with him he was charging me for the full amount. 

He went on to say that he would fabricate a story that would make it appear that I owed him this money in court and that if I didnt pay him within a week he was filing mechanic leans on my property.

Even after paying the inflated final invoice, Rob Kurth is not responding to our warranty issues of peeling paint that is supposed to be warrantied for twenty years.  And In addition I have just noticed damage on our new front door that Kurth caused when they replaced the picture window above it.

I have never worked with a more dishonest and unprofessional company stay away from Kurth Contracting!
