I called to hire Lone Star Shed to built a shed for me. They were suppose to come later in the day, but Jorge called and said their morning job got cancelled. I told them I would be in and out of the house because I had some things going on at my grandsons school. I also had a roofing company here putting a new roof on my house.  I had asked Jorge if they put cement blocks under the shed, he told me yes. Well they put one cement blk. and pieces of wooden blks. from the wood they had to cut. I told the guys that I did not like that. I thought they were going to put cement blks. If I had known they were not, I would have bought them myself and had them do it.

I was not able to go inside the shed, because I had back surgery and could not climb into it by myself. My brother came over the next day and he helped me get into it and then we saw all of the problems it had, that were visible to us. [continued below]....
..... I called Jorge and asked him to come back out. He first said yes, but he never made it out to talk to me. He started not answering my calls. My sister in law tried to cancel the check, but he had already gone and cashed it. I had some one come and paint the shed. I was told for it to be under warranty it had to be painted within a month. I think that was it. I had someone put hurricane clips on it for me, thinking that would help with all of the gaps in the wood. This couple to three month we had some high winds. I took pictures of the roof, because there are only one or two nails in the shingles on the roof. The wind blew the shingles up. I was in touch with Jorge again. I asked him to have his guys to come fix the roof. He first said he would have his guys come check it out. I still have not heard from him. I sent him text and still waiting.

This guy is a crook. Do not let him build a shed, unless you can stand and watch them the whole time. I also heard you should never make checks out to the individual. Always make it out to the company name. That way the have to hold the check for 10 days before they can cash it. The address I have for him on Bingle is a vacant lot as far as I can tell.

I made a complaint to the newspaper of the town I live in. They told me no one else has complained. I am sure that these people have just not thought about complaining to them. I also made a report to the attorney generals office. They will not do anything unless there are more people making complaints. Reported this company to the BBB also. I hope more complaints will come forward. This shed is suppose to be guarantied for 6 yrs. I had my shed built in 2010. He has not complied with the warranty at all.

I hope  this will make you think twice about using this company. Also they do change their name when they start having problems.
