I hired Eddie Smith to turn a carport into a living area in Jan 2021. He charged $23500. We fired him in April. The work was still unfinished and he was over budget.

At this point, we had already paid him more than $30k because he had indicated some additional work that would benefit us. After paying him all this money, the new living area is still an unfinished, non functional area of the house.

My backyard is dug up in several areas where he attempted to install substandard french drains. The backyard slab is dug up and has been covered in plastic for several months after 2 weeks of jack hammering.

We stopped paying Mr. Smith when we realized we had overpaid. He did not buy materials with the initial deposit as promised. His workers kept asking us for materials. He also started using rough cut wood.

He is a smooth talker who expected us to be happy with the amount of work it took him 4 months to accomplish. We will now have to hire someone else to redo the work and finish what he started.

We also found out that he is unlicensed and that there are numerous people who have had him take their money yet he failed to provide a usable finished product. He has changed business names several times.

He took $7000 dollars as a down- payment from a friend of mine and did not purchase a single piece of material or start any work.

He is not an honest person. He went over the budget on our project by sneaking in additional labor and material costs that were included in his initial estimate. He has threatened to additionally bill us for work and materials.

BBB and buildzoom contain similar descriptions of his work ethics.I would not recommend that anyone hire him. He claims to be licensed. He is not.
