The pool should be complete. I have numerous voice messages that I saved, Gauranteeing me completion by 2/28/06. I cannot use my driveway or garage because it has had dirt on it since May 2005. Every week I was told the materials are ordered and the subcontractor will be at my house. It never happened. On April 10th, I had a meeting with one of the owners (Addison Bachman) and the superintendent (Jack Jackson). They told me that they were having financial difficulties, were back on track and wanted to complete my pool. They said to give them 8 days to get a crew back on site and get going (with approx. 2 months to complete) or hire another contractor. I was told that we would be swimming by summer. On 4/19, Jack called and said the subcontractor would be there 4/20, again no one showed. No one has returned my calls or emails.
The last the subcontractor worked was 3/27. After 30 days it is abandonment. This was the 4th time in the last 5.5 months that there was over 30 days been work. The subcontractor who was performing work on my house has threatened with a lien if I do not pay him $17,000.00 that Baja Pools owes him for work performed. He has indicated that 2 other subcontractors are owed money also. I have already paid $85,000.00 and am not close to completion. I have already hired another contractor to complete my pool due to the lack of proper diligence and abandonment by Baja Pools. Baja Pools will deny this, but I have pictures and if anyone wants to take a look, feel free to come by. I have asked Baja Pools to pay the subcontractors all money owed and pay back my $33,385, that includes $16,000 for an amendment that no work was ever started (but was told materials oredered since January 06). They have not responded.
