After hiring this company based on my architects recomendation , all went well for a time. it was winter they ware framing. One thing that bothered us from the very beginning was extremly poor. Calls left unreturned , written contracts never delivered.

I was very optimistic wanting to believe we still have honor amongst master craftsmen as they sold themself ( i'm a photographer ) and the work was being done. Once spring came around , they ware harder yet to nail down and after getting a large check wich was payment for some work not yet completed...they ware gone. 

2 months of calls , emails etc... nothing. Had to hire someone else to finish what they did not ( but taken payment for ) and find out that a lot of their finishing work was not square & plumb , up to 1" sometimes. 

Do your self a favor and RUN , dont hire this company!

Contractors Beware!!!

AUTHOR: Cipriano Brothers - ()

As a partner in Cipriano Brothers contracting, I thought it best to respond to this homeowner’s cluster of falsehoods.  The heading should really read:  CONTRACTORS BEWARE DO NOT WORK FOR THIS HOMEOWNER.

 In the first paragraph, homeowner stated the calls were “left unreturned” and that “written contracts never delivered.”  Contracts on this particular job were for the framing of the new addition ONLY and were most certainly delivered.  Contractors receive many calls throughout the day and evening from different customers, building supply companies, architects, etc. it’s not so easy to pick up every call received at that moment, especially while working on the job.  If we did, the job would never be completed.  Calls are always returned in a timely manner.  This homeowner expected all of his calls be answered at the very moment he was calling, while I wish we could have accommodated him, it can’t always be done otherwise we wouldn’t be able to get our jobs done.

 After the frame job was completed and paid for, the homeowner verbally requested Cipriano Brothers to do the sheetrock and taping for the new addition.  No contracts, just verbal communication.  Cipriano Brothers gave a set price for sheetrock and taping the new addition, completed the work, and received payment. 

 What the homeowner neglected to add within this report was that to save money he contracted people off the street to help with other areas of work that he wanted completed.  These were not trades people; they were not experienced in the building trade.  While I completely understand people wanting to save money, to save money hiring non-experienced workers is not the way to go because the job will not be completed satisfactorily the way an experienced contractor would have done it. 

 This homeowner ordered many of his finishing materials from overseas (expensive materials); the tractor trailers delivering this material couldn’t make it up the dirt road.  If he wanted to save money, why not use local supply companies for your finishing materials instead of using non-experienced cheap pay workers?  Cipriano Brothers even picked up the materials from the tractor trailers in our own vehicles to bring to the job site.  We went above and beyond for this homeowner.

 Homeowner states, “harder yet to nail down and after getting a large check wich was payment for some work not yet completed.” Yet another falsehood.  We received payment for jobs completed.  That’s it.  I’m thinking this statement is due to the fact that this homeowner expected Cipriano Brothers to fix the sheetrock and tape within the original part of the home that the inexperienced workers worked on.  The homeowner wanted us to do this for free – wanted us to fix these mistakes with the money we had already settled on and were paid for to do the sheetrock and tape in the new addition!!  Fix problems that inexperienced workers did for money we already received.

 This homeowner brought up people to do the mason work from the City that did the foundation 4” out of square and 1 1/2” out of level that Cipriano Brothers had to fix before we could even start our framing on the new addition.  This homeowner is clearly out-of-touch with reality.  It’s quite sad actually. 

The homeowner kept demanding us to fix work done by the inexperienced workers for payments that he had made to us for work that we had already completed.  We knew at this point it was time to leave.  Any experienced contractor would have done the same.  When you spend the majority of your money on top-of-line materials from overseas, hire inexperienced workers, and then demand that the experienced contractors fix the problems that the inexperienced workers have done – and to do it for free – you know that it’s time to leave. 

 Everything that Mr. Sikora wrote in this Ripoff Report is a complete falsehood.  It’s truly sad that because he didn’t get his way having experienced contractors fix work performed by inexperienced workers for free, he was able to write a review of blatant lies.  This is defamation true-and-true – libel at that.  So Contractors Beware:  if you get a call from Piotr Sikora you should be the one to run!
