We had worked with Economy Restoration in the past with no major problems. This time however was different. We were in the process of getting estimates to have an outdoor patio built which included an estimate from Economy Restoration. When we told Mr. Chuck Young that we were going with another company, he pleaded with us to let him have the job.

According to him he was going through a divorce and really needed the money. Out of compassion for him we awarded him the job. Chuck Young told me a guy named Jim was his patio guy so they would be working together. I made clear to Chuck since I lived in a community with a HOA, I needed to ensure he obtained all the necessary building permits which he promised he would.

Lets just say the first week went relatively well with the exception of the slab being poured to the incorrect dimensions. Chucks partner Jim came by and started the construction however shortly after that all construction had stopped. [continued below]....

..... Chuck was never available and failed to follow through with any of his promises or timelines. During this process I received numerous calls from his partner Jim asking me if I've seen Chuck. According to Jim, Chuck was supposed to get materials and coordinate the project but he could never locate Chuck. I called Chuck numerous times and was always promised that his crew would show up in which they never did. I caught Chuck Young in countless lies from everything from obtaining permits to him contacting subs. Long story short, after 6 weeks of no work and the exterior of my home open to the environment (caused water damage to the interior of my home.  I had no choice but to fire Chuck Young.

In closing, this is the worst experience I've ever had with a contractor. Chuck Young is a smooth talker and will promise the world. I found out the hard way theres too many honest contractors to take a chance on Economy Restoration.

Anotther lie

AUTHOR: - ()

I really don't want to get into a pissing match with Chuck on this issue. All I can say is everything in his rebuttle is a lie. To say I'm a friend of his ex is a joke. I only know her because I went to their house in hopes she could help locate him after he ripped me off. We are on the books to solve this through small claims court as we speak. As far as stalking is concerned, I did everything I could to resolve this between us however he would make promise after promise to pay me but never did. Therefore when I saw him in the local area I would stop and talk to him. I also sent him certified letter after certified letter but they were always returned. I finally had to have the Constable go to his house to serve him papers.  Chuck, I too have all the documentation and pictures as well. As far asa the 13K? That was MY MONEY. I have the receipts. Prove to everyone on here that you are a man of your word and contact me to resolve this. You have my number. I'll be more than happy to post another rebuttle on the outcome. And you are correct. God is in control and will be the ultimate judge. I'll be waiting to hear from you just like I have for the past year. By the way whoever is reading this. It is extremely difficult to recoup your money through the legal system when something like this happens so it's not worth taking the risk with a company such as this. I'm following through with this soley on principle.

This is a false report from an angry person

AUTHOR: Economy Restoration - (USA)

I am aware it has been a year since this project and I should have taken action before now.   I decided not to let this angry person ruin my business.   I have the complete folder with receipts for all material and labor.  I will keep this short and sweet...In no way did I beg for work.  This person stalked me, verbally acusted me onow several occasions with my step son in the vehicle. Jim was not then and never has been a business partner which can be proven through tax statements from my CPA.  I put 13k into this job.....materials and labor...I also have pictures that show the house was never exposed to elements.  This person who is a friend of my ex wife, is and was out to discredit me personally and professionally.  I refuse to roll over and play dead.  The proof is here in my possession and I will be glad to fax, scan, or mail proof.  In closing, only God controls me and my life and I am proud of my business.
