We had our roof replaced..kind of...day one the crew came out without any I’d no uniforms. They completely screwed up the roof..it rained during the installation and caused a leak that led to water leak into the house. They where to install roof vents but they only nailed them to the roof...there is so much more to this story it has been steadily going on for 3+ yrs. the original leak was and still the cause of the problem. We are just so fed up....Read More

Construction on a business in 2014, project completed, the contractor used a subcontractor for dry walls. That subcontractor used another subcontractor to do the job, was fired by the 1st subcontractor after 3 days of work, that subcontractor (2nd subcontractor) placed a lien on my business. I learned about this in 2019 while selling this business. The subcontractor (2nd) never served me with notification of the lien. How should I approach and settle this? ...Read More

the customers lied from the start. i bidded a job for my dad's friend. it was close to 1600, 1800. i was going to do it for 650. if they'd wouldnt have hustled me from the start. they lied. tools are missing, i spent more on plastic, naps, help, gas, then i even got. it turned out to be a nightmare. i have 20+ years repainting, drywall finishing level 5. they said they would get me what i needed when i needed it. i lost my next jobdue to them not paying or having it ready ontime. the catch they have to sell the house within the week. My guy that taught me these trades said hit them for the full amount. unless they want to fight it. NOT going to happen. i can get my 1,600 to 1,800. ive been in this business a long time. never had a home owner complain. been ripped off more then i can remember by contractors. full paints full crew . you name it. i'm sick of it and i desperately need the cash now. they cost me jobs. a down payment on my new truck i was supposed to get the next day. i was cursed at , trampled on, stolen from. i want full price. it was supposed to be my dads friends.not friends no contract. but i got lots of pictures and witnesses....Read More

I asked for bids for a landscaping job for paver walkways and patio. I hired a landscape contractor after he submitted his bid. Now that he has stated he is completely finished with the job, he is now saying he didnt include the walkways on the original bid. His bill/contract has gone from the original $13,000 to $15,000 bid to an astounding $32,000. He never submitted an amendment to his contract however we went ahead and paid him $27,000 because we wanted him off our property once and for all. His professionalism throughout the work was subpar and his workers told me he was known for underbidding jobs to get the work and then asking for more money. They actually offered me their phone numbers to hire them directly if I ever needed more work. Today the postal service delivered a lien. for $5300....Read More

We performed work on the shell building and the tenant buildout as 2 separate projects for the same general contractor (same property address). The GC is refusing to pay final bills for either project. Do we need to file 2 separate liens for payment on both of these projects or can we file it as one since they are both the same property and the same GC?...Read More
