Angies List in Grand Rapids, Michigan - Bad contractors dishonest

Was given a price for the completed job, almost from the start they started saying it would be more. They said they were using things they weren't using never had them. I went with Angies because I was told they check out the contractors THEY DO NOT. I had to have them leave my home. In the courts now and the mess well it's still here

Other Company in Halifax, Virginia - Unfinished work

We hired Brad Jesse to build an addition and remodel a bathroom and laundry room. Basically he never finished. We also hired him for a few other things which we paid him extra for along the way. He asked for money for materials, and money to meet his company payroll and then money to put in his account to cover getting job insurance...blah, blah, blah. He just quit coming or answering his phone or texts for 6 and a half months....later told us he had cancer. I’m an RN and he did not appear to have been ill when he returned. He called a few months ago and said his employees had embezzeled from him and he was being sent to federal prison for 2 years for tax fraud. He was supposed to be goi g to prison in November, so if he is not in prison I’m suing him. I even wrote him a check for $700 for a new bathroom vanity top. I wrote the check December 5, 2017 and he cashed it December 6th......he strung us along and we eventually confirmed with capitol granite that the top had never been ordered or paid for. He just took our money. We now have not even had the final inspection on our addition, and my bathroom was never completed. This has a been going for over 2 years. One or two or three guys would show up for 3 or 4 hours a couple times a week, then nobody would come for a month or two. I am so angry.

Other Company - This guys a scammer!

We hired this service to remodel two of our bathrooms in our house. He started on the first one telling us he needed half the payment now, which most contractors do. So we gave him half the payment. Then we told him to buy middle-of-the-road items to put in our bathroom and he brought back cheap looking materials and charges 3 times what they were worth. He told us they were the middle of the class items we had asked for. He then had other people come in to tear off the drywall and tear out the floors and then said that they charged him more so we then had to pay him more. After paying him $4,000 he never got the first bathroom completely done and never even started on the second bathroom and he never showed up again. He is nothing but a scammer and a drunk and does not do quality work in my

Other Company - If I could leave less than a 0 star review, I would.

These guys completely took advantage of an elderly lady. To start: she is LDS, when my husband noticed Beer cans in the garbage can downstairs and cigarette buds on the floor. She asked them to not drink or smoke on her premise. The beer(What type of construction company allows their employees to drink on the job?????) Their work was HORRIBLE!! When brought to the companies attention, they could care less. My husband is now spending hours fixing and doing the work they were paid to do. The work is worse now than it was to start. NEVER EVER will I recommend this company. I will recommend family and friends to stay as far away as possible from this company.

Too late for a refund if you've altered or defaced the allegedly defective work.

Refund is not the issue here! They left her with no running water.

And a HUGE MESS!She is elderly, what were we supposed to do leave her there with no water ..NO, I don't think so! I'm beyond grateful nothing happened while they were on the job drinking!

What were we suppose to do, leave her there with no running water! NO, I don't think so! The company was of no help!

We had to get her water on and back to a livable state. I am just grateful nothing happened while they were on the job drinking!!

DONT Use thumbtack!!

Hired a contractor through thumbtack. I was wary since there doesnt seem to be any reviews for the 'professionals' listed there but we were in a pinch and the meet and shake went well. $2,300 in we have had a a gutted bathroom for a month now. We see the contractor every 8-10 days after we spent 4-5 days badgering him to come back and work. Nice guy but come on! 20 hours of labor over 45 days because he's taking jobs faster than he finishes them.

Thumbtack arranged a snap chat interview with contractor, arbitrator & us. Everyone agreed to accept arbitrator's decision.

The decision went in our favor with $ awarded to be paid by contractor in 2 weeks. That time has passed & we have not rec'v any compensation that...

We hired T&S Tiling through Thumbtack, who said he has 15 years experience remodeling bathroom. He pretty much butchered our bathroom, took our downpayment of 2,000$, and did not finish it. Our bathroom has been unusable for a month now and we are now waiting for a...

File a small claims court case against him. That will at least shake him up a bit! Sometimes it's just worth consuming their time, and keeping them nervous!
