Ryan Taylor handyman and painting services BEWARE
In the beginning of September, Ryan Taylor and his girlfriend Emily came to us to finish a 20'x25' room with 5 electrical outlets, install 2 led lights, plumbing for 2 sinks, putting up sheetrock and painting, and putting down carpet for a new infant room for a daycare center. He gave us a contract and a finish date of October 1st.
He came in full force and started work and it was great. He kept asking for money for supplies, then when we began to question it, he switched to needing to pay his laborers and that he was trying to get back on his feet. He and Emily were very nice and had a small child, so we wanted to help them out. After about 2 weeks, he stopped showing up until after 1 or 2 oclock, sometimes as late as 5:30 and would claim that he worked past 1 in the morning or later, but when we came back the next day, nothing else was done.
He kept this up until we threatened to sue, because we had given him $18,000 so far. He kept making promises but we would always get excuses from him. After he stopped coming, We found out he used our money for other jobs, illegally used an electrical contractors license to obtain our permit (they are seeking fraud charges against him), and used another general contractors license to attempt to get a permit on another job without the other general contractors permission. He is a thief, a liar, and a conman.
Do not use him or his services. The photos are the mess and *** work he left us with.
