Peter K Home Improvement Reviews (1)
Review: In September of 2011 I contracted with [redacted] Home Improvement to remodel my home in [redacted], New York. The project was contracted to be finished in June of 2012. When it was clear that that deadline was not going to be met, I was given verbal assurances that finish would be by January of 2013. Further deadlines were agreed to and not met the last one being a finish by Aug **, 2013. As of Aug **, 2013 the company quit working on the project and left the project uncompleted. Beginning in April of 2013 [redacted], the company owner, began telling me he was broke and could not afford to pay for materials or supplies. He promised that if I would purchase materials and give him advances that he would finish the project. Three of his workers told me that they were owed back pay for several weeks of work. I did purchase materials and did advance money to have the project completed. There was a retainer of $37,000 that Mr. [redacted] also tried to get me to advance to him. This was in the last week of June 2013. When I declined to also advance this, Mr. [redacted] started sending unskilled workers to the job site and the quality of the work became unacceptable. Mr. [redacted] refused to acknowledge my requests for improvement in the quality of work and I had to stop some of the work being performed. During the month of July I also found out that the company had unpaid bills with several subcontractors for work on my home amounting to over $40,000. With the work that is not complete and the poor quality work that had to be redone, I have, to date, over $125,000 in expenses above and beyond what I have paid Mr. [redacted] on the contract. This, less the $37,000 retainer, equals $88,000 in expenses to date that is owed to my by [redacted] Home Improvement . Mr. [redacted] has not responded to any of my phone messages or email since August **, 2013.Desired Settlement: To have [redacted] Home Improvement refund the money that was advanced on the contract. To have [redacted] Home Improvement reimburse me for those materials I provided which were, by contract, to be provided by the contractor. To have [redacted] Home Improvement reimburse me for work that I have paid to be completed, which by contract, was to be completed by [redacted] Home Improvement but was not. For [redacted] Home Improvement to pay the amounts owed to subcontractors for work performed on this project. For [redacted] Home Improvement to pay employees all back wages for work done on this project. For Mr. [redacted] to attend business management and business ethics courses so that he learns how to properly conduct his business affairs.
