Wootten Construction Reviews (1)
Review: I am having a 3 season room constructed and having problems with the contractor.The addition was begun on my home in October.Mr W does good construction work but project management has been horrific. Communication has been difficult.Time delays have been maddening.He rarely puts in an 8 hr day on this job. My many neighbors have made me aware of this as I work.He has taken no responsibility for any of our problems.The cost of extra work was not discussed in detail up front, the extra contract I signed I have paid, although grudgingly and contentiously on the one occasion. I have never held any payments that we agree to up front. I did question the additional costs of the ceramic floor and a door but paid in full.I worry he is padding the extras bill to get back at me.He has written several letters to me with multiple constraints and threats and I feel he is bullying me. I no longer feel safe giving him access to my home. why would he attempt to put in a ceramic tile floor in a 3 season room in winter ,have multiple temperature delays as the adhesive and grout cannot set, costing me an additional 200.00 in heating and expecting me to "cooperate" and turn the heater off and on to maintain a certain temp so he could work on the tile? When questioned he told me the city would not give us a CO without the floor. He lied. The city said not true.With weather delays why not work on good weather days that occur on weekends?We had a contentious phone call on February 26th. Costs of floor and entrance door, these were changes to the original contract. This call escalated into arguing about his poor judgement in timing certain aspects of the project, his not protecting the new room when he knew there was a roof leak into the the room, his expectation that "as an educated woman I should put two and two together and know he cannot move forward withe the remainder of the tile work until the leak is fixed". I think he is angry that I hired an outside roofer.Desired Settlement: Need an unbias third party to sit with both of us and work things out. I am overwhelmed and feel I am being taken advantage of at this point and trying to avoid a lawyer.I want to 1. Feel safe 2. Complete the project in a TIMELY manner. 3. Be fair to both of us. 4. Not be taken advantage of.
