Contacted the DCA this morning and they said to write a letter as Rob mentioned. So I wrote a letter and will be dropping it off tomorrow.
Been there, done that.
I had a nut bag over the Sumer, sandy rewire. Guy took down all his Sheetrock on the first floor. We did a rewire and added recessed and ceiling fans.
Started the job in December. Calls me for a finish in febuary, we roll over there, there is no Sheetrock or insulation....wtf?
Plus there is all kinds of changes, they moved walls, moved plumbing fixtures, installed 2 zones of hvac
Call the guy,he gets nasty, does not understand why we can't just finish. I give him a price for the extra work, he goes for it, ask about permits for the other trades, he tells me that they don't need permits... Um ok pal but when I get this inspected your gonna to get caught... He replies I need this house for the summer
Now it's May, he emails me, I'm ready to finish, they are installing my kitchen appliances on Friday. Well listen I'm super busy now. I need three weeks before I can get there.
Out of curiosity I go over and look, still no Sheetrock and now an entire kitchen's worth of cabinets are stacked in the house.
Now he gets really pissed... At me. Listen I paid you to Install my breakers and devices go put them. Me... But it's not sheet rocked AND you paid me for the rough, you still owe me a trim deposit and a final payment... Him no I paid you to put them in.....me no you didn't, take a look at our contract..
Next day his lawyer calls me, if you don't go finish the job you were paid in full we will take legal action... I said " is this a f---ing joke? Am I being " punked" on MTV?
I explain my side to his lawyer and he says ummmm errr oh ahhhhhh well I think I have to call my client back and see about this.
Homeowner calls me, I am terminating your services and finding someone else.
Sounds good to me you lunatic, I went a wrote the letter like stated above, plus turned him in for the extra work. To this day there still is a big red stop work order on his front door, no work has been done since this went down in may.
Enjoy your summer in your summer house on the jersey shore jerkwad.........:lol:
