He went on and on about how passionate he was about his work and how he could not wait to get up in the morning.

I know ababout concrete from him. Are they licensed, bonded and insured? Schertz hired this contractor to repair the brick fence walls around the city. The business has been serving the area for more than 25 years. We should have realized he was unprofessional because of the poorly hand-written, sloppy contract. The patch job had nothing to do with the leaking spa and was just a ploy to avoid fixing the leak because they had no clue how to fix it.

I only saw him once during the entire project. Rich knows he did a poor job of managing this project. I was out money for a motel for an extra week, since he was also not on schedule. I have leaves and debris under the polyurethane coat, streaks of stain color not properly stirred up, and numerous areas of my house now ruined with their sloppiness (for example, splashing thin set concrete when wet on the side of my barhtub that will require refinishing my tub to fix).

We specialize in a broad range of acid staining, stamping and scoring techniques, interior and exterior. The guy could not start and end a sentence. I was taught by my father to work hard and be honest. I feel they slap dashed the work and did a horrible job. Additional contractors who are equipped to handle such removal were brought in, which caused the increase of the 20% additional monies to be requested for this job.

He touted himself as an expert, but never knew what he was doing. The crew let the mixture get into my pool and it still has spots and streaks of the mixture left from their sloppy job.

A kid could have finished that in a day, but they never did. I have it in an e-mail from the guy in charge of hiring this contractor that his work was not satisfactory and will not be used by the city again.

The excess mortar on the bricks should have been corrected/cleaned while the mortar was still wet.

I was left out of the decision making process. The business has been serving the area for more than 25 years. First and foremost, he gave us an inaccurate assessment of repairs required to fix our leaking spa. In fact, he never pinpointed the problem even after months of trying. It didn’t identify most of what we discussed. The crew let the mixture get into my pool and it still has spots and streaks of the mixture left from their sloppy job.

The patch job had nothing to do with the leaking spa and was just a ploy to avoid fixing the leak because they had no clue how to fix it.

A kid could have finished that in a day, but they never did. I only saw him once during the entire project. They identified the problem and fixed my spa leak in three days. I have it in an e-mail from the guy in charge of hiring this contractor that his work was not satisfactory and will not be used by the city again.

In my particular case, the job was very sloppy where excess mortar was spilling over onto the bricks. The excess mortar on the bricks should have been corrected/cleaned while the mortar was still wet. Contractor doesn’t know what he’s doing after claim of 36 yrs. Christianity to sell himself in the beginning. He gave us excuse after excuse and never finished the spa repair job. He touted himself as an expert, but never knew what he was doing. We should have realized he was unprofessional because of the poorly hand-written, sloppy contract. He subcontracted a masonry crew to apply some sort of concrete mixture to “patch” the flagstone around the pool and spa. I tried using a steel brush to remove the stains, but that didn’t work. They also spread some type of sealant over the flagstone and didn’t even finish it.
