My husband and I contracted with ALL ABOUT CONSTRUCTION CORP to renovate an area in our basement.
Contract Commencement Date - July 6, 2011
Contract Completion Date - July 31, 2011 - they said about 3-4 weeks to complete.
We have paid 23, 340.00 to All About Construction Corp.. As of Wednesday, October 5, 2011 we had finally had enough and called Richard Pombert - owner/manager - to let him know we wanted our balance owing for products and services not delivered and incomplete. They have left us in a mess and have done damage to our property among other in-competencies -- new fireplace and breaker panel issues.
In our phone conversation Wednesday, he basically said he would cooperate but that was just another lie. He had and has no intention on refunding what he owes us.
Called Richard again Thursday, morning October 6, 2011 to meet with him and go over the paper work. As I said above he has no intention to refund. I told him what he was doing was theft and fraudulant and he should be arrested. He responded by telling me I can't talk to him like that and we would have to see him in court.
Other problems with this outfit.
- recovering alchoholic drinking on site. this same person threw a chimney off our roof (ripping up our immaculate lawn), leaving a co-worker stuck in the chimney, and frying our brand new breaker panel leaving us without power and not telling us until we went to turn on the lights; and the hits just keep on com'in. There is so much more I could go on and on and on...
They owe us $17, 000.00 for work not done, materials not delivered and damages to property including electrical issues
Not only do the do these types of things they take advantage of employee; They hired a chap that came from eastern Canada to work here. He's homeless and they don't pay him. Another employee, a construction worker was told to go install electrical at a restaurant. The construction worker has no training as an electrician and is totally unqualified. They haven, t paid him either. The told him to do the restaurant job and just take that money for compensation. We have become friends with this man; he is honest, trustworthy and the only one from this company we would let into our home. We had some very interesting discussions about this company.
There is a whole lot of suspicious activities this company is up to. It seems the have another company called Hide and Seek Inspections -- pretty ironic and frightening.
Absolutely Fed Up.
