He was OK for the first few months. After a few months he started to slow down. We paid him but he didn't do his job. He messed everything up. Stressed my whole family. Kept on making excuses for not working such as saying he went to go visit his father in his home country. He stopped building for a whole summer. Then he came back with more excuses and tried to get us to pay more money. We found out later on that he said the same thing to 3 or more families. We lost more than $200,000. We also had to pay for a lawyer to take off many liens because he didn't pay the subcontractors. We paid him but he didn't pay the subcontractors. We ended up firing him and we hired a new builder. We had no choice. Our house would have stayed the same forever. I hope you won't fall into the same trap as us.
