BEWARE of poor workmanship

BEWARE....BEWARE BEWARE..I hired this company to do new vinyl on my home and enclose my garage. he walked off the job after taking 3months to finish and still didn't complete the work and was paid $30,000 to date... He has cost me an additional over $15,000 and counting to fix all his mistakes and repair all his damages. He has left the vinyl unfinished, during the recent wind storm the vinyl was FALLING off the side of my house... he installed all the window frame work without flashings, left my windows to start leaking, peeled back my roofing material on my roof to exposure it and left it exposed throughout all of Dec/Jan/Feb...and caused roof leaks, was running wiring and doing full electrician work without being a ticketed electrician, ran wires into my electrical box and doubled them up so 2 different lights would short each other out. he ran a pipe through a wall that has been leaking continuously and rotted the wall and all the new structure. He has threatened to sue me for defamation to keep me from sharing my story but I have nothing to hide. I can prove every single claim I am making, I am telling the truth and I am not his only victim.. look up one of the many other businesses he has owned over the past 15years and you will find other examples. try GHT Contracting in Calgary (CTV News did a story on him there).. Or Taylormade Contracting,or Infinite Renovations or All things REnovations... the list is endless and as GREGG himself has said to my lawyer, I cant touch him... cause he protects himself behind his business and will just go bankrupt if you try and sue him or he will countersue for "Defamation" or "Tortious" interference... He writes into his contracts that you have NO right to give him bad reviews online and even tries to write into his contract that you don't have the right to counter sue him... this is against the law... I have had CTV NEWS at my house doing a story about all his shotty work and issues he left me with.. it is all clearly documented... I have the right to rate this person based on the work they did and that is what I am doing here.. if you want more info, look up CTV NEWS Vancouver, renovator beware.. or look up CTV Calgary for GHT Contracting... watch out, he is charming and comes across like he knows what he is doing, sadly this has cost me a lot... feel free to ask me for any proof of my claims, I have had a certified and reputable company come and do a full inspection of his work and a full report of all the deficiencies including a list of areas where he did not do the work to BC CODE and or totally wrong.. I did all the right things to find a good contractor, I checked their reviews, asked lots of questions, but they just don't protect you from people like this who will just start a new company when they mess up.

Company Response

This review is highly questionable. I am far from perfect and have made mistakes in the past but this project was not one of them. Kristin had fired 2 contractors after just a few days. prior to hiring my comoany. She was ecstatic with all of the work done until I had to leave her project because of late payment and constant scope of work changes. We had a detailed payment structure with she was constantly late on. We had a detailed scope of work in with she was constantly trying to change and add additional items that were not agreed upon. In my standard agreement there are set out rules on how to deal with conflict and going online isn't one of them. I attempted to resolve this issue be getting her to agree on what the scope of work was and she wouldn't. After contacting CTV to try to hurt my company image, I corresponded with them on what actually happened and they chose not to run the story. Kristin has been vindictive throughout this process and is lashing out. the fact that she has spent $15000 to finish the project actually shows how good of a deal she was getting. She had $12000 left owing in the agreement and understandably there was more work to be done.
