On one hand, the job was completed and the retaining wall Amasis
built is decent.
On the other hand, the project was filled with red flags that I shouldn't have hired this company.
I was quoted $5000 for the wall with a 50% deposit. Note - the link below states never to agree to anything above 10%.
Louis Henry took a month to quote, missed two appointments to meet at the job site with me, misjudged the amount of work in the quote (charging me an extra $450), The other 50% was requested before the final job was complete and before I was able to have a look at the finished product.
We agreed to hold back 10% for final completion. They didn't clean up the job site quickly and even after I complained, they left behind 1 large item. He then said he would charge me for that too, which I agreed to.
But here's the kicker - when I explained that he took too long, overcharged me, wasted my time, left stuff behind, etc... , he called me a coward and stated he would come to my home right away for the final 10% (see attached). In response, I suggested we meet in a public
place where I can give him the remaining payment. When he arrived at the public place, he came with another man, presumably to enforce payment.
Based on this interaction, it was recommended I file a police report and was told never to communicate with them again.
This took 4 months in total.
I ended up getting the mess cleaned up separately.
I would not recommend Amasis. Also note, their address is a mailbox in a Money Mart at 7777 Keele Street, Vaughan. So they do not actually have a physical location, another red flag.
Don't pay more than 10% down payment.
