FYI people he has no warranty eaither! He came and put my counter tops in , but Granite is cracked, and I cannot get him to fix it to save his sole. SO NO WARRANTY ON ANY OF HIS WORK EITHER..... And he does not do his jobs right we had other issues that needed to be finished any never fixed any of it..... This guy is a big loser!

Well, it is 5/16/2011 and this guy still doing business. I read a comment of him being arrested before. What happened - why can the police keep him in? Something needs to be done with Arturo Salcedo Gonzales and Equisite Granite.

I am getting ripped off my Michael Padilla with Venus Designs! Anyone else out there with the same issue? He refuses to call back and I gave him a deposit of $800.
He wont tell us where our countertop is.

I paid a 1200 deposit and no granite, return phone calls or anything . Some guy named Chris will call back and make up some random date but they never show up . I guess there is a first time for everything . I saved my hard earned military money to update my new to me townhome and now its all gone . Someone should shut him and his business down .

I was ripped off by Michael Padilla about 9 years ago. Two years, court case, judgement and to this day no money returned. I had hoped that by taking him to court he would stop the fraud but I see he has not stopped ripping off innocent people.

Yes - he took me for a lot of $$$, too. There is a judgment, but I don't think I will see any of it! I could not believe the lies he told... nothing will change for this guy. Beware, he has changed his phone number and business name. He will continue this practice.

If it sounds too goooooood to be true, then you are right on the money..to keep your wallet closed. Folks just take it for granted, that every good business owner or employee is honest...NOT IN THIS CASE...always, check with the BBB business.

You are better off not doing business with Michael Padilla (Venus Designs/Highland Stone) or Marc Padilla....believe me! Save yourself the stress and headaches and find a more reputable contractor. You will be much happier.
