John Napolitano deserves to rot in jail for the rest of his life. He along with Ray Petrocelli, and Ronald Hinderhofer are all crooks. Don't ever use any of their services. They are all crooks! Each one of them got what they deserved! Low-rent, low-class losers!

The answer to your question is very simple. Just look out your window. You see the guys doing the neighborhood landscaping, and the driveway masonry and roofing and the carpentring, etc, etc. Before you point the finger, look at your own back yard!

Add a masonry guy to the list. Some Greek guy Dimitri smakalagosis or something like that, I forgot the last name. Total scumbag. Shoddy and sloppy paver work, and then threatened me with physical harm when I refused to pay him rest of money for a totally horrible job. He is unlicensed, uninsured and a dangerous man. He was actually stalking me for the money.

Watch out for these contractor types now more than ever. Now that the market is in the crapper they are getting very desperate to keep gas in the tank of their oversized 4 door rolling ego pick up trucks. And keep their materialistic "LI girl" wives happy with the phony wealthy lifestyle. These bs artists did well when the market was good, but also inflated their actual wealth by mortgaging their homes through the sky. That's how they bought the Hummers and Vettes and McMansioned the house. Contractors are shadier and more crooked than ever, so be very careful of who you hire to work on your home.
