I will keep posting this everyday to warn people of your shady ways. Keep deleting it if you want but if you are not ashamed of what you do then why hide from it.

I will make sure I let everyone in the burg know about you so it will become harder and harder to scam people.

He does really shady work and will rip you off. He is one of the worst contractors I have ever dealt with. If you want a "REAL" contractor I would skip right past this clown. He rips everyone off.

He doesn't even have a legitimate business. Well I guess he fits right in up here.

And this is a surprise why? After all he is (or was) married to Lori Dancause. They're some of the biggest theives around. His brother in law is Rob Crosby - that should tell you something.

Where do I start. The work in my house was shotty and the carpentry was horrible. There were several spots where everything was so unlevel you could see it plain as day with your bare eyes and not even need a level to tell you how far off it was. I brought it nicely to his attention and he said "Oh, I checked it its fine. It just looks that way" A week or so later I was to be inspected by the code enforcement officer and needless to say it failed horribly. We had to hire another contractor and tear his work off and redo the work he had already been paid for which doubled my cost. Since trying to make people aware by posting this I found a guy in Canton that has also been scammed by this guy. He was nice enough to tell me what had happened to him because of this contractor/clown. After hearing the problems he caused at this gentlemen s house I felt a little better about my situation. He had hired Chris Burke to replace the roof trusses and install metal roofing. Upon arriving at his property I could see multiple waves in the roof and the ends of the trusses were all severely uneven and out of line. He is actively suing this "want to be" contractor so I promised I wouldn't disclose their whole case but let me tell you. The serious problems I stated on my case and the guy in Canton is just the tip of the iceberg.There are many more problems I can't disclose here due to the fact I am planning on filling a lawsuit myself.I hope I saved you a headache. If we can accomplish nothing more out of this than just making people aware so someone else don't get taken advantage of I am happy. Just think, Most work people have done at their houses is something they could have scrimped and saved for and could only afford to do it once without being in a lot of debt. People are having hard times right now especially in this economy. I have had to step up and work all the overtime I can get just to pay the second loan off when it shouldn't have been needed in the first place. I am not complaining of that though because I am incredibly thankful to have a job I can work. Some people don't even have that. Keep your eye in the ogdensburg journal because after I file my case if I go that route I am going to keep it well reported to the paper and take ads out myself if I have to. Good luck.

He did some work at my mother's house. I have little to no knowledge on carpentry but i sure as hell know what a straightline looks like. Everything that was done was half ass and he 'found' more issues as he got into the project.... and that ment more money. I'd avoid this guy at all costs. pay a little more and get a job well done!!!

OK now I remember, however your father was never on the payrole, he just took it upon himself to help out. I do remember you and yes you did help out that one night. I do remember your father, but I will not talk about him now, other than to say he was and more than likely still is a piece of crap. Your alright, but I have nothing good to say about Jody, your father.

I did not know that bear was your cousin, but he has been barred from there for a few years now. If I was you I would not go around telling people he is a relative of yours.

I am a guy, but I perfer not to put my name on this site. The next time I see you in person, I will tell you. Your right, it was a bar full of fun at that time, but not anymore. Like I say, your alright, but I have no use for jody, I am glad that he is doing better, but he ruined any chance of forming a friendship with me again. I won't go into detail here, but you know the things he done and who he did them to, I am one of them.
