Looking to get an addition and porch built. I was ripped off by my last contractor. I figured this forum may help weed out shady contractors. If you know of any or have also had a bad experience please share. Thanks

wanted to have a deck built. we used 765 deck from clearfield. He never got a permit which got us a fine. Deck was suppose to be 24' by 36' and he made it 20' by 32'. He did not finish on time and his employees used more profanity than a sailor. Currently going into small claims court.

he does roofs as well. He thinks he's from Hollywood. Spent more time flirting with my wife than anything else. His state of the art roof system failed in less than two years. He blamed it on the manufacturer and didn't even try to make things right. Left dozens of messages for him and he never called me once after our initial conversation about the leak. 7658roofs should be called 768woof because he is a dog

He wanted fifty percent down and remainder of money when finished to build our sun room. He got his fifty percent down to start job the monday after july fourth. We have got nothing in return and it is now two months later. I Watch this guy because he knows the system. Our contract does not say when work will start or end.
