About this pro
We had established a contract beginning of december 2012 with vic hosking of ahr contracting to build us a shed for our home. After promising it be done in week and half, the date kept getting pushed back repeatedly. Then after asking for more money for materials then excuse that a guy he bought material from ran off with the money we paid, we asked for a full refund back. No work has been done and months have gone by. Now I have an unsightly concrete slab in my yard with metal rods. With multiple phone calls ignore, certified mail denied, and no one returning any calls when all we want is our money back. He seems trusting but he clearly is not. I would not recommend his services if he and his company have been reported to the BBB over 6 times in the last year.Apr 23, 2013
Vic Hosking did not follow through and left the contract unfulfilled. He took $1100; 500 for materials and 600 down. He stated it would take about 5 to 7 days but after 3 weeks it was a total chaos. He did not come by and get materials, return my calls, or responded to my letter asking for part of the money back. Please beware. He appears to be honest, trustworthy, and knowledgable but he is notFeb 12, 2013VerifiedVic H.'s reply
We did in fact work at this job. We removed pop-corn from the ceiling , and painted first coat in all rooms. The ceiling was very difficult to clear of pop corn because incorrect materials were used originally. We spent hours attempting to level out sheetrock mud that had been treated with sealer, that left it hard as concrete., almost as if it were an epoxy. There were some scratches in the sheetrock celinig that we also worked to remove. After first coat of paint the homeowner found sheetrock flaws that he wanted fixed. We had at least one guy on site everyday, INCLUDING EASTER. The homeowner finaly told us that he was having "another guy who had worked for him in the past" perform the completion of the job. He had given us $500 for materials and $600 on day 7 of the job in question after inspecting what work had been perfomed. We had completed more then 1/2 of the job by the time he "let us go", the total amount 'for labor' was $1200. We do have tools still at site, but have been unable to reclaim them

- What types of customers have you worked with?This depends on the time of year. In the spring around tax time we get a lot of roof repair and new roofs. As summer approaches we receive a lot of outside landscape type jobs. Fall brings in fences and sheds, followed by more roofs right before winter hits. We also get a lot of remodeling jobs such as garage transfers throughout the seasons.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?We in the building field work hard for our money. We spend a lot of time and resources to try and get your job done to the best of our abilities. We know we are not perfect (Who is?), but are ask that we are paid on time and in full. We are a small business and can not afford to have people simply not pay. In order to do the best work possible we need to pay great employees. Our employees get paid by the job and many can not wait for weeks or months to get paid. If one job does not pay it indirectly affects every job after by limiting who we can or can not work. If there is a problem please let us know and we will try and work with you to try and keep everyone happy!
