About this pro
Gary is the worst contractor I've ever encountered. He told me in November that my job would take 5-7 days. It's now the end of March and the work still isn't completed, resulting in four months of lost rental income. All of the trash and debris from the job remains in the backyard despite his contract stating he would remove it. The drywall and trim work was so bad that I had to hire someone else to repair it (Gary wouldn't do it), costing me $1000. My kitchen cabinets were never reattached to the walls. His guys used the bathtub to mix drywall mud and my drain is completely clogged. His guys left the electric heat on high when they left, resulting in a $400+ electricity bill. He also took nearly $800 to order windows and never did so. He's apparently alright with walking away from an unfinished job and stealing money in the meantime. The financial piece will be handled easily enough in court. What really bothers me is the lack or morality and honesty. There are so many other contractors out there. Please don't make the same mistake I made by hiring these folks!Mar 23, 2018VerifiedGary A.'s reply
from This is a simple review response This is a a prior customer that we have done work for who i strongly felt that we should have not continued working on any of his rentals in Allentown Pa,he is a very dishonest person who just lies over and over about paying excuse after excuse . All work performed was done in an (outstanding view) all debri our job done has been removed any extra work he had done he might have had done only because we refused to do anymore business with Matt i will not go into our conversations but it all comes down to a Matt trying to flip Allentown row homes with no experience or knowledge on this aspect of business his short cut corners and clueless manner put him in a vital situation on not producing permits on this property so based on him not being able to handle the REAL TRUTH HE LEFT A POINTLESS REVIEW THAT DOES NOT EVEN COME CLOSE TO THIS SITUATION AND HE NOW UNDERSTANDS THE TRUTH CAN HURT PERMITS ARE ""REQUIRED"" based on his review he is upset that he was unable to take ADVANTAGE of this company he was suppose to pull permits for electrical work he was having done and permits for window installation he failed to do so Matt has a outstanding balance of $1,486.00 absolutely No Money is owed from us And that balance is labor and we also have an outstanding balance on materials $643.20 that total both in the sum of $2,129.20 so the result of this this is a contractor beware issue not customer ty Owner

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Professional Handyman Duties Handymen may be required to perform many different tasks associated with a client's request. Often the handyman meets with the client and learns what needs to be done. A handyman then discusses the way in which he or she will approach the project. A handyman may then provide the client with an approximation of the costs associated with the proposed project plan. Home maintenance is a major duty for professional handymen. The tasks required to complete the client's project may force the handyman to crawl into cramped places, work on roofs, or toil outside in inclement weather. In addition, some projects may be complex and require the use of specialized tools or procedures.
