Horrible sidewalk job

Previous council had Akal Concrete Pumping build a sidewalk thru our center court in the complex I live in - Aug. 2017 . It is 4 ft wide here and there but somehow varies in width -- It is badly sloped, the edges are all rough with chunks of cement clinging to sides, the "cut" lines he put in the walk (every 4 feet) all have chunks of concrete sticking up causing tripping hazards. The 5 places that the sidewalk butts to the driveways etc. are not finished - just smoothed out and already all cracked- should of had expansion joints. -- Finally reached him - he will NOT grind down those joints or anything else. Beware!! There are more scathing comments to be found on google as well. His business number is 0839764 B.C LTDd - he is registered as a building cleaner or something.

NEVER USE AKAL Concerte pumping LTD

This company is owned by Sukhpal Sran (AKA Paul). So Paul comes to my property to give me an estimate for doing foundation work for fence work. He quotes me $3500 to do this. I show him another area that needs additional work and some trees that need to be up-rooted and re-planted in another spot. He tells me he can complete the total work in $5000. I tell him the price is too steep and if he can include some other work in that price. He looks at the additional work and tells us that it will be $4000 extra. We tell him to not worry about that and just do the original work (price is still at $5000). So by the end of his work is invoiced us total of $6100 (he charged us extra $480 for "material" which he did not include in the original quote. His finished his work, trees are not planted put are standing upright in a pile of soil and his taken the money (our mistake, but at this point we dont really want to stress about him). We thought work was dont ok (we dont know anything about this type of work). Next step, masonary guy shows up and asks who did the foundation work and starts pointing out all the mistake and unprofessional work Paul has done. This is when we start to figure out what all is wrong. So I had asked Paul why the plants are not planted properly and he told me that we should wait 2 weeks and see if the trees survive, then he will plant is properly (uuuhhh why????). So now we find out that he did not up-root the plant. Are you ready for this? What he did was, cut the trees (roots off) and just literally stood the trees up in a pile of soil!!! Who does that? Uhhh SUKHPAL does. Also, the "self proclaimed professional" also poured concreate over the wire that was supposed to be used for the gate motor!! I've been trying to call him, but no answer. Have left VM, no reply! We got ripped off to begin with, but cant help it! This is for others out there! PLEASE DONT USE HIM! HE IS ANYTHING BUT PROFESSIONAL! Heres the company details 0839764 B.C LTD

I just had bad experience from this guy named Sukhpal Singh Sran. He is no.1 crook in the world.

He always gives the business card named "Akal Concrete Pumping" but his company is numbered company "0839**** BC LTD." We built a house in Richmond and hired this company for concrete work. He charged us $3500 dollars extra for the work which he was supposed to do in the contract (Verbally) agreed. When we raised our voice, he threatened us that he will go to small claim court as we did not pay him anything for his work as we paid him in cash. We warn you, please do not deal with this company or him.

He is east indian sikh, wears turban and have open beard.

From the face and talk, anyone can believe him. Be aware of this.
