Not resolved

Charlie was hired for a room remodel. He submitted a proposal, stating scope of work and time for completion. He estimated the project would take 4-6 weeks. After more than 24 weeks, we "fired" him. He didn't show up or call for weeks at a time, had less than half of the project finished and was paid for 75% of the work.

Upon hiring a second contractor to finish the project, we discovered that the work Charlie did was not up to code and dangerous in most aspects. He failed to vent the toilet and shower, or to put in the entire drain. Almost everything he installed had to be taken out and reinstalled. I have never experienced such shoddy workmanship.

Charlie lied to us every step of the way. He indicated his truck was stolen, but it miraculously reappeared with the tools 5 days later. His father passed away, but we discovered that his father passed away 3 months before starting our project!

Last, Charlie treated his employees terribly, and displayed immense racism and sexism.

Please save your money and time and don't hire this contractor.

I didn't like: Lied constantly.

3 mexican's who have worked less than 3 years are "life long employee's?" Outside help hired off Craigslist and then not paid for their work aren't employee's...

WOW...never have we ever hired anyone from Craigslist.

Thats absurd!

Whomever this is, you have absolutely no idea who we are, what we do, nor have you ever hired us as you would not be making these false accusations.

Calling my Employees Mexicans, that is Racist.Regardless, my employees are capable of any task I assign to them.


Fake review

We have not had a project as described in this review.

Contradictions, was it a room or a bathroom.If we were to do a bathroom remodel why would we touch a toilet drain or vent.

Where are permits for plumbing relocation?

Plumbing gets inspected by the city...

CBCS employees are longtime employees and are treated very well.We have the same employees along with a few new.

Challenge- show any proof you even attempted to make good on ANY of your numerous complaints or attempted to reimburse numerous people ripped off on jobs. Try making good on off the botched jobs

These reviews on this site are posted by the same person.They are fake!

90% of or work is referral from past clientele.

We complete over 30 large projects per year, both residential and commercial.

We have built 5 retail stores within malls for the same client over the past year and a half.

We have built 3 eateries for the same client over the past two years.

We work with several property management companies for the past three years. We work with over 15 realtors for the past three years. We work for banks and lending institutions on foreclosures.

If our work was so bad and we ripped off clients, we would not be book out over six months and receive referral work on a continuous basis.This site does not vett or validate any review and any review within this site should be dismissed

The only vetting and dismissing shoud be customers that throughly check out Charles before hiring. When you research Charles the truth will come out about being fake. Your welcome future customer vet Charles save yourself before its to late

You employ 3 mexican's...Less than 3 years is certainly not life long.

Outside contractors hired off Craigslist and then not paid are not EMPLOYEE'S.Everything out of your mouth is a lie.


Please be aware that Charles R. BRZEZINSKI has changed the name of his business from Charles Brzezinski Construction Services, (CBCS) to now CENTER BEAM Construction Services, (CBCS)
