Joseph E.Prada (or Joseph E.

Prado) agreed to install laminate floors on the second floor in my mom's house - a total of 800 sq feet. The total work was estimated at $1,500. In addition Joseph suggested to change the old decking and replace it with plywood. He estimated material cost at $1,400 which included 45 sheets of plywood, 220 feet of baseboards, 20 rolls on insulation.

The workers worked for 1 day, and as it turned out later (based on conversation with one of them), Joseph pushed them to finish work fast in living room asap and not replace the old decking. He told them to lie to me and tell me that the new plywood was installed and that insulation was put throughout the living room. Joseph refused to provide any checks for the materials and all I have in my house is the 8 sheets of plywood and the total mess and unlivable condition.

Btw, a construction engineer who came yesterday to estimate the damage told that the plywood was not supposed to be used upstairs at all as it can cause damage to the foundation of the house.

I want to warn all who is thinking of hiring J&S construction - please don't give them your money upfront even for materials and please look carefully at the work because this guys is dishonest.I trusted him because he claims to be a true Christian on his website but he turned out to be a biggest *** I ever met in my life.

His full name is Joseph Emmanuel Landeros Prado, his "new" company is "Patron Renovation and Construction".Everything is in this site is true.

He is looking woman in POF (Plenty of fish) even he has a girl he leaves with her. Be careful he is a big scamer.

He has nothing on his name, he plays being very catolic, even he plays to be a very good son but use everybody to change the checks you give them.He doesn't pay his workers either.

I'm sorry that happened to you.you should never give money before the end of the job.

When you work as a contractor, you have to cover all expenses. if you do not like the work, no pay.

But if you give money before you start.mmm if a big problem ..

I was also ripped off by a 'contractor'.I'm out $100k.

I filed a lawsuit but then found out he has no assets to sue over.

I agree.NEVER PAY UPFRONT TO A SMALL CONTRACTOR COMPANY.
