BEWARE

I hired this company to repair and paint my deck. I suppose my mother and I were naive because we have a very small deck (8 x 20) and we were quoted $800 and because he didn't show up when I asked for a quote on driveway sealing, Joe said he would also do the driveway for free. I told him we'd think about it and get back to him, but before he left he asked "what would it take for me to sign him on that day. That should have been a red flag, but approximately two hours later, I contacted him and told him my Mom and I had agreed to let him do the work. Contractor returned within 20 minutes and I wrote him a check for $400 (Half now and half when job completed). In the meantime, I had talked with a couple of people who told me that the contractor was taking advantage of me because I could get my deck painted for far less than $800 ($300) and driveway sealing was about $160. I kept that information in the back of my mind but the contractor arrived the next day when it was raining and wanted to clean the deck. I told him I didn't think it was a good day to begin the work because I did not want the dirt tracked into my home. The contractor then asked if I could give him another $150 that day so he could pay his workers but I told him I could not. He then asked for $100 and I told him no. The contractor told me that he would be back on Monday of the next week, but never showed up or called to reschedule. After a couple of days, I sent him an Instant Message via Facebook Messenger letting contractor know I found someone else to do the job for a better price and asked for the materials he claimed he had purchased along with the receipt(s) and the balance of the deposit. Contractor sent a response a couple days later that he was out of town with a death in the family and would contact me when he returned to Rochester that Monday. I did not hear again until May 8th when he told me he had not forgotten to call me and was still out of town. Said he would contact me on the 9th. I did not hear anything so I sent another message on the 10th but then received a message that he was still out of town and would contact me on the 12th or 13th. Contractor finally called me on Tuesday, May 15th to tell me that there is no refund of my deposit because I breached the contract (that I never signed) twice - first by not allowing him to clean the deck in the rain, and second when I asked for a refund because I found a better deal. I cannot afford to throw away $400 like that and because contractor was extremely nasty about it all by telling me to try to take him to court but I will not win. I asked if he was going to allow me an opportunity to speak and he told me that the conversation was over and hung up on me. He never started the job and he's not keeping my money. If you've worked with him in the past and received great work, I'm happy for you...BUT if you've never worked with this guy, l advise you not to. He's a thief , I have taken him to court, and I won the case, but I'm still trying to collect my judgment. Such a crooked business guy.

Worst People to Contract with ~

Gave me a great price for lawn cutting & I paid for 1/2 the season in advance (HUGE MISTAKE). They never show up until 10 days - 2 weeks and I have to constantly call & hunt them down. Talk a good game but that's it. Very unreliable & I am asking for my $ back or I will report him and go to Channel 13 news - we should all band together about this guy Joe Levine & what a ripoff he is! They exposed a guy for snowplowing scam who took peoples money & didn't perform so we should do that with Levine's Lawn Care too! Tired of contractors who do not keep their promises and give you the run around. Too many of them out there and Levine's is at the top of my list right now.
