Contractor Nightmare!

Unfortunately for my project, Greg and Luna were the "nightmare contractor" that homeowners hear horror stories about. In a way, however, it was very odd because it was not the typical scenario where the contractor disappears after completing 80% of the job. Greg would show up day after day. The problem was, however, that he was not completing work and the workmanship of the work he did complete was substantially below par and completely unacceptable. What happened? The job was contracted to take 6 months and about 4 months into the job Greg Kowalski realized he had underbid the job and that he was going to lose money on the job. So, instead of doing the upstanding thing and timely completing the job with high quality work, he decided to cut corners in an attempt to cut his losses. Consequently, for example, he did not hire licensed plumbers or electricians to complete certain parts of the work and, instead, used his skeleton crew of essentially 3 handymen (who are not licensed plumbers/electricians nor trained carpenters) to complete many items. As a result, my kitchen sink leaked ruining my new kitchen cabinet and damaging my neighbor's ceiling. Another example: Greg's workmanship on the framing, sheet-rocking and painting of all the new walls in the apartment was so bad that I had to have every single wall in the apartment skim-coated to make the walls straight, level and plum. Additionally, the workmanship on the brand new wood floor he installed was so bad that I have to have all of the wood floors re-sanded, stained and sealed. And, that's just the beginning...

What a terrible story. Contractors like Greg and Luna Construction should have their licenses revoked!
