Paid for a patio that was never completed and my money was never refunded!!!!!!

Where do I even start on Jay E West and his “company” Patio Pro Hardscapes (Located in Florissant, MO)? Do I start with the fact of how Jay West has the integrity of Pinocchio, or how he has the work ethic of the first two Little Pigs? Do I tell you how he has the business acumen of a six year old with a lemonade stand? Scratch that, I am giving him way too much credit with that one, as a six year old has a much better business sense than Jay West. Do I bore you with all of the details of how Jay West stole a large sum of money from me and my wife for a patio he never completed? Or would you rather hear about all of the outlandish stories you will hear out of the mouth of Jay West for why he cannot show up to do the work that you hired him to do that day? I won’t do any of that, what I will do is tell you how Jay West is nothing more than a flat out criminal. I could write a review that would span for multiple pages of the mayhem Jay West put me and my family through for most of 2013 with his constant lies and overall dishonesty, but I won’t. What I will say is DO NOT TO HIRE JAY WEST OR HIS “COMPANY” PATIO PRO HARDSCAPES. What I will also do is provide you with some very helpful and valuable information, this Case.net link (https://www.courts.mo.gov/casenet/cases/nameSearch.do). Simply type in “Jay West” and look for all of the cases out of Saint Louis and Florissant (yes, there are approximately 12 pages worth). A few landlord complaints, breach of contracts, small claims cases and there are more than enough criminal infractions sprinkled in there as well. If you feel like digging through it all you may even see the law suit my wife and I had to file against Jay West… This should tell you all you need to know about the type of person Jay E West is. Now think to yourself, do I really want to give this individual any of my hard earned money in the hopes that the work might be done? Do I really want someone like this in my neighborhood, around or in my house or around my family? I would think not!

Patio Pro does not live up to promises or warranties

Patio Pro in St. Louis does patio pavers, landscaping and retaining walls. Owner Jay west is a smooth talker and a generally nice guy...except that he lies...constantly. He promises to show up and never does, he promises to return calls, and rarely does, he promises to live up to his product warranty - and never shows up to do the work. Jay West always has an excuse. He has a schedule that does not work in landscape industry where you show up early and leave about 3:30...he shows up no earlier than 10...more often shows up afternoon and works a few hours. When he works he does a nice job - just dont be in a hurry. Jay took a down payment in August of 2010 and completed most of the job at the end of spring 2011. The job was never completely finished. Lots of details left undone. Had immediate french drain and paver settling problems still unresolved. Warning. Patio Pro is not the cheapest nor the most efficient. Check with the BBB.

He skipped town. Multiple warrants for his arrest.

If you are looking for him check casenet for his dismissed child custody case. The address of the mother of his child in CA is his current address.

All I can say is that Jay West is an excellent man to depend on and he always does what he can for a very fair price and outstandiung quality. :)

this sounds like a isolated situation because patio pro/jay west did a project for me and my wife and did a great job on time

Consider yourself lucky. This man is a first class *** artist.

He takes money, does not complete work and then disappears. He has multiple pending garnishments along with current warrants for his arrest
