Failure to complete building sunroom

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Beware of REVIVE REMODELING, the business of Contractor Mike Pirwitz. We vigorously warn that REVIVE REMODELING is NOT RECOMMENDED for home improvement projects. We hired Mike Pirwitz in August to build a sunroom on the back of our house. The sunroom is still not finished after work began in September. Mike Pirwitz has used at least 4 sets of subcontractors to work on the sunroom over the past 6 months. We paid about $25,000 to date and have had multiple construction issues including continual severe leaking for six months on all 3 of the walls that were built, out of square corners, out of square pilings, out of square door & frame, dangerous structure integrity, etc. We requested our own city inspection which resulted in 7 code issues being identified. Mike Pirwitz’s subcontractors frequently failed to show for work and when they showed up it would be for only a couple hours. One crew used our patio table as a saw horse and made several cuts in it with a circular saw on three sides. They ripped our brand new OSU grill cover as well. We still need restitution on both items. Two new houses on lots behind our house were completely built during the time Mike Pirwitz initially started construction on our sunroom, that was to be completed in 4 weeks, but still is not finished. Mike Pirwitz sent me a text saying that yet another subcontractor was going to meet with Mike Pirwitz and me at our house on Monday, 3/28, to review the work that needs to be completed and that the subcontractor was going to begin today, Tuesday, 3/29. Not only did Mike Pirwitz and the subcontractor fail to show at our house on Monday, Mike Pirwitz did not have the courtesy to call or text me to let us know they would not be there or to reschedule. The subcontractor also failed to show at our house today to begin work. In our experience we found Mike Pirwitz to be irresponsive, undependable, unreliable, and not to be trusted to follow through on his word to for meet multiple deadlines we agreed upon during the past six months, including not even responding to a legal demand letter sent to him identifying a reasonable date certain for an expected completion of the project. We are extremely disappointed in the way we have been treated by Mike Pirwitz and will never use his company again for any project, no matter how small.

I can tell you from experience that Mike is a BAD guy in the business. He ripped off my son-in-law $4k for work he did for him. Do NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!!!!!

Have just recently had a deck done by Mike. Definitely disappointed in him personally and his crew(s) as well.

The one crew "leader" has walked off our job site several times, brought his 15 yr old son on school days to do professional work. A 3-4 day job took over 6 weeks. Still have issues now with our railing on one side. Just by looking can tell one side is definitely higher (posts don't stay in), than opposite side of deck.

Mike keeps sending crew leader to put extra piece under which would throw off entire look of our new deck then says he himself was out when wasn't, then crew leader walks off when I told him I wanted to show him the height difference. A totally unprofessional company who doesn't care about quality or the people who hire them. We paid for all supplies the extra Revive hurried and carried away without our permission, before we could even get a picture of the extra.

Would NEVER recommend them. Am going to notify HomeAdvisor as well
