Chris Newton is a criminal!!!!!!!

I have hired this piece of *** several times. He has used his religious and family status as part of his scam. I've worked as his boss and I've never had so many complaints from workers. Chris newton uses workers to pad his profits. It's his game!!!! I won't advise you not to use him but as a large contractor I know his operation. It's to leave messes all over the place and not pay workers for services performed. Chris newton is a disgrace for all decent, hard working construction companies. He is why nobody trust anybody. But remember, if you use a crew and chris newton doesn't pay you, which he won't, then you'll need to explain to crew members why they can't feed their children. Chris newton will pay your bills until he doesn't need your services. He has 2 other partners that are suing him for breach of contract. And those are his partners. The moment chris newton doesn't need your services he will leave you screwed. This is not assumption, but based upon actual experience. Why would I expose this *** bag? Because as a larger company owner I'm bothered by workers not being treated fairly or honestly. Chris newton is nothing more than trash. He hides behind family and church while screwing *** and ditching payments to honest, hardworking, subs. Oh, and for those still unsure, especially from a few posts saying they were paid, remember two things; 1) some of those messages were left early in their experience, but I'm certain they wouldn't respond the same way. 2) chris newton is such a large pile of trash that he will create his own fake identity and make a positive reply. That's it!!!!!!! Nothing better, he blows everything up and steals from hard working subs.. AND,,,,, I've also been forced working with numerous project managers from his company. The ones that have good experience have long since left and would confirm, and then some, everything stated here. Many others were hired as project managers after less than one week of experience and then not paid because the job wasn't done properly. That sub, or project manager, may agree with Dr. Trash (chris newton), and take massive pay cut, Because things weren't perfect. But really would a new sub understand what the client really wants? NO!!!!!!!!!! You were set up to fail. Every client of mine where I've placed *** on their properties has fired him and in turn he hasn't paid the subs. Still not convinced? Ok, the only thing I and others that have worked with that piece of trash would ask is to properly and honestly update your experiences on line. You will get screwed. If he is willing to betray his wife and family why wouldn't he betray you?

Wish we did our research also, before doing work for this fraud. It is public knowledge now and a matter of public record. All one has to do is look at the liens placed on the properties he hires people to work on. Does make you wonder why they operate under so many company names. Newstone Construction LLC, VCP Construction LLC, StoneWay Builders. When you have 4 of your contractors filing liens on property..something isn't right. When one of the largest building suppliers in Mobile liens your property..something isn't right. And I know for a fact despite what he says online, contractors will never see their money unless they take him to court. So beware getting into business with this guy.

This guy is a complete fraud. Basically he would cut your contract amount after you started work but would still make the full money draw from home office.

Chris and the felon who was the superintendent onsite would pocket the difference. We had to hire a lawyer to get our money. Last count seven different contractors on that job hired lawyers to get paid.

Absolute *** artist in every sense. I have no idea how this fraud sleeps at night.

Chris Newton has not paid us for our services either. We have a legitimate bill for work done and he will not pay.

His new company name is Newstone Construction. We are still trying to get paid but is does not look good unless go to court and spend more money and time.

I do not understand how the regulators have not caught up to this guy yet. I guess its only a matter of time.

Stone Way Builders Group - Stone Way Builder Group Work Experience Review

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Maybe they paid you on this job but . How can you say they didn't pay the others or imply they aren't owed, you don't know unless your begin told one side of the story and then we know you are just posting for a friend ... But your correct research .....and you will see Mr.Newton operates under stonebrook builders , stonebrook construction, quantum construction , newstone Construction and advance southern services,,,, why would one person need so many company names if he was on the up and up ????? All I am saying is something isn't right .. also why would a person have 2 construction companies with different names operating out of one office .. Soon there we'll be some answers !!!

Beware

Glad you had a good experience. But, we have worked with Mr. Newton and he is not the person you describe in your review of him. We have tried to be very professional with dealing with him on a unpaid bill. I won't go into detail on his email response but it was very derogatory towards us. This was a legitimate bill for worked performed. Do your research before working with or for him. We are now in the process of legal action but it seems he changes company names very quickly to avoid these type of legal issues. We hope to get our bill paid but it does not look good.

Let's work it out!!

This is Chris Newton. Some of you guys are saying some pretty horrible things about my company and your hiding behind an Anonymous tag. I will agree we're not perfect. But we do pay our subs. No body is trying to run from debts. If we truly owe you money then email me (chris@***.com) and let's get this worked out and settled. This back and forth slander is helping no one. This could be misunderstandings that can easily be fixed. Sometimes we don't even know we owe you money because someone didn't turn in your paperwork or you really did do a poor job and we had to pay someone to fix it. I'm sure there is a paper trail that can prove it. Either way let's settle the dispute. I'm right here and my email address is posted. I'm willing to workout any differences we have so we can all move on.

No one wants to work for you or any of your *** companies. You screw over too many people. How many contractors have put liens on projects you run ?

I'm a contractor on one of the properties in Riverdale, Ga. and we have problems with Chris Newton paying us.

We may get our check on time and the funds wouldn't be available. Then we may get them weeks at a time. They want to blame it on the contractors but half of the time its them. I have turned in several invoices on time and me and my workers didnt get paid for weeks at a time.

I had to pay my workers out of my pocket.They keep changing the name of the business, you don't know what name will show up on your check when you get it. When you don't get your money look out because they are good at buying new trucks and cars for their family. Man I had to change my position in order to get paid. I was making more than some of the big men there.

I have to work on the side to keep a flow!

Great Company... THEY PAID ME EVERY DIME THEY OWED ME....

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Look! I had to post this because I have done work for this company for at least 2 years now. Don't believe everything you hear. These are very fair and honest people. But they are business people too. Just because certain Sub Contractors say they are owed money doesn't always mean it's true.. I know the owner Chris Newton very well. He is a VERY fair guy. If he truly owes you he will pay you. If you don't do the job right or if it's bad quality then chances are your not going to get paid. SIMPLE!! Stone Way has over 80 employees and at least 300 sub contractors. If they didn't pay their bills then you would see many more post.. I have personally performed over $120k worth of work for them and they paid me EVERYTHING.. Do your research. Call them and ask them. I'm sure they would be glad to show you the truth.. I would work for them any day of the week. As a matter of fact I am working for them now. I am honored to be working for them. And the reason they continue to ask me to work for them is because I do a good job for them.....

I have tried to communicate with several people with Stoneway Builders and noone seems to know nothing. Stoneway Builders is the most unorganized company i have ever known and noone there seems to care about nothing. Im in the whole THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS doing work for them and not getting payed. Im having to take them to court just to get what is rightfully owed to me so please people BEWARE BEFORE YOU WORK FOR STONEWAY BUILDERS!

I also want to add, Stoneway Builders owes me over 10,000 dollars. The labor board and others have stepped in to try to help get my money owed.

I would suggest if they owe you money for work performed on your behalf to file court paperwork, call the labor board, contact the BBB and any other resources that help employed fight against companies like Stoneway Builders that think it is ok to get others to do there work and not pay them. Good luck to you all and don't give up.

Stone Way Builders Group - Stone Way Builder Group Work Experience Review from Decatur, Georgia

I worked for Highland Park Apts located at 461 Forest Hill Road in Macon Ga. I was hired by Miguel Trigo of Four Seasons Construction. Miguel was hired by Chris Newton of Conyers GA. Chris is the owner of Highland Park Apts, Stoneway Builders and Quantam Construction. My job was to rent a box truck for the pickup and delivery of materials to Highland Park Apts, transport crew members from Atlanta to Macon, distribute payroll to contractors,hire new crew members for the project in Macon and a commercial project in Columbia SC. I also had to rent a (12) passenger van to transport the crew members. This timeframe was from September 1-11,2014. I also transported Miguel Trigo back and forth from Atlanta to Lawrenceville GA, Conyers, Covington and Doraville GA. I have a current balance of $5,000 for the box truck rental for the mileage working that both parties are now ignoring my phone calls to compensate me and also the crew members I hired. I've spoken with Chris Newton a few times to straighten this out, but so far all I've experienced is unprofessionalism and discrimination dealing with these two people that I've found out after the fact that Miguel Trigo and Chris Newton are unlicensed contractors within the State of Georgia. I filed a compliance complaint against Miguel Trigo 9/11/14 and filed on Chris Newton 10/16/14. I've also spoken with a Lawyer recently on employment law to be compensated. But, because of the. Number of employees that wasn't paid to, Im considering being the represenative for us all for a class action lawsuit

I'm not sure who you guys are that are leaving the bad reviews. If you have a dispute you can email me chris@***.com.

Please stop trying to slander us. If we truly owe you then we owe you and let's get it settled. But lets do it the right way.

I'm sure there is a paper trail and we just need to find it and resolve it. Otherwise leave us alone.

I have over 600 guys working for me now.

Some of you are the same *** guys that come on here trying to smear someones name. Fact is you do *** work and that's why you don't get paid.

I personally know they do millions of dollars worth of business and people get paid everyday. IF YOU DO YOUR JOB CORRECTLY.. Get a life people.

This is a good reputable company that does honest business. They probably don't owe you a dime!!!
