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?
