Deficient work, theft, deceptive business practices
Contacted Brent Cardwell regarding a bid for remodeling of 3 bathrooms and a kitchen. Prior to signing the contract to begin work questioned him about his licensure status as a licensed bonded contractor. He represented that he was in fact licensed and bonded. Initiated contract and paid him $16,500 as an initial deposit. The paperwork and his emails to me confirm that deposit was for each part of the work $4,125 for each bathroom and the kitchen. Contract states for all work and materials to complete the remodel. Contractor was provided a scope document including materials specifications. Job was to take two months per the contract Work began on 5/7 with all supplies arriving on site. Demo began on the lower floor bathroom. It took nearly two weeks for demolishing phase to be complete. During this time numerous workmanship flaw began to materialize which contractor was quick to correct. When the lower bathroom work was about 25% complete contractor requested other progress payments to begin work on another bathroom. After two months, only two bathrooms has been started and neither was more than 30% through the agreed work and scope. At this point a total of $26,500 was paid to the contractor. Note that per the contract totally complete work for both bathrooms totaled $31,000. As work on the second bathroom progressed, we noticed significant workmanship defects. During the course of the work they used such invasive tools that it resulted in the ceiling above my child's room to detach from the framing and drywall to fall. Brent said he would correct it. They installed tile crooked and unevenly throughout the bathroom which he said he would correct, they installed baseboard in a non-standard fashion which he said he would correct. Then in early July contractor while on the site brought his known aggressive dog onto our property unbeknownst to us. His dog in a matter of 5 minutes of us being home attacked and killed our dog. This was reported to City of Chelan police, animal control and human society. We lost our pet, received 2200 in vet bills and our kids are currently in counseling after witnessing the incident. Post the death Brent stated his intention to finish the work and make amends. Approximately 3 weeks later Brent removed all materials for the job from my lot, removed my personal tools and all else and abandoned the job. The toilet, him and his unlicensed worker installed flooded my sons room with waste due to incorrect installation. The shower pan drain installed was not hooked up the waste line and flooded my sons room when tested. Items he removed temporarily were left outside in the rain and damaged. None of the defective installations of other materials were fixed and all materials on site removed, theft. In the end contractor stole 15k worth of money that was not due as the work was not done. Of the work that was done we are now receiving bids in excess of $30,000.00 to correct his deficient work and damages caused. User's recommendation: Run away from this smooth talking con-man.
