Ball Construction Inc.
I was referred to him by a relative. He was very nice on the phone. He came out and gave me an estimate on some window work. I had to call him to get the estimate though. He told me he could start by Monday, he thought. He'd have to call me back to verify. No call back. No answer when I called. No return calls from my messages. It is now Wednesday night and still nothing. I guess Ball Construction must be in such demand that he doesn't need the business.
Ditto on megregor rating and comments. We used him for a lot of work this past summer 2011 for two houses. Does good work and is reasonable. Comes across as a real nice guy. But he has got to be the world's worst person for returning phone calls. If there were an Olympic event for that, he would get the gold medal. He told us he ordered a window for us and never got back to us. Called him for 3 months straight and never got a return call--not even one. Luckily we had not given him any money on it. I insist on the work being performed first. THEN I pay. Period. Also referred him to a relative for painting a house. He came and gave a bid, but never even started the work. They called him numerous times and he never returned their phone calls either. My conclusion is he is a total jerk and I would not hire him again to walk my dog.
Nice guy, good references, and good work BUT he didn't finish and disappeared with $450 worth of work paid for and yet to be done (windows). Didn't respond to emails or calls and has never returned to finish up. So our rating is a big fat ZERO, most unfortunately (although it shows up here as one star because I had to put a star rating in order to post). USER BEWARE!!!
