1 Review for Home Improvement Specialists
$10,000 - $49,999
I entered into a contract with Home Improvement Specialists on October 6, 2014 in Kerrville, Texas, Kerr County for a turn-key job to build a wrap around deck with a full wrap railing, ADA ramp, two sets of stairs & a wrap around metal roof with decking. This contract included all materials, labor and a completion time of 2 weeks for a total of $18,000.00. I paid $12,000.00 for the material on 10-6-14. They received a labor draw for $3,000.00 on 10-10-14. The remaining $3,000.00 was to be due upon completion of job. On October 17th they told me that they needed $4,500.00 in addition to the contract or he would be unable to complete the job. They complained that he was unable to pay labor out to his employees and had no money for material! During the 2 weeks he was on my property building I noticed he has brand new hand tools, tables saws, metal saw horses, wheel barrows, tool belts, tarps, etc. Home Improvement Specialists squandered the material money and purchased a new rig up for his business and then sobbed that he had no money to finish the job & attempted to carry the burden over to me at my expense. I already paid for all the material and I am missing decking boards, deck screws, rafters, 5/8" decking for the roof and the metal sheets for the roof and the metal flashing, rail boards and hog panels for the wrap around hand railing. Home Improvement Specialists has not shown up since Oct. 21st. He left me with an unfinished deck and I had already paid him $15,000.00. I have called but he never answered my calls or returned my messages. He carries his cell phone with him at all times.
