On April 15, 2009 I drew up a written contract with Dutton Matter Construction. Terry Dutton insisted on 1/2 of the money $2500.00 given to him so he could purchase supplies to repair my deck and overhang that was destroyed in a Feb 2009 ice storm. He and a helper brought some lumber to the site and the helper started the project. On April 23, 2009 Terry came and asked for another $1700.00 "so he could pay the help". When I protested he got angry. I ended up giving him the money. From that day on there was very little work done and what was done was of a very poor quality. I began to doubt whether either of these two guys had the amount of experience they bragged about. Terry gave me every excuse as to why he was not here working on my repair project, "I'm sick, it is supposed to rain, I have to go to Florida". Then he just would not answer my phone calls. The last day any work was done by Dutton Matter was on April 28th,2009. I never did see Terry Dutton do any construction work. He hauled lumber etc. but never did any construction work. After a month went by and still no co-operation from either Terry Dutton or his worker I started a small claims court proceeding. The sheriff served the papers and Terry Dutton did not show up for the court date. I won the case but since he does not own anything or have a bank account, there is no way to collect my money. This man is a con and a thief.
