First I want to say I had been a QA/QC manager for 3 years at a major company who rebuilt trains & warned all the contractors at time of bid/estimate if you can't handle that DO NOT BID! I am willing to pay more for a quality job. We supplied @$500 in material our selves. The first day Roger Pike & his father Wendell Pike showed up 3 days late, they were using a saw-saw instead of circular saw to cut 2x4's, 2x6's, etc. When I questioned this Wendell & Roger said some bull about the only circular saw being on a different job crew. I said they 'only cost @ $40.00!. They said only having one keeps it (the saw) from getting stolen. I knew then we were in trouble. Many broken promises & not finishing a job. The mickey mouse duo were not even qualified to be amateurs in home improvements. They cut corners every place they could. I actually fell thru the brand new front porch steps they built less than 2 weeks old. I was told 'Not to jump up & down on steps'. Your kidding. I was hurt pretty bad. The 2-3 week total time for completion became 8 weeks before I said no more. A BRAND NEW $200.00 window installed in pump house has paint on it's sides from being ripped out from another location! Rear porch roof was hacked at new roof we had put on the house @3-4 years ago & left open to let the rain come in & damage ceiling in house. Wendell screamed 'No way' it is his fault, 'You are making things up!' Repeatedly did not show up as promised, claimed car 'won't start' & yet the crews said different. Their crews were just as bad on knowing what they were doing. Both Roger & Wendell kept trying to get more money. When we gave in we never saw Roger again or talked to him on phone. They frequently blocked us so we couldn't ask why they didn't show up as promised. We verified this by calling on a different phone & he answered., shocked it was us. They also had no address on the contracts, they wanted cash only, I paid via check which they immediately went to my bank & cashed the checks. Assets seem well hidden. Other contractors asked to bid on finishing the porch roof refused unless they ripped out his out of square & extremely unsafe rafters & underlayment etc. They used dry wall screws to frame porch floor in areas! (They rust & would collapse). Wendell actually texted me & said: "If you know so much about contracting, why didn't you do it yourself?" None of the 3 jobs are complete at all. I have gone to the police it is that bad. See warning on web by someone else AFTER we hired them . Google: roger pike bad contractor or Wendell Pike They seem to have a habit of excuses & not finishing any jobs.They also use different names:R7W Painting, R&W remodeling, R&W contracting, R&W Home Improvement, Roger's (this or that), or similiar names. They also needed to use our tools a lot, contract for 2x8 rafters & joists at 16 oc & install 2x6 on 24 oc with curved boards. I also have a yard of trash & full of construction debris I now will have to pay again for someone to remove. They also refuse to supply the name of their insurer that they showed me paperwork at bid to cover damage done to property. I have @400 pictures before, during, & after for proof of above and some text messages to/from them.. If you have already been 'got', contact the NY state police or reports@badbusiness-alerts.com

IT'S AN ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE! The work that was done was done poorly and incompletely. I've had to fix & finish it myself. The 2-3-man crew wouldn't work on Mondays, Fridays or weekends. On the 3 days a week they did work they'd show up around 10am, put in 2 or 3 hours and leave. They tore off my old gutters, didn't even haul they away and then left me with no gutters at all for a whole month during which it rained heavily, causing a damp basement and other problems. When they did return to install the gutters they did a half-assed, unfinished job in which water now runs off the roof between the gutters and fascia. For more than 3 months they've promised to come back and fix them, as well as finish all the other work, but have never shown up on the many occasions they said they would. The remaining work, for which they received a sizeable down payment (to "cover materials") has never even been started. They were paid in full for the painting and deck work even though thought it wasn't finished because they promised they'd do that along with everything else. Big mistake! HOMEOWNERS BEWARE this father-and-son team of Roger (son) and Wendell Pike, sometimes doing business also as R&W Contracting or variations thereof, operating primarily in Schuyler, Yates, Steuben, Tompkins & Chemung counties (NY). They are INEPT AND UNRELIABLE. Do not hire these guys no matter what they say or how much money they promise to save you! And if you're foolish enough to do it anyway, do not pay them much upfront or give them final payment until the work is finished and done 100% to your satisfaction. And be sure they give you a valid, VERIFIABLE business address so you can take them to court later! Update 3/26/2014: Since my initial complaint I?ve found that the paint they applied to my deck (which was a top-quality brand) was put on incorrectly, resulting in significant peeling and erosion over the winter. Wendell Pike contacted me in October, admitting that they hadn?t finished the work and promising yet again do so before the month?s end. Once again, that didn?t happen.
