Bill came out to give me an estimate but I never heard back from him.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Bill from Bill of all Trades came to my home several weeks ago to see what work I needed down.  I need a bedroom completed with baseboards and painting, laminate flooring replaced in my hallway, a hole fixed in the wall behind my front door and some other tasks that needed to be completed.  Unfortunately, I never heard back from him with an estimate of how much the job would cost.

Bill gave me a date and time of when he'd be out to look over my project and give me a price.  He never showed.  He called later that same night and told me that he had run out of gas on his way to my house, along with getting lost.  He apoligized and said he'd be out first thing in the morning.  We got up early awaiting his arrival.  He finally called about 45 minutes later and said something had...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Called Bill to come out and give me an estimate for a deck around an 18 ft.above ground pool that I just had installed.  I wanted a splash deck on the side of the pool and a walkway to go around the entire pool.

wow. Slamming my professionalism because I didn't call you back? I am sorry but I have been taking care of others and have not had time to design your deck, which by the way, takes time. I should have called you, and I dropped the ball. I hope you can forgive me. I am truly sorry, but I have a hard time keeping up. We are small and our work load is heavy. I hope the man you hired builds you an awe...

HORRIBLE!!!!! OVER PRICED!!!!! THREATENING PHONE CALLS TO REMOVE THE FIRST HONEST REVIEW!!!!! MADE ME PURCHASE MY OWN PARTS AND THEN JACKED UP THE PRICE BY 25%!!!!!! I WILL NEVER HIRE AGAIN, AND WILL RECOMMEND TO MY BEST FRIENDS TO NEVER HIRE!!!!!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Bill sent me out to get a garbage disposal to be installed plus the following day. Bill took his lunch break to get plumbing apparatus. He connected the garbage disposal and the dishwasher  on the same, I repeat same water disposal line!!!!!! the plumber who had to come out on a Saturday and fix bill's screw up charged out the wozzoa!!!!! Bill and Donnie were rude! They were cussing the entire time they poorly misinstalled the garbage disposal and Bill took the old garbage disposal with him. I do hope he properly disposed of the used disposal per osha and tosha regulations........ I would seriously think twice or three times about bill doing any work!!!! *********this time Bill required $$cash$$$ plus me the purchase the parts!!!!! Bill did not install the new disposal cuff and took the extra *****new**** parts that came with the disposal with him!!!!! Bill has threatened me several times on my voicemail that he was going to hire an attorney and was wanting to know why the garbage disposal review was not on here. One the first threat that he was going to hire a lawyer( and this is not being his first threat of this, if you will read my  previous post) Bill is recorded on my answering machine more than 5 times stating that if I did not take the review down and this and that he woudl make me sorry!!!!

We are not sure how to respond to this, or this "member's" report. Thank you for taking the time to read my side of the story, please read the remainder of my reports for a more accurate, less crazy version of the truth. It is clear from our previous reports where we received high marks that something is quite wrong here. The question is: Is this lady telling the truth; any of the truth, or are th...

HORRIBLE!!!! BILL INTIMATED ME INTO PAYING HIS BAIT AND SWITCH BILL. BILL REQUESTED THE CHECK BE MADE OUT TO WILLIAM HARDING NOT BILL OF ALL TRADES SO HE WOULD NOT HAVE TO PAY TAXES ON HIS COMPANY. HE EVEN HAS IT WRITTEN ON THE BOTTOM OF HIS STATEMENT. THE CEILING WORK IS VERY SHODDY!!!! HE FILLED ON DEFECTS HE PERFORMED WITH THE SHEETROCK HE HUNG ON THE CEILING!!! HE MISCUT HIS SHEETROCK , LEAVIN...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
When I scheduled the inital appointment it was for new bathroom ceiling, to remove the old ceiling and hang new sheetrock and finish it out. The price he quoted over the phone for 2 sheets of sheetrock and to finish it out was 400.00. When Bill arrived I asked him to rehang 2 ceiling fans. He stated that would cost  75.00 each for a total of 150.00 for hanging the ceiling fans with medallions. WITH PAYING THE PRICE. HE WAS VERY ANGRY!!! HE WHINED AND SAID THAT HE DIDN'T LIKE MY HUSBAND WATCHING HIM!!!! WELL OF COURSE MY HUSBAND IS GOING TO WATCH HIM........HANDYMEN HAVE STICKY FINGERS ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY LEAVE ANGRILY AND ARE THROWING THINGS AROUND AND RIPPING UP THE PLASTIC So now the total is going to be 400.00 for the new bathroom ceiling and 150.00 for the ceiling fans CHANGED THE PRICE AFTER HE HAD THE BATHROOM HALF DONE TO 788.83. HE GOT ANGRY AND STARTED TAKING ALL OF THE THINGS OUT OF THE BATHROOM WHEN WE QUESTIONED THE BILL. HE STATED THAT HE NORMALLY WORKS FOR $30-$40 PER HOUR WITH $20.00 PER HOUR FOR EACH ASSISTANT. I ASKED HIM WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PRICE HE QUOTED ME AND HE SAID THAT HE WORKED HARD AND THAT I HAD SAID HE WAS DOING A GOOD JOB. HE PUT ALL OF HIS TOOLS IN HIS BIG CHEVROLET TAHOE AND LEFT. HE CALLED ME ON THE PHONE AFTER HE LEFT THAT ***WOULD NOT*** BE BACK SINCE WE DISAGREED COVERING ON THE FLOOR TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO MY CARPET. BILL SAID HE WOULD JUST CALL HIS LAWYER AN TAKE US TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT, AND THE JOB WAS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING DONE!!!!! BILL MADE ME FEEL THAT I HAD TO PAY HIM OR PAY SOMEONE ELSE TO FINISH HIS WORK AND GO TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT. SO I AGREED TO PAY HIM AND TOLD HIM TO COME BACK TO THE HOUSE AND I WOULD PAY HIM THE $788.83 EVEN THOUGH THE JOB WAS NOT CLOSE TO FINISHED! I HAVE DEALT WITH CONTRACTORS BEFORE AND THEY HAVE NEVER CHANGED THE PRICE MID JOB WITHOUT EXPLAINING THE PRICE WOULD BE GOING UP BEFORE DOING THE JOB. BILL WAS VERY UNPROFESSIONAL BY QUOTING A PRICE THE INCREASING THE PRICE. I HAVE NEVER DEALT WITH A CONTRACTOR WHO USES THE ****BAIT AND SWITCH PRICE***** HE WENT FROM A PRICE OF 450.00 TO A PRICE OF 788.83 WITHOUT TELLING US THE PRICE WOULD BE INCREASING BEFORE PERFORMING THE WORK SO WE COULD HAVE DISCUSSED AMONG OURSELVES WHETHER WE WANTED HIM TO PERFORM THE WORK. MY HUSBAND TOLD HIM THAT HE HAD DONE THIS SAME WORK MANY TIMES BUT HE DID NOT LIKE HANGING THE SHEETROCK OVERHEAD. BILL STATED OVER THE PHONE WHEN HE LEFT ANGRILY HALF WAY THROUGH THE JOB THAT WE OBVIOUSLY WERE NOT HURTING FOR MONEY AND WE SHOULD NOT HAVE HESITATED ON PAYING HIS INCREASED BILL!!!!! I TRIED EXPLAINING TO HIM THAT IT WAS LIKE STICKER SHOCK WHEN HE INCREASED THE PRICE OF THE JOB HALF WAY THROUGH THE JOB.......SO WE OBVIOUSLY HAD TO PAY HIS INCREASED PRICE!!!!! I FEEL SORRY FOR OTHER PEOPLE THAT HE DOES WORK FOR, HE CHANGES THE PRICE FROM A TOTAL PRICE TO $30-40 PER HOUR LABOR. He quoted that the total job would be 3 to 4 days. He was in and out of my house for 10 days. The professionalism is not there. At the end of the 10 days and us having to schedule our lives around his coming and going in and out of our house to apply coats of  drywall mud around the tape on the ceiling. Bill did not clean up the mess left in my ceiling. Bill is very RUDE and he blames everything on his helper Donnie. He left a caulking gun cartridge on my cherry bed that cost well over $1200.00, ruining the bed. THE CHERRY FINISH WAS RUINED HE DID NOT OFFER  TO HAVE IT FIXED. HE LEFT A MESS ALL OVER THE COUNTER TOPS, THE CLOSETS THAT IS ATTACHED TO THE BATHROOM! SO ALL IN ALL I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE!!!! HE HAD RIPPED UP THE CARPET PROTECTOR HALF WAY THROUGH THE DRYWALL JOB. MY CARPETS HAVE TO BE CLEANED THERE IS DRYWALL MUD BURIED IN MY CARPET. MY BED IS GOING TO HAVE TO BE REPAIRED. I WISH I COULD POST PICTURES OF THE GRADE F WORK HE DID ON MY CEILING,CARPETS AND MY CHERRY BED! WHEN HE HUNG THE DRYWALL HE LEFT A SPACE IN THE  CORNER OF THE BATHROOM CEILING, HE RIGGED IT UP BY FILLING THE CORNER SPACE THAT IS APPROX. 1/2 AND INCH FROM THE SHEETROCK TO THE TOP OF THE WALL. HE RIGGED IT UP BY FILLING THE SPACE UP WITH TAPE AND DRYWALL MUD. VERY BAD WORK!!!!! THE CEILING FANS THAT HE REHUNG AND PLACED MEDALLIONS AT THE BASE OF THE CEILING FAN AND IS ON THE CEILING ARE VERY LOOSE. BILL LEFT A MESS ALL OVER MY CLOTHES THAT HE REQUESTED I TAKE OUT OF MY CLOSET SO HE WOULD HAVE ACCESS TO MY ATTIC CRAWL SPACE. THE CLOTHES WERE LEFT COVERED WITH PIECES OF CEILING DRYWALL MUD AND INSULATION FROM MY ATTIC. HE HAD THE NERVE TO PUT ON HIS BILL A CLEANING CHARGE WHEN HE DID NOT CLEAN ANYTHING. HE LEFT A MESS ALL OVER MY CLOTHES WITH THE FIRST CEILING FAN. WITH THE SECOND CEILING FAN IN THE KITCHEN HE LEFT A MESS ALL OVER MY KITCHEN TABLE THAT WAS UNDERNEATH THE FAN! HE COULD HAVE PLACED A COVERSHEET OVER MY TABLE AND MY BERBER RUG UNDERNEATH THE TABLE. HE MADE A **HUGE**MESS AND HAD THE AUDACITY TO CHARGE CLEAN UP FEE AND THERE WAS A MESS LEFT ALL OVER MY TABLE AND ALL OVER MY FLOOR!!!! I SPENT THE AFTERNOON SWEEPING, MOPPING AND CLEANING THE INSULATION THAT DROPPED FROM MY ATTIC , PIECES OF DRYWALL MUD FROM THE CEILING AND DUST FROM THE ATTIC!!!! HE DID A VERY,VERY BAD JOB AND I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE!!!!!!

I'm sorry I never got to meet Bill. The worker he sent did a good job of trying to install the mailbox and did a good job inside the house. I tried to get a mailbox and post like my neighbor's new one but the post i purchased was much shorter. He had to work hard to get the old one out and the new one looked silly next to my neighbor's very tall mailbox. I called the PO and found out the regulatio...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
New mailbox installed, two pictures hung and towel bars installed.
