We are starting a new siding project for a homeowner in Atlanta. This homeowner, unfortunately got taken advantage of by his previous contractor. This contractor had sided several home in the subdivision and apparently did good job. Why would someone worry about him not doing just as good a job of them? Well more than half done, the owner paid the contractor a progress payment and he never came back to finish the job. He left 1/3 of the home untouched and also retained a deposit for the front door that was never ordered! No return calls and no way to find him.
Unfortunately, this happens often in our industry! I have heard this same story almost verbatim a few dozen times at least. A more common story is leaving the job perhaps 5% incomplete. Hundreds of stories there… After doing some due diligence and reading numerous reviews on Schantz, he chose to hire us. We are glad to be able to help him. Take heed. You cannot rely on neighborhood contractors without vetting them out. Do a GA corporation search, check reviews online, view their website, check the BBB. If you can’t get good information on them, you will be a high risk. Again, this happens everyday and for most people are shocked they got taken. Our industry is full of these people. Protect yourself. Do your research.
