Hired this contractor to install new vinyl siding on my entire home. Contract was signed. Job cost $22,000. Unfornatley gave a total of $12,000 in cash (would ONLY accept cash) Started the work, did less than half the house and DEMANDED payment in full to COMPLETE the work. I declined and he pulled all of his workers off the job and QUIT! Has not come back, left a huge mess and now I must try to hire someone else. to finish the work. My wife and I our seniors. He had also wanted to do additionl work for additional money, but we delclined on that!!

He also canvased the rest of the neghborhood with his glossy 9 x 6.5 post cards about all of his home improvment services, my immediate neighbor recieved 2 cards!
