There are two sides to every story. When we got involved with Mr. Gupta, we were under the impression we would be paid in a timely manner, and we were working with a straight shooter. We were fooled. After two bounced checks, and asking us to lie to a bank, we really didn't want anymore part in this matter. We didn't steal fron anyone, if anything we still aren't paid the full balance for all the change orders Gupta added separate to our intital agreement. Gupta, bad mouthing people who have bent over backwards for you, to ensure your store got open when you couldn't even pay suppliers, is bad news. We wish you well, and would appreciate all facts being displayed before pointing fingers. Have a great day.

10/07/2017OverallWe chose Innovated Construction to build back our gas station on June 2016. At first, the project was seeming to go right and on schedule. As it got closer to the end, thats where the project took a downfall. The project manager kept promising a completion day, but failed many times to be done by that time period. Also, another problem we are still putting up with Mr. Randy Green (project manager) and his team is that they still have not finished the entire job after a whole year. First of all, a night window was to be put in with a drawer which Mr. Green claims to have possession of, but will not come and install it. Second, he has been paid to rebuild the carwash back, but never came back to even finish that. Thirdly, he still has our beer turf which has already been paid for, but not even delivered yet. Fourth, he did not even give us matching shelves with our counter shelves which he claims it still has to be paid for, but who would buy the whole counter display without matching shelves. Fifth, the hood he installed is already giving us problems. This list could go on and on, but I will leave to right here.This construction company is not a good professional company to go with to complete your construction needs. They may have a good price which is neither too cheap or expensive. The people running this business may end up cheating you out of your money. We are writing this message after failing many attempts to reach out to this company to finish their job and leaving with the only option of going to court. We just want to inform others before your cheated out of your hardworking money.

Anthony will not pay his subcontractors after he is paid. He does not have a crew and takes the money and splits.

Quinlan Construction Services
Contracted for $3500 master bath work (new shower and tile floor). We added a hall bath caulk job and he ran into unexpected work underneath our shower. Approximately halfway through the job, he sent an unprofessional text stating that he might go out of business because he was losing so much money on our job (we didn't set the contract price, he did). We offered to pay more because of the extra work and he responded with a request for $1500 more, or 40% over the contract price. I asked for a write-up of the extra expenses so we could work something out and he became belligerent and threatened small claims court if we did not pay. I fired him then and he demanded $3303 of the original $3500 for a job about 45-55% complete. If we didn't pay that, he said he would file a mechanic's lien on our home. We left him a check for $1000 in addition to the $1000 down payment, or $2000 total, for the work he had done. He wrote "VOID" on the check and taped it to our front door. He then told us he would go file the mechanic's lien and proceeded to write several more unprofessional e-mails. He ended with this e-mail: The lien was put on your house on Friday stupid. I am going to get a judgement against you and freeze your assets until I get paid...I am clairvoyant and he must be psychic because he can predict how long showers can last from a picture. I left XXXXX (name redacted) construction a nice message and tomorrow I am calling BBB about his email badmouthing me that is defamation of character. The bottom line is you are void of morals and virtues and I wish to God that our paths had never crossed. We will both present our case and the judge will make a decision and if I lose I could care less and if I win that is even better. Pieces of ***** like you that think they can screw people over and get away with it need to be held accountable and your judgement day is coming."

Top Notch Material And Distribution
Left a job I had to go work for this company only to be let go after a week because I could not on less than 24 hours notice drive a company truck for a pick up and delivery in Arkansas. And if that wasn't enough being told by management that I would receive two weeks pay so I could find another job well needless to say I got a one week payment with 2 weeks noted in the year to date amount. This company clearly has no concern for its employees!!!

The workers at Fred M Luth and Sons were doing a sewer repair for the metropolitan sewer district in the street outside of my home. I was impressed with how courteous all of the men were and how much they tried to limit the inconvenience for my neighbors and I

Ron is a thief! Never provide any "deposit" up front. Do not hire him! He stole $2100 claiming it was a deposit for labor and materials. Check multiple bad reviews on BBB!!

PREMIER HANDYMAN CONTRACTORS
Premier put up our Christmas lights this year (2016). This is no easy feat with our circa 1927, two-story craftsman. Our very steep gable and oversize dormer require some serious roofing equipment and know-how. It took a little while to get the job done (mostly due to lousy St. Louis weather), but the final product was worth the wait.Thanks, Premier!-SB
Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
