Sam was wonderful. We needed our backyard waterproofed after hurricane Ida flooded our basement. We hired Sam and he showed up on time, he communicated clearly and finished the job as promised. I would absolutely recommend him for home repairs!

It is individuals like Sam who give contractors a bad name. Sam promptly responded to our inquiry for a pro from Home Advisor. He was very charming and gave good suggestions about how to tackle the repairs we wanted done. He agreed to complete those repairs and paint our duplex apartment as requested. We made it very clear that we had a tight deadline, particularly with regard to the painting. Sam assured us that he had a large crew of professionals who had worked for him for a long time and would definitely do a great job in time allotted, which he estimated would be three days. He even insisted that his crew would work through the holiday weekend to meet our deadline, though this was not requested. With these assurances, we chose him over another contractor who had put in a bid for the job and agreed that one-third of the cost would be paid before the job began, one-third after day two and the final portion upon completion. He arrived with his foreman and two painters at the agreed upon time. He set them up and then left. The crew spent a full day doing a simple paint job, in a virtually empty space, painting white over white. Unfortunately, they did an absolutely horrible job, leaving inexplicable streaks and obvious gaps on every wall, and in some places used the wrong paint. They did not do things that any credible painter would do, i.e. taping, filling in small holes with putty, etc. We saw this after getting home from work that evening and decided to wait until the next morning to discuss with Sam. The team was supposed to arrive at 8:00am next morning for the second day of work, but never showed. When called at about 8:30am, Sam said that neither he nor his crew were going to come because they had another job to do. We were incredulous because, we were guaranteed that the workers would be on the job that day. When we explained the problems with the first day's work Sam came over. At first he refused to admit to all the problems. He literally said that if we wanted things like taping (so the light switches wouldnâ t be painted over, etc.) or holes filled in, we had to pay EXTRA! To be clear, we were very explicit about the scope of the work before signing the agreement. After admitting to the obvious problems, he then said he was not going to send anyone to fix the mess that was made until we gave him MORE MONEY. He quickly went from Mr. Charm to being unbelievably nasty, trying to play us for fools. Perhaps he figured he had us over a barrel because we needed the work done quickly?! We refused to pay another cent for work that was so substandard. We had already paid for one-third of the work (repairs and painting) and literally nothing was actually accomplished since none of the repairs were addressed. The crew even painted over areas that were scheduled for repairs without doing the repairs! Based on Samâ s response to our concerns, we could not bank on anything being fixed properly. He did not come back. We ended up redoing everything his workers touched, spending on both labor and more paint and completed the job with a quickly cobbled together team from Task Rabbit. The bottom line, stay away from Perfect General Contracting. Sam is a condescending scammer and should not be recommended by Home Advisor. He essentially stole our money and spun a web of lies and deceit. Shameful!

Response from Company:

I tried my best to finish the job on time,it wasnt our fault the tenants should be held responsible for the delay, she asked me rudely for more work which wasn?t under the contract I gave her a reasonable price on her request of more work but she didn?t want to pay me. She has made a several rooms illegally and rented them out to the students and the students didn?t give us the chance to finish the job because the students wouldn?t let us in and work in the rooms. They wasted a lot of our money and our time. She was rudely yelling at my workers in my absence and she kicked them out. She always had complaints. She still owes us money.
