Troubleshooters: Contractor vs. Contractor

Posted: Updated:

We have a 'first' on today's Troubleshooters.  A contractor calls with a complaint about another contractor.

"He's a real strong bs'er.  Real strong.  He sounds quite convincing in his bull**** !"

That's Dale Roff, a contractor, talking about Phillip Contreras, another contractor.  The same Phillip Contreras who was the subject of a complaint from another customer in our story last Friday.

Roff says he hired Contreras to tape, float, and paint his townhome months ago.  "Gave him a $1000.00 check and $500.00 cash," Roff told the Troubleshooters.

He showed us a picture of what his place looked like after Contreras was apparently done.  "You can see those spots where he had done the tape and float, but hadn't painted them.  They were quite obvious."  

So Roff says he hired another contractor and paid him another $500.00 to finish the job Contreras started.  Roff says he thought about taking Contreras to small claims court, but "I got the distinct impression that you were not going to get Phillip Contreras to do anything he said he was going to do."

The Troubleshooters called Contreras and he called us back and gave us his side of this story. "I finished the job and I did it and he wanted me to redo it," he claimed before hanging up on us.
Roff would like a $500.00 refund from Contreras, but at this point that appears unlikely. "He said I'm not giving you a refund."
