Frequently disappeared for 1 to 4 weeks at a time without advance or after-the-fact notice, without answering or returning calls, returning to work without explanation. 2 to 3 months of work has dragged on over 10 months. After convincing me to make final progress payment, abandoned contract without finishing remaining work or returning wood trim pieces and other paid-for materials still in his shop. Work progressed slowly while quality suffered from lack of attention - using wrong measurements, forgetting steps that require undoing other completed work in order to correct, making tolerances too tight like door stops and frames too tight to door so they bind and scrape. Failed to correct problems before abandoning contract. Will be out significant money to have other contractors complete abandoned work and correct problems.
