Complaint: Hired Bruce Howard in January 2016 to put in tile flooring, Granite countertops, paint, install kitchen backsplash, hang a few lighting fixtures. He owns Reliable Local Contrractor but has other names he’s using. He asked for half the money up front 8,000 and then we have him another 2,800 before the project was finished. He only came to work Tuesday thru Thursday from 12pm to 3pm. We discussed the fact that we had a limited time of 3-4 weeks to complete the project and he agreed. Two months into the project we had expressed our concern because our vacation date was almost here and he was weeks over on the project. I kept asking him if he was going to get me the granite guy … Something I had been asking him from the beginning but he kept blowing me off. He only had part of the time done and a few walls painted in two months. When we confronted him and asked if he would be finished he went into a rage and said a far away place had our tile and he wasn’t about to drive an hour away to pick it up. We offered to go get the tile but he never returned our calls. We gave him 10,800 dollars and the only thing we have to show for it is uncompleted tile and a few painted walls. I didn’t check his online reviews because he was recommended by a friend. I will never make that mistake again. We now are in the process of hiring another contractor.
