Please be careful which CON- tractor you use!
Do your background check or you will end up paying for it!

Call the BBB and ask for references and make sure they are licensed and bonded and never pay them before the job is done and never lend a contractor money if they ask for it or an advance!

    POOL REFURBISHING
    $9,275
    RIP OFF CONTRACTOR

    Owner Jesus Marquez of ABC Construction Contractors with addresses at two locations: 2814 Louisville Avenue and 1535 Bob Goalby Lane in El Paso, Texas agreed and signed a contract on 7/18/15 to refurbish existing pool to be completed in 14 days. On 7/25/15 an amendment was agreed and signed for a surrounding fence enclosure, removal of existing equipment. 
    $5,750.00 was paid to Jesus Marquez on 7/25/15 to start the project. Although not as agreed by the contract, an additional $1825.00 was requested to order the pool equipment from FM Pool Center and this was paid on 8/17/15. On 9/1/15, an additional $1700.00 was paid to Jesus Marquez for workmanship costs of retaining wall. On 9/3/15, $875.00 was requested for a back flow system. 
    As of 10/10/15, only a substandard pool decking with multiple flaws, a retaining wall and installation of tile have been completed. Jesus Marquez has removed all his work equipment from our residence and has stopped all work because he cannot proceed with work until he is provided with additional money to complete the project. The sum total paid out to Jesus Marquez is not equivalent to the quality and extent of what has been completed thus far. According to the terms of the contract, balance is due after the refurbishing of the pool is completed. He threatened to go to El Paso Police Department to file a claim against us. Our goal continues to have the completion of this July contracted 2-week project completed by the end of the month of October 2015 without rendering additional monies until the project is completed according to contract specifications. 
    We have enlisted the assistance of the Better Business Bureau and owner did not honor his agreement to provide proof contrary to our complaint of contractural breaches. We have filed a police report and have filed in small claims court. Avoid the nightmare of litigation! Do not use this contractor
