Work Description: Legal Eagle was my general contractor on a complete renovation of kitchen and downstairs.Comments: Legal Eagle Contractors is the worst contractor I have ever worked with in my life and I have had four homes remodeled. Told three months it turned into 14 and is not even finished as Legal Eagle Contractors abandoned the project. Maybe Legal Eagles was top notch once but that is a thing of the past. Legal Eagles hires sub contractors who cut corners, did shoddy work and counted on the fact that the Project Manager did not have a basic understanding of construction. Call me, I can give examples for hours. We lived in our home during the remodel and blocked off the back part of the house (kitchen and family room for remodel down to the studs). I came home on more than one occasion and workers were wandering in the house, as they came through the barricade. This was a 6 figure plus remodel. Legal Eagle was also creative with the accounting and would start facets of the remodel, get paid in full for that part of the project but then stop. When the project was about 40% complete we had already paid out 85% of the contract. And when we complained about the delay we were warned that Legal Eagles could walk off the remodel and then we would see real delay. It was explained to us that Legal Eagle had other projects going and financially it did not make sense to send whole crews to knock out our remodel (as we already paid too much and flipped the job). Our project would be worked on when crews could break free from other projects. Our punch out list (after Legal Eagle claimed it was done) still remains open. Legal Eagle Contractors has abandoned the job and has not responded to letters or phone calls. We paid each draw request and now recognize that Legal Eagles was overpaid to the point that the retainer is so low that it is not profitable for Legal Eagle Contractors to finish the job and correct the errors. Legal Eagles abandoned the job. I regret on a daily basis hiring Legal Eagle Contractors. We are now getting estimates to fix what Legal Eagle Contractors was paid to do. A nightmare. Adam P. Criaco
