Surface Maintenance - Bad contractor took the money and ran.

Not resolved

Surface Maintenance of Blue Springs, MO ( was hired by me to stain my deck.The owner, Richard Brown, seemed nice enough and even though they were more expensive than my other quotes, I felt confident he would do a nice job on my deck.

In what I later determined was a mad dash to get the job done so he could get paid, he decided not to wait on his helper to bring drop clothes. He not only sprayed my deck, but everything around it. I know have stain on my house, concrete patio, pave stone walk, landscape lights, bushes and grass. Although is product is suppossed to be non-toxic, I have about 5 dead bushes and several dead spots in my yard.

He also applied too much of the product, and I had to wipe down by hand most of the deck to try and remove the excess and smooth out the finish. Although I should have known better, he was anxious to get paid so he could pay his crew. I paid him before I could inspect it myself and of course he is now MIA. After 10 days, about 10 calls and a couple of email attempts I have heard nothing.

This guy does terrible work, is not truthful and likes to disappear - Do not hire him!
