This fence contractor is not only not skilful in his field, he is also a liar and he took a job with the intention to CHEAT !
I engaged BUILTRITE for my home fencing job in mid December 2012. He get the fence up by the day before Christmas. I spotted many faults along the new fence during long holiday. Rang him after Jan 2013 and get him back to inspect his horrible finishing. He AGREED on the spot that the work were NOT good and he looked “sincerely” sorry for the trouble cause. Promised he will fixed up the problem and put his blamed on the supplier. We end the meeting with him confirm he will replace all the bad materials once he sort out with supplier.
Rang on early Feb 2013. Told me supplier delay replacement.
Rang on mid Feb 2013. Said materials ready, will be back next week to do the work. Never turn up as promised. Rang Rang Rang. Finally answered. He seriously sick. Hospitalised. Sorry. Back next week which is first week of March 2013.
As expected, never turn up. Rang Rang Rang. Finally he answer. Sorry. Too many new jobs, however this time he free on next week. Sure will settle my fence. Mid March passed, my fence still look horrible but BUILTRITE still not back to fix it.
From 27 March onward I began to ring the contractor. This time NO good. ADAM WILDON decided game over, no more spare time to give empty schedule to me. He will never pick up the phone from now onward. Just in case he too busy, I text him with hope he will read but of cause no respond. I also dropped him an email for solution and same treatment. SILENCE.
By this stage, I know I will never have him back to fix the fence which kind of sore to viewer eyes. I also know I can’t do much on BUILTRITE as I already did the full payment upon completion of the work.
I put up this posting with the intention to warm others from falling into same situation like mine especially if you are talking with BUILTRITE now for your home.
Almost the faults of the fence built by BUILTRITE are :
1) Cheap panel woods (thin and rough)
2) Uneven over lapping between each piece of wood
3) Huge gap along the fence due to the woods not lay properly.
4) Bottom support woods drop off easily
5) Large holes on woods
