Chrisnic Construction / Shoddy workmanship

1 United States Review updated:

Chrisnic just moved from Seaford to Bellmore and apparently changed their name to Kitchen Bath Distributors.

For good reasons I'm sure.

Amatuer low- brow operation, Unreliable, not timely, shoddy workmanship, Don't stand behind their work.

Use subcontractors, even though they say they don't.

The "Keystone Cops" of construction!

Horrible experience using them.

Beware!

    Interesting that this same (wording almost exact) nasty review was posted around the same time under a different name. I can't speak for Chrisnic's quality but I do know all of these contractors are cut throats who will slander each other every chance they get.

    Check references of people who have actually used the vendor. They will gladly share their experience and a reputable vendor will always supply references.

    In process of having a dormer installed...will have full review when complete. After 3 weeks into it, no complaints.

    I agree. I also had a very bad experience with Chrisnic Construction. On Day 1, they cracked my driveway severly, it's 8 months later and it is still not fixed. On day6, the tarp blew off my roof, leaving my 1st floor with severe water damage. My building inspection failed numberous times. They actually enclosed a gasoline can in my new staircase. the walls were framed crooket, tile work was crooket, windows were installed incorrectly.
    Dave the manager will let you believe things will get done, but it never does.
    The owner is a hot head, they are real quick to collect your money, but the project couldn't go any slower.
    I would actually call the office in tears daily, but nothing would get done.
    Some of the workers have no respect for your home. If the price is right, still don't use them. it will cost you more in the end.

    One year later...AWESOME job! Workers were excellent, prompt and courteous. Would definitely reccommend them...in fact, I have. Any problems that arose(all minor) they took care of right away. The above complaints had to come from competing contractors. They are professional and trustworthy. If you need proof, call them and they can show you my house!

    BEWARE ...once i signed the contract all of a sudden the week of the work we agreed on changed to two weeks later. their guys came and were very nice guys, but were all handymen, definately not licensed. i could overhear them complaining about the Chrisnic company. the project took a week as promised. it seemed like everyday i had to remind the different guys who came what the plan was. nobody really knew what was going on. i just wanted to hire somebody and not have to worry about shortcuts!!! for example, they sheetrocked over my central air vent one day and i had to remind the different guys who came the next day to cut a hole for it, i heard them complaining about it and good thing i told them about it. the electrician came and had his helper do the work while he left and went to another job. the tile work was done by the "master" tile guys helpers while he also left to go to another job. i had to correct the tile guys cause they were tiling areas very sloppy and i had to wind up grouting the spots they missed after they were done. if i wanted rookies to do the work, i could have just had anyone in the yellow pages do it. but i thought i was dealing with professionals. they definately use subcontractors, guys were showing up here in different company vans. they also provided the mouldings, when they put the mouldings up they looked like they were all scratched up and sitting in a garage somewhere. they didnt even remove the blue tape. i mean at least try to make it look nice. when the project was done they left the dumpster in my driveway for approx two weeks after the job was done after numerous calls to remove. lastly, the project looks ok. i, think it would have looked better if i subbed it out myself, but i didnt have time to do that so i guess its my fault. Like i said before everybody was very nice but i see mistakes everytime i walk into the room. i just dont have the energy to call them back to fix anything. Definately would never use them again!!!
