Jonathan Builders, Inc — Never trust slick brochures
I hired Jonathan Builders and regret the day I ever heard their name. They apparently already had numerous complaints against them with the State Contractors License Board when I hired them. I knew nothing about this. Yet their sales presentation was slick and professional. They even provided written references of "satisfied" customers including a recommendation from the League of California Homeowners. I am out over $5, 000.00 and will not be able to collect, although I filed a complaint against them. They performed shoddy work, lost thousands of dollars of granite and marble, which I paid for separately, and when some of the granite they had faced one of my fireplaces with fell off, they refused to repair it. They have had their license revoked by the State of California, and the owner, Eyal Ezra is in hiding.
I understand that 15 separate complaints were filed against them with the State of California and many of them were satisfied by Jonathan Builder's bond which now is depleted.
I consider myself fortunate however, because one of the homeowners who filed against Jonathan Builders was damaged in the sum of $52, 000.00.
I probably will be too afraid in the future to hire anyone to work on my house after this experience.
