TCT Construction Sdn Bhd — Abandoned Renovation Work
I have engaged Mr. Teh Kien Hock (mobile number +[protected]) of TCT Construction Sdn Bhd / CK Marketing Trading for a renovation work at my house in Taman Melawati late last year. Despite the renovation initial payment being made on 7/10/2008 the renovation work is not completed yet in end of May 2009. We have paid almost 90% of the cost of the renovation. The last straw came when we found out on Satrurday 30th May 2009 morning instead of working at my house premise, he had his Indonesian workers working at a neighbours house 2 door's away. We issued him warning that in 24hrs if he didn't want to continue with work at our premise, we will terminate his contract for breach. Instead of responding to us, he removed building material like sand, cement and even installed gutter and gutter pipe in front and rear of the house in the middle of the night of 30th May 2009 without our permission.
Imagine, the audacity despite his Indonesian workers staying at my premise using my water and electricity, he continued to ask his workers to work at the neighbours house on Sunday 31st May 2009. We have no choice to make a police report and terminate the contract. Don't be fooled by his references that his did work for Glomac showroom etc. He is unscrouplous, unethical cheat. He will create all sorts of varation orders after the contract is signed. Consumers like us need better protection against contractors as there is rule of the jungle out there. All I can advise is beware of TCT Construction Sdn Bhd and don't ever pay any progress payment with proper milestones completed.
