This company and the guy that owns it, Sandro Catalic, is a ripoff. He will tell you that he can do all types of general contracting, but then botch the job. What's worse is that when you call to get him to repair or redo it, he disappears. He installed a ceramic tile floor in our home a little while back that almost immediately started shifting and moving. When we called him several times to come back, he kept ducking us. Now we have a good contractor that will remove and replace UGC's horrible work. It will cost us more money, but we checked out the new contractor and got references. Don't trust anybody that tells you how great he is at all types of contracting. In this case it was a blatent lie and we have the messed up floor to prove it!

    I found a very similar issue with an air conditioner installation. The only difference was that Sears contracted Uptown General Contracting to install a through the wall unit. They found a way to create a problem with the vinyl siding which manifested about 6 months after the installation, when the winter set in. I have contacted Sears to report this problem, they in turn contacted or attempted to reach Uptown Generalto have the problem resolved to date no success with this.
