Do not hire this guy! He is not truthful, and will go after your money!
I am remodeling my house and hired this guy to do some interior demolition, put trash in my dumpster, and remove roughly 4,000 bricks from the walls. My house is 50 years old in a neighborhood where an expensive type of brick - Cedar Bayou - was very commonly used and is selling for $2 a piece. Before hiring the guy, I interviewed him, who boasted how good and how cheap he could do the job, and how well he knows the neighborhood. He said he “collects” old bricks and might give me a good price if I allowed him to see the bricks. What a wonderful sales pitch, I gave him my address and asked him on the spot if my brick is Cedar Bayou. He said no it's a mixture of old Chicago and something else. I gave him the job only to know from my bricklayer that the brick is indeed Cedar Bayou. Even so I intended to honor the agreed price. However, not only did he not complete the job, he invoiced me more than what we agreed on. When I called him, he denied ever agreeing to part of the demo, and claimed that he told me my brick is Cedar Bayou. That was it, I am not going to deal with a guy like that anymore.
Lessons learned, and I hope you do, too. Stay away from this guy! He operates under the names Demolition Fast, Envirolink, Inc., Trash Hauling Fast, Merchant Materials 7 Days, etc., so beware!
