Beware!

Having used him once before thought we could trust him and hired him in April to do an entire fence on a lot with a pool. But similar to the below he took off with our 9k when he was suppose to buy wood/materials. We chased him for weeks and he said in text his wife took the money. He then showed up when threatened with legal action after weeks with half the materials (3k worth) and never showed up again. His responses and comments were belligerent like below and made it seem like somehow he is doing me a favour. The authorities in york region are now involved as he has done this many times clearly based on the below. If anyone would like to contact me given similar experience in regards to further legal action I can be reached at tomou25@hotmail.com. Do the right thing given the police have called you a few times and you have told them that you will do the work or drop off the materials at least and never followed through. We have been in contact with the better business bureau as well. You should be ashamed of yourself for taking money for nothing.

Beware!

My name is Manny.
Beware of this guy.

Not sure what is going on with him, but based on other reviews, starting to see a pattern.

We dealt with him in the past, and he was great.

Called him to work on the fence out front. Asked for a deposit for materials. Didn't think much of it as we were repeat customers.
Didn't show up when he said he would. Gave us "his word" he would be finished by the end of the week. Has not been replying or returning calls for over a week now.

Really disappointing Jonathon.

BEWARE!!!

DO NOT HIRE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! The company which goes by Great One Fencing or other company names will take your money and run, come up with multiple excuses for not returning on agreed to dates (ex. weather, scheduling, material, change of scope of work, emergencies) with no intention of returning. He does not answer any calls, doesn't show up when promised, commits to new dates and still does not show. He insisted on 60% deposit upon arrival for 'material', disappeared to get more, and never returned. We are owed a refund and we have reported him to Homestars, BBB & Consumer Affairs.

thanks Sarah please send me details of your job through homestars so we can see what you are talking about.
the things said sounds like my ex-wife lol
all bad reviews are by private user . so I'm Exposed but the home owners that think they deserve more after agreement and hold money hostage until we do the extra free work . this is more common than what is said about me up there .
I've never used homestars for one job and this is why .
the home owners should be exposed to the contractors as it is for home owners.
5 home owners a year that try not paying completion. all that has to be done is communicate. simple .
people react without looking at the why's

I may not remember ,but if you tell me your job send me the invoice I'll be all caught up

hope this helps

Fence Repair

I needed a new post installed in my wooden fence. Jonathan came when he said he would, did what he said would and charged exactly what he quoted. What else can you ask for. And to top it off, he is a real nice guy.

Chain link fence installed between properties

Good quality work to build a fence in side yard between properties. Johnathan showed right on time and inspected border line. He explained me how he was going to build fence. I gave him money for materials and he bought them at local Home Depot. He has all possible instruments in his truck even to cut cement blocks as opposed to others I was talking. Job was completed same day. He was also doing some extras for very reasonable price.

Fence installation

Same day fence installation during the rain. Very solid work at last minute notice. We appreciate the extra effort to get this done for us so that we can move in with our dog!

Do Not hire At any cost

Beware! He ran away with my money! Somebody needs to set this guy, Jonathan up for investigation and report him to the police. It looks from all the reviews here that he does the same thing with everyone. Please Don’t believe anything he says or writes on the invoice. He won’t stick to it. I don’t know how many more people he’ll continue to take Advance money from and run away with it, without finishing the job before he’s held accountable.
I got his number from Kijiji without reading his reviews; a mistake I’m still regretting. The positive reviews seem fishy anyway since they use same words.

He deliberately charges less than the market price and within limits of small claims court. He makes a detailed invoice to convince you that he’s the best for the job but will not stick to it. He asks for advance for “materials“ as it is consistent with all the reviews here and my own experience. Then he makes an appearance for a few hours everyday. He asks to be paid everyday for extra materials that he needs on site, going against the invoice since according to him “things don’t go according to plan in construction business” And then comes the creative excuse. From the other reviews if you see, it was an accident or he hurt his eye. In my case, I asked him to do the extra work (which I didn’t because it’s written on the invoice in his right hand writing for the price agreed)

On the last day on which he said he would finish the job (which he obviously wasn’t able to because he was never on site for some reason or another) He came and took all the “material” that I had paid for. Seeing him load all the material on his truck, I asked him what he was doing, he said the material was garbage/crooked and had to be exchanged. Little did I know I was getting fooled by him ready to run away with as much as he could take away with him. As far as I’m concerned, when you take someone’s money, you finish the job or if you can’t finish because of some excuse or another, you return the money. He ran away with all the advance as well as with all the material that was delivered which I had already paid for!

Here is a little background about my situation. He has a lot of my money. They were the last of my savings which I’ve been collecting for a few years. I got fooled into paying him so much in advance. Now I don’t have any money left to get the job done by anyone else since my husband is the only earning member of my house. I also have a six-month-old baby and don’t have a job.

My cases with the police. I will update my review with anything changes. I’m trying to save others from losing their money. You should see if you can set him up for an investigation. This has to stop Now.

home owners should be available for contractors to review and comment as well .
home owners maybe run in to 1 bad contractor in there life. i have to deal with at least 5 home owners every year that try to be sneaky .
this was a matter of no interest in my schedule nor an understanding of a contractors time frame that was priced . no patience and nothing but accusations even after all material on site same day and halfway complete. none stop delays with material payment also interruptions for extra work that was not scheduled. had to continue with my schedule with client accusing me of whatever the very next day and called the cops the next day . what does that tell you .
still never said anything about not completing but for some reason thats all the client thought no matter how much work got done .
ridiculous. also anyone notice that client is absolutely perfect in her rant .

good day

Ok anonymous, really? you're going to talk complete nonsense without giving actual facts with my name in bold letters, but you hide yours this is my life. I did 30 feet of full privacy wood 6x6x10 posts and two gates in two days. As I was about to start the neighbours, I hurt my eye on a job. I was working at night/late evening because of the pandemic and wanted to get as much extra work as I could. Anyway, I hurt my eye called the client and told them I might be out for a few days because I hurt myself. Literally the next day, he calls 34 times in a row in. Texts of ridiculousness asking where I am? when he was told of a later start dates (couple of days later). Does he not reply asking for another day, when there's only 2 days to go and the next 2 days till that start date was doing nothing, but talking nonsense and not understanding that sometimes things happen during jobs that are out of the contractors control. The world does not revolve around your job. You have to be patient and roll with the punches. Unfortunately, the accident happened, time was needed and not a lot( it was 4 days )but all four days you guys were just acting like complete jerks. people don't know how to write good reviews only bad. 8 years I have two bad ones from clients that are lost in their own world.
