    business info lookup..

    just curious if anyone is better at this than i am.. trying to find customer reviews on 'Mark McCormick Commercial and Residential Construction' of toms river nj.

    he claims that if he starts in april, it'll take till june to get insulation, walls, tile and paint all done in our shore house. three months to me seems a little long.

    The only reason we are involved with these people is because our neighbor with questionable morals works for him. The last time, my father was going to help him out by hiring this guy. Before he started, he demanded an extra $1,000's or he wouldn't start at all... and going down to check on him, apparently he and our neighbor spent most of the day drinking when they should have been working.

    My thought is their new scam is to drag the job out as long as possible to get as much money as possible. to sum it up, i just don't trust them ;o)

    curious if anyone can find any info on him. thanks

    The only google info I could find was a single page verifying he holds a construction license.

    My advice, if you think in any way this person isn't to be trusted, then hire someone else. Don't toss that kind of money away on a gamble.

    If you are already having doubts then listen to your intuition...and find someone else.
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    Agreed.

    Demanding extra money before the job has even started is a big flashing danger sign.

    not my decision...or my house. my mother decided it, and the only back bone she tends to get is when she gets stubborn. the old 'this guy is right there' excuse....ugh,,,someone shoot me.

    i tried to steer her away with other businesses of locals...but the old 'i don't have time to go down and meet people' excuse also popped up

    Also, look at the BBB rating.
