Click on the About link in the upper left corner where someone who calls himself GH (could that be Garry Hart???) left a nice little comment. I went ahead and approved the comment to be posted to reiterate his instability. Have fun!

It’s been four ugly years and our ceiling that you see in our pictures has finally been fixed!!! The work is superb and better than anything Garry Hart EVER did for me in my house! Although I still get frustrated when I think about how he almost ruined my life, I’m able to finally look at my ceiling in my living room without cringing!!!

I still get surprised about the amount of email I receive from other people that have fallen victim to Garry Hart and his shenanigans. They however, don’t want to go down the same path that I live through constantly, which is battling false ripoff reports from Garry against my husband’s company, and threats, etc. etc….DO NOT HIRE GARRY HART, HARTCO CONSTRUCTION, HARTCO DESIGN BUILDERS, ETC! You WILL suffer as I did if you do!

Pics of my Warped Ceiling

Posted: January 31, 2012 in Uncategorized

Here are the pictures of my warped ceiling. The water has damaged quite a bit of our living room…this one is going to be fun to fix… 馃槮

We’re hoping to be able to save up the money to fix the ceiling and front bedrooms this spring. And my message is still the same…be careful who you do business with. Don’t always rely on what you can see from the Contractor’s Board because they won’t listen to us either…Please do your due diligence and get real reviews from real customers. So if anyone needs us to send a reference on the work done by Hartco Design Builders, or Hartco Construction, or Garry Hart; come take a look for yourself…pictures speak a thousand words…

Update…

Posted: January 6, 2012 in Uncategorized

It’s been a while since I’ve updated the blog…I’ve been anxious to put this whole thing behind me…but here’s the latest update on our home. Our roof has been leaking since the day we moved into the place. After the amazingly proficient and caring Nevada Contractor’s Board stated that there was nothing wrong with our roof, and because our insurance wouldn’t cover the leak, and because I was too dog-tired to fight the legal battle, we were finally able to save up enough thousands of dollars to fix the leaks. Pictures of some of the roof issues are attached. However, I’ll post in a few days our ceiling pictures in our living room…聽unfortunately聽to date, we still haven’t been able to save up the money to fix the ceiling…one battle at a time, right?

Apparently Hartco has found this blog and “someone” has been calling anonymously to make threats against us and my husband’s company. Welcome to my world!

You know, I’m not much of a complainer, although my husband might tend to disagree, but I have to say one thing that can hopefully save other people from making the biggest mistake my family鈥檚 life:

DO NOT HIRE HARTCO DESIGN BUILDERS of Las Vegas or GARRY HART of Las Vegas to build your home unless you want MAJOR problems!

Building a custom home has its ups and downs in a perfect situation. However, imagine this: not only did Hartco poorly perform our home build (we’ve had roof leaks since the first rain after we moved in, including other issues which I’ll list), but it鈥檚 been an perpetual legal battle with a frivolous lawsuit and fights with the contractor鈥檚 board (who are also absolutely worthless!).

Here is the list I had of just a few of the issues we have had with the quality of our build prior to us moving in:

聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Paint edgework and caulk in the ENTIRE house and garage = horrendous

聽聽聽聽聽聽聽聽 Roof tile pieces and garbage around house (no site cleanup)

He also聽“hired” (which his foreman backed in front of our construction control company) people off the street to build our roof (police were called many times due to public drunkeness and fighting), and refused to respond to the countless bills we received at our home from his subcontractors by mail AND by them knocking on our door!

He absolutely refused to do a final walk thru with us before we moved in. We contacted him time and time again where he refused our calls. Pretty sad when you need to be forced by the Contractor鈥檚 Board to make fixes on a house you built! Speaking of Contractor鈥檚 Board, they鈥檙e also worthless! We told the investigator about our leaks throughout our house in our ceiling areas and in the windows of the front bedrooms. His reply was to say that since he couldn鈥檛 see the leak, he couldn鈥檛 judge against him. I told him that I would be more than happy to put a sprinkler to spray water to which he stated that he would not do that. So the next time it rained, I tried to call him but he was booked and couldn鈥檛 come out. WORTHLESS!

Garry Hart was ordered to fix some of the issues and was given about three weeks to perform the work. Guess what he couldn鈥檛 finish in three weeks? You guessed it. But guess what the Contractor鈥檚 Board gave him? Yep, you guessed it, an extension! How can we be expected to take off that much work or pay someone to sit and babysit this guy?? A guy I certainly don鈥檛 want around my infant twins, my personal belongings, you get my picture?!

So he decides to file a lawsuit against us for not paying on change orders we never saw, signed or agreed to AFTER he signed a Notice of Settlement from our lawyer. Back and forth, back and forth he went with our lawyer, even going so far as to telling her he was on all kinds of mental medications etc etc and even inviting my lawyer to Disnleyland (WTF?) and then all the sudden, he stopped pursuing the litigation. So we waited, and waited to hear what his next move was. And of course, if you know anything about lawsuits, he is supposed to send our lawyer a notification on any motions in the case鈥ell apparently he moved forward without notifying our lawyer or us and he won the lawsuit because we weren鈥檛 there to represent ourselves! But as soon as we found out about that we countered with an appeal that we were never notified of our next court date or any motions and we were awarded the dismissal of the judgment and attorney fees for him lying under oath (of which he didn鈥檛 even get a slap on the wrist for!! Just a shake of the finger!). The judge was extremely unhappy and he finally hired a lawyer, then fired, then hired another, because they all told him the same thing鈥e was going to lose. So he dropped his lawsuit. Frivolity at it鈥檚 FINEST!!!!

So we鈥檙e back to square one鈥ur roof leaks, and the contractor鈥檚 board said that they would allow him to come fix it if they found it to be an installation or manufacturer issue. Which of course it is, but how can I let this scumbag in my house again after what he put us through?

My fix鈥elling the world not to hire Garry Hart , Hartco Design Builders, Hartco Construction, Hartco Electric Inc, or Garry Lynn Hart DBA, 聽Nevada State License #s: 0036126 or 0055137B or 0069255
