DO NOT HIRE STAN WILLIAMS--BEWARE
He operates under false pretenses.
All that can be said is he will take your money and never deliver anything but constant procrastination and lies. He is very attentive when you request a quote until he gets your money. Then poof.
He becomes aloof and hard to reach. Does not get permits prior to starting work, has constant excuses of rain delay, workers unavailable not sure why they did not show up, material delays etc. etc. BUT if you double check his stories call the permit office and lumber yard and check his background you will know the truth. He will look you in the eye and lie without blinking. A contract was signed in Feb 2017 and had to fire him end of June 2017. No permits, no inspector reports, no outdoor patio, just stolen money and a lot of frustration.

He has a good reputation. Wow.

Run a background check on him as well, it might actually get worse. :(

Sorry that happened but it's truly a buyer beware world.

There's a haiku in there. Poof..aloof....it's in there

You can contact TDLR in the AG's office.
Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations.

Did you read what the OP wrote? It seems he did that.

If you paid him and he didn't do the work, depending on the amount you lost, sue him in small claims court. (You don't need a lawyer in this court.) If it was more than that, sue him in regular court. Back up everything you say with photos and all the paperwork you have. You can sue for your money and court cost and if you win he has to pay you.

Just be really careful the Judge and the opposing lawyer are not good buddies...

It's sad how many bad contractors are out there. I always tell all of my clients to never pay a contractor up front for anything. If it is a reputable contractor, they will not need money before the project begins.

Small claims court is a waste of time. You can't enforce a settlement.

That's why tdlr is a better option. Especially if the company has a general contractor'stand license.

Not so. Many companies ask and need a down payment. Some customers have a habit of not paying. 1/3 down, 1/3 in the middle, and remainder at the end is very common on large jobs.

"tdlr"

What is that?

His reputation is not that good anymore. He has done a ton of work for me and we had LOTS of problems. Never give money upfront. Write your own contract rules and incorporate it with his. Don't pay final bill until you know what the expenses versus what you have paid are or you will be paying more I assure you.
