I signed a contract and then RAN Construction/Roy Nichols breached it. Lied about work completed and materials used. Went 10+ weeks over 4 wk timeline and was still not complete. Attempted to charge an additional $3,400 for work never agreed upon which contract explicitly states must be agreed upon in writing before any deviations or alterations to original contract. He stated that all work will cease if "extra" payment not made. I immediately hired a second contractor with a witness to inspect supposed work RAN/Roy claimed to have completed and it was discovered that Roy/RAN lied about items completed and materials used. At that point $24,286.5 had been paid and less than 50% of the work completed. He left all debris/trash piled in my garage and split. Separate contractor estimated that at least $10,000-12,000 is owed back to me. Roy Nichols/RAN refuses to correspond or return communication regarding this matter. HIGHLY RECOMMEND STAYING FAR AWAY from anything involving Roy Nichols or RAN Construction. I'm active duty military and a veteran with over 15 yrs in service and it's sad people/businesses like this still exist. RAN/Roy claims to have professional crew and is a family business but that is all part of his scam. I have contacted multiple agencies regarding this shady practice in hopes that it never happens to anyone else.
