We contracted ADE Construction in March 2014 for a full remodelling job on our condo unit in Miami. We were visited by a person by the name of Greg from German decent, who went over the plans and drew up an offer. We foolishly agreed to a reasonable budget, and paid them in full (over $20,000.00), which included custom bathroom furniture built. We were later visited by a lady who went over the design plans and samples, and later on by Anthony DiSimone (license nr CGC 022694) for all the necessary permits. They disappeared for a few months, blaming permit delays, until they finally commenced work in May 2014. They performed the demolishing work, and after a few further delays we were also visited by the “project manager” Tony Petrucelli, in order to get the project going in the right track again. By that point (early June 2014) we still had confidence as they kept answering our calls, but were very inefficient in performing the work. They changed conditions on the original contract, such as not supplying certain materials for the floor insulation, and asking for parking money for the area. The project kept getting assigned different workers, who showed up sporadically at the apartment, did piecewise jobs, broke furniture, installed some tiles incorrectly, and even stole property from the apartment. By July 2014 the situation became a nightmare, ADE would not respond, and the work seemed far away from being completed. Keep in mind that we had to find alternative accomodation for the 4-5 months our apartment was uninhabitable, and we were becoming desperate. We were forced to hire a lawyer at great expense, and they briefly responded to the firm, by showing up for a brief few sessions of additional tiling work. Since September they have completley disappeared on us, do not return our calls, and do not reply to our lawyers communications. We estimated they left the job at 20% completion, some done poorly. We had to hire a second contractor to fix their mess and finish the job, as we had no other alternative. Our lawyers claim they filed reports against Anthony DiSimone, but we have not heard anything else since. We are quite desperate in that we’ve lost all our money, and our remodelling work not only ended up costing more than twice our original plans, but ADE workers stole from the property as well. We are not sure if there’s any hope in getting our money back, but we’re trying to the best of our abilities in tracking down Anthony DiSimone and accomplices for the blatant contract breach and theft. We do not want any kind of business with Anthony DiSimone nor any of his people, and would only like to recover as much of the money they stole from us as possible. We would be very grateful if you could share your experiences in tracking this people down and any help you can provide us as to our way forward. We are looking into all sorts of legal councel, but your experience in these matters is welcomed. .
