I hired Gary Cornell on 6/23/2014. The original job consisted of repair to the entire house’s interior walls. Gary’s price seemed reasonable, in fact I increased the amount to be paid to $8000 from $7200 because I knew alot of work was involved. Work was progressing, but Gary wanted to expand the scope of repairs. Which he did, and after a long while, he started complaining and complaining. I agreed and as he had brought in extra help, I agreed to his cost increases. I almost let him go in early August, by now he was moving from wall repair to electrical repair to exterior and garage wiring. Gary never stopped asking for money for “payroll.” Revised estimates were coming in, three months have passed and the original spackling repairs are not done. During all this, there were many days when Gary or any of his crew did not show up. They would be in Montauk or Port Wash. Or Kings Park, or whereever. Gary would occasionally appear for more money. I discharged Gary Cornell when he wrote Iin a text that he was bringing his gun. Surprisingly, Suffolk Police would do nothing about this, which is utterly baffling. I also received an annonomous text stating that I had hired an unlicenced felon. We are to receive a more comprehensive report shortly, but to date we have spent over $22,000,.00, three months later there are still holes in the walls and ceilings, electrical and mechanical jobs not done, but no vague threat of a gun being involved, which is a relief. Gary works well in a crew under supervision, which is how I met him. As an independent, he is unlicenced, which is a misdemeanor, and you will be at his mercy. I do not in any way except as a crew member recommend Gary Cornell. We have such a mess on our hands, and there’s no relief in sight. Luckily I farmed out a staircase job and a garage doors (3) installation. A low initial price from Gary might not end up that way. Stay far away from Gary Cornell in all seriousness. He is not to be trusted.
