New complaints against home improvement contractor in Suffolk County
Two more clients of a Long Island contractor say they were ripped off after the contractor they hired walked off the job.
Now the two homeowners filed complaints against John Crovello of Long Island Custom Builders, adding to the 30 complaints Crovello has received in the last three years.
Suffolk Consumer Affairs says Crovello is now operating on a special conditional license because he has to refund at least seven other clients for not finishing work. Meanwhile, Crovello blames weather and complex local permitting processes for the delays.Related Story: LIers urged to choose contractors wisely before home remodeling or repairs
