    "The reclad job began well enough with Jason Harford on site most days.The job was well controlled and his workforce competent. About 6 weeks into the job Jason suddenly , with no advance warning or advice to us, resigned from his directorship leaving Ian Chisholm in control. Ian is a painter with no building experience. Jason evidently left the company with a large portion of the moneys we had paid the company as deposits.A short time later two of the remaining carpenters left the job leaving two inexperienced labourers and no LBP.

    Early in the new year Nick Ault was accepted as a director to Architectural Reclad Systems. Nick is a registered LBP.

    It soon became obvious that the work carried out by ARS under the new directorship was extremely poor.

    Written instructions to remedy certain defects were ignored.

    The building inspector rejected a good deal of the work, and a Stop Work was subsequently issued.

    Independent advice from 2 other experienced LBPs confirmed that much of the new work was indeed badly flawed.

    At this stage it became apparent that ARS had neither competence nor the financial ability to rectify the defects or complete the work.

    The contract was then terminated by mutual agreement.

    All work completed by Ian and his team including al new weatherboards, has since been found to be defective.

    Even the new roof has had to be removed and replaced as the carpentry to fascias, eaves, soffitts, valleys, etc has had to be replaced.

    We have faced additional costs of $100,000 to rectify all the defective work.

    Had we continued with the reclad with ARS , the house would have leaked even more than it had originally.

    We have sought legal opinion for some kind of restitution but have been advised that an action is probably not in our best interest.

    It appears our only recourse is to warn others of our distressing and costly experience with these people.

    "We are very pleased with the high quality and standard of works that Jason & Ian's crew carried out at our home. The care and courtesy they showed at all times is to be commended. We were provided a fair and accurate quote for our renovation, and kept in the loop about any required modifications or extra costs (which were minor). The communication lines with Jason, Ian and their team were always open. We were able to reach them on their mobile or email whenever necessary.
    We would not hesitate to recommend Architectural Reclad Systems.
