No matter what country it is or what business practice it is, there is a professional protocol that says- If you have taken money for a work then you have to complete it no matter what circumstances are. People doing such things seriously need to get their moral values right because while entertaining your inner demons, you end up hurting people who are conducting business with honesty and integrity. This is what happened with Andrews Jewelers in Williamsville NY. They are a renowned name in the region and they conduct their business fair practice with complete efficiency and transparency.
In the recent course of events, a company called Dipaolo and Sons has cheated them. Andrews Jewelers hired this company for building a retail location and even paid them 85% of decided service fee. Frank Primerano, the owner of Dipaolo and Sons walked off the job without even completing it. He didn’t even bother to give a notice or something. This is a really unethical thing to do; if you have taken money for something then do the work or pay it off.
This is not the only mess this guy has created. Subcontractors are calling at Andrews Jewelers for their due payments as they were hired by Andrews Jewelers’ name. Andrews Jewelers have not just paid a fat amount to Frank Prime but they also have to face the frustrated subcontractors who were unpaid by the Dipaolo and Sons. Because of the foul practice of a single entity, a lot of other people are suffering to a high extent. Subcontractors are unpaid, Andrews Jewelers have paid their share and the work is still hanging in between just because Dipaolo and Sons are stepping back.
Claims by Andrews Jewelers are not baseless at all as the complete contract was documented through the AIA bank draw documents. These documents were signed by both the parties Andrews Jewelers and Frank Primerano. This is not it. Not just they left the work incomplete but the half done work isn’t apposite either. There have been craftsmanship issues with the work that has been half done. Improperly installed water lines, wrongly installed and crooked parking light, floor slab is awful and there are leaks in the foundation which is causing water leaks these are some of the problems that are there at the site.
All these things have made situation really hard for Andrews Jewelers as they have incomplete work and lost payments. Frank Primerano is not the person to do business with and it is recommended to not choose Dipaolo and Sons in future for any kind of work.
