Bad Guy Contractor (Brant Lake)

Tom Bolton of Bolton Drywall & Painting in Pottersville is not to be trusted. On April 14th 2019 I gave him a check as a deposit on a contract to do some drywall and painting work in my vacant rental unit. He asked for 2/3 thirds upfront for material and half the labor. He told me he would have the work done in two weeks. After two weeks he told me that there was slight delay and said he would finish in the next two weeks. After a month passed he told me one more week. Finally after waiting over two months, on June 17th 2019 he told me that he will not complete the work. He also told me that he has earned the money that I gave him, and that he was not afraid of the law because he had been down that road before. This is a rental unit and his delay already cost me 3 months lost rent. He also failed to protect rugs in two rooms and the hallway, and damaged a light fixture. He also, without asking, removed the ceiling furring strips in one room, changing the structural framing and insulation of the room. Plus ceiling in kitchen was installed level,
