BUCKHORN RESIDENTS BEWARE!

BUCKHORN RESIDENTS BEWARE!

RENOVATION MAN APPROACHING RESIDENTS SEEKING TO DO WORK


In January a resident on Starmount Drive was approached by a

man offering to buy the owner’s pick-up truck which was not

offered for sale. The buyer eventually offered to pay

approximately $1,000 more than the book value for the truck.

While they were completing the sale of the truck the buyer

stated he was a quality home renovation man and steered the

conversation toward redoing the homeowner’s kitchen for a good

price. He also stated his quality crew had years of experience in

the renovation field. The gentleman had a very easy going and

convincing manner and quickly warmed to the Buckhorn residents

allaying their concerns. They had been talking about redoing

their 35 year old kitchen for a couple of years and the offer and

timing seemed perfect.


The man convinced the couple to allow him to present a proposal

that would be very attractive and meet the needs and wants the

couple had envisioned for their revitalized kitchen. The

proposal was thoroughly discussed and minor changes

were made. The couple gave the man a portion of the

total price, which was nearly $24,000. A few days later

the man showed up and finalized his measurements and

began the project.


A long story short … the various workers he brought to

the job had only newly been hired by the man and had

minimal construction experience. The man himself only

accepted cash, it was later learned that he had no bank

account, and he often drove to Lowes to by tools, which

he did not have, and materials to work on the kitchen.

Two months of fits and starts and the project neared

completion. The homeowner’s home was covered in a

fine dust from all the work. As a matter of fact, the

homeowner frequently used his knowledge of

woodworking, electricity and plumbing to coach and

assist the various workers in the task of the day in order

to have an acceptable outcome.


WHY ARE WE SHARING THIS STORY WITH YOU?

The man says he has spoken to other residents in

Buckhorn and has lined up more jobs. He plans to bring

them to the homeowner’s home to show off the

completed kitchen. The homeowner does not want

anyone else to go through the stress his family has

endured. The average homeowner does not have the

knowledge or skill to manage the work through to the

end to keep it from being a total catastrophe.


The man is known as Perry Zitko, owner of A&P All

Improvement from Davenport, Florida. Please be aware

and use this information and protect yourself from this or

any other renovation offers inside or outside your home!


Respectfully, Buckhorn HOA and Neighborhood Watch
