We Hired Torrco Construction
The purpose of this website is to share my first-hand experiences having hired Torre Mrozinski, owner of Torrco Construction. The goal is to not make any derogatory or unprofessional emotional statements (as I have many I could), but rather share the things I did wrong to open myself up to an almost unbelievable legal action.(Scroll Down for Photos)
Why Share My Story?
By sharing my story it might help you to do a better job of selecting a contractor for your project. I feel it only fair to disclose that I was sued by Torrco construction and not the other way around. A disagreement as to what Torrco Construction should be paid once he was fired from my project was the basis for the lawsuit.
The following suggestions (including pictures to support my experience) will show you how to make a much better decision when selecting a builder/general contractor. By doing so it will help you avoid major problems, or even legal action, with your building project.
Once you have read this you will be welcome to contact me personally (715-568-3420) so I can answer any questions that you may have about building a home or hiring Torrco Construction. I am willing to share all legal documents dealing with Torrco Construction to substantiate the answers I give to those questions.
Good contractors will pay subcontractors when you pay them money to do so. If they don't you might find yourself having to pay twice for the same thing. An example of this can be found by doing a simple Google search such as:
"general contractor steals money and doesn't pay subcontractors"
"general contractors that don't pay subcontractors"
"what to do if general contractor doesn't pay subs"
Good contractors book up fast. I started looking for a builder in November for a spring build and all the quality local builders were booked for the entire next season. Start the process sooner than I did, so you can hire a quality contractor.
Good contractors will help you design the house you want, not one that is easy for them to build.
Good contractors will have work ethic and want to see progress on your project as much as you do.
Good contractors will ask to be paid for what they have done, not for what they are going to do.
Good contractors do not like bad contractors.
Hire an honest and reputable builder, many are, but some are not.

1. Hire an honest and reputable builder, many are, but some are not.
2. Paperwork during the building process can be a pain but in the end it is in your best interest to do it correctly.
3. When you pay a contractor make sure to have all your paperwork in order and trust no one until the paperwork is signed.
Lastly, by allowing bankers, lawyers, and building inspectors to do their job protects us all. I just wish I had realized this sooner.
There is so, so, much more detail that I would love to share but this is not the place, legally or otherwise.
Please feel free to call me directly if you have any questions or want to learn more about my experience.
