BBB warns about building contractor

The Better Business Bureau received numerous complaints about a Central Texas builder named Jay Curtis Slayton.

“His small building construction business is known as Sheds On Site, but the promised structures are often nowhere in sight after he receives customers’ money,” a BBB news release stated.

Slayton has done business under the names of Solid Rock Storage Sheds and Top Hand Structures. Their websites are no longer active, the release stated.

Sheds On Site is at 1228 County Road 268 in Bertram.

The Bell County Sheriff´s Department arrested Slayton on a felony theft charge on Nov. 27, 2012, and again on Jan. 29, the release stated.

Slayton went to jail on those charges, but he was released on bond. He spent three days in the Williamson County Jail in May on charges of theft of property between $1,500 and $20,000, BBB officials said.

Slayton continues operating under the name Sheds On Site, taking orders through his website and via online classified sites.

Contact the area BBB office by calling (512) 445-4748.
