Small business owner Donnie Davis works hard on construction subcontracting jobs and counts on each dollar he earns.

"It's very financially stressful. I mean, I'm a small business, and a lot of people depend on me.  So I depend on these companies paying me," Davis explained.

In September and the first week of October, Davis said his company, Absolute Flooring and Home Repair, did three jobs for Blue Sky Services.

"The jobs went perfect. They were great. They looked good, and I even had my own money in the materials, and not to mention my guys.  I have to pay my guys to do the job," said Davis.

Davis said his deal with Blue Sky called for him to be paid 30 days after the job was done. He told me he waited the month, but nothing came.

"The first week they said they forgot to cut my check," he recalled.

Davis said he kept calling, but Blue Sky Services only paid him for one of the three invoices. He was still waiting for payment on the other two invoices that totaled $1270.  

He showed me text messages from the project manager at Blue Sky promising payment, but it didn't happen.

"No reason at all. They won't even contact me back.  The projects manager just told me to take it into my own hands," Davis recalled.

So Davis reached out to me and I got in touch with Blue Sky Services. Davis finally got paid in full.

The vice president of construction at Blue Sky Services told me he is not sure what happened, but he had no problem cutting Davis a check.
