He said he would get back to me with an estimate. It is now Aug 11 2014 and after 5 phone calls to this company I still don't have an estimate. They kept telling me they would get an estimate to me but they never did. Two months is too long to wait for any estimate.
an hour after that he called again to cancel the appointment, and didnt
even give another meeting time/date. Complete lack of interest on the
-Lack of professionalism or customer courtesy
-Incorrect equipment (indoor hardware used on exterior fence
-Refused to 'make it right'
-Charged me for every callback and correction on initial
quality issues and structural problems
My husband initially contacted this business for work on our
garage. Shortly thereafter, he passed away, unexpectedly. The work still needed
to be done so I worked with the same business my husband had contacted
originally. I needed repair to my existing garage and significant yard
improvements (foundation and fence). He did not provide a quote initially and
began working based on my verbal budget limit of $x. (by the time the job was
complete he charged me more than double that original limit I gave him). I
believed he was doing the right thing for me so blindly that i bought the
refreshments and lunches for him and his crew for the entire month he worked
here. I paid for his parking ticket at my site. He used some of my husbands
tools. He used the equipment i paid for renting for his own personal use as
well as on the job use. He would not provide receipts to me even though I asked
for them. The quality of the workmanship was substandard from the beginning.
Everything I noticed, I questioned, he justified or gave me a run around as to
whose fault it was. Once the work was complete, I had several significant
problems including leaning fences, garage door failures (multiple times-still
an issue), fence structural integrity, retaining wall alignment, gate hardware,
cracked sidewalk. I have had to pay additional people to fix many of these
problems and some still are not fixed. This contractor will not return my calls
now. He definitely took advantage of my vulnerability in a delicate situation.
He knew my husband personally, and knew that I was not familiar with the
business side of home improvement needs.
I wish I could undo this work. VERY UNHAPPY!
I would like one of two things:
1)Fix the issues that remain and reimburse me for the things
I have had to pay others to fix, or
2) Reimburse me the difference between what I gave as a
budget and what I was charged in full of the services as I didn't get what I
He was up front with associated costs and ways to save (including postponing the project until fall). He listened to all of our ideas and really paid attention.
After our initial meeting, he returned an estimate via email. Again, considering this brutal winter an how busy contractors are, it was very timely. After changing the size and other discussions, we decided that this season wasn't the time to do this job.
We will be saving up more money to do this job and
