REBUTTAL TO COMPANY RESPONSE:

Opening comments: I find it highly unusual that he chose to say he met with me AND my pets. For the record, I have miniature dogs, primarily Chihuahuas, plus two medium-large birds. I do not ask anyone to care for my pets although my housekeeper voluntarily assists me when she is here. I explained to Mr.
that I was NOT looking for someone to come, do a project and then leave but I was looking for a handyman who could do a few things now and then do odds and ends over time that my housekeeper and I can’t do. He indicated that he understood. I showed him a number of things I wanted done eventually but stated that most were very low priority. Now, I will go over his list point by point. In some cases, his item detail has been shortened where it didn’t make a difference to context:
Item #1: Removed kitchen broken tile counter-tops from cabinets and replaced them with new handicap safe countertop. Response: He did this to my satisfaction although the only handicap issue was one corner on old counter-top. Work was for appearance, not handicap accessibility. Item #2: Built and installed new lower open storage cabinets in dining area and provided eight (8) denim lined wicker baskets Response: Cabinet was built to extend kitchen. Wicker baskets were provided however receipts for them were not included. Only issue with this was that cabinet blocked a duplex outlet. I requested that he bring electric cords for 2 power strips through a hole and onto the top where they would be fastened permanently. This cabinet was to hold a number of small appliances side by side which are rarely in operation at the same time. This would prevent a tangle of cords. When he did not follow these instructions, he brought the cords for the power strips through a hole and then left them hanging at the front of the cabinet. He did not fasten them at least out of sight and now I have an unsightly spiderweb of cords going down the front of my cabinet to loose power strips.
Item #3: Assisted appliance delivery personnel with installation of new customer supplied disposal, faucet, dishwasher,
and refrigerator in kitchen. Supplied hookup parts as needed. Cleaned up area in garage and moved existing refrigerator there. Response: Mr.
did install disposal and faucet in kitchen. Metro Appliance delivered and installed
, dishwasher and refrigerator and supplied necessary hookup parts. Mr.
was asked to clean up the area in the garage so that existing refrigerator could be moved there but the actual moving was in my contract with Metro Appliance. Mr.
provided me with a receipt from Ace Hardware for “dishwasher hookup parts” and labeled with my name. However, the cash
date on the receipt was a full month AFTER appliances were installed. Appliances were installed prior to Thanksgiving but date on receipt is 12/19/2012. Had he decided on his own to assist the Metro delivery crew, that was his business. Since I had paid Metro for the service, it would be double billing to also pay Mr.
.
Item #4: Supplied and installed vertical blinds in kitchen Response: Done satisfactorily
Item #5: Extensive cleaning of existing cabinets. Removed shelf paper that was covered and stained with rodent, bird & dog feces/urine, along with cockroaches. Response: Mr.
insisted he was going to rip out the existing shelf covering, install new shelf covering and then put a rubber netting on top of that. I told him NOT to do that. The existing finish was cleanable and well-glued. My housekeeper was waiting until the construction mess was completed before cleaning the shelves and then putting everything back. His statements about the condition of the shelves were untrue and apparently included to be incendiary. Pest control company eliminated short-term mouse problem and was/is coming every two weeks for cockroach issue. Birds and dogs do not have access to inside of cabinets. Since Mr.
ignored my request to leave shelf paper alone, he ripped it out leaving a sticky mess that will need to be sanded smooth.
ITEM #6: Sanded, prepped, and painted all cabinet areas, including laundry room. Response: No area was sanded or prepped. Although receipts show I was charged for 4 rolls of painters tape and 2 rolls of masking tape, only a couple of areas were taped so paint is on walls throughout.
Item #7: Measured, ordered, supplied, painted and installed new cabinet doors, with new hinges. Customer did not want knobs as they interfere with her wheelchair. Customer also personally approved the paint chips that were presented prior to purchasing the paint. She remarked the blue she chose matched her favorite cup and seemed well pleased. Response: I told Mr.
to leave off the knobs because he had gone so far over budget that I was not going to pay for anything else. The paint chip Mr.
supplied with the receipts he finally provided did match the cabinets but this was the first time I had seen a paint chip. It does NOT match my “favorite cup” and I immediately told Mr.
that I did not like the paint as soon as a small space was painted. Further, I had requested semi-gloss paint for the cabinets. He used satin paint which is harder to clean.
Item #8: Customer sprinkled cockroach killing dust on all cabinets and counter tops on the day after they were all painted. Painter had to clean the entire again. Customer sprinkled the dust again the next day. We did not clean it up that time. Response: The “dust” (food grade non-toxic diatomaceous earth) was not on any painted area. Mr.
notes that it was sprinkled the day AFTER painting so there should have been no need for painter to clean it.
Item #9: Measured, ordered, supplied, painted and installed new drawer fronts, including repair of all existing drawers. Response: Satisfactory except for the use of satin instead of semi-gloss paint and they were not sanded.
Item #10: Painted two doors including jamb and trim in laundry room and garage. Response: There is only one door in this area. The door leads from the laundry room to the garage. They painted both sides but it’s not two doors.
Item #11: Supplied material, built and installed ramp from laundry room to garage. Response: Satisfactory
Item #12: Supplied and installed new hot water heater to city code….Existing hot water tank was 31 years old and out of code. Response: Satisfactory
Item #13: Disposed of existing hot water tank, junk in back yard and garage, and miscellaneous debris in three separate dump loads. Response: The old cabinet doors were in the garage. He took those plus the water tank without mentioning it to me. I had donated them and people were scheduled to come get them. He knew I had done the same thing with the old
and dishwasher. I belong to a group dedicated to keeping things out of the landfill. I
’t know what junk he may have taken from the yard or if he took something else from the garage. I had to call the people back who were coming to get the water tank and cabinet doors.
Item #14: Repaired, caulked, re-secured and painted front siding on exterior of house between two window frames. Response: Satisfactory
Item #15: Removed 5’ section of wall between master bedroom closet and bathroom to allow easier wheelchair access. Supplied and installed trim as needed. Response: Section of wall was 3’ not 5’ as it should have been. Mr.
told me that he was going to extend bathroom counter into the closet area because wall was being removed. This was to give me a vanity next to sink cabinet. Instead, I now have an expensive
shelf in dark area of closet that not only blocks ability to hang clothes in that space but can’t be used as a vanity. None of the trim was finished. New wood trim has not been painted. Raw sheetrock at end of wall is pieced with gaps that will have to have extensive sheetrock work to look decent. Floor has a 6” wide area of bare concrete where wall had been.
Item #16: Measured, ordered, supplied and installed two new counter-tops in closet and bathroom areas. Supplied and installed one new faucet, sink, including two shut off valves, along with one new toilet. Response: See above about “counter top in closet”. Charged $344 for the bathroom counter tops which includes
shelf inside closet. There was NO new toilet installed. Sink, faucet, etc were satisfactory.
Item #17: Repaired existing couch by raising it for easier handicap accessibility, as requested. Response: Mr.
had replaced a duplex electrical outlet behind couch. Couch had to be moved. I told Mr.
to be sure and put it back on blocks when done. There was one block on each corner of frame that allowed access from wheelchair. He properly replaced it on blocks on one end but the blocks on the other end were under springs, not frame. This meant that the sofa was lower on one side and sinking as springs were compressed. I called and asked him to stop by when he was in the area and put the blocks under the frame before couch warped. He told me he was going to build a permanent frame under couch. I told him no, that it just needed to be back on blocks as it was before he moved it. I called him a day or two later and told him it would not be necessary to come by because my son had put the couch back on blocks correctly. Again, he insisted he was going to build a frame under couch. He came by to adjust drain on new bathroom sink since it would not drain. I came out of kitchen to find that he had my couch upside down and was screwing two 6’ pieces of 2x4’s on the bottom of the sofa and attached to existing blocks. This took a maximum of 30 minutes and two boards. At $25/hour plus materials, he charged me $50 for a job that he was told NOT to do and was his fault to start with.
