Bethpage plumber leaves baseboard radiator cold

Cold feelings

COMPLAINT: Jennifer Grinberg, N. Massapequa, N.J.

"I hired Perry's Plumbing & Heating Inc. when my five radiators weren't producing heat. When the plumber arrived, I asked him to take his shoes off or I'd provide plastic bags to cover them. He balked at this request, and any question I asked he put off. He said he had to change the feeder valve.

"Once he was done, the radiators worked, but the bedroom baseboard radiator stopped working. He gave me an $543 bill for less than one hour of work. The baseboard radiator never got warm, even though he said it did. The next day, I called him to come back and fix it. He said he couldn't guarantee it would work."

DESIRED RESOLUTION: "I want a refund of $200."

STATUS: Stalemate
The service provider responded to Grinberg's complaint, but was unwilling to resolve the issue to her satisfaction.
