Bourbon tuckpointing company resolves complaint about falling mortar

Member complaint

I hired All-Brick Tuckpointing in Bourbon, Missouri, to do some spot tuckpointing on my home.

Owner Michael Johnson asked for payment after he completed the work. I went over the work first and spotted several imperfections in the mortar. He fixed them on the spot, so I paid in full.

Before he left, he told me that I would have to wait a few days for the mortar to cure. A few days later, I noticed the mortar was darker in spots, and the workmanship was very poor. I contacted Michael, and he told me that he would come out in a few days. A few days turned into a week, so I called him again.

He supposedly fixed everything, but now the mortar is falling off. I called him back, and he cursed at me and said he wasn’t going to fix it again.

I want an apology and my money back so I can have the work completed by another contractor.

Have a complaint?

Our Angie’s List complaint resolution team attempts to resolve disputes between members and service providers. During this process, three outcomes can happen: Penalty Box, Resolved or Stalemate. Companies that don’t respond to a member’s complaint will be placed in the Penalty Box until they respond. A case becomes Resolved if a company addresses the complaint to the member’s satisfaction, or it becomes a Stalemate if the provider responds, but the company and the member can’t reach an agreement.
