Cleveland-area customer wants home improvement refund

COMPLAINT: Doris Stedmire-Pitts, Cleveland Heights, Ohio

I hired Heights Home Improvement to enclose a porch in order to extend my kitchen. Todd Brakefield failed to perform the services as contracted. I called him about the delay in the work, and he stated he had to pull the permits first. Ten days later, he told me he had a heart attack.

"A week later, he stopped by my home and promised to start work in another 10 days. He failed to show, saying his condition was severe and upon his doctor's advice, he could not do any work. Therefore, I asked for a full refund. He has refused to return my calls and hasn't performed any services.

DESIRED RESOLUTION:  I would like a full refund of my $2,340 deposit, plus interest.
