Consumer says Chesapeake contractor never started driveway work

Member complaint

I hired Timberlynn Construction of Chesapeake, Virginia, to convert my workshop into a garage, expand and refinish the driveway.

Owned Tim Phelps signed a contract and cashed the deposit, which was one half of the total amount of $19,530. Phelps didn’t arrive the next day as planned.

I called at least once, sometimes twice, every day for several days and sent texts. He has yet to respond. He took $9,765, hasn’t done any work and won’t communicate with me despite numerous efforts on my part.

I want a full refund and to be released from the contract.

Penalty Box

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. Find out more about the Complaint Resolution Process.
