Consumer says Houston remodeler took money and ran

Member complaint

I hired Steven Alar, owner of Houston Granite Discounters in Houston, to remodel the kitchen. I paid $13,000 upfront for materials and $3,000 more was due upon delivery.

I never received the materials. He never ordered the cabinets and didn’t respond to messages until I threatened criminal charges. He claimed he would make it right, but he still hasn’t returned a penny of my money or delivered any materials.

I want a $13,000 refund.

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.
