Homeowner says Chapel Hill contractor did shoddy drywall work

Member complaint

I hired Drywall and Home Repairs of T & F of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to finish drywall in two rooms.

I purchased the materials, so all they had to do was complete the work.

They finished the job, and I paid in full. Since I was going to be doing the painting, we agreed that they’d return to fix any issues, since they aren’t usually noticeable until primer is applied.

After applying the primer, I noticed that all the corners required sanding and re-mudding, the ceiling tape was bubbling, and random areas required additional sanding and mudding. It was a nightmare.

I called, and they agreed to fix it. A few days later, I hadn’t heard anything, so I called back. They promised to fix the issues again.

They scheduled times to fix the work and canceled each time. They knew I was trying to finish the job during time off from work.

Since they delayed me so much, I had no choice but to hire someone else. I called them to give them one last chance, but they failed to take it.

I asked them to reimburse me the money I had to pay another company to complete the work. They said they’d give it to me in two weeks. I contacted them after four weeks, and they didn’t answer.

I want a $200 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.
