Homeowner says Duluth remodeler won’t return overpayment

Member Complaint

I hired Hawksnest Construction of Duluth, Ga., for several remodeling projects around the house. They did decent work, but the work was done on their schedule and not mine.

The owner gave me believable tales of why the workers didn’t show up, like the truck was in an accident. This scenario happened so many times during the month they worked at my house. Scheduling was a major source of frustration.

However, having them not repay me for work I overpaid on was infuriating. I paid for work as each job was finished, but I ended up paying twice for one of the projects because I added a list of figures incorrectly.

I contacted the company multiple times via email, phone and text message. First, they said I was probably right and they’d look into it. Then, I stopped hearing back from them. If you do work with them, get everything in writing. I want a $431 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.
