Homeowner says fencing contractor took payment, but didn’t do work

Member complaint

I hired Best Landscape Fence and Patios of San Antonio to install a new fence and with two gates. Steve Wahl was misleading while at my home and gave me a quote of $800, which was $100 to $300 less than other quotes I received.

He said he would need $400 for a down payment and requested that I pay by check under his business partner’s personal name, which I was very uncomfortable doing.

I convinced Wahl to let me add the company’s name to the check.

They didn’t install the fence, and they were supposed to refund the $400, but I haven’t seen the money.

I want a $400 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.
