Homeowner says Shelbyville remodeler left shoddy work

Member complaint

I hired Larry Drake Construction of Shelbyville, Indiana, to install windows, siding and build an addition on my home. The remodeling work was done in a timely fashion, but there are still four windows that have no screens and the under hang on the front porch has fallen. There is now a gaping hole in which birds and other critters can enter. The drainage from the addition is not correct and drains toward the garage.

I contacted Mr. Drake multiple times, and he said he’d measure for the screens and fix the other issues. I talked to him face to face as well and he again promised to correct this. Now, he won’t return messages or calls.

I want the missing screens installed, the under hang on the porch repaired and the house drainage rerouted so it doesn’t drain toward the garage.

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.
