Homeowner says Tampa contractor goes AWOL on bedroom addition
I hired Alexander Inc. of Tampa Bay, based in Tampa, Florida, to make an addition in my master bedroom.
Initially, they did fine. Then the communication started going bad. They told me the work would be completed in November 2013, but there were issues with the piping and other delays.
They kept asking for more money. They then said they would be done the following February, but the work is nowhere near finished.
The construction manager who began the project no longer works for the company. Employees say the owner is the only person who can schedule work, but he is out with medical issues. Recently, I received a notice from a subcontractor who wants me to pay him.
I want the contractor to agree to a reasonable completion schedule for the bedroom addition or cancel the contract and refund any money due me. If the work they’ve completed is worth more than I’ve paid, then that should be the only amount due.

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.
