Homeowner says Venus contractor takes money, doesn’t finish work

Member complaint

I hired Aubrey’s Custom Doors, Trim and Mantel in Venus, Texas, to hang two interior doors, build some shelving units and seal a doorway with drywall on both sides, then finish and paint it.

After Aubrey Walker changed the start date once, he showed up and finished the drywall and doors in one day. He was supposed to return after his painter finished the walls a few days later. The painter didn’t show up two times, and when he did, his work was atrocious.

As soon as the painter finished, Aubrey came to get a check. He assured me he would return to finish the other tasks, so I paid him in full. But he never came back, not even to clean up the trash he left. He made promises, but always broke them.

I want him to finish the work and provide a $480 refund, or not finish and offer a $550 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.
