Member says Austin remodeling company took money and ran
He asked for money upfront before any work was performed. I needed the work done quickly, so I trusted him to do the job even though I no longer lived in the house or state. My realtor informed me that he didn’t finish all the work that I had paid for and what he did complete was of low quality. Neighbors and my pool maintenance man also reported that Longhorn crew members were swimming in my pool. The owner argued with me over the phone and had all sorts of excuses for his tardiness and delay, including claiming a death in the family. I felt robbed and had to have other people take over. I’ve called him several times to ask for a refund, but he hasn’t responded. I would like a refund.

Have a complaint?
Our Angie’s List complaint resolution team attempts to mediate 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.
