Member says West Jordan chimney company kept cash
I hired Utah Premier Chimney Cleaning of West Jordan, Utah, to repair my chimney. I had them clean my chimney and they did the work satisfactorily.
I was told my chimney needed repair and it would cost $385. They wanted half of the money upfront and the other half upon completion. I wrote them a check for the cleaning and $192.50.

The day before they were scheduled to do the repair, I was told their service truck was in the shop and they couldn’t make it. I couldn’t take more time off work and I didn’t want the work done in the winter because concrete doesn’t do well in the cold.
They agreed to refund my $192.50 and would be back to do the job as soon as spring hit. However, after two weeks of asking for my refund, I got no response. I want a refund of $192.50.

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.
