Milwaukee driveway crumbling to pieces

Milwaukee driveway crumbling to pieces

Driveway disaster

COMPLAINT: Lori Rogahn, Waukesha, Wis.

"I hired Tony Lalicata & Son Cement Contractor to install a walkway and driveway for my home. The initial setup and layout was excellent. However, within a year of installation the driveway started showing signs of deterioration. This eventually left large holes in the driveway, some deep enough to expose the gravel underneath, and many unsightly defects. The deterioration continues to spread throughout the driveway and I haven't been able to reach a resolution with the contractor."

DESIRED RESOLUTION: "Since the surface of the driveway isn't repairable, replacement is the only option. I'm asking for the replacement cost, $12,910, as well as the cost of any additional labor and materials to fix landscaping that may be disturbed. I don't want Lalicata & Son doing the replacement work."

STATUS: Penalty Box

Snow job

COMPLAINT: Vinit Carpenter, Brookfield, Wis.

"I contacted JPA Landscaping for some snow removal and landscaping. They called back and said they were running a special on yard fertilization and snow removal, so I paid ahead of time for both and received an invoice. They never showed up for any snow removal and I had to hire another company to do the job. I've called and e-mailed and have received no communication."

DESIRED RESOLUTION: "I expect a full $229 refund as quickly as possible."

STATUS: Penalty Box
