Uneven, rough concrete patio angers Charlotte owner

Uneven, rough concrete patio angers Charlotte owner

COMPLAINT: Janet Rhoton, Charlotte, N.C.

"I hired Island Boyz Masonry to pour a 24-foot-by-28-foot raised concrete patio with cultured stone stacked on the exterior. It started out great. Don Sasa, [the installer] and his crew were professional and on time, but as the project started, there was some rain that delayed the work.

"Once the patio started being poured, we discussed the level and the intent of the pour. I needed a slight slope away from the house and I asked that there not be any low spots.

"We have 20 to 30 low spots, and the slope runs toward the house, causing severe pooling against the house and runoff into our crawl space. There are footprints all over the concrete – it's like they didn't care about the finish since there was so much junk in it like sticks, leaves and even trash.

"Don won't return any phone calls and is avoiding the architect who secured him to do the job. We should have only gone with an Angie's List contractor, but we trusted the architect, who had used him before."

DESIRED RESOLUTION: "I want them to refund the cost of the repair."
