Washington, D.C., plumber resolves bathroom faucet complaint

COMPLAINT: Lenwood Brooks, Washington, D.C.

"I contacted Seidel Plumbing & Heating Co. for an estimate on numerous plumbing problems that needed to be corrected on a house that I recently purchased.

"Otto Seidel [the owner] gave me a quote of $4,500 but was willing to lower it to $4,000 if I paid cash. I paid and Mr. Seidel refused to produce a receipt, and he didn't complete the job in full.

"When I paid him, all of the plumbing work was completed except the back faucet. I told him I wanted to pay him once all of the work was completed. He pulled out the 'trust card' on me and said 'Do you not trust me? I trusted you when you said you'd pay me cash.'

"The work still hasn't been completed. So much for trusting."

Desired Resolution: "I want him to install the back knob of the faucet and provide a receipt."

STATUS: Resolved

Editor's note: The member informed Angie's List that the matter has been resolved.
