Willowbrook client faults home improvement contractor
COMPLAINT: Allison Gabel, Willowbrook, Ill.
I hired James Armstrong of Aggressive Home Improvements to purchase and install cabinets, wood flooring, granite countertops, new shower tile and a new shower door. He was also going to install appliances I purchased and paint the condominium. I gave him money up front and he did the demolition. After a week, he needed additional money to purchase materials, and I gave him the money he asked for.
He said it would only take four days to do the job — he didn't tell me it would be only one day each month! After four weeks, I requested my money back. I gave him $7,200 to do the work, but he only did the demolition, which required minimal time and no purchased materials. I ended up hiring another company to repair the damage he caused.
DESIRED RESOLUTION: I want them to pay me back $5,200.
