Reviews in San Antonio to Install Kitchen Island

FGRANITE TRANSFORMATION
14 Sep - 3 Oct, 2102 *** BUYERS BEWARE *** A long read, but if you plan to do business with Granite Transformations (GT) of San Antonio, TX, please read. Some of it doesn't flow as well I had hoped, but you will get the gist, which is BUYERS BEWARE. We've had just an awful and unfortunate experience with Mel and Jeanette Esperza - husband and wife team - of Granite Transformations in San Antonio, TX. We feel Mel has been deceitful in our transactions; I have emails that substantiate most of my claims. I've also had family members present during both home visits, one visit was with me and my 18 year old son, and the most recent was with my wife and 16 year old daughter - his demeanor, behavior and escalated voice during that visit lead to both my wife and daughter fearing the worst - he was eventually asked to leave our home. It began a couple of weeks ago when we contacted him to overlay our kitchen island. During our email transactions I stated to him we're interested in purchasing a new delta faucet, to which he replied "I found a delta pull down for 300.00 with my discount". We were sent a price estimate, which included the Delta faucet, and agreed to purchase. A few days later we met at my home for measurements. During the meeting Mel stated he would install the new Delta faucet and "round" the granite edges for free; for safety reasons, all of our granite has rounded corners. In front of my son - who I introduced to Mel and was present for the entire transaction - he said "I will take care of that for you for free". My son and I both were amazed at the level of CS and extremely thankful. I signed the contract. I now feel that was deceitful business practice. Later that day I spoke of his kind gesture to several of my colleagues. Then later that evening I researched the faucet model number he had annotated on the contract - the faucet was NOT the Delta upon which we agreed. The faucet listed on the contract was a 200.00 Price Pfister - not the 300.00 Delta. I contacted Mel through email and brought this to his attention - I asked for clarification and added that we discussed Delta in several emails (to include a pricing email from Jeantte which reflects Delta faucet for 300 + 25 tax). He responded with just the following comment: "If you found a Price Pfister GT534-CMS for $200.00, go ahead and order it and we will install it". He did not apologize for having me sign a contract that I believed included a Delta faucet, nor did he apologize for having me sign a contract that should have been be at least 100.00 cheaper, nor did he create a new contract. I responded and told him it was a surprise to find a different faucet on the contract, yet no mention from him, and no price adjustment. I also asked if we bought a faucet ourselves, should we now expect to pay 325.00 less - he replied and said yes, we can pay 325.00 less. Had I not researched the faucet model, would I have paid for the delta? I 100% believe we would have. Island countertop was installed on 26 Sep. Installer arrived at 0900, but advised us that the overlay would not fit (yet Mel states later that he inspects all pieces before they leave the warehouse). Installers state they would be back in 'a couple of hours', which turns in to 4.5. No problem, they stayed late and finished the job. We told them they did a good job and we liked it - reality was they did an OK job and we DIDN'T like it (burned thru the "granite" in several places, legs were just glued on and not dried when they left - I touched the leg and it slid out from under the island)--the sides make it all look like cheap laminate. We don't feel comfortable addressing negative concerns with installers...we prefer to speak to the managers or owners. The installers stated to us that they couldn't get a hold of anyone, and that we should expect to hear from Mel the next day. The edges are not rounded as Mel told me and my son that he would do. But Mel now claims that he stated to me that he would SOFTEN the edges. Mel denies telling me and my son that he would round the edges. Had he told me he would SOFTEN them I would have inquired on what SOFTEN means. Regardless, they are not rounded or soft - they are as if they are sawed through each corner's 90 angle overlay, creating a flat edge with two corners - nothing is soft or rounded. It turns out, after speaking to the boss - who also happens to be his wife - that they don't soften corners, they BULLDOG them (I think it is basically how they are now) and that the overlay granite is IMPOSSIBLE to round or soften - yet Mel told us he would round them. Had Mel been honest and told me upfront that they cannot be rounded, I would not have signed contract - we feel this was deceitful practice and a violation of the Consumer Bill of Rights - particularly "The Right to be Informed" AND was done so in an attempt make a sale. Mel told us he would install the faucet, plus the installers UN-installed the existing faucet - we thought they would install the faucet but they informed us that they don't install faucets. After the overlay installation we did not pay the remaining balance as we were still waiting on the faucet install. Mel contacted me on 27 Sep and stated "Plumbing was not included or ever discussed". I then responded and quoted his email where he states he would install the faucet. My wife called Mel on 28 Sep to discuss all of these concerns and he told her that when he said he would install the faucet that he meant he would cut a hole in the granite for it. Again, we view this as deceitful practice and violating "The Right to be Informed". How many customers would think installing a faucet equates to drilling a hole for one? Drilling a hole and installing a faucet are certainly not one in the same to me or ANY of the 15 or so people with whom I've shared this story. Mel offered to reduce the price by 100.00 to cover the cost of the faucet install and agreed to meet her at our home to further discuss. On 1 Oct Mel visited my wife and daughter at our home; she wanted to discuss some of our concerns. Mel became what appeared to be very angry...boisterous...raising his voice...and at one point started to approach my wife in a manner that scared her and my daughter. My wife had to ask him to step back, and eventually had to ask him to leave. I spoke to Mel's "boss" regarding most of this, only to find cold, empty, and argumentative responses. She "apologized" when I told her that Mel scared my wife and daughter, but it lacked any and all sincerity and she sounded like I was annoying her. She told me she would review all of the emails and call me that evening. She didn't call until the next day when she threatened to place a lien on our home should we not pay the balance of 697.00. I emailed her back and offered to split the final costs. I offered, but we are victims of deceitful and unruly business practice - I don't feel we owe them anything at all, let alone 697.00. I feel they owe us a complete refund as we feel we've been deceived and tricked into buying something for which we did not agree. Today (3 Oct), Mel emailed back and said not only are they now NOT going to discount the 100.00 we paid to have the faucet installed, that we now owe them the FULL 797.00 and that they "will go forward with our procedures to collect this debt". We are actually going to pay the 797.00 (even though they've now added a renege to all of this) for reasons we think best not to share at the moment BUT we are contacting multiple organizations that protect people in our situation. I have emails and witnesses Hopefully with the number of agencies we're contacting that someone SOMEWHERE can help us. We're also filing an incident report with a local department - Mel's behavior in our home must be documented. Bottom line - buyers beware. Yes, I should have performed more research before hiring them - GT blasted all over the internet - many of their locations are blasted. You can see by the negative reviews here that the owners are condescending and will not take responsibility for their actions.  They keep saying "you signed the contract. "we have a contract - you owe us".   They did not fulfill their end of the contract but yet expect us to pay. We will do our part to ensure consumers, agencies, departments, and organizations are made aware of our experience with GT during the past few weeks.  One last item, Mel stated to my wife that if we wrote any negative reviews online, he would get 30 people to state they love his work.

AACB Services Home Improvement
I can't say enough good things about Alan and Sara at ACB Services. First of all, Alan and his crew can do anything and they do it all really well. Their drywall work was the best I've ever seen and he seems to know exactly what he's talking about on electrical. Sara is the best coordinator and they are both very good at communicating so you are not left in the dark on what they are doing or when it is going to be done. I would trust them to do any project in my house.

AHeights Custom Renovations
First of all I asked all of my friends for a reference of a kitchen remodel company and no one felt their experience was worthy of referring their contractors. I hired Sergio and his team and would gladly refer them! My kitchen was 20 years old and needed updating. From the demo to the final touches everything went better than expected. My remodel took place over Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays with minimal delays. The crew did an excellent job in installing the lighting, flooring, cabinets, countertops, door trim, baseboards, sink, and all new appliances. Following the kitchen remodel. Sergio and team replaced all the flooring in my house and repainted along with many other repairs and improvements. His crew is professional, timely, talented and thorough. Lastly, following the hailstorm in 2019, I needed help again, this time with trimming trees and sheet rock replacement. Sergio and team were there to take care of the work. I highly recommend this company.

Denis was very professional and detail oriented. We hired them to remodel our dated kitchen. There were challenges as we own a manufactured home. He was able to help us with our plan while at the same time refining and improving on our ideas. His word was "functional". The job was competed on time and within the allotted budget with no surprises or additional charges. His crew was prompt and professional and cleaned up every day. Everything Denis said they would do was done and then some. We are beyond pleased with the outcome. He helped guide us on the selection of flooring and granite which could have been overwhelming.

Recent Review: Jeff and his crew did an awesome job. They were very professional, inconvenienced us as little as possible and finished ahead of schedule. I was a novice at kitchen remodels and Jeff did a fantastic job of holding our hands and walking us through. He was very patient as we changed our minds about colors etc. and provided expert tasteful advice concerning every aspect of the job. I can't say enough about how lovely my new kitchen looks. I will definitely call Jeff anytime I need kitchen, bath or similar remodels. I even waited to do this review to see how the job would hold up and it is still beautiful. Jeff is there before, during and after the job to provide advice and, if necessary will come back to correct or repair. This company is as good or better than the big companies like Home Depot and Lowes and at a fraction of the price. Thank you Jeff for going above and beyond and making our kitchen and downstairs bathroom gorgeous.

Recent Review: Our experience with [Company name removed] was outstanding from start to finish.  We had previously used them to remodel our two bathrooms and the kitchen remodel was the first one ever done by [Company name removed].  During all three projects, we were never inconvenienced by the on-going construction, they were completed on time and the end result far exceeded our expectations.  All three rooms are AWESOME!!  Bottom line, they did what they said they'd do and it was well worth the price we paid.  We are extremely satisfied and highly recommend [Company name removed] for any bathroom or kitchen remodel.
