Gutter Repair reviews in Fortson

    Wes did a great job. We scheduled a date and he was there as planned. I just wish it was a week earlier because that's when we had a heavy rain for the first time in months. Hasn't rained hardly at all since. Wes was great, he came out and walk us through what he was going to do. Very professional. Call Wes if you need gutters!

    They were reasonably punctual, did basic prep on the deck, but painted over leaves stuck between deck floor slats instead of removing then. The gutter repair is fine, as are the other repair. Occasionally things were not clear; Sam is the only one fluent in English, most of the other fellows were not, so I had to explain what I wanted to him and then he told the guys what I wanted.

    Wes is the best. I toyed with the idea of doing this myself and I'm glad I chose a true professional. From the time when he came out to provide a quote to answering my questions after installation Wes was forthright and put me at ease. My gutters look fantastic, blend perfectly with my home and trust me they work after the downpours we had this week. I would call Wes again in a second and just wish he did other work so I could hire him again.

    I am a good judge of character and Wes and his son Nathan are good men.

    The work done on my rental house looks pretty good. Of course, there?s more to repair and paint work than what can be seen on the surface. Since I could only check in about once a day, I would generally have to trust that work was being performed to my expectations.
    It was on one of my daily stops that my crisis of confidence began. Some of my vertical window moldings had concave and cracked faces at their lower ends -- sure signs that they were rotting inside. I had pointed these out to Jason, when he came to bid the job. He had said they would be repaired with a Bondo-like filler, before being painted. What I found in my spot check, was that the cracks had been filled with caulk, as if they were simply going to be painted over, with no repair to the rot. I pointed this out to the painter, and told him that was not OK. He agreed, saying they had been caulked by mistake, and that the moldings would be repaired properly. I also spoke to Jason on the phone. He apologized, and said the bad spots would be replaced with new wood sectioned in.
    When I was called to the site on the last day, for final check and payment, I found that the moldings were not repaired, and had simply been painted over! I was probing them with a knife blade, but, Jason joined in with a screwdriver, gouging out rot from the moldings I had been aware of, and found several more moldings that needed repair. Jason said it would all be taken care of in the next hour or so.
    We also looked at a repair he had made to a rotted garage door frame that we had discussed on our initial meeting. At that meeting, we agreed that the wood should not run all the way to the concrete -- that being a common construction error that leads to rot. We agreed that there should be an uncaulked, 3/8 inch gap, to allow for air circulation, and to prevent wicking of water. I was SO glad to find someone that understood this commonsense approach to such a common problem. But, the repair DID run all the way to the to the concrete, and was caulked around. When I made note of that, Jason said it was not a problem, because he had used pressure-treated wood for the 4-inch repair section. He might be right. He might be wrong, with the contact still allowing water to wick up to the original wood above the repair. But, the real issue is that the repair was not done as we had agreed.
    I left for a while, so the rot repairs could be made, and so I might get a grip on my tension. It was about 90 minutes before I was called back. I spent most of that time asking myself questions like these: How could home repair guys either A), not recognize obviously rotted molding, or B), think it is ever OK to paint over rotten wood? How could they make the same mistake a second time, when it had already been pointed out to them? Could proper repairs be done to the rotted wood in the last 90 minutes of a week-long job? Had all other aspects of the work been done as we had agreed, and/or to accepted best practices? I DON'T KNOW, and, I don?t appreciate being forced to entertain such questions.
    When I got back, Jason showed me where he had sectioned in wood to the areas of worst rot, and had used Bondo-filler on the others. As we were going over the bill, he stated that he had not charged me for any rot repair, noting there was no line-item for it on the estimate. Really? Lacking any evidence to the contrary, I would have expected that a certain amount of rot repair is figured into a paint job in the same way that a certain amount of decking repair is figured into a roofing job. At any rate, we had certainly discussed rot repair when he came to bid the job.
    I?ll conclude with a point in Jason?s favor. I had taken bids from two other repair guys. I did not hire them, in part, because they resisted the notion that Masonite and fiber cement boards needed to have their backs and edges painted even where it would not show, to give them proper service life. Jason did understand this, and did see that all sides were painted. He also used a recommended primer for fiber cement products that I had not been aware of.

    Once I called they were very responsive and arrived on time for the appointment.  they were very forthright about when they could get to my job and they did it when they said they could.  The person that did the estimate was very professional and explained all of the details and what they could do, and then they did it exactly.  They did a very good job and cleaned up everything and left no debris on the work site.

    They knocked on doors of our neighborhood and we agreed to let a salesman explain what they do. I thought the salesman would never leave but he made such a polished presentation with props and promises of skilled workmanship and guarantees, we agreed to let them fix a small drain problem we have in the front of our house. Two men came on the correct day and time. The supervisor stayed on his cell phone for most of the visit while the worker estimated cuts to be made WITHOUT A RULER that I could ever see. When I would question the worker, he would shrug and point to the supervisior who was on the phone. When they finished, I pointed out where their design was going to cause debris and water to go under my shingles. After a lot of discussions with them and their boss and after my temporarily refusing to pay, that problem was corrected within a few days. However, I didn't notice until after a few rains that the vertical spout had been cut short and where it was attached to a curved piece near the ground, it was held together with only a tiny screw which tore through the gutter, detaching from the ground piece. I repeatedly reported this and nobody came on the one appointment date I could get. Meanwhile, they keep calling to offer to sell me something new and I always remind them that they didn't repair their spout as promised. And, the vicious cycle of promises and continues. This time, though, I would not hire them again if they were the only gutter company around.

    I received another solicitation recently and when I pointed out how poor their service is, to my surprise, the caller admitted that service was bad in the Columbus, GA area and that for that reason, they had closed their business in Columbus. However, he promised that if I would only call the Corporate Office in Atlanta, GA, (866-325-4219) someone would take care of my problem as there is a lifetime warranty. I called today (July 27, 2011) and had to leave a message. If this issue is resolved, I will certainly want to update this.
