Additional Notes

Complaint: This contractor has damaged my property while installing a fence for my neighbor. He has destroyed parts of my driveway and damaged greenery. Kustom fence has been installing a fence on my neighbors property at ******************************. The work began on Sept 9th. He was doing this without a license as I called the license board in ********* who said he had not pulled a permit for the work.City officials came and shut down his work on Sept 16th until a license was provided. During the installation Kustom fence brought a Bobcat onto my property and damaged my driveway, lawn and shrubs by literally running over them with their bobcat. The lawn has significant tire track damage and many of the shrubs that separated our property for years have been obliterated by damage from his Bobcat. I came to my property at ************ on Sept 9th to find that his truck and bobcat were parked in my driveway! I told him to stay off my property until the damage was fixed. Today, Sept 21st he is back and has equipment, fencing material etc. laying in my driveway and on my property. He has so much material on my property that my home builder came and then left the site because he could not work around all of the material on my site.

Desired Settlement: I would like Kustom fence to repair the damage to my lawn i.e. fix the lawn that was damage and seed the area. In addition, I would like them to plan shrubs or plants where damage occurred to my plants or give me an allowance to complete the work myself.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 7, 2015/10/01) */ (BBB - converted from original document. See file.) ________________ 9/25/15 Kustom Fencing Co. inc. 1209 Coventry Rd Barberton, OH 44203 RE: Case #*********: Mr. ********* **** When started this job, I asked Mr. **** if it was okay to work on his property. He agreed That it was okay to work on his property. The reason I didn't apply for the permit is because thought it was in ************, because saw a sign 4 mile away that said ************. I did get the permit after that. did not remove any of his shrubs, the customer Mr. ****** removed them. was told that My customer would re-seed the grass and put shrubs back up. This was already communicated With Mr **** and agreed upon. He is building a house and has heavy equipment going up and down his driveway. did not block his driveway at any time, that would stop them from working on the house. Sincerely yours, Jerry H****** Owner, Kustom Fencing Co Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 9, 2015/10/09) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) After the initial trespassing by Kustom Fence on my property I told them to stay off of the property and not come back on. Instead of taking this advice the workers continued to come in to my property and had large pieces of fencing laying on the lawn and driveway which hindered my construction manager's work. The foliage on my property is almost completely decimated within 3-4 feet of the fence and it does not appear that any repair or re-planting has been done to it, nor has grass seed been replanted in locations where the Bobcat drove up the embankment. My complaint will be dropped if and when Kustom Fence or my neighbor has all repair and planting work complete and when Kustom Fence apologizes in writing for bringing heavy equipment onto my property and causing damage as well as refusing to stay off my property once they were asked to do so.
