Complaint: 2-11-2016 Taylored Restoration Company, **** ****** * ****** *** ********** ** **** I entered an agreement with USAA and Taylored Equipment to do repair services for my home. Andrea, one of the Managers from Taylored Restoration was not communicating with me and not responding to my phone calls so I asked to be assigned a different Manager which they assigned Darryl to complete my home repairs. By this time, Juan the medigating Manager already started the dry out services. About August 6,2015, Juan and his crew from Taylored Restoration Services left their dry out equipment such as 2 big fans unattended at my home at: **** ***** ******* Anchorage, AK. There were no instructions as to when Juan was going to return to my property and check the fans and the floor and walls that were being dried out. After 2 days of letting the fans run without anyone from Taylored Company checking on the fans, I turned them off. On Monday, August 10th, Juan returned to my property and turned the fans back on. Again the communication was poor between Juan and his crew. On August 11th, the toilet bowl cracked in the middle of the water tank. It cracked at the bolts in the middle of the tank. I called Extreme Plumbing whom was referred by Taylored Company. Extreme Plumbing and Heating told me that they were unsure of how the toilet cracked and I explained to them that the fans were left unattended for 4 days straight with temps in the bathroom reaching over 85*. I explained this to Taylored Restoration but they denied that their equipment did not break the toilet. It ended up costing another $549.53 in repairs to do another clean up of the damage. I told USAA, my insurance company of this incident and they called Taylored Restoration and tried to resolve it. During November, 2015, I was in communication with Darryl and Juan of Taylored Company to address this $549.53 with the company. Darryl, Manager told me that he would look into it.
Desired Settlement: I never heard back from him and then I quit receiving a bill from Taylored Company so I thought the bill was taken care of then I get a bill during January 2016 from Collections. I am appealing this decision on Taylored Restorations Company due to the mismanagement of their equipment and poor communcation between their company and myself. Thank you very much and I appreciate Better Business Bureau in assisting me with this issue. I am hoping that Taylored Restoration Services with clear up the final bill and take responsibility for the damage cause d by them leaving their equipment unattended and not communication properly with me on the poor mitidigating services that they did. Also, that they would clear my name with Cornerstone Credit Collection agency.
This complaint was filed on 2/11/16 and this is the first notice I have received (2/22/2016 9:29pm). Please research your records and methods of contact and verify that you are sending to the correct contact address(es).
I will confer with our staff for summary of this project and respond with findings.
General Manager - Taylored Restoration
Taylored has had multiple contact points with Ms. *******, the tenant at the subject property (this is a rental property) and the insurance company. The tenant insisted on being present whenever we were on site, his schedule did not allow us consistent access.
Our records show that the toilet tank crack was discovered by the tenant on August 4th at 7am. The equipment referenced on August 6th was there to dry the bathroom because of the cracked tank by August 11th (date referenced in the complaint) the tank had been damaged for a week. Even with discrepancy in dates, there is no feasible explanation as to how the mitigation equipment could have caused the porcelain tank to crack.
USAA approved a second claim in this instance subject to a second deductible. This billing addresses that additional ensuing damage and said repairs were completed. Taylored staff has been in communication with Ms. ******* consistently via multiple texts, emails, letters and personal visits to our office.
Taylored ceased invoicing after turning the file over to Cornerstone Collections, of which she was notified was occurring by letter(s). We ask that she settle her billing with Cornerstone at her earliest possible convenience.
First of all: I want to make it very clear that I never requested to be on site when the workers needed to do their work at my home. I worked an 8-5 pm job and therefore; I never could be there to see what or if they were doing their job as they indicated. I do know the mitigating crew under Juan’s Supervision never phoned when they were running late nor even bothered to call when they did not show up at the house to do the clean up work. This caused a lot of delays and non- communication of what to expect.
2nd Fact: The dry out equipment was not there to dry out the cracked toilet that was on August 4, 2015. It was there due to the shower faucet leak and dry out the bathroom walls but the mitigating crew under Juan; Supervisor never returned to monitor or give clear instructions to us but just left it unsupervised from Friday morning until Monday August 2nd, 2015 morning. This is poor management of their mitigating crew. Their also is a break down communication between the mitigation Supervisor to the worker back to the overall Manager assigned to the project. Like I indicated above that they left the electric fans running for 4 days straight with not information of when they were returning.
Taylored Restoration received more than $6000 on this project that went beyond the estimated due completion repair date. They need to look at their communication patterns and follow up with your clients more thoroughly.

Complaint: Trying to charge me for clean up when i was informed by staff that the bill has been charged to upstairs condo owner due to his unit causing damage to my unit below. Staff stated that i did not owe the bill and that it was paid for by damaging unit owner. I asked staff of Taylored if i owed any charges for clean up prior to submitting bill to my insurance for repairs and was told that the damaging unit owned was billed.
Desired Settlement: I would like them to take up the bill of clean up with the homeowner upstairs and clear my name of any billing for clean up as the staff verified taht i did not owe any monies for clean up.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 8, 2014/11/11) */ Will research the issue and respond after I have information. Please let me know where you are sending notices. The only notification I received on this was by letter dated 10/28 that showed up here yesterday. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 10, 2014/11/17) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) Because I solved the problem by taking the insurance check for "clean-up' and paid the bill. Taylored Restoration had taken no responsibility owning up to the error that they generated that caused me 6 months of grief. I received several calls from them stating I owe, but thanks to **** they realized that they had signed documents stating I didn't owe you he whole time.
Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: We hired Taylored to go to assess and mitigate a small amount of water damage in our property in Wasilla. This was not an emergency call out was during normal business hours. We told the person answering the phone it could be performed schedule permitting. The tech went to the house and then called me to explain there was a small amount of water on the floor in the basement and he rolled back approximately 2-3 feet of carpet near the washing machine and placed a fan nearby for 4 hours. The bill we received was for an emergency callout for 1200.00. The services we received were not what we were billed for. When we received the bill I made 4 attempts to contact the office and each time given the run around and excuses and couldn't get in touch with the tech and the like. We later received a letter demanding payment which replied we would be happy to submit payment for the actual services rendered and to resubmit a correct bill. Instead, Taylored turned it over to collects to try and force us to pay for services we did not receive. We offered a settlement but it was rejected. This company is a rip off. As well, the service they did perform was not adequate and we later had to pay 1300.00 for mold remediation due to the water.
Desired Settlement: Give us a corrected statement for the services actually performed and we will gladly remit. We also feel we are due compensation for the mold remediation cost we later had to pay and an apology.
From our Wasilla Mitigation Mgr:
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
Taylored invoicing was reduced previously as a gesture of goodwill. Photos were attached to past rebuttal, may be an issue with the BBB site. We will not be reducing our invoicing further as current bill is for substantially less than the services performed.

Complaint: Taylored Restoration agreed to begin a bathroom remodel for me starting 12/16/13. On that day, the worker showed up and asked me if I had the material for the project and needed to measure the work area. He needed to do this despite the estimator taking measurements already and the company assuring us that they were ordering the material necessary for the job. It turns out they had forgotten to order the tile so they could not begin the job for over a week. Since we were expecting house guests the next week, because we were getting married, we had to end up putting our relatives in a hotel. I also had to take off of work a second time when they did start the project. At this point, I left a message for the estimator, ***** ******* to call me, stating that I would appreciate a discount in the price of the project because of me having to take off work twice and having to put people up in hotels because of their error. He never returned the call. After the project was completed, it turned out that the floor tile would not be regrouted as was listed in the contract. I once again left a message with ***** ****** asking for a more detailed contract invoice than the one I received since the regrouting never occurred. I also spoke with a person named **** *** 2 times who said that she would ask Mr. ****** to call me. Mr. ****** still has not called me and their invoice asks that I pay the amount due 2/21/14.
Desired Settlement: I originally asked for a 10% discount on the final cost of the project but since I have had to put so much effort into this, I am now requesting a %15 discount.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 6, 2014/02/18) */ Our estimator had an appointment yesterday at 2pm to review details of the project. There are some quality issues that Taylored needs to address that hopefully will resolve this complaint. Taylored's production dept has been notified and will be scheduling repairs to be made. Final Consumer Response /* (2000, 8, 2014/02/19) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.) The appointment occurred. I hope that they will be able to resolve the quality concerns. They have also talked about taking a couple of items off of the bill. If this occurs, it will help offset the time and cost that their error caused. Time will tell.
