Additional Notes

Complaint: I called future flooring for an estimate for installation on floating flooring that i have at my dads home and asked if he can take a look at the job with a price and when he is able to install the floor. I asked him to call my dad with the correct home number and he did and was supposed to stop by the house and this is when the problem starts, he never came over the house and my dad called him back again and another date was set per future flooring for the second time and he never showed up again or called back. Me and my dad got someone else to do the job and we will never recomend future flooring to anyone ever. My dad called future flooring nicely to tell him that it was unprofessional for a no call no show on his part and that we have someone else to do the job and he just he has been working for 20 years and hung up on my dad.

Desired Settlement: Next time future needs to be honest and responsible to there potential customers. I don't want any reply from future flooring. I just want BBB to give them this complaint

Business Response: Right after I read this review, I immediately called this customer and his Dad with an apology for any inconvenience I have caused them.  I do remember asking my assistant to call this customer and reschedule due to current projects taking longer than expected.  I now know that was never done.  I will continue to work on communicating with customers more efficiently.   

My company would graciously appreciate not posting this review, as I currently have a A+ rating with the BBB that I would like to maintain.  I include the BBB logo on my web site, proposals, invoices, business cards, plus, I'm about to be featured in RI Monthly Magazine with the BBB logo as part of my advertisement.  Please advise... 

Consumer Response:

I have reviewed the response submitted by the business and have determined that the response does not satisfy or resolve my issues and/or concerns in reference to complaint .

There is no resolve needed, *** did apology and thats all i want. For three years I'v had problems  with many contractors either not calling me back or comming to the house to look at the job and ron did the same thing. I am tired of games with these contractors and don't know how some stay in business.

I can't believe *** has this behavor even being involved with BBB i thought i would be better with someone through BBB but i was proven wrong, I am very dissopointed!  I'am not with drawing this complaint and if *** calles me or my dad again i will put in another complaint for harrasment.



BBB's Final Determination: After reviewing the position of all parties, BBB determined that the business made a reasonable effort to address the complaint. However the consumer remains dissatisfied.
