Complaint Resolution Log (1)
09/21/2015Delivery Issues | Read Complaint Details

I was quoted $1995.00 to have the ceilings of my manufactured home scrapped and was told it would be ready for painting after 24 hours. The guys arrived late with no phone call and I had to call to see what had happened to them. *** said he'd look into it and call me back. I did not receive a return call but his guys showed up shortly after that. I walked into the house while they were packing up there things to find one of the guys using a wood colored crayon to color over damage they had done to some built ins. There was damage to other built ins they failed to color in. I was told that I could clean up the spills I see with a warm, wet sponge and was shone how easy it was to clean up after them. The guys were done in about 4 hours. Old neighbors of mine said I was over charged, that for 1440 sq. ft. I should have only been charged about $1,000.00 When the painter, referred by ***, arrived to quote he included a charge to clean up the mess left by ***'s Ceilings & Walls. I feel as thou I am having to pay the painter for cleanup the ceiling people should have taken care of.

Desired Settlement
I was essentially charged $166.00/man/hour. They caused damage and left a mess that I am going to have to pay additional companies to take care of. I feel cheated and I'd like a refund of moneys paid to Don's Ceilings to cover these costs due to their workmanship.

Business Response
The facts are that on our contracts it states that there is a little bit of residue and clean up after we finish.and acoustic ceiling removal in 1400 square-foot home is the messiest project you can possibly have done there were a few kernels left over and some of this happens when we're taking the plastic out,or during the masking process.she wanted me to come all the way back to her home which was 50 miles away to clean up a couple pieces of acoustic.I never heard anything about any damage to any furniture. The painter we recommend has to re-massive entire home and prime and paint all the ceilings and he cleans up a little bit after if there is any residue or three no but he does not charge the customer.and as far as being overcharged I gave you the code is 1995 and you excepted that quote is a long distance to go for us and we could not possibly do that job in another job in the same day with a four man crew it's expensive to be in business.most of the companies would have you out for two days by doing it for two or three days with one man.we make 99.9% of our customers very happy and have great reviews on home advisor.The company removes more acoustic ceilings than any other ceiling company in Southern California and have been in business for 25 years successfully.stand behind our work and this is frivolous.
