Additional Notes

Complaint: ***** ******'s (Genco) crew constructed a rod iron / King-ranch styled fence for our back yard. He finished the construction the end of December. A final inspection was not able to be done prior to him receiving complete payment due to travel and weather. Upon our arrival back home the beginning of January, we found that several posts were not set in cement, only in the mud. This section includes the back gate. Understandably, this section of the fence is barely standing up. Caps are missing from several posts. There are areas of the fence that are rusting already. We were told by ***** ****** that we have a 10 year warranty, however, we never received a written warranty. I spoke to ***** the end of January and he mentioned that he was backed up in work. I told him to call me at his convenience. However, by March, we thought he'd at least contact us with some information as to when he would be coming by. In March we wrote him a registered letter, stating that the workmanship problems needed to be addressed by March 20, and a completion date of April 11. We never heard from him. I called and texted him the end of March and have not heard a word from him.

Desired Settlement: We would like to have him come back and finish the job or if we need to get another fence contractor to finish the job, we want him to pay for the work that needs to be done.

Consumer Response:

RE:  Genco Fence & Construction Inc.  

Right after you initiated contact with *****, he finally called us to set up a time to get the work finished.  We met on April 28, 2015 and let him know what needed to be done.  He called his crew in and within a couple of hours had everything done to our satisfaction.  I just don't understand why it had to take 4 months to get the work done and his inability to follow-up or answer his phone.  My husband and I personally would not recommend him to anyone else due to his inability to communicate or follow-up with people.  

We are most grateful for your help in this matter.  I don't think we would have resolved this issue without your help. 

Thanks so very much!
