Complaint: Company dragging it's feet to complete leveling job on house. First start date was 18 Feb. As of this date 15 April 2014 initial excavating has not been finished. Workers don't show up at all or only 2 workers will show up and work 4-5 hours. Piles of dirt and large holes though out back yard for over 1 1/2 months. Weather has NOT been an issue. Where is has rained in other areas, we have received only 1/2 inch since February. We have called them on countless occasions to ask where they are, and get every excuse from having another job that was delayed, to fixing an old ladies pipes that broke, to car problems. Were told we were a "priority" job 2 weeks ago. and haven't seen any workers the last 2 days (14&15) We are told the workers are running late and will be right out...and no one shows. When the workers are here they leave trash all over area. They defecate into bags which are then thrown into back field and our dog discovers, breaks, and rolls in them. They say they "keep us informed" but phone records show a majority of calls are from us.
Desired Settlement: Complete the job to our satisfaction by 30 April or quit, so we can get someone in here to finish this job.
RE: Addressing BBB Complaint
My initial visit and contract with Mr. & Mrs. **** addressed the need for a Foundation Investigation. The contract is dated 02/17/14 and was signed by them on 02/18/14. After the investigation was preformed, my second visit was to recap what foundation damage was found and to go over the scope of work that their home needed. Mr. and Mrs. **** were told at the onset of my second appointment that they could expect to wait 4-6 weeks for the foundation repairs to begin, due to Allen's current commitments. I also explained that Allen's Foundation was involved with a large apartment foundation repair project and that it had a "Time of the Essence" clause in that contract. Until it was complete, it would be the company's priority to complete—before starting any other jobs.
The investigation revealed that the ****** home had only four to five inches (4"-5") of crawl space under it. This means that soil has to be excavated and removed ("tunneled out") to allow a man to access the necessary areas of repair under the home. As of today, my crew has removed approximately twelve (12) yards of soil-by hand. The tunneling is approximately one hundred feet (100") in length. The men have to work on their bellies, with a short shovel, under the home. Once the soils are loosened, it then has to be placed in a container that also has to fit in the confined work space. Still on their bellies, the container has to be drug to the exterior access panel and removed from under the home.
Due to the limited space under the home, no more that two (2) men can work in the tunnel at any given a time, both because of lack of space and for safety reasons. It is slow, difficult work at best Please keep in mind that all tunneling has to be completed before any foundation repairs can be started.
I believe if you consider the conditions where the work was preformed and the quality of the work, the amount that Allen's Foundation invested in the **** 's project is on target. Hopefully this helps everyone understand why this process is slow.
