Complaint Detail(s)

Additional Notes

Complaint: I worked with Stone City to handle fabrication and installation of kitchen countertops and a fireplace facade. I selected stone and provided the salesperson with measurements to get an initial quote. I scheduled measurements immediately. When I didn't received my estimate 24 hours later (when they said I should receive it), I reached out to them, to no avail. Ten days after I was supposed to receive my quote I finally received it, but not in the CAD format that was needed to approve the renderings. I then received notification from Stone City that my initial sales person left the company, but prior to that had never submitted my stone order for ordering and/or fabrication. Additionally, I was quoted a price $1200 more for measurements they said I didn't provide them with, I most certainly did and have a witness who will agree with me. I was told that from the time measurements were taken, i could expect an installation date 7-10 business days later. I was provided with an installation date that is between 15-16 business days. Because of this error on their part, Stone City is delaying my construction timeline and affecting my scheduled move-in date.

Desired Settlement: I am shocked and dismayed I need to pay an additional $1200 because of their employees' oversight, but really what I want is for the company to stay true to its word and provide installation on the date they quoted me (6/17) or as close to that as humanly possible. My order should expedited, they have even said that this is a "major ***** up", their words, not mine.

Additional Notes

Complaint: We contracted with this company in July 2013 for a vanity and countertop for our bathroom. The vanity was partially installed in October 2013, but without the baseboard to the vanity. The countertop was installed in November. Per the company's payment terms, 75% of the balance is due prior to fabrication, and the final 25% is due upon approval of final installation. We paid the initial 75% and have been waiting for Stone City to schedule final installation of the baseboard to pay the final 25%, as per the payment terms. We contacted Stone City in November 2013 and December 2013 to request a date for final installation. Stone City acknowledged that it still had the baseboard and offered to send it to us at a reduced rate (for lack of installation) or to schedule installment. We asked them to install it and they said they would get back to us. They did not contact us to schedule final installation. Instead, the contacted us in January 2014 requesting payment of the 25% balance. We again reminded them that they had not installed the baseboard to the vanity and offered to pay the balance once they agreed to install it. Stone City did not respond to our request that they complete installation. Instead, the send the matter to the ******** Law Group, **** W. ******* Ave., to seek collection of the balance without completing installation. Stone City is clearly in material breach of the contract for failure to complete installation, and referring the matter to collection was improper and in violation of its own payment terms.

Desired Settlement: Specific performance of the contract, i.e., complete installation of the baseboard. Or, if it will not install the baseboard, cancellation of the contract.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/06/06) */ Upon receiving notification of the pending issue, Stone City took immediate action to contact the client and schedule the delivery and installation of the remaining cabinetry piece. The piece is to be delivered and installed Thursday, June 12th, as discussed and agreed upon with the client. Stone City additionally offered the client a monetary discount for any inconveniences incurred throughout the process.

Additional Notes

Complaint: The custom cabinet was purchased on August 10th and was deliverd with not 1 of the 3 features that I paid in full for. I had to call approximately 15 times to figure out the 2 of the 3 pieces were lost in Stone City's warehouse. To date, the 3 feature has not been delivered even though I paid in full.

Desired Settlement: I am seeking the 3rd custom piece of the cabinet and retribution for my time in obtaining the product that I paid for.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/12/17) */ Missing piece has been ordered. Client has received a copy of the order as well as the acknowledgement from the cabinet manufacturer. As soon as shipment tracking information is available, it too will be provided to the client. Final Consumer Response /* (3000, 7, 2013/12/23) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) It has been over a week and the tracking number has not been received. The missing piece has still not been obtained. Final Business Response /* (4000, 9, 2013/12/26) */ Client has received a copy of the order and the order acknowledgement from the manufacturer. A tracking number will be provided to her when one becomes available from the cabinet company. The client has documentation of all of the dates including order date, acknowledgement date, and expected ship date.
