Additional Notes

Complaint: Woodmaster was hired to install an Aluminum fence for us in the backyard. The fence was not installed properly. The posts are loose and the panels of the fence were never screwed in properly. The yard was left in ruins. We have big holes in the yard where mistakes were made when digging the fence post holes. These were never filled in and remain in my yard to date. As a result of the panels not being screwed in, the panels separate from the posts and fall over constantly. We have also received notification from the ******* ** ******* that the fence has failed the final inspection and needs to be repaired to meet code immediately. I have contacted ***** the owner, in writing on 4 different occasions and have been put off each time. Excuses have been made and promises to have someone come out have not been fulfilled. We had the project completed in October and as of February 28, repairs and proper installation have not been completed. **** has stated weather as one issue, however, we have not had a harsh winter with a huge amount of snow and the temperature has been above freezing for a while. We are extremely disappointed in this company and cannot believe we spent over $5,000 on a fence that was not completed properly and a yard that was completely ruined.

Desired Settlement: We would like the repairs to be completed to the meet the ******* ** ******* standards. We would like these completed ASAP. If the company is unable to make the repairs, we would like another business to do the repairs correctly and we will seek reimbursement for the repairs from Woodmaster.

Business Response: Shortly after that job was completed, that installer made mistakes on other jobs and he was released from employment w/WoodMaster Fence.   I did not know at the time there was a problem w/********** job. When I found out, I had sent a different installer out there to take care of the problem in early Dec. and thought everything was taken care of.  Obvoiusly, he didn't go out there either.  I will have an installer that has been excellent for us out there in the next seven days.  I guarantee he will take care of all ********** concerns.
