Additional Notes

Complaint: Friday, April 18th *****, Premium Waterproofing owner arrives on my property to repair a crack in my foundation for the third time. We spoke in January about the same crack under warranty. When he completes the work on the 18th, he leaves telling me I owe him $400.00 for the service in contradiction to our original January conversation of warranty service. After receiving a verbal amount owed, I ask him why there is a charge and the warranty is not valid. He responds by telling me there is a charge for the day and without an invoice he tells me to call him with my credit card numbers including the three-digit security code to make sure he receives his money. I tell him I'm surprised now that this service is not under warranty but we can talk about details. He then tells me the charge can be reduced to $350.00 but I do owe him for the day. Later I text him telling him this is different than our January conversation at which point he tells me the charge is %570.00 because he needs to add the labor for a problematic downspout and for digging the hole by the foundation. At this point I feel he is searching for any reason to charge me the original full price especially when I explain in the text as I did in person that I moved the downspout 2.5yrs ago and I dug the hole myself two days prior to the service. I do not feel that I own this company any money and I feel threatened that the conversation has since changed from covered under warranty to a full charge. ***** has also added in a returned text that he is placing a contractor's lien on my property leaving me with no choice but to file a complaint.

Desired Settlement: I need to have a full lifetime warranty service provided without manipulations and unwarranted charges.
