Complaint: We ordered and paid for counter tops for our kitchen on May 6, 2013. We were told that we would have them in 3 - 4 weeks. At 4 1/2 weeks they delivered the 5 counters, one that had bad coloring compared with the other 4, and one with a chip in it. Thirteen days later they arrived again with the 2 problem tops. The new one that replaced the one with a chip, now has 2 chips, and the other, although the color is right, has a seam that is not flush, and now there was also a chip in it. Eight days later we went to Hartford to see the progress, since we were tired of disconnecting the plumbing for each visit. The seam was still not flush and nothing had been done about the chips. We went back the next day and reluctantly accepted the counters. (There are tiny chips along the edges of some.) Twelve days later they installed the counters. In the process they put 4 chips in my porcelain sink. One is 6 inches long and about 1/2 in high. That one is in the front of the sink. They claim it is not their fault, that the sink was old. The sink had no chips when they started. They never mentioned the damage when they were here. They said to wait to clean up the area around the sink when the caulking was dry. We have also noticed that one counter doesn't even reach the end of the cabinet. It seems to me that 9 1/2 weeks is a long time to wait for poor workmanship and damage to a good sink. They offered us something for all our problems before the sink problem. We accepted a 4 ft.finished counter for my workshop of any light color. I feel they should either fix or replace our sink. We now have the hole cut in the counter for a sink of this size. If we have to replace it and can't find one the same size we will have to buy a new counter. Product_Or_Service: Counter tops
Desired Settlement: Fix or replace sink
Business Response: Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2013/07/31) */ Customer purchased counters only from Express Kitchens, Customer wanted to reuse their old sink which we put in. When we finished no damage was noted on the paperwork. Inspite of this we have contacted ***** and have ordered a touch up enamel kit to try and repair the chip. Customer has agreed to this solution and we will take the necessary steps to address his concerns Consumer Response /* (3000, 12, 2013/08/22) */ Express Kitchens came out yesterday to repair my sink. The sink still is in very poor condition. I am still very displeased with their response and the work they have done. I have given up ever getting any satisfaction from them. I don't think they really care about their customers after they get the money. I am left with a damaged sink, counters with small chips, and one counter that doesn't reach the end of the cabinet, and that counter is also not level. This job was supposed to be done in 3 - 4 weeks. We ordered and paid in full on May 6, 2013. To say the very least we are very disappointed in the job and the time it has taken.
BBB's Final Determination: After reviewing the position of all parties, BBB determined that the business made a reasonable effort to address the complaint. However the consumer remains dissatisfied.
