Complaint Resolution Log (3)
04/18/2014Problems with Product / Service | Read Complaint Details

I contracted ***** *** of Centerville Pipestone Chimney Service to replace an chimney and fireplace, which they were paid a total of $5,075 at the end of April 2013. ***** *** returned on Aug 10th to recaulk around the chimney, due to the fact that I had rain water entering the interior of my house (attic). On Sept 13th 2013 this company returned and installed a coller around chimney pipe that still did not fix the water problem. On Oct 21st I made an appointment with the receptionist for Oct 25th, but nobody showed up. I made contact with someone from this company, again on Oct 25th, Nov 18th, and 12/4 and each time I was told that they would send a professional roofer to fix the problem. To this date, this company has failed to do so, and I still have water entering my attic.

Desired Settlement
This company needs to have a professional roofer fix the water problem that is occurring around there newly installed chimney pipe.

This company provided a damaged unit and has not replied to our emails or phone calls.
We accepted a proposal from ***** *** (Pipestone Chimney Services)to install a wood burning stove (Napoleon Oakdale EPI-1402), with a new liner and cap, plus a second flue liner. The cost of this proposal is $4150.00. The work was done on November 24, 2015. At the time of installation the front plate was damaged and we were told it would be replaced shortly. We paid with a check. We e-mailed on December 10 asking for information on the replacement part and asking about the air flow control that did not work as described in the owners' manual, and the reply was that they would check on it. I e-mailed them again on January 10, January 29, and February 12 with no reply. I called on February 9 and 25, and left messages but have not received a reply.

I contacted the manufacturer and their reply leads me to believe the air control unit does not function properly.

Desired Settlement
We are asking the company to reply to our calls, replace the damaged piece, and repair the air flow control so that the wood burning stove will operate according to the manual.
