Complaint Detail(s)

8/5/2013 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: Tru Blu, owner ****, put in a new pool deck about 15 months ago. He guaranteed the work for 5 years. The deck is defective, chipping and cracking after only 15 months. He fails to respond to phone calls and a service request to come out to review the defect. I am not counting on any restitution or repair coming from this company because Tru Blu did not even perform the work; they enlist a contractor when you hire Tru Blu to do the work. I paid $4900.00 in March 2012 for a new deck and it is cracking and chipping.

Desired Settlement: I can't even get a phone call or repair visit from this company. I undoubtedly made a bad choice to select Tru Blu.

Business Response:

We did comunicate & had her on the schedule for this week to do repairs.  I believe she will be calling to retract complaint. Please remove at that

time from records, because there was no reason for complaint to begin with.  Thanks.  **** *******.  Tru Blu.  ###-###-####.

Consumer Response:


I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID 9637010, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.  Tru Blu, did in fact, respond to my deck repair need and performed satisfactory service to the issue.  I recommend that this complaint be dropped or removed from BBB.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I paid Tru Blu $2,650.00 to replastered my pool 3 years ago, recently a large piece of plaster came loose, this could only happen if the replaster process was not done correctly. Tru Blu only has a 1 year warranty. **** ******* of Tru Blu said that for another $1,600.00 they will replaster my pool again, although Tru Blu's plaster guy said this is definately a warranty issue that usually happens in the first year. I don't trust Tru Blu to do the job again... Also Tru Blu has the BBB seal on the front of the documents they hand out to customers but the BBB website says they are not affiliated with the BBB... I've requested twice that someone other than **** ******* give me a call but I get no response.

Desired Settlement: I have found another company that will replaster my pool for 1,600.00 dollars, requesting Tru Blu split the cost with me to resolve issue.

Business Response:

We agreed w/ ***** to repair his plaster for a set amount. When we showed up to do the repair he changed his mind to get a price to Replaster

the pool. I called & gave him a great price. ***** didn't like the price & called back to talk with someone else but me. I am the only decision maker

@ Tru Blu so I did not call him back. We have a 1 year warranty on the pools, this was 3 years later & I am under obligation to do nothing. I was

willing to work w/ ***** because he was a customer, but he ended the conversation w/ me. Thanks.

Consumer Response:


  " I was pleased to receive a call from **** ******* last Friday morning 8-17-12;   Where I presented **** my offer for a reasonable resolution. Which was the same wording as in the original complaint.

****'s last words to me was that he would take my offer into consideration."
