Additional Notes

Complaint: In August as part of replacing windows (that is another story) they replaced an outside board on my bay window and the board is twisted and does not fit in the space and the installation looks like a three-year old got hold of a white caulk gun and started making a mess. It is visible from the street and looks awful. I have called since August to get this fixed and this weekend it will be Halloween. They have come out two times. I was there and if they rang the bell, I did not hear it. They did not knock. They did not call to see if I was there. They did not call back to reschedule. I have had to call and call and call, and somehow it is ages before they get back and nothing has been done. Terrible workmanship and terrible service.

Desired Settlement: PROMPTLY fix the mess.

Business Response:

As stated by Mrs. ****** we have attempted to resolve her issues on 2 separate occasions. Once in August and again in September. On both occasions, after scheduling a service call, Mrs. ****** was not at home at the agreed upon time. On both occasions our technicians rang the bell, knocked on the door , walked around the house and called her home phone. We left message on the phone and notice of our attempted service posted on her door with the technicians phone number. We never heard back until this week that she was ready to have the service rescheduled for the third time.. We pride ourselves on outstanding customer service and look forward to resolving Mrs. Weston's issues. We have attempted twice  this morning to reach Mrs. Weston  ( left voice messages) indicating our willingness to resolve her concerns.

Consumer Response:
At the time they claim to have circled my house I had a Jumbo German Shepherd who was loose behind a locked fence in the back yard (the fence is always locked).  I would have  heard him barking furiously if anyone had tried to get into the back yard.  That did not happen.  I did not hear a call and my phone caller ID did not show that they called at all.  Since I was in the house, even if I did not hear the bell ring, I would have heard the knock, and I would certainly have heard the dog.  They have been very negligent about getting this taken care of.  Two visits, without follow-up,  since the beginning of August is not exactly outstanding customer service.  I got their message (yes, Gene left one) and they are scheduled to come by next Wednesday, Nov. 4.  Seeing is believing.  I specifically asked them to call and  to leave a message if no one answered.  Gene has been quite rude in asserting that they are the best there is and I am a liar.
