Additional Notes

Complaint Category: Failure to honor a repair estimate or agreement

Complaint: Window with broken seal was not repaired after many attempts to have company return on-site. Had to pay another company to fix the issue.
Our house had 7 windows installed this fall by Handymanz R-Us. Once of the Windows continually leaked in heavy rain. We contacted the company 3 times before they came back on-site and said all was fixed after they recaulked the windows. The next rain storm the window leaked again and water stained the drywall below the window and was leaking onto the carpet. They said it was due to broken siding outside out house but would come by the next time it was above freezing to recalk. Waited and they did not come. Called again and they said they would be sending someone later that week (this was early December). Here we are late January and nobody has showed up. After giving up faith in them, we contacted************************ who came on site today with a SCHEDULED appointment, found out the issue was with a broken seal on the Window and they repaired it for $75.00 out of our pocket.
