Did not finish work as described in the contract.
Wanted to charge me again to complete what should have been done upon completion.
I signed a contract with Mr. ** ****** on July 13, 2013 to do renovations to a downstairs room. Adding a bathroom and a closet. I paid half down as the contract required. And the remaining before the work was completed. When Mr. ****** said the work was done there still things that he had not addressed that was part of the contract but he wanted me to do change order for $75 and charge me the cost of finishing those items. There is a hole in the wall of the closet, no rod in the closet for hanging clothes, the bathroom had glue oozing from the tiles, to which he told me soap and water would remove it. There were paint spots on the carpet, as well as other red spots, one of the closet doors was loose, and old switch plate was put back on when the rest of the room had some new ones. I am very unhappy with the way things were left. I want a refund of 20% of the final $1,979.00 that was paid before completion of the job. If I had not paid that up front I would have held it back until he honored every thing he was to do. I would not recommend his to any one because he does not complete or finish the work as he is contracted to do. He also left no baseboard around a portion of the room.

Desired Settlement
I want a refund of $395.80 which is 20% of the $1,979 that was part of the final cost which I paid before the work was complete. I have someone that will take that as payment to complete what Mr. ****** and his company did not do.

Business' Initial Response
Thank you for the feedback. While we at Hantel Construction Co always want to have happy customers, in this case apparently we have let our customer down. Please note that the customer paid the final balance due of her own accord before the job was completed and therefore, before it was required per the contract.

In order to restore our customer's 100% satisfaction, we are currently working with her to resolve the issues. While we maintain that the baseboard and the closet rod were not part of the contract, we have agreed to provide them to the customer at no charge as a good faith measure. We have removed the spots from the carpeting as well as have performed other minor tasks that the customer added when we met with her this week. The customer had already resolved the hole in the wall, the tile glue and the switch plate before we returned to her home. We will also be replacing the loose closet door for her next week once a new door has been received.

As far as we are aware, we have addressed all of the issues that the customer has to her satisfaction. Therefore, we will not be issuing a refund.

Our objective at Hantel Construction Co is to provide every customer with 100% satisfaction. We have found that our customers are our best advocates and we appreciate when a customer returns or refers other business to us. Every employee, from design to installation, works hard to accomplish this goal.

Consumer's Final Response
On September 11, 2013 Hantel Construction Co completed all unfinished work that I had requested in a satisfactory manner. Thanks.
