Complaint: Services not being done. On March 20th of this year purchased a home and hired this company to remodel and add an addition to home. Since that time it has been hard to have anything done to home . Only two weeks of work has been completed. **** ***** has admitted it is due to personal issues. He didn't pay for dumpster when they came to get it the company was going to dump it in my yard due to non payment. Got that handled. His framers started another job before finishing my home. His plumber did something to our water heartier and it is now leaking water all over our floor plus cut a whole in the roof but did not cover it. I have paid the full estimate price of 46,000.00 and only about 8,000.00 in work has been done.
Business' Initial Response Dumpster company was paid in full after correct P.O. Box was confirmed with owner.
The personal problems on my part consist of the inability to find another framer to step-in and quickly finish the job. My subs are reputable and therefore busy with work from various contractors.
The homeowner hired their own roofer without approval who did not install a required vent boot and charged them more than the amount budgeted. I will have to pay this overage myself. The homeowner is claiming that the vent boot is the plumber's responsibility but they are mistaken. Plumbers don't work on the roof and the responsibility lies with the roofer or the party that hired the roofer. I have scheduled a roofer to install a proper vent boot on June 14, 2013 and I will pay for the additional service. The plumber will be held responsible for any leak as a result of their work.
Framers applied supports to existing roof that was in an unsafe condition. This scope of work was not outlined in original contract specs although it was approved by homeowner to execute. The framing specs, timeline and budget resulted in an overage due to extra work. Consequently, the framing crew had other jobs scheduled in-line with other builders. They are currently finishing a job and will be back to this job soon.
The amount of money paid at this point for the job is secured and available to complete job. This has no bearing on the problems we have encountered. My problems with this job are the results of material and labor overages plus material availability. My intentions are to finish framing as soon as we can and continue with the remainder of project in a timely manner.
Consumer's Final Response (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.)
Business' Final Response The roofer, hired by the homeowner, did not install the bent boot required to prevent water from getting in home. The plumber offered to install the boot but failed to follow up with his word to the homeowner.
A roofer was hired by me to install a boot on the roof. I have agreed to absorb this additional cost myself. All is good with this issue.
Consumer Response Work is still not completed. No permit was ever pulled for the job. I can not insure my home due to work not being completed. We no longer want this contractor on the job. We want the rest of our money refunded back with an itemized bill.

Complaint Resolution: Company failed to resolve the complaint issues through BBB voluntary and self-regulatory process.
The information in the table below represents an industry comparison of businesses which are of the same relative size. This is based on BBB's database of businesses located in 45 counties in MiddleTennessee and Southern Kentucky. Businesses may engage in more than one type of business. The percent of time the business engages in a type of business is not accounted for. There is no known industry standard for the number of complaints a business can expect. The volume of business and number of transactions may have a bearing on the number of complaints received by BBB.
BBB records show the issues raised in the complaint have been resolved. Either customer confirmed the complaint has been resolved, or business confirmed the complaint has been resolved and customer did not respond to BBB correspondence informing customer that complaint will be considered resolved unless BBB hears otherwise from customer.
BBB found business made good faith effort to resolve complaint but customer not satisfied with business response
BBB found that business adequately addressed the disputed issues and made a good faith effort to resolve them; however, customer has informed BBB that he/she is not satisfied with the outcome. In some cases, business may have agreed to mediate or arbitrate the complaint but customer declined to participate in mediation/arbitration.
Customer not satisfied with business response; BBB did not find business made good faith effort to resolve complaint
BBB did not find that business adequately addressed the disputed issues and made a good faith effort to resolve them, and customer has informed BBB that he/she is not satisfied with the outcome. In some cases, customer may have agreed to mediate or arbitrate the complaint but business declined to participate in mediation/arbitration.
BBB did not receive a response from business
BBB did not receive a response from business after two attempts to contact business, and BBB communications with customer do not show that business contacted customer to resolve the complaint.
BBB cannot process complaint
This includes situations where BBB cannot locate business, business is no longer in business, or business is in bankruptcy and complaints must be submitted through bankruptcy trustee.
Your complaint will be forwarded to the company within two business days. The company will be asked to respond within 14 days, and if a response is not received, a second request will be made. You will be notified of the company's response when we receive it (or notified that we received no response). Complaints are usually closed within 30 business days.
