Complaint Resolution Log (1)
09/05/2016Problems with Product / Service | Read Complaint Details

The work I was promised would be done was not completed.
I hired Mr. ***** for construction services within my home. Initially he started to job without requesting electrical or plumbing codes and upon discussion he finally requested which held up the job. A contract was signed and services were paid for each job but he would start another job without finishing. The issue continued as one of his workers stole money and items from my home. He continued to leave jobs unfinished and always had personal problems that kept him from finishing the work. The job was not supposed to take more than 3 months but lasted more 6 months. He said the job was finished and left an a lot unfinished work that he never finished. He kept sending workers here randomly to do jobs that were done incorrectly and eventually never reached out again for completion of the work.

Desired Settlement
I had to hire someone to complete some of the work therefore I would like a refund of paid services. If not a refund no contact please.

Business Response
Contact Name and Title: ******* ***** owner
Contact Email: ************
Ms.********* was a model client. I would first like to apologize for any inconvenience or discomfort or disruption that I caused her or her family.And I would be more than willing to reimburse her for her lose.

Consumer Response
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
I accept the apology but he has apologized many times and there was still no resolution. He has promised many times that the work would get done and then not show up. I don't feel that he is trustworthy. Once I receive the funds in the mail I will consider this complaint as resolved.

Final Business Response
I delivered the payment ms.********* request Friday the 26th

Final Consumer Response
(The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.)
I would want other consumers to be aware of such practices because I wouldn't want them to endure what I had to with this business.
