Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: We received a call for a routine chimney cleaning from All American Chimney on Monday June **** in the early evening hours. On Wednesday June **** the company came in the morning to perform this service. During the cleaning, my husband was told that the chimney collapsed and that its repair was urgent. My husband is not a strong English speaker and in a panic agreed to the repairs after fearing they were extremely necessary but trusting that the estimate was accurate and also fearing that the repairs could not wait. Later on my son was able to call the house and speak to the owner of the company, who was doing the work along with other workers. The owner promised that he gave us the best possible price and that no other company would work with us the way he would. He was assured that the repairs were necessary as well. During the weekend after having more time to truly research and ask about the company, the damages and the repair costs we found that the repairs were were overpriced and that this company has had issues like this in the past. I even found a report done by abc about this company taking advantage of costumers by convincing them to get urgent repairs on the spot that were much more expensive than they should have been. ************************************************************************ We are still waiting for them to come and finish the work they started which we were told would be completed within a day. Today is Monday June ****, 2013
Desired Settlement: We are not trying to scheme money out of anyone. All we want is to pay a fair and compatible price (based on other company estimates), receive an equitable refund, and to receive a guarantee that the work will be completed and done the right way. We do not want to be dealing with similar repairs for quite some time. This is the same chimney that worked perfectly well after super storm Sandy and winter storm Nemo and yet could not survive a simple cleaning.
