Complaint Detail(s)

10/8/2014 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: We started a pool project with this company in April 2014. It was supposed to be 6-8 week process with a completion date of late June or first of July. We are on the 16th week of construction. The pool is not finished. The company will not return phone calls. It has been 4 1/2 weeks since anyone has been out to do anything. I found out today that the company has no more money, will not be finishing the pool and has not paid its subcontractors for the work that has been done on our pool even though we have paid the pool company. We have the pool company $59,750 thus far of $65,000 pool. The enclosure company is due $11,080. I am not sure the amount the paver company is owed because they would not disclose that to us, but they have not been paid either. We have paid for the natural stone, but do not have it. It supposedly has been paid for by the pool company, but again is not in our possession.

Desired Settlement: We would like to have the money back that we already paid for the above mentioned subcontractors so that we do not have to pay them twice, or at best we would like those subcontractors to be paid directly from money retrieved so that we don't owe them. We would like the stone that has been ordered and paid for at no additional cost.

Additional Notes

Complaint: **** Clift, owner of Clift and Co. Pools, has informed my family that he is unable to finish the pool that we paid him to build. He took over $32,000 from us almost 3 months ago. He started the construction of our pool, but the construction has stopped and his company has made no progress in over a month. He stopped returning our phone calls and has not visited the jobsite in 6 weeks. Before we signed a contract with him he visited my home, met my wife and my children, took our money, and now is "unable" to finish. We found out through our own research that he has other families in Jacksonville in the same situation. He refuses to give us any answers as to why he can't finish our pool. We have asked him to return our money so that we can move forward with another contractor, but he refuses. He is a great salesman and HAD a good reputation in this town - please BEWARE because he is a fraud! I hope to spare other families the heartbreak and aggravation of doing business with someone like **** Clift.

Desired Settlement: Give us back the money that you took from us. $32,000.

Additional Notes

Complaint: Clift and Co. was contracted to redo our pool and pool deck. Aside from the nuisance of having sand leaking into our pool, our deck is collapsing on one side. This is also causing water pipes underneath the deck to break. We have the expense of getting someone here to fix the pipes over and over, not to mention our water bills have increased. Eric Clift has not addressed any of these issues. He was paid promptly and I have to assume this is why he feels no need to address our problem. In addition, his website states that he is a member of the BBB, which he is not.

Desired Settlement: Honor his promise for a quality pool and deck. Fix this horrible, shoddy job. Also take the BBB membership off his website
