Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: I bought a pellet stove over five (5) months ago, and it has yet to be installed correctly. 80mk /blhE3UOn I have had people out to "fix it" more than half a dozen times, and each time, they need to come back later. They have had to re-paint the stove 3 times since the $70 paint job I paid for entailed a can of spray paint and some novice craftsmanship. The owner of the company is the associate who originally measured my fireplace, and I was told by plenty of employees after, that therein lies the problem. I could have purchased a comparable stove from another retailer for half of the money I spent on this stove, but I had heard of a good reputation about this business. Maybe it is under new ownership, but I have had no success with getting what I paid for. It is as though, when I paid for the product/ service, they washed their hands of me. They now have their money and I'm out nearly $5000, with a stove that rattles when it is on, and looks like I installed it myself, being the amateur that I am.
Desired Settlement: I want them to come pick up my stove, and issue me a check for the money I am out, seeing as I have not been given what I paid for.
Business' Initial Response
BBB's Final Determination: After reviewing the position of all parties, BBB determined that the business made a reasonable offer to resolve the complaint. However the consumer did not accept the offer.
