Complaint: Honestly, I don't know what to say about ***** and his business. I've done quite a bit of work on homes myself so I'm not completely dumbfounded by contractors/home services alike.I decided to list my home for sale and just wanted to do some refreshing in the bathroom. When I got started with an epoxy enamel on my bathtub, I realized the prior owner of my condo had already done a botched job so my dad layering more epoxy on epoxy causes this orange peel look. We tried to scrape it off and had most of it done but realized we were way behind my contract to sell schedule. I called around and couldn't find a contractor available immediately and I stumbled onto *****'s yelp business review. He picked up and just like a prior reviewer, was surprised he was willing to take the job just like that.He shows up and takes a look at my bathtub and that's when I realized I should have sent him running along. He looked completely bewildered and said he had never see anything like this. He grabs his tools from the truck and makes a few feeble attempts at scraping the epoxy. I told him I had been using acetone since it really is one of the only things that break up epoxy other than even more harmful chemicals. He continues to do it even though I politely and passively tells him I was going to call a contractor the next day. About 2 hours later, he charges me $200 and makes a remark that he would normally charge $700. I'm thinking, okay, yes, it sucks and it's not fun to scrape epoxy but its certainly not skilled labor, its just manual labor. Anyway, he stopped after 2 hours and said he would send one of his brother's guys out the next day for 15-16 dollars an hour to finish the work. I said okay. The next day, he tells my via text his labor guy bailed so he was going to come after his project. I asked him for a price and he didn't respond but he responded to everything else. I don't know if his guy actually bailed or he just saw an easy way to tack on another $200 - $300. At that point, I think his guilty conscience finally kicked in and he realized he was taking advantage of me. I had a contractor come that very next day and he said I should have never allowed a grout guy come in and tell me how it can be done. He told me that only licensed, bonded and insured all around contractors can advise on the best and most affordable solution. And yes, I went with that contractor and that $200 could have gone towards it since it wasn't much more. I want to say that he genuinely wanted to help but he also saw huge $$$ when he knew the job required no skill just manual labor. He knows the reason why I'm selling my property too. In a simple sentence, my life is literally depending on the proceeds of my sale and if he knew he couldn't fix the problem 15-20 minutes in, he should have told me and left. I would have gladly paid him for 15 minutes of work. I hope he sees this and is ashamed of himself for taking advantage of a sick person. Even if he meant well BUT knew he didn't have a clue as to what he was doing, the honest thing would have been to just admit it and not continue wasting his time and my money. I ended up having to pay him and then hire a contractor who did know how to fix it cheaper.Word of advice to those seeking home improvement, keep calling around and asking for quotes. Ask for pictures and expertise as to what they have done.
Desired Settlement: I wish I didn't let him stay but I did so I'm not going to discredit his work. However, it was not worth $200 and he should not have continued to do anything when he knew he had no idea what he was getting into.Requesting $75 dollar refund.
The lady called me saying she had an emergancy with her tubsurround, her place will be on the market in 3 days and she had epoxy haze all over it, I was at work in seattle at the time, i told her i would stop by after work around 6-7pm, I got to her place, walked in the bathroom and the tubsurround wall tiles were painted with an epoxy spray can, I told her i never see this before painted on the tile, but will give it a shot to remove it. she told me she had been using a paint thiner to remove it
