Additional Notes

Complaint: F/X Repair remodeled our upstairs master bath and installed a new shower bath combo unit.A year later we had a major leak coming from the drain of the new shower bath.It filled the ceiling ofour downstairs bath with water.Tom an employee from F/X came by and said he would do the drywall on the downstairs bath and paint it.He completed the drywall and said he would come back and "paint the bathroom".When someone says they are going to paint the bathroom and yet knows they are going to do a partial paint job they usually say something.After the paint was completed I came home to find a halfway painted bath.I called Tom and he was adament about not coming back to finish.The owner Bob A**** felt the same way.This raised my curiosity.Iwrote and asked if Tom has a plumbers licence,and if my drain was ever inspected prior to finishing thejob.He has never answered this question.

Desired Settlement: Complete the paint job.

Business Response:

We completed a full master bath remodel in June 2014 (or about)......on 12 May 2015, they called about a leak.....our Lead
was on site 13 May and found they had already had a plumber arranged to repair the leak and replace the
fiberglass tub.   The ******* bought the tub directly for the remodel.    Our experience is that the style fiberglass
tub they bought often cracks and is the cause of the leak as the slope drives the leak to the drain pipe....and, during
this scope on 13 May we were not in a position to determine the exact cause of the leak or a combination.

As the tub was being replaced due to the crack....seems that most likely this was the cause if not at minimum a
contribution.    We did not debate........just arranged to repair the drywall damage below the master in the bath.
The agreed we should wait till all the replacement is completed and some time to make sure no further leaking.
We made these arrangements at no cost even though we do not warrant products which the owners purchase
themselves.    We asked the ****** to put out the paint we used last year so we could re use.

We returned and repaired the drywall on 16 July.     During the next weeks, we called and emailed numerous times
to complete the painting.   When we showed to complete the painting after the finally returned our calls and email,
we found that they had changed to a much different color so we completed the two walls damaged and completed
the full section repainting of one wall and the ceiling.  Normally, a spot
touch up works very effectively when the original painting is less than 2 years old.

Our Lead did tell them we were going to paint the repair.....we never indicated that we were going to repaint the full
bathroom especially in that the tub was the cause of the leak in some portion or maybe the sole leak !!!   The fact is
we do not know and if just the tub was the cause this would not have been a warrant for us.

On his comment on the plumbing, there was not change in the drain or supply lines to replace the tub, just
re connections.    So, our understanding is that this does not require a plumber's lic.   Our contract does
stimulate this variable and also has the add if the customer or homeowner wants this only to be done
with a Permit layout.  

So, in my opinion.....we did a great service beyond the call of duty, so to speak....
           a.  we backed our work for free even though is likely their purchased material caused the leak
                   and did not debate in even a hint,  of our backing regardless without charge.
           b.  we used the different color or paint without charging even though this took more time
                          than using the same color.

Appreciate your suggestion and feedback on our description.
