Additional Notes

Complaint: They installed the plumbing in our house that leaked. When we called to have them fix their work (we caught it immediately so it was the only damage besides afire alarm that was ruined) they refused to fix the leak for over a week. Finally they sent someone over who cut holes in the wall to fix their work. Before he cut any holes I asked him who was going to fix them and he said they would take care of them so we let the cut the holes. A week later we called because they hadn't fixed them and now they refuse to repair the damage their agent did to or house. The owner started going off on my wife about some crap that happened with the builder not paying something and told her that they aren't going to fix anything. This has been going on for over a month without resolution.

Desired Settlement: Fix the damage they did to or house.

Business Response:

In regards to the complaint filed by **** *******, **** ***** ** ** ** ********, ** *****. Mr ******* is not and has
not been a customer of B&R Plumbing. We entered into no contractual agreement with Mr ******* or his wife. He
purchased his home from a Bank and/or ******* ******** under conditions of a repossession. His warranty is through his
seller. B & R Plumbing went above and beyond by helping Mr ******* out, and repairing his leak to prevent further

Consumer Response:
Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because: they cut holes in my house when I owned it to fix their poor craftsmanship. They said they would fix the holes before they made their first cut and then changed their story after the damage was done. Just because they say I wasn't a customer doesn't mean they aren't responsible for damages they did to my home. The only response to this is to fix the damage they did to my wall,  nothing more nothing less.


**** *******

Business Response:

In regards to Mr. ******** Claim, B&R plumbing is not responsible for any repairs to the sheet rock. We did not
agree to fix the sheet rock. As discussed with Mr. and Mrs. ******* they would have to contact the ******** (*******) for
any repairs that need done.

Consumer Response:

Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because: the person who cut the holes in the wall specifically said they would take care of the holes. Their representative that they sent to our house, acting as their agent, said that they would repair any damages they made to my house. We asked if they would repair the damages before he made the first cut and our permission was given on the condition that it would be repaired. I can't go to a company that doesn't exist anymore, that didn't put any holes in my house and ask them to repair damages this company did.
