Additional Notes

Complaint: About 10 days ago ***** ******, Pa Contractor #******, came to my wife's business after being seen at a neighbor's house and she asked for an estimate for the alley leading to our house to be paved, we are the sole users of the alley, not our propery. Verbal quote of $4,000.On July 17th he returned to ask if a decision had been made and asked to talk to me. I am still recovering from a broken leg, 5 Dec 2013, and have not been able to work. I told him that $4,000 was twice the amount I could pay, have been living on retirement and withdrawing IRA's. After some discussion, they had ordered 400 tons of asphalt for a parking lot job and had only used 300 tons, the rest was at the asphalt plant being kept HOT, needed to be used, and he then gave me a price of $4,200, my wife quickly reminded him of the $4,000 price given earlier, price now $4,000. Again I remined him that I could not pay that, started to walk back to the house, the price started coming down, finally he said $2,000. My wife and him shook hands on the deal, nothing written. Crew would come 10 A.M. 19 July.Friday 11 A.M. I called him, crew delayed on another job, now Monday the 22nd, his father-in-law ****** ********* PA #******, BBB Business Card, has measured the alley at 15' x 70', alley requires grading to make room for asphalt, his 12' paving machine may not fit well due to stone wall on one side of the alley, now price changes to $3,150, can not be done for less.I tell him that he might as well get into his truck because I can not pay that amount.After he leaves, my wife and I talk about this, that the asphalt must have been paid for in advance for 400 tons, just who can tell if that amount had been used, if so they are reselling the same material again and getting paid twice. Is this good ethical practices?My wife later calls ***** on his cell phone, he told her that due to no written estimate of $2,000, nothing could be done.

Desired Settlement: Do the job for $2,000 as previously agreed upon, hand shake.

Business Response: To.b.b.b 

July.29 /2013
This is ****** *********
The hole story is my sun-law
***** ****** gave a est.of 12×60
He said he never had a tap with 
Him.so he ask me if I would go by
Take my tap. And get the . size
And I did 70×15 and I gave him a price of $3.150
All the time I said  I. only work by 
Contract we give est. All time but no contact no job will be by me or *****.
p.s.let them call some other paver no work would be done by me or ***** all est. Were verbal
******* ********* 

Consumer Response:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and have determined that this does not resolve my complaint.  For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below.

***** was quite aware that the width was 15', we both mentioned that width several times.

From ******** response he did not mention that the asphalt was left over from another job. Was the left overs already paid for by the previous job, that is the impression both my wife and I got, that why the price was so low.

I doubt that we will get him to do the job anyway, due to his overall attitude.

Doubtful he could write a good contract anyway, from his spelling in his response.

Another contractor gave us a price of $2,350, and he is aware of the 15x70.

Again, I guess a hand shake is no good these days, especially among some people, I keep my work, even if it's verbal and most times it is.

Should have had ***** write it down, should have known his word was no good

Regards,

****** *************
