Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: On OCT. 21,2013 I purchased asphalt paving for in front of my garages and part of my driveway. Within 2 weeks of the pavement being installed, vegetation began growing up through the pavement in 33 different places.The proposal that Roth's salesman, ****** *******, had given me specifically stated that "vegetation control" would be applied. When I paid Mr. ******* on Oct. 21,2013, I mentioned to him that I had not seen his crew apply any vegetation control. He stated that the vegetation control was in the asphalt. I found that difficult to believe, but did not challenge the issue with Mr********.After noticing the 33 places where vegetation appeared, I called Mr. ******* in early November, 2013. He said that they would take care of the problems in the spring of 2014.When Roth's advertisements began to appear in the ****** paper in the spring of 2014 I called Roth and reminded them of their promise to correct the problems. They again promised to take care of the problems. Incidentally, in the spring of 2014, 6 new areas of vegetation appeared in the pavement.Through out the spring/summer/fall, I called Mr. ******* about every 2 weeks. He continued to say they would fix the problems sometime in the next 2 weeks. Finally in early Nov. 2014, realizing that the paving season was rapidly coming to a close, I called Roth's main number in *** ******* I spoke to someone, who did not identify himself, but was apparently a supervisor or owner. After explaining my situation to him, he stated that he had a crew in ********* just 5 miles from me. He said he would call that crew and find out if they could come fix my problems after they finished the other job. I asked him to call me one way or another. He agreed to do so. I never heard back from him. When I tried to call Roth's *** ****** number again, there was no answer. To date, Feb. 3,2015, I have not heard from Roth. Product_Or_Service: asphalt paving
Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Replacement The vegetation growth has opened pathways for water to get beneath the asphalt where it will freeze in the winter and break up the asphalt. The areas where the vegetation has broken through the asphalt should be replaced.
This letter is in response to the complaint filed by Mr. **** ******. We will resume paving and address Mr. ******'s complaint in late April or early May, weather permitting. Our intention is to satisfy Mr. ******'s complaint. We will contact him at that time.
I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.

Complaint: I am an attorney representing ***** *** ******* ***** of ********** **. J R Roth Paving installed their asphalt driveway. Following installation, problems began to develop in a couple of areas and spread to other surrounding areas. My clients contacted the contractor and were advised that the problem would be resolved by the end of 2013. In November, 2013, after numerous efforts to contact the contractor and schedule the repairs proved unsuccessful, they contacted me. I wrote several letters indicating clearly that my clients wanted repairs made to their driveway and pointed out that those repairs should include not only the original areas, but also the adjacent areas affected by them. I have received no response. I reiterate that I my clients just want what was promised, repairs made to their driveway.
Desired Settlement: My clients would like to schedule a date certain when their driveway might be fully repaired and thereafter have the repairs to the initial problem areas and the other areas affected by them fixed.
I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.
I am an attorney and previously filed a complaint about this business on the website. My clients, ******* and ***** *****, wanted a date certain on which their driveway installation could be repaired. The business replied that the estimator had been sent and that the repairs would be made in May or June. My clients found that response satisfactory. Unfortunately, the business did not live up to that reply and no repairs have not been made as of yet. Again, they are asking that their driveway installation be repaired.
Business Response: I'm responding to the complaint filed by Attorney ***** ********* on behalf of his client Mr. and Mrs. ******* *****. First I would like to apologize to Mr. and Mrs. ***** for not addressing this problem sooner. My company will be out to repair this problem by September 12 or sooner. Certainly no later.
