Additional Notes

Complaint: Repair of gas line and rizer started on 1/20/2014 and completed on 1/28/2014. In order for these repairs to be done my yard had to be dug up from the street to the porch area of my home. After the work was completed the dirt was to be backfilled in. As of 1/28/2014 this still has not been completed by Mark Allen Plumbing. Since 1/28/2014 there have been numerous mild dry days for this to be backfilled in. I have spoken to this company on numerous occasions and I just keep getting the run around "we will have someone call you back" I never receive a call back. I have been told the weather is too cold and or wet that's why it cannot be backfilled in. This has left my yard in complete disarray and an eyesore. Also leaving the gas line completely exposed by the street and underneath my porch which can cause a hazard at anytime. This company has no intention on finishing the job they have started which is very unprofessional at this point. When I call to ask about the work being finished the receptionist acts as though I'm being unreasonable and she becomes very annoyed about the work being completed.

Desired Settlement: I either would like a partial refund so I can hire someone to complete the work of backfilling this dirt in or have this company Mark Allen Plumbing complete the job they have started.

Business Response:  Before receiving this letter, we had a crew go out to **** ********** ****** and

backfill the ditch. We are very sorry but the weather conditions required us to delay this

unfortunately We dug and replaced the gas line in below zero weather to restore gas

service and found this to be the first opportunity for us to be able to properly backfill the

ditch. The men that were there spoke with ****** and she said she was satisfied with

the work done on April 3, 2014.


**** *******

Consumer Response: I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. 

BBB's Final Determination: Consumer accepted resolution offered by the business.
