Additional Notes

Complaint: I called Pioneer Paving for a quote to patch and seal our driveway. I called them because of their rating with the BBB. I was told that someone would come by and give me a quote. A few days later I got a call from Pioneer Paving and he says, they are in the area and have left over asphalt from a job this morning and would like to see if it would be enough to patch my driveway. Everything was nice with the quote and the work they said they "would do". When they quoted me they said it was fresh asphalt, however when they came to the house to patch the driveway the asphalt looked like a rock, which had to be remelted. They assured me that the driveway would look nice and this is a normal procedure for patching driveways. I paid them the full amount of the service upfront and they were suppose to come back and finish filling the cracks and seal the driveway . I called him the next day telling him my concerns about his work and how I was unhappy with the asphalt used and how the patches looked unfinished. It took them multiple rescheduled times and 2 days of canceled appointment to show back up and complete the job less to satisfaction. They never fixed the patch work, they just put a seal coat over it. The patch work is sloppy and not level with the rest of the driveway. The work I was told that would be done was not done. I have had one story after another from the owner and the son of this company, not to mention the employee caused a scene in my front yard and rudely commented to my neighbors about their driveway. He said he would refund me the whole amount of this job since I was unhappy but he never followed through. This company has been nothing what I expected it to be. It has been one lie after another and I am very upset with the service I received.

Desired Settlement: I personally feel this whole experience was a scam and I would like for the company or the son of the company to refund us our money. We paid 625.00 for a service that looks horrible and now we have to pay for it to be redone correctly. I will willing pay for the seal coat (100.00 value) and would like to refunded the rest.

Business Response: After speaking with the business he did go out and look at the issues brought up in the complaint. At that point he took care of the issues at his cost.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

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

I spoke with the consumer and she stated that she did accept the BR but she wanted to add that she has to get the driveway sealed and it will cost $99 and she wants to be reimbursed for the $99.
