Additional Notes

Complaint: I was solicited by this company on the phone to come give me an estimate for painting the exterior of my home. When I told him I was interested, he began asking questions as to whether I was the sole owner of the home, was I married and, if I was, they needed my husband home for the estimate. When I asked why, he said that it was required to maintain their triple A rating with the BBB. The solicitor kept pressing me even when I told him this was getting a bit more than uncomfortable with the conversation He couldn't give me a good reason why my spouse needed to be on the premises, they just had to know that he was home. While my house is alarmed and I have 2 big dogs at home, it leaves me a bit unnerved that these people badgered me the way they did. When asked where they got my name and phone number, they said from the Haynes Directory from City Hall. I found no such listing on the Internet. This company also has bad ratings on Google and Yelp. I resented how this call was handled on their end and what I felt was inappropriate probing as to when my husband was home, though he didn't need to be present. He did not respect that I am on the government's Do Not Call List.

Desired Settlement: This company should respect the do not call list and learn to take NO for an answer. They need to never call me again.

Business Response: We are very sorry that this customer felt threatened of uncomfortable because of the questions  asked by my Solicitor. This is of course not our intent.  We have found it to be the rule that all property owners should be fully aware of all the option on any home improvement to make an informed decision and we also feel it is our responsibility to make sure that happens properly. Due to this fact, we request that all property owners be present for all appointments when possible. We do not charge for our initial informational visit because our product line, including some of our paint and coating lines have many options. Therefore, VDI never sends out a Professional Representative to a customers home without an appointment. We do everything possible to conform to our customer's schedules including working evenings and weekends. We have been conducting this process for over 30 years and found it to be the best for all parties concerned. We understand that this is not always possible for all homeowners, so if a homeowner cannot or is unwilling to conform to this policy, we respectfully invite them to meet us at our show room to pick up any and all the information they may need.

We get all of our phone lists supplied by ****** and then scrubbed by an outside source against the federal DO NOT CALL LIST. I am sorry that this customer has never heard of the ****** phone list company.  If someone does slip through, we place them on our list and then scrub it out. We believe we are abiding by all the current DO NOT CALL procedures.    

Thank you for the opportunity to respond to this issue.
