Additional Notes

Complaint: Carlson's Concrete put in a new driveway for me this summer. I didn't notice a problem with my sprinkler system as a result of their work because I water at night. A family member noticed the grass was turning brown in Zone 5, in the backyard.Carlson's has said they won't pay for sprinkler problems that are caused by their work unless I call them to repair it. Because I didn't immediately associate the sprinkler problem with them, I called my own sprinkler expert.We found the conduit under the driveway had never been installed correctly. The conduit itself was much too narrow to contain all the wires. The wires to Zone 5 had not been spliced together and lay outside the conduit in the dirt. All this took place under the new driveway.My own sprinkler man bought the correct sized conduit and made the repair.I think Carlson's should pay my sprinkler expert for his work. From the appearance of the problem it seems their own worker didn't know how to do the job. If it was an honest mistake on his part, he wouldn't know how to correct it either.

Desired Settlement: If Carlson's Custom Concrete will pay the bill from my sprinkler expert, I will be satisfied. The driveway is otherwise very nice.

Business Response: Customer contacted us directly: Mike Carlson of Carlson's Concrete phoned me today to apologize and discuss with me the details of my complaint.  We ended up agreeing on a settlement regarding the payment of my sprinkler man's bill.  I have no complaint and hold high regard for this honorable busnessman.
