Springfield, MO 65802

To Whom It May Concern:


I would like to register a complaint concerning this business establishment.

Since 2011, I have been a resident of Springfield and have had much work done on and around my home. This involved many companies and their employees. I am not a grouch and have had the best of relationships with all of them.

On August 2, 2013, I called and asked for an estimate with Dale's Roofing, Inc. for new guttering on my house. ***** *******, an employee of Dale's responded to this request and gave me a written estimate for the work. He did say it might be 3 to 4 weeks before the work could be done. I said that was fine.

August, September, and beyond October passed and nothing was done to the gutters/ Between August 2 and December 16, I called twice and talked with two different gentlemen at Dale's Roofing and told them of my (their) dilemma and they said they would take care of it right away.

It is not December 16 and nothing has been done, not even a phone call from this establishment. I realize this is Christmastime and it's not the time to be unkind and malicious; however, I sincerely believe that after five (5) months of "leading me on" and doing nothing, this company must be declared unreliable and untrustworthy. Additionally, this delay has now caused snow and ice to be packed and accumulate in the gutters which is detrimental to my roof. I called them today and alerted them that I was sending a negative letter to the BBB concerning their despicable conduct.


Business Response
12/16/2013 **** ****** went by Mrs. ********'s house after her calling our office. He wanted to speak with her and apologize for her wait. Our schedule varies due to weather and work load. At the time when Mrs. ******** signed the contract we were scheduling out several weeks. We try to give a general time frame nothing specific because it can change. We are still completing work that was sold in August and September, due to weather and the number of jobs to be completed. We have a reputation for good work, we take our time to make sure jobs are completed correctly. So during high volume times we do get behind.
12/17/2013 **** met with Mrs. ******** and spoke with her that we are not "leading you on" we are behind on our work load. She told him she appreciated he took the time to come to her and speak with her she said there was a death in the family and would like some time to think about the job. He told her just to let him know at her convenience. He wanted to make sure she knew that her job was important too.
12/30/2013 That is when **** was notified of this complaint. He was addressing her concern before he was even notified of the BBB Complaint.
12/19/2013 Mrs. ******** contacted our office, she said she did want the work done but would like to wait a while.
01/14/2014 **** met with Mrs. ******** today, and she would like to cancel the job for now. She told him she was not unhappy just not ready to have the work completed now.

Final Consumer Response

**** ********: Part of this response is correct and part is not altogether correct. Yes, **** ****** did come to my house and apologized. I accepted his apology and told him I was very appreciative of his attempt to make the situation right. However, I can't imagine a company promising to do a job in August and totally ignoring the customer until December with several phone calls from me to the company between those times (5 months). Yes, I know that weather and a variety of other things can delay promised dates to delay the work but, again, 5 months without a single phone call to let us know what or when to expect some action, is simply unacceptable. In fact, it is rude.

When **** ****** came to my house, he apologized and I asked why I had had no phone call or any sort of communication from them since August, he said, "I had fallen in the cracks" - not the weather or any other cause was

mentioned as his reason for ignoring me. This is the part he left out. He then wanted to know when they could come out to do the work. I told him I would think about it and let him know the next day. As promised, I called his office the next day and told the young lady I preferred to wait to have the work done.

Yes, we had a death in the family in November and I was not ready to make any further decisions at the time he arrived at my home. After discussing this with relatives and friends, I made the decision to make arrangements with another company to do the work. Now, this is rather ironic that after I had been ignored by ****'s company, I would care enough about ****'s feelings to inform him the second time he came by my home that I had decided to wait to have the work done at a later time, instead of informing him I had hired another company.

I truly regret this has happened. Additionally, this is the very first time I have EVER written a letter to the BBB; however, having moved here from another area of the country two years ago, I have had an enormous amount of work done in my home and yards, and this has involved well over 20 workmen from all areas and I must say I have been very pleased with all of them with the exception of ****'s Roofing. I feel certain they (****'s Roofing) regrets this also and although I hold no ill feelings toward them, I just wanted the work done and by a company I could actually rely on in order to move on to other repairs that needed to be done.

Mary E. ********

Final Business Response
We do understand why Mrs. ******** feels frustrated and feels her job was ignored. And there is no doubt she should have been notified of the current work load and scheduling at ****'s. Even though the gutter repair was a small job for us, it was never are intentions to ignore Mrs. ********.

**** did recognize a problem when Mrs. ******** called on December 16 and this is before we were notified of the BBB complaint. At that time he went to her house to visit with her. He apologized for the issue and wanted Mrs. ******** to know that we had made a mistake and he would see to it that the job was completed in a professional manner.

We hope that Mrs. ******** understands that ****'s cares about every customer rather it be a large or small job.
