Additional Notes

Complaint: Repairs to the residence were never completed by the owner of the business. There was a verbal agreement for the owner to come over and complete the repairs. Since house has been "finished" there are several issues are that are now coming up. Poor craftsmanship and quality of the work provided

Desired Settlement: Would like the repairs to be completed and the house to be finished.

Business Response: BBB spoke to business and the following was relayed: This job was bad right from the start. It was an insurance job. The homeowner wanted a new house built from insurance co. Insurance company said no and homeowner was unhappy about that decision. I have all the pictures from the insurance company. There is $12-14K dollars that was never paid that the insurance will not cover because there was prior damage before the tree came down. I was expecting to be paid by the owner. He says they do not have any money and the homeowner wants a letter signed to keep from paying the business. When final check was received, that is when they mentioned something about basement.

Consumer Response: I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and have determined that this does not resolve my complaint.  For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below. I am not asking for a new house. There were fixes that needed to be done from you that you promised after the project was "finished". Now as for the basement the ceiling that was replaced by your team was never finished being painted and now in the living the tape job that was done is all cracked and the paint is peeling off the walls. I'm not asking for much in this situation I just wanted to project done. I asked you to fix my home because someone had said you were good and you wanted to take it on. If you didn't want to deal with an insurance claim you should have denied it. I'm not asking for a new house or for you to even replace anything just want the house to be finished.  Regards, ***** ************
