Additional Notes

Complaint: I entered into a contract with Hertz-A-Crete for a new concrete capping of the existing porch slab and replacement of the existing concrete walkway in front of my house. The work was completed and paid for in late June 2013. In September, I discovered two hairline cracks in the new 4 inch porch slab. I called Hertz-A-Crete and at different times both Brad H****** (Estimator) and Gordie H******* (Operations Manager) stopped to inspect the hairline cracks. Both indicated that Hertz-A-Crete would come back and repair the two hairline cracks. They never came to repair the cracks. I called Hertz-A-Crete numerous times and they eventually said it was too cold to make the repairs and they would fix the hairline cracks in Spring 2014. They never contacted me in the spring and beginning in May 2014 through July 2014 , I called numerous times and left voice mail messages that were never returned. I just want the hairline cracks to be repaired as they had promised.

Desired Settlement: I would like the hairline cracks repaired as Hertz-A-Crete committed to do at no cost to me.

Business Response: Dear ****** ******, We are writing to inform you that we are aware of the complaint #******** and although we do not guarantee capped concrete slabs against cracking we are committed to working with our customer to repair and rectify the problem. Thank You

Consumer Response: [A default letter is provided here which indicates your acceptance of the business's response.  If you wish, you may update it before sending it.]

Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. 

All I want is Hertz-A-Crete to contact me to make arrangements to fix the cracks as they had promised to do over one year ago. Thank you. **** ***** *********
