Complaint: Dear BBB Staff-- My name is *** *. *******, ***** *********** ***** ******* ********* ** *****. Home phone: ###-###-####; cell phone: ###-###-####. E-mail address: Risquith@verizon.net My complaint is against the American Decorating Center ADC), ** ******* **** ****** ********, VA *****; Tel: **** ********; Fax: ###-###-####. E-mail: ****************** **. **** ***** is the general manager and co-owner. My complaint involves ADC's failure to provide kitchen flooring of the same appearance as that shown to me at their store. Based on the sample shown me, on March 5, 2013, for $4,960.86, I purchased "QU Cork: Carina" for our kitchen, laundry room, and closet. I paid by check. When the flooring was being installed, I noticed that some of the tiles were of a lighter shade than that of the sample shown me in the store. I told the installer that I had no problem with him using the lighter shade tiles for the laundry room. But I wanted a uniform shade in the kitchen. I did say that if he had enough of both shades for a complete checkerboard design, I was OK with that. But instead he went ahead and installed the lighter shade tiles in the kitchen randomly. By doing so, the installer working for ADC has made our selling the house difficult and reduced its value. When initially shown the flooring sample and the making the purchase, I was not told that the manufacturer could not provide the tiles in uniform shades. At my request, **** *****' sister ****, who I think is the other co-owner, and a woman representing the floor installation company, came to see the kitchen flooring. **** agreed with me and said that she was going to contact the manufacturer to get the needed tiles of the same shade that I purchased. When I was later told that the manufacturer could not do this, I said that I wanted a replacement flooring of uniform appearance. **** said that in order to do this, I would have to pay $1,000, which I refuse to pay. Since then I've been getting the run-around to the point that they no longer answer when I call. I have purchased flooring from ADC for many years and have always been satisfied. In fact, I have referred many friends to **** *****. Therefore, I was shocked and disappointed at **. *****' attitude and failure to provide good quality service this time. *** *. *******
Desired Settlement: What I want is for ADC to remove the cork flooring that they had installed and replace it with flooring of equal quality and value, subject to my selection, at no additional cost to me.
Dear ** ***** ******
