My wood floor laid by All About Hardwoods showed buckling at base of pedestal sink indicating a plumbing leak. I emailed ***** and he immediately responded saying they did not have to remove the sink so did not believe they were responsible for the leak but said to call him and he would come out and look at the damage. I called both his mobile and business number as well as sending another email but got no response from him. I sent him another email saying if I did not hear from him by the end of the week, I would have to make a BBB complaint. Again he sent an email response reiterating his previous email. I asked to set up an appointment for the next week but again, I have received no response. Since no one but he and his assistant have touched the pedestal sink, I believe they do have a responsibility for assisting me in repairing the leak.

Desired Settlement
Pay for a plumber to come out and repair leak, or come out to house and assess the condition of the floor and cause of leak.

Business Response
Contact Name and Title: **** ******
Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX
Contact Email: *****************
The work was completed by my company April 13th, 2013. There would be no reason for a water leak in association with the hardwood floor work. In addition the leak seemed to have been discovered June 13th as indicated in her email. An ongoing water incident from April to June would have inspired wide spread damage. The water damage is an incident of another source that I am not responsible for. I would have been happy to come by to make repairs to the floors however this is not a complimentary service and can not be completed until the source of the leak is addressed, repaired and has time to dry. I do not have confirmation that those requirements have been met. It would be most appropriate for *** ***** to meet with her contractor that was working at the house, a plumbing company or her homeowners insurance before having me out to finalize the repairs. I am not the first person to call in this water event - I can not make repairs without the above mentioned instructions completed.

Final Consumer Response
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
There is no evidence that the installation did not cause the leak. It was only after the water was left to run for several minutes that the water was seen above the floor. Damage could only be seen at closer inspection but obvious that the leak had been going on for a while. Certainly it could have been since the installation It is a secondary bath and not used daily. I am extremely pleased with the work that this company provided. The floor is beautiful. And I did consult with the contractor and it was his opinion that the leak was the result of the installation. He advised me to not get a plumber until company had a chance to look at it.
