Complaint Detail(s)

11/4/2014 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: Graber has failed to remedy quality issues with the construction of a small horse barn since April of 2014.The company left several items incomplete or ill fitted and the principle has repeatedly set appointments to make repairs and complete the job only to ignore the appointment without contact or notification.

Desired Settlement: I want the barn doors and all trim repaired to new condition, the rollers included in the purchased barn package properly installed. I want the large sliding door to be square with the building and seal along the entire building.

Business Response: BBB
I ****** ******* was notified yesterday for the first time of a problem with a customer's building built by one of my crews. The email info that the BBB has on file is for a person no longer on my payroll which is why i did not receive notice. I made contact with the customer yesterday 07/31/2014 and have made arrangements to repair her issue with the barn.

A large part of the problem of this issue was communication between the owner and my sales rep. The products we offered were refused by the customer (I don't believe she understood the proper application) and later requested by the customer which caused mass confusion between both parties and my sales did not do a good job of addressing other issues she had concerns about. I am making a sincere effort to amend this issue. 

I would like to speak with a BBB rep regarding this case and ask that all emails be sent to my email at ************************* or call my cell ************

****** ** *******

Consumer Response: Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:
I believe the file should remain open until the repairs are complete.  The owner met with me and agreed to repair issues with the trim, door hardware adjustments, and installation of door railing. He was, I believe sincere in his desire to rectify the situation and stated that he would order supplies and supervise the repairs. He agreed to communicate directly with me via email and telephone and
I look forward to resolving my barns issues.

Thank you Mr. ******* for you timely response in coming to see the building and for listening to my concerns. I agree that part of the
problem was a communication break down and I apologize for the part of that that I own. I do stand firmly on the fact that I only know what I know until I know more! I have never built a barn before.


******* ************

Consumer Response: Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:
The issues have NOT been resolved! Some effort was made by the builder, but the building remains dismantled with parts of the roof removed and I have had no contact from the owner since August 13. 

I insist that the TRIM work be repaired, the doors adjusted, TRIM track boards repaired, paint touch up on the north gable, slider bottom rails  and rail stops installed.

This has gone on far too long and  there is not even an unresolved complaint on the BBB site.

I have been waiting for SIX months to get this work done and while the primary seemed sincere,  I remain the owner of a barn with  shoddy workmanship and even worse customer service.

 The BBB service has provided me, the customer not one bit of  protection or resolution of this very expensive, frustrating, infuriating situation! I am angry, and dissatisfied.


******* ************

Business Response: Sincere efforts are being made to complete this project. We are waiting on parts that were on site and rejected by the owner ******** ************ and now she requests the same items which were rejected in the past. ******** also is requesting parts that are not standard parts and need to be manufactured. these parts Graber Building will not be held liable for. The only thing left for us to do is reinstall the ceiling, RE-INSTALL rejected parts, and touch-up a paint scratch. 

Consumer Response: Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:I believe this file should remain open until repaires are complete. Owner has promised to come work on the building today to resolve the remaining issues.
