Additional Notes

Complaint: This was installed about a year ago. I contacted the company and let them know about issues with the quality. They assured me they would come out and fix it last fall. They never showed so I followed up with them again this spring and continued to say they would come resolve the issues. Promising dates and then pushing the dates back due to weather etc. They still have not come out to correct a bad mix of concrete they installed. It is crumbling and degrading. At least half of what was installed will have to be repaired (most likely replaces 100%)

Desired Settlement: I would just like what they promised and that is to come back and correct the defective concrete. Or if they feel they no longer would like to work with be I feel at least a 70% refund so I can hire someone else to remove the defective concrete and install replacement concrete.

Business Response: Tell us why here...this company has not been in business since 9/01/2014 and has filed bankruptcy since ... there fore all warranty are null sorry for any problems

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

I am rejecting this response because:  if this company was indeed bankrupt then why did the owner continue to respond via email even this spring multiple times saying they would resolve the issue.   Provide BK paperwork to support the claim.
