Complaint: In the beginning of August 2013, I hired Laramie Valley Contracting to repair a number of roof leaks at *** ********* ***** ******** **. It is now October 24, 2013, the repairs have not been completed and this company has been an absolute nightmare to work with. When hired in August, the company estimated it would cost $350 for all of the repairs and I instructed them to complete the repairs and call me to update me on the progress. Some weeks go by and I never heard back so I called in to check on the progress and the office help could find no record of the job. It took two days for them to figure out what job I was referring to, and then they informed me that the repairs were complete and sent me a bill for $350 the bill was not itemized at all. The next day the man residing at *** ********* ***** informed me that the roof was still leaking. Laramie Valley Contracting went back to continue the repairs, but did not successfully stop all of the leaks. On September 23, 2013, Laramie Valley Contracting said that the final repair would cost more than the original estimate, to which I indicated that I wanted them to adjust the estimate and let me know what the additional cost would be and to finalize the repairs immediately. Nothing has been done by Laramie Valley Contracting since. When I called the company in the middle of October 2013, I was infuriated that they had done nothing more to complete the repairs and received very nasty treatment from the unbelievably rude and inappropriate receptionist who claimed that they would need the $350 dollars BEFORE they finished the repairs. Why would I prepay before the repairs were complete? She also said that they dont guarantee anyone elses work which I am not sure what they are supposed to mean since I am only asking them to guarantee their own work on these repairs. Does that mean the company doesnt do repairs on roofs that their company did not originally build? If so, why wasnt I informed of that during the original estimate process? After listening to the overly impolite receptionist talk over me, reply flippantly, and raise her voice at me I demanded to talk to a manager or the owner and she informed me he was busy and would call me back. He did not call me. I called in again a couple of days later and told the receptionist that if the owner did not call me back I would file a claim with the BBB. That was a week ago and I have still not heard from a manager or owner. It is obvious to me that this company does not care about the quality of work they do or care about the customers they have. I certainly wish I would have known this before hiring Laramie Valley Contracting to repair this simple project as now I have lost time and money and need to find someone to fix the roof before winter sets in.
Desired Settlement: This situation will resolve when Laramie Valley Contracting finishes the job I hired them to do in August. I want an itemized and adjusted estimate for the remaining repairs, in addition to an itemized summary of the accumulated charges to date. I want the roof repairs to be completed immediately at *** ********* *****!!!! I wish to have no further contact with the receptionist and demand that only a manager or owner speak to me from this point forward.

Reply to Laramie Valley Contracting:
If the company who originally installed the roof were available, there would be no need for me to have contacted your incompetent company. With that said, the men who built that roof are all on military deployment to the Middle East and are therefore unavailable.
I did not ask for any “favors” in this situation, I clearly stated multiple times that the job would be paid for in full once all the repairs that Laramie Valley Contracting agreed to conduct were successfully completed. I have already outlined that this dispute will only resolve with Laramie Valley Contracting finishing the job that they were hired to do. Since it is evident that Laramie Valley Contracting is not willing to complete the job, this issue will remain unresolved.Regards,
