Additional Notes

Complaint: My husband and I unfortunately hired Jose's Landscaping to install a flagstone patio and stone wall in our new home last September. The job was completed on October 1, 2013 at **** ****** ****** ** ****.The flagstones are loose and wobble. The loose flagstones are dangerous and are a tripping hazard now. Additionally, the sand has just disappeared between the stones leaving empty gaps between the stones. The mortar has cracked out and fallen out.We paid over $8500 for this project and *** tells us he will not fix the defective installation. *** has not returned our numerous call and text messages except one to say he will not fix this defective installation. We were scammed as 2 other landscapers will attest to. One said he could remove the sand and put a sanded epoxy to somewhat seal the stones together and keep them from wobbling and falling out, however, the epoxy will also crack out with time. This would cost $500. The other landscaper said he was familiar with another flagstone patio done my Jose's that had the exact same problem. He said the proper installation should have required the flagstone to be laid into wet concrete and the only way to fix this correctly is to tear it all out and start over for approximately $9000. guarantee. There were other issues with this crew in regards to improper clean up and sand damaged our lawn. *** and his crew were very rude and sloppy workers leaving their garbage and cigarette butts everywhere. *** also kicked in my front door when he thought I wasn't home one day. We cannot afford to have this project removed and redone correctly. We feel totally cheated by this man and his company. I have only asked to have it repaired properly and for *** to stand behind his guarantee that we would be taken care of and be happy. This whole experience has caused us great stress and worry over trusting a company to do what they say they will do.

Desired Settlement: We want the old sand and cracked out mortar removed and the sanded epoxy or grout installed. IIn addition, we would require a worker to respect my time and property and to not cause any further damage to my property as they are working on it.

Business Response: I want to first start off by saying I did not kick the customers door in. I'm sure if that works have happened there would have been visible damage I would have had to fix. As far as the flagstone patio is concerned when I went out to bid the project I suggested concrete because of the expanding soil around the foundation of new homes. I took the proper steps while constructing the patio such as excavating existing dirt and bringing in roadbase and compact it. Also built a concrete footer around patio retaining wall to prevent Any movements from wall. As far as the joints in between the flagstone we used sans in between. I have done many patios this way and only offer polymeric sand when customer us interested. We do not warranty movement of flagstone when it's set on top of aggregate since we can't control movement of sharing of the ground. However I am willing to go out one time at no cost to the customer and adjust any pieces that have moved and install polymeric sand in joints like she would like. There is no guarantee stone will not move again since it's not set in concrete so this would be a one time repair. I believe the polymeric sand will bond the pieces together thus creating less movement.

Consumer Response: We need to be clear on the product and process for correcting our flagstone issue. We have attached the link regarding the polmeric sand to make sure we are talking about the same product and application process that you are. Polymeric SandPolymeric SandPolymeric Sand; What It Is and How To Use It Polymeric sand is a granular material placed between the joints or seams in brick pavers or stone in patios...

Please confirm in writing that you are agreeing to remove the old sand from the grout areas in between all the stone and repair the edge stones that are loose due to cracked mortar and replace with the polymeric sand application as detailed in the link above, and that you also agree to bear the expense.

We hope you agree since this appears to be a standard process for this type of stone application. We have several neighbors who have had this done by their installers and it seems to work nicely.

Business Response: I agree to meet the requirements the homeowner is asking for. Please let me know what are the next steps to resolve the issue
