Building Depot Manufacturing Complaint - Deceptive advertising
GAFFNEY, SOUTH CAROLINA -- I purchased a 12'x24' storage building based on a this company's web site and a viewing of their display models at their facility. They claim in their ad "Quality construction and materials is their trademark" and the models on display are in-fact of a reasonable quality for this type of construction. At time of delivery, I did not have adequate time to closely inspect the building as I was threatened with "additional charges" for wait time. I was already paying an additional $100 delivery fee because I had to remove two small trees. I agreed to the $100 but was under stress and duress when I accepted the delivery. This building is shoddily constructed with lumber and materials that appear to have been retrieved from a trash pile, it resembles nothing in their ads or their models. Within a week the roofing plywood was warped and sagging. I paid $50 each for five (5) windows and three (3) of them are not even nailed to the framing properly, nor is framing even level or plumb. I had a verbal agreement with the owner to have it constructed with a specific size of siding due my HOA requirement. That didn't happen either. I did take my chances with HOA however they are not happy.
I have made numerous attempts with the owner to resolve the issues however he communicated only once via email that his company "does not provide any warranty and doesn't have to do anything". This building (sic) is so poorly constructed I consider it a safety hazard due to the way the roof is applied, I do not believe it will support any weight such as snow/sleet/ice etc.. I bought this building to store very expensive tools and lawn machines etc.. the owner is very quick to quote scripture however evidently he chooses to "hide" behind the bible rather than live by it.
Oh yes, as noted in their ad, they are a company that is "there after the sale" LOL ..... what a joke. Be forewarned; this is NOT an ethical, or honest company. I have over 30 photos of this building but could take many more examples it is so bad. I am currently working on allowing the photos to be viewed on-line at my AOL public albums. Please stay tuned, I refuse to be ripped off anymore. Retired and tired of all the BS !!!
