Erie Construction Complaint - Erie has pushy scam salesmen
A young guy knocked on my door and asked if I was interested in a quote for a new roof. I told him no and he gave me a sob story about he was going to lose his job if he didn't book appointments and I could just book and tell them no at the door and they would not come in. Feeling sorry for the guy I did. The next day a guy came and I told him I wasn't interested. He said he already looked at the roof and could give me an estimate in under 30 min. I said ok to the estimate. He came in looked and my attic and said I didn't need a roof (after he ust told me I did from the outside) but I needed insulation. Their "great product was over ten times more expensive than Home Depot sells a comparable (same energy dept rated) product for. The salesmen was pushy and would not leave. I told him I wasn't interested in the insulation. He kept sitting down after I told him many times I wasn't interested. Their price of $5100 came down to $2900 when I kept telling him no. I finally told him I had to leave and he got real nasty with me. He was telling me I wasted his time and money for coming out. I told him about the door to door guy and he told me I was lying. After almost two hours of telling me how nce my house was and telling me he liked different things around my house he began telling me that my improvements were cheap and I wasted my money. I told him I would never buy anything thing from him and demanded that he leave. As he walked out the door he continued to insult me and my home and called me a cheap skate because I wouldn't buy his overpriced insulation. This company makes me sick. I read the reviews the day after he left and if you look around the internet all you find is upset customers. The only place you find a good review is on Erie's website, which they tell you they will give you $250 off if you write 2 testimonials. 1 for them and 1 for the dept of energy. Stay away from them and don't give in to their pushy tactics. Don't even let them in!
