Gorgeous Exterior Modifications Complaint - Consumer Beware! Senior Scam

Review by BKD on 2011-03-29
CONNELLSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA -- [snip - no names please] has not returned my phone calls and has ceased all contact as of October. My kitchen is missing half of its cabinets and counter top, the plumbing is not to code (per housing inspector), the floor is lifting.

I do not have means to pay another contractor to re-do the job correctly. I got a quote of $13,000 from another contractor who said he must redo the work that has been done so far.

The cabinets that have been installed are not plumb and the company that manufactured them discontinued this line, therefore I need to replace the existing ones.

Again, he will not return my calls and I feel that I was targeted because I am a senior citizen.

Honestly, I don't think your age has anything to do with it. This sounds like a terrible company, and I'm sorry they put you in this predicament. Is it possible they went out of business?

Did you pay for all the work up front? If so, contact your local police department and fill out a report. You can also try taking them to small claims court.

Venice- out of business or not, they need to either finish the work they were paid for, or refund the OPs money. I do agree that this probably didn't have anything to do with his/her age.

I realize that, Kurizumaru. But the OP will have to put some time and effort into getting any action or reimbursement. I was just suggesting that it may the reason there has been no contact since October, something the OP might not have considered.
