Better Business Bureau Customer Review

        "Stay away from this company. After waiting over a month to get my roof done i decided to get a refund, but i wasn't told there was a $2500 "consulting" fee. Even then, it took them 3 months to send me my refund and during that time i emailed twice and called twice asking for it. Each time they told me the person who does it is not in and won't be in until tommorrow and they never called or emailed me back. Worst company with the worst customer service i have ever had to deal with. [continued below]....
..... They are storm chasers, stay away!"

Response to David H

AUTHOR: Trish Summers - (United States of America)

This is in response to Mr. David H's complaint. I spoke and corresponded with Mr. H on several occasions. First of all, as a matter of doing business with integrity, we released Mr. H from his contract with us and never performed work due to the financial hardship it would have imposed on him. During my numerous conversations with him and documented evidence that he was filing for bankruptcy, I did not feel it was in his best interest or my company's best interest to move forward with the contract. His money was refunded and his check has been cashed. Since his refund was sent back to him, he subsequently asked us to move forward with the work because he felt his financial situation would get better. While I hope his financial affairs get better, I declined the invitation for my company to enter into another contract with him based on many factors, some of which I do not feel I should disclose.

I apologized to Mr. H for several things. There were some things we could have done better as a company. Unfortunately there were some actions taken by one of my employees that I did not agree with, but have since apologized to Mr. H and subsequently the employee is no longer with us and is very disgruntled. Regardless, I took full responsibility and hopefully Mr. H will be so kind as to accept my apologies.

We are a professional organization. We are a veteran and women owned company and perhaps a little different from other companies in our ownership. We just completed multi-million dollar projects on the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, our corporate homebase. It started out as one project, but because of our committment to workmanship and integrity, we were awarded several more projects since the initial award. In Septemeber 2011, we also completed a project for the flagship research facility for the United States Department of Agriculture in Peoria, Illinois. All federal projects require bonding and due to our SBA 8(a) status, background checks and financial solvency have also been checked. It will be up to our consumers to weed through some of the fabrications mentioned in this complaint.

Our BBB status is being updated which is a normal occurrence upon renewal. Our status has never been lower than an A rating. Mistakes sometimes happen and we make every effort to resolve them fairly and quickly.

If you are considering doing business with us, please feel free to call our corporate office at 404-688-9590. You can see for yourself in what manner my staff answers the phones, but I can assure you they are always professional and courteous.

As always, the public is invited to visit us at www.AdvantageBuildingContractors.com. To Mr. H, I am sorry you felt it was necessary to post this complaint. I know you are working through very tough times and sincerely hope it will get better for you.
