My home had suffered storm damage and Mr. Rowe of All Outdoors Construction was to replace my seamless siding, on my home and storage shed. He was also to replace window screens, aluminum patio cover, down spouts, and other misc repairs.

I paid Mr. Rowe more than half of the total amount due upfront. After a month of phone calls and persistence, he finally showed up to complete the siding. The siding is not seamless and a month later it is falling off. The workmanship is very poor with ripples and he left my utility boxes literally hanging from the house.

Mr. Rowe asked for the balance due to complete my patio cover, down spouts, and other misc. repairs. He gave me a sob story about how he needed the money. I told him I wasn't comfortable paying him anymore until he finished the job. I am an elderly widow and he pressured me until I felt very uncomfortable. He promised he would return to finish the work to my satisfaction, so I paid the balance.

Needless to say, he has not returned, nor will he answer or return my calls.

Addresses & Phone numbers to try.

AUTHOR: Marion Victim - (United States of America)

It appears this business has many locations. It's address changes almost as often as I change my....well you get the point.  Check out these addresses, per internet searching and private investigator.

5180 Peerless Road Centerburg, OH 43011

33759 Tiverton Twp Rd 136 Danville, OH 43014

OR

33759 Twp Rd 136 Brinkhaven OH 43006

And of course the address listed on this complaint:

4454 Twp. Rd. 232 Marengo Ohio 43334

Phone numbers to try (more to come, I'm sure):

(740) 358-3020 mobile number (may respond to text messages)
(740) 599-1558 listed as business number (but also listed as co-workers number)

One last comment, if the original author was lying, why it that the BBB has not heard from Doug Rowe or AO Construction to rebut the complaints. Simply because WE ARE NOT LYING!

Returning of Phone calls

AUTHOR: Marion Victim - (United States of America)

I would like to add a comment on behalf of the original author. Mr. Doug Rowe does not return phone calls and does only seem to complete half the project, even though he states he will be back to complete. He also does not always cover the deductible.  He can claim that he has all the paperwork, but I doubt he has run across anyone so anal retentive and organized as I and will show how he has fell short in completing my job.

I will say this in his defense, he did have his team out to my house the same day (even though it was late in the day) to tarp the roof and keep it from causing further damage.  From that immediate response, I fell into the trap of believing he had my back.

Please check the Better Business Bureau before hiring All Outdoors Construction, Doug Rowe. He has an F rating and I am not the only consumer he has taken advantage of. His rebuttal is completely false and I have my written estimates to prove it.
