Lightning Specialists Inc.4757 Belden Circle Palm Harbor, Florida United States of America
Since I live in the lightning capital of the United States, I decided to have lightning protection installed on my home. Many of my neighbors had it installed in previous months so I thought that I was doing the right thing for my home and family.
I looked in the local phone book to see if there was any local companies and called a couple to feel them out and price them. My first contact with Charlie Wilson was a phone call, he seemed extremely personable and somewhat reasonable in price compared to the others I called so I decided to go with Lightning Specialists.
This was A BIG MISTAKE. His crew was nice enough but the work was completely and utterly lacking. The job took a lot longer than it was supposed to because Charlie did not order the correct materials. The work was also completely un-astheticaly pleasing compared to my neighbors and when the workers were asked why they told me "that's how Charlie wants it done.' When I phoned Charlie about this he became beligerant and informed me that I did not know anything about lightning protection and he did not care how other companies did it. He also informed me that "I was lucky to have him working on my house' and that 'he normally only does work for electrical contracters' where he 'makes ALOT of money and doesn't need buisness like mine.'
He seems to be all about taking short cuts, smooth talking his clients and taking absolutely no responisbility for his work. On a side note, I also witnessed him treating his employees badly which in my opinion only reiterates the poor moral and social character of this man.
