ABM Aluminum Gave an 'out the door' quote and then wanted $950 for concrete footing. Lakeland Florida
I asked for this company for a complete price for a screen enclosure. After I got the quote, I asked twice (on two separate occassions) if that was 'everything, out the door' and I was assured that it was. Well after getting half of the money up front, I was told that footers needed to be poured at a cost of $950 and that I would have to pay that. Apparently when these people say everything or out the door, they don't really mean it. So, not only did they want more money than we budgeted (we had gone to the bank for a loan to do this project), but they kept $165 to cover their engineering costs. I was handed a stack of papers showing how the frame work would all fit together, which is probably of no value to me since another contractor will want to use his own engineer. And to add insult to injury, the check they gave me on the spot (minus the $165) only had my last name on it and it was badly misspelled. Very unprofessional on all levels! Avoid these people at all costs. There are plenty of other options out there.
