Complaint Review: Patriot Construction
Patriot Construction Robert Skertich --Worked on Neighbor's Roof-- Careless Workers left trash and cigarette butts on My Property-- I'm left Cleaning Up the Mess!! Chicago, , Illinois
*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Fictitious slander from our competition.
*Author of original report: Patriot Construction Group is now harassing me by Phone
During this time we were very considerate and cooperative of this large construction project. We had no problem letting this contractor use our gate, front driveway, and side yard to set up ladders and scaffolding to complete the task next door. It may not sound like much of a hassle on our part but considering we had to park on the street, keep our dogs on a leash (in our fenced yard), and listen to loud machine on our property, I thought we were overly generous!
I completely understand that contractors of all trades have a very tight time schedule, especially during a tough economy. However, I was extremely upset to find that this company left a huge mess in our yard, garden, and flower beds.
I called the number on their website and the gentleman who answered said he would send out a crew to clean up the mess the very next morning. [continued below]....
Since I wasn't going to let our dogs get hurt by stepping on rusty nails sticking out of their debris, I decided to clean up the mess myself. My neighbor and I spent 6 hours picking up their trash out of our flower beds, garden and yard.
To be fair, my neighbor did say that his new roof was installed well with NO leaks. However both agreed that they could had done a much better job cleaning up their mess. Also, I would not had made this complaint public had the gentleman on the phone been considerate and actually cleaned up the mess which he said he would do.
My assessment: If you want quality workmanship Patriot Construction has the knowledge and skills to complete the task correctly. However if you wish to keep a good relationship with your neighbors, make sure their property is cleaned of roofing debris before signing the final check.
Once Patriot Construction has their $$ you won't ever see them again!
