Complaint Review: Statewide Remodelling, INC - Austin Texas
Statewide Remodelling, INC 5X5 Bathroom tile and sink replacment, measurements miscalculated, job way overpriced, box and a half of tile left. Austin Texas
Bathroom 5X5 sink replacement, and floor tile addition, Measurements miscalculated, and left me with a box and a half of tile, to figure out how I can use the tile. In a previous estimate in 2011, the ceramic tile replacement would have been, $293.00, for the 5 X 5 Bathroom. A new sink would now cost 300.00. I would suppose all the labor to replace the sink and install the tile would be around $500.00. Thats an overestimate. So the whole install in 2011 would have been $1093.00.
So now Statewide comes in and says we need you to sign this so we can get you a loan from Home Depot, so we can do the job. So Mr. Stupid here signs the contract, and the Design Consultant says I need a check for $500.00 to get started. So now I have a Project Loan with Home Depot to the tune of $2000.00. Somehow Mr. Stupid gets the inclination that he is being taken for a ride. Of course it's to late, $500.00 had been cashed, and the $2000.00 loan has been approved. But I am not done yet. It took them 5 weeks to get the material, and I paid Home Depot one payment, and nothing had been done.
So anyway after the install and I am left with a box and a half of tile, I called the Design Consultant guy, that took my $500.00 check from me, and said to him you miscalculated measurments. Says, well we want more material for the job, just in case. However there is a form for you to fill out, and I will call you later in the day, to let you know about it. I am still waiting for the call, but I have other ways of getting around the extra tile, but that will come in time.
My problem is that I am a very passive person, and do not like confrontations. However with age I am trying to get myself together, and confront head on. But if you snooze you loose. The installation person did a great job. No problem there. My problem is after I got to thinking about the cost and running the figures over in my mind, I got ripped off at least a $1000.00. If you ask me about Statewide Remodelling, Inc I would tell you to go in another direction. Get on the internet, there are plenty of nice people that would do the job just as well but cheaper.
