We wanted to build a porch/patio and had no idea how to go about it, so we consulted Angie's List. Upon review of this company, we figured it was worth a shot. We reached out to Exovations via their email request and was promptly contacted the next business day to schedule an appointment for 3/14/14 with Randy. Randy came out and reviewed our ideas and supplied a few of his own. What we were looking for was an addition built onto the rear of our house that would act as a three season room. We wanted windows throughout and a set of french doors that would lead out to a patio to a new paver or flagstone porch. The porch would include a sitting wall and a firepit. Randy said that they could do the work no problem and would need a few days to hammer out a design and quote. I asked about permits and all of the particulars and again, Randy said there wasn't an issue. We actually had something planned the following week so we scheduled the appointment for the week after (Monday 3/24). RED FLAG #1: On Tuesday the 18th, Randy called me to say that there was an issue with the windows and that they actually couldn't do the work because it would require permits for HVAC and other things because it was the addition of a room. I questioned why it would need HVAC since we were talking about a three season porch and were not looking for anything special with respect to the windows. All we wanted was storm windows that could be removed during the summer ect. No heating or AC was needed. ( my issue here is that if you did these type of additions all of the time, why wouldn't you know this when you meet with the customers?) Randy said he would need to ask and then get back to me, but when it sounded like a major issue, I told him to scrap the windows and just build a quote with screens only. Randy said ok and that if we really wanted windows (RED FLAG #2) - He would be willing to do them on the side after the work was done by Exovations. I wonder how the warranty would have worked on that one.... RED FLAG #3: When Monday the 24th rolled around, Randy called again and said he couldn't work up the quote for the patio until his stone guy came out and priced the job. My question is that if the stone guy needs to come out, then why didn't you know that up front. As I said, RED FLAG. I told Randy that would be fine, but wanted to hammer down another date for him to come out. He said for me to text him at his cell some dates and times and he would get back to me. I texted him a few dates that evening and then again the next day (3/25). I didn't get a response from him, which prompted me to call him on 3/27. Randy said that he got my texts but didn't have a chance to call me ect, but could we meet on Saturday the 29th. He had a morning and an afternoon slot open. I opted for the afternoon slot and he said he would confirm with me on Saturday morning and we would go from there. My schedule changed right after that, so I texted Randy asking if we could do the morning slot instead, but i never got a response. RED FLAG #4: Saturday morning rolls around and no call from Randy. I called him Saturday afternoon and no answer. I texted him that following Monday (3/31) no answer. It is now April 6th and I have not received any communication from Randy. At this point, even if he did come back with a quote we are not interested and count ourselves lucky that we are not going to have any work done by Exovations. I would have liked to have seen where they would have come in at on the bid, but alas, we never got one from them. All we got was a waste of time and the run around. How this company won Angie's List awards is beyond me, because our experience was less than stellar, and we didn't even get any work done.
