HAROLD INSISTED THAT BOTH MY HUSBAND AND I BE THERE FOR THE ESTIMATE. THAT SEEMED ODD TO ME AND MADE ME WONDER IF IT WAS BECAUSE I WAS A WOMAN. HOWEVER HAROLD WAS WILLING TO COME BY IN THE EVENING AFTER MY HUSBAND WAS HOME FROM WORK SO I AGREED. HE WAS VERY POLITE, ARRIVED ON TIME AND WAS VERY FRIENDLY. HOWEVER IN THE END I FELT LIKE HE WAS USING SOME HIGH-PRESSURE SALES TECHNIQUES. HE REALLY WANT...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
WE ARE SELLING OUR HOME AND AT THE INSPECTION A COUPLE OF STRUCTURAL ISSUES CAME UP. THE INSPECTOR FELT THE MAIN BEAM IN OUR BASEMENT WAS NOT ADEQUATELY SUPPORTED AND NEEDED TWO ADDITIONAL CEMENT-FILLED LALLY COLUMNS INSTALLED. AN ADDITIONAL LALLY COLUMN WAS ALSO NEEDED OUTSIDE UNDER OUR BACK PORCH. A STEEL PLATE NEEDED TO BE INSTALLED IN THE SILL ABOVE OUR BACK BASEMENT DOOR. OUR BUYERS ASKED US TO GET ESTIMATES FOR THE WORK. HAROLD CEDAR CAME TO THE HOUSE TO GIVE US AN ESTIMATE. ULTIMATELY WE TOLD OUR BUYERS THE ESTIMATE AMOUNT OF $780 AND WE AGREED TO TAKE $500 OFF THE PRICE OF THE HOUSE AND LET THEM HAVE IT TAKEN CARE OF WHEN THEY MOVE IN. I THINK THIS IS A COMMON SITUATION DURING A HOME SALE THAT ISSUES COME UP AT THE INSPECTION, ESTIMATES ARE OBTAINED AND SOMETIMES THE WORK IS DONE BEFORE THE SALE AND SOMETIMES IT'S DONE AFTER. I DID APPRECIATE THAT HAROLD CAME OUT PROMPTLY TO GIVE US AN ESTIMATE, BECAUSE I KNOW SOME CONTRACTORS WOULD NOT HAVE BOTHERED AT ALL IN SUCH A SITUATION.

I DID NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY AND DO NOT RECOMMEND IT. I FOUND THE SALESMAN DISMISSIVE, INDIFFERENT, AND CONDESCENDING. HE MADE NO ATTEMPT TO WIN MY BUSINESS. HE HAD NO MATERIALS TO SHOW ME, NOT EVEN A BROCHURE, AND WHEN I REQUESTED A WRITTEN ESTIMATE, HE PROCEEDED TO TAKE OUT A LITTLE BUSINESS CARD AND WRITE JUST ONE THING ON IT, THE COST OF THE JOB. THAT COST WAS DOUBLE WHAT THE OTHER TWO COMPANIE...

OVERALL, THEY DID A GREAT JOB... WENT ABOVE & BEYOND IN REPAIR WORK. HOWEVER, I HAD TO DO A FAIR AMOUNT OF CLEAN-UP (DUSTING/VACUUMING) AFTER THEY HAD LEFT - DRILLING INTO CONCRETE CAUSED DUST TO SEEP UP INTO THE 1ST FLOOR & COVERED EVERYTHING WITH A LAYER OF DUST.
