I'm sure these guys do good work for a lot of people. I drove around to look at houses they worked on. A lot of them looked really nice. But I had a pretty upsetting experience getting a bid from them. Made an appointment for a bid and a salesman came on the appointed day, the last of three bids I got. During the conversation outside my home the topic of lead in old siding materials came up, and how it would be an extra charge if it was there. Fine, my house is super old and I wouldn't be surprised if it was, but I asked a question and I should have been tipped off then that something was off. A previous bidder had talked about their testing methods so I asked the salesman about theirs. He responded to my question by rolling his eyes at me and saying "okay, I'm outta here", then started walking back to his car. I was confused but convinced him to come back to finish the bid. He muttered something about how I wanted to "cheap out" on lead abatement, which was just super weird. I thought it was a normal question. A few days later I got back the bid. It was very detailed and helpful. We went back and forth with some changes. I'm renovating an old duplex and I'm $50k into updates already so I asked about options to try and keep the cost down. The salesman was a bit snippy at times but I figured he was busy. I started to get excited about the James Hardie product because it does look great. I negotiated a small discount of about $1,000 and decided on TCSP for my project even though theirs was still the highest bid. I called the other bidders and thanked them for their bids. However, things got progressively worse with the salesman. On two occasions, he insinuated that I was using him and the PM as free consultants, that I probably had no intention of hiring them, etc. It was a little insulting but I just wanted to get the project moving. As the planning meeting neared, the office emailed a me a contract to e-sign. After a conversation with the project manager on the phone, I decided I wanted to add insulation to the project. Because the contract was no longer correct, I left it unsigned. The planning meeting at this point was three days away and I thought we could clear it up then. Then, I got two pieces of conflicting information: the salesman told me I needed to submit a 10% down payment before the PM could come out, with the rest of the deposit due then, but the office manager told me that I could skip the down payment and provide a 50% deposit at the time of the meeting. I pulled $18,000 out of my HELOC for the 50% check and waited for the meeting. But then, first thing in the morning on the day of the project planning meeting, the salesman gave me a call. He immediately launched into a tirade about the 10% deposit, telling me that I wasn't holding up my end of the bargain and berating me for jerking him around. I hadn't had my first cup of coffee yet. I was just flabbergasted, and I hung up. Confused and angry, I forwarded an email to everyone I'd been in contact with at TCSP, showing the request from the office manager to write a check to the PM for the whole first half of the project. Even though I felt pretty disrespected, I tried to salvage the situation because I really had been looking forward to just getting the project going. But it was too late. The production manager called me and calmly explained they were going to have to decline the project because there was just too much "mud in the water" as he said. And that was probably the right call with all the acrimony flying around. Just such a bizarre experience. Again, maybe you'll have a good experience and it does look like they do good work. Don't ask too many questions though, and just pay what they tell you to pay.
