From BBB – Terrible experience with hiring this company to do my remodel project. I would like to give 0 if the system could.They asked for a high price but provided with cheap material and rough work. Their service is extremely poor. They told me it would be all finished in one week. But after eight weeks there’re still something need to be done. They told me “this’s is the requests from city inspector”, but they never can explain the reason why and refuse to give me the name of the inspector and asked me to call the city or give me a list of twelve inspectors to let me try to find out whom the mysterious inspector is. They asked for $975 for rebuilding a 7 stires and they want to ask for another $200 to install a handle for this stairs ( they told me the city inspector requested) and when I tried to install it by myself by purchasing it from home depot with only $12, they refuse to tell me what’s the details of the requests. I really don’t think they cares about any comments about their service. I just want to warn you who can read this and above comments to keep away from this company.
