Home Depot Market Place Home Depot Service Beyond Destruction Goleta, California
24th of Aug, 2011 by User903630
We walked into a Home Depot thinking that we would buy a bathroom set which included a tub and a shower faucet and knobs. We were approached by a know it all who asked us if we wanted to have him install the jacuzzi tub and a new tile flooring to put the plumbing in the correct place for the new tub etc. He came to the house with his tools and started to tell us of his success stories at college and boasted about his degree in designing interior mechanical engineering. He brought in a demolition crew who tore out walls and floor boards and started off good but left the clean up for us. The next day he showed up to meet with two plumbers who gave him advice on how to relocate a pipe but he did not use their ideas. He went home because of a migraine headache. The next day he asked us to follow him to the Goleta Home Depot to pick up the remainder of the wood and concrete mix to mask the walls and the tile. He got his truck impounded because a judge did not send in his DUI report to the DMV. We needed to give him a ride back to our home and he swore he would work hard to pay for his truck's retrieval from impound before 30 days were up. I checked on it it was impounded and he said he had 40,000 under the hood because he rebuilt it with special care. He went home with a strained back that day after lifting a saw and had us buy a new blade for it as well. We rushed him home to meet with his chiropractor. He showed up again to cut a few wood pieces and botched a perfectly fitted wall and made it bubble and the ply green board would not fit smoothly so he left it exposed to the outside elements. We can see the ocean through the water heater now. He suggested a window be put up high on the ledge and we ended up with an ocean view that he never finished. We also got a phone call at 10:00 Pm at night after we started cleaning up his mess again. And he needed a ride home his electric bike stopped working. After he charged his bike and spent some time at the bike repair shop he showed up to again tell us if he had to hurry the job the people he had do the demolition would charge him 11.00 more an hour so that would cost 33.00 an hour plus materials and help from us. So the job never was completed on time and my company from Denmark came and went back home and the job was still here awaiting him except the person who actually put the toliet back on for our guests and us cost 400.00 dollars and he wanted the job, so we fired the Home Depot employee but during the process he caused my husband to have a heart attack from over exposure to elements in cement mold and debris. And most of all stress. My husband now after falling over a speed bump with a two hundred pound waste barrel on his way to the garbage was injured and required four days stay in a hospital bed in ICU the idiot from Home Depot called him 18 times in two days to spew a drunken stupor and the nurses got mad and asked us to block him from coming to visit at Cottage Hospital in Goleta. We ended up with a severly damaged home and a patient for life. Now my husband has to take coagulation pills and four kinds of blood pressure meds for the rest of his life. I wrote the Home Depot Atlanta Georgia at the Corporate Offices and sent photos of the mess they have not responded. The Santa Barbara Health Department is going to send them a complaint form and the nurses at Cottage Hospital would not release my husband until we had a workable toilet. This employee was told to do this, I do not know why but he still buys from them and he returned some of our materials without paying us back. This so called contractor also took redwood wood from another carpenters job to build a deck on the back stairs. He stole, he lied, and he worked for Home Depot. He yelled all the way out of here causing the neighbors to call the police and we were fighting about him being dishonest and mixing up everything. He took my husband to five different stores to shop for different items that were at one store, The Home Depot. He shopped at Home Improvement, an insulation fatcory, at Ferguson's, and a Carpenteria Hardware store. A Haywards Lumber in Santa Barbara CA leaving very little time to do anything else. I asked that Home Depot pay me back the 3,700.00 I paid in labor and parts to this person they gave me a denial letter. I wrote another letter to corporate asking that they not only pay the money I put out on the contractor but the new expenses on a maintenance person who owns two units here where we live ;that bid the job. And then I took photographs and asked the store communicator if I could use his Home while mine was being Contracted out by one of their employees. I would have to fly to Georgia to take over his home while mine was being repaired 3 months down the road. I have been staying at camp sites for a month and so has my husband we do not have a workable sink or bath. And the house is no longer heated because of the giant holes in the walls and floor. I think the only way out of this mess is to ask my insurance for a scam check. And their lawyers will do the rest. Just read Home Depot's posts there full of former disgruntled employees and people who can not defend themselves from corrupt policies that encompass products sold by them. They should be DBA in Real Properties. I owned three homes before for 24 years so I know the game! Foreclosure on Home Depot
