"We always try our best to provide our clients with the highest quality product as possible. When i first met with Karen i recommended a trench drain in front of her garage to catch any water that came down toward her garage as it was in a low area and the driveway sloped uphill away from the garage, The cost would have been $1,000.00 for the 8" trench drain with 1" bar grate and a 4' apron. She thought the cost was to high and didnt want to spend that kind of money so i told her that the only other option is a 4' apron with a swale in it for $300 which she agreed to. We formed it and poured it with a zero to 3" slope in 24'. This is not an extreme swale but a gradual slope. the car that she refers to as in scraping is a bmw that sits extremely low to the ground and only scraped by a 1/2". When i was notified of this matter i took some 2x12 over and laid them across and it missed by a good 1". I told her i would gladly donate my time and labor to remove the apron with the swale and pour back a new apron with the trench drain if she bought the materials which i thought was fair since i recommended it to start with but that SHE didnt want to pay for. Would have cost her approx $600. She refused my offer and demanded a refund of the $300.00 for the original cost of the apron. I told her i didnt feel i should have to pay as it was her choice to go the route we did after i recommended the trench drain. I also consulted with several other business owners who agreed that the position i took was the correct one. Please feel free in correcting me if im wrong in my position. I can give many other references for satisfied work. "
