I have used this company since 2007 totaling $4,300 in payments for services. The last job they installed metal posts to hold iron custom fence and gates. The center post simply fell over the week of July 3, 2016. I discovered the post was only placed 1.5 inches into the ground. I contacted the company and sent them photos a full description and copies of past receipts showing how much I have spent with them as a customer. I also sent them a proposal that I felt was fair
The email back said they declined my proposal.
The post that fell probably weights over 50 pounds and if it had fallen on the kids that pass by that gate regularly in the summer… Well, we’re lucky no one was killed.
Use at your own risk. Don't expect them to care about you as a customer or to stand behind their work.
In May 2014, Athanas replaced a fence post and re-attached the existing panels of fence to the new post. The receipt for $425 indicates a two-year warranty on the materials and work.
Yesterday, the post Athanas installed snapped at the base. Even considering the winds there is no way a 4x4 post should have snapped in the way it did -- clearly, the materials and/or work were the root cause. However, Athanas came to look at the fence today.
After initially disclaiming that he replaced the posts and then blaming phantom snow plowing for the damage, Athanas texted, "I cannot warranty wind damage of 70-75 mile wind gusts." (Yesterday's winds reached 62 mph at their high.) I replied, "There's no way the wind alone caused. This is your materials and work."
Athanas then called me on my phone, told me to use a different company, texted me "Your a jag bag," and blocked me from replying to his text message.
Use this company at your own risk with this information.
