I am so furious.First, I made my first ever sale on half.com. A whopping $3.
Now, on to the fun stuff. Some of you may know that I was having my leaking oil tank removed and my soil remediated. The original quote was $14,700. I borrowed $10,000. Final cost: Almost $19,000. I am seriously ready to vomit. The work was started on 8/2. We had to call and scream at the company just to get the final invoice. We will get all but $1000 back through a state grant, but that could take months. In the meantime, I owe someone $10,000 and all of my savings are gone. So, the guy who gave us the estimate was off by about 50%, which makes him bad at his job. He has held everything up by about 6 weeks by not returning calls, not delivering promised items, etc., which makes him unprofessional.
His name is Perry Zenion, the company is Castlton Environmental. They are located in Nanuet, NY. I'm posting this comment in the NY, NJ, PA thread too and I'm filing a complaint with the BBB.
Getting this off my chest has made me feel slightly better.
