Results of the Columbus Contractors Board Hearing of May 5, 2020, concerning The Basement Doctor's failure to pull permits allegations.

At the hearing on May 5th, Mr. Dave Daniels, chief inspector of the City Development Dept, and Secretary of the Contractors Board, testified that the City had access to over 600 names of customers which had work completed by The Basement Doctor, Licensed under the name of J&D Home Improvement Inc.

Mr. Daniels further advised the board that J&D had pulled over 140 permits in the City since July of 2007. One water proofing job in 2008 was found to have not had a permit issued, J&D promptly pulled the permit for the home where the work was performed. The work was inspected by the City and found that all aspects of the work was according to City Code, and the homeowner was 100% satisfied with the work. Many of the names on the anonymous list that was sent to the City, were found not to have been within the City of Columbus jurisdictions, so no permits were required.

No home owners that the City contacted expressed any dissatisfaction with the work performed, or The Basement Doctors ethics. The Board found that a permit should have been pulled in this one case, but took no action against J&D or Tom Johnston the licensee.

Who do they think they are, if the code department did their job right the first time, when the original permit was issued we wouldn't have this problem would we. Most home I waterproof are less than 5 years old- are poorly built and poorly inspected! codes is just another tax with no service
