Prima-Seal / Do not honor ther promises

1 United States Review updated:

The company name is Primal-Seal. The owner's name is Brad. He has been first ignoring my wife's calls for over 3 months (since end of July!).

Background:

Prima-Seal installed new windows and a new storm door for my mother-in-law who lives in a townhouse. Now, as you know, every townhouse community has rules about the type of doors and windows you are allowed to install so that the community looks more or less the same. So my in-laws hired Prima-Seal to install new windows and a new storm door. The sales guy (Ken) promised that he knew what windows and storm door was required by the townhouse board. We found out AFTER the installation that he installed the wrong storm door. the community mgr send us a letter stating the required door model (Andersen) and said they would institute a fine if we don't change it. My wife communicated this to Brad and he ordered(so he says) the right storm door from home depot. He promised to replace the door with no additional cost to us. HOWEVER, it's been 6 months since then and we still have no door. When I or my wife call, he is never there so we leave messages for him to call us back but he never does!

The townhouse board has been lenient and understand that we are trying to rectify the situation BUT I can't even get Brad or anyone else at Prima-Seal to come and re-install the right door.

I'm hoping that you can help us resolve this issue.

Thanks,

Jeff Eng

Here is a sample of the Log of Calls I've made in the past month(but we've been calling since July):

- Spoke with Beth at 11:30am on 11/2 and left a message for Brad to call me

- Called at 2:30pm on 11/2 and again left a message for Brad to call me. I stated if he doesn't not return my call by 11/3, that I will be referring the matter to my lawyer to sue for damages of the fine, cost of the new door and installment of new door. (And, the fine being imposed by the townhouse community).

- Called on 11/8 and spoke with Brad. He has the door and said unfortunately that he doesn't have anyone to install the door right now. He said he will call me next Monday(11/13) to schedule a date. But he never did!

- Called on 11/21 and left a message for Brad to call me back.

- Called again on 11/22 and yet a gain left a message for Brad to call me back since he still has not called back.

- Called again on 12/8 and again left a message for Brad to call back. He has NEVER returned any of my phone calls.

    I couldn't agree more about what a TERRIBLE company Prima Seal is! When they wanted to sell me my new windows, Brad wouldn't stop calling me. I finally relented only because Ken, the salesman, seemed like an honest and nice salesperson. I paid a little over $900 for a down payment with a check and agreed to pay the remaining $1800 and some change with my credit card once the job was complete.

    One month after I had the windows installed, I found no less than $5500 had been charged to my credit card by Prima Seal! When I called (over five times) to try and get them to correct the obvious mis-charge, I was told that Brad was "on vacation" and would get back to me as soon as he got back. I have never heard back and I had to dispute the charges with my credit card company, which they are handling now (thank you USA!).

    So, to anyone out there thinking about getting Prima Seal windows, DON'T! You will seriously regret it.

    PLEASE READ THIS: I could not agree more. PRIMA SEAL IS VERY VERY BAD. I RECOMMEND STAYING FAR AWAY FROM THEM. They called and called and asked for my business. There were very fast to come out and make an offer. The salesperson seemed honest (although owner Brad says he "can't control what the salespeople say when he is not there.") I was given a demonstration about how great the door and screen were and how there was a lifetime guarantee on the whole thing, but I would never need it because there products are so great. Well 2 days after being installed, the screen became detached from the screen door and the lock on the wood door fell apart. I call 5 times and e-mailed 6 times. No response to e-mails, and for each phone call I got a different excuse, like Brad is on vacation, etc. I finally got Brad on the phone and he was rude and abrupt and said I must have broken the door myself and that the waranty was not for that. He then hung up on me. You would be better off installing your own door with a hammer and nails than doing business with these people. He said I am the only person that ever complained but obviously I am one of many. Read up on how many complaints they have had filed against hem with the Better Business Bureau. I wish I did before I ever talked to them.
