In my complaint I will add that the staff, the actual quality of the installation of this project was above expectation. Punctual and mannerisms of staff and Mr. Kissler meet with approval....This complaint deals solely with the CLEAN-UP process only........

What happened here is going to take a long time to get over...it was all unnecessary and avoidable.

This is consider resolved as in a goodwill status only.

We had contracted with Gregg Kessler of Kessler Plumbing to install a sewage line for hook-up to city sewage service. Like in most contract work there is the agreement and signing, the beginning, the actual performance of the job and then the clean-up. Our project cost was $3,400 dollars total which was to cover all of the above components. It began on Monday Jan. 18, 2016. The job became a mess of wet dirty slurry with each backhoe bucket dig. The backhoe would slip and slide and dig deep into the dirt making big tracks . It became impossible to complete the job with all the wet condition on that day. Two separate yellow caution tapes were strung over the two clean-out boxes to warn of the danger that existed and an agreement for us to purchase a lot of dirt (what happened to the pre-construction dirt?) which Gregg Kessler would send his men back out to clean up the messed up yard. Four days later Gregg Kessler decided he did not want to clean-up the mess. Told us to pay neighborhood teenagers to do it or hire a professional landscaper because they would be cheaper that him. As it turned out Gregg Kessler wanted us to pay him an additional $100 dollars an hour (We had already paid him the $3,400 dollars agreed on) to come back out and put the yard back to its original condition. Claiming he wasn't a landscaper . Somewhere the clean-up turned into landscaping ? All the time we were not able to use our property and those two very dangerous holes stood filled with water...It was scary ... It was a traumatic experience to say the less making our days full of 'what do we do' and 'who can we go to for help with this'? From Jan. 18 to March 9th , 2016 the threat of a possible personal injury suit lay dormant. We were in tears with each rain day as that would delay the clean-up which looked so ugly. Finally on Sunday , March 6, 2016 spent sending/ receiving 12 different e-mails I basically let Gregg Kessler know he was to come out or refund us $400 dollars. His greed took on a Jesus meeting reality. This should never had happen. Why did it happen? What did Kessler gain? How often has this company done this? I don't recommend this company on jobs bigger than they are equipped to satisfactory complete in a professional manner. The finish clean-up was not any above better than it was at the begining.
