Lowes - Show others my experience

Update by user Jun 15, 2021

Nothing, and I don't expect any, arrogance of experience which you might expects from a fly by night Contractor. Don't just look at this experience check out the other posts.

My big Mistake was in taking their Interest Free 2 year Financing. Lowes was Paid 100% up front, allowing them to walk off the Job knowing they had nothing to loose.

small claims court attorney represented Lowes information presented was either hear say or proprietary.

Original review updated by user May 16, 2021
contract to install Hardie factory painted siding, dealt with sales person who was tasked with selling some 20 installation products, minimum knowledge of product, relied on contractor who I was told had done many Hardie Siding installs, big mistake, his order was off by almost 25%, took 5 weeks to get, resulting in 1/4 of siding not factory painted, misrepresented by both the Contractor and Sales person of what would or could be done. The Sales Person became the Project Manager, and the Contractor was replaced with a Contractor that didn't speak English, Sloppy workmanship, Caulking misapplied, tooled voiding color warranty, Eve's installed in manner that wasn't what I was told, incurred addition cost for Electrical & Repairing Gutters. Big mistake was opting for Lowes 2 year interest free credit. Had no recourse other than legal when they walked off the Job. Contract has Arbitrationn Cause, they don't tell you legal cost aren't recoverable leaving Small Claims court with its $10,000 which isn't Consumer friendly, Lowes represented with their Attorney, its stacked against the Consumer and Lowes plays it to their advantage. This they did very well.

User's recommendation: need to get everything in writing.
