Complaint / review text:
Homeowners beware. Do not open your doors to Aloha Construction for you might find youselves in court fighting to hold on to your money. Aloha Construction knocked on our door in March 2012 to let us know that we might have damage done by a storm that had passed through and asked us if they could look at our property and see. We gave them the ok to go ahead. Big mistake. They said it looked as if we had damage and stated our insurance might cover some or all. We started to call our insurance company when the Aloha Construction rep stated he had all the insurance componies on speed dial? And called for us. We varified the claim to be made with our insurance and arranged to meet the adjuster. The Aloha rep then pulled out a paper stating it was just so they can be at our property to meet with our insurance adjuster so please sign, and we did. Dumb. We did dirrectly question him before we signed the paper askingand saying "this form isnt concrete correct, not written in stone, that until we get your cost / estimate we arent commited to anything correct." "Yes, correct, " replied the Rep. Not untill June 2012 did we finally recieve the estimate and that coming after many, many requests and dirrection from us that no work was to start, because they tried that too, and that we were going to get bids for the work. Not until a ugly meeting with Jim Nicolette at our home when he tried to bully and threaten me by droping the bombshell and finally opening my eyes to why this has been so difficult. He stated to me was that our estimate was the amount of whatever the insurance company gave us? That the paper we signed was a contract that states that even if we dont have the work done by Aloha Construction that we will still owe them money? I told him good bye and he emailed me a estimate that was copied from my insurance papers dollar for dollar. We pursued another contractor for a bid and it was more than a thousand dollars lower then Aloha Constructions and they did more work to really make it looked finished and the used superior product not the cheap product that Aloha was to use. Aloha had recently sent us a letter by attorney asking for the 15% of the insurance money they say the paper states they get even though they did nothing to earn a single dollar. Deceptive Scammers. We will see them in court.
