Finally after a year we are having security screens fitted to four doors, that can’t be hard can it. We will be able to open up the house; feel secure and keep the flies out
The nice man from Loui’s security gave us a quote several months ago, Michael balked at the price; which by the way was quite good. $3500
So after Michael procrastinating for several months; as he does I took the bull by the horns and ordered the screens. I asked that they come around and confirm the colour; which he did do that very afternoon.
All is going great so far, I am pinching my-self. I asked when I could have them and he said one and a half to two weeks. I said I was having overseas visitors and would like them in two weeks. So far so good.
I asked twice that he not let me down, he said he would try not to. I really must stop doing that as you just know that something is going to go wrong don’t you!
I rang the day before installation to ask what time they were coming, ( you get that they hadn’t phoned me right ) the following morning at 8am, and yes they were right on time.
So they arrived; and two doors fitted and two doors didn’t, as two had the handles at the wrong end. Ho hum!
They came back to their credit at 7.30am the next day (Friday) to install the fixed remaining two.
Michael had asked that they all be keyed to the same as the house key, BIG mistake. (So our problems began) Of course they weren’t as they didn’t have a house key.
I went that morning to a work function only to have Michael ring me to let me know that they had taken out our original door locks for three of the doors and replaced them with their locks. Go figure, I was freaking out completely as I couldn’t understand why they had done that.
It took me then 15minutes, on the phone ranting and raving that they fix what they had done. He didn’t get it. I see for the day I was surrounded by idiots, please someone save me.
So long weekend ahead and nobody could do anything till next week, Rang back Tuesday morning, guess what the guy who has my original key was away till Wednesday. See surrounded by idiots
Now today as we speak there is a very nice young man who is changing all my locks back to the original, he couldn’t understand why they did what they did either.
He was here all of 10 minutes and changed 8 locks, he is a star, the company is great and aside from the hiccups.
I recommend them, if you want doors, call them.
Thank you , I rest my case, pass me the wine.
