Customer Question

Hi,
I hired the contractor to do blow in cellulose soundproof for my apt, but, he did not do the job right way, it should cut down the noise to 60-70%, but, every noise is still the same, I got 2nd opinion, the 2nd one said this person did every thing wrong, the whole project is $1200, but, he damage my whole walls ( 2 room), I need to hire another to replace the wall and redo the job, that will cost me a lot.
Please help me plus the contractor threaten me, I'm afraid my life will be in danger since he knows my address.
Could you please advice
Thanks

Good morning. If you are in fear of your life and he made threats to you, then you need to go to the police, file a report and allow them to investigate. That is criminal in nature. Now, if he failed to perform the agreed upon job and did everything wrong, he needs to correct it. If he refuses, then you have no choice but to sue him and could not only go after him for the money paid BUT the cost in fixing the damage which he caused, by his own negligence and failure to do the job as agreed. Based upon the amount sought, this is likely going to be a civil matter for small claims court and you can sue on your own. The clerk of court has the forms for you to fill out and file to start the process and you can go after him and obtain a judgment.
