# 1 - Bad Attendance - After the first payment, she was chronically late or a no show for appointments. # 2 - Bad Communication - Where was she when she was supposed to be at my house? Probably stealing from other clients. # 3 - Underage Child - She brought him and he damaged our floor which she said she would pay for - Haha, joke's on us. # 4 - Bad Estimate - She doesn't do numbers . . .or truth to mention it. # 5 - Working As General Contractor - this is because she owes other contractors money - lots of it! # 6 - Stole stuff flat out. Lied. Told us that we had a credit of 4k and then without doing any more work, told us we owed her 4k. Sued us. In court she lost but we are still out the money and our things. STAY AWAY FROM HER - SHE IS A CROOK.

I've never had such BAD service that I felt like I had to take to the internet to warn people, but what I went through was just ridiculous and I'm writing this in hopes that the next person researching Julie Allen & The Beautiful Design Inc will find and beware. An abbreviated list of our complaints # 1-Bad Attendance # 2-Bad Communication # 3-Brought Underage Child To Work Several Times # 4-Bad Estimate Always Over Budget # 5-Working As General Contractor and Not Licensed # 6-I had a dark chocolate hardwood floor installed. She came behind that and painted the wall and didn't even cover the floor. She ruined the floor, broke all rules on floor maintenance, tried to fix it and when she had to admit that it couldn't be fixed, she promised a floor and I never got it. She proceeded to give a credit and I asked to be reimbursed and she stated that she went over the budget and I owed her money which is untrue. In addition, she nailed my bed to the wall to make it hard for me to move I'm assuming, which we will overcome and take pics to use as evidence. Who nails a bed to the wall, seriously! # 7-Bad Paint Job - She painted my room very sloppy, my 15 year old could have done a better job # 9-Terrible Shopping Skills, Could Not Stay In Budget & Promised Timeframe # 10-Stole Happiness Full list of complaints - http://bit.ly/bjeWKl
