1060779_CWMSTOREFRONT_BLOGCHIHaving been burned by another prominent Pleasant Baltimore Roofer, Patrick, CWM was chosen because of the Storefront. 1060703_LADDER_BLOGCHI July26, 2011, 2300 dollars was paid for a relatively small job.  The business disappeared from the location when the New Homestead roof began to leak the following year, 2012. Not that the two events were in any way connected -- Just noticed.

A working phone number for CWM was found on the Splinterwebs approaching March, 2013.  March 5, 2013 a crew arrived to do the Warranty work.  After tipping the Crew, I was given a Business Card for TAG. That was the first time I heard of TAG. I was led to believe I was still dealing with CWM -- They had moved to Bond Street I was told. 2400938_MARCH5REPAIR_BLOGCHI

The repairs failed.  I called the number on the Card I was given. Gino and another technician showed up on March 11, 2013.  The New repair lasted a week before once again failing. 1060934_BILLY_BLOGCHI I have repeatedly called since March, 2013. Gino recently threatened to have me arrested for harassment if I didn't stop calling. 2420087.2NDREPAIR0311013 It's tough being a Senior Citizen living on a Fixed Income. Though he was the last up on the Roof, he said it wasn't his fault the roof leaks. Of course it isn't his fault.  That's why we paid 2300 dollars to have the roof repaired with a warranty. Gino also expressed it was an Act of Kindness, Claiming the Title of "Good Samaritan",  that he was making an appearance at all. P2420064TAG_BLOGCHI  The roof still leaks.  Such kind young men they are. Let's hope they never get into Food Service. Are CWM and TAG some sort of a Nationwide Franchise? If so, do they all treat Senior Citizens with such Disdain. 2410496_ceilingtooBLOGCHI The leak in this nearly 2 year old roof is nearly a YEAR Periodically dripping.  A New Ceiling repaired after the initial CWM NEW WHITE ROOF installation is also now necessary. Just the Facts and Photographs as we see them. -- Photographs and Video document all Contractor appearances. This is a Work in Progress.

Perhaps there's been a Breakthrough.  With Cautious optimism we wait for a third copy of a letter.  Rousseau having eaten half of the first which was deposited in the Front Door Mail Slot. Kenny ,  kennycwm One of the original CWM partners, showed up first thing this morning and apparently climbed to the roof.  My office is in the front room but I heard no one.  -- We did catch him before he left and climbed the ladder to the roof with him. Of course I began to video the sequence and Kenny became very disturbed and told me to stop harassing him. After being dripped on for a year, the term harassment has taken on new meaning.  Kenny climbed back off the roof and I naturally followed not wishing to climb down by way of crab apple tree. It is the right of the homeowner to photograph and video any activity concerning their property.  If this activity disturbs a contractor I would assume the contractor has something to hide.  You'd think in this reality show and you tube age they would want their work documented. -- To take Pride in one's work.

Anyway, Billy called and after my initial confusion of believing he was trying to sell me a new sky light -- My cynicism runs deep.  Billy said they would replace the skylight and also repair the ceiling at no extra charge.  The second copy of the agreement arrived by email attachment but the ceiling repair was omitted.  We'll find out tomorrow what else is developing. Really, To be continued.    This should be a positive experience for all concerned, should it not?  Good business Practice maybe. -->>Ken Piaskowski
