Dear Mr. Lenoir,


As someone who has worked with you for over 12 years, we were very disappointed to see the work that you did on one of the houses we subcontracted to you in the Camas development.

As our oral agreement stipulated, we expected 5 black armoire units to be installed in the master bedroom, but instead, we found that 3 white particle-board desks were put in. I think you will agree that a communication problem exists.

We would like you to send out a crew to take out the white desks and put the black armoire units in immediately, or provide us with a refund.


Yours truly,

Dear Ms. Billings,


I was very disappointed to read your letter of July 10th dealing with the issue of wrong product installed in one of your homes. As someone who values your business, I have already put a plan in motion to fix the problem.

My warehouse manager and a crew will be at the site July 19th to take out the white desks and replace them with the black armoire units, free of charge. Also, we will deduct another 10 percent of the bill for the misunderstanding. Thank you for your patience.
