Hello and thanks in advance for any assistance.
My wife and I recently signed with a pool builder in upstate NY.
They began excavating last Friday. This morning, they gave us the bad news that our yard had been "filled" and had non-virgin soil. As such, they have to install something called a Pool "lift" and it's going to cost us another $10,000.
I inspected the hole that they began digging, and I saw none of the problems that they had told me about in the contract: no tree-stumps, dead bodies, no rusting automobiles, no nuclear waste, bones of the dead, tombstones, Shangri-La, oil bins, Jimmy Hoffa, nothing. There were like...2 tree branches that they kept referring to as "organics".
Am I being scammed or what?
