Find out why most complaints never reach the public.
Customer saves money, goes local. "I was considering
a Lindal addition until I read ALL the info online, including yours.
Thank You for your frank discussion. The thought of buying a Lindal
kit and having a builder simply 'assemble' it was too good to be true.
I'm now doing a custom addition with a reputable local
design/build. Thanks Again!" Brent Cooper, D.C.

Couple Wins Settlement at Mediation!
After a 3-year legal battle
with Lindal Cedar Homes to recover their lost $33,600 deposit, Steve
and Mariam H. of Seattle were awarded a substantial settlement at
their pre-arbitration hearing.
An investigation of Lindal's business
practices had revealed that the couple's dealer, Seattle Cedar Homes,
was in fact, not an independent dealer as represented but was actually
Lindal Cedar Homes operating behind a trade name. (The current website
of Seattle Cedar Homes simultaneously lists itself as a "wholly owned
subsidiary of LCH" AND a "local independent distributor of Lindal
The complaint also exposed Lindal's "bait
and switch" tactics and other bidding irregularities which
forced the buyers to abandon the project after receiving inflated
and unsubstantiated price quotes. The couple never received any materials
in exchange for their deposit. Congratulations to Steve and Mariam
for hanging in there! Link to full story is printed below.
