I gave trader list of jobs to do. He charges per hour. The majority of jobs had to be redone at extra expense to me or he took an extraordinary of time to do them so I felt trader was wasting time to get more money. There was very little communication or listening to what I wanted as the customer. He asked to stay at the house to save the travelling and he said the jobs would get done quicker and he would work long hours. However, he didn't want to do anymore work after 7pm most nights. I feel he was very unprofessional. messy and disrespectful towards me & my house. I do not want him to come back. I spoke to him several times about this but this didn't make a difference. I have had to hire other traders who have redone a lot of his work despite us trying not to. The professional landscaper has had to redo the outside tiling which was laid on sand (so tiles were loose after just a few weeks) and levels were off, he redid the grouting in steps which were messy and the colour was totally off. Inside, he spent time putting finger pulls in the wrong location on the freshly painted windows which have had to be removed and holes filled, re-painted, a loft hatch had to be made substantially bigger because he made it uncharacteristically small (you couldn't fit anything up it) and old, recycled wood was used. He put up oak panelling in the living room but hadn't thought it through so the skirting board didn't fit properly underneath and drilled holes in the middle of it so it was damaged. He later rectified the hole but I had to pay my other builder to fix the skirting board problem. He changed a lock on one of the doors and now there is a hole in the door where the old lock used to be. Again, very difficult to fill it and leaves a mess for us to clear up behind. Shows a lack of forethought and planning but also discussion with me about what I would be happy with.
