Botched plasterer

A plasterer did some rendering on the front of my house not even a year ago. It is all cracking and it looks a mess. I have contacted him and he has been really nasty. The money I paid was some of the inheritance from my mum when she passed away nearly 2years ago. The plasterer never gave me a receipt when I paid him. Promised to post one through my door and never have done. He refuses to come round and see the damage. He also refuses to give me his address so all I have is his name MARCO. What can I do as I can see it all coming off and I can't afford to have it done again or go to a small claims court. By the way this person lives round the Blackpool area.

Sorry you have had a bad experience. A home ideally functions properly and the ascetics are not the most important thing so do count your blessings and don’t let it get you down too much. Sounds like you need a friend to help you pursue him legally here?
Sorry to say if it is ‘falling off’ then any correction is going to cost considerable money.
If it is ‘only cracked’ then it could be filled and painted at a lower cost?
Post a picture if you can...

Sorry but I'm afraid he has no intention of coming round to see the Shite job he did because he knew it was s**t when he was doing it im afraid he won't willingly pay you any money back either unless u pursue him to small claims court how much did he charge for the job by the way
 
Why did you pay him if it was a bad job?? Im really finding it difficult to accept why people are so afraid to say youre not happy. Id rather someone said something to me as id hate to ruin my reputation by bad reviews.

More chance of seeing elvis than Marco.
Why did you give him the job without recomendations or seeing his work?
I'm guessing he was the cheapest
