I don’t know much about thin coat but would what’s done be suitable to go straight over with a bucket coat or would it all have to come off?

What I was thinking . Get as much back of the guy who did it and try to avoid court as that could just cause more stress.
 
I will see what Wezly says when he comes over. The guy isnt going to give me any money back at all as he says he’s out of pocket doing it twice. I begrudge even paying£5500 for what I have been left with so I’m thinking court is the only option at this point.

Agree , unfortunately , think judge will only go as far as a compromise and possibly not worth the hassle.

Very little compensation to put up with it , and clean up the slabs ,the judge will take into consideration the plasterer has already had another go at no profit .
But he has taking money for a job that is clearly too much for him, he must be held responsible on the homeowner being able to have an 8 grand finish on her home.
 
I know he must be out of pocket doing it twice, but I didn’t want it doing twice in the first place. I just wanted a nice finish.
We have £3000 left to pay him which isn’t going to get it redone....
We also have someone coming to give us a quote to clean up the patio, god knows how much that will cost. We’ve also had to pay an emergency electrician to come out and fix our driveway gates as they put them back on the house incorrectly and the switch filled with water

You've definitely got to take it to court, those images are shocking, especially when compared to pictures of good work on this thread. It doesn't matter was what quoted the job should be to a satisfactory standard, the fact you were also charged top rate makes it even more shocking mind. Really hope he gets what he deserves for it. Out of interest does he have much of an online presence? If he has loads of good reviews etc he may be less hesitant to fold the company and start another, if he's nowhere to be seen online it's very little loss to him if it's a ltd company I think

That’s exactly my worry, I’ve since found out he folded a previous company and this is a new one with a slightly different name. I did pay the money into his personal account though, not business account. I’m not sure if that means I can claim from him directly

Hmm that was my worry, noone with that quality of work could of been trading for to long. You might get lucky that's it's paid into his personal account though, he might have made a school boy error there. Fingers crossed for you anyway

If he refuses to pay next stage would be to threaten to go to local papers, share in Facebook groups and things like that.

Apparently some home insurance policies cover you for legal costs against traders and builders

Please bare with me im old fashioned & straight talking.

Stop all contact yourself and let your husband deal with him and this situation.

He should step up to the mark and show his metal and shield you from this.

Theres absoloutley no way on this earth my wife would have to deal with an irrate builder i would die of shame first.

He needs to grow a pair of bollox if hes not the sort to deal with other nen in the old fashioned way then he needs to make legal arrangements.

Book a spa fof a night tell him to sort hs s**t out and leave tgem to it!

Goid luck x
