Actually they did all the work at the same time. I'd seen previous work and it looked fine. He's been in he trade for 40 years and told me he was booked for two years. So we left them to it. You look at the inside in the daylight and it looks ok if you don't know what you are looking for. It's now that we've moved in it becomes obvious it's really bad especially when the lights go on in the evening. Here's some pics under light-everywhere they've plastered looks like this. They hacked back to the brick work downstairs so surely the result should be smooth walls which we were promised? Upstairs they removed wallpaper and skimmed-again promising smooth walls.So they done the plastering and the rendering when you was away?
Ok so look at it like this. You came back from from your hols paying the tradesmen his money... Then ask on the forum if the work is acceptable! If your asking people if the work is acceptable surely you have a voice in your head saying the works not all that...
Did you look at previous work?
Did they take a deposit?
How long have they been in the trade?
Have they got much work on?
Name and shame them on the forum? Tell us who done the work?
