We recently hired a contractor via a 3rd party bidding website for such projects.
There are several obvious mistakes or oversights here. We've already allowed the contractor to correct some of his mistakes, but at this point we are convinced he is not experienced enough to do the job if even we gave him multiple chances to fix things.
- The contract says we need a $2000 deposit upfront to get the project started and for materials/supplies.
- The 2nd half of the payment would be $2700 upon completion.
Please see these photos and tell me my frustrations are either justified or i'm just being picky. Keep in mind that the project is not complete.
Below: Grout + caulking around the shower floor-pan edge is already cracking. Note that the edge here had large gaps between the floor-pan and the floor tiles. The contractor explained that he caulked it before the grout dried.
Note: I'm now aware that the wall/floor moulding may not be an issue as the contractor may have had something like this in mind.
