I've just had a carptener install skirting board and I'm struggling to see how I'll decorate them so they look half-decent.
After he installed them he complained that the walls were difficult and therefore there were some large gaps between the skirting and wall (up to 11mm at its worst). He's filled these with caulk but already I'm seeing it come away in some places.
He's also put in a couple of joins on the longer lengths without asking me. These aren't especially long lengths so it's just him saving wood. They're only 2, 3 and 3.5m lengths. The joins are really obvious.
One of the external mitres is 2mm off.
Some of the nails aren't flush with the skirting.
Lastly, the gap between the skirting and the floor varies from no gap to 6mm.
Is it possible for me to caulk/fill around these issues? Or should I get him back in? I'm not sure if I'm being unreasonable or not.
