Bathroom woes, what would you pay? WOULD you pay?

3 Replies

So, it came time to remodel my downstairs apartment how to get this done quickly so I ended up using a contractor to replace my tub & walls. It's not a full rebath as the old tub was removed and they used "acrylic " walls. Essentially they glued a sheet onto a wall. So, end of the 14 hour day. I'm left with this.

Essentially I told them I wouldn't song any finance paperwork until it was rectified. The walls "look" like a stone, however the bead wasn't spread around so there's waves and squishes when you press on it. A simple tooth trowel would have stopped this.

Do t know how to load pics via mobile so I'll update on my computer.

Aha!  Very good.  Sorry about the unhappy contractor experiences.  We've all had them.  What did you have re: a scope of work/documentation for quality expectations?  Who picked the materials?  This will dictate how much leg you have to stand on to withhold payment IMO.
