Depends on where in the room the door is but usually 3

I have a few questions to ask

How come you didn’t question the builder whilst the works were going on
If you had your concerns and you have a builder in the falmily why didn’t you ask him to have a look
At least he could have “managed “ the build on your behalf.

To me a lot of this could have been stopped before it got too far imo

If only the project manager was watching these cowboys like a hawk instead of letting them have an unchecked run for far far too long. No wonder he was fcuked off as well.

To cut a long story short I had a chartered surveyor in to do a report on a canopy that this builder had done for me because not only wasn’t I happy about the standard of work but this dodgy builder had issued me with a money claim through the courts. This was in despite of me saying that if he put the issues right then I would pay him.

So, after the chartered surveyor had finished his findings on the canopy ‘which by the way he absolutely slaughtered’ I asked him if he’d like to take a look inside my daughters house to see for himself such shocking standards of work and also explained to him that the more people who know of this builder/building company the better for all.

Anyway, he takes a look and cannot believe such shocking standards of work, takes a look out of the back bedroom window and points out that the extension roof isn’t right and that it will start to rain in soon. He points to some of the tiles on the roof and says ‘look how they’re lifting already’. and when I looked they had lifted 10mm or so.

When looking outside at the back of the property in the yard the horror on his face when I put the outside tap on only for the water to backfill because after they’d installed drainage channels they’d never even ran it to the drains but just simply butted the drainage channel up to a paver said it all you’ll ever need to know.

When the extension was built windows throughout the house were fitted. I even had to point out to the builder that the window in the back bathroom was out of square by 25mm and looked horrendous. He put it right but it meant the render that had also been done was smashed off in order to get the window square.

I can appreciate that it’s hard to believe because I’m struggling to come to terms with it too to think that there are folk out there who do this type of 5h1te.

A long long legal process but to cut a long story short and without going into any great detail another building company are in situ to start to rectify all of this total 5h1te.

When all is done and dusted and legally too I’ll try put up photos so it can be seen in all its unglory.

When I tell folk that I know of all the 5h1t caused they look at me as though I’ve gone bonkers and if it wasn’t for me then showing them photos and videos I’d think I was going fcuking bonkers too.

Edit - My father in law who has now retired ‘aged 83’ builder of 50 plus years has even cried after seeing the total hell hole because in his words he says he’d have done absolutely everything if he was 20 or so years younger.

He sees the 5h1t and cannot believe that people like this are even allowed to carry on trading.

It’s a total nightmare.

I've done a few over the years but I price them very high these days. even someone who might have been great to work for previously will watch you like a hawk, and question every aspect of what you're doing, what you need, and what it costs, which makes people uncomfortable and leads to a lot of mistakes and then the cycle starts again...

It’s all fun and games until you are justifying a price or timescale to rectify **** work.
Seems to be my bread and butter the last 18 months or so, then they want you to build or fit something else when you’ve done a good job but “funds are tight” and they want it done properly for tuppence and a shirt button

It sounds a bad situation and it's very difficult to resolve. I can't see the contractor finishing it to a standard you are happy with, and getting anyone else in would cost a fortune.
I would like to see some photos just to see where this falls on the cowboy builder vs pedantic customer scale. There are lots of tradesman on here, photos would get you a lot more feedback.
Especially the kitchen, laughing at builder fits is a hobby of mine

Who actually chose the contractor, and was there a previous relationship between them and the solicitor?

Despite it being noted and documented in the minutes of the meeting that a sink with the drainer to the left is fitted for some reason the builder saw fit to put in a sink with right handed drainer. Now it’s a big big job to put it the way it should have been in the first place as appliances etc etc have also got to be rearranged.

The builder has even fitted the worktop bowed so when you look at it from the other end of the kitchen it’s akin to a fcuking banana.

Over 200 snags with the property.

Buried power cable in the yard all of 6 inches deep.

I don’t know how they sleep at night.
