Hired Peter to tile my kitchen and a shower floor.
First job was the kitchen. The instructions called for specific installation procedures, and two steps Peter tried to cut out. When I called him on it, he argued, then reluctantly agreed to follow the manufacturer's recommendations.
When he retiled my shower floor, he failed to cover and protect the drain. Because of this corner cutting, he filled the drain with grout and sealed it completely shut. Even confronted with his grout plug, removed by my contractor, he insisted he did nothing wrong.
This guy does thing's half-assed then he gets furious, loud and even threatening when he's caught out.
