Waiting for tradesmen to visit to review bathroom refurbishment ! Absolutely furious and fed up with tradesmen who think that a single middle aged woman is an ‘easy’ target and think they can ‘ take the pi**’
1. Chipped shower tray
2. Temperature control on new shower not working
3. Leak - had cheek to phone me and ask where I thought it was coming from - living room wall will need to be repainted !
4. Fitted different light from one requested - he thought it was nicer!!!
5. Mirror not isolated so can’t be used independently of main light ( top of range mirror with Bluetooth speakers for teenagers)
6.several cosmetic / poor finishing.
This is as well as having numerous phone calls asking for balance of payment - they left my house at 10pm on Friday night and manager wanted money transferred that night before anything had been checked or tested - tried to pressurise me with emotional blackmail saying two guys who did the work needed their wages !!! When I identified the problems on Saturday morning he then passed my phone number to his workmen to call me! When I called manager to complain about phone calls and arrange a visit he said ‘ Oh I understand why you are upset because you are a SINGLE woman getting calls from guys ‘
Fortunately - I have an ensuite so my two teenage girls were able to have shower etc. I still owe them £2K - paid 40% deposit to cover materials etc.
Why do tradesmen do this ? My brother in law offered to come today before they visit - so sweet of him but just reinforces the male view of ‘helpless women’. I am furious !!! Sorry for the rant ??
