Review by Patrick M.5 months ago
When we employed this builder we had high hopes that were quickly dashed. The job [rectifying a roof leak and consequent internal decoration] was due to start first week in April. They insisted on payment of 50% of the contract IN ADVANCE rather than the usual 10-20%. Weather was hot and clear for 3 weeks - perfect for roofing. Instead day after day there were excuses for delays for a whole month. Then when they decided to start in May the weather changed. So against every advice they decided to start on making good the interior. They also had to do some waterproofind on our office staircase - two small areas about 8'x8'. I persuaded them not to hack off all the cement render which had been replaced 5 years ago but to remove the plaster skim and to use a waterproof membrane. In this case Newton 805 Newlath which has a mesh to adhere the plaster skimcoat. Instead of which they installed Newton 803 which cannot be plastered and consequently had to remove it and reinstall 805 - the loss of a day. By the time they had done this and an excellent plastering job they had also redecorated the interior damaged ceiling but without making good the exterior! Then it rained for a week. The water poured in. The redecoration work which had required a tower was destroyed and things were worse than before but Ecobuilders started demanding a further progress payment of 30% although by this stage they had effectively carried out about 25% of the work satisfactorily. They pointed to their 'conditions' printed on their estimate which also guarantees all work for 2 years. The guarantee is worthless. And they have declined to come back and finish the job without further payment. |Effectively they did not even finish the staircase because the picture hanging rails were not replaced... BEWARE!.
