On November 1st I hired a tile person to complete a job. He started the job, then did not finish the job. He basically texted me on November 20th he could not finish the job. He left all his tools, put me in a very stressful situation as I had on 3 days to have the tile job finished before renters arrived. It ended up costing me almost $400.00 more than his quote. I also had to go myself and collect all his tools. I never heard back from him until Yesterday evening he would like to collect his tools.

Thank you in advance for your advice. ...Read More
