Hired Fred yesterday to scrap and reglaze my clawfoot tub. I asked him 3 times to cover my just renovated tile floor and baseboard before doing any work . He assured me he would. Regardless, he didn't cover the entire floor and baseboards so now I have red flakes in my grout. He also didn't cover the recently stained baseboards. I even have a white tear drop mark down one baseboard. None of these marks were there before Fred started. I was really disappointed. Sure the tub looks great, but now I have to deal with the mess he left behind. What is so frustrating is that I asked him repeatedly and he just brushed me off. As the client, I feel like he ignored my repeated request for something that was so easy to do. All he had to do was extend the length of the paper or plastic to cover the entire floor and the baseboards and do that at the start of the process - not just before he was about to paint. I was really disappointed in his attitude and lack of consideration. All this and he asked me for more money at the end of the job because it took longer than he expected.
