He did really nice work, clean and neat, but he estimated $800.00 and I budgeted $1000. I have contracted services for a total renovation of this house and two others so I am used to working with builders. I have never had happen what happened with this chap.
When he was done he said he would normally charge $2,500 for a job of this nature but from us he would take $1,800 - I was shocked, it was not a big job it is a relatively small bedroom. He wanted to charge me over double for the job. If he would normally charge $2,500 for that job I would NEVER hire him, I don't care how neat and nice he is. We paid him $1000 and will not have him back. Too bad.
