Once again "Jack the lad" rears his ugly head again, was speaking to the customer in Gillingham recently, the patio that was small but perfectly formed, yes that one, the lady was saying that she got someone from "The Net " magazine who was from Rainham Kent, now the back of the job was to lift the old concrete and lay a new base, then lay the slabs onto a bedding mix to get back to the correct height for tyhe damp course.
Well "jack" was not only going to lay the slabs on top of the existing base, thus making the paving above the damp course, he also said that people do not worry about damp courses these days and he would put some shingle in the gap he was going to leave next to the house.
But he is the worse bit, if what he was going to do was not bad enough, he was going to charge the lady £700 for doing it and the lady had to buy the slabs herself and if there was any rubbish over she had to get rid of that too. So he was charging about 350 per day, nice if you can get it but at least do some work for that sort of money.
My price was £765.00 for a new base, slabs and taking the old concrete away.
I am sorry but where do these people come from, so if you have "The Net" put through your door, which I might add it is nothing to do with the magazine and those who are involved in the production of "The Net" watch out for this person in rainham,.
See You all soon!!
