Oh dear in sheerness, now don't get me wrong but this happens time after time again, the words so and told do come to mind. And I am not blowing my trumpet but it does make me mad when I here things like this, and I have gone through all this in previous blogs.
The story begins earlier this year, went to sheerness to quote for a garden scheme, the whole garden in fact, not a large plot but big enough, got there a little early as I always try to do, hate being late, saw a chap come out of the house I was to visit, so I thought ok up against another firm, no problem I thought, any way lost the quote by about £150 pounds ish.
According to the lady of the house.And I quote.
He done the work and I got on with jobs in hand. Then, I get a phone call from the lady to say that the chap who did the work has made a mess of the area, sand left on the drive, and some other points in the scheme are either not finished right or left out, the worst is that he has nailed the deck boards into place with out, and he stated that the lady did not need one, he has nailed the boards into place without a weed membrane under the frame and weeds are coming through the deck already, very unprofessional indeed. And to say that there was no need for one just proves the idiot did not know what he was doing. Let alone what ever else he has done wrong.
The problem I might have is to get the boards up in one piece, especially if he has used a nail gun, usually they use ring shank nails which are difficult to get out, the boards need to be lifted because the need to place a weed membrane down.
Going soon to see the work for myself.
See you all soon!!
