Came to the property to lay footings for the wall, they did not have the required tools didn't even bring a string for straightness, left the path in the middle of footings cos they had no tools, had to break it up myself and lay concrete before the bricky came,the brickie said he was coming but didn't and worst of all they did not have the decency to text me of same. Anybody would be a fool to employ these,easily the worst I have ever had.
very amusing as when you described the job it did not say anything about breaking up a path,so we didnt know we had to bring our breaker,and we had arranged for myself to do the footings to speed the process up as the bricklayer was busy untill the weekend,knowing full well that i told you i am not the bricklayer/foundations but i will do it if it helps things along,and as for not texting you how did i know it was raining in wales then,because you text back saying its not worth coming over to build the wall because it was raining,and we agreed that if it was raining saturday morning we wouldnt be over to do the wall until the following week,so this is obviously a big misunderstanding or your a pain in the backside to all trades as when we were there you had a bad word against all trades especially the plasterer so i think you could of been the problem,thanks for the feedback thoughand i highly reccomend if you advertise more jobs online you put state the full details of the job,and this is a big learning curve for me aswell as i will not be buying jobs online without viewing the job as this job was toatally difrent to the details given

It took me less than 30 minutes to break the path and I am 63 years of age, I didnt need a breaker only a sledge,if you had brought some tools it would have been easy,also the footings you put in either side of the path were 6 inches out in level, and I used up the remaining materials to bring this level. I have nothing against tradesmen but I assure you that you dont fall into this category. A complete and utter waste of space.

ok then well your path was level between the footings as we put a level on it,and the concrete was about an inch below the path on both sides and we used the batton and level on both bits of the footings and was pretty much level so i think your telling a few little lies,and as for knocking the little bit of path out we agreed that the brickie could cut the bricks into it so again your just trying to make me look bad,which to be fair it doesent matter how much you say a bad word about me on here i get most of my work from recommendation or local builders,i use this if i get a couple of days off,i appreciate your feedback and sorry you werent happy but like i said the first time ive done it and have only done it to speed things up as my brickie was busy,but ive never known anyone to take a sledge hammer to work just to dig footings,so what is the point in me taking what i thought to be unecessary tools out of the lock up and make the vehicle heavier than needed and if i was to bring my van its dearer on the bridge before you say you didnt even have a van,anyway im not going to argue over the internet about it you payed up for what weve done and youve supposedly done it yourself or got someone else in to do it so i hope all goes well for you

We are completely satisfied with the work. Ryan and his colleague were very pleasant and helpful and our kitchen/dinining room and utility room look even better than we hoped that they would.
