2 brick walls and a ceiling plastering required yeovil - Plastering job in Yeovil, Somerset
Hi, I need:
1 brick wall completely plastering (dot and dab or whatever you suggest) it is 4m by 2m and I have applied PVA it already.
1 wall needs patching up but is quite thick in some places but only needs about 2m square doing, there is existing plaster in some places that was a lot harder than the stuff that fell off so probably wants to stay but whatever you suggest again.
1 ceiling (4m by 2.5m) boarded and skimmed.
Really need the work doing ASAP this week as it's a bit of an unexpected job.
Many thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you, Ash

CAUTION - poor workmanship, bad communication and petulant.
At the quote we agreed a way ahead (the same as the other company after I told him their intentions); post the work he told me he would have done it differently which is why the wall had ridges and was not blended into the original plaster, he didn't mention this at the time of the quote even though he's the 'professional'. Prior to the work he didn't communicate that removing socket faceplates is not a task he undertakes so had to return after an electrician, delaying the rest of the work.
After he came back the second time (to rub down his freshly plastered wall as it was so bad) the work was still unsatisfactory.
He left a hole in the ceiling that was too big to cover with a standard pendant.
He used my tools without permission and left them with significant plaster on along with excessive mess on the floor.
When confronted about my disapproval he asked 'what do you want me to do'. I told him a partial refund of £100 would go some of the way to put the problem right and make me feel a little less ripped off. I did not receive this but he accused me of blackmail as I indicated I would leave an honest review which would be different depending on how much I paid as the work was worth £400 not £500
He won't answer his phone to discuss the problem but sent a text threatening to report me to the police for harassment and blackmail.
He has not provided an invoice or receipt.

MDP Building Contractors's reply:
This is the first negative review I've had - the truth of the situation is that Mr Ash Morgan agreed the price, inspected the work and paid in full. He then said that he would put good feedback on line if I gave him a £100 discount, but negative feedback if I didn't. I made it quite clear that I would not be blackmailed into accepting a payment for less than the job was worth. I've reported the situation to the police and consulted a solicitor to see if there is any redress available to me.
