Bathroom - must be completed by 21st feb - Bathroom Fitting job in Euston, North London

Job description

PLEASE DO NOT POST FOR THIS JOB UNLESS YOU CAN COMPLETE IT BY 21st FEBRUARY 2009. ANY QUOTES OVER £2,500 WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

We need a new bathroom as the old one is rather dated. It is not very large - perhaps 2x2 ms. It will require the removal of a lot of floor to ceiling tiles which is probably a day's work. We will need half the walls plastered and painted, and the rest tiled.

We would ideally like the bathroom moved round so that the bathroom is opposite the door and the toilet is where the basin is.

Re the floor: we would like the lino removed and the orginal wooden floor sanded and painted.

There will be some boxing and the removal and replacement of the shower. The suite needs to be replaced, and a new radiator put in. The bathroom fan needs replacing.

We are assuming we will buy tiles, etc from somewhere like B&Q but if you have a discount for better quality tiles and bathroom suites, please indicate in your quote.

Shoddy job, kept asking for money for materials during job despite paying half initially and agreement no more money would be requested until end. Worked slowly; didn't do full days. Spent 10 days doing not even 1/2 (a 2 day delay of the new ceramics didn't explain the go-slow afterwards), despite promise to complete whole job in 10 days max. Hired because he assured me he had a team but banged his head and couldn't finish the job. Many requests but no-one ever came to finish the bathroom; there was no team.

Had to find someone else to finish the job which put me in a terrible bargaining position as obviously I was desperate. The new builders showed me the shoddy workmanship and worked very hard for a week (during which they had to correct errors including a failure to waterproof under the floorboards).

Vesta then had the cheek to ask for more money when he finally resurfaced! He didn't even remove the old toilet etc as agreed, and I had to pay extra to get it removed.
