Help! driveway done without drainage

This guy has just finished the driveway for me but didn't do any contract or provide any paper work, though I asked for it from the beginning. Now I just found the work he done was not complied with regulations at all. What shall I do to rectify this ? The trust has gone, I certainly don't want him to do any follow-up remedy work but don't want to be robbed by cowboy work either.

Hi, I do not think you can do much about it. Contract is very important evidence. It must include listed work scope, costs and time scales as a minimum.

If your driveway is falling towards your house then you could take some blocks up and put some aco drainage in there can just feed them towards the down pipe off your gutters.
