Our contractor is taking forever.
It’s been weeks since he started, and this other construction project that he had already been contacted to do early in 2018 has dragged on forever due to complications with weather, people changing their minds, people bring fired, extra work being added, and mechanical failures.
I’m starting to lose my patience. He does good work, he’s exacting, he wants his work to look like new construction, he’s inexpensive. But he just came in and did no work again because the bonding material on the floors in the bathrooms hasn’t dried out enough.
I’m becoming worried that February will roll around and he won’t be done. We’ve still got floors and painting throughout the home he needs to do. And now he’s saying he needs to get new door frames because it “won’t look right” if he just undercuts the doors for the new floor, with literally everyone does. I have to keep insisting that we don’t have money to keep making additions and referring him back to what’s in the contract.
He’s also said that his other contract will be done on Friday, but we’ve heard this several times already.
It’s annoying, but he’s not made me angry…yet.
