I liked after each work day.
In terms of his work, he did a nice job installing our floors. Apparently this was a tough job because our sub floor was wavy, but he did a great job getting everything in.
There were A LOT of attention-to-detail issues that I noticed (after the job was done)....too complicated to explain all of them in detail here, so I'll just describe the two biggest things that really bothered me about the job. First, after they installed the floors, they put the lower cabinets on one side of my kitchen in incorrectly. They were supposed to be flush against the wall, but instead they installed them about 1 to 2 inches away from the wall. I didn't notice this until they left and I was putting everything back into my kitchen and realized my trash can on the other side of the counter wouldn't fit anymore...it was too big by a few inches. That's when I realized that they hadn't put the cabinets back where they were originally and there was less space now btw the counter and wall. Seems like a pretty large oversight, and now the lower cabinets aren't aligned with the upper cabinets, and I had to find a new place for my trash can (not an easy thing since our kitchen is small and I need every square inch!)
The second thing I was really disappointed with was the backsplash tile job. This seems like it was the easiest thing to do, but it doesn't look professional at all. There are tiles that were installed crooked, they got mud/grout on my microwave, and they didn't evenly finish the
Lastly with regards to the tile (and probably the worst of all) is that they didn't caulk between the tile and counter! About 2 weeks after the job was done, we started getting cracks in the mud/grout where the counter meets the tile!! I didn't know why this was happening, but a quick google
To top it off, he was our most expensive bid...it was $3400 for labor (I bought all materials) for a job that lasted about 3.5 days. I thought most expensive = best quality, but I was wrong.
I would recommend him for installing floors, but that's about it.
