I wasn't able to finalize and approve the work. Much of what I have to say here is my view and opinion and there is far too much detail to present here as I still have trouble sitting for any extended period. Here in Idaho, anyone can proclaim themselves a "General Contractor" as long as they buy the license that says so from the state. That is unfortunate, because it leads people to believe they are hiring an overall and much educated contractor that is qualified to make that statement. In this case,
He did quite a nice job in the walk in shower, but when he came to the vanity, he fell very short in expertise. I used small river rock on the back splash for the vanity and the grout is full of air bubbles and mis-placement. I did not see most of the shoddy work in the beginning due to my injury and pain.
With the exception of his sub-contractor plumber, the rest of his subs would fall to very incompetent workmen in my view. Most spent
much of their time on their cell phones, as did
turn down their radios numerous times and to 'please get to work' other times.......not something I like to do. This wasnot a professional environment, I was on pain meds, and just too out of it to deal properly. I would have sent many of them packing had I been able to do so. In the end,

Again, this was my fault and I should have nailed down a specific price(s) for the jobs he performed and instead, I just handed him a check during the work when I thought he might be running low on cash. My only excuse was my physical condition and actually, my mental acuity as well. My conclusion is:
He makes a good handyman as long as you are there to 'remind' him of the list.
He is very likable and fun to talk with. He does a fair to good job tiling, but again, watch to see that he performs to your wishes.
Ask him NOT to bring in his cell phone while you expect him to be working.
Nail him down to a written bid and how you expect him to perform (length of time, etc.)
Ask him to spell out exactly the dates for the job and when he will finish.
In the final analysis,
the tile and installed the tile on the second day. The third day he came back and applied the grout. He was so easy to have in
our home. I was sorry to see him leave when the job was finished.
