Dear Angie: How much can I expect to pay to have my wood fireplace converted to gas? Our house is about 30 years old. The bottom of the fireplace looks like it's easily accessed through the basement. The conversion would involve running 30 to 50 feet of gas line. — Thomas M., Cincinnati, Ohio

He hasn't legally abandoned the job as long as he is still showing up and doing something, even if it is very little, from time to time. You'll have to fire him first. Have documentation that the job is not being done in a timely manner, showing when he has and has not worked.

Change the locks and inform the contractor their services on your property are terminated. Tell him if anyone representing his company enters your property they will be considered trespassing and will be prosecuted. Then hire another company to check the work he has done to make sure it is right. Somehow I doubt it is given the nature of his work ethic. Then have the new contractor repair any bad workmanship and finish the job. Keep records as any documented things that have to be redone will help your case against the first contractor.

Rebuilt the chimney from the roof up: The masonry itself is professional. This took a long time to complete due to the long winter and to various excuses (e,g, deaths, illnesses, other jobs started after ours). The scaffolding was left up longer than promised and that annoyed the neighbor who could not use his driveway. Communication on this issue was difficult for all of us.
Concrete cap on chimney: This looks great.
Waterproofing: this went well.
Block cutting and installing a larger glass block window: Glass block looks great, and matches the other glass block windows in the basement.
Epoxy floor:This didn't go so well. The grinder left many semi-circular and circular gouges in the floor which could not be ground out. So the floor is very uneven. Perhaps this was due to the quality of the existing concrete, but I don't really know. Then the epoxy paint he used didn't cover the floor.
Communication: Early on,
Timeliness: There were several delays on the first job, attributed to weather but not entirely due to that, so the job took longer than we expected. Therefore, in the second contract we specified a start date (April 26, 2013) and an end date (May 10, 2013) and a penalty for missing the date. The job was not complete until the end of August, when he came to install the fireplace doors, to complete the
