Work Description: Master Bathroom Shower Re-tiling for shower leak repair
Comments: Basil, although initially pleasant, has very poor workmanship skills. Tiles were not evenly spaced and were seated at varying depths. All tile edges that were cut were jagged in appearance and were then covered in a silicone caulk with grout to hide the mistakes. The finished edges had gaps greater than 1/4inch that he also covered in silicone grout caulk. The poor quality of workmanship was brought to his attention, his demeanor changed and was so unpleasant that we had to fire him from the job. It was also clear to us that he would never be able to fix the problems that he had created; in our opinion, he does not possess the skill level to accomplish this task . We subsequently had to hire someone else who had to remove all of Basil's work and re-do the entire job costing us another $4000 to fix his mistakes. This new contractor stated that this was the second worse tile job that he had ever seen in his 32 years of tiling. It goes without saying that we DO NOT recommend Basil for any tile work.
