What you describe here sounds as if the job was not performed correctly. Have you paid this person in full? And this was a written agreement? How long ago, please?
Yes, I have paid the individual in full.
I was provided a quote via email: pressure wash trim , scrape & sand where needed. Prime bare wood areas where needed. Caulk any gaps where needed. Apply 2 coats of finish paint on all trim on house, touch up body of house where needed. (Copied/pasted from email)
The work was done just last week.
I suggest that if the job is not to your satisfaction as per the terms of your agreement, then you need to immediately let the contractor know.
I suggest you need to have him come back and look at the work and allow him an opportunity to get it right
With that being said, I suggest you can call or email him and let him know you need an immediate response about this matter
In the meantime, it is imperative that you also send him a certified letter with a return receipt requested stating the same thing -
In the conversations, email, and letter you will want to state that you will hire someone else to do it correctly and they will be responsible for that cost.
Now, you will have the option of doing just that or taking this person to small claims court and getting your money returned.
So you also will want photos of the work as it now stands
