Good Afternoon

If you ask them to do a certain job and they do not they are liable to repair it.
They may not want to charge you but they have to fix it.

They cannot charge you for what they have done because it is wrong but you have a right to have the work done properly and the work they have done removed. You have a contract and both of you are bound to comply with its terms.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
