In an addendum to the previous story, we had an email last night from the contractor.
The carpet fitter didn’t replace the carpet yesterday. As he’s being made to pay for it himself, he wondered if we’d mind if the hall carpet was fitted in two sections. Apparently the carpet does come as wide as we ned it long, so instead of being able to buy a 1.75 piece from a roll, he’d have to buy a 4.5 metre piece. It would be bad, he said, just a join half way up the corridor…..
We said no.
The contractor said “I don’t blame you”
The carpet fitter is a bit miffed.
If you fuck up someones carpet, giving a half arsed replacement is not good enough.
The value of honesty…..
