The contractor is friendly and offers suggestions to keep a project within budget and looking very nice. Very positive beginning however, the job wasn't properly estimated. The cost was revised twice leading to paying double the original estimate. This happened once the project had already started.
Communication wasn't consistent or reliable. The work ended up being rushed.
The majority of the job got completed but the last finishing touches did not. The contractor said he would return to complete these but has yet to secure a date weeks after he was last on site.
Overall experience was not positive.
