Barrett of Reiner Tile & Stone didn't show up again today. During the last 2 weeks, he worked a total of five short days. The earliest he showed up was at 1:40PM, and that was on the day where he emailed me the night before and told me he'd be arriving at 9AM. Sigh. I truly don't understand how someone can run a business like this. I get particularly irked when he sends a text to me at around 11AM and says he's "on his way" and still shows up at 2PM. WTF? If Jeff and I had jobs, it would be impossible to work with Barrett because he is so unreliable about showing up when he says he will.
Anyway, the tile is moving along. Here are the photos of the tile to this point.
That is such a bummer. I'm waiting on windows again and still can't get anyone out here about my flagpole. GrrrrReplyDelete
On a good note..the work that has been done looks good.
Agreed. His work is decent, it's just so hard to get it out of him. I wish we had held out for the same company that did our downstairs, but we were in too far financially before we figured out how flaky this guy was.Delete
The bathroom is looking so good but how frustrating it must be. Had gone through the same type of problem. Like you I'm amazed how some people stay in business. Each time I visit I love your home a little more. Just gorgeous.ReplyDelete
Thank you very much. I'm going to be so happy when this bathroom is done.Delete
That is one of the reasons we prefer to do most things ourselves. Worker bees are so unreliable and unpredictable.ReplyDelete
I didn't believe my skill level at laying tile was sufficient for the job, or we would have done it ourselves. If I ever have any future tile work, I'll be going back to using Hawthorne Tile. (At the time, I had asked them for a quote, but they said they were booked up thru the end of the year. We would have been better off waiting for them.)Delete

I got myself in trouble once with tile...I agree. Sometimes you DO have to get someone else. But I prefer projects where I don't have to get anyone else.ReplyDelete
