My question involves a consumer law issue in the State of: TEXAS
I hired a guy who is a contractor for home depot to tile a standing shower. I did not go through home depot he is just doing it as a side job. I am not satisfied with his work. I have gotten a second opinion from a licensed tiler and he said it is in fact a bad job. The job is about 70% done, I don't want him to finish the job because now its going to have to be redone. I have not payed him anything because he said he didn't need payment until work was complete. He said it was going to be 1350.00 for the whole job, materials included, except the tile. Although the cement boards that he used I could tell were scraps from previous jobs. My questions are: Do I pay him in full? Do I only give him partial payment, if so how do i determine how much I pay him? Can he sue me for the rest of the money? Should I just reimburse for materials? Even though they were scraps from other jobs?
