Discuss what would you do if confronted with this? in the Tiling Forum area at TilersForums.co.uk.
turned up to tile a floor at a customers house and was greeted to this!!
Don't blame you
Tell them you need an other £100. To sort it out!!
Would have done the same
Especially on a Saturday!
So we're they in when you got there?
I would have asked for extra, say £40p.h to sort it. If I walk, I loose days work.
no, just expected me to clean it...
where abouts are you brian? I'm in Prestat
40+ packs of engineered oak would've knackered me out before I started
In that case you have every right to be annoyed and I to would of needed a word with them before continuing
Stuff that, mingers
Was it a customer or the builder ( my bet).
That would be good to normal in my world.
I make it closer to 50 packs .
48 for me!
its Saturday night... and you're counting packs of laminate? rock n roll
Personally I wouldn't walk from a good floor and loose out because of that. At worst I'd ask the client if they'd be happy to pay me for clearing it so I could complete the job for them. It wouldn't take 20mins. If you had to a £20 fee would be enough, I know it's not what we want but would you give up say £4-500 quid for the sake of twenty mins?
Exactly Lee I'm with you, reluctantly just get on with it and let the customer know your not that chuffed with it
Yeah just crack on, had to move a full unfitted kitchen and double fridge freezer TWICE this week to get a dining room done....moving stuff just comes with the territory of tiling floors.
we are all different I suppose... I'm a tiler not a cleaner, it came down to respect and I was of the opinion that they thought they owned me . no please, no thank you. sometimes you have to take a stand and let people know they cant do stuff like this. I went straight onto another job and cracked on.
Spoze if your just getting paid just to stick tiles down by the meter then understandable but after getting up Saturday morning think for half an hour I'd just have moved the stuff, will you be going back if they clear it out for you?
yeah id go back when cleared out.
I helped him out big time telling him the sequence of the job and which trades followed what...he didn't have a clue about the whole thing, just had the money and no clue. oh and a girlfriend that knew everything. sometimes enough is enough
More to it than just a pile of oak flooring then
yeah long storey just text text me saying we have toilet roll holders, mirrors and towel rails to fit. no please or thank you. as I said, don't need it
Please help me. Had my wet room tiled and they've done what's supposedly called an envelope cut but it isn't very aesthetically pleasing and other cuts like that when googled look a lot more symmetrical. Can you give me advice on this? Is it done wrong?
I've got a bit of OCD and would probably tidy that up even if it wasn't the room I was to be working in!
Me too. I've had customers say that my most used tool is my dustpan and brush.
I'm still not sure if that's compliment or criticism?!
If it's still like that on Monday give us a shout won't be able to sleep now!!
I'm sorry but my first reaction to that was an uncontrollable giggle.
Just being honest!
Yeah it's done wrong I'm afraid
this photo is missing from my collection.
sad, very sad
You need to start a new thread..
We can have a laugh at it again...
Always remember a few years ago turned up to tile a kitchen splash back, the units were full. Cleaned it all of, started tiling. At lunch time popped out to get a sandwich. When I got back they had put it all back. Good jobs but not to bright.
