Hi,

I have a contractor doing drywall work for me (see pics). I feel as though he is doing a terrible job, but when i approach him, he claims these issues will be fixed during mudding. Am I wrong to feel concerned here? I feel like I should stop him and get someone else but I don't know if I'm over reacting.

Thanks in advance for the advice!

haha. This is not a good job. You can do a lot with mud and tape though to make a poorly hung job look decent. But, still, there is no excuse to leave large gaps around electrical. Also, this guy doesn't even know where to break the rock at, etc.

That looks like a job my son in laws father does lmao

That guys a fricken hack, the tighter and cleaner you do the hanging the better the finish will be!!
Throw him off the site now!!!

I had to hire a guy once and his actual name was close enough drywall, I told him he wasn't and there was no need to finish I would stay late and do it !!!

I'm hanging and finishing right now!! It pisses me off when I chip a little by an outlet, I even back cut it too prevent it but I tape them all anyways,

I'm thinking I should specialize after seeing that job ,,

What you should definitely do is..........STOP PAYING HIM!

And stop any checks if you still can. But he probably demanded cash to quickly satisfy his meth habit.

Not to pile it on, but that is not only "not a good job", that is a total effing mess.

Thanks! I knew it! Now how do I get rid of him? Do I need to provide written notice?
That I can't help you with. I've never been run off a job before..:laughing:

I'd say pay him for what he's done so far [you hired him /you eat it]
Then send him on his way.
