Unfortunately the double doors to the tradesman's entrance had become worn through excessive use so I had to get a man in to fix them. I invited a few local carpenters to inspect my tradesman's entrance and give me a quote for new doors. I went with Roger because he claimed to have been inside several tradesman's entrances, and promised me a tradesman's entrance people would be proud to enter.
The quote I accepted was £1200 fitted. Anyway, Roger completed the job last Friday and I was over the moon with the result. My neighbours have been coming through my tradesman's entrance ever since, claiming it's the best one they've ever experienced.
However, on Saturday I received a text from Roger saying he'd had to spend an extra £250 on the tradesman's entrance as it was larger than he had originally thought. I quickly told him to 'fook off' and pointed out he'd measured my tradesman's entrance so I wasn't responsible for his cock-up. He's become quite aggressive in his replies, his last text threatened to "smash my back doors in" if he didn't get his £250.
I have a written quote stating the price is £1200 so I don't think he has a leg to stand on demanding more money, but what do you think? Have you ever had a tradesman demand extra money after doing a job?
