there were make shift doors already in place. what i wanted originally was to make those doors fit better and have a lock placed on them. a pad lock or something would have been fine. it was suggested by bob that the doors be replaced by proper doors (cutting one premade door in half and installing hardware). we talked about it, i was given a price of around $300, which felt like a lot to me since there were already doors there, but i decided to go ahead with it anyway. bob is the contractor who built the place i own, and had done one other job for me, so i trusted him. the job was done and done well. HOWEVER, materials cost $175. $300 for labour. and i still have to paint the doors myself. at one point i went outside with my dog and one of the doors was sitting on a work horse while the 2 guys sent to do the job were sitting in the van. i believe i must have been charged for that time. in reality, the job could have been done in an hour or 90 minutes by one guy who spent the entire hour doing the job and didn't keep going in and out for whatever the reasons were (to sit in the van?). there is NO WAY that anyone can convince me that this job required both 2 guys AND/OR 2.5 hours of labour. i shared my concern with bob but he did not change the price. i feel robbed and cheated. and i will probably be removing the sweeps placed on the bottom of the doors because esthetically they are not pretty (3 of them came in to do that) and the doors are in my front room. i am so disappointed. i wish i could hire him again, but i can't. i will never hire anyone to do a job ever again without a written quote. the b rating for everything but price is related to a couple of things. lack of promptness (he arrived for a scheduled appointment a couple of hours late, by which time i had left my house for another appointment - he didn't reach out to say he would be late). the pricing issue extends into professionalism, though he is a nice guy. in terms of quality, the previous job i had done involved removing draft around 2 doors - one of them was done perfectly, the other one is no better than it was before. some of this could have been overlooked had i been left happy with this most recent job. sadly i was not.
