The windows are not standard sizes as it is an old property. We had several people in to quote before allocating the job. Many other companies would only quote to replace them in their entirety not repair, some just didn't want to do non standard sizes & construction. This person specialises in repairing old, non standard windows.
Everyone else I have spoken to in all trades in the area says a standard day is 7-8 hours
Only what they put in the quote:
'Because of the work being on the first floor, it involves much of the time being spent on a ladder and it isn’t feasible to do more than about 5 hours a day working like this, due to the toll it takes on the body''The cost for a day’s labour will be £200'
BUT I have paid for scaffolding to all first floor windows so they are working off that not a ladder.
I only realised they where 5 hrs days on invoice 6 when instead of charging by the day they put hours on the invoice.
As I said in my last response. The quote said:
'Because of the work being on the first floor, it involves much of the time being spent on a ladder and it isn’t feasible to do more than about 5 hours a day working like this, due to the toll it takes on the body'
'The cost for a day’s labour will be £200'
I'm not there so have just texted a local friend to verify.
Ladders will obviously be used to get on and off the scaffold and between levels but he should have no reason to balance on a ladder to do any work.
Excuse me but I'm not sure you've read my correspondence correctly. I have already answered the questions you are re-asking. I am not happy with this service. I either need a different 'expert' or to get my money back. I certainly am not happy paying for the correspondence I have received to date.
Thank you Alex. Much appreciated.
