I would say the noise is not excessive loud or prolong. If there is any work we considered noisy the workmen only starts after we finish breakfast at 10 am and must stop before 2 pm which is Check-in time. Generally I would say noisy work do not exceed 1 to 2 hours in total each time and noisy work is not an every day thing, only during the start of refurbishing a room and thereafter probably once or twice a week lasting an hour or two spread out over the day. The normal noise are from sawing wood, nailing floor routine stuff a home builder does. Our workmen (a builder and a plumber) don't work evenings or weekend and only start work after 9 or 10 am.
We are however doing essential maintenance work, reroofing our building being pretty old (1895) but the roofers are not that noisy and they are only working one or 2 days a week. We expect work to finish next week.
The neighbours are retired his Mrs is home all the time and he works part time. They been here a long time and as usual thinks they own the whole street and even object to us cutting down out hedge which is not adjacent to them but facing the main road. They could not even tolerate the slightest of any noise and is very aggressive. He just rant and shout and is impossible to have a reasonable discussion about anything with him.
I would not think they have much money so the threat to make alot of noise on their property is just a threat to our customers. But I feel we should not have to put up with this malicious behaviour we are just going about our doing our business.
