Herb Symmes doesn't know how to install bathtub

I hired Building Images (Herb Symmes, President) to remodel my bathroom at a five figure cost. He steered me to buy an Americast bathtub (it weighs less than a cast iron tub and therefore easier to install for him) and it creaked all over. Then he tiled in the whole shower area without addressing the creaking. He wanted to drill my subfloor from the basement and shoot foam in there to quiet down the squeaking. I fired him. The new plumber found that Mr. Symmes had failed to install the stringer as support for the bathtub. He merely screwed it into the wall. These tubs will spider crack and flood your house if not properly installed. He took most of my money and won't give me a dime back. Plus he didn't tape the edges of the shower area so moisture could have gotten in behind the tile. Plus he is a yeller and unpleasant to deal with. Don't hire him!!!
