Sloppy workmanship

We hired Gifted hands to remove the backyard fence damaged in the recent tornado and build a new one. I thought he was an honest man and would do a good job. He was VERY FAST but did very sloppy work and had an excuse for everything he did wrong. Put the pickets on the inside of the sides and on the outside along the back. His excuse well it keeps people from crawling over the fence in the back. He dug holes put in the fence posts and poured dry concrete into the holes covered with dirt. Was to use a full bag in each hole but sometimes bags would break and he poured what was left in the bag in the hole and covered it. Left gaping holes in the gate area. Side gate was not straight his excuse was there was concrete from the old gate in the way. He should have made adjustments for that but I guess that would have slowed him down and he was always in a hurry to get it done and move on to the next one. Wish I could show some pictures. I made the mistake of paying him $1800 for the labor and he was gone before I had fully inspected the fence. That was my fault should have never given him anything until I had inspected his work. He seemed like an honest man and I trusted him. He did come back to fix his problem by putting pickets on the inside along the back but this only made it look worse. He did not want to take down the 2x4 rails said it would be too hard and he would have to charge me EXTRA. Put a few screws in the gates and pickets then left.I have pictures. There was another problem but do not want to go over that now. Fence still wobbles, hole still exist and gates are not constructed properly and put in place right. This fence will not last. Last fence laster 18 years! VERY unhappy and would not recommend him to anyone.

User's recommendation: NEVER!!!!!
