I could not believe the incompetence of these people.
Our general contractor that we hired to put in addition on our house turned out to be a dud. At first we thought that he was gonna do a really great job, but then he just kept dropping the ball on all kinds of things. Everything seemed to be coming in late, and the materials that he needed were never in the right place at the right time. He also refused to keep us updated on the timing of things, and there was a huge mess everywhere. Worst of all, his crew did not seem like they were two worried about getting our job done. I guess that’s what happens when you pay by the hour instead of by the job! Anyway, we finally got fed up with it and we fired them when we found out that they had completely forgotten to install the ductwork to connect our current HVAC system with the addition. This was not something that could be fixed, and there was absolutely nothing that we could do about it. We had to have a heating and cooling system in the addition. I could not believe the incompetence of these people. However, they had already done all of the finished work in the house, and he did not want to have to mess up the ceilings and the walls to run ductwork at this point. Luckily for us, we found a really great HVAC contractor who talked us into installing a ductless mini split heating and cooling system instead. With it, we didn’t even need any ductwork at all.
