Do it right the first time! Poor finishing and attitude!
At the end of a successful reno., nearly everything had gone well and then KAS electrical came and did a rushed job with a "she will be right attitude" that caused us much stress. Most of their unseen work was (hopefully) done ok as everything works but the finishing was sub-standard and the builder had to fix the electrician's mistakes. The attitude seemed to be that the customer is wrong and KAS didn't need to clean up or fix the finishing issues they made - some persist to this day (and the after the job support comes down to "you fix it you...rself"). Apart from multiple patch-ups on a power outlet that had been cut thoughtlessly in the wrong place and cost me money with the painter having to repatch it twice (due to imprecise communication by the sparky about what he would do) the finishing issues remedied by the builder (not the electrician) included: - gouged and poorly patched hole (with silicon, larger than 10x2cm) near a fan mounting; - aforementioned fan needing to be removed as they didn't check if the fan and remote transmitter would work together before gouging the roof and calling me "[swear word removed]" for wanting the hole fixed. He said that he would be happy with that standard of repair in his house; - 3 downlights with plaster hole cut softly too large; these had to be replastered and painted by the builder who agreed that the sparky should have fixed all of these small issues. Currently we need to repaint the whole ceiling around one of these as there is still a slight mis-match with the original paint colour; - small marks on some walls near light fittings that have had to be painted over by the owner; - bulging power point plates (they did fix about 6 or 7 of these after being asked); - kitchen downlights not measured in-line and spaced out of alignment (had to be moved): - power point plates that weren't straight or level with others nearby; - LED light transformers left with sub-standard mounting plate setup (and hole-saw through cupboard wall) that had to be upgraded on request;
