My big verandah 8m x 3m was recently changed from a beautiful tiled and level summer retreat into an uneven grey 'lunar landscape'.It has been finished in a liquid plastic product.My next door neighbour and I are not impressed by the total disregard of attention to detail.
After talking to the boss of the company who did the job, remedial work commences tomorrow.I am hopeful that it all will be sorted out in the end.
I am sure this web site will get it sorted out in the end too.
Forum Editor - to fill you in with the details, my verandah was tiled with over 1500 5" x 5" x 1/2" terracotta tiles.About 100 tiles on the edge of the verandah were loose ( due to frost damage over the past five years or so.)The local housing association asked me if it was alright to do a repair involving the liquid plastic finish.The verandah is 1 up and overhangs the main entrance to the building so I reckoned that there was a safety issue concerning loose tiles.All of the tiles have now been removed and a 'decothane liquid plastic finish' has been applied.
The look of the verandah is grey, uneven, the water run-off is non existant...my next door neighbour would give you a more colourful description!I have to fork out £400 pounds.
But as I said, we have made our complaints known to the company involved and remedial work will start this week.
puzzled morddwyd - of course it could have been posted on Consumerwatch but that would also apply to all of the negative responses (answers) that have been aimed at the revamped PCA website.Is there a sit on the fence forum?
Are we not consumers? Yes we are.
Hi there - verandah improvement update.
The question of the water run-off has been resolved by channelling the rainwater down two new drainpipes.This is still in the construction phase.
Today I bought 8 Artificial Grass Mats from Lidl at £5.99 each.It improves the look of the verandah - looks like a snooker table now!. Work continues.
