As you know we got the attic drywalled, taped and sanded; plus we got our bedroom ceiling repaired. Anyhow they worked 9am until 4pm, Tuesday through Thursday, three guys. On the Friday it was 9am until 2pm, 2 guys and then on the following Tuesday it was 9am until 11:30am, two guys.
One of the jobs was to drywall the corner of the hip walls, which they haven't done yet. After chasing them about this, I finally got an answer from them saying they will do that job when they come to do the basement. Then when we had a look at the attic, they have missed sanding some of it, and there is a ridge, which is noticeable even in the daylight. So no doubt when I paint it, it will stand out like a sore thumb.
So I called the boss and he finally came around on Monday and had a look at the attic. As he was looking at it, he said words to the effect that he hasn't made a cent on this job, infact he's lost money. Again he will get them to fix the problem when they come back for the basement.
I haven't paid for this job yet, and don't think I should until it's completed..........although I did suggest to dh that maybe I should pay 75% and keep the 25% back until the job is completed. Also it's not my fault they took as long as they did to complete it; thank goodness they quoted us on this job and the basement.
Should I be feeling guilty about them not making any money, and should I pay for the drywalling? I haven't received a bill yet.

It’s only a drip, right? Wrong. One drip per second can add up to 200 gallons per month. So fixing that leaky faucet is definitely worth it, especially if it’s hot water.
