This project was a complete nightmare. In the spring of 2013 we hired Dan to redo our old bathrooms. He ended up only partially completing one bathroom after taking a 60% deposit for the entire project (both bathrooms). Hi workmanship was terrible and I had to be watching him all the time. He is capable of good work but if you were not standing over him he would take short cuts and do sloppy work. For most of his cuts he used a grinder instead of a tile saw because it was faster. Problem is that it leaves ragged edges and cracks tiles. Lots of material was wasted. Tiles were sometime 1/8 of an inch different in level to adjacent tiles. He used the wrong size of tile edging that was too large. He ordered a different granite than we had specified for the counters - we even gave him a sample and the exact name of the product... they were also drilled incorrectly for the taps, one was the wrong size and was also finished on the wrong edge. The replacement window was a foot taller than it was supposed to be and was a dead loss. We ultimately got another contractor to finish the job and he was amazed at the hourly rate ($70) we had paid and also advised us that it was inappropriate to ask for so much up front. When I asked him to fix mistakes he pried the tiles off with a screwdriver chipping the edge. He then put the chipped tiles back when I wasn't watching him...and they are now very visible. We also had a pile of tiles in the garage that were a different dye lot. We labelled them clearly - Do Not Use... he used them and we can see the difference from one wall to another in our ensuite. Save yourself a lot of stress... Avoid this contractor like the plague.
