I'm new and i need an opinion from a professional painter.
Basically we had an incident today where we hired a painter who claims to have experience in painting roofs.
however this is a CASH agreement..with no contracts.
The long and the short of it is... he put one leg through the asbestos roof sheet (not the part of the house but the laundry area.)
when he slipped, he dropped a hand held tub of roof paint (possibly acrylic based) it went EVERYWHERE!
on my car also.. took me 1 hour to clean/wash it.. got most of it off...
but the walls on the house need to be recoated.
we had a huge argument when after the job he demanded his payment and DID NOT admit to any faults to rectifying the problem caused and said it was "your roof" .."your roof was already faulty"
is it in our right ..for him to rectify this?
thanks in advance guys
