  1. Sorry, the original builder used a scaffolding company to put it up as they have an account with them. They said they would leave it up for the new builder to use, my issue is whether the scaffolding company would be happy with that arrangement etc. But also the new builder wants it removed so they can put their scaffolding up instead. I asked for a refund of scaffolding costs from the original builder but he refuses as he insists their scaffolding can be used.
  2. The first builder who never completed the job did put it up through a scaffolding company yes. I believe insurance has a lot to do with it if the new builder just used it and something happened such as an accidental without the scaffolding company being aware that their client was no longer using it.

The cost of another scaffolding is quoted at £1500 from the new builder. I just want a refund of the current scaffolding costs including VAT.
  6. Hello. A builder started a two week job on my house on 4 May, to date it has still not been completed. This is due to the originals works were unsatisfactory which was exterior carpentry and plastering of my house. Things were missed and the carpentry was sub standard. The builder decided to rip it all out again and now cannot provide anyone to restart and complete the job. He told me he couldn't find anyone and asked me if I could ask my builder neighbour to sub contract to him to do the works.
