'违反’

另一对已婚夫妇, 格雷姆戴维斯和瑞秋里奇, 声称已向 Trelawny 支付了 22,800 英镑的前期费用,用于在 8 月份在他们位于 Meanwood 的家中进行类似的阁楼改造.

格雷姆, 48, 告诉 Leeds Live 他觉得 “违反, 被扯掉和生气” 在他与布朗先生和特纳先生的经历之后, 并发现其他客户报告了问题.

瑞秋里奇顾客

这对夫妇一直在与特纳先生打交道, 雷切尔声称她会对她的问题一笑置之,并傲慢地称她为“担心者”.

脚手架在九月上升 7 据报道,工作于 11 月底停止, 除了一名男子在 12 月检查阁楼的防风雨能力 16.

但是当 Graeme 要求给出苛刻的答案并继续工作时, 他说,他一再被告知是新冠病毒造成了破坏.

He said Mr Brown had promised the work would be completed back in October.

The couple covered the gaps in the roof with a tarpaulin but “rain came through and it rained hard”.

现在, every time it rains, they must go up and check no water is coming through the roof.

Trelawny denies any wrongdoing.

Mr Brown said: “I haven’t done anything wrong.

Mr Turner said: “We spent all the money on labour and material through the hard times. The problem was, when we started to run out of money, we started to grasp at other jobs.

We had to pick which jobs we could complete to finish. Naivety, 是的. But criminal? 不。”

I haven’t done anything wrong.

Colin Brown Trelawny Roofing and Builders Ltd.

Asked if the incomplete work was down to incompetence, Mr Turner said: “是的, 是的, yes.”

“The illnesses, the Covid and all the other rubbish, that’s what slowed us down.

Some of the lads we paid twice to do the same job and that was our problem.

Mr Turner said he “struggled” to hire labourers and claimed many were dishonest with him about being qualified joiners or roofers.

He added that “nearly all of them [the loft conversions] 是 45 per cent completed”.

The pair denied scaffolding was put up in homes to “pressure” customers into hiring them and said “no, never” when asked if they left scaffolding on homes never to return.

They blamed a former member of staff for any incomplete work.

Mr Brown vehemently denied that he was aggressive and forceful to customers down the phone to extract payment.

Blaming an ex-staff member if anything untoward had happened in that regard, Mr Brown said: “I don’t get involved in that. I never hassle
people.

He claimed he recorded every conversation and could prove he has never been aggressive to customers down the phone.

The pair denied they inflated prices after a contract was signed.

In the instance where Leanne needed her “floor strengthening” for an extra £5,000, Mr Turner said the floor was “bouncy” and “unsafe”.

He went on to say even though it would cost him £5,000 for the labour and materials, he halved the price but claimed Leanne went “berserk” so decided to waive the added fee in the end.

Mr Brown denied he used Covid-19 as an ‘excusenot to send workers to finish the work.

He said that “every person in my organisation has had it”.
