A couple of months ago I refused to do a block wall/patio job for a neighbor. The job was just to much for me and I've only done one block wall about 9 years ago. My neighbor received 3 quotes 15k, 23k and 30k. They went with the 15k guy.....he was looking forward to working with this stone/block because he never worked with it before! My neighbor told me he said this! I warned her on the low quote and the comment about his experience with the block but they went with the guy. To my question..... I noticed they backfilled the wall that stands 5-8' high with stone dust (thought this required crushed stone?) and there are no visible drains coming out of the wall. There should be drains correct? I couldn't believe there were none. I didn't want to come across as ripping the company and the neighbors seemed happy with the job, so I kept my thoughts to myself. It has taken the company 2 weeks and they are still not finished.
