Good response sir....I gave my roofing to a good carpenter and he did a good job..After commending him, he came back to say "oga give me the tiling, give me pop. he started bidding for window, plumbing, door etc".. i say chairman, your work ends in roofing, oya get out of here.
You just have to be careful with this artisan/engr, dont let them lure you with cheap quotation. God will touch rotechh's heart..
"O tin di gbogbo igba".

I agree, and most of us in the diaspora rely on forums like this because we feel like it’s practiced in the academic world where peer reviewed articles/ journals are regarded as more reliable and reputable in that field ,the forum one would think would have helped sieve out the quacks, fraud etc .
I have learnt the hard way that forums like this actually do little or nothing to guarantee professionalism as the worker would always want to cut corners and telling lies has become a justifiable instrument of their trade . Just do your review in person before hiring any worker off here and do your best to not hire any one living too far away from your building location. I will definitely come back to enumerate my experience with a supposed “professional casement windows” tech I hired for my project off this forum . It’s been 2 months now for a project that started with a 3 weeks delivery agreement and I don’t know when my windows would be completed as agreed .

80% of this so called professionals are no professional. Professionalism exceed how efficient you are with your hand work, how you interact with your clients matters a lot.

Rotech for instance will not even allow you talk as a client, he does 70% of all the talking even when you are the one paying for the call.

I learnt not to allow anyone am hiring here tell me those am a Professional thing, just come work and go pls.

They will be kept in check from now on, just like n3xt isn't allowed to post here until his debts are cleared, anyone found wanting should be made to take responsibility. how can you give someone a job to do and without completing his job, he stops the job to do another work, 2weeks becomes 2months, what audacity!

Am sure his spoken English is exactly the way he writes!
If you've got an Engineering degree or diploma and can't make a good written sentence, for me that's a 'red flag'.
It's either you bought your certificate or you graduated with 'let my people go'.

From my experience work with different clients on various projects I’ve learned a few things to reduce stories that touch :

- always do research and due diligence before engaging anyone for work. Go and visit their former or current projects , don’t rely on pictures.

- get a quote for the same job from a minimum of 3 people. And don’t be afraid to enter market to find out prices

- ask plenty questions because it is your money at risk. A good number of vendors lack integrity and don’t care if you lose $, their only concern is their pockets.

This is key

- As I always suggest to my clients, always get someone to watch your contractors preferably an independent consultant. Like those invigilators during final exam lol if anybody tries to do ojoro they will chop koboko

We have also seen those that can speak good grammar and write very long epistle but yet your name will be 'sorry' if you call them for any job. It is not by the English neither is it by fascinating pictures. Just do your own investigation.

Om this issue of leaking roof...please what can I do to fix my leaking roof? They have already started pop work on it.. It's small holes in the roofing sheet about 3 places... My engineer found the holes and said he will fix it for over months now, now he told them to go ahead with pop work that he will fix it through manhole. If I can buy the material and find someone to fix it, I will be at rest... And a picture I got from the pop guys, I noticed that the gutter is pulling off, I guess by wind... What step should I take concerning the issues with the roof?

Some relatives are very greedy, no matter how much good you do to them.....they want to finish you by all means.


However, Diasporans should do well to their relations too financially, how can you have a relative that barely feeds and find it difficult to provide for his family, yet you don't see it necessary to support him, even if he didn't ask, But you send him millions of naira to build you a house in Nigeria and you expect him not to rip you off.

The bolded worked for me when i did my POP...Got quote from 4 guys, 3 of them from this forum..While there is no much difference in their prices; their measurement was wide apart. That was a "red flag" for me. I knew something was off! So the 4th guy i contacted here on this forum, i fixed a date and we both went there together.. I make sure the measurement was done RIGHT in front of me, me sef i carry calculator and the result, well i saved about 15 square metres for a job that is less than 100 square metre. Except for one of the pop guys, the other three had the same scope of work...After some other few experiences, i just concluded that you the "ABRODIANS" on this forum have spoil all this artisan for us, they want to cheat us the way they cheat YOU!
