How much should i pay?

Hired contractors to renovate home and paid 20k upfront. Job was 95% done however, it was unsatisfactory and down right embarrassing. No contract was signed but an invoice was made and money was given to him. I fired him after several deadlines were missed and hired a new contractor to fix all his deficiencies. On his invoice $25,000 is owing. I have pictures and videos of all his deficiencies. Some parts of the job look amazing but there are so many deficiencies some are impossible to fix and the ones that get fixed delay the date even more. After firing how much should i pay

Instead of paying him more money, you may claim a substantial sum for the damage done by his poor workmanship instead. Get all the photographs reviewed by an expert in related area and request him or her to testify as an expert in court. Create a timeline of errant unprofessional behaviour. If property managed, this civil suit has a reasonable potential for and/or prospect of success and you can claim costs of expert testimony from the workman.

However, please review the contract carefully as the terms of the contract govern the entire work relationship and ranks paramount.
