Is this worktop fit ok?
I am in the process of having my kitchen refurbished. Kept the cabinets but have had the kitchen worktops and kitchen table replaced plus several other things. The joiner had originally said to me that my job would be a 2 day job but on the day arrived with some extra men as he had a bigger job to go to and had decided mine could be sorted in a day. It was really evident that he was getting through it as fast as he possibly could as he pressured me to keep the new sink despite it having a ding in it (I have refused and am waiting for a replacement) plus the floor was not plyed well - I have had to ask him to returm as far too many nails are not flush and are bent which will not be good for the sheet vinyl I am planning to put down. They also left the entire kitchen in a complete mess with sawdust and scrapings and sundry nails and bits of wood lying around.
I am concerned about the worktop edging, the previous edging was smooth and flush with no 'bits' hanging down. This is rough to the touch both top and bottom and has small bits of glue hanging off it in places. I'm also not sure whether the gap between it and the worktop is ok and how it should be.
It doesn't feel or look right to me but I have no knowledge to enable me to judge whether it is an ok job - I am reluctant to complain unnessarily (or anger him unnecessarily) as the plumber still has to fit the replacement sink when it arrives.
The joiner has presented his bill for the joinery part (he now tells me the plumber will invoice me separately which I didn't know but have no energy to argue over. The joiner said he will pay the plumber if I pay him in cash but I do not want to do that as I'd rather have a paper trail in case anything goes wrong in the future. Although he wants me to pay now I plan to pay the joiner's bill immediately after he has fixed any outstanding joinery issues. Is this reasonable? Then I will wait and hope the sink will be sorted by the plumber and pay him after that.
Apologies for the long background story - I guess my real worry is the worktop edging and I have attached photos of that.
