I’ve had my plumber install a replacement tub in one of my homes where the old one was cracked and leaking. In completing the replacement the plumber did a bit of damage to the sheetrock around the tub. He said it was hard to get into place without having to remove the toilet, etc., and that the walls were not square to set the surround. The new tub surround also is a little smaller than the one that was there, so it needs some touch-up paint around the edges.
My question is, who pays for this sort of repair and paint/trim? My plumber is saying he got me a great deal on the tub surround and saved me money, even though it is a slightly smaller and we now need to paint a bit. So are these finishing costs on me or on him?
