MY BATHROOM FLOOR ABSORBED WATER DUE TO A LEAK FROM THE TOILET

WHICH STARTED THE WOOD TO ROT.WE CALLED A PLUMBING CONTRACTOR

FOR A ESTIMATE TO REPAIR FLOOR.CONTRACTOR INFORMED US THAT HE

HAD TO REPLACE THE SUB FLOOR APPROXIMATELY 3 FEET SQUARE INTO

BEDROOM CLOSET.HE HAD OUR PERMISSION TO CUT THE WALL BEHIND THE

TOILET.HE THEN TOLD US THAT HE NEEDED TO PRESERVE THE WOOD HE

WAS PUTTING IN BY CHEMICALLY WOOD TREATMENT.HE ALSO SAID THAT

THE WALL HE CUT WOULD BE REPAIRED.HOWEVER HE NEVER TREATED THE

3 FEET SQUARE WOOD SUB FLOOR,HE DID NOT PATCH THE WALL,HE DID

REPLACE THE TOILET BUT LEFT THE OLD ONE IN OUR YARD FOR US TO

DISPOSE OF IT.I HAVE NEVER KNOWN A PLUMBING CONTRACTOR WHO LEFT

MATERIALS HE REPLACED FOR THE HOME OWNERS TO DISPOSE OF IT.HE

GAVE US AN ESTIMATE OF $500.HOURLY PAY WAS $50 WHICH HE WAS AT

MY RESIDENCE APPROXIMATELY 6 HOURS TOTALLING $300 WHICH HE WAS

PAID FOR THEN HE LEFT US A BALANCE OF $335.00 WHICH TOTALLED

$635.00.I DO NOT FEEL WE SHOULD PAY HIM ALL OF IT BECAUSE HE DID

NOT DO EVERYTHING HE SAID HE WAS,LEFT OLD TOILET IN MY YARD FOR

ME TO DISPOSE OF,HE NEVER PATCHED THE WALL HE CUT.WE PAID HIM $235.00 HE SAYS WE OWE HIM $200.IT COST ME $40 TO DISPOSE OF THE

OLD TOILET,WE HAVE TO DO THE REPAIR OF THE WALL WHICH IS $40 SO

I FEEL I DO NOT OWE HIM THE $100 BUT HE MAKES THREATS OF PUTTING

A LIEN ON OUR PROPERTY.IS THERE ANY ADVICE YOU CAN GIVE ME.
