what to do when constructional work's been poorly done+poorly supervised by present manager?
My parents invested in a motel, assigned his "friend" to supervise the construction coz they live away. when I came to check on progress,(the building process spanned for 2-3 years, but is half way done now) I found the construction quality is not acceptable. 1) The friend gave the bathroom tiling job to a plumber who's seventish yrs old, did a poor job on aligning the tiles, some tiles' not even flat that I got worried about customer's safety. 2) the friend bought whole sets of super-ugly cheap toilets(unused), and told me can't return it because we've bought it for over 1or2 yrs, and it was on a special 1/2price. 3)about sound proof, tested onsite myself with normal volume radio, eventhough it's unfurnished empty room with carpet only, I can still hear radio from next room. The friend said it should be alright when all furnished, I asked for optional solutions he said nothing can be done. what can I do to correct this mess with limited budget?I have more problems than these here...
