Leveling the floor

My general contractor builds a new soffit in the master bathroom above the tub, and properly finishes the end wall framing, attaching it to the joists.

A large batch of self-leveling concrete is mixed ($176.54).

The surface of the existing floor (with new filled drain trenches) is prepared with a bonding agent. The self-leveling concrete is poured into the laundry room and master bathroom.

A worker pours self-leveling concrete from a bucket onto a basement floor.

My general contractor’s work is finished. But before he leaves, he points out that I have another major problem: None of the drywall was primed, and cheap paint was applied directly with a sprayer. It flakes off easily in large sheets.

I also receive an invoice for my general contractor’s labor: $3,880.00.
