    Level and square are two (2) minimums to be adhered to by all contractors.
    Your photos indicate otherwise. I understand that Texas is more a country then a state where mistakes are often "buried". It is your choice to accept and correct or to bring in the big guns to bring this contractor down.

    I have seen a few where the owner tried to recoup the money that was wasted. The court and the lawyers with their engineers were eager to take some money from the owner in exchange for a worthless judgment.

    Anyone that would do this work is likely lawsuit proof. On the other hand the lout might have assets.
