What you are describing is inadequate project management, not incompetent
professionals (although the cable installer may well have been lazy!).
You need to SPECIFY what you expect, INSPECT what was delivered, and
AUTHORIZE PAYMENT only after the work is completed to your
Afterthoughts and "gee, I forgot about ... " doesn't make it any more in
this arena than it does when you take your car in for a tuneup and
discover "well, we kinda had to replace the transmission AND engine".
If you can't find folks in your immediate area who can do the work to
your specifications, contact Steve or Skip (or anyone else here on the
reflector in that line of work) to schedule the work or assist you in
writing the specs and identifying the appropriate contractor(s).
