Concrete patio disaster - HELP!
Okay, so we saved up our pennies for a concrete wrap-around patio. I did my research on contractors, the stamping, the integral color of concrete, etc. Since there was so much of the patio to be done, it was poured on a number of days, yesterday being the last and BIGGEST POUR. Also the most important location, the main part of the patio where we'll entertain and enjoy our space.
The PROBLEM. The concrete truck ran out of concrete, the contractor ordered more, when it arrived it was the WRONG COLOR integral concrete (it's DARKER). Instead of refusing the new material, the contractor poured the concrete (maybe he didn't realize it until too late, I'm not sure). ANYWAY, the concrete supplier wants to be paid for the extra material, the concrete contractor wants to be paid to fix the color with stain and I want the patio that I ordered and expected!
Any ideas? My husband is threatening to have the patio jack-hammered out and re-poured to our specifications. I'm willing to comprimise and have the contractor stain the entire thing to match, but I feel badly that he'd have to spend yet more time fixing the supplier's mistake.
