Hubby actualy came up with the same suggestion a while back. They are going to paint the dp the same colour as the wall when the touch ups are done so we will wait & see what it loooks like and then decide.
You sound so much like us 12 months ago. We wanted answers to everything. In the end we didn't end up with them all, and all we did was delay ourselves. Speaking from exp, I am not sure you will get all the joy you want. Good Luck
at least we have your "lessons Learnt" hear to help us avoid or at least be aware of some of the traps.
Delays do not worry us that much as we can afford to sit in our current house till we are ready to move, we wil not be listing till the 11th hour so hammering the builder till everything is spot on is going to be the way we go.
They have no ide yet just how pedantic, OCD, obstinate, contractual and basically a pain in butt I can be.
hopefully they may learn a few things and get their act together.
Anyway chin up, you will soon be through all of this.
