Very Bad Sheetrock and Paint Job
This job can be fixed, no matter how bad it is. I say this because over the years, we have had many a DIY Home Owner call us in to fix (Go over) the self attempted 'taping' and coating part of drywall. I have seen some really, really BAD jobs and thought: "I don't know if we can salvage this thing...."
But, when we were done, wow....I couldn't believe the difference.
The key is that: The guy you hired CANNOT fix it because, he obviously does not know how to fix it. If he did, it would not look the way it does. Taping is a specific trade talent. It is something that takes years to get right. The average carpenter's taping skills look NOTHING like an experienced taper's skill/work.
Sadly, you may end up having to take the hit on this one and call an experienced drywall taper to fix it properly. Wavy or whatever, an experienced taper can fix anything. We have and still are called in to fix some real ugly stuff.
If he can't fix this, which I know he can't:
Don't fret, make some calls around. One way to get a good deal is to tell them that you have other projects in the future planned and if they can help you out with this, then......(Hopefully you do, so you don't end up lying about that part)
PS - Suggestion: You could have the repair guy write up something about the workmanship. Then call the original guy and show him that you have something in writing that states the work was very poorly and improperly done and demand a refund of XXX amount of dollars. If he has a little integrity, maybe he will refund some...worth trying...
-My 2 cents-
