That looks terrible, sometimes lowest cost is not always best. I'd rip it out and start over.

I promise it was far from the lowest. I think other parts of the job got away from him so he skimped on the drywall trying to make his money back.

Re: Contractors Standards vs USG Standard

He needs to fix it if he wants to get paid. If you show a judge those pictures he'll rule in your favor.

If a home owner asked me to fix that I would want to start over or I'd pass the job up.
