The first contractor's tactic

I found something mistake about pilling works. My engineer designed the pile in friction pile system. There are 2 types of piles in the market. Physically, they are same appearance but the difference is steel frame inside, welded joint and wire binded joint. The weld type is cheaper and weaker. It's easy to break up when preesing down to the ground.
My contractor said he used the wire binded type piles but when I visited site yesterday I found that they were not. All they were welded joint.
Contractor compensated me by decreased the others price items.
