The problem here is how you argue it. It's not so much the "work" but the "design". So don't be put off by them taking offence at you insulting their workmanship (or lack thereof).

They are the professionals (?) and should know and advise you of the implications of every design decision they recommend.

"but this is the work we agreed, sir"

"erm, I agreed that you would construct a 20 square metre rainwater collection device and dump all of its run-off directly INTO the wall of my house, GUARANTEEING damp issues at some point in the future?
I. Dont. Think. So..."
