English term or phrase:short change us on mesh
Check for "hold down lugs", erection bolts, gaskets for access openings, insulation anchors, and insulation reinforcing. Many vendors short change us on mesh supplied for stack lining insulation. Either they do not supply enough or the material is a different grade than specified.
Explanation: Short change literally means that they give you change which is less than what you should get when you pay for something. In your context it means that they are not getting the mesh that they wanted/ordered: not enough or of a different specification.
