What is meant by reasonable payment schedule?

What is a reasonable payment schedule for a job of £9,000?

Should I go with the option of deposit on confirmation of wanting a builder to perfrom this work?

The job is estimated to consume in 3 weeks.

Extra Info: The builder which I was thinking of using has demanded for the following (I feel the 25% deposit is too high):

A deposit which is based on 25% of the total quotation (£9,000) is required on confirmation of the order, and 25% is given at the end of each week based on works completed.

Extra info: The builder is a member of FMB, so I am taking in as he won't run off with the deposit!

Extra info: I see what you are all talking about, but I am a good player, but I guess the builder don’t know this.

Thanks everyone for your advice.
