screwHave you ever been surprised to find yourself ensnared in a maddening wrestling match with “the contractor from Hell”?  If so, when did you first realize that the situation had spiraled woefully out of control?

Was it the time he stood you up for an important meeting, failing to keep yet another appointment with you?

Was it the time he called you at midnight to seek advance payment for the following day’s work, mentioning something about “labor costs” and “fuel expenses”?

Or was it, perhaps, the time he forgot to set his alarm while napping in his truck, shocking your sensibilities (and offending every respectable bone in your body) upon your first unannounced visit to the property?

Tragically, such frustrating scenarios are far too common in the world of home renovations and rehabbing.  And although many contractors are happy to provide an honest day’s work in exchange for reasonable subsequent payments, it can sometimes seem as though there are ten bad apples for every good apple on the contracting tree.
