Have you ever had a problem with a home contractor? You're notalone. A friend of mine paid over seven thousand dollars to havehis roof repaired, only to have it leak the next time it rained.The contractor made excuses, but never did a thing about it -and my friend was an attorney! To make situations like this lesslikely, avoid the following mistakes when hiring a contractor.
1. Not being clear about what you want. When you don't knowwhat you want, you might not like what you get. If you changeyour mind and change the job halfway through, the contract - andprice - will change. Hint: it won't get cheaper. Be clear onwhat you want done.
2. Not getting it in writing. Hearing "I didn't say I was goingto include the gutters," could be a problem, or you could pointto the contract.
