Warning Signs of a Job Going Sour

If you experience any of the scenarios described here, confront your contractor right away. Also, keep good records in case the dispute goes into mediation or ends up in court.
  • If a subcontractor tells you he hasn't been paid or asks for payment directly from you, inform your remodeler about the situation and have him promptly remedy the matter.
  • If a lumberyard or distributor calls you for payment because your remodeler's account is long overdue, discuss the matter with your remodeler.
  • If your remodeler claims he underbid the job and won't work until you agree to pay him more, show him the contract. He's got to eat his own mistakes.
