FIVE signs it’s time to break up with your contractor:
1) NO CONTRACT: Before starting any project be sure to have a signed contract in place… If a contractor begins your project without one it’s very likely your understanding of what was to be performed may not be completed as expected.
2) MISSED PROJECT COMPLETION DATES: Before you begin your project always be sure to get in writing your start and completion dates so that a common goal is set and achieved.
3) COST OVER RUNS: All aspects of your project should be clearly defined with their associated cost. If there are unknown aspects hidden within walls as an example your contractor should express what risk and cost could be if unforeseen setbacks may be discovered.
4) PERSONALITY CONFLICTS: If your contractor isn’t respectful of you or your property it may be in your best interest to terminate relation before your experience goes downhill too quickly. At the end of your project you both should feel good about your relation and want to do business together again.
5) CONTRACT VIOLATION: Change orders are certainly acceptable providing they are agreed upon by both parties but if the work begins to stray away from what was agreed without verbal or written consent then it may be time to terminate relation. All Change Orders should be noted on contract and the price agreed in writing before commencing forward.
