Thanks ChrisBC,

It will take longer then you think, things won't go smooth, getting materials takes time.

That's what the dude isn't understanding. In many places (including where I live) a homeowner can do most or all such work without being licensed. But there's a whole different set of rules when somebody's paying you to work on their house.

Iím sure this same situation is playing out all over the place back there right now in the wake of Sandy. People are frustrated, homeless and just want to go home.

Iíd imagine that all of the decent local contractors are just swamped leaving only the vultures, storm chasing contractors that may or may not be legal and then family and friends.

Put in that situation, what do you do, wait six or more months or just push forward the best way you can to get back into your home?

Not saying itís right but this is defiantly the wrong time of year to be homeless back there.

Great post Kwikfish, but actually the new housing market has been horrible here for the last few years so there is plenty of good contractors down there. And then there are companies like Serve pro just taking people to the cleaners...hearing $6000 for them to rip 4 ft of rock and insulation...and they dont cut the 4 ft line, they just rip it off the wall till they get about 4 ft up. 3 laborers can do a house a day.
