Turns out that my sister recently used one in the area...unfortunatley there are too many bad apples in the business (but not all).
the latest item is that he bouced a few checks and is blaming me for late payment to him. My last payment to him was upon completion of the roof, I didn't pay him as soon as he asked for it because I had a list of unfinished framing and roof issues. I paid him after much of the list was completed, but as a matter of fact, the ridge vent has still not been completed, they did north of the chimney, but not south of the chimney.....I paid them in good faith (my mistake).
Anyway, they now say they must discuss the next steps with me, I gave them the check on March 29, and they worked the next day, but thats it.
Whats left is completion of window installation (they bought replacements for new const. and installed them wrong.), siding of the second floor and a checklist of odds n ends
our contract called for 4-6 weeks completion, with a 1% penalty for each week over, we're in week nine now
if the aren't back to work tomorow, i'd like to replace them and bill them for any amount i must pay the new builder over thier final payment. plus, i would go after them for 4,000 worth of damages they caused to my house and property.
but i dont want to sue them, they could easily be done in 2 days.
