Reno Nightmares To Watch Out For
Contractors Going Bankrupt In The Middle Of Your Renovation
According to thestar.com, if a contractor goes bankrupt part of the way through the renovation, the homeowner is unlikely to get their money back. It is an even bigger problem if the contractor has hired out sub-contractors to do some of the work such as electrical or plumbing and they haven’t been paid. The homeowner may have to pay them out of their own pocket.
Make sure you choose a contractor that has been in business a long time and has a solid reputation in your community. Graham’s & Son has been in the interior design business for over 40 years. We are a well established, locally owned and operated business which has a solid and loyal customer base. Contact us today if you are planning to remodel or renovate.
Contractors Misrepresenting Themselves
According to an article in thespec.com, a contractor in Ancaster, Ontario is facing charges relating to fraud and the abuse of the bankruptcy process. The contractor claimed he was licensed with the City of Hamilton, however, he was not. Further, he posted pictures on his website of a custom home he claimed his company had built. The contractor made a contract with an Ancaster resident to build a garage. It is alleged that he received 40% of his fee in advance. The remainder was to be given after the foundation, walls, and roof were completed. Before the walls were up and the roof was on he demanded the remainder of his fee and ceased work until he received it. You can read the full story here.
Make sure you know the contractor that you are dealing with. Do your research to ensure that their credentials are real. Talk to previous clients if you can. If you are looking for a reputable company to handle your next renovation project, contact Graham’s & Son. We are well known in the Tri-City region because we have been in business here for more than 4 decades. Our customers are glad to give us a good reference.
“Wonderful service. We recently renovated our family room. Purchased blinds and custom drapery. Matthew provided an in-home consultation. He brought samples and had creative suggestions to help me choose the best window coverings to finish our room. Installation was very professional as well. I am so pleased with the finished result. Thank you Matthew and staff. I will recommend you to friends and family.”
