Great Advice, and some really dumb homeowners
5 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay everyone knows the story, something happens to a house and Mike and company come in and fix the problems.

Does he go out of his way to make the previous contractors look bad? Nope they do an excellent job all on their own. What Mike does however is teach people as he is fixing the problems.

Some of the homeowners it is really tough to feel sorry for, I mean if the contractor starts to ask for certified checks made in their name, or they don't have you sign a contract (contract-OR hello) then you need to be taken for every penny.

One thing I love is that Mike shows that the judicial system will actually protect the contractor regardless of negligence. One would really hope that a contractor who fails to get the required permits would be sanctioned in some way, but NOPE, it's the homeowners responsibility to get them. So when a contractor tells you that you don't need them, then it's your a** if you don't have them.

My brother-in-law was having work done on his house, a kitchen remodel, just so happens that down the street a house was having some work done on it. The building inspector was driving by saw the work being done, took a quick peek and viola, NO permits. He (my bro-in-law) was hit with fines and a cease and desist order until the permits came through. Other than being fired from the job, nothing happened to the contractor.

When he tried to sue the contractor, the court basically tossed the suit. Homeowners responsible for getting permits.

My grandfather was a contractor for over 50 years the best advice he gave me was, you have to know who to call for what you want, there is no contractor who can do everything. Sure in little projects they can do the small stuff, but with remodels, if they are the only ones on the job,something is seriously wrong.
