GEEEEEEEEEEESH, glivingston I agree with Sawkerf, If you got scammed at some point, then shame on you. You did not do your due diligence in hiring a reputable contractor,all you need to do is ask for references, current and several years old. Call those references.

I have been in business for a long time and big job or small I strive for customer satisfaction. Their referral might possibly be my next job and yes it is all about making a buck. In thirty years of business I have had to leave 5-6 customers unHappy. I figure thats not a bad average. It is always about the money, my unhappy customers mostly fell into one of two groups, those with great expectations / little pocketbooks and those that could do it better themselves / but don’t have the time. And after each one of those unHappy customer experiences I would curse myself for taking the job in the first place because usually I had a gut feeling to begin with. Now when I get that feeling I make my apologies and regretfully(yea, right) I can’t do your project.

I have often thought there should be an Angie’s List for contractors to check on customers.
