Question DetailsAsked on 10/10/2017

What are my options if I'm not 100% satisfied with the Angie's List contractor I hired?

In April 2017 I contacted an Angie's List certified contractor about replacing the roofs on my house and 3-car detached garage. I also requested a quote to have the same contractor remove and replace the vinyl siding, soffit, fascia and aluminum window wraps..

My insurance company paid for the removing and replacing of both roofs, along with a few other items. The contractor's total price for removing and installing new vinyl siding, soffit, fascia and aluminum window wraps came to just under $26,000. The contractor has now been paid roughly $23,300 before he starts, which is approximately 75% of the total amount due upon completion. I know, "what was I thinking?", especially since the contract states that payment is due after completion of each phase of work.

After 4 1/2 months, they finally started on 9-13-17 to remove and replace both roofs, which took 3 days. During that time, they removed the old siding, soffit, fascia and aluminum window wraps. Two weeks later, they start

If a paid membership, the highest class has certain guarantees and coverage for imcomplete/improper work by AL contractors - though I am pretty certain that is only if you opbtained their services through an Angies List Deal or maybe Coupon. Contact member Services @ memberservices@angieslist.com for clarification if you have that kind of coverage.


Otherwise, aside from the BIG mistake of letting him get way ahead of you on payments, your explanation got cut off - but basiclaly if he is doing work that is not workmanlike or is falling well behind contractual progress or completion dates, and you are unable to work with him to get him to clean up his act, then you have the right to "call his bond" - filing a claim with his bonding company to have them get another contractor on the job to finish the work.


Generally best to get a lawyer to handle the paperwork - they take it a lot more seriously in that case. He/she can also advise you on your rights to terminatea the contractor and get a replacement one on the job yourself - but seeing you are deep in the holewith this one getting the payments to date back is probably a lot tougher then calling his bond to get completion.


And of course, after all is said and done 9and with attorney review to avoid contradicting any settlement agreement terms) sounds like an appropraite but truthful Review of the contractor posted on Angies List would be appropriate.
