Usually a contractor would have no problem with doing more work - but you need to talk to him about whether he will do at same hourly rate or if will be a regular rate, and of course you need to get scope of work ironed out so you have a contract - scope and amount - spelled out. Usually a contractor would just count the Deal as a prepayment equal to the first two hours labor on the invoice.

I apologize, but I'm not quit sure what you mean. Do you mean this in regards to a Big Deal purchased through Angie's List? I apologize for the extra step, but if you can please provide some clarifying information, I will be happy to help!
