Roofing Contractor Issue; Question what to do

Page 2 of 2  


Just curious, why did this thead head in the direction fo seeing a local attorney. If he as an agreement for services, and paid for those services, and later(quickly) found out not all services have been done, then he just has to talk to the contractor.
Only after all he could do without legal help, should he even think about small claims court. Plus as a layperson, this would be an open and shut case, right?
later,

My attorney may have better rates than others, but I think the small fee for a initial consolation would be worth the cost. The OP can not get any good legal advice from us since the local laws vary. I do like the small claims suggestion however, at least where I am they even offer a out of court free hearing with some free legal advice (minimal) that may work.

Sorry, it seemed like the 'you don't like his suggestions' threw me off.

Bringing in the law seems like a laast resort. I truely believe he will comply. But the customer must behave like it was a mistake and we all make mistakes, so he gets his roof taken care of, and the contractor can save face.
No like you said, if all fails I would seek small claims. I would get two or more estimates, the orginal invoice/proposal, copies of the checks paid, and photos of the non-existant ridge vent. Now only being a layperson, it seems like a very 'open-shut' case. Which further enforces the idea the missed step was a mistake and will quickly be ratified.
imho,
tom
