To all that replied , I did my due diligence (apparently not enough) he was known in the community(I checked references) and I got his name from Thumbtack.com....I know the pitfalls, but unfortunately I had to go cheapest route and it cost me......steps will be taken ,agencies will be notified and a criminal complaint is in the making....my sister is a pitbull lawyer, may not see my money , but u dont want her on your ass as she will make your life miserable......this loss has made it impossible for me to get a roof at them moment....but in all honesty I only need roof on the garage(single layer 35 years old) ....house roof is 3 layers and seems to be ok for the moment...but my plan was to have them done at the same time....full disclosure I only have to spend 1/3 on major repairs so brother and sister will help me absorb the loss...............................eventually..LOL .....thanks again for all the replies...

TennX,
Sometimes you can do all of the right things and still end up with the brown end of the stick. Sorry brother. Good luck with recovery of funds.

@TennX , sounds like you did all YOU could do. Sometimes, even when you do your best, it doesn't work out. Sounds like your lawyer sister will get him taken to the cleaners, whether you get your dough back or not.

You might consider doing like we did, and get a metal roof installed. It would save the cost of removing the 3 layers on the house roof, which would have been $1800 for us, since they can just install it over them, and they could do the same on the single layer garage, too. It made the cost end up about the same as doing the whole thing with shingles, but a LOT better in our weather. We had winds take the shingles off the attached garage roof 3 times before that. No more, though!! I also think it looks nicer, too. It's up to you, though, being your house in your area. Something to think about, though.

That sucks.
Police aren't going to help.
If you have his name and know where he stays, and you would be good with getting 20% back from this cat, I could maybe get that much back for you (after recovering the full amount and minus my "fee").
Give him 30 days and PM me.
Memphis ain't but a day ride and a one-night hotel stay. Two tops---if he has to get a loan from family.



I jest as I am retired, but I'm sorry to hear you got taken, brother. Small claims court doesn't cost much and if he has any money, you might do some good there. But not with the police. I wasn't kidding about that part. They won't care and any time you spend with them is time wasted. On an issue like this, I mean.

Good luck.

I agree with jammerwalker above saying the BBB, that can't hurt if he has a business name/entity. And there is always small claims court, but there is nobody else to report it to, Spike.

Some of the television stations will get involved to prevent other people from getting ripped off. Call and ask..

Best idea of the lot. They have those "consumer alert" reports here where they dog some clown, so if you could get them to take the story and pester him, that's probably the best outcome possible. Show his face, etc.

Whenever I use someone to do work around my house that I don't know I take a picture of their vehicle, license plate, and them. it keeps them honest and have them sign a contract.
