Here is a practical handbook on how to save time, money, and aggravation when working with contractors.

Remodeling your home or apartment isn't a job--it's a war. How do you defend yourself against the hordes of invaders who come into your home, renovate according to the way they want to remodel; decide there's nothing wrong with a hot-water pipe through the middle of the living room; order bathroom supplies that take three months to arrive and then come when the plumber is on vacation?

Outwitting Contractors offers a fresh perspective and invaluable practical information on how to deal effectively with architects, contractors, builders, laborers, and inspectors. It gives you the nuts and bolts of dealing with the process of home remodeling, helps you avoid the many pitfalls that uninformed home renovators encounter, and gives advice on what to do if disaster strikes. Topics include negotiating contracts; determining who's responsible for what work on the site, and in what order the work should be done; making sure that the raw material you ordered is what gets installed; and what to do when the bathtub won't fit through the bathroom door.

An indispensable guide, Outwitting Contractors will save you money, agony, and your house.
