The objective of this book is to provide you with a tool that helps to create a mutually satisfactory business relationship between homeowner and contractor.

From the Author:

American homeowners spend more than $100 billion annually on home improvement projects. Unfortunately, according to the National Council of Better Business Bureaus, the home improvement industry ranks third in the list of most problematic and investigated consumer industries.

Hiring the wrong contractor and failing to define a business deal with any contractor can be costly mistakes with disastrous long-term consequences.

The strategies and tools provided in this book are like a suit of armor:If you use them, you will improve the likelihood of avoiding much unnecessary expense and improve the odds that a contractor will meet your expectations.

Good News

The good news is that there are plenty of honest, hardworking, and qualified contractors who will welcome the opportunity to enter into a professional agreement with you.

Helping you to find these contractors and to build that agreement is this book's mission.

I wish you security, peace, and joy in your home.
