Delayed home renovation projects can be a huge pain. These situations force us to take drastic measures that we might end up regretting in the long run. A homeowner in San Antonio TX shares his experience as he reported his delayed house renovation project to, demanding either a refund or completion of the long overdue house project:

 Martinez gave Munoz an estimate of $2300 for materials and labor. Munoz agreed to let Martinez do the work, which started right away.

Martinez was first given $500 to buy stone and mortar, which he did. Next, Martinez poured a new foundation for the rock walls. As soon as the cement dried, Martinez began laying the stonework.

Munoz said he was impressed with the rate at which Martinez was laying the stone.

At the end of one day, Martinez told Munoz he would need more money to buy supplies. Munoz said this happened several times, until he had given Martinez roughly $2000 out of the original $2300 price tag. That, according to Munoz, is when the problems began.

Munoz said Martinez stopped showing up. Only two walls had been partially built, and despite numerous calls, Munoz said Martinez would not go back.

No-show contractors are extremely annoying. This rather common scenario can actually be avoided by a lot of homeowners in order for them to save not only their time, effort, and money, but ultimately their house as well.
