So your contractor has bailed and left you with an unfinished project. You’re angry and frustrated, but don’t worry, there is a way out of this mess. It might take some time and effort to get the job done right, but if you follow these steps, you’ll be able to find a new contractor and finish your project in no time. As a contractor ourselves, we’ve had to take on our fair share of project cleanups after other contractors abandon ship, and it’s hardest on the homeowners. Here’s what we recommend doing step by step:
Step 1: Take an Inventory of What Has Been Completed
If your contractor has left before completing the project, it’s important to first assess what has been done so far. Look around at what’s been finished and make a list of any tasks that still need to be completed. This will give you a better idea of what exactly needs to be done so that when you go on the hunt for a new contractor, you can pick someone who specializes in exactly what you need.
Step 2: Check Your Contractor’s References
Before doing anything else, it is essential to double check your current contractor’s references. Speak with former clients they’ve worked with in order to determine whether or not they have had similar experiences working with them. If their references are all positive, then you may want to consider giving them another chance instead of finding someone new. However, if their references are bad or non-existent then it’s best to move on and look for another contractor who can finish up the job for you.
Step 3: Find a New Contractor
Now that you know what needs to be done and which contractors are reliable enough for the task, it’s time to start looking for someone new who can complete the job correctly. Start by asking friends or family members if they know anyone who could help out with this type of project or consult local business reviews online to find suitable contractors near you. Be sure to look into each potential candidate’s background as well as read customer reviews so that you can make an educated decision on who would best suit your needs when it comes time to hire them.
Nobody likes having their projects taken over by another contractor after their original one bails out on them midway through completion – but unfortunately it happens more often than we’d like! Taking inventory of what has been completed so far, checking references from past clients as well as researching prospective candidates are all great ways that homeowners can ensure they’ll find someone qualified enough for the job quickly and efficiently without having too much hassle along the way! With these steps in mind plus proper due diligence before hiring anyone, homeowners should have no problem finding somebody capable of picking up where their old contractor left off!
