Is it time to lawyer up or should I give contractor one more chance? (Main Board)

Lawyering up is generally not worth it.

If they have a habit of doing bad work and stiffing people, they probably already have lawyers.

Do you have a contract with him? Read it. Does it have a mandatory arbitration clause?

Also be careful, the contract may say that you have to pay their legal expenses if you lose. Just because you're right, doesn't mean you will win!

Also, the lawsuit will take years and $$$ and stress, more than the value of the roof repairs.

FSK's Recommendation:

Leave a negative review.

Hire someone competent to fix your roof.

Write it off as a loss and a lesson.

Unfortunately, you can make a more profitable business giving bad service than good service. Most people only replace their roof once, so there's no repeat customers to lose.
