Home improvment hell

My parents had some vendor relocate the water heater to the outside and re-pipe the house with copper. They did a shitty job and it didn't pass inspection. They are offering to fix it so it passes inspection but my parents are frustrated with them becasue they took twice as long to do the job and did a shitty job at that. My parents don't want to work with them anymore and don't want them on the property. We are going to find out how much it would be to fix the crappy job and deduct it from the first vendors bill. Has anyone been in a similar situation? Do you think this will work?

It might as longs as they didn't sign a contract with the fist contractor.
Sound like this might go to small claims court.

consult an attorney.

the problem your going to have with your plan is the guy offered to fix everything. If you deny him the oppurtunity to do so then your still responsible for the charges.

Sometimes sub contractors are SHIT and going with the lowest bid will cost you more $ in the long run. Always go with peeps that you heard of and/or go with peeps that come with referrals

always check their references and call other people that they have done work before and if that can't happen then ask them for their insurance and liablility insurance and their bonding company before they do ANY work in your home.
