You're probably wondering why a contractor would reveal any secrets to the opposite side. Why would anyone write another book on how to hire a contractor, when there's already plenty of them on the market today?

Do we really need another book about hiring contractors?

I believe that we do, because I’m not happy with the books available on the market today. Most non fiction writers try to make better products and organize information more efficiently, for their readers. If the newer books are better, it won’t be long before the older ones get replaced.

By sharing my knowledge as a contractor and some of the problems I've had in the past, with my readers, I think I can eliminate some of their concerns. I believe that I can solve some of their problems, before they happen.

I want to teach you how to avoid problems and hire good contractors that you can work good with. Good Contractors that you'll build a lifelong relationship with and put an end to the con artists.

By providing you with information about other contractors I've worked with in the past, you should be able to develop a clear picture in your mind of the exact type of contractor you need to work with. Then we'll learn how to compare estimates and manage the project.

It won't be long, before you’ve hired the contractor and completed your project without any problems.

Where do I start… I finally get to talk about myself. Before I build myself up and do something remarkable, I would like to thank you for your support. Every book that's purchased, allows my family to eat another meal or put 1 gallon of gas in my truck. As long as gas stays below $5.00 dollars per gallon.

I started working in construction when I was a teenager and it wasn't long before I was a journeyman carpenter, building homes with my father who also worked with his father. By the time I was 25 years old, I had enough experience to build an entire house on my own.

It might not have looked as good as some of the other homes being built, but I was well on my way to becoming a master home builder. This was also the year that I received my contractor’s license and became a General Building Contractor.

I couldn't wait to start doing work on my own and within a few months after receiving my contractor’s license, I was advertising in our local mailer. The phone started ringing and I finally received my first job. Compliments of a custom home who didn't build the home properly.

Before long, I found myself building room additions, remodeling homes and of course fixing the damage from inexperienced contractors and do-it-yourselfers. Remember the old saying, you can pay me now or pay me later, that you heard from your parents, well I was the one who usually got paid later.

The 30 years I've spent working in construction, has taught me a lot about building and the 24 years I spent as a contractor, taught me a lot about people. In this book, you get the best of both worlds. My construction and contracting experiences have provided me with the knowledge, my skills as a writer, will put everything into perspective.

I've seen almost every scam take place before my eyes or read about them in the newspapers. I’ve worked with talented, efficient, pleasant, moral, dependable, honest people and I’ve worked with their opposites.

I've met and worked with Christian contractors who convinced me that they were some of the sweetest people on the planet. Until there was a problem and their evil little horns popped out of their head and started swearing and threatening other contractors and even their clients.

I've worked with aggressive contractors who enjoyed pushing everyone around and taking advantage of everyone they met. They would even brag about their last victims wit
