View Full Version : Question for Contractors

04-20-2011, 11:35 AM
I think we have a few contractors on here... So I'm looking to get some carpentry and painting done on my house. Working with a contractor that I've used in the past. They offered a discount for paying in hard cash. I paid them with a check last time. So my question is, should I go cash or check? If I go cash, I should still expect the same paperwork (receipt, guarantee, etc), right?

Thanks in advance.

Depends on the discount? Make sure you get everything in writing first, guaranty of work and what exactly needs/is getting done. Get all receipts to cover your ass so they can't say you didn't pay and put a lean on your house. Mostly get everything in writing/contract with receipts so you have something to fall back on if something goes wrong.
