Whenever you hire someone to do a home improvement project or yard work never pay the full amount upfront. Get an estimate in writing and pay no more than half upfront and then half upon completion. Even if you are hiring a family member or a friend, never pay the total amount upfront. It will insure that the worker is motivated to do the job the way you want it done.

We had major work to do to our new home when me moved in. Let me tell you we had our work cut out for us, but we sat down and made a to do list of everything that had to be fixed. We did the list one at a time. The floor was the hardest to do, but we did it last, and it all worked out.
