We were shocked to learn that the general contracting industry has experienced a bad reputation at times! Seriously though, we all know a story about someone who hired a contractor who was all or some of the following: dishonest, not licensed, underinsured, untalented, incompetent or just simply indifferent to their clients' needs. Every industry has their share of these types. One of our clients, prior to hiring Split Rock, hired a contractor who demonstrated all of the above traits. Our client, a dentist by profession, hired the least expensive contractor and planned to renovate his medical facility during the week of vacation he had planned several months in advance. An unlikely success story from the start. Needless to say, things did not go well at all and so the many months long saga and disruption to his business began. Once hired, we renovated his office during the evenings and on weekends and were finally able to deliver the result our client expected. Unfortunately, this renovation cost him much more money, time and business disruption than he ever expected. Split Rock was happy to accompany him in court, testify on his behalf and help him achieve the maximum remedy available to him. Cheaper can often be the most expensive option there is!
