Getting a large deck rebuilt. $42K total. Contractor wants $9k up front for materials, $17k before starting work, $13k once "decking" (top Trex surface) starts, leaving $4K payable upon completion. I'm a homeowner looking to protect myself (and with zero intention of abusing the contractor financially), but understand that the contractor (not knowing me) is looking for a payment schedule most beneficial to him. I have no problem paying for materials upfront, but feel that I should be paying (primarily) upon COMPLETION of milestones (footings, sonotubes placement/filling/code-official approval, ledger, beam installation, joist installation, etc) rather than BEFORE work is done. And leaving only 10% payable upon completions seems way too low. ..... too easy for him to "walk away" if we have a disagreement over workmanship. Notwithstanding my desire to pay upon completion of milestones, I understand that he is entitled to at least sufficient ongoing payments to cover materials and staff/sub-contractor salaries as work progresses. So........... what is (are) typical payment schedules for such a job. FWIT, I'm in New Jersey ...Read More

New JerseyConstruction ContractPrompt Payment
We signed a contract with an estimate cost amount and the work was to begin in June however it was delayed by the contractor and began on 7/11/22. Meanwhile his workers have not performed professionally and the work had to be redone several times, like the sparkling and painting. The first week they started they worked 5 days then four days the next week and then they worked 3 days a week for only 5 hours a day and now as of August they only worked 2 days. We have stressed our concerns and he kept saying that he will do better however after each conversation with him it gets worse. How do we cancel and get our money back for the down payment for the kitchen remodeling that has not began yet?...Read More
