I’m a disabled military veteran. I was medically retired and put my house on the market. A hard freeze broke a water pipe and I paid a recommended contractor to fix the damage and replace all interior plumbing. I paid part up front, more at 50% and more when plumbing was about to be done. The contractor took my kitchen sink, tore out cabinet doors and made a mess. He then disappeared. It was so much money for me I tried for two years to find him. I had no way to watch the work due to my physical issues. I tried to get neighbors help but it did not work. I went with someone my realtor had dealt with before with good results.
