Dealing with Contractors
Be mindful of the risks involved when you engage a contractor for a specific job.

We live in a world where one needs the help of others to get many things done. There may be a need to repair or renovate the house one stays in, or to fix certain items in the house.

Hence they may approach each other with caution. Should money be paid first or the work done first?
