How does one find help for someone screwed over by a contractor. I'd be willing to share more details on a more private way.

Contact your town or county consumer affairs department or district attorney consumer frauds division or equivalent.

HGTV isn't going to come to your rescue. Chuck's advice is solid.


General Disclaimer

Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.

I am not an employee of HGTV, nor is anyone else that posts here.

My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Building Inspection in your County is the one that handles all contractors licenses, and complaints, Call them up and request the information that you are seeking.
