If so, they will likely punish the company, maybe even by revoking the license.
In a nut shell (I have not seen with my eyes): My client has a house that she was living in and was going to rent her new house that her mother left her. She needed some major roof replacing, not sure why yet. She moved into the one she was going to rent since the roofer told her it would take less than a week. This was in August. Well, in her opinion they did a crappy job, they left the roof uncovered in a rain storm, the ceilings got destroyed. So they came in to fix the ceiling. The roofer. They then did a crappy job of that. Then the new floors that had been done were messed up, so they tried to strip them with gasoline( ![icon_eek.gif](upload://yuxgmvDDEGIQPAyP9sRnK0D0CCY.gif) ) Then of course the house reaked of it and the floors and ceiling looked even worse.
So I have been hired to look at this. Write a report, just like I normally do. Document any deficiencies. Give answeres to the Home Improvement Commisioners about what I saw.
Boy that sounds easier than the murder trials I testified for.
