The vast majority of contractors are honest, hardworking folks who want to provide quality builds and renovations to their clients. However, just as there are bad apples in all industries, North Carolina also has its share of shady operators looking to take advantage of homeowners.
Owners often hire construction companies to build their houses or office buildings or to renovate existing properties. Many of them take their time to ask for proof of licensing and insurance and to request work references before they hire them. This isn't always good enough though. Even with customers proceed cautiously, they often encounter problems that result in them having to file a lawsuit against their contractor.
