Contractor did work without our approval!
Uhhg. I need to vent.
So we were in the process of getting bids from 3 roofers (to fix a small leak).
The first guy came to the house (recommended by a Realtor we know) while we were at work (which we approved because he did not need access to the house to see the leak) and left a voice mail with what he thought the problem was and what the price would be to fix it. We did not get a written estimate or contract.
I called him two days later (was traveling for work) and he said he was going tomorrow morning to fix the leak (love how he assumed he were picking him). I asked him to hold off as I wanted to talk to my husband that evening, but that I would call him in the morning.
Next morning I called him around 9am and left a voicemail asking him to hold off as we were having one more person that our insurance agent recommended come and take a look two days later.
Fast forward a few days (more travel for work) and I receive a voicemail from him saying he was already on the roof at 8am the morning I called and didn't get my voicemail asking him to hold off. He apparently already fixed it.
No written agreement, no signature, nothing! UUhhg!!!
