Over Budget, Bleeding Continues
Our contractor has about doubled the costs he estimated to construct a deck. Before realizing how much we would be charged, my husband asked to have a sliding door from our bedroom to the deck replaced. On deciding to call off the remainder of the project, we told our contractor we didn't want the door at this time. A day or two later, the contractor said he'd ordered the door from Anderson and it was too late to call it off. This means that we would be responsible for the cost of the door and the associated costs to install it (which would include the costs of redoing the wall, since the replacement will be shorter and less wide than the old Peachtree unit. Any suggestions on how to proceed? Is it really true that this door can't be returned somehow? It's a standard two window slider, nothing custom. Thanks for your help.
