Check out a "stranger" before you give them money. Also it is best to pay directly for materials or supplies. Do you know that if the contractor gets materials from Home Depot etc and he doesnt pay that Home Depot can put a lien on your house? I had concrete driveway done on my yard and I paid the concrete truck driver myself. Always watch out and be careful when doing business--sometimes a deal is not a deal if you dont get anything for your money. If he is buying materials from Home Depot go with him and pay for the materials that will be delivered to your house.

Never, ever pay up front. If the person doing the job does not have the finances to do the job, then hire someone who does. Saving money can sometimes cost you more.
