That is exactly what my estimate said, about 10 words and how much it cost. I have learned so much. When you say the state of MD. will back you 100%, it is not 100% guaranteed, even if he is licensed. This has been ongoing for quite some time, and I am still writing letters, taking pictures, answering letters from the DLLR, etc. It is a long and tedious course, but if it will help one other person from having to deal with this same contractor, I would stay up for days filling out forms just to report him. I did go to him first just to be fair, and then when he couldn't or WOULDN'T see anything wrong with the patio, that is when the big guns came out. I don't know how this guy sleeps at night! I just want my patio done right, but it doesn't have to be done in one day. I am a fair person and that is all I wanted in return, a good job for the money I paid. Some people just have no conscience! Thanks again, guys. Anne
