Never pay contractors until the job is done.  A draw at a half way point, or you buy materials, OK, but never pay up front.  Learned that one the hard way.  Fortunately, the Sheriff Deputy that came out was an excellent bully.  And I mean that in a complimentary way.  The contractor showed up the next day and started working.  As the Deputy said:  Never pay up front.


That place has really come along.  Love those fruit trees.

Really complicated story, but the short of it is that the vinyl wasn’t available in Texas. I was to buy it in SC and bring it the next time I came. The guy asked if I could pay now? He swore he’d finish the job.

Well, I hope it works out for you.  Suing will only cost you time and money, even when you win.  If he is a licensed contractor, you can threaten to complain to the state contracting authority or Attorney General, whatever, and that is some leverage, but that's about it.  Next time, "when the job is done."
