Canadian Contractor

 Thomas expresses how we all feel;
The customer was absolutely within his rights to cancel. He was in no state of mind to be making a decision like that. Shame on that contractor for trying to take advantage of this person! I’m pleased with this outcome. Work hadn’t started yet worn and 10 day cooling off period applied to this 100%.

Sir; I hope you recover from this attempt to take serious advantage of you, know that not all licensed and insured contractors are like this guy.
