Remember, you have 3 business days from the time you signal your contract to cancel any contract if the sale is made at your home. The contractor can’t deprive you of this right by initiating work, selling your contract to a lender, or some other tactic. It is the public policy of this State that so as to safeguard the life, well being, property, and public welfare of its citizens, the business of home repair and remodeling is a matter affecting the general public curiosity. Any well-established contractor has a line of credit score to purchase supplies from his suppliers. Tell him you will be pleased to pay the material provider immediately.
