Klaus - your apology is accepted and appreciated. I never asked for the problems I've encountered I am only trying to make people aware. People should be outraged when these things happen as taxpayers are the ones that suffer. I prevailed in rectifying the problem with the one contractor only because I pursued heavily and finally obtained all the documentation to prove I was right. I am currently in the process of doing the same with the second contractor and know I will eventually prevail. In the meantime though, it is the city building official that has made this so difficult. You see when a building official signs off on something (whether right or wrong) his word is like gold. You have to go to great lengths to have his answer overturned. Most people don’t realize there is a process they can pursue or they walk away because the process is time consuming and a financial burden. In my situation I have the facts and documents to prove he should not have signed off on the contractors work but now I have the hurdle in getting that overturned which is and has been a financial burden and has taken me away from my family many times while they are in Illinois and I’m in Marco trying to work this.Both of the jobs I had done have unfortunately turned into large problems which I have to deal with because I hired them. The government requires permits and inspections which would be fine if they did their jobs. When something goes wrong they look the other way and the tax payer is stuck with all of the expense and burden. Not everyone has the time or money to pursue things such as I have and would have given up long ago. They may end up with substandard work that in the end could cause harm.
