Never Hire a Broke Contractor

If a contractor is broke and/or not busy, there are only two realistic explanations:

They are not very good at what they do, or

They don’t handle money well.

It seems a little cold, but reality can sometimes be chilly. If the contractor doesn’t handle money well, do you want to trust them to pay their subs? Don’t think you can solve their money problems by stepping in to teach them how to handle their finances better. It’s not your job and your efforts will not be appreciated. Just don’t.

Have you done this? We’d love to hear your story! Just reply and tell us.
