Took on a deck job out at Georgetown lake near Anaconda, Mt. it was a insurance job. Snow slide off the metal roof and wiped out the deck. While I was rebuilding the deck a man came and wanted me to build him a deck as well and build a garage. So I made out a bid and contract for both projects. I should have saw it coming when at first there was a problem getting a deposit and a signature on the contract but he paid the deposit and would sign after looking at the bid closer. so naturally I started work got the concrete done. I approached the customer at that time and wanted the draw for framing and a signature figured since he paid the deposit on the job he then agreed to my price. He decided not to pay the next draw. I pulled off the job.next day I was at another job and this ******* came and started shoving me around yelling and screaming that I was ripping him off. I then filed assault charges my guy working for me saw it all. Two weeks later He called me up said he would sign and pay the framing draw but only part of it each day I showed up to work. I went for this because I had 3grand in materials tied up in the job already, in good faith that he would pay. day one showed up finished a log wall he paid me $1000. $500 in the morning $500 when I left. Next day $500 in the morning and when I was ready to leave He failed to show upto pay me. So when I came to sheet the roof the next day I wanted $1000 before work began He did'nt want to pay. so I pulled off the job I was done. fortunately I had plenty of work to cover the money I lost managed to get some money from him but at a great cost. Wish I could read these people better to weed out that bad ones.
