In Minnesota, if you had work done by a residential contractor and now are unhappy with their work because of some defect, you need to follow the process detailed at Minnesota Statute Chapter 327A. In general, this means you need to give your contractor the opportunity to inspect and allow them the opportunity to repair. The statute also provides for a dispute resolution procedure. Oftentimes homeowners are frustrated when projects go bad, or do not meet their expectations and vow never to let “that contractor” back onto their property. Be cautious of this reaction as it may get in the way of your ability in the future to recover damages against “that contractor”. Call us if you have contractor problems, we can help.
