Question: I have a question regarding your article on Licensed Contractors (“Licensed Contractor Often Required”, January 22). Do any of the rules you mention apply to DIY jobs? With the help of a carpenter friend who is not a contractor, I did more than one job on my house that was over the $ 500 limit.
Also, a few years ago I hired a contractor to level my manufactured home. The only change is that he is now out of level in different places. How long do I have to file a complaint? Unfortunately I paid in full and the contractor says any additional work will require more money.
