Hi,
We had our old deck torn down and now its about 3/4ths the way rebuilt. Our old deck had deck skirting which we asked the contractor to save and fix to the new deck. Now, he tells us that this task is not part of the contract and he will charge us extra for it. The contract has a line that says "Construct new deck the exact size and shape". I have two questions: (a) do you believe that this wording in the contract should cover the deck skirting? (b) how do I go about resolving this issue with the contractor? He doesn't seem to be in a mood to discuss the matter reasonably as he goofed up on a bunch of other areas and is running over cost already. Are there free or professional moderators who will mediate the dispute?
Thanks for your help,
Kris

If he is a licensed contractor, contact the contractors board in your area.

In our county there's a "home builder's association". Try them.
