Does anyone know of a website that offers home improvement deals?

Question by splattercheese: Does anyone know of a website that offers home improvement deals?
Dealnews.com has a similar setup to what I’m looking for but they don’t seem to have much in the way of home improvement. If there is no such site perhaps a few separate websites that have good deals for specific parts of a home, like bathroom, kitchen, yard/landscaping?
I have tried googling home improvement deals and end up getting mainly just advertisements for home improvement companies, dealnews.com actually has people snooping around the web for decent deals on things. But I can’t seem to find a home improvement site that does the same.

Home Improvement Contractors

Question by nymagic411: Do you know New York business law regarding home improvement contractors?
I signed a contract for an excavation contractor to specifically find a sewer spur and then dig a trench tothe house from the spur near the road. The contractor did not dig deep enough and left the job after digging for 2 days. On the 2nd day I told them it was 5 to 6 feet deeper than they were digging per town records and per fill added by a developer since the spur was put in 25 years ago. I asked for and got my deposit back but now they are trying to bill me for 2 days labor. I did not contract for a per diem rate to look for the spur. Our contract was specificly to find the spur so our plumber could tie in. After failing to find the spur on the first day I was called by their foreman who said they would dig as deep as necessary the next day. I took off the next day and repeatedly told the foreman and the crew how deep to dig but they dug no deeper than the first day only nore to the left. I am out the plumbers restocking fee for the pipe and so damage to my propertry by the digger.
Clavon- Thank you for your time but you misunderstood.
I asked them to stay and to dig deeper as promised. They tried to rip us off for an additional 4000.00 without justification. They left the job without my approval. The one page agreement spelled out what they were to do- which they did not. They violated the agreement, and caused property damage. Beware of bad contractors like this!

Unfortunatley labor does have to be billed for work that a signed contract was for.

Did you sign anything with that contractor? He did begin the work and at your request if I am not mistaken stopped ue to the code regulations for your town.

Did you ask them to comply with the town specs or just terminate the agreement? If this was at your request and labor was performed for two days you do have to pay them if that is the case.

Read your contract you signed, if if is just a quote and you agreed to what they wanted you need to just pay and unt your losses. This is a tax right off so you should be ok.

Sorry if this is not the answer you are looking for.
