Ellis’s Book

"The seven chapters are sprinkled with anecdotes and case studies that walk the reader through the jungle of home improvement contracting. Hiring Contractors Without Going Through Hell unravels many of the myths, scams, and questions homeowners face in the unending battle to repair and improve with the help of contractors. Veterans and first-timers will appreciate Levinson's clear approach to contractor consumerism."
