We recently had a new roof , all dual pane windows, new Hardy board siding and R-60 attic insulation installed . Most of the contractors are so busy that they will not even come to see what the job would entail and give a price. So, the smaller contractors May come out but they will not give a price until they actually come out about 6 months away. That leaves just a small handfull of contractors that could do the job in 1to 3 months away. We had a siding contractor install the Hardy board siding that took over 3 months to install. The 2 workers were south of the border types . One could only understand / speak only a few English words, while the other younger one NONE. The roofing contractor had just completed roofing one subdivision and was moving onto another one and sqeezed our home roof installation in. He had one white foreman that spoke Spanish and 8 workers that spoke ONLY Spanish. The windows were installed by a contractor who had 2 workers that spoke ONLY Spanish. The insulation contractor had 3 workers that ONLY Spanish. These workers had to use our bathroom quite often. About a month later , my wife had a few red spots on her legs.

Poor people of all colors and languages get lice and bedbugs. The contractors pick up these poverty stricken people, pay them poorly and then bring them into your home to do work. You were desperate for help they are desperate for work. Likely they put them up in some flea bag hotel for the night and then on to the next job. You could have paid 4 times the amount and gotten union paid workers with language and color more to your liking.
